Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Mud Slap is generally the superior fast move due to STAB.

  • However, Rock Smash is better in specific match ups against targets weak to Fighting-type moves, such as Snorlax and Blissey.

  • Earthquake and Stone Edge are great charge options for offense. Earthquake is better against Electric-types while Stone Edge is superior against targets weak to both moves.

  • On offense, Megahorn is underwhelming in every aspect.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Mud Slap is clearly superior to Rock Smash due to gaining STAB. However, with base 15 power, Rock Smash isn’t much worse.

  • Stone Edge is Rhydon’s best charge move on defense. It has a early damage window that is difficult to react to and pairs well with Mud Slap.

  • Megahorn is arguably superior to Earthquake. While it doesn’t have STAB, it has an earlier damage window and it can nail specific attackers such as Exeggutor.

Rating Explanation:

Rhydon is a perfect example of how having a high base stat total and high base power quick moves can overcome poor defensive typing and even lack of STAB. Rhydon's Ground / Rock typing leaves it doubly vulnerable to Water and Grass-type attacks on top of weaknesses to Fighting and Ice types attacks. While for other Pokemon (namely Golem) this would be a recipe for disaster, Rhydon’s BST evens the odds.

On offense, Rhydon is hamstringed by its fast move options. While its double Ground-type moveset is optimal vs. Electric-types, neither Mud-Slap nor Earthquake are the best moves in terms of DPS, so even a full squad of Rhydon has trouble soloing a Jolteon raid boss. Rhydon lacks access to a Rock-type quick move, rendering it quite slow against Flying-types compared to its competitor, Golem.

Raid Boss Counters
SupremeOverall best counter always. Almost always top in DPS and very high in survivability. The Pokemon you want for the job.
GoodThe next best if you don’t have Supreme Pokemon.
TankWhen you’re down to your 5-6th Pokemon and need to hold the line and not suck while doing it. Tanks always have more survivability than Supreme, but less DPS than Good.
GlassMore DPS than Good with significantly less survivability. Note: Less DPS than Supreme.
