Movesets Grades

* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation

  • You almost always want Sucker Punch in any situation that you’d use Cacturne.
  • Dark Pulse shares typing with Sucker Punch to make a decent Dark-type moveset.
  • Grass Knot is one of the best charge moves in the game, compensating for lack of fast move synergy.
  • Dynamic Punch is cool, but best left to Fighting-types.

Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Poison Jab slightly outdamages Sucker Punch, but the latter gains energy faster.
  • All of Cacturne’s charge moves are great for defense, even if Cacturne itself isn’t. Grass Knot may be the worst, being widely resisted and slightly easier to dodge.

Rating Explanation

Gen 3 introduced not one, but two Grass / Dark type Pokemon. Cacturne is strictly worse than Shiftry, having lower DPS movesets despite higher Atk and somehow even less bulk.
