PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Confusion + Psyshock and Bulldoze or Payback

Confusion takes advantage of STAB to significantly out-damage Feint Attack, though the latter could be used in very niche cases. 

The July 2019 move rebalance update gave Bronzong the addition of Psyshock, which is now its cheapest charge move energy-wise. While additional Psychic-type damage might be a bit redundant due to the high damage output from Confusion, the unspectacular energy generation makes low energy charge moves much needed in order to apply shield pressure.

Flash Cannon and Heavy Slam give very similar results despite differences in energy cost and damage, though Steel typing offensively isn't particularly valuable. The choice to use Bulldoze over the Steel-type moves leads to a greater win ratio against common meta picks, as Ground-type coverage is more meaningful due to the prevalence of steel tanks like Bastiodon. Payback is generally not as favorable to use, but can be significant in formats where other Psychic-types (including the Bronzong mirror) are more common. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 3.5 / 5

Bronzong is a solid Pokemon in every sense of the term. It has good typing, good stats, and a good moveset, which combine to make it a very powerful Pokémon in its own right. Bronzong's laundry list of resistances allows it to come in on some otherwise threatening Pokemon, and its good stat distribution and move options let it beat down Pokemon that would otherwise threaten its team. Playing Bronzong to its strengths and making sure that other team-members need those strengths are the keys to success with Bronzong. Just make sure that its weaknesses are covered too! 

Ultra League: 4 / 5

The level 50 update provides an enormous performance boost for Bronzong in Ultra League, enabling it to reach the 2500 CP cap and increasing its stats and wins across various matchups. The abundance of resistances from the Steel typing with Psychic typing to negate the weakness to Fighting-types is a great combination for Bronzong. Losses against Giratina and Registeel suggests Bronzong to favor playing in the Premier Cup rather than open Ultra League. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Bronzong has no real utility in the Master League.
