Movesets Grades

* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Bug Bite and Fury Cutter are preferred over Rock Smash, to be paired with X-Scissor for Bug-type offense.

  • Rock Smash can pair with Close Combat or, less preferably, Submission for suboptimal Fighting-type offense.

  • Vice Grip is not a good move. Use your TM here.

Defensive Moves Explanation

  • On defense, Rock Smash does over double the DPS of Pinsir’s other fast moves.

  • X-Scissor is fast and frequent, but ineffective against Pinsir’s counters.

  • Vice Grip is overall just a slightly worse version of X-Scissor.

  • Submission has better coverage than X-Scissor but is more reactable.

  • A 1-bar charge move like Close Combat is poor due to Pinsir’s low bulk.

Rating Explanation

Pinsir is Pokemon with potential. Bug-type moves have effectiveness against Grass, Psychic, and Dark-types. Pinsir can see use in Alakazam and Mewtwo raids, although it is not close to being optimal. Pinsir’s Fighting-type movesets can contest Tyranitar, Snorlax, and Blissey, but Machamp and many other Fighting-types do this job much better.

Defensively, Pinsir has bad stats and a poor typing. Fire, Flying, and Rock-type attackers are common, which prevent Pinsir from being threatening.
