Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Spark has a slight edge over Charge Beam; the former has a lower cooldown and slightly higher DPS for marginally lower energy gains.

  • Zap Cannon is the preferred charge move since it suits Magneton’s role as a Electric-type glass cannon.

  • Magnet Bomb is clearly superior to Flash Cannon; the former boasts greater maneuverability with 3 bars, and the latter has terrible base power for a 1 bar move.

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Charge Beam is superior to Spark due to its higher defensive DPS.

  • Flash Cannon is preferred due to its relatively early damage window and its ability to hit Ground-type counters for neutral damage; note: Magneton may not survive long enough to use this move.

  • Magnet Bomb, despite being 3-bar move, has a longer cooldown than its 1 bar competitor, coupled with a later damage window.

  • Zap Cannon is generally inferior due to its late damage window and lack of counter coverage.

Rating Explanation:

In a meta that’s starved of decent Electric-types, Magneton seems to float behind Jolteon every step of the way. Our magnet friend’s stats fall just short of Jolteon’s in every category, but has a redeeming quality in its typing. Steel-type, while terrible on offense, combines with Electric-type to provide 12 resistances, 3 of which are double resistances.

When considering the role of a glass cannon, durability isn’t usually an important factor, but since Magneton’s biggest rival lacks dual typing, our trio of magnets may be a contender when picking attackers for Articuno or Lugia. At the end of the day, both can shred Gyarados just as good as the other guy.
