PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Mud Slap is preferable since Excadrill is primarily used as a Ground-type attacker.
  • Metal Claw in a nutshell performs better from a stats perspective, but isn't as useful in practice. 
  • Drill Run is the main selling feature for Excadrill, and pairs well with Mud Slap to fulfull a Ground-type role. 
  • Earthquake is an inferior move, and should be TM'd if possible. 
  • Iron Head can pair with Metal Claw if a Steel-type attacker is needed, but Excadrill isn't the best for this role. 
  • Rock Slide lacks STAB and has little use. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Mud Slap is superior to Metal Claw on defense thanks to its significantly higher base power. 
  • Iron Head sports the earliest damage window, and is the hardest to dodge. 
  • Rock Slide doesn't get STAB, but it is hard to dodge and offers greater coverage. 
  • Drill Run is a bit slower than the others, but still performs okay on defense.
  • Earthquake is a slow 1-bar move and should be TM'd. 

PVE Overview

For a long time, Excadrill was anticipated as a Ground-type attacker with real potential. This is due to its decent stats and access to Drill Run, which is a much better attack than the widely distributed Earthquake. And then Excadrill was released, and met those anticipations beautifully. Excadrill manages to squeeze its way into the #1 spot as the Ground-type DPS king thanks to the power of Drill Run, surpassing even Groudon and Garchomp for this role. While its superiority won't last forever, its status as a non-legendary makes it a much more affordable option in an otherwise nearly barren type.
