Welcome back, Trainers! It's time to see how Terrakion will likely perform in Pokémon GO.
CATEGORY: Cavern Pokémon
TYPE: Rock / Fighting
HEIGHT: 6' 03"
WEIGHT: 573.2 lbs.
MAX CP: 3698
PLACE IN THE META: Terrakion might be useful in Pokémon GO. Unlike Cobalion and Virizion, it has a respectable Attack stat for a Legendary Pokémon. While it still has a major (but rectifiable) problem with Fighting-type moves, it might be able to be redeemed as a Rock-type attacker. While it will have stiff competition from Rampardos, Tyranitar, Archeops, and Rhyperior, it could find some room alongside them on the Rock-type throne.
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 Terrakion:
Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Terrakion:
Should Niantic add any new moves, the following are good candidates for Terrakion's movepool:
LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 5, Terrakion gains no evolution, exclusive Z-Move, or Mega Evolution that is known of at this time.
Thanks for reading, Trainers! Virizion is up next.
