Attacker Guide: How to Play Attackers

SS Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Chandelure ImageChandelure S Rank Icon Top/Bot
High Offense and Long Range
Chandelure's high offense, long range, and scaling makes it a great Attacker. It performs extrodinarily well during teamfights thanks to its high offense and highly-effective disabling moves. It can also take out objectives quite fast or steal them away from opponents. Although its lack of mobility and poor durability is its biggest weakness, it's nonetheless a viable damage dealerer.
Mega Mewtwo Y ImageMega Mewtwo Y S Rank Icon Any
The Most Complete Attacker
Mega Mewtwo Y in an Attacker with the most complete kit. It has strong ranged attacks with scalable damage and attack speed, and can get even stronger when it Mega evolves, making it a perfect attack-damage carry. Although it is fragile like most Attackers, its moves counteracts it, giving it utility tools that is lacking in most Attackers. Furthermore, it's incredibly easy to use and master as its kit is straightforward and doesn't require special mechanical skills to pull off.
Pikachu ImagePikachu S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Damage and Lockdown
Pikachu's insane damage and ability to lock enemies down with Stuns earn it a spot among great Attackers. This Pokemon can wipe entire enemy teams with its AoE moves if left unchecked. Its high damage and low-cooldown moves plus the fact that it's argubly the easiest Pokemon to play as makes it a great pick for all skill levels!
Venusaur ImageVenusaur S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Versitile Damage Dealer
Venusaur's versatile kit makes it one of the most dependable Attackers in the game. The Pokemon can be a frontline tank or a backline damage dealer, depending which combination of moves you are going for, but either way you'll certainly deal massive damage. Although it does need a hand in the early game, once it has both of its moves, its power just goes up from that point on.

S Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Cinderace ImageCinderace S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Single-target Destroyer
Cinderace's strength comes from its high attack damage and rapid attak speed, making it the ultimate long-ranged, basic-attack Attacker. The Pokemon also has a surprisingly decent amount of mobility, 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 evolution. However, it does perform well as a jungler, which easily solves the problem.
Delphox ImageDelphox S Rank Icon Top/Bot
Teamfight Prowess
Delphox's kit is a combination of burst damage and lockdowns all while having long range and low cooldowns. This makes Delphox an excellent backline damage dealer and disabler. However, its greatest asset is its Unite Move, Fanciful Fireworks, which slows, deals damage overtime, and reduces healing of enemies caught within its large AoE, making it one of the most powerful and reliable teamfight move in the game. Delphox can do well enough on its own as an Attacker, but its impact during teamfights is the Pokemon's true strength.
Gardevoir ImageGardevoir S Rank Icon Jungle/Top
Physic Power
Gardevoir is an Sp. Atk. powerhouse that can decimate opponents in mere seconds with its long-ranged and high burst damage moves. Its Unite Move, Fairy Singularity, is argubly the best teamfight move in the game since it completely disables enemies caught within its AoE all while dealing decent damage. However, Gardevoir struggles during the early game as it doesn't have reliable tools for farming, which cripples its gameplay since it needs to level up fast to get its premiere moves.
Glaceon ImageGlaceon S Rank Icon Bot
Glacial Strength
Glaceon is an Sp. Atk. Attacker capable of gunning targets down and shredding through the toughest defenses with a barrage of ice projectiles. This makes it effective against high-durability Pokemon and enables it to take out boss Pokemon like Regieleki and Rayquaza by itself. Its passive ability, Snow Cloak, allows Glaceon to block stuns, which is extremely useful for an Attacker. But perhaps its greatest asset is its early-game scaling, reaching its power spike as early as level 4, and from that point on just gets stronger. However, Glaceon's moves require some proper setup to achieve the highest damage possible since they depend on the number of ice crystals generated, which leaves opponents a time window to take out Glaceon quickly.
Greninja ImageGreninja S Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
Assassination Expert
Greninja is an elusive Attacker that performs well in the later stages of a match with its solid damage and mobility. Its ninja-like playstlye via Double Team illusions or Smokescreen stealth and vision disruption gives it an advantage during fights and makes it an expert assassin. The Pokemon offers both range and melee options via Water Shuriken and Surf, respectively, and also though its Standard Attacks. However, realizing Greninja's power requires careful target selection, which means avoiding lunging at enemies without a clear advantage.
Inteleon ImageInteleon S Rank Icon Bot/Jungle
Ranged Critical-Hits
Inteleon is a unique Sp. Atk. Attacker. It relies more on critical-hits to take out its targets rather than mainly on its moves. It can either actively hunt down targets one by one with Liquidation or finish them off from long range using Snipe Shot. Its downside is its low durability, which is common for Attackers, and tedious early game. It also requires top-notch skills to play effectively. Nonetheless, the Pokemon is certainly formidable in the late game.
Sylveon ImageSylveon S Rank Icon Top/Bot
A Mobile Turret
Sylveon has a great mix of offense, defense, and mobility. It can continuously deal damage while simultaneously further increasing its damage output and keeping itself protected through HP recovery and defensive moves thanks to its Pixilate ability. It also has a reliable mobility option through Mystical Fire, making it hard to catch. Moreover, it scales up early in the game, reaching its first power spike only at level 4. However, Sylveon needs to survive longer than most Attackers to deal its intended damage since it does not have burst damage, which is something that Attackers struggle on.

A Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Decidueye ImageDecidueye A Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
Deadly as an Arrow
Decidueye's basic attack damage is on par with other prominent Attackers. But its advantage over them is its ability to attack multiple targets at once using Razor Leaf, making it a little deadlier compared to others. It also has the option to deal burst damage from the backlines instead thanks to Spirit Shackle. However, its biggest drawback is its lack of mobility, making it more likely to be targeted first. But proper positioning and awareness can remedy its weakness and unlock its potential.
Dragapult ImageDragapult A Rank Icon Jungle
Stealth Hunter
Dragapult's unique mechanics give it a certain advantage over other Attackers. It's the first Attacker that can deal area damage with its Boosted Attacks and has a charge-based Unite Move. Its kit gives it stealth and gradual stat increase options via Phantom Force, or teamfight and mobility through Dragon Dance, but both give a massive attack speed boost, making it a deadly single-target damage dealer either way. However, it lacks a reliable farming tool, making leveling up harder compared to other Attackers, especially in the early game. This is a huge burden on a Pokemon that's built as a late-game damage dealer.
Duraludon ImageDuraludon A Rank Icon Bot
Massive Offense
Duraludon has various tools in its arsenal. It can turn itself into a long-ranged turret with high damage output using Flash Cannon or a an AoE burst damage caster with Dragon Pulse. These playstyles can be supplemented with either a zoning or a low-key mobility tool through Stealth Rock or Dragon Tail, respectively. Moreover, its Unite Move, Revolving Ruin, covers a wide area around Duraludon, which keeps enemies inside it, making the Pokemon great at teamfights. However, its playstyles takes time to set up properly and requires safe positioning to achieve its intended damage, which opponents can exploit and take out Duraludon .
Mew ImageMew A Rank Icon Any
Pokemon of All Trades
Mew is an incredibly versitile Attacker that can adapt to any situation thanks to its Move Reset mechanic. It can provide burst damage using Solar Beam or Electro Ball but also a reliable crowd control disable with Surf. Additionally, it has zoning, mobility, and supporting capabilities through Light Screen, Agility, and Coaching, respectively, making it a jack of all trades. However, Mew's gameplay demands high mechanical skill and proper understanding of its mechanics to be played at its peak potential, which may be off-putting to some players. With its highly synergistic moves and great team fight prowess with Mystic Mirage, Mew is an essential Attacker for any team to have!

B Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Alolan Ninetales ImageAlolan Ninetales B Rank Icon Top/Bot
Veil of Power
Alolan Ninetales' kit is a great mix of damage and crowd control thanks to its freeze mechanic. It can also support its allies using Aurora Veil in exchange for raw damage. However, Alolan Ninetales leans more towards supporting its allies rather than a primary source of damage like other Attackers, which makes it hard for the Pokemon to stand on its own and requires its allies to follow through its initiation.
Espeon ImageEspeon B Rank Icon Bot
Reliable Burst Damage
Espeon is another Sp. Atk. Attacker with high burst damage and a reliable crowd control. It is also fairly straightforward to use, making it a great Pokemon for all players! However, it does lack mobility that dooms the Pokemon most of the time, especially against Speedsters. Moreover, compared to other eeveelutions, Espeon gets outclassed in all aspects by Sylveon and Glaceon.

C Tier Attackers

Pokemon Tier Best Lane
Cramorant ImageCramorant C Rank Icon Top/Bot
Surf's Up!
Cramorant is a decent Attacker that can pack a punch. It has moves like Hurricane that can hard disable targets, and Dive that gives it mobility. Although it kit offers plenty of utility and damage, they are somewhat lackluster compared to other Attackers that can do the same effects. However, it only needs good positioning to unlock Cramorant's true potential.

Full Criteria

Power Level Team Impact Ease-of-Use Role Effectivess

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) compared to other Pokemon within its role.
  • 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.
  • Role Effectiveness: Determines how well the Pokemon upholds its role and the expectations that come with it. We look at how its playstyle coincides with the fundamental aspects of the role the Pokemon has.
