Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Charge Beam is approximately equal to Volt Switch, with the primary difference being that Charge Beam has less cooldown and is easier to dodge with.

  • Zap Cannon’s damage output is superior. Thunder is quite underwhelming, with its only advantage being a low cooldown.

  • Focus Blast is designed for hurting Ampharos’s counters, which it should not be facing on offense.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Ampharos shines on defense thanks to Volt Switch’s huge damage; Charge Beam doesn’t hold a candle to it.

  • Focus Blast has the type coverage to maim Rhydon and Golem, but it is predictable and easily reactable.

  • Thunder hits fast and is hard to dodge, whereas Zap Cannon hits harder but is easy to dodge.

Rating Explanation:

Ampharos has the unique advantage of being one of very few pure Electric-types with decent stats currently in the game. It has only one weakness to the Ground-type, and Ampharos has access to Focus Blast, a move effective against all current relevant Ground-types.

Stat wise, Ampharos is solid all-around. It makes a formidable gym defender when paired with Volt Switch.
