"Dewgong loves to snooze on bitterly cold ice. The sight of this Pokémon sleeping on a glacier was mistakenly thought to be a mermaid by a mariner long ago."
PVP Mode Explanatory Notes
PvP Moveset Explanation
Ice Shard is Dewgong's best fast move due to its superior energy gains, however this is a legacy move. Frost Breath and Iron Tail both offer poor energy generation, though the former takes advantage of STAB to provide respectable damage output.
The update to legacy Icy Wind following the December 2019 rebalance makes it mandatory for optimal use of Dewgong, partly due to its lesser energy cost, and partly due to its guaranteed debuff on the opponent. Starting in June 1 2023, Dewgong gained access to Drill Run, granting it near perfect coverage. Liquidation is a great move too, but Drill Run + Icy Wind is often all the coverage that Dewgong needs.
Using other charge moves like Water Pulse, Aurora Beam or Blizzard are direct downgrades due to their lack of utility and higher energy costs. If you don't have the double legacy moveset for Dewgong, maybe consider other Pokemon instead.
PvP Rating Explanation
Dewgong is infamous for its ability to slow down games due to the combination of its high bulk and access to Icy Wind. Historically, Dewgong competed for a spot on teams against more aggressive Ice/Waters such as Walrein and Lapras. However, the Season of Hidden Gems gave it access to Drill Run, allowing it to be a much more threatening generalist. Expect to see Dewgong quite a bit now that it has play against Registeel and Bastiodon. Beware of Counter users such as Medicham and Deoxys-D.
Dewgong lacks adequate stats for Ultra League, maxing out at only 1985 CP. While its Ice-type moveset and utility is quite valuable in a meta with very ubiquitous Dragon-types, that's unfortunately the only niche it has going for it.
Dewgong's CP is too low for Master League.
