Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Frost Breath and Ice Shard perform similarly in DPS, but Frost Breath has an overall slight edge.

  • Avalanche is a great hard-hitting 2 bar charge move. It tends to outperform Blizzard, Cloyster's next best charge move option.

  • Hydro Pump, while being a great move with STAB, doesn't share the same typing as Cloyster's fast moves.

  • Aurora Beam and Icy Wind deal mediocre damage and have long cooldown. TM these moves if you can. 

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Between Ice Shard and Frost Breath, Ice Shard does marginally more damage on defense. 

  • Avalanche is the clear superior charge move due to having 2 bars, STAB, and dealing good damage. 

  • Aurora Beam and Icy Wind are functional on defense by virtue of having multiple bars, but aren't nearly as good as Avalanche.

  • 1 bar moves such as Hydro Pump and Blizzard are risky, as Cloyster may not be able to get them off. However, Hydro Pump has the advantage of being off-type with Cloyster's fast moves and is difficult to dodge.

Rating Explanation:

Cloyster is a fairly common Pokemon to find that can really help take down some strong contenders. Dragonite, for instance, will be cowering at a powered up Cloyster with two Ice moves. Cloyster's move suite is nice to pick from, although there is not much variation. The only non-Ice move its got is Hydro Pump. Its role in the metagame is essentially like a slightly worse Lapras.

Although Cloyster has one of the highest Def stats in the game, it's backed up by embarrassingly low HP, which makes Cloyster's bulk merely above average. It's still somewhat tough due to its typing, which is difficult to counter outright.
