PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Snarl + Dark Pulse and X-Scissor or Focus Blast

Snarl is preferred for its high energy generation. Metal Claw is a below average fast move, though it offers more damage output and Steel-type coverage. 

Dark Pulse benefits from STAB, and offers relatively neutral Dark-type coverage. X-Scissor is mostly an option for baiting shields thanks to its low energy cost, though its damage output can add up in prolonged battles. Focus Blast can be chosen for its high damage threat and valuable Fighting-type coverage, but it demands a lot of energy to use. Iron Head isn't very impressive, and Steel-type attacks generally aren't useful against meta Pokemon, but Bisharp runs the risk of being walled by Fairy-types without its coverage. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 3 / 5

Bisharp sports a unique Dark/Steel typing, giving it a plethora of resistances while also leaving it doubly weak to Fighting-type attacks. A high ATK stat limits its overall bulk in this league, which makes Bisharp rather squishy compared to other Pokemon. The dilemma of choosing Steel-type coverage to threaten Fairy-types or just accept being walled entirely makes Bisharp more difficult to use and requires proper team building and planning ahead of time to see success. 

Ultra League: 3 / 5

Bisharp's Dark/Steel typing is useful in Ultra League, where Psychic and Ghost Pokemon are common. Its issues in Great League haven't changed in Ultra League, where its struggle with Fairy and Fighting-types continue. 

Master League: 0 / 5

With a max CP of 2844, Bisharp would appreciate more stats for Master League.
