* Legacy Moveset

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Shadow Claw, one of the highest DPS fast moves in Pokemon GO, is strictly superior to Hex.
  • Shadow Ball is Banette’s greatest charge move, having better damage, a STAB bonus, and coverage than Dazzling Gleam.
  • Thunder is by far Banette’s worst charge move and should be TMd
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Hex is slightly better than Shadow Claw, offering slightly higher damage and more energy gains.
  • Dazzling Gleam is arguably superior to Shadow Ball on defense as it punishes offending Tyranitar and Dragonite better.
  • Both charge moves are vastly superior to Thunder.

Rating Explanation:

Having less attack and overall bulk compared to Gengar should be enough to make Banette a non-contender in Pokemon GO. However, with its pure Ghost-typing and access to a non-legacy Shadow Claw, it can perform as well as Gengar when fighting Psychic-type raid bosses. Aside from these few niches, Banette will likely reside in even Hex Gengar’s shadow as an attacker.

On defense, Banette has very little to offer, much like all Ghost-types not named “Dusclops” in Pokemon GO. While it does pack the bane of Tyranitar and Dragonite, Dazzling Gleam, Banette will likely be defeated before it has a chance to fire one off.

Overall, Banette is a nice collectable Pokemon with a few niches under its belt for attack. Perhaps things will look up for it once Pokemon GO gets mega evolutions.
