Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Confusion is slightly better than Zen Headbutt, offering superior DPS and almost twice the power against a 50% cooldown difference. However, the latter's maneuverability may attract dodge-inclined players.
  • Future Sight clearly superior to Psychic, wielding higher power despite sharing identical cooldowns and dodge windows.
  • Psybeam is underwhelming; despite being a two-charge move it has a longer cooldown than its one-charge competitors and deals far less DPS 
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Confusion is slightly better than Zen Headbutt power-wise.
  • Psybeam's is generally superior to Psychic and Future Sight, since its two-charges are less exploitable. Espeon also has lower defense and stamina stats, so Psybeam may end up putting in more damage against unfavorable matchups.
  • Future Sight outclasses Psychic in every way, as stated above.

Rating Explanation:

Without considering anything else, the fifth highest attack stat in the game is enough to turn heads. Espeon's success is three-fold:

  • Accessibility of Eevee
  • Relative absence of Bug, Dark and Ghost counters
  • One of the only hard counters to Machamp, a raid in high demand

Fairly straightforward, an arsenal of powerful Psychic moves proves to be a valuable asset, resisted only by Steels, Darks, and other Psychics. In the absence of strong/accessible Flying types, Espeon stands with Alakazam as the premier Machamp attackers, while also contributing to Poison raids such as Muk or Venusaur. 

Sky-high attack power, decent bulk, and strong typing places Espeon quite comfortably in the current meta.
