PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Razor Leaf should be paired with Leaf Blade; this is Shiftry’s preferred moveset.
  • Feint Attack should be paired with Foul Play; this is a viable Dark-type moveset.
  • Hurricane and Leaf Tornado offers no offensive utility.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Although Razor Leaf has higher power, most attackers into Shiftry will resist it but not Feint Attack.
  • Leaf Blade has 3 bars and an early dodge window; this is key when considering Shiftry’s frailty.
  • Foul Play has 2 bars and a later dodge window, but tends to be less resisted by Shiftry’s counters.
  • Hurricane has counter coverage an early dodge window, but Shiftry will often faint before using it.

PVE Overview

Shiftry is one of those Pokemon that’s designed like Vileplume or Victreebel. In terms of stats, it’s actually nearly identical to Victreebel. Shiftry can attack either from the Grass or Dark end, although it’s outclassed at both, and it’s slightly better at Grass-type offense. It can succeed in some tier 3 solo raids, which is better than what most Pokemon can do.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Razor Leaf + Leaf Blade and Foul Play

This moveset can tear apart Water, Rock and Ground Pokemon while giving you nice Ghost and Psychic coverage. Razor Leaf, 5.5 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 2.0 EPT (Energy Per Turn), is the hardest hitting move in the game, because of this it can not only destroy Water, Rock and Ground type Pokemon but it can do heavy neutral damage to anything that doesn’t resist Grass. Leaf Blade, 70 Damage and 35 Energy cost, pairs well with Razor Leaf as it requires very low energy to charge and will still do great damage. Foul Play, 70 Damage and 45 Energy cost, is again a low energy charge move for decent damage while giving you Ghost and Psychic coverage.

Razor Leaf + Leaf Tornado and Foul Play

This moveset is geared to still do great damage and coverage while having the chance to lower the enemies stats. Razor Leaf, 5.5 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 2.0 EPT (Energy Per Turn), is going to be a must have on Shiftry for its raw damage output. Leaf Tornado, 45 Damage and 40 Energy cost, won’t be used as a source of damage, but instead as a chance to lower the enemies attack, a full article on this move can be found [here]. Foul Play, 70 Damage and 45 Energy cost, will give you that nice coverage for low energy cost to keep Ghost and Psychic Pokemon in check.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3/5

As great as Razor Leaf is, who is using it matters and in the Great League Shiftry isn’t the top dog for this move. That doesn’t mean that it won’t play a crucial role in certain Silph Arena Cup’s. For example Shiftry is a fantastic pick for the Nightmare Cup for May 2019.

Ultra League: 3/5

Shiftry is still a decent pick for the Ultra League, it will handle the Water/Ground meta like Swampert while having some good coverage for Psychic Pokemon like Cresselia.

Master League: 1/5

Shiftry is a long way from being a top tier pick for the Master League, although it will still have its key matchups. It would be best to keep your Shiftry in the Great and Ultra League.
