PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Smack Down should be paired with Stone Edge for high-tier Rock DPS.

  • Mud Slap should go with Earthquake for similarly high-tier Ground DPS.

  • When both are super effective, Surf performs better than Earthquake, but it’s poor otherwise.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Smack Down is marginally better than Mud Slap. Both are defensively solid.

  • Stone Edge is preferred for defense due to its early damage window.

  • Surf is Rhyperior’s only 2-bar move, but it’s weak vs. Water and Grass types.

  • Earthquake is slow and easy to dodge.

PVE Overview

Rhydon already had great stats, but its brand new evolution has superior ones, plus STAB movesets of both its types.

With Rock-type moves, its performance is very similar to that of legacy Tyranitar, and that is welcome news for those who lack the necessary event-exclusive move. However, it still falls very short of Rampardos. As a Ground-type attacker, it can’t quite touch the likes of Groudon, Excadrill, and Garchomp, but it’s still a great option and easier to obtain than those two.

Rhyperior is also very tanky, but its potential as a defender is ruined by the easily exploitable double weaknesses to Grass and Water. The weakness to Fighting doesn’t help either.

Rhyperior has a bit more potential as a Rock Type attacker in particular than it shows now, as in the main series it has a signature attack named Rock Wrecker, which sports a particularly high base power. However, when/if it will be implemented is unknown.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Smack Down+Surf and Stone Edge OR Earthquake

Smack Down is an objectively good move for Rhyperior. It has 4 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 2.66 EPT (Energy Per Turn), meaning it will rack up some solid damage thanks to its good offensive coverage combined with STAB. Surf (65 Power/40 Energy) is Rhyperior's cheapest charged move, and a good move at that. Of all of its moves, Surf has the greatest functional synergy with Smack Down's low energy gains. Beyond this, Rhyperior also has two genuinely good STAB charged moves in Stone Edge (100 Power/55 Energy) and Earthquake (120 Power/65 Energy). The choice between the two largely comes down to what Rhyperior is being used to counter, though Stone Edge has the advantage due to its lower energy cost.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 1.5 / 5

Rhyperior's stats are highly restricted in the Great League, and it has to contend with a number of Grass types in particular in the tier. It has some nice moves that can make it a bit viable, but it's not a top pick here by any stretch.

Ultra League: 1.5 / 5

A bit more unbound, but so many of Rhyperior's top counters are outright top Pokemon in the tier that it really can't function to any great degree.

Mater League: 4 / 5

With the plethora of dragons and the like at the top of the tier threatening away most of its prime counters, Rhyperior can bring out its good moveset and great bulk to wall unprepared teams.A solid prime or counter-pick due to its unique skill-set and huge defense, Rhyperior is definitely a good pick for the tier, taking down big names like Lugia and Dragonite with ease. However, it huge bulk is easily invalidated by its long list of weaknesses and double-weaknesses, making it require more team support than some other Pokemon that have similar functions in the tier.
