PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Poison Jab is on par with Acid, the former having higher power, the latter higher energy gain.

  • Lick is slightly behind them. What it lacks in damage it makes up for in energy gain.

  • Gunk Shot is clearly superior to Sludge Wave, having higher base damage for the same energy cost.

  • Infestation and Dark Pulse are more suited towards gym defense.
  • Acid Spray is a terrible move in raids.
  • Thunder Punch does not synergize well with any of Muk's fast moves, leaving it useless on an attacking Muk.
  • Return is pointless on Muk.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Infestation is slightly superior to Poison Jab and Acid, offering counter coverage and better energy gain.

  • Dark Pulse is Muk a fantastic charge move on Muk, with multiple bars and phenomenal counter coverage.

  • Thunder Punch is another fantastic charge move on Muk due to having three bars, a reasonably early damage window, good neutral coverage, and good power.

  • Gunk Shot is strong, and it literally throws a garbage can, which is neat.

  • Acid Spray is a 3-bar STAB charge move, but its low damage means that it's actually out-damaged by Thunder Punch despite the later not having STAB.

  • Both Lick and Sludge Wave are relatively ineffective on defense.
  • Return is hard to dodge, but it's just not as good as Thunder Punch for coverage or power.

PVE Overview

Smell that? That’s the scent of great gym defender decaying with each legendary released. For the longest time, the best answer to Muk was Dragonite. Frail Psychic-types couldn’t handle the combination of Infestation and Dark Pulse, and Ground-types were so slow that neutral attackers would get the job done faster. The release of Lugia, an extremely bulky Psychic-type, posed the first real threat to Muk’s viability. With Mewtwo and Groudon out, Muk has become yesterday's news.

While Muk is no longer an upper tier gym defender, it is still a very good gym defender. Its Poison-typing walls any Machamp trying to plow through.
