PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Fire Spin is Charizard’s best fast move and strictly superior to Ember.

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

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

  • 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.

  • Dragon Breath and Dragon Claw can work as a pseudo-dragon attacker, but are best reserved for Mega Charizard X.
  • Return has no purposes on offensive Charizard.

PVE Overview

Mega Charizard Y may not be as cool-looking as Mega Charizard X, but due to how stats translate into Pokemon Go it is the stronger variant. The lack of a Flying-type charge move is somewhat unfortunate, since Mega Charizard Y has the potential to be an optimal Flying-type attacker. Regardless, this is the go-to option whenever Fire-type attackers are needed, as long as Mega Energy is available. 

Long-term, Mega Charizard Y will have the second highest DPS among the Fire-DPS Mega Evolutions. It will fall a bit behind Mega Blaziken, but also has higher TDO and a different sub-typing to differentiate itself, which also means a different secondary type boost.

PvP Moveset Explanation

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

Fire Spin deals more damage with STAB, while Wing Attack offers slightly more energy generation. Either can work depending on preferred coverage. Dragon Breath is a powerful move, but lacks STAB, and falls behind vs neutral opponents. 

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 Y. Dragon Claw costs less energy, and can be used frequently.
