Absol ImageAbsol S Rank Icon Jungle
The King of Critical Hits
Absol has the ability to tear through unsuspecting enemies with high burst damage. Critical hits from this Pokemon can reach levels of absurdity that even tanks can't withstand. The only thing holding this Pokemon back is its reliance to take targets out as soon as possible — failure to kill them quickly often leads to death.

A Tier Speedsters

Gengar ImageGengar A Rank Icon Jungle
Insane Burst Damage and Mobility
Gengar may take more time than most Speedsters to go online, but the wait is always worth it because of its incredible power spike at level seven. Once Gengar unlocks Hex, it becomes an unstoppable ganking machine that can strike from almost anywhere. Combine that with its healing mechanic, and you got yourself a deadly Speedster!
Talonflame ImageTalonflame A Rank Icon Jungle
High Mobility with Solid Burst Damage
Talonflame is a solid Speedster with incredibly high mobility and solid burst damage. Its access to moves such as Fly and Brave Bird allows it to traverse vast distances and inflict heavy damage in the blink of an eye. Additionally, its ability to sustain with heals through Aerial Ace gives it more survivability when it gets to chain attacks and as a jungler.

B Tier Speedsters

Zeraora ImageZeraora B Rank Icon Jungle/Bot
A Perfect balance of Speed and Power
Zeraora's incredible speed and damage burst makes it capable of shredding opponents in quick succession. Compared to other Speedsters in the roster, however, Zeraora lacks burst capabilities while having long cooldowns for its moves. This forces you to make more involved plays that will most likely result into a blunder when Zeraora misses its target.

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.
