Clodsire Pokemon Go PvP performance

Yes, Clodsire is good in PvP, especially in the Great League. It has amazing stats (127 Att./151 Def/277 Sta) and great type advantages. Its moveset makes it more versatile than spammers like Swampert and Steelix.

Clodsire also comes to bring an end to the reign of terror of Spark spamming Lanturn. Its moveset with Stone Edge as a Charged Move and Poison Sting as a Fast Move makes it really good against certain preferred types for this league.

Best Clodsire Pokemon Go PvP moveset

Clodsire’s best moveset for PvP in Pokemon Go is Mud Shot as Fast Move and Sludge Bomb as Charged Move. It’s a solid counter for spammers like Steelix and even Swampert, though the latter will resist both moves. It is a strong threat against Registeel, Bastiodon, Carbink, and, of course, Lanturn.

A variation of this also involves using Stone Edge as a Charged Move or Megahorn (its legacy move), but they are too situational, and though the first requires low energy, it is not as damaging as Sludge Bomb.

Clodsire Pokemon Go PvE performance

Clodsire‘s performance in Pokemon Go PvE is subpar, considering its low Max CP of 2207. Its stats make it really resilient but do not expect too much Total Damage Output (TDO) from its several combos.

There are better Ground-type options if you want to go into Raids. But if you are hellbent on using it for PvE and trying it for yourself, here’s its best moveset.
