Movesets Grades

* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Waterfall and Hydro Pump make Empoleon a viable Water-type attacker.

  • Flash Cannon should be paired with Metal Claw to counter Fairy-types, and is underwhelming in other matchups.

  • Even without STAB, Blizzard is generally superior to Flash Cannon.

Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Waterfall hits twice as hard as Metal Claw.

  • Hydro Pump is Empoleon's most powerful charged move, and can take attackers by surprise thanks to its early damage window.

  • Blizzard is easier to dodge, but can punish Dragon-type generalists.

  • Flash Cannon is strictly worse than the other two options.

Rating Explanation

This prideful penguin is the only starter ever to boast the useful Steel secondary typing, which gives it as many as 11 resistances, as well as an undesirable weakness to Fighting.

However, like for most other starters, its well-rounded stats just aren’t high enough for it to make waves in the meta. It’s mediocre as a Water, Ice and especially Steel attacker, so for now it may as well sit in the corner, waiting for an eventual Piplup Community Day and its respective exclusive move.
