PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Fire Fang is Reshiram's strongest fast move, and pairs well with Overheat to fulfill a Fire-type role.
  • Dragon Breath isn't too far behind in performance, and can pair with Draco Meteor to fulfill a Dragon-type role if needed. 
  • Stone Edge sports the fastest damage window and is quite powerful, but lacks STAB. 
  • Crunch can be used more frequently, but has the worst damage output without STAB. 

PVE Overview

Reshiram is the first of the Tao Trio to arrive in Pokemon Go, and is a fan favorite partly due to it being a mascot of the Pokemon Black game. With a very high ATK stat, very solid stats overall, and a powerful moveset, Reshiram debuts as the best Fire-type in the PvE scene at the time of its release (excluding Shadows). Definitely look to add this Pokemon to your arsenal, especially if you're lacking Fire-type attackers.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Dragon Breath + Crunch and Overheat

Dragon Breath is preferred for its powerful STAB damage output and average energy generation. Fire Fang is inferior stat-wise, but also benefits from STAB, and is more threatening against Steel-types.

Crunch costs the least amount of energy, and can be useful to bait shields and potentially drop Defense to further bolster Reshiram's powerful fast move pressure. Overheat is an incredibly powerful nuke that doesn't have a prohibitively expensive cost, blasting apart Steel- and Fairy-type Pokemon that resist Dragon Breath. Draco Meteor can be chosen to pick up surprise KOes on Kyogre and other Dragon-type Pokemon, but it is very expensive and doesn't really provide additional coverage. Stone Edge can nail Togekiss without dropping Reshiram's Attack, and can land a surprise KO against Ho-Oh, but is generally outclassed by Overheat.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: N/A

Reshiram's CP is too high for Great League. 

Ultra League: 2.5 / 5

Reshiram's high offensive stats result in poor bulk due to the CP cap in Ultra League, and is difficult to use against various meta picks in this league. However, its powerful charge moves still make it a significant threat if unshielded. 

Master League: 3.5 / 5

Reshiram boasts having equal stats to Dialga and Reshiram, as well as their oppressive Dragon Breath pressure. Thanks to its Fire secondary type, Reshiram possesses nigh unresisted coverage and can threaten just about any Pokemon in the game. It is also one of the two Dragon types in Master League to not be weak to Fairy, allowing it to stand up to Togekiss and Zacian. Unfortunately, Reshiram struggles to truly stand out due to competition from the likes of Palkia, Zekrom, Dialga, and Garchomp. Like Reshiram, they offer high Dragon-type fast move pressure. However, each of them offer more defined positive matchups in the context of the metagame, allowing them to fit into teams more easily.

Reshiram's niche lies in that its negative matchups aren't as pronounced compared to other Dragons, making it a safer choice as a safe switch. The ubiquity of Dialga can somewhat throw a wrench to this niche, but Reshiram's ability to bait out Dialga specifically can be useful for letting a potential Dragon-type teammate to shine. Additionally, Reshiram is still a great closer, as an unshielded Overheat can disintegrate most things that don't resist it, and heavily dent most Pokemon that do.
