X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Bite is best paired with Crunch, while Smack Down should be paired with Stone Edge.

  • Iron Tail is okay against Pokemon weak to Steel but not Rock, but its use cases are narrow.

  • Fire Blast is underwhelming in every aspect.

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Iron Tail edges out Smack Down due to not being resisted by Fighting.

  • Bite barely tickles attackers and is resisted by Fighting to boot.

  • Tyranitar faints quickly vs. Fighting-types and needs Crunch to threaten damage.

  • That said, Stone Edge has a very early damage window.

  • Fire Blast is underwhelming in every aspect.

Rating Explanation

Tyranitar has a formidable base stat total and pervasive STAB coverage, making it one of the top attackers to have. While Dragonite and Mewtwo are the game's premier generalists, Tyranitar is a broad specialist with more bulk, chomping through targets weak to Dark and Rock-type moves. However, when it doesn’t have type advantage, Tyranitar is notably slower than more optimal counters.

As a raid attacker, Tyranitar will likely remain the king of Dark-type DPS for a few generations to come. With the advent of Smack Down, it became the undisputed leader of Rock-type DPS. Tyranitar is a critical attacker in raid lineups, bringing bulk to the team without sacrificing DPS.

On defense, Iron Tail and Smack Down can put serious dents in attackers, but Tyranitar falls like a house of cards to Fighting-types. Its motivation drops quickly, begging for it to be knocked out in just a few hours.
