SS Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Cramorant ImageCramorant S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Incredible in team fights, but requires proper mastery
Cramorant hosts devastating moves and attacks that require proper mastery to be effective. When properly utilized however, Cramorant can obliterate its foes from a safe distance...and with extreme prejudice.

S Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Pikachu ImagePikachu S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Amazing long range lockdown
Pikachu's insane damage and ability to lock enemies down with Stuns earns it a top spot among Attackers. This Pokemon can systematically wipe entire enemy teams if unchecked.
Greninja ImageGreninja S Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
An attacker that struggles in the lane
Greninja is an Attacker that performs well in later stages of a match with its solid damage and mobility. The issue with this Pokemon is its lackluster early game. As of now, Greninja is the only Attacker that struggles in the early game and often needs the jungle to get a good start.
Alolan Ninetales ImageAlolan Ninetales S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Perfectly balanced control and damage
Alolan Ninetales offers amazing crowd control and AoE damage with its powerful moves and passive ability. This Pokemon is an extremely deadly Attacker that can hold enemies in place for its allies to attack, or nuke them to oblivion with its Unite Move, Snow Globe. The only thing holding Alolan Ninetales back from reaching SS Tier is its extremely fragile HP pool.

A Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Cinderace ImageCinderace A Rank Icon Top/Bot
Single target destroyer
Cinderace is great Attacker in the current roster because of its incredibly high single target damage and long range. This Pokemon also has a surprisingly decent amount of mobiity, allowing it to be elusive while sniping key targets from afar. Cinderace's only issue is that its early game is very weak and needs a lot of farming to quickly rush its evolutions.

B Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Venusaur ImageVenusaur B Rank Icon Top/Bot
Amazing early game; mediocre late game
Venusaur's versatile kit make it one of the best early game Attackers in the current roster. Unfortunately, this Pokemon suffers from a steep fall-off at the later stages of the game — A time where Attackers are needed the most.
Gardevoir ImageGardevoir B Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
A late bloomer with devastating potential
Gardevoir may take a while to go online, but the power spike it receives at level six does wonders for the team's offensive potential. This Pokemon excels at zoning enemies out in team fights with powerful AoE moves that deal insanely high damage to anyone they hit. It's Unite Move is one of the best in the game because of how synergistic it is with other Pokemon moves, further improving the team's chances of winning fights and skirmishes.

Roster Tier List and Evaluations

Tier List Criteria

Full Criteria

Power Level Team Impact Ease-of-Use Rank Usage

Each of these factors determine the Pokemon's place within the tier list. Read on to learn what they refer to exactly:

  • Power Level: Determines how strong a Pokemon is in theory (when its potential is realized; optimized itemization and playstyle).
  • Team Impact: Determines how instrumental a Pokemon is from a team's perspective. What does the Pokemon bring to the table and how effective is this to achieve victory?
  • Ease-Of-Use: When two things perform at roughly the same power level, the one that's easier to use is always better. We always have to consider the amount of effort it takes to play certain Pokemon into account.
  • Rank Usage: We kept a close eye on a Pokemon's performance in high rank matches to get a better glimpse at its overall potential in certain high-level match ups and scenarios.

      Hi! We appreciate your questions.
      1. We recommend Muscle Band, Focus Band, Scope Lens, and Buddy Barrier. We based our recommendation around winning team fights in order to secure objectives like Drednaw, Zapdos, and scoring points.
      2. We've updated all builds to the current version (
      3. We try to make builds that are useful in a variety of situations. Niche builds are only viable under very specific conditions or team compositions so you'll seldom ever use them
