Can Azumarill be shiny in Pokemon Go?

Yes, shiny Azumarill is available in Pokemon Go. Players can find shiny Azumarill directly in the wild or evolve it from a shiny Marill or Azurill.

That said, there will be an increased chance of hatching shiny Azurill during its Hatch Day event, making it the best time to grab shiny Azumarill in the game.

Is Azumarill good in Pokemon Go PvP?

Yes, Azumarill is excellent in Pokemon Go PvP and is one of the top species in the Great League format.

With an amazing type combination of Water/Fairy, Azumarill has an impressive offensive as well as a defensive presence in PvP. It completely walls Dragon and Fighting-type Pokemon and is also not weak to Steel-type attacks like other Fairy-type species.

But that’s not all as Azumarill’s massive HP stat of 225 helps it tank even super-effective attacks, making it a safe switch-in in almost all battles. So it functions equally well as a lead or a closer, and players can fit it into teams effortlessly.

Best Azumarill Pokemon Go PvP moveset

The best PvP moveset of Azumarill in Pokemon Go is Bubble as a Fast Move with Ice Beam and Hydro Pump as Charged Moves.

Bubble is a great Fast Move that provides fast energy generation with a nice 3.67 EPT (Energy Per Turn), helping it use its cheapest Charged Move Ice Beam and get wide coverage. It also helps Azumarill tackle Grass-types that it is weak against.

Hydro Pump costs the most energy but Azumarill’s high bulk and Bubble’s quick gains make it viable. Additionally, it also gives Azumarill an offensive advantage against Steel-types.

Players can also swap Hydro Pump with Play Rough to get an offensive advantage against other Azumarill.

Is Azumarill good in Pokemon Go PvE?

No, Azumarill is not good in Pokemon Go PvE.

It has an Attack stat of only 112, which is way lower than other common Water and Fairy Pokemon such as Kyogre, Greninja, Gardevoir, and Primarina.

Best Azumarill Pokemon Go PvE moveset

If you still want to use Azumarill in Pokemon Go PvE, you can go ahead with Bubble as a Fast Move along with Hydro Pump as a Charged Move.

While it shouldn’t be your top choice in Raids or Gym Battles, you can use it against Pokemon that are weak to Water-type attacks such as Fire, Ground, and Rock-types in the game.
