Movesets Grades

* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Steel Wing is slightly better than Bite; which one is better comes down to the target’s weaknesses and resistances.

  • Ancient Power is overall Aerodactyl’s best (and only STAB) charge move.

  • Steel Wing can be paired with Iron Head for meh Steel-type DPS.

  • Hyper Beam is a weak pick, lacking any relevant coverage.

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Steel Wing is superior to Bite, having significantly higher base damage.

  • Ancient Power is Aerodactyl’s best defensive charge move, but it is easily dodged.

  • Iron Head does damage earlier, and Aerodactyl may still live long enough to use it.

  • Hyper Beam is simply awful.

Rating Explanation

Aerodactyl's movepool in the main series Pokemon games has no shortage of STAB Flying and Rock-type moves. So why does it only get one STAB move in Pokemon GO? Aerodactyl has decent stats and a very cool type combination, but a garbage movepool relegates it to total unviability on offense and defense.
