Score Explanation

Select a defending Pokemon from the dropdown menu. Possible attacking Pokemon to use are shown in two tables. The first table shows the 30 best Pokemon to attack with. The second table shows the 10 worst. Pokemon are rated best to worst using the “Score”. The score factors in both how hard your attacker will hit the defender and how hard they will hit back.

Score = Atk + Def

The Atk score is driven by the Pokemon's base Atk Power listed in Pokemon Stats. This base power is then scaled up by a weighted attack scalar:

Atk = Base Pokemon Atk * [(4 * Move 1 Scalar) + (Move 2 Scalar)]

The scalars for Move 1 and Move 2 start at one and increase with Stab (Same type attack bonus) and vary further based on the Pokemon Go type table and the type advantage/disadvantage between the Pokemon and defender. The Fast move is weighted more heavily to account for its higher use.

Def = Base Pokemon Def * ( 1.57 - Expected Pokemon Defence Scalar)

The defence score is the Pokemon's base defence score scaled by the inverse of a Defence scalar that ranges between 0 and 1.57. This scalar is calculated by taking all the known moves of the defending Pokemon and comparing them to each Pokemon's Type Chart. The less likely the attacking Pokemon is to be damaged by the defender, the higher their Def score will be.

12


These boxes show the DPS of the associated moves. If the number is in bold it has had STAB applied. The latest formula for calculating DPS can be found on the Move List.

No allowances for HP or CP have been made. The tool operates only on types and their relationships. Type weaknesses calculated from the known type table in Pokemon Go.

This table is a good approximation of the best Pokemon to use. As we learn more about the values and their relationships, the tool will be updated again.

Niantic has designed gyms to be difficult to defend to prevent players with more time, dominating players with less time. If you want to give your gym the best chance of being defended, check out Best Defenders.
