Are you having trouble figuring out which moves are the best? We put together and list to help out with what moves you can expect from certain Pokemon, different Pokemon that can use the move, and some that are just weird.
(seriously, some of these are weird).
Pokemon Effectiveness Chart
If you take a look at the chart above, you can see that despite one Pokemon being a higher level than another doesn't necessarily mean it will come out on top. Aside from taking a look at a creature's HP and IVs, one must also consider the effectiveness of a move against what would be considered its opposite type. Take a look at the chart above to get a general idea before jumping into a battle.
Moves By Pokemon Type
Here, we'll separate the moves by type to give a little clarity. You'll get a general idea of what the move does, and some of the Pokemon that are best to use it on. Since there are a whole lot of creatures to go through, this will be a little easier for us to understand. This is the current list of moves Pokemon can learn in Pokemon Go.
Remember, despite the classification of moves by type, it does not mean certain Pokemon won't be able to use them.
