Movesets Grades

* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Water Gun is superior to Confusion for filling Golduck’s role as a Water-type attacker.

  • Hydro Pump should always be paired with Water Gun to fully utilize Golduck’s potential.

  • Psychic and Ice Beam lose out on STAB and perform suboptimally against Golduck’s best matchups.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Confusion is Golduck’s best move on defense, outperforming Water Gun by a huge margin.

  • Ice Beam is superior on defense due to having 2 bars and Grass-type coverage.

  • Hydro Pump beats out Psychic for the earlier damage window and higher power, but both are suboptimal due to the single charge bar.
Rating Explanation

The Water Gun + Hydro Pump combo is commonly seen on many Water-types in Pokemon GO, and Golduck is outclassed by a lot of other Pokemon who are either more powerful, durable, or both. With prestiging removed from the game, Golduck is primarily seen as a poor man’s Vaporeon on offense or a very poor man’s Slowbro on defense.
