PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Water Gun should be paired with Surf. This set is better than the Ground-type set against most targets, including Rock-types.
  • Mud Shot should be paired with Earthquake. This set has an advantage against Steel, Electric, and Poison-types.
  • Sludge Wave is underwhelming in every aspect.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Mud Shot is slightly superior to Water Gun, offering slightly better coverage and cross-weather benefits.
  • Surf is superior to Sludge Wave, having a lower energy cost and earlier dodge window.
  • Sludge Wave offers counter coverage against Grass-types, however.
  • Earthquake is underwhelming in every aspect despite having STAB.

PVE Overview

Swampert’s strong, well-rounded stats in the main series games don’t translate quite so well to GO, where it suffers from lacking power. Although it has good Water- and Ground-type moves, other Pokemon do those roles better.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Mud Shot + Surf and Earthquake

This moveset is geared towards getting to the charge moves as quickly as possible. Mud Shot, 1.5 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 4.5 EPT (Energy Per Turn), is a solid charge move for Pokemon Go PvP as it allows you to have fantastic energy gain to use your charge moves before the enemy can. Surf, 65 Damage and 45 Energy cost, is a solid choice when it comes to low energy charge moves as it will cover Fire, Rock and Ground type Pokemon while still doing neutral damage to 12/18 types in Pokemon Go. Earthquake, 120 Damage and 65 Energy cost, is what makes Swampert a huge threat, it can get to Earthquake quickly with the high EPT that Mud Shot provides to do devastating damage to most Pokemon in its way.

Water Gun + Surf and Earthquake

This moveset is meant for general coverage and relying more on the fast move of Water Gun for damage. Water Gun, 3.00 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3.00 EPT (Energy Per Turn), is a balanced fast move providing great neutral damage to 12/18 types in Pokemon Go and super effective damage to Fire, Rock and Ground type Pokemon. Surf, 65 Damage and 45 Energy cost, is a great charge move for the energy cost that will still provide great neutral damage to most of the meta. Earthquake, 120 Damage and 65 Energy cost, will take awhile to charge with Water Gun as a fast move, but once reached it can great damage to an unshielded opponent.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3/5

Swampert is a solid pick for the Great League, however, it’s outclassed by Marshstomp, Whiscash and Quagsire from the Water/Ground meta. If you are looking for stardust savings this would be a great option for the Great League as you can evolve it near 1500 Combat Power and have a second charge move unlock cost of 10k. Watch out for those Razor Leaf users as Swampert is 4x weak to Grass.

Ultra League: 4/5

Things start getting really good for Swampert in theSwampert is a beast for Pokemon Go PvP in the Ultra League, Swampert really gets to spread its paws as it reaches almost full stat potential allowing it to get the stats needed to battle with the best of them. Watch out for those Grass type Pokemon as they will be doing 4x damage to Swampert.

Master League: 5/5

Swampert is a beast for Pokemon Go PvP in the Master League as it can cover some of the major meta Pokemon we see like Dialga and Melmetal. However, we still need to watch out for the Grass Pokemon like Roserade and Torterra as they will be doing 4x damage to Swampert.
