Pokemon GO: All the Moves, Ranked Best to Worst | Complete List

On iOS & Android: See which moves you’ll want with this complete list of Pokemon GO moves, ranked from best to worst.

PokemonGo23

Ever wanted a complete list of Pokemon GO moves, ranked to easily see which attacks are obviously the best of the bunch? Redditor Mitchram_Alpha had the same dream. They worked hard to compile a complete list to show off every move (currently) available in Pokemon GO with all the stats to see which stand head and shoulders over the rest.

This ranking is all based on DPS, or damage-per-second. That means the top-tiered moves dish out more damage per second than the lower rungs. Even if a particular special move features plenty of power, it might take too long to recharge to make it useful. That goes for normal moves too; sometimes speed counts, and the best moves have the highest DPS.
