Welcome back, Trainers! We'll be taking a look at the second member of the Lake Guardians, Mesprit, in this article.
CATEGORY: Emotion Pokémon
HEIGHT: 1' 00"
WEIGHT: 0.7 lbs.
MAX CP: 2825
PLACE IN THE META: Azelf is the Attack-focused member of the Lake Guardians, Uxie the Defense-focused member, and Mesprit is the balanced member. While it is nice to see some balanced stats, they just aren't high enough to be as good as they need to be. We don't see Mesprit getting much use in Pokémon GO. Mesprit is a pure Psychic-type. This makes it weak to Dark-, Bug-, and Ghost-type attacks, as well as resistant to Psychic- and Fighting-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 Mesprit:
Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Mesprit:
Should Niantic add any new moves, the following are good candidates for Mesprit's movepool:
LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 4, Mesprit gains no evolution, exclusive Z-Move, or Mega Evolution.
Thanks for reading, Trainers!
