PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Fire Spin is the best fast move on offense, and is useful when a Fire-type role is needed. 
  • Zen Headbutt is a step down overall, but useful for a Psychic-type role. 
  • Scratch is useless.
  • Psychic is the strongest charge move available, and pairs with Zen Headbutt
  • Flamethrower likewise pairs with Fire Spin when Fire-typing is desired. 
  • Fire Blast is a downgrade, and Flame Charge is even worse. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Fire Spin offers slightly more defensive damage output, but is more likely to be resisted by attackers.
  • Zen Headbutt is less likely to be resisted, but Dark-type attackers laugh at this. 
  • Scratch doesn't get STAB, nor can it be Super Effective vs anything. 
  • Psychic is the hardest to dodge, and also deals considerable STAB damage.
  • Flamethrower falls a bit behind in terms of damage, but offers Fire-type coverage.
  • Flame Charge can be used frequently as a 3-bar move, but is painfully slow and easily dodged. 
  • Fireblast is a poor choice for defense. 

PVE Overview

Delphox is the Kalos Fire-starter of Gen 6, being quite popular among players who enjoyed Pokemon X and Y. Unfortunately upon its introduction into Pokemon Go, numerous superior Fire-types and Psychic-types have already been released, which makes Delphox mostly a dex filler.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Fire Spin + Flame Charge and Psychic

Fire Spin benefits from STAB and sports slightly above energy generation. Zen Headbutt gets STAB but its damage output and energy gains are terrible. Scratch doesn't get STAB nor can it be Super Effective, on top of also tying for the worst energy generation in the game. 

Flame Charge isn't particularly powerful and costs a modest amount of energy, but guarantees a +1 self buff that can ramp up damage and pressure over time. Flamethrower is stronger, but costs slightly more energy and doesn't provide a self buff. Psychic is recommended for its Psychic-type coverage, and also gets STAB. Fire Blast demands too much energy to use. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1.5 / 5

Delphox sports an interesting Fire/Psychic typing, with high offensive stats and consequently poor bulk. Unfortunately its defensive typing doesn't synergize very well to cover their weaknesses, leaving this fox rather vulnerable against the meta. A relatively slow moveset and unimpressive energy generation holds Delphox back compared to the rest of the meta, even causing unexpected losses. Wins are largely against Grass-types and certain Steel-types, however struggles against Machamp, Shiftry, Meganium, and Melmetal (as well as other Pokemon) given a typing advantage makes it difficult to justify its use.

Ultra League: 2.5 / 5

Common usage of Grass, Steel, Bug, and Fairy Pokemon in this league gives Delphox various favorable matchups. Outside of matchups with typing advantages, Delphox tends to struggle against the rest of the meta, for similar reasons that plagued it in Great League. 

Master League: 1.5 / 5

Delphox would appreciate more stats in Master League, trailing behind various legendaries and pseudo-legendaries. Unfortunately its slow moveset and fragile bulk result in mostly wins against Steel-types, and losses against most of the rest of the meta. Difficulties against Mamoswine, Togekiss, and Magnezone are discouraging for Delphox, and it's likely a moveset upgrade will be needed to see more play out of this fox.
