Arbok is a Poison Pokémon which evolves from Ekans. It is vulnerable to Ground and Psychic moves. Arbok's strongest moveset is Acid & Gunk Shot and it has a Max CP of 1,921.
"This Pokémon is terrifically strong in order to constrict things with its body. It can even flatten steel oil drums. Once Arbok wraps its body around its foe, escaping its crushing embrace is impossible."
Dragon Tail sports the best energy generation and damage output among Arbok's fast moves. Bite offers strong Dark-type damage, but has the worst energy generation in the game. Acid is a bad move despite getting STAB, and is generally not recommended.
Dark Pulse costs a moderate amount of energy, and provides coverage that is not only relatively neutral against most Pokemon, but also covers Arbok's weakness to Psychic-types. Sludge Wave benefits from STAB to deal significant damage if unshielded, but costs a lot of energy. Gunk Shot takes it one step further in terms of energy cost and damage output, which is not appealing due to Arbok lacking high energy generation. Acid Spray offers niche plays for baiting shields, with inconsistency being the main drawback. Return could also be an option if Arbok is purified from its shadow variant, but lacks STAB and can't be Super Effective vs anything.
Arbok unfortunately doesn't have any real use in the meta. Poison-types generally don't perform well, and are mostly only favorable against Grass-types and Fairy-types, which only consist of a few Pokemon when considering the overall meta. The lack of a good fast move sets Arbok back in its role as a Poison-type (especially vs Fairy-types), and unimpressive stats and bulk aren't appealing either.
With a max CP of 1921, Arbok lacks sufficient stats for Ultra League.
You honestly think dragons are scared of Arbok in Master League?
