About reviews ▼▲
How do you know which Pokemon are best for Trainer Battles? This question has numerous answers, and below we'll look at how we arrived at ours and how you can make the most of the rankings here.
As we improve our simulator and ranking algorithms, please note that exact rankings may change. They aren't set in stone, but rather an educated guess as to which Pokémon may or may not be good for Trainer Battles. Ultimately, we hope the ratings here will be a useful resource in their own way and help build you towards success.
Using pokemon ratings
In the top-level leaderboards, you'll see a score for each Pokémon. This score is an overall performance number from 0 to 100, where 100 is the best Pokémon in that league and category. It is derived by simulating all possible pairs, with each Pokémon's most used moveset (these can be adjusted manually). Use this score to compare overall performance between Pokémon; For example, the difference between the #1 and #50 Pokémon may not be the same as the difference between the #50 and #100 Pokémon. This score also allows you to see the parity across different leagues and categories.
Trainer battles feature a wide variety of scenarios, especially with shields. To give a more complete picture, our overall ratings are derived from additional sets of ratings, where battles are simulated with different roles in mind. You can explore rankings for each of the following categories:
- In general -Derived from a Pokémon's score in all other categories. Moves are ranked based on the calculations of all opponents. However, top counters and best combinations are taken from the Prospects category.
- directs -Simulated ranked battles with 2 shields against 2 shields.
- clasps -Non-Shield Mock Battle Ranking vs. no shield.
- switch -Simulated ranked battles with 6 turns of energy advantage and scored to favor safe matches.
- Loaders -Simulated ranked battles with 6 turns of energy advantage.
- Attackers -Mocked ranked battles without shields vs. 2 shields.
- Consistency -Rating of how dependent Pokémon are on bait shields.
Different Pokemon can succeed in different scenarios, so use these categories to help determine when a particular Pokemon would be most valuable.
Within each classification, you'll see four separate detail sections:
- Fast moves -What fast moves does the Pokémon use the most in the league and category.
- Loaded Moves -What Charged Moves does the Pokémon use the most in the league and category.
- Main wins -Which battles the Pokémon performs best in, weighted by the opponent's overall score.
- key counters -Which significant opponents perform best against the Pokemon.
Use them to see even more information about a Pokémon, what matches it can be useful in, and what can be used to counter it.
Using motion ratings
Each Pokémon has a Fast Moveset and a Charged Moveset. Some moves might be better in one battle and other moves might be better in another. For trainer battles, you'll want to know which moves will be best for most matches. You might also want to know which Pokemon are the best candidates for a second Charged Move. The move details within each Pokemon classification can help you determine this.
Moves are ranked using calculations based primarily on their damage and energy cost. Stat changes are also taken into account. These calculations are performed for each match and then summed across the entire format. Matchmaking weighting affects these numbers as well, so moves that would be used against significant meta targets will rank higher.
When looking for potential moves, keep an eye out for Pokemon that have a strong tendency towards a single fast move and a single charged move. These Pokemon will have their ideal moveset for most matches. On the other hand, some Pokemon see a more balanced use of their Charged moves. This is where a second charge move comes into play.
If you are investing in a loaded second move, you want a pair that is optimal in most combinations. Two moves that would be used in 90% of matches are better than two moves that would be used in 60% of matches. You also want a move that adds more value to these combinations. A second Charged move that is used 40% of games will give you more value than one used 5% of games.
However, not all clashes are created equal. When your opponent switches a Pokemon, it's not just random; they will most likely send something strong against you. Because of this, a Charged move that neutralizes your counters can be more valuable than the ratings indicate. Blastoise, for example, doesn't use Ice Beam very often in heads-up simulations (top-tier Grass-types like Meganium and Venusaur will take it out before it can). However, Ice Beam can still be valuable when your opponent sends these Pokemon out while Blastoise has Ice Beam nearly charged or fully charged, or if you have shields while they don't.
As an exercise, select any Pokémon in theteam building tooland compares your battle histograms when you have one move loaded and when you have two. If a second charged move improves your combinations, it might be worth investing.
Ratings are generated by following these steps:
- For each category:
- Simulate all possible combinations and assign a battle rating to each Pokémon.
- Calculate each Pokémon's average battle rating across all matches.
- Replay matches and weight each individual battle rating based on the opponent's average, averaging again each time. Repeat this process several times. Only do this if the combinations are the same (equal shields).
- Calculate a Pokémon's Tier Score as a percentage of its weighted average Battle Rank for the #1 Pokémon.
- For each Pokémon, calculate the geometric mean of their scores in each category to get the overall score.
Battle Rating is the core of the ranking algorithm. It tells us if a Pokemon wins a battle and by how much. The average of all these tells us which Pokémon performs best against most other Pokémon.
However, comparing only averages is not always best; you're not equally likely to face every Pokemon, and multiple weak Pokemon of a given type can skew the results in favor of your counters. Therefore, the algorithm repeats each match again and weights each battle rating by the opponent's average. Now, a good battle rating against a powerful Pokemon is worth more than a good battle rating against a weak one. This process is recursive; a Pokémon that has a low original average may have a better weighted average, which affects all Pokémon that rank well against it, so this process is performed multiple times to allow the best Pokémon and those that beat them to filter through the rankings. .
Overall scores are calculated using a geometric mean (root of A x B x C) as opposed to a regular mean (ratio of A + B + C). This is because category scores are percentages; adding these percentages doesn't produce a tangible value, so a geometric mean is more applicable. The geometric mean also favors complete Pokémon over Pokémon that rank high in one category but rank low in others.
Each Pokémon gets its ideal moveset for each match. Keep in mind that this can cause Pokemon with wide moves like Mew or Suicune with hidden power to rank higher than they should; this is already adjusted in general rankings, but may appear in Team Builder.

The higher the CP, the lower level the Pokémon must be in order to stay under the 1500 CP cap.
