Movesets Grades

* Legacy Moveset

X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Poison Jab and Acid are almost exactly the same; they have the same duration but different DPS and EPS.

  • Hydro Pump is optimal for the raw power and STAB, while Sludge Wave creates a full Poison-type moveset.

  • Blizzard is a solid move, but there are better candidates for Ice-type offense.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Poison Jab is only slightly better than Acid for the damage; both are usable.

  • Hydro Pump is preferred for the raw power and very early damage window.

  • Sludge Wave and Blizzard don’t have significant advantages over each other.
Rating Explanation

Tentacruel is typically an overlooked Pokemon in the normal games, but in GO, it's a defensive powerhouse, and Niantic’s CEO John Hanke’s favorite. For this very reason, we cannot rate it too low.

… Just kidding, we here at GamePress base our ratings solely on actual performance! Tentacruel is somewhat bulky, but its offensive ability leaves much to be desired. On defense, it’s stuck with 1-bar fast moves, which are awful when Tentacruel is demotivated. On the bright side, it resists Fighting, which at least slightly annoys Machamp.
