Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Poison Jab and Acid are almost exactly the same; They have the same cooldown, and Acid has one less damage per hit, but one more energy. Poison Jab is going to do more damage, so it's slightly better.
  • All three of Tentacruel's charge moves are one bar, which makes its power rankings fairly simple. All three are usable. 
  • Hydro Pump is optimal for the raw damage and STAB. 
  • Sludge Wave is about 20 less damage, and is one of the two types effective against Fairy. 
  • Blizzard has a little more damage than Sludge Wave, and a smaller dodge window. Ice type coverage is SE against Dragon, Grass, Ground, and Flying; all meta-relevant types. 
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Poison Jab is only slightly better than Acid for the damage; both should be usable. 
  • Hydro Pump and Blizzard are preferred, due to type coverage and similar strength levels. 
  • Sludge Wave is more relevant on offense, since Fairy types aren't typically attackers.

Rating Explanation:

Tentacruel is typically an overlooked Pokemon in the normal games, but in PoGo, it's a defensive powerhouse. With one of the highest defense stats, Tentacruel is a great choice for defending gyms, and taking down Fairy types. It has a natural resistance to almost half of all move types, and weakness to only three. 

 

Unfortunately, Tentacruel's gonna get hit hard by meta relevant sweepers; Alakazam, Espeon, Lugia, Rhydon, and Jolteon to some respect. Luckily, Tentacruel's high defense stat and decent stamina, it will stand its own even in these unfavorable matchups.
