PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Bug Bite performs slightly better than Infestation for PvE offense, but the difference is not huge. 
  • Bug Buzz pairs with Araquanid's Bug-type Fast Moves, and is a good move overall. 
  • Despite benefiting from STAB, Bubble Beam is a poor move. 
  • Mirror Coat is useless. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Infestation should be chosen for defense due to it having double the base power of Bug Bite
  • Bubble Beam lacks power but can be spammed frequently on defense. 
  • Bug Buzz hits hard, is easier to dodge, and is more likely to be resisted by Flying-type attackers.
  • Mirror Coat doesn't provide any value unless the attackers don't like switching out common Fighting-type attackers. 

PVE Overview

Araquanid boasts respectable DEF stats and an okay STA stat, making it useful for gym defense. Its max CP isn't very high, resulting in slower CP degradation and lasting longer in gyms with infrequent activity. Its resistances to common Fighting-type attackers like Machamp is appreciated, and Araquanid performs best when slotted between top rated gym defenders that are weak to Fighting like Blissey or Snorlax.

What's that? You're asking about offense? HAVE YOU SEEN ITS PATHETIC ATK STAT?!?!

PvP Moveset Explanation

Bug Bite + Bug Buzz and Bubble Beam

Both Bug Bite and Infestation are fairly average fast move choices, with Bug Bite being more damage-focused while Infestation is more energy-focused. Bug Bite is preferred over Infestation because Araquanid's charge moves aren't spectacular enough to make good use of Infestation's superior energy gain.

Bug Buzz is Araquanid's most devastating charge move, but it is rather costly. Bubble Beam is a low-cost shield baiting move that can greatly extend Araquanid's already impressive longevity through repeated Attack debuffs. Mirror Coat is unremarkable, but can surprise Poison-type opponents.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 4.5 / 5

The long awaited Walrein counter is here! Boasting a fairly unique resistance to both Ice AND Ground, Araquanid takes on the walrus without breaking a sweat. But Araquanid is more than just a Walrein counter - it is also extremely tanky and has useful resistances to Water and Fighting. Araquanid can take on numerous top threats such as Deoxys Defense, Swampert, Scrafty, and Umbreon, and can even go toe to toe against Azumarill and Galarian Stunfisk. Despite its strengths, however, it must be mindful of the polarizing issues of the Bug-type. Various Flying- and Steel-types can easily shut Araquanid down due to its rather one-dimensional moveset.

Ultra League: 1 / 5

A max CP of 2065 doesn't do Araquanid much favors in the Ultra League. It can't even reliably counter Walrein anymore.

Master League: 0 / 5

At this point there's not enough Walrein to hunt down anymore. And if Araquanid does come across one, it will be the one getting destroyed instead due to the stat differences. Everything else in the Master League has approximately double or more of Araquanid's max CP.
