Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Hydro Pump has the highest DPS of any Water charge move, making it the obvious pick. 
  • Aqua Tail is a very close runner up; it outputs big DPS and has a quick charge time, along with a tiny dodge window. 
  • Water Pulse is the loser, with it having the largest dodge window and a cooldown on par with Hydro Pump, for a bit over half the damage. TM this move. 
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Aqua Tail is a multi bar charge move with an early dodge window allowing it to constantly harass attackers and punish charge moves with long animation times (i.e Solar Beam).

  • While Hydro Pump is a single bar charge move, its high damage and extremely early dodge window will absolutely devastate inattentive attackers.

  • Water Pulse’s later dodge window makes it the least desirable of the 3 charge moves.

Rating Explanation:

Vaporeon has long been the central driver of both the attack and defense metagames. As time has passed and players have reached higher levels and had more time to catch better tier 1 Pokemon, Vaporeon’s centrality has waned slightly. Nonetheless, a gym defender who has trouble against a Vaporeon is not much of a defender at all, as there is no serious player who doesn’t have this beastly water-type (or 5…or 10) in his or her collection.

What makes Vaporeon so good is the incredibly high HP stat, combined with formidable attack and defense. In PoGO, the water-type is has even less to fear than in the main series Pokemon games, as all generation 1 electric-types are relatively toothless counters. Every Vaporeon moveset has its uses; no moveset should leave you disappointed. Vaporeon’s few counters (most notably the big grass types and Dragonite) are not incredibly common, though hardcore players are sure to have them high on their priority list.

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.
