Rating Explanation:

Omastar is an interesting case. Once thought to be the pinnacle of mediocrity in PoGO, more research painted a progressively rosier picture for Omastar. Rock Slide is one of the most efficient defensive charge moves in the game, striking the perfect balance of low energy cost, long duration, and high damage that synergies perfectly with the gym defense AI. His rock/water typing turns out to be quite potent against every common attacker outside of grass-types; his double weakness to grass is his most significant downside.

Rock Throw, a legacy move no longer obtainable on Omastar, is his very best defensive quick move, and it leaves him in the highly unique situation of having a favorable matchup vs Dragonite and Lapras while also resisting the normal-type attacks of Snorlax. Having strong matchups vs PoGO's "big 3" is such a rare and highly desirable trait that it catapults Omastar to high-tier relevancy even considering the double grass weakness.

Omastar can and should be used on both attack and defense. On attack, he can be used just like scores of other strong water types as a Water Gun + Hydro Pump spammer. However, a double rock-type moveset can be used to take advantage of the strength of rock as an attacking type as well, though the fact that trainers can no longer obtain Rock Throw variants is unfortunate. On defense, Omastar is a stud anywhere that grass-types are uncommon, especially with Rock Throw. Players may think that Omastar's relative unpopularity means he can be run over by traditional top-tier attackers, but that would be a huge mistake. His unpopularity is due to underestimation and rarity, not underperformance.
