Attacker Guide: How to Play Attackers

SS Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Greninja ImageGreninja S Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
Juke Supreme
Greninja is an Attacker that performs well in later stages of a match with its solid damage and mobility. The clones produced by Double Team also makes it a powerful juker especially since auto-attacks target the clones first before Greninja!
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 spot among great Attackers. This Pokemon can systematically wipe entire enemy teams if unchecked. It's UNITE move charge rate buff in Version makes it a really good late-game AoE damage dealer!

S Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Alolan Ninetales ImageAlolan Ninetales S Rank Icon Top/Bot
CC, Support, and Damage
The buff Alolan Ninetales received in Version gave it a mobility and initiate option with Aurora Veil. This enables it to go in battle, dish out CC and damage, all while buffing its own teammates (and itself) inside the Aurora Veil area of effect.
Cinderace ImageCinderace S 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.
Delphox ImageDelphox S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Fight with Fire
With its hard-hitting and spammable moves, Delphox is a great Attacker for any team to have. Its capcity to both deal massive damage and disrupt the enemy team in a variety of ways makes it a dangerous Pokemon to fight against. Coupled that with its fast charging UNITE Move, and you have an Attacker that can alter the playing field to your team's favor.
Espeon ImageEspeon S Rank Icon Bot
Reliable Burst Damage
Espeon's kit provides anyone who uses it with a reliable mix of burst damage and tenacity, thanks to its unique passive Magic Bounce that allows Espeon to negate a hit that will otherwise cause hindrances. It is also fairly easy and straight forward to use so anyone can pick it up! It lacks some mobility options though which can sometimes spell its doom especially against Speedsters.
Gardevoir ImageGardevoir S Rank Icon Jungle/Top
A late bloomer in a fast-paced battle
Patch increased Gardevoir's playability by making its early game scaling faster. When you manage to hit the right beats and reach higher levels, Gardevoir excels at zoning enemies out in team fights with powerful AoE moves that deal insanely high damage to anyone they hit.
Venusaur ImageVenusaur S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Amazing Skill Synergy
Venusaur's versatile kit makes it one of the most dependable Attackers in the game. Notably, the synergy between Petal Dance and Giga Drain just makes it an unkillable, self-healing machine!

A Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Decidueye ImageDecidueye A Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
It's Raining Arrows
Decidueye's long-range prowess is currently unmatched by any other Attacker on the roster. Its ability to pressure opponents with a fully charged Spirit Shackle makes Decidueye a dependable sniper for teams that can give it the opportunities needed to get clear shots. Although its lack of mobility hinders it tremendously, proper positioning and awareness are still the way to go if you want to make the most out of this Pokemon's high-damaging capabilities.
Duraludon ImageDuraludon A Rank Icon Bot
Massive Offense
Duraludon proved to be a long-range powerhouse that boasts high burst damage in a large AoE. Add in its really great zoning capabilities with Stealth Rock and you can further enhance it's sniping capabilities! Stealth Rock is also very unique and can catch opponents off-guard. Duraludon is definitely a must play for a highly offensive Attacker playstyle!
Sylveon ImageSylveon A Rank Icon Top/Bot
A Mobile Turret
Sylveon is a great Attacker that has a perfect mix between offense and defense. It can continuously deal damage onto an enemy while at the same time keeping itself topped up using lifesteal and defensive abilities. It can hop in and out of battle while dealing damage with the use of Mystical Fire, making it a hard Pokemon to catch.

B Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Cramorant ImageCramorant B Rank Icon Top/Bot
Surf's Up!
The latest nerf that Cramorant received is enough to make it fall on the tier list. Although its disabling capabilities with Surf and Whirlpool are still reliable, Dive and Air Slash became the premiere moveset for Pokemon because of the higher carry potential. However, Cramorant's skill ceiling increased significantly, making it a hard Attacker to play.

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.
