PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Metal Claw + Sacred Sword allows Cobalion to hit for Super Effective STAB damage against Rock and Ice-types.
  • Metal Claw pairs with Iron Head to make Cobailion a reasonable Steel-type attacker, though since Steel and Fighting have such overlapping coverage, this set will see less use.
  • Zen Headbutt is just worse than Metal Claw, so there's no real argument towards using it, but Sacred Sword is so strong that this pair has higher DPS than the double Steel set.
  • Close Combat is worse in every way than the exclusive Sacred Sword. It's also worse than Iron Head where they would both be Super Effective.
  • Stone Edge is a good charge move, but lacking STAB puts it behind the other options. 

PVE Overview

Cobalion's unimpressive stats and lack of a Fighting-type fast move in it's learnset keeps Cobalion from achieving anything truely great. Even against Regice or Regirock where Cobalion can utilize Metal Claw + Sacred Sword for a dual Super Effective STAB moveset, there's plenty of Pokemon that will be better suited.

Cobalion walks so that Terrakion can fly (In this analogy, Virizion is also walking, maybe even crawling). Sacred Sword had to be balanced around all three legendaries in the Sword of Justice trio, and maybe even Keldeo too. For this reason, Sacred Sword Cobalion isn't enough to make it a huge PvE force.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Metal Claw + Sacred Sword and Stone Edge or Iron Head

Metal Claw is the only real option available, since Zen Headbutt is awful for PvP. 

All of Cobalion's charge moves can be useful depending on the format. Sacred Sword is absolutely your first choice, as it's Cobalion's strongest standalone move. Stone Edge and Iron Head are basically down to preference, though Stone Edge is the stronger move in a vacuum.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: N/A

As of right now the only way to obtain Cobalion is through raids, and even if traded to reroll its IVs, the CP would still be too high to qualify for Great League. Maybe in the future Cobalion will be obtainable through Research Breakthrough, in which case it can be eligible for this league. 

Ultra League: 3 / 5

Despite Sacred Sword's strength, Cobalion is unable to beat the most common Steel-types in even shield scenarios. While it's certainly not unusable, it ends up performing like Registeel, but worse in pretty much all scenarios, even giving up some very valuable wins. Don't rush to invest in Cobalion.

Master League: 2 / 5

Steel-types are incredibly common in Master League, with incredible resistances making them very strong. As such, you might expect Cobalion, a mon that would theoretically be an anti-Steel Steel-type, to be very powerful. Sadly, it just doesn't make the cut, as either a Steel or a Fighter. It's probably better to look elsewhere on this one.
