Pokmon moves have been an integral part of the franchise since its inception, from the
damage counters of the Trading Card Game through to the upcoming, bombasic Z-Moves
of Pokmon Sun and Moon. Pokmon Go, of course, continues the trend, and whils
battling isn't yet taking centre sage in the mobile game, much of the playerbase are now at
the point where there's an interes in maximising CP for the sronges team, along with
catching the bes Pokmon in Pokmon Go and, of course, fguring out their sronges
moves.
Despite the relative simplicity on the surface, a Pokmon's moveset can make a pretty
remarkable diference to its success in taking down gyms. Movesets play a central part in
how the mos serious players choose when to Power Up and evolve their Pokmon
precisely because a fully-evolved, maxed-out Dragonite could sill get taken down by
something weaker if the moveset isn't right.
So, which are the sronges, highes damage-per-second (DPS) moves in Pokmon Go, and
which Pokmon can learn them?

Below are the full movesets for every Pokmon in Pokmon Go so far, based on info that
we've gathered from Serebii.net, the Silph Road, and Redditor Professor_Kukui's
calculations. The moves are also ranked in order of DPS, which is shown in brackets next

Pokmon Go bes moves - Fas Attacks


Fas Attacks in Pokmon Go revolve around two key factors: the damage dealt per second
(DPS) and the amount of Energy generated from each attack.
That's largely because the main factor which determines how often you can use the move is
the amount of time it takes for the attack animation to complete. Fas Attacks don't have
any other resources which govern their use, so it's simply a case of fnding out how many
seconds it takes to complete the attack before you can immediately use it again. With that
in mind, the DPS is how we've ranked this lis.
The other factor worth noting in assessing the srength of Fas Attacks is the Energy
generated. Because the more powerful Special Attacks rely on energy to be used, and as
such you'll want to balance your Fas Attacks' damage with generating as much energy as
possible, depending on how often you want to use your Special Attack. Since the mos
recent patch however, you'll essentially want to use Special Attacks as often as possible,
so it's well worth keeping an eye on the Energy column as you way up your options here.

Pokmon Go bes moves - Special Attacks


Deciding on the sronges, mos efcient Special Attacks in Pokmon Go is no easy feat.
Whils DPS plays a part - and we've kept that as our means of ranking them for now - it's
less central to a Special Attack's efectiveness as it is for Fas Attacks.
That's because Special Attacks aren't really governed by how quickly you can sart the next
attack animation, but by how much Energy they cos, and how quickly you can charge that
energy up.
As you look at your Pokmon's Special
Attacks, you'll see that sometimes the blue
Energy bar is a single, long srip, and

Pokmon Go Moves - movesets, move list, and highest DPS attacks Eurogamer.net

sometimes it's split into several smaller


bars. The full length of that meter is always
100 Energy, but the smaller bars mean that,
for that particular move, you can use it
whenever a single one of those smaller bars
are flled. Hyper Beam, for example, has
one long bar, meaning it coss 100 Energy
to use. Body Slam, meanwhile, has two
smaller bars half the length of the full one,
meaning it coss 50 Energy to use.
Body Slam and Hyper Beam also serve as a
good example for showing why both DPS
and Energy Cos play integral parts in
ranking moves. Body Slam, for insance,
has a marginally higher DPS than Hyper
Beam, however for each 100 Energy you
can use jus two Body Slams - at 40 Power for every one Hyper Beam - at 120 Power meaning you'll do a total of 80 Power with
Body Slam for every 120 that you do with
Hyper Beam. In that case then, Hyper Beam
is the more optimal move despite it's lower
ranking for DPS.

Magikarp has some cracking moves.

Then again, DPS sill afects things, because if Hyper Beam were even slower than it
already is - in terms of literal seconds to fnish the attack animation - then an excessively
low DPS would drop it down below Body Slam in the pecking order, again. It basically
depends on whether you could make up that extra 40 Power between two Body Slams and
one Hyper Beam, with the extra Fas Attacks you'd be able to use in the additional time
you'd have from not charging your extra slow Hyper Beam.
With that in mind, the balancing of overall Power, DPS, Animation Time and Energy Cos is
an important skill in deciding the bes Special Attack for your Pokmon. We've included a
"Damage-Per-100 Energy" column in the table below, so that you can compare those
factors a little more easily yourselves, and save the efort of working it out for each move
comparison like the Hyper Beam example above.
If all this sill hasn't put you of and your thirs for never ending Pokmon depth has yet to be
quenched, then Redditor Professor_Kukui has compiled a highly detailed, if intimidating,
spreadsheet ranking the exact efciency of all Pokmon and their relative movesets,
including some other extra factors not featured here.

Also, head over to Jelly Deals for the bes deals on Pokemon Go accessories.

Other factors to bear in mind when choosing the bes


Pokmon Go moves
Same type attack bonus, or STAB, is an important factor in deciding a move's srength.
A move's power is multiplied by 1.25 - so a 100 Power move is insead 125 Power when the Pokmon using it is the same type as the move, so it's well worth adding that
to your thoughts on how to kit out your squad. We also have a full Pokmon Go Type
Chart for your ease of use, alongside details on how to catch Pokmon according to
their Type locations, too.
Your Pokmon's Attack sat does of course modify the srength of a move by a
considerable amount, so it's worth checking out our lis of the bes, mos powerful
Pokmon in Pokmon Go where we rank them according to Attack, Defense, and a
combination of all sats if you're building a team from scratch. The exact formula for how
Attack afects the damage dealt is sill unknown at this point, however.
Some moves are better for defending Gyms than attacking, as Gym defense is
automated. The AI will automatically use a Fas Attack every two seconds when
defending, and no faser, whils it will use Special Attacks as soon as they're available,
regardless of their srength. That means the likes of Bubble - which has a fairly average
DPS thanks to it's slow Animation Time - is a very srong move when defending, as all
moves' Animation Times are efectively brought up to 2 when defending anyway.
Some Special Attacks have such a low DPS that it's actually not even worth using them
compared to your Pokmon's Fas Attacks. Icy Wind, for example, has a measly 6.58
DPS, meaning that you'll actually do better chipping away with your Articuno's Fros
Breath than you would be using it's Special. That controversial, free Articuno handed
out and then revoked recently is an example of that rather unfortunate moveset in
action.
