PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Smack Down and Rock Slide put Rampardos head and shoulders above the competition for Rock-type DPS.

  • There’s really no reason to use Zen Headbutt on offense.

  • Rampardos is a viable Dragon-type attacker with Outrage.

  • Flamethrower is poor despite synergy with Smack Down.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Zen Headbutt is weaker than Smack Down, but it nails Fighting-types effectively.

  • Outrage is easier to dodge than Rock Slide, but it has superior coverage and power.

  • Flamethrower is overall a slightly worse Rock Slide on defense.

PVE Overview

Rampardos’s stats are impressive, with Attack only 5 points shy of Mewtwo. It’s a glass cannon, but nothing as extreme as Gengar or Deoxys; its durability is comparable to that of Espeon or Alakazam instead.

What makes its offensive potential skyrocket, however, is the combination of Smack Down and Rock Slide. They’re the best STAB pair it could have asked for, and they allow it to reach neutral DPS heights that only its majesty Rayquaza could fly at. Although considerably bulkier, Tyranitar and Rhyperior are almost 30% slower than Rampardos! Rampardos is definitely a fantastic rock-type attacker, though careful dodging is definitely recommended in order to keep up its massive DPS for as long as possible.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Smack Down+Rockslide and Flamethrower

Smack Down sits at 4 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 2.66 EPT (Energy Per Turn). Coming off of Rampardos' sky-high attack stat and STAB, this can cause some real pain. However, it's slow to charge. Fortunately, Rock Slide (80 Power/45 Energy) charges reasonably fast. It pairs fairly well with Flamethrower (90 Power/55 Energy) for coverage. In general, you'll want to use this set as a suicide lead or to switch into something that Rampardos can definitely take. As a lead, it has the advantage of dealing very high damage with quick moves while having such huge damage from charged moves that most players who are familiar with Rampardos will definitely want to pull up their shields, paving the road for a team member to wreak havoc. However, in practice, Rampardos' frail nature means it will likely only get off one or possibly two charged attacks before falling. One special note; Outrage (110 Power/60 Energy) is a good attack on paper, but it doesn't net Rampardos too many notable counters and takes longer than Rampardos' other attacks to charge, meaning you'll probably only get it off once without heavy shield investment.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1 / 5

While a monster in PVE, Rampardos doesn't have the build to survive very well in PVP generally speaking. Its heavy slant towards offense and the huge CP gains that this comparatively brings makes Rampardos terribly glassy in the great league. On top of this, a number of top Pokemon in the tier such as Lucario, Medicham, and Bastiodon see it as a trivial non-threat. It does have good machups, but overall superior Pokemon can fill the same niches and still have utility to spare. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

The same basic story plays out in the Ultra League. Look elsewhere for rock-type coverage

Master League: 2 / 5

Rampardos fairs a little better in the Master league, where its full potential as an attacking juggernaut can shine. Unfortunately, it's still not "good". It has good matchups against Pokemon such as Dragonite, Charizard, and Lugia, but it's still overshadowed by Pokemon who can fill this role and see other use as well. The one advantage to Rampardos is the fact that most players will be afraid to not shield its heavy-hitting charged moves outside of resistance. However, it's also taken down remarkably easily by many, many top-tier threats, making it extremely risky to use.
