PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Fire Spin performs the best in PvE offense, and is superior to other options.
  • Incinerate is a direct downgrade in PvE.
  • Ember is an even further downgrade.
  • Low Kick lacks STAB and has no use. 
  • Fire Blast is the best charge move available for offense. 
  • Heat Wave is a downgrade and performs less optimally. 
  • Flame Charge has poor damage output despite being a 3-bar move.
  • Drill Run is actually quite good in PvE, but lacks STAB with Rapidash. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Incinerate is the best fast move on defense due to its tremendous base power.
  • Fire Spin is the next best available, but the difference is significant. 
  • Ember has less damage output, and shouldn't be used.
  • Low Kick may offer a different type coverage, but lacks STAB and has the worst damage output. 
  • Drill Run is arguably the best for defense thanks to its coverage, respectable damage, and being a 2-bar move.
  • Flame Charge can be access more frequently as a 3-bar move, but is quite easy to dodge.
  • Fire Blast hits hard, but Rapidash may feint before being able to use it. 
  • Heat Wave is slow to access and easy to dodge, making it the worst option on defense. 

PVE Overview

Rapidash looks cool, but its performance sure isn’t. Though it has access to Fire Spin, it doesn’t learn Overheat, making it totally meta-irrelevant. It’s just another Fire-type in a crowd of better Fire-types.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Incinerate + Drill Run and Flame Charge

Incinerate features superior damage output and energy generation on paper, but in practice its long animation can make it difficult to use. Fire Spin falls behind in energy gains; Ember is an even further downgrade. Low Kick sports the worst performance in both damage output and energy gains, and also lacks STAB. 

Drill Run is recommended for its wide coverage, efficient 1.78 DPE (Damage Per Energy), and costs the least amount of energy among Rapidash's charge moves. Flame Charge demands less energy than other charge move options, and while it's not as powerful, it still provides a guaranteed +1 ATK self buff. Fire Blast and Heat Wave both cost too much energy to be worthwhile. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

Rapidash sports a mono-Fire typing with high ATK stats and consequently poor bulk. Access to Drill Run lets it stand out from other Fire-type Pokemon, providing valuable coverage, though somewhat redundant against Steel Pokemon. Incinerate is a double-edged sword, improving energy generation stat-wise on paper, but the delay of lasting 5 turns (the longest of any fast move at the time of its introduction) can result in inconsistencies when charge moves or Pokemon switches occur. Losses against Pokemon with high damage output (such as Dragon Breath users) are largely due to Rapidash's fragility, while ubiquitous Water Pokemon will always be an issue. 

Ultra League: 2.5 / 5

Rapidash has a max CP of 2461, which just barely reaches the CP cap of Ultra League. Unfortunately the lack of bulk stats remain the primary reason for various losses, and while Fire-typing is favorable against Grass, Bug, Steel, and Fairy Pokemon (many of which are common in this League), it does have its shortfalls against common Water-types and Pokemon with superior stats and/or faster movesets. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Rapidash lacks stats for Master League.
