Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Confusion is generally superior to Water Gun; both are usable on offense but the former wields higher DPS and more meta relevance.

  • Psychic is the preferred charge move, offering superior DPS, coverage, and STAB.

  • Blizzard and Fire Blast are often inferior; there are better choices for Ice and Fire-type attackers.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Confusion is distinctly superior to Water Gun due to the massive power difference.

  • Blizzard is on par with Psychic; both share similar dodge windows and power but have their respective defensive matchups.

  • Fire Blast is clearly inferior; its late dodge window makes it non viable, compounded by the fact that many Grass-type counters are also weak to Psychic.

Rating Explanation:

When comparing Slowking to his counterpart, Slowbro, there are only two differentiating factors: height and moveset. Their stats, typing, and quick moves are all identical, and both have access to Psychic. In this case, the separating factor is Slowking’s ability to use Blizzard and Fire Blast. Since the Slowdudes are both fairly tanky, Slowking has an ever so slight edge when attacking, using 1 bar moves to their highest potential.

That being said, the defensive edge has to be ceded to Slowbro, as all three of Slowking’s charge moves are exploitable 1 bars. The lack of a Water-type charge move also hurts Slowking’s overall flexibility and removes the possibility of being a Vaporeon alternative. If you were considering a bulkier Psychic-type attacker for Machamp raids, Slowking will contribute, but you’re probably better off investing in other Psychic-types.
