PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Fury Cutter benefits from STAB and pairs with X-Scissor to fulfill a Bug-type attacker role.
  • Waterfall is a strong Water-type move, and while it synergizes with Aqua Jet, the latter is a poor move. 
  • Metal Claw should be TM'd away. 
  • Aerial Ace doesn't have any significant use. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Waterfall is the best Fast Move for defense due to its high base power and damage against Rock-type attackers.
  • Metal Claw has half the base power and lacks STAB, making it a major downgrade. 
  • Fury Cutter is very poor for defense. 
  • Aqua Jet is useful on defense against Rock-type attackers. 
  • X-Scissor is ok with STAB, and relatively difficult to dodge. 
  • Aerial Ace has a niche against players who don't like switching out their Fighting-type attackers. 

PVE Overview

Golisopod is an interesting Pokemon in Pokemon Go, with a decent ATK stat that sets it not too far behind Scizor in terms of offensive performance. Unfortunately Bug typing is not very valuable, making this Pokemon mostly a Dex entry at this point. Probably the most notable aspect about Golisopod in Pokemon Go is its incredible Candy requirement to evolve from Wimpod.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Fury Cutter + X-Scissor and Aerial Ace or Aqua Jet

Fury Cutter is generally recommended for its faster energy generation, letting Golisiopod access its Charge Moves sooner. Waterfall is another option if more Water-type damage is preferred, offering stronger STAB damage while sacrificing energy gains. Metal Claw has poor stats and its coverage is not very valuable. 

X-Scissor can be spammed frequently with its low energy cost, and benefits from STAB to deal respectable damage. Both Aerial Ace and Aqua Jet have poor stats, dealing unimpressive damage for moderate energy cost. Either option can be chosen depending on the preferred typing coverage. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1 / 5

Golisopod shares the same Bug/Water typing with Masquerain, and unfortunately the same fate due to its poor moveset. Bug typing is not highly valuable, and unlike Masquerain, Golisopod has no debuffing utility. It's not bulky either compared to Araquanid, which gives little reason to prefer Golisopod over other options. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Golisopod's performance in Ultra League is similar to its Great League results, which isn't much. Its resistances and access to Aerial Ace gives it a major advantage against Fighting-type Pokemon, but this is a very niche reason to pick Golisopod. 

Master League: 0 / 5

It is not recommended to send a bug to fight a dragon, but Golisopod's resistance to Garchomp's Ground-type moves, as well as various Ice-type Pokemon in this league could make it a meme pick.
