PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Smack Down should be paired with Rock Wrecker for high-tier Rock DPS.

  • Mud Slap should go with Earthquake for similarly high-tier Ground DPS.

  • Surf really doesn't have much of a place on an offensive Rhyperior.

  • Stone Edge is inferior

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Mud Slap is a bit better than Smack Down, but both are defensively solid

  • Rock Wrecker is a hard-hitting 2 bar move, and a great defensive choice

  • Surf is a great 2 bar move, but it’s weak vs. Water and Grass types.

  • Stone Edge has an early damage window, but being one-bar is a liability on a Pokemon with two 2x weaknesses

  • Earthquake is slow and easy to dodge.

PVE Overview

Rhydon already had great stats, but its brand new evolution has superior ones, plus STAB movesets of both its types.

With Rock-type moves, its performance was initially very similar to that of legacy Tyranitar, and that was welcome news for those who lacked the necessary event-exclusive move. And then it received Rock Wrecker and became one of the best Rock Type attackers in the game. As of its Community Day, it rose to become the second highest Rock Type DPS with a lot more TDO than the otherwise king, Rampardos.

Rhyperior is also very tanky, but its potential as a defender is ruined by the easily exploitable double weaknesses to Grass and Water. The weakness to Fighting doesn’t help either.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Smack Down or Mud Slap + Rock Wrecker* and Surf or Superpower

Smack Down is superior to Mud Slap in terms of damage output, however the latter provides different type coverage, which can be more preferable depending on how the player wants to use Rhyperior. Both fast moves suffer from below average energy generation. 

Rock Wrecker is a Community Day exclusive move, and is highly recommended for its incredible damage output and very high DPE value. Surf ties for the least amount of energy cost, and deals respectable damage. Superpower provides wide coverage, however its self-debuff effects makes it more difficult to use. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1.5 / 5

Rhyperior as a Ground/Rock Pokemon is difficult to use in Great League with the ubiquity of Water and Grass-type Pokemon. While its charge moves are very favorable and its stat distribution relatively average, the major liability of being doubly weak to Water and Grass makes it way too risky to use, especially when considering other competitors in its role. 

Ultra League: 1.5 / 5

Rhyperior's typing and moveset is less relevant in a meta dominated by Giratina. While it can be quite effective against popular Steel-types, other Pokemon can fulfill this role without Rhyperior's two double weaknesses. 

Mater League: 4 / 5

With the plethora of dragons and the like at the top of the tier threatening away most of its prime counters, Rhyperior can bring out its good moveset and great bulk to wall unprepared teams. A solid prime or counter-pick due to its unique skill-set and huge defense, Rhyperior is definitely a good pick for the tier, taking down big names like Lugia and Dragonite with ease. However, it huge bulk is easily invalidated by its long list of weaknesses and double-weaknesses, making it require more team support than some other Pokemon that have similar functions in the tier. The addition of Rock Wrecker following its Community Day gives Rhyperior some much needed firepower, and enables it to threaten various meta picks for major damage.
