Battle Strategy

Galarian Moltres ImageGalarian Moltres Lv. 70

Galarian Moltres can use Fiery Wrath, which is super effective against most Psychic and Ghost-type Hypnosis users, and Hurricane, which is super effective against most Spore or Sleep Powder users. Malamar can be a good choice as it takes neutral damage from Fiery Wrath.

Basic Information

A Dark/Flying Type

Galarian Moltres 1.jpg

Unlike its predecessor, Moltres loses the Molten in its name to become a Dark/Flying type like Yveltal. It seems to have some Fire-type aspects in its move Fiery Wrath, so it's possible that it will still learn some Fire-type moves as well.

Fiery Wrath

Galarian Moltres 3.jpg

Galarian Moltres's signature move Fiery Wrath is a Special Dark-type move that has the ability to make the foe flinch. The Pokemon may have high Speed to match this move's effect well and make it useful competitively.

Obtainable in the Crown Tundra DLC

The Crown Tundra Expansion.png

Like its brethren Galarian Articuno and Galarian Zapdos, Galarian Moltres is available in The Crown Tundra DLC.
