PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Charm is the only fast move that gets STAB, and is superior to the rest. 
  • Bite and Snarl are close, but Snarl more often comes out on top.
  • Play Rough is ideal on Granbull due to STAB and type coverage vs. Dragon, Fighting, and Dark-types.
  • Crunch can work, but there are better Dark-type attackers to choose from.
  • Close Combat lacks utility without STAB or type synergy with fast moves.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Charm benefits from STAB and deals huge damage on defense. 
  • Snarl is superior to Bite for raw damage and energy gain.
  • Play Rough is the obvious best charge move, with high power, early damage window, and good neutral coverage.
  • Crunch can see use on defense due to low energy cost, but lacks type coverage.
  • Close Combat can cover Steel-types, but Granbull’s bulk is poor for 1-bar moves.

PVE Overview

Granbull is a pure Fairy-type Pokemon with a decent ATK stat. It’s outclassed by Gardevoir on offense and isn’t worth considering seriously on defense.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Charm + Crunch and Close Combat

The moveset rebalance on July 9, 2019 gave Granbull a much needed buff with the addition of Charm. Taking advantage of STAB, this allows Granbull to deal very solid Fairy-type damage without relying on its charge moves. 

Crunch costs the least amount of energy among Granbull's charge moves and also provides some coverage. Since Granbull can now deal Fairy-type damage with its fast move, Close Combat is preferred as the secondary charge move option to provide coverage against Steel-types, though the relatively steep energy cost means it's not as likely to be used. 

Snarl or Bite + Crunch and Play Rough

Granbull has the option to go for a full Dark-type moveset should there be a niche where this would be preferable. Snarl generates much more energy and enables more frequent use of Granbull's charge moves. Bite leans towards greater damage output, in which case don't expect to use any charge moves other than Crunch unless you can farm energy in an advantageous matchup. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

As a mono-Fairy Pokemon, Granbull is one of the lucky candidates to obtain Charm to its moveset thanks to the moveset rebalance in July 2019. Unlike other Fairy-types, Granbull distinguishes itself with access to a Dark-type moveset, which gives it interesting niches such as against Deoxys Defense Forme. Unfortunately the relatively high ATK stat of Granbull provides it relatively poor bulk compared to other picks, and the low energy generation from Charm means it won't be able to utilize its charge moves much. The Dark-type fast moves typically perform worse on Granbull, and other than very niche scenarios, should be avoided. Overall an interesting consideration for Great League, but generally speaking some other Fairy-types perform better. 

Ultra League: 3.5 / 5

The addition of Charm really boosts Granbull's overall performance in Ultra League, due to its incredible damage output against the meta-defining Giratina. Many Pokemon that act as Giratina's bodyguards also now become easy prey for Granbull, which includes Dialga, Umbreon, Lucario, and Poliwrath. Overall a decent option thanks to Charm, though Granbull doesn't perform as well as other bulkier Fairy-types which hurts its overall rating. 

Master League: 1 / 5

With a max CP of 2552, Granbull falls short of the stats needed to perform well in Master League.
