PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Bite is generally superior to Astonish due to the former’s higher DPS and maneuverability.

  • Play Rough is preferred for its novelty as a STAB Fairy-type move.

  • Iron Head is used to deal with Fairy-types.

  • Do not use Vice Grip.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Bite and Astonish perform similarly and have similar coverage.
  • Iron Head and Play Rough also perform very similarly, but the latter has slightly higher DPS and better coverage.
  • Please don’t use Vice Grip.

PVE Overview

Although its base stats are mediocre in every metric, Mawile holds some novelty courtesy of its unique typing. Steel resists Dragon, while Fairy double-resists Dragon, making this poor little Pokemon into a wall against what is generally considered the greatest neutral-coverage type in the game. That said, please don't use Mawile in raids, as even with a super effective Play Rough, its low damage could cost your team the raid unless you've got a lot of support.

While Mawile does have a Mega Evolution coming up in gen 6 (depending on when/if Niantic implements this feature), Mawile's future position is terribly worrisome. In the main series, its stats go from low to average, but its real claim to fame comes in the form of its ability, Huge Power, which literally doubles Mega Mawile's "decent" stats, giving it the highest effective attack stat in the game. However, given Pokemon Go's lack of abilities, Mega Mawile might very well end up horribly average unless given some extremely powerful moves during this advanced state. If not, then Mawile might have the dubious honor of obtaining the worst mega evolution in Pokemon Go.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Bite+Play Rough and Iron Head

Bite is definitely Mawile's best quick move at 4 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 2 EPT (Energy Per Turn). Play Rough (90 Power/60 Energy) provides Mawile the invaluable fairy STAB that it needs to perform its main function as a dragon-slayer, while Iron Head (70 Power/50 Energy) charges faster and provides a secondary STAB. 

Bite+Iron Head and Vice Grip

This set foregoes the use of the more expensive Play Rough in order to add Mawile's cheapest move, Vice Grip (40 Power/40 Energy). This grants Mawile slightly better general utility, but it's an overall poor set by comparison as Mawile is far less effective in the only niche that it has.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1 / 5

Mawile... exists... in the Great League. When using its Fairy STAB in conjunction with its huge triple resistance to Dragon type moves, not to mention its plethora of other resistances, it can potentially act as a highly effective counter to Pokemon such as Altaria, Dragonite, Dragonair, and even Deoxys-D. But, honestly, that's where its use ends. It's far too weak to be good in any other roles, and its best Quick move, Bite, forces it to charge its moves at a snail's pace. If it had a decent Fairy type quick move it could be a real threat, but as of right now it only exists to fill a few very specialized niches and nothing more.

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Mawile is unviable in the Ultra League.

Master League: 0 / 5

Mawile is unviable in the Master League.
