Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Confusion has higher DPS, and both moves have STAB, but Psycho Cut is preferred due to its energy build.
  • Future Sight is a no-brainer here: its one of the highest DPS moves in the game, and gets STAB. Future Sight is what wins matches for Alakazam.
  • Shadow Ball is the runner up for type coverage against Ghosts and Psychics, and has higher DPS than Focus Blast. Having an Alakazam with Shadow Ball will be very useful against Psychic type raid bosses. 
  • Focus Blast gives Alakazam some great type coverage over meta relevant Pokemon such as Blissey, Snorlax, and Lapras. 
  • For Legacy moves, Psychic beats Dazzling Gleam most of the time due to STAB. Dazzling Gleam’s strengths lie defensive type coverage, and use against 
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Confusion is going to get the most damage in, if you choose to defend with Alakazam. Trainers who don't dodge will take big hits. 
  • Shadow Ball has the highest likelihood to land a hit as well, due to the low charge time. Also favorable due to type coverage.
  • Dazzling Gleam can help against Dark/Fairy types, but has a long charge time. Focus Blast can help take out those Dark types as well.

Rating Explanation:

Alakazam is a glass cannon. Raid bosses like Muk, Weezing, and Machamp are easy targets, and even without type advantage you’re going to hit hard.  As long as you’re not against a Tyranitar or Scizor(Dark or Steel types), Alakazam is the pick. Future Sight is one of the best charge moves in the game, and Psycho Cut will build the charge meter fast enough.

 

The Psychic type is very weak to a lot of popular attackers(Snorlax’s Lick, Tyranitar’s Bite, etc), and without any stamina it will be lucky to get a Shadow Ball off if defending. Don’t defend with Alakazam. Attack, and win, with Alakazam.

Raid Boss Counters
SupremeOverall best counter always. Almost always top in DPS and very high in survivability. The Pokemon you want for the job.
GoodThe next best if you don’t have Supreme Pokemon.
TankWhen you’re down to your 5-6th Pokemon and need to hold the line and not suck while doing it. Tanks always have more survivability than Supreme, but less DPS than Good.
GlassMore DPS than Good with significantly less survivability. Note: Less DPS than Supreme.
