PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Pound + Dazzling Gleam and Hyper Beam

Pound and Zen Headbutt are two of the worst PvP fast moves in the entire game. Unexciting damage output combined with dreadful energy gains means you're gonna have to pick your poison. Pound gets STAB at least.

Dazzling Gleam performs better than Psychic for the same high 70 energy cost but offers slightly better coverage. Hyper Beam is known for being one of the slowest and hardest-hitting moves in the game, which also gets STAB with Chansey. 

While Psybeam is legacy, it is also one of the worst charge moves in the game, costing 60 energy and only returning an appalling 1.17 DPE (Damage Per Energy). 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1 / 5

When PvP was announced Chansey was immediately thought to be one of the best candidates for lower tier PvP thanks to its incredible bulk and coverage moves against its only weakness. Thankfully Niantic nerfed this pink demon to the ground by giving its moveset terrible PvP stats, limiting its viability to just gym defense. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Chansey has a maximum CP of 1255, which doesn't even reach the cap for Great League, let alone Ultra League. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Chansey has literally a 100% loss rate in Master League according to PvPoke. Unless you're facing a Weedle or something, but go do that in Great League.
