PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Ice Fang + Avalanche and Overheat or Superpower

Ice Fang is the best fast move for Galarian Darmanitan, since Tackle is such a bad move. 

Avalanche deals massive damage with STAB, and only costs 5 more energy than Ice Punch, which deals significantly less damage. Superpower costs the least amount of energy, and provides wide coverage, though it is not recommended to bait shields with it due to its self-debuff. Overheat costs the most amount of energy, but can threaten considerable damage if unshielded. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1.5 / 5

Galarian Darmanitan sports a mono-Ice typing, and extremely poor bulk. However, it also sports some of the highest offensive stats compared to the Great League meta, which suggests that any of its charge moves that are unshielded could possibly OHKO unsuspecting opponents. Access to poor energy generation makes it difficult to access its incredibly powerful charge moves, which makes this snowman more of a one tricky pony at best. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Galarian Darmanitan features just as much risk in Ultra League as it did in Great League. Losses against most meta picks makes it difficult to use, relying on inconsistent farming opportunities against Dragon or Grass Pokemon in order to be played optimally. 

Master League: 0 / 5

A max CP of 3105 would suggest that Galarian Darmanitan would be at least somewhat viable in Master League, but the lack of energy generation from its fast move causes it to not access its strong charge moves, and consequently lose way more matchups. Hope for a moveset rebalance to take this snowman from zero to hero.
