Best Wugtrio Pokemon Go PvP moveset

Water Gun has balanced damage and energy per turn figures and also gets STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus). With a low cooldown of only 0.50s, it pairs well with Surf, which costs only 40 energy and helps Wugtrio bait shields.

Dig is its optimal secondary Charged Move that costs 10 more energy and gives it coverage against Steel Pokemon as well as Electric types that it’s weak against.

Best Wugtrio Pokemon Go PvE moveset

The best PvE moveset for Wugtrio in Pokemon Go is Water Gun with Surf.

Taking advantage of STAB damage, Wugtrio can do significant damage against Fire, Ground, and Rock-type Raid bosses with this moveset.

Is Wugtrio good in Pokemon Go?

Yes, Wugtrio is decent in Pokemon Go, but there are better options both in the Go Battle League and Raids.

In PvP, its Attack is too low for the Master League, and its average bulk doesn’t make it click in the Great or Ultra League either.

It has a better showing in PvE, where you can use it when you rejoin a Raid lobby, but its DPS (Damage Per Second) figures are lower than other Water types.
