PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Thunder Shock is the better fast move, with a lower cooldown, faster energy gain, and similar DPS to Volt Switch.

  • Thunderbolt has slightly better damage output than Discharge. Jolteon will also spend less time in cooldown with Thunderbolt.

  • Thunder is too weak for requiring a full bar of energy.
  • Last Resort has little to no offensive viability.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Volt Switch's raw power and energy gain are ideal for defense.

  • Discharge and Thunderbolt are once again comparable options. Discharge is more likely to be used before Jolteon bites the dust.

  • Last Resort hits Ground-type counters much harder, but it's also really easy to dodge. 

  • Thunder is the hardest of Jolteon's charge moves to dodge, but its damage output for a full bar of energy is pretty bad.

PVE Overview

Jolteon is currently the most meta-relevant non-legendary Electric-type Pokemon. It has long been the Gyarados slayer, but it’s been pushed out of this niche by the strictly superior Raikou and Zapdos. Jolteon’s remaining advantage is its easy accessibility.

On defense, Jolteon has access to one of the best defensive fast moves - Volt Switch. However, it is held back by its low HP. Given that and with no way to threaten Ground-type attackers, Jolteon is easily hard countered and rarely seen seriously trying to hold a gym.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Thunder Shock + Discharge and Thunder

While Thunder Shock doesn't have as much raw damage output as Volt Switch, the significantly higher energy gains easily make up for this. 

Of all the options Jolteon has for its charge moves, Discharge stands out as the cheapest option in terms of energy, which also makes it the best option to bait shields. Thunder costs only 5 more energy than Thunderbolt, but deals more Damage Per Energy (DPE) which makes it the more valuable pick. Last Resort could be an option to deal neutral damage should Electric-type damage be resisted, but the lack of power and STAB causes Jolteon to lose way more matchups against most of the meta. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2.5 / 5

Jolteon is an offensive powerhouse in PvP, with an emphasis on frequent and powerful STAB charge moves thanks to the best energy generation in the game. A shield bait with Discharge and a direct hit from Thunder is often enough to severely wound if not KO most opponents who don't resist Electric-type attacks. Unfortunately Jolteon's offensive power ultimately is held back by its unsurprisingly low durability, which makes tankier competitors like Melmetal and Lanturn more appealing to use. Overall an interesting pick that can definitely catch opponents off guard if they're unprepared. 

Ultra League: 2.5 / 5

Ultra League is notable for the significantly greater presence of Dragon-types which resist Electric-type damage, and thus Jolteon has somewhat of a harder time trying to find its role in this league. Wins against Umbreon, Poliwrath, and Lapras are definitely appreciated, but losses against most of the meta makes it difficult to choose Jolteon as Giratina's bodyguard. 

Master League: 1.5 / 5

With a max CP of 2888, Jolteon lacks the stats to compete against the numerous legendaries in Master League.
