PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Fury Cutter and Bug Buzz make Galvantula usable as a Bug Type attacker
  • Volt Swith pairs with Discharge can go together for an Electric moveset, but this is not that strong.

  • Energy Ball and Cross Poison are basically a hard "No".

  • Lunge is worse in PvE.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Volt Switch is outstanding on defense.
  • Fury Cutter is bad on defense.
  • Discharge is a powerful 3-bar move, but its synergy isn't great with Volt Switch.
  • Cross Poison is 3-bar and off-type coverage from Volt Switch, but it's weak and widely resisted.
  • Bug Buzz is a STAB move, but it's resisted by basically anything that's going to switch into Galvantula.
  • Energy Ball is easy to dodge, but can nail Rock-type attackers.
  • Lunge shouldn't be used in PvE.

PVE Overview

The Electric Tarantula is here at last! Too bad it's in such an awkward position!

Galvantula's attack is too low to hit top-tier power on offense, and its movesets don't offer it much. It can fill in holes in your teams, but it's not exactly a top-tier choice for anything that it can do. On defense, it has some great moveset options thanks to a sudden stealth-change right before release (Charge Beam>Volt Switch, Thunder>Discharge), but it's too frail to be worth much.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Volt Switch + Discharge and Lunge

Volt Switch is usually preferred for its superior damage output, though Fury Cutter has a niche with Bug-type coverage.

Discharge is Galvantula's primary charge move, benefits from STAB, and provides solid Electric-type coverage. Bug Buzz also gets STAB, and can hit quite hard against Grass-types what would resist Electric-type attacks. Cross Poison doesn't provide much value other than baiting shields with its lesser energy cost. Energy Ball provides niche Grass-type coverage, though this usually is not enough for Galvantula to deal with Ground and Rock-type opponents. The addition of Lunge following the GBL Season 4 update gives Galvantula additional utility, and is recommended over other charge moves for that reason. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3.5 / 5

Galvantula sports an uncommon Electric/Bug typing, but poor bulk. It became quite popular in Go Battle League as an answer to the popular usage of Azumarill and Registeel, being able to beat either when using equal amounts of shields. Volt Switch is quite powerful with STAB and generates energy quickly, while access to Bug Buzz helps to answer Grass-types that would resist Electric-type attacks. Unfortunately its very unappealing fragility causes it to lose battles against Pokemon with high damage output, such as against Charm and Dragon Breath users. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Galvantula has a max CP of 2206, which is insufficient for Ultra League. While it can claim wins against certain Pokemon (mainly Water-types) in this league, it also suffers from losses against most of the meta. 

Master League: 0 / 5

You wouldn't send a spider to fight a dragon, would you?
