PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Zygarde 50% is best using its Dragon Type moveset,¬†Dragon Tail¬†and¬†Outrage.
  • Earthquake¬†could be good, but Zygarde's lack of a Ground Type Fast Move leaves it lacking.
  • Bite¬†and¬†Crunch¬†at least have the advantage of being the same type.
  • Zen Headbutt, Hyper Beam,¬†and¬†Bulldoze¬†are all worth TMing away.

PVE Overview

While an overall step forward from its 10% forme, Zygarde's 50% forme is basically just Garchomp, but worse. It's pretty bulky, but it actually loses a little bit of Attack on forme-change, which it really couldn't afford. Despite the fact that Zygarde's 50% forme is arguably the most iconic version of this powerful Legendary Pokemon, it's still not really worth utilizing in raids over its contemporaries. 

It's also worth mentioning that Zygarde and its various formes have more Signature Moves than any other Pokemon in the series. Land's Wrath, Thousand, Arrows, and Thousand Waves are all Ground Type moves, while Core Enforcer is Dragon Type. This means that Zygarde has massive potential in the future, especially if Niantic makes any of its various Ground Type Signature Moves into a good Fast Move.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Dragon Tail + Crunch and Earthquake

Dragon Tail is an excellent Fast Attack, boasting incredible damage and average energy generation. Zen Headbutt and Bite are both very underwhelming.

Crunch is Zygarde's cheapest Charged Attack and offers some coverage and a nasty 30% debuff chance. Earthquake is expensive, but is important to give Zygarde coverage against Steel- and Fairy-type Pokemon and benefits from STAB. Outrage is a powerful Charged Attack, but Zygarde struggles to find a moveslot for it. Hyper Beam is Zygarde's only option to avoid getting walled entirely by Togekiss, but is far too expensive for any practical use. Bulldoze is slightly cheaper than Earthquake and takes one less Dragon Tail to reach, but the steep drop in power makes it a largely outclassed option.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3 / 5

Zygarde-50% is a fairly bulky Pokemon - its stat product is comparable to Walrein's and can take a few hits. It does, however, suffer from a clunky moveset, so Zygarde-50% is usually outclassed by other Dragon-type choices such as Altaria and Dragonite. Still, it may find a use or two in certain cups.

Ultra League: 3 / 5

Zygarde-50% fares a bit better in the Ultra League, but not by much. The increased bulk in this league allows Zygarde-50% to reach Earthquake more consistently. Relatively slow moveset and competition with other Dragons such Giratina-A, Dragonite makes Zygarde a rather niche pick.

Master League: 3 / 5

Zygarde-50% actually has fairly respectable stats in the Master League, but even then it's a tad underwhelming. It does not have enough qualities that allow it to stand out from other Dragons, and can be seen as a weaker but bulkier Garchomp.
