Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Waterfall is better than all other fast moves due to its wide coverage and STAB.
  • Bite, Dragon Tail, and Dragon Breath have advantages in super effective matchups, especially when paired with same-typed charge moves to maximize weather bonuses.
  • Hydro Pump is the charge move of choice, often equaling the other charge moves in power, even when they have super effective matchups or weather bonus.
  • Crunch has an advantage against Psychic and Dark-type opponents, offering the advantage of being a multi-bar charge move and the same typing as Bite.
  • Outrage offers a niche advantage over Dragon-type Pokemon, should you fight one.
  • Dragon Pulse and Twister are inferior to Outrage.

Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Waterfall is slightly better than Dragon Tail on defense, the former offering better damage against Electric-type counters and the latter against Dragon-type counters.
  • Hydro Pump is generally favored on defense, offering massive damage with an early dodge window.
  • Crunch requires little energy and is strong, threatening attackers in matchups where Gyarados loses quickly.
  • All other charge moves offer niche situational advantages on defense.

Rating Explanation

The very embodiment of patience and its payoff, behold the fruit of 400 Magikarp candies. Gyarados's stats are among the best in the game, boasting enormous Atk and decent bulk to boot. Gyarados itself has also been patient, as 17 months after GO’s release, it finally got what it needed: a Water-type fast move.

Gyarados finally emerged from the shadow of Vaporeon after 2 long generations with the introduction of the fast move Waterfall. This catapulted Gyarados to the top of the Water-type DPS charts. As the third strongest fast move in the game, Waterfall also helps Gyarados hit harder on defense before it gets smoked by an Electric-type.
