Welcome, Trainers. In this installment of Generation Preparation, we'll be taking a look at the Blast Pokémon, Magmortar.
CATEGORY: Blast Pokémon
HEIGHT: 5' 03"
WEIGHT: 149.9 lbs.
MAX CP: 2980
Magmortar is the evolved form of Magmar. In the main-series games, Magmar needs a Magmarizer to evolve into Magmortar. It's unknown if Niantic will add this item into Pokémon GO or not.
PLACE IN THE META: With the right moves, Magmortar will definitely be a fiery force in the metagame. It has greater Attack than Entei, with its overall stats quite comparable to Moltres. This makes Magmortar a bit of a glass cannon, but it should be able to deal quite a large amount of damage before its flames are put out. And, unlike Moltres, Magmortar does not have a double-weakness to Rock-type attacks o worry about.
Magmortar is a pure Fire-type. This means it is resistant to Grass-, Fire-, Bug-, Ice-, Fairy-, and Steel-type attacks, as well as weak to Ground-, Water-, and Rock-type attacks.
LIKELY MOVEPOOL: Out of the Fast Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Magmortar:
Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Magmortar:
Should Niantic add any new moves, the following are good candidates for Magmortar's movepool:
LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 4, Magmortar gains no evolution, exclusive Z-Move, or Mega Evolution.
Thanks for reading, Trainers!
