Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Extrasensory is Lugia’s best quick move, targeting Poison and Fighting-types for STAB effective damage.

  • Dragon Tail can provide neutral coverage against Psychic-types.

  • Sky Attack trumps Future Sight in a vacuum, but Future Sight is useful against more targets due to sharing a type with Extrasensory.

  • Thanks to Sky Attack's buff from 70 to 80 damage, it can perform as well as Future Sight in most cases. 

  • Hydro Pump isn’t a bad charge move, but it has no use on Lugia.

Rating Explanation

As a cover legendary, Lugia is somewhat disappointing like Ho-Oh. Its stats are heavily slanted towards defense, which is not ideal in the current raid-centered metagame. Because it is a legendary species, Lugia can’t use its bulk as a gym defender, so its role is primarily as a bulky Psychic-type attacker.

In raids, Lugia is one of the bulkiest viable attackers against Machamp and Gengar, making it a cheap investment for solos. Lugia also runs through gyms without breaking a sweat and anchors teams far better than Snorlax and Blissey. Note that Lugia is currently the most Potion-efficient attacker in the game and will remain the bulkiest Fighting-type counter for generations.
