Welcome back, Trainers! It's time to see what Maractus will be like in Pokémon GO.
CATEGORY: Cactus Pokémon
HEIGHT: 3' 03"
WEIGHT: 61.7 lbs.
MAX CP: 2274
PLACE IN THE META: Cacturne has never been a great Pokémon in Pokémon GO, and Maractus won't redeem the cactus Pokémon.

Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Maractus:

LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 5, Maractus gains no evolution, exclusive Z-Move, or Mega Evolution that is known of at this time.
Thanks for reading, Trainers! Dwebble and Crustle are up next.
