PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Fire Spin is strictly superior to Ember.
  • Overheat is preferred due to its raw power and synergy with Torkoal’s fast moves.
  • Solar Beam suffices in neutral matchups; Earthquake is awful without STAB

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Fire Spin is strictly superior to Ember.
  • Torkoal’s charge moves are easy to dodge, but Solar Beam has counter coverage.
  • Overheat, if it hits, will deal hefty damage; Earthquake isn’t worth mentioning.

PVE Overview

Torkoal has good moves but is limited by its poor stats. Though defensively oriented, Torkoal has a bad defensive typing and charge moves that are trivial to dodge. It doesn’t help that it’s a regional exclusive.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Fire Spin + Overheat and Earthquake

Overheat is Torkoal’s STAB move, and Earthquake gives some good coverage and is (slightly) cheaper. This turtle’s expensive moves define him as a designated anchor, only to be used when shields are down (and ideally when you have at least one still available). Fire Spin is strictly better than Ember.

Fire Spin + Overheat and Solar Beam

If you want to go all in on super expensive moves that you’ll likely only be able to fire off one of, Solar Beam can work to give you some coverage against any Water- or Ground-type Pokémon that would otherwise threaten Torkoal.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3 / 5

Early on, Torkoal was projected to be one of the best Great League Pokémon available, due to its incredible bulk and high DPE charged moves. However, it just doesn’t have great matchups against the meta-relevant threats, and the fact that it’s all but useless when your opponent has even a single shield makes it vastly less useful. If you have a Torkoal available, feel free to flex it, but it’s no Tropius.

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Maxing out at just under 2100 CP, and with the same issues it has in Great League, Torkoal isn’t that strong in Ultra.

Master League: 1 / 5

Smokey the Turtle says: Only YOU can prevent him from getting completely blown out by a Dialga. Be kind. Don't bring him into Master League.
