PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Confusion and Psychic* make for top-tier Psychic DPS
  • Future Sight can replace the legacy Psychic* in that role, but it does weaken Alakazam's performance. 
  • Psycho Cut provides better energy gains and dodging and may be situationally superior, but it's generally behind Confusion in terms of DPS
  • Counter* goes with Focus Blast to make Alakazam a high-DPS pseudo-Fighting Type attacker, but it's really too frail to reliably throw out a charged move, and isn't exceptional in the role.
  • Shadow Ball can pump out some Ghost Type DPS, but it's not fantastic.
  • Dazzling Gleam* is a decent move, but it's lackluster on Shadow Alakazam
  • Fire Punch is basically worthless here.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Confusion is the top choice for defense, as it's one of the best defensive moves period.
  • Counter* can provide some decent counter-coverage, as the name suggests.
  • Dazzling Gleam* or Shadow Ball both work, though Fire Punch's bring 3-bar means it's generally best
  • Psychic* is another decent choice, but mono-typing is not great on defense.
  • Future Sight and Focus Blast will probably never get to be used, and Psycho Cut is just plainly inferior.

PVE Overview

Shadow Alakazam sits on a very interesting and unstable throne. It technically has the highest Psychic Type DPS in the game with its legacy Psychic moveset generally speaking, surpassing even Deoxys-A and Psystrike Mewtwo, but its advantage over the later is so miniscule that it's not really worth raising unless you're desperate for a Psychic attacker due to just how much lower its TDO is. To say the least, it's a significant drop.

...and while Shadow Alakazam may look cool standing atop a gym, it's an atrocious defender due to how frail it is.
