Pokemon Go Moves and highest DPS attacks

Pokemon moves have been an integral part of the franchise since its inception, from the damage counters of the Trading Card Game through to the bombastic Z-Moves of Pokemon Sun and Moon.

Moves, of course, continue the trend, and whilst battling isn’t yet taking centre stage in the mobile game, much of the player-base are now at the point where there’s an interest in maximising CP for the strongest team, along with catching the best Pokemon and, of course, figuring out their strongest moves.

Despite the relative simplicity on the surface, a Pokemon’s moveset can make a pretty remarkable difference to its success in taking down gyms. Movesets play a central part in how the most serious players choose when to Power Up and evolve their Pokemon precisely because a fully-evolved, maxed-out Dragonite could still get taken down by something weaker if the moveset isn’t right.

What’s more, there’s been a huge update with the coming of Gen 2. We’ve ensured all of those changes are included below so, with everything now up to date, let’s dive in!

Pokemon Go moves list

Below are the full movesets for every Pokemon so far, based on info that we’ve gathered from Serebii.net, the Silph Road, and Redditor Professor_Kukui’s calculations, plus the work from the Silph Road community. The DPS for each move is also included (in brackets), so that you can quickly make a decision on what’s best for your Pokemon at a glance.
