PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Tail should be paired with Outrage for the flagship Dragon-type moveset.
  • Mud Shot should be paired with Earthquake for a workable Ground-type moveset.
  • Fire Blast has no offensive relevance.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Tail does more than twice as much damage per hit as Mud Shot.
  • Outrage is Garchomp's only 2-bar charged move. At least this can keep the attacker honest.
  • Earthquake and Fire Blast are both 1-bar charged moves that are extremely easy to dodge.

PVE Overview

Garchomp is perhaps one of the most anticipated non legendary Pokemon of Gen 4, and those who grew up with the main series games vividly remember fighting it (and maybe using it). Does Garchomp leave a similar impression on Pokemon GO? Maybe if it had been released earlier. It's a solid Dragon attacker in a sea of other great Dragon attackers, and it's a top Ground attacker that has few use cases due to Ground's abysmal moves. It's a great Pokemon, but there's still room for improvement.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Mud Shot + Earthquake and Outrage

Mud Shot’s (1.5 DPT/4.5 EPT) fantastic energy gain combined with two very powerful (but expensive) charged moves in Earthquake (120 power, 65 energy) and Outrage (110 power, 60 energy) make Garchomp a terrifying threat. He’s at his best when your opponent has no shields, so he should be saved until the end of a game to close it out. 

Dragon Tail (3 DPT/3.33 EPT) is a solid move, but it doesn't have enough synergy with Garchomp's costly options to make it worth running. Fire Blast (140 power, 80 energy) is just too expensive to be worth using, and lacks the STAB of Garchomp's other two moves.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

While Garchomp has a super strong collection of moves, the fact that it loses to so many top tier Pokémon (Azumarill, Medicham, Altaria, Deoxys-Defense, Cresselia, and to a lesser degree Venusaur and Skarmory) make it all but unusable down in Great League.

Ultra League: 3 / 5

Fantastic shields-down matchups against Melmetal, Heatran, Dialga, and Giratina-Origin make Garchomp a pretty strong choice in Ultra League.

Master League: 5 / 5

Oh man. Finally, the land shark cometh, and he’s as strong as expected. Easily the best Pokémon in Master when your opponent’s shields are down, Garchomp beats Dialga, Giratina, Melmetal, Dragonite, Metagross, Tyranitar, Lucario, Kyogre….the list goes on and on. While there are a few Pokémon Garchomp will have a rough time against (it really, really doesn’t like Mamoswine), Garchomp is more than a worthy addition to your team.
