Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Bubble is Kingler’s best fast move, as it fills Kingler’s role as an offensive Water-type.

  • Metal Claw and Mud Shot lack STAB and are inferior picks, as Kingler has little utility outside of its niche.

  • Water Pulse is clearly superior to X-Scissor and Vice Grip for STAB and type coverage.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Bubble is the only one of Kingler’s fast moves with appreciable defensive DPS.

  • X-Scissor has a low energy requirement and coverage for Grass-types. Vice Grip also has a low energy requirement and early damage window, but is weaker.

  • Water Pulse is acceptable, but suffers from being more easily dodged.

Rating Explanation:

Kingler has the distinction of being the Water-type Pokemon with the highest Atk currently obtainable in Pokemon GO. In the current raid-centered metagame, that should define it as a viable offensive option. But stats mean little without the moveset to back it up, and Kingler unfortunately does not even out-DPS Vaporeon despite the latter’s lower Atk, while also being much frailer.

Until Kingler gets better Water-type moves, it will continue to reside in Vaporeon’s shadow, like many of the Water-type Pokemon in this game.
