Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Blizzard is on par with Ice Beam. Ice Beam has the advantage of being a 2-bar move, but its long animation time keeps it even with Blizzard.

  • Icy Wind's low damage and long animation time (even longer than Blizzard) prevent it from being useful.
  • Hurricane offers no synergy with Ice-type moves but has stronger DPS than Icy Wind.

Rating Explanation

As the much-hyped first legendary bird species to be released in Pokemon GO, Articuno is a bit disappointing. Its base stats are defensively oriented in an offense-focused metagame, and Ice-type offense is a fairly low demand with the current catalogue of raid bosses. However, this may change later as we start seeing Gen 4 raid bosses.

That said, Articuno sits atop the Ice-type throne, possessing the second highest Atk stat among Ice-types (behind Jynx) and impressive bulk rivaling that of Lapras.
