PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Dragon Breath and Dragon Claw make Mega Charizard X a viable Dragon Type Mega Evolution.

  • Fire Spin and Blast Burn makes Charizard one of the strongest Fire-type attackers.

  • Wing Attack is preferable to Air Slash and equal to Fire Spin if both have the same effectiveness.

  • Overheat is Charizard's best non-exclusive charged move and beats Fire Blast soundly.

  • Flamethrower has less cycle DPS than Overheat and is just a worse Blast Burn, but has advantages due to multiple charge bars.

  • Ember is inferior.
  • Return has no purposes on offensive Charizard.

PVE Overview

Unquestionably one of the coolest looking Mega Pokemon, Mega Charizard X is a major fan favorite across every Pokemon game that it exists in. Unfortunately due to the way stats translate into Pokemon Go, Mega Charizard X takes the back seat behind Mega Charizard Y as the better Fire-type attacker, which is unfortunate. However, with Dragon Breath it can claim the throne of the Dragon Type Mega King... for the moment.

As a Mega, Mega Charizard X has the advantage of boosting both Fire and Dragon attacks for its team mates, with the later in particular being extremely valuable in a lot of high-profile raids. In this regard it can be very useful if used for the boosts that it grants to its team mates, which can be especially valuable in large groups. However, it's already outclassed in fire DPS by Mega Charizard Y, as previously stated, and even more powerful fire type Megas like Mega Blaziken are still to come. On the other side of the spectrum, it is expected to have competition from power-house dragons like Mega Salamence and Mega Rayquaza, making Mega Charizard X's absolute prospects a little bit bleak.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Dragon Breath* or Fire Spin + Blast Burn and Dragon Claw

Dragon Breath benefits from STAB and offers the most damage output, while providing average energy generation. Fire Spin also gets STAB, and offers Fire-type coverage. Mega Charizard X does not have a Flying sub-typing, so its Flying-type fast moves are generally not recommended. 

Blast Burn is a limited to Community Day events and Elite TMs, but is an incredibly powerful move, highly energy efficient, and almost mandatory for optimal use of Mega Charizard X. Dragon Claw costs less energy, benefits from STAB, and can be used frequently.
