We’ve got you covered as here’s everything you need to know about Talonflame in Pokemon Go.

How to get Talonflame in Pokemon Go

Can Talonflame be shiny in Pokemon Go?

Yes, shiny Talonflame is available in Pokemon Go, and it can be obtained by evolving a shiny Fletching all the way.

Best PvP moveset for Talonflame in Pokemon Go

The best PvP moveset for Talonflame in Pokemon Go is Incinerate combined with Flame Charge and Brave Bird.

Incinerate is one of the strongest Fast Moves in the game with 4.00 DPT (Damage Per Turn) ensuring great damage output and the equally balanced 4.00 EPT (Energy Per Turn) giving neat energy gains.

Despite the cooldown of 2.50s, Incinerate helps Talonflame get to Flame Charge pretty quickly. What makes this Fire-type Charged Move so deadly is its guaranteed boost to the Attack stat, turning Talonflame into a wrecking ball, even if the move is shielded by the opponent.

Brave Bird is arguably the scariest Charged Move in the game, boasting a whopping 130 damage for just 55 energy. That said, it severely debuffs Talonflame’s Defense, so keep this move to the endgame when all shields are down.

You should know that Talonflame is one of the best picks for the Ultra League.

Best PvE moveset for Talonflame in Pokemon Go

The best PvE moveset for Talonflame is Peck paired with Fly.

While Talonflame is a dominating force in PvP, it isn’t as viable for Raids, as there are better Fire and Flying-type options available.

But, if you’re still eager to give it a try, better go with the Flying-type combo of Peck and Fly for decent PvE dame figures.
