Movesets Grades

* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Charge Beam is slightly superior to Volt Switch, offering slightly less DPS for more energy gains and better dodgability.
  • Zap Cannon is the charge move of choice, doing far more damage for the same amount of energy as Thunder.
  • Focus Blast and Dragon Pulse have little to no use on an offensive Ampharos.

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.
  • Dragon Pulse is the best defensive charge move.  It's the most likely to hit and has decent versatility against a wider range of attackers.

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 most current relevant Ground-types.

Stat wise, Ampharos is solid all-around. It makes a decent gym defender when packing Volt Switch. As an attacker, though, its stats and movesets leave much to be desired.
