Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Sky Attack is one of the best charge moves and has STAB on Moltres. 
  • Overheat is Moltres’s second best charge move. It has a higher base power and shorter cooldown than Fire Blast.
  • Heat Wave isn’t worth mentioning.

Rating Explanation

Moltres claims the role of the premier Fire-type attacker in Pokemon GO while also placing high on the neutral offensive DPS ranks. It has a very high Atk stat paired with excellent fast and charge move options. Moltres thrives in locales where sunny/clear whether predominates, reliably getting a 20% DPS boost.

Moltres remains at the top of the chart as a Fire attacker, competing only with Entei, who trades a little DPS for more bulk. Moltres’s double resistance to Grass and Bug-type attacks makes it even bulkier than Entei in these matchups. On the other hand, when facing Ice-type enemies with Ice attacks, Moltres’s Flying typing becomes a liability.

Moltres' exclusive move, Sky Attack, makes it a top contender for neutral DPS and DPS against Grass and Bug-type, as explained in our article

Sadly, Fire-types currently have limited raid utility, but Moltres may find itself an optimal counter in many Grass or Bug-type raid battles.
