PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Bug Bite features the superior performance, but by a very narrow margin.
  • Poison Jab trails right behind, but its typing may give it advantages depending on the opponent. 
  • Sludge Bomb is recommended for its strong damage output and 2-bar efficiency.  
  • X-Scissor doesn't deals as much damage but has a typing niche against Psychic and Dark Pokemon. 
  • Megahorn is a step down and also slower as 1-bar move. 
  • Gyro Ball has no use on offense. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Poison Jab performs better on defense due to its higher base damage. 
  • Bug Bite offers slightly more useful coverage, but its damage is still inferior.
  • Sludge Bomb is the most difficult to dodge, and hits quite hard as a 2-bar move. 
  • X-Scissor as a 3-bar can be spammed on defense, and hurts Psychic-type attackers. 
  • Megahorn is a 1-bar move, which is less likely to be used before Scolipede faints. 
  • Gyro Ball is very slow on defense and easy to dodge. 

PVE Overview

Scolipede's arrival in Pokemon Go caught many by surprise, though its stats and movepool aren't exactly impressive for the Pokemon Go meta. While it's not the best in either of its typing categories, it can still perform decently if you ever need a Bug or Poison attacker.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Poison Jab + Megahorn and X-Scissor or Sludge Bomb

Poison Jab offers superior energy generation, but Bug Bite can still be viable if Bug-type coverage is preferable, or if the former would be resisted. 

X-Scissor costs the least amount of energy, gets STAB, and can be used frequently to either bait shields or chip away at the opponent. Sludge Bomb provides strong Poison-type coverage, hits quite hard with STAB, and costs a modest amount of energy. Megahorn is the main niche for Scolipede, as it hits very hard with STAB, and lets Scolipede stand out from other Bugs and Poison-types. Gyro Ball is a mediocre move, costs a steep amount of energy, and doesn't provide much value other than targetting Scolipede's weakness to Rock-types. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3 / 5

Scolipede is another Pokemon sharing the Bug/Poison typing, with somewhat below-average bulk, and access to the powerful Megahorn. While other Bug-types tend to struggle due to unimpressive movesets, Scolipede stands out with a decently high ATK stat and the potential to deal major STAB damage with Megahorn. Poison typing defensively is a plus, as resistances to Counter and Charm can come in handy. Megahorn also threatens Psychic-types that would threaten Scolipede, though this can also causes losses for Scolipede if shielded. If you decide to go with the traditional coverage moveset involving X-Scissor and Sludge Bomb, Beedrill also sports that same moveset but features slightly better bulk. Scolipede's niche is mainly focused on Megahorn. 

Ultra League: 1.5 / 5

With a max CP of 2447, Scolipede just barely falls short of the CP cap of Ultra League. Unfortunately Scolipede performs pooly in this meta where Dragons and Steel-types are ubiquitous. Its niche mostly comes down to beating Grass and Fairy-types, as bulky meta Psychic-types can outlast Scolipede through sheer bulk and advantages against Scolipede's Poison typing. 

Master League: 0 / 5

This bug ain't messin with no dragons in the big league.
