PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Poison Jab Or Sucker Punch + Grass Knot and Dark Pulse 

Poison Jab has superior stats compared to Sucker Punch, but the differences are minor and their typing coverage would be more of a priority for consideration. 

Grass Knot and Dark Pulse are recommended for their moderate energy cost and dual STAB coverage options. Dynamic Punch can be used if you really need that Fighting coverage, and Payback is generally just worse than Dark Pulse due to its higher energy cost.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1 / 5

Cacturne is more-or-less a worse Shiftry in the Great League, and it sadly has no real utility in the tier.

Ultra League: 1.5 / 5

Still not a good Pokemon, Cacturne at least has a few notable wins in the Ultra League. However, everything that it does can be done better by other Pokemon.

Master League: 0 / 5

Cacturne is entirely outclassed in the Master League.
