Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Bubble is superior to Mud Shot for Politoed’s niche as a Fire, Rock, and Ground-type slayer.

  • Hydro Pump is the best of Politoed’s all 3 1-bar charge moves, sharing the same type as Bubble and having STAB.

  • Blizzard has similar damage output as Hydro Pump and performs against meta relevant types, but has no synergy with it’s quick moves.

  • Earthquake has good coverage but the lowest damage of Politoed’s charge moves.

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Although Mud Shot is effective against Electric-type attackers, Bubble is better for its stronger defensive DPS.

  • Blizzard has coverage against Grass-type attackers and Dragonite, common attackers into Water-type defenders.

  • Hydro Pump is the least reactable of Politoed’s charge moves and benefits from STAB.

  • Earthquake can surprise Electric-type attackers, but it’s poor vs. Grass-types and is very reactable.

Rating Explanation:

Politoed shares the same strengths that other pure Water-types have; meta-relevant coverage. Unfortunately, Politoed doesn’t have impressive stats, and its job is typically done better by more easily available Pokemon. A Vaporeon will be preferred in every scenario where Politoed could be considered. It’s hard to recommend using a King’s Rock on Poliwhirl when Poliwrath costs the same amount of candy and has superior type coverage.
