PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Smack Down pairs with Rock Slide for maximum Rock-Type power
  • Mud Slap isn't as useful.
  • Solar Beam and Heavy Slam lack type-synergy and lag behind as a result.
  • Super Power lacks synergy on offense.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Mud Slap is generally the better choice for defense because it hits so many types for Super Effective damage. That said, Smack Down does too!
  • Rock Slide is the move of choice next to Mud Slap, as Rock and Ground are fairly synergetic together.
  • Heavy Slam and Super Power can fit with either Fast Move, though they may tend to be a bit less effective.
  • Solar Beam is painfully slow. If Gigalith gets it off, it will hit hard and basically delete many Water or Ground Type counters, but that's probably not going to happen.

PVE Overview

Gigalith is basically a slightly worse non-Rock Wrecker Rhyperior without the Ground-Type sub-typing. In short; it's a perfectly fine choice as a Rock Type attacker, but it does lag behind many of its contemporaries; especially the rock-type bulldozer that is Rampardos. It can be a good budget option if you happen to get a good one as it doesn't need event moves, isn't a Legendary, doesn't need a special evolution item, and can be evolved for free if traded.

On defense it's bulky, but a bit too easy to exploit due to Rock's plethora of weaknesses. Again, it's about like non-Rock Wrecker Rhyperior, but without the two double-weaknesses tacked on.

But with all that said; Gigalith looks amazing!

PvP Moveset Explanation

Smack Down or Mud Slap + Rock Slide and Superpower

Smack Down is superior to Mud Slap in terms of damage output, not to mention STAB, but the latter offers extra coverage. Both have the same energy generation. 

Rock Slide is a strong charge move that gets STAB and offers relevant coverage. Superpower is a bit risky to use due to its self-debuff effects, but its valuable coverage and respectable damage can be worth it if played correctly. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1.5 / 5

Gigalith as a pure Rock-type Pokemon is quite vulnerable in the meta, which along with its unimpressive bulk, makes it difficult to use. Slow energy generation also limits usage of Gigalith's powerful charge moves, which limits its ability to pressure shields. This causes Gigalith to lose many matchups in the 1-shield scenario, but its high STAB damage output from its fast moves helps flip some potentially negative matchups into wins if given both shields. Overall Gigalith looks a lot cooler than it performs in battle. 

Ultra League: 1.5 / 5

Gigalith in a way lives in the shadows of prevalent Steel-types in this league, though it has a niche against opponents such as Fire and Ice Pokemon. It should also be noted that Rock-typing defensively is very vulnerable, and that problem in Great League hasn't left Gigalith in Ultra League either. 

Master League: 1 / 5

A max CP of 3228 is somewhat underwhelming when considering various Pokemon in this league flex superior stats. Rock-typing both offensively and defensively isn't as valuable in this league, where Dragons and Steel-types are ubiquitous. At least Gigalith looks really tough.
