PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Snarl pairs well with Night Slash to fulfill a Dark-type role.
  • Low Kick pairs well with Close Combat to fulfill a Fighting-type role. 
  • Bullet Punch is more suitable for a Steel-type Pokemon. 
  • Rock Slide is a strong move, but lacks STAB and synergy with Pangoro. 
  • Iron Head is useless. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Bullet Punch is less likely to be resisted on defense and hurts Fairy-type attackers.
  • Snarl is also good on defense with its higher base power plus STAB.
  • Low Kick is weak on defense, and in general. 
  • Night Slash can be used frequently as a 3-bar move, but is likely to be resisted by attackers.
  • Iron Head can deal notable damage against Fairy-type attackers.
  • Rock Slide is good against Flying-type attackers but resisted by common Fighting-type attackers.
  • Close Combat is hard to dodge but slow to access as a 1-bar move. 

PVE Overview

Pangoro isn't the first Pokemon to be released into Pokemon Go with the Fighting/Dark typing, and unfortunately doesn't provide much to challenge existing meta Pokemon in either typings. It's also not recommended for defense due to its weakness to Fighting-type attackers that current meta defenders largely share, and its double weakness to Fairy-type attacks is easily abused.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Snarl + Night Slash and Close Combat

Snarl provides high energy gains, letting Pangoro spam its charge moves more frequently, however its STAB damage output is unimpressive. Bullet Punch has good stats, but lacks STAB and Steel-typing offensively isn't particularly valuable. Low Kick is a poor move. 

Night Slash is quite cheap for a charge move and can be spammed often to provide frequent shield pressure. Close Combat is recommended for its very high damage threat per energy cost, though its harsh self-debuff makes it more difficult to use. Rock Slide provides valuable coverage as a Rock-type move, but giving up Pangoro's main charge moves might be a tough sell. Iron Head isn't enough to flip matchups against Fairy-types in an even fight. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2.5 / 5

Pangoro shares similar roles with Scrafty and Obstagoon as a combination of Dark and Fighting (Counter in Obstagoon's case). Compared to them however, Pangoro's poor bulk and lack of strong fast move damage output holds it back somewhat. While not being able to learn Counter is discouraging, Pangoro can makeup for this shortfall by offering a different play style to provide Fighting-type coverage through its powerful Close Combat. This can make Pangoro a less consistent choice compared to other Pokemon due to its reliance on baiting shields, but Pangoro's faster access to Dark-type coverage makes it a stronger choice against Ghost and Psychic Pokemon. Unfortunately Cresselia can still one-shot Pangoro with Moonblast while being bulky enough to tank up to two Night Slashes, and Pangoro is still helpless against any Pokemon with Charm. 

Ultra League: 3.5 / 5 

Pangoro's coverage is quite useful for Ultra League, threatening Super Effective damage against a wide array of popular Pokemon. Fast access to its charge moves provides good shield pressure that lets Pangoro challenge various neutral matchups, though consistency might be a concern. Pangoro's fragile bulk is discouraging, and may cause it to lose matchups to Pokemon with strong fast move damage like Dragonite, Gyarados, or Talonflame for example. And obviously, keep this Pokemon away from Fairy Pokemon and other Fighting-types at all costs. 

Master League: 2 / 5

Pangoro's stats are somewhat lackluster for Master League, most notably its bulk stats. Metagross and Rhyperior are the primary targets for Pangoro, with Snorlax (Superpower) and Magnezone being risky and inconsistent matchups depending on shield baiting.
