Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Frost Breath is preferred over Confusion due to the novelty of STAB Ice-type moves.

  • Pound is underwhelming in every aspect and is also a legacy move.

  • Avalanche is generally superior to Ice Punch damage-wise; the latter offers slightly more maneuverability but is also a legacy move.   

  • Psyshock is advised against since Jynx is outclassed from a Psychic-type attacker perspective.

  • Draining Kiss is clearly inferior, only offering Dark-type coverage.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Confusion is superior to Frost Breath because of its defensive DPS and ability to hit Fire-type counters for neutral damage.

  • Pound is clearly inferior, barely tickling attackers.

  • Draining Kiss is generally superior due to its early damage window and effectiveness against Dark-types brought in to counter Jynx.

  • Psyshock is favored over Avalanche; both share similar damage windows, but the former has more charges and wider neutral coverage.

  • Ice Punch is a suitable alternative, sporting an early damage window and 3 bars.
Rating Explanation:

From a Psychic-type attacker perspective, Jynx leaves more to be desired. The likes of Alakazam and Espeon aren’t burdened by the defensive liabilities of Ice-typing while also boasting sky-high Atk and access to Future Sight.

When considering the classic Ice-types, Jynx stands above Cloyster and Lapras in terms of offensive capabilities. The latter two are more geared towards survivability, whereas Jynx’s high Atk stat makes it the highest DPS Ice-type attacker currently in the game.
