PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Astonish is Runerigus' only option for a fast move... sadly.
  • Shadow Ball is the best offensive option hands down.
  • Rock Tomb and Sand Tomb match this ghost thematically, but they're basically worthless.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Astonish is the only option....
  • Rock Tomb and Sand Tomb both come out early. They are fairly comparable overall, but Rock Tomb pulls ahead a bit in general.
  • Shadow Ball is usable, but it is easier to dodge

PVE Overview

Such an amazing design, such wasted potential. Runerigus was never going to make waves in the PvE meta; its attack stat is just too low. However, now we can't even say that it's a PvP Pokemon due to just how remarkably bad Astonish is. Rest in peace, you rune-possessing ghost.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Astonish + Shadow Ball and Sand Tomb

Astonish is one of the worst fast moves in the game, with poor damage output even with STAB, and an average 3.0 EPT (Energy Per Turn). Unfortunately, it's the only fast move available.

Shadow Ball takes advantage of STAB to threaten major damage that's largely unresisted. Sand Tomb is recommended for its lesser energy cost and DEF debuff on the opponent, making it useful for baiting shields. However its damage output is pathetic if unshielded. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1 / 5

Runerigus is cursed with a very poor moveset that's largely blamed on its lack of a decent fast move. This problem is so severe that it causes Runerigus to almost be unviable against the meta despite having respectable stats and good bulk. Ground/Ghost typing also doesn't synergize very well, with vulnerabilities to common typings also being a major concern. While Runerigus isn't completely useless, it's role is very much a niche at best, with many other Pokemon performing better in the meta. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Runerigus would appreciate more stats for Ultra League, with a max CP of only 2273. Much like in Great League, its role in Ultra League is niche at best, with very specific Pokemon in the meta that it can claim wins over. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Runerigus has both Sand Tomb and Rock Tomb, one for when it first faints, and the other for when its trainer rage quits.
