Rating Explanation:

Omastar’s unique typing combined with having the rare Rock-type quick move Rock Throw makes Omastar one of the best and most specialized counters to Ice, Flying, and Fire-type Pokemon in the game. Unfortunately, both Rock Throw and Rock Slide, the two attacks that made Omastar so good in its role as an attacker, are legacy moves. Stripped of these attacks, Omastar’s current role is now more limited to a Fire-type counter and prestiger and is almost entirely inadvisable as a defender. Lord Helix is dead, Niantic has killed him.

Attacking Movesets
Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Rock Throw is Omastar’s greatest quick move and is unfortunately a legacy move. It’s type coverage in concert with Omastar’s defensive typing allows Omastar to perform more optimally in specific scenarios (such as vs Lapras) and it is missed.

  • Water Gun is clearly superior to Mud Shot in every way, being slightly faster, having STAB, and similar type coverage. However, if being used as a prestiger, the difference between the two attacks are nebulous.

  • Rock Slide is Omastar’s greatest charge move and is, once again, a legacy move. As with Rock Throw, it’s unique type coverage in concert with Omastar’s defensive typing allows it to performance more optimally in specific scenario (such as vs Lapras) and it is missed.

  • Hydro Pump is slightly better than Rock Blast. Rock Blast has the advantages of being a multi bar charge move and has similar circumstantial benefits as Rock Slide. That said, Hydro Pump’s superior DPS closes the gap between the two, even in situations where it’s not very effective and Rock Blast is super effective.

  • Ancient Power is significantly inferior to the aforementioned charge moves in every way.

Defending Movesets
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Rock Throw is Omastar’s greatest quick move and is unfortunately a legacy move. It’s type coverage and power make it superior to Omastar’s other options in every way.

  • Water Gun is superior to Mud Shot, having similar type coverage and STAB. That said, both are relatively poor quick moves for defense to the point where the difference in performance is nebulous compared to Omastar’s charge move.

  • Rock Blast is on par with legacy move Rock Slide, both are slightly superior to Ancient Power. All 3 are multi bar, rock-type charge moves with relatively similar animation times.

  • Hydro Pump is on par with the aforementioned charge moves. Despite having the disadvantage of being a single bar charge move on defense, Hydro Pump’s fast animation and early damage window can make it a devastating move on defense.
