PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Astonish is just bad, making Feint Attack Amoonguss's Fast Move of choice.
  • Foul Play is a good move, and it's the only available Charge Move that has synergy with Feint Attack.
  • Grass Knot is stronger, and has better coverage than Sludge Bomb.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Astonish is just bad, making Feint Attack Amoonguss's Fast Move of choice.
  • Grass Knot has a high base power, decent coverage, and STAB, making it the move of choice.
  • Sludge Bomb is another great choice, though it's a bit weaker and tends to be resisted by a lot of threats.
  • Foul Play is a bit weak and gives redundant coverage, but it hits gym cleaners such as Metagross and Latios fairly hard.

PVE Overview

This Pokeball 'shroom doesn't really have much going for it, unfortunately. It has low attack, an exceedingly common dual-typing, and no STAB quick move. It does have a really nice Dark Type move combo, but it's terribly outclassed in that regard. It's okay on defense, but is still easily bulldozed by many common gym cleaners.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Feint Attack+Grass Knot and Foul Play OR Sludge Bomb

Feint Attack has good neutral coverage, solid counter-coverage for Amoonguss against Psychic Types, and sports a nice 3 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3 EPT (Energy Per Turn), making it nicely rounded. Amoonguss's main charged move is Grass Knot (90 Power/50 Energy) due to its decent power/energy cost, and good STAB coverage. The second move of choice is Foul Play (70 Power/45 Energy). While a bit weaker than Grass Knot, especially due to the lack of STAB, it is Amoonguss's cheapest move, and allows it to put large dents in the aforementioned Psychic Types. Just note that Amoonguss is generally eaten alive by Confusion users, so be careful when using its coverage!

Sludge Bomb (80 Power/50 Energy) is another STAB move that is definitely usable, but Amoonguss ends up similar to Venusaur with this move, which leaves it horribly outclassed.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2.5 / 5

Amoonguss is a bit of an odd Pokemon. It seems like it wants to fight its Psychic Type counters, though it really can't if they're packing Confusion. As a Grass/Poison Type in a sea of the same, its access to a fairly nice Dark Type attacking set is its only real niche, as it's outclassed by monsters such as Venusaur if it tries anything different. That said; Amoonguss can fill in some odd niches and score surprisingly hard hits against Psychic or Ghost Types that switch into it expecting an easy win.

Ultra League: 1.5 / 5

Amoonguss can use its Dark Type moves to put a few dents into Giratina and a few of its counters, but they're very small dents.

Master League: 1 / 5

Again: it can surprise a handful of threats with some Dark power, but it really isn't "good" by any stretch.
