PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Water Gun + Aqua Tail

Water Gun is a good all-round move that benefits from STAB and is easy to use with a fast animation. Tackle has no use. 

Aqua Tail is the main charge move, and probably the only one needed, given Basculin's lack of coverage options. Aqua Jet is a terrible move and inferior in damage, energy, and DPE. Muddy Water deals pathetic damage, and only has a 30% chance to debuff the opponent, making this move unreliable.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 0 / 5

Basculin is basically just worse than Vaporeon or Qwilfish, with the same Water Gun + Aqua Tail combo but a complete lack of any viable secondary charge move. Its poor bulk also makes it very fragile. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Basculin lacks stats for PvP outside of Great League.

Master League: 0 / 5

Kyogre.
