Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Poison Jab is superior to Bite for STAB and type effectiveness. Bite performs similarly on damage but does not share effectiveness coverage with Nidoqueen’s other moves.

  • Sludge Wave is Nidoqueen’s best charge move. It has unique type coverage with STAB.

  • Earthquake doesn’t pair well with Nidoqueen’s fast moves, but does have STAB. Paired with her Ground-typing, she can be useful against Electric-type raid bosses with it.

  • Stone Edge can be considered for meta-relevant type coverage.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Poison Jab has double the power of Bite when factoring in STAB. Even in unfavorable matchups, it performs as well as Bite.

  • Stone Edge is superior for its early damage window.

  • Sludge Wave and Earthquake, though both have STAB, are easily resisted or reacted to.
Rating Explanation:

Nidoqueen is a strong Pokemon with a key crippling weakness: typing. Nidoqueen's Ground / Poison-typing is extremely unfortunate in the current PoGO metagame, with weaknesses to the common Psychic and Water-type attackers. Also, all three of her charge moves are 1 bar, which hinders her defensive ability.

Nidoqueen can be considered for taking out Fairy-types with a Poison Jab/Sludge Wave attack set. Outside of this scenario, you’re going to have an easy time finding a better Pokemon.
