PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Vine Whip is on par with Razor Leaf on attack; though they’re very different moves, they end up close in cycle DPS.

  • Frenzy Plant is one of the best Grass-type moves in the game, and Meganium's best choice.

  • Solar Beam is frequently superior to Petal Blizzard due to its massive base power.

  • Earthquake has little use on an offensive Meganium.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Razor Leaf is far superior to Vine Whip, netting higher damage and energy gain.

  • While all of Meganium’s charge moves are poor on defense, Petal Blizzard at least has an early damage window.

PVE Overview

Out of the many Grass-type Pokemon in GO, Meganium is of the worst. Its lower-than-Ponyta’s Atk stat paired with the cookie-cutter Grass-type movepool keeps it from standing out on both offense and defense. While Bunchie had a good run as a meme back in 2003, in Pokemon GO it’s not doing so hot.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Vine Whip + Frenzy Plant and Earthquake

Because Frenzy Plant is the main selling feature of Meganium, the more optimal choice in many cases is to go with Vine Whip since it generates energy twice as fast as Razor Leaf. While Razor Leaf's insane 5.5 DPT (Damage Per Turn) is more than double that of Wine Whip's 2.0 DPT (Damage Per Turn), Frenzy Plant's incredible 2.2 DPE (Damage Per Energy) is worth the loss of damage on Meganium's fast move to ensure that more Frenzy Plants can be used and abused. 

Earthquake gives Meganium coverage against potential threats from Fire and Poison types. Interestingly enough, it also allows Meganium to threaten Electric type Pokemon by constantly keeping them guessing whether to shield or potentially get KO'd. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 4.5 / 5

Meganium positions itself in Great League as a bulky Grass type that takes full advantage of its access to Frenzy Plant. While being a pure Grass type has its pros and cons, Meganium overall is an excellent pick and can hold its own in many fights. Access to Earthquake keeps Fire and Poison counterpicks cautious, and also allows Meganium to wall most Electric types depending on shield usage. 

Ultra League: 4.5 / 5

Meganium's stat distribution suits it well for Ultra League, though capping at 2410 CP means that it'll very likely need to powered up to level 40 to be serviceable. Just like in Great League, Meganium excels in its Grass type role and can even win against a Lapras with Ice Shard. It's no match for Giratina though. 

Master League: 3 / 5

Meganium's maximum CP of 2410 handicaps it from achieving top ranks in Master League, though Frenzy Plant still allows it to threaten Pokemon weak to Grass like Groudon and Kyogre. Giratina still top dawg.
