PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Confusion is generally superior to Water Gun; both are usable on offense but the former wields higher DPS and more meta relevance.
  • Psychic is the clear winner for attacking. It pairs well with Confusion.
  • Ice Beam and Water Pulse aren’t very useful for an offensive Slowbro.  

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Confusion is distinctly superior to Water Gun due to the massive power difference.
  • Ice Beam and Psychic have similar performance overall, though Ice Beam is preferred due to counter-coverage and being off-type with Confusion.
  • Water Pulse’s late dodge window holds it back, but its 2 bars and effectiveness on Tyranitar keep it viable.

PVE Overview

Slowbro is a likely overlooked Pokemon in your collection, but don't count it out. It has access to one of the best defensive fast moves in the game, Confusion, as well as good charge moves for defense. These are complemented by respectable bulk.

Throwing this 'mon into a gym will get you some staying power. Its resistances to Fighting and Fire will make the attacker think twice about spamming Machamp or Entei, and the threat of Ice Beam or Water Pulse can annoy Dragonite and Tyranitar, respectively.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Confusion + Ice Beam and Water Pulse or Psychic

This is the more preferable moveset, as Confusion deals more damage than Water Gun. Ice Beam is the most useful charge move due to its wide coverage, low energy cost compared to other options, and a good 1.6 DPE (Damage Per Energy). Water Pulse and Psychic are both lackluster options that don't deal as much damage for their greater energy cost. While both get STAB, Water Pulse costs less energy, but Psychic gives more value per energy with a higher 1.42 DPE. 

Water Gun + Ice Beam and Water Pulse or Psychic

Water Gun can be chosen if Slowbro needs to fulfill a Water-type role and results in wins against specific opponents. Ice Beam is still preferred due to its coverage, performance, and lower energy cost, while the second option is up to preference. Water Pulse can be used for very specific fights strictly emphasizing Water-typing, while Psychic can offer coverage. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1.5 / 5

Slowbro is known in PvE as a bulky Pokemon with slower DPS, and this isn't much different in PvP. With a defensive stat distribution, Slowbro is relatively bulky compared to its competition which works in its favor. A slower offensive DPS in PvE is also reflected in PvP as Slowbro suffers from a lackluster moveset. The lack of a low energy charge move combined with unspectacular energy gains from either of its fast moves causes Slowbro to be somewhat slower with shield pressure, and the poor DPE ratings of Psychic and Water Pulse holds back Slowbro from anywhere near the top ranks. Overall a disappointing candidate, though it can still find niche uses in closed scenarios like the Silph Arena's Rainbow Cup. 

Ultra League: 2 / 5

Slowbro isn't particularly exciting for Ultra League, though its bulk does give some wins against more favorable matchups. The greater abundance of Dragon-type competitors in Ultra League allows Slowbro to have more targets to shoot at with Ice Beam, though that still isn't enough to beat the king of Ultra League: Giratina. With a max CP of 2545, Slowbro almost needs to be maxed out to level 40 to reach its full potential, which is expensive and unappealing considering its poor performance. Consider other Pokemon for this league instead.

Master League: 0 / 5

Slowbro is too slow for Master League.
