PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Fire Spin is better move stats-wise, and is ideal for Chandelure's role as a Fire-type attacker.
  • Hex isn't the best Ghost-type move, but is absolutely necessary if Chandelure is to be used as a Ghost-type attacker. 
  • Incinerate is notoriously slow and weaker than Fire Spin in practice generally speaking
  • Shadow Ball offers the highest damage output and is the bread and butter move for Ghosts.
  • Overheat is terrific for the Fire-type role, but somewhat inferior when hitting for neutral damage. 
  • Flame Charge is a poor tool for an offensive Chandelure
  • Energy Ball has no use on Chandelure, TM this. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Incinerate hits hardest on defense and is the superior to Hex and Fire Spin
  • Shadow Ball has the earliest damage window and also provides mostly neutral coverage. 
  • Flame Charge is great for its low cost, allowing it to come out very often
  • Energy Ball is the easiest to dodge and deals the least amount of damage, but also has counter-coverage against Water and Rock Types
  • Overheat might not be used before Chandelure faints as a 1-bar move. 

PVE Overview

Chandelure is a fan-favorite from Gen 5, and has been blessed in Pokemon Go with a good moveset. Having superior stats to Gengar minus the Poison-typing makes Chandelure considerably more bulky and overall better, though Gengar is still narrowly better in Ghost-type DPS due to its moveset. It also competes with Blaziken in terms of Fire Type DPS, making it one of the best non-shadow/non-mega Fire Type Pokemon in the game.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Incinerate + Shadow Ball and Flame Charge

Incinerate boasts the best stats in terms of overall damage output and energy generation, but has a painfully slow animation that lasts 5 turns. Fire Spin is inferior stat-wise, notably in energy gains. Hex falls behind in damage output, but has its niche as a Ghost-type move that's largely unresisted. 

Shadow Ball benefits from STAB to threaten potentially massive damage, but costs quite a bit of energy. Flame Charge is the cheapest charge move available energy-wise, though not by much, but guarantees a +1 ATK buff that can increase pressure on the opponent. Energy Ball lacks STAB, but can be chosen for its coverage against many of Chandelure's weaknesses. Overheat is the most powerful option available, but is risky to use due to its self-debuff. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2.5 / 5

Chandelure shares the same typing as the popular Alolan Marowak, and thusly competes for its role. Unfortunately Chandelure lacks cheap charge move options to bait shields or apply faster pressure, and high offensive stats results in poor bulk. It's still a strong option when given a favorable matchup with typing advantages, but likewise the opposite can be argued for when things don't go well. 

Ultra League: 2.5 / 5

Chandelure has its niche in Ultra League as a Ghost/Fire Pokemon since Alolan Marowak lacks stats, but still strugges against certain meta picks due to its cumbersome moveset and vulnerable bulk. For example, Chandelure's powerful moves and typing should be favorable against Magnezone, but the latter's faster moveset can take advantage of Chandelure's squishy bulk unless both shields are used. 

Master League: 2.5 / 5

A max CP of 3268 isn't particularly impressive when considering the various legendaries and pseudo-legendaries that exist in this league, but Chandelure does stand out with its typing and coverage. Water-types, Dragon-types, and Snorlax are the main threats, while other matchups can be played out depending on shield usage.
