Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Fury Cutter, though legacy, is Kabutops's best quick move due its superior energy gain.

  • Mud Shot is arguably better than Rock Smash. Mud Shot is easier to dodge with and better complements Stone Edge’s coverage. Rock Smash is more serviceable in situations where Ground is resisted and/or Fighting is effective.

  • Stone Edge is clearly superior to Water Pulse and Ancient Power, even in situations where Rock is resisted or Water is effective. They have underwhelming damage output, especially compared to fast and explosive power of Stone Edge.

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Rock Smash is the only fast move worth considering, as Mud Shot and Fury Cutter have horrid defensive DPS.

  • Ancient Power and Water Pulse afford Kabutops a chance to use a charge move, despite both being easily dodged. Though harder to dodge, Stone Edge take too long to charge for a Pokemon this frail.

Rating Explanation:

Kabutops, unfortunately, got the short end of the stick in Pokemon GO compared to its marine fossil brother, Omastar. Kabutops has slightly lower overall stats and, more importantly, no access to STAB fast moves, which severely hampers its performance. For example, all of Kabutops's fast moves are resisted by Flying-types, which should intuitively have a disadvantageous match up against this prehistoric predator.

Kabutops currently has no place in the metagame as a Rock or Water-type attacker, nor is it viable on defense with poor bulk and a double weakness to Grass.
