Best Dragalge Pokemon Go PvP moveset

The best Dragalge PvP moveset is Dragon Tail as a Fast Move combined with Outrage and Aqua Tail as Charged Moves.

Dragon Tail has one of the highest damage outputs of all PvP Fast Moves and it also gets STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) when used by Dragalge. If shields are up, Dragalge can beat many Pokemon with Dragon Tail alone.

Aqua Tail is good for baiting shields, while Outrage should be reserved for the end of the battle when there are no more shields left to use. We recommend building a Dragalge mainly for the Ultra League, giving this format priority over the Great League.

Is Dragalge good in Pokemon Go PvE?

No, Dragalge is not good in Pokemon Go PvE.

Its Attack stat of 177 is too low to make much of an impact in Raids or Gym battles. However, if a Raid Battle has more than 10 players in the lobby, you can give Dragalge a shot once your other counters have fainted.

If you’re still looking to use Dragalge in Pokemon Go PvE to flex a rare species, you can go with Dragon Tail as a fast move paired with Outrage as a Charged Move.

We still recommend using other Dragon-type Pokemon such as Mega Rayquaza, Mega Salamence, Haxorus, Garchomp, and Dialga.
