Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Frost Breath and Ice Shard perform similarly, but Frost Breath has some slight advantages.

  • Avalanche is a potent 2-bar charge move that outperforms Blizzard, Cloyster's next best charge move.

  • 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 with long cooldown. There's no reason to use these moves.

Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Between Ice Shard and Frost Breath, Ice Shard does more damage on defense. 

  • Avalanche is the obvious superior charge move due to having 2 bars, STAB, and high power. 

  • Hydro Pump is off-type with Cloyster's fast moves and hard to dodge, but Cloyster may not get it off.

  • Aurora Beam and Icy Wind are functional for having multiple bars, but aren't nearly as good as Avalanche.

  • Compared to Avalanche and Hydro Pump, Blizzard is worse on defense in nearly all respects.

Rating Explanation

Cloyster is a fairly common Pokemon that can provide solid Ice-type damage. Ice-types currently in the game lack offensive presence, so Cloyster is actually near the front of the pack in that respect.

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 not a complete pushover on defense due to its typing, which is difficult to counter outright.
