Disruptor Build Explanation

This build utilizes Surf and Hydro Pump to displace enemies and disrupt their positioning. The key to this build is getting the proper angle to shove targets with Surf and Hydro Pump.

  • Slick Spoon gives Blastoise a decent amount of HP and Sp. Atk. It also grants Sp. Def. penetration for added damage.
  • Energy Amplifier provides cooldown reductions, and it gives a massive damage boost whenever Blastoise uses Hydro Typhoon.
  • Focus Band is a staple defensive item for the build, giving Blastoise the durability and survivability it needs to keep displacing enemies.
  • Wise Glasses or Choice Specs can be a replacement for Slick Spoon for more damage.
  • For a more defensive build, replace Slick Spoon and Energy Amplifier with Resonant Guard and Exp. Share.
  • Eject Button gives Blastoise a repositioning tool to better set up Surf and Hydro Pump.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems for more damage and 6 White Emblems for additional HP. This can be achieved by equipping at least two (2) Emblems that are both Green and White.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk or HP to balance Blastoise's offense and defense.
  • Attack and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build focuses on displacing enemies with Surf and Hydro Pump, equipping items that will balance Blastoise's offense and defense is the ideal build. Focus Band is a core defensive item for the build.

As the result show, equipping Slick Spoon and Energy Amplifier would be the best item choice. Even if the item combination did not produce the best results in terms of damage, it is the most balanced item combination. It only scored the second best damage output but gives HP and cooldown reduction in return, which is perfect for the build.

As for alternatives, replacing Energy Amplifier with Choice Specs would be the best choice. The item combination maintains a good balance of offense and defense without the need for using Hydro Typhoon.

These damage tests are conducted using the Training Dummy in Practice Mode. The results are taken from the Total Damage data.

Rapid Spin Build Explanation

This build is centered on maximizing the damage of Blastoise's Rapid Spin and Water Spout combo. It's best to play safe early on until Blastoise reaches level 7 to get both of its moves.

  • Wise Glasses provides Blastoise with more Sp. Atk. thanks to its percentage bonus.
  • Sp. Atk. Specs further boosts Blastoise's Sp. Atk. stat, boosting its damage output significantly.
  • Focus Band increases Blastoise's durability through increased defenses and also acts a survivability tool, which works well during Rapid Spin.
  • Slick Spoon can be an atlernative to Wise Glasses, sacrificing damage slightly for more HP.
  • Energy Amplifier can also be an alternative to Wise Glasses for more damage and cooldown reductions.
  • Eject Button gives Blastoise a repositioning tool during Rapid Spin.
  • However, X Speed can also work for the build to increase Blastoise's overall mobility.
  • The build's Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems for more damage and 6 White Emblems for additional HP. This can be achieved by equipping at least two (2) Emblems that are both Green and White.
  • Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk or HP to balance Blastoise's offense and defense.
  • Attack and Critical-Hit Rate can be freely traded for the other stats.

Since the build is centered on maximizing Blastoise's Rapid Spin and Water Spout combo, equipping items that will yield the highest possible combo damage is the ideal item combination.

As the results show, Choice Specs, Wise Glasses, and a fully-stacked Sp. Atk. Specs will produce the best damage output. The item combination gives Blastoise a massive Sp. Atk. stat boost, especially once Sp. Atk. Specs is fully stacked.

As for alternatives, replacing Choice Specs with Energy Amplifier would be the best option. The item combination produced the second best damage output for the combo. However, it does require Blastoise to fully stack Sp. Atk. Specs and trigger Energy Amplifier's effect first to reach maximum damage.

For the best build that requires no setup in any way, replacing Sp. Atk. Specs with Slick Spoon would be the ideal choice. The item combination is a straightfoward damage build that also gives some durability via HP.

For a more defensive build, replacing Choice Specs with Focus Band would be the best alternative. However, the item combination does require Blastoise to stack Sp. Atk. Specs first for maximum effect.

That being said, for the best defensive build that requires no setup, replacing Sp. Atk. Specs with Focus Band instead would be the prime option.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Surf ImageSurf Surf is a versatile move that gives Blastoise crowd control and mobility during fights.
Hydro Pump ImageHydro Pump Hydro Pump deals high damage, displace opponents, and can prolong Surf's stun when used together.

This moveset gives Blastoise a great pair of crowd control moves that also deal decent damage. Using Surf and Hydro Pump together can disrupt opponents for a considerable amount of time during fights, allowing Blastoise's team to follow up with their own moves and attacks.

Choosing a moveset depends on the player's playstyle. For an aggressive playstyle, always choose Water Spout and Rapid Spin. For a typical defender playstyle, Surf and Hydro Pump are the best choice.

How to Play Blastoise

Jump to Section

Setup Knockouts in the Early Game

Use Skull Bash and Water Gun in the early game to set up knockouts. The best way to execute this is by using Skull Bash to quickly go behind your targets, then pushing them back with Water Gun.

Reach Level 7 Quickly

Try to reach level 7 as soon as you can so you can access your full moveset. Don't get too aggressive in the early game, and only fight if you have an advantage over your opponents. Focus on defending your goal zone, farming wild Pokemon, and scoring points if given chance.

Use Boosted Attacks to Reduce Move Cooldowns

Blastoise's Boosted Attacks will reduce your move cooldowns by 1 second per use. This will still play in effect even if no enemies are nearby! If your moves are down and a crucial fight is about to happen, don't hesitate to fire some empty attacks in the air to reduce your moves' cooldowns.

Change Playstyle Based on Moveset

Blastoise generally has two playstyles; a traditional tank or an Sp. Atk damage dealer. These playstyles depend on which moveset you chose. Knowing and understanding how these move combinations work together allows you to play the Pokemon more effectively.

Get Aggressive with Rapid Spin and Water Spout

Rapid Spin and Water Spout turns Blastoise into an AoE damage dealer, especially when used together. If you're going with this move combination, you need to be aggressive once you have them both. Aim for squishy targets like Pikachu as you can potentially knockout them out within the duration of Rapid Spin. You can also try to steal objectives like Regieleki from the enemy.

Displace Enemies with Surf and Hydro Pump

Surf and Hydro Pump allow you to displace and control enemy movements. You can shove targets towards your team or zone them out entirely from areas. You can also set up fights and make it easier for your allies to follow up with their moves.

Save Hydro Typhoon for Teamfights

Hydro Typhoon is one of the best teamfight move in the game thanks to its wide AoE, stun, and damage. Try to save Hydro Typhoon only for teamfights as much as possible as it'll give you and your team a better chance in winning the fight. Morever, it's best to use it at the start of the fight rather than as a finisher.

Use Eject Button for Better Positioning

You can use Eject Button to get a better position and use Hydro Typhoon. You can either use it before Hydro Typhoon or during it.

I just experimented and found out that you can swap slick spoon for wise glasses becausw it increases 7% of yoir damage. Now the energy amplifier works differently, instead of using blastoise's base dmg without the glasses it uses blastoise's base dmg with the glasses so if you do your calculations, the energy amplifier will use a higher base dmg. And by uaing its percentage you get a higher 21% dmg boost. I alao did the experiment and the unite + hydro pump does 3,848 dmg, your welcome

water spout is good because it can be active while using spin. I like to hit them with spout to slow them down and do some damage and then hit the spin at the same time and with spout you can hold down the spout move while spinning to shoot water which does pretty good constant damage and increases movement speed so you can chase people down
