Welcome back, Trainers! It's time to see how Virizion will likely perform in Pokémon GO.
CATEGORY: Grassland Pokémon
TYPE: Grass / Fighting
HEIGHT: 6' 07"
WEIGHT: 440.9 lbs.
MAX CP: 3022
PLACE IN THE META: Virizion is not going to be useful in Pokémon GO. It has a problem with Fighting-type moves, as we outlined in our Cobalion Preview earlier. It also has a problem in the Grass-type department, since it cannot learn a Grass-type Fast Attack outside of a fortunate Grass-type Hidden Power. Those, combined with Virizion's poor stats and major weakness to Flying, has sealed this Pokémon's fate.
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 Virizion:
Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Virizion:
Should Niantic add any new moves, the following are good candidates for Virizion's movepool:
LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 5, Virizion gains no evolution, exclusive Z-Move, or Mega Evolution that is known of at this time.
Thanks for reading, Trainers! Tornadus is up next.
