PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Mud Shot + Earthquake and Fire Punch

Mud Shot features superior energy generation, letting Diggersby access its charge moves sooner. Quick Attack falls behind in energy gains and offers stronger Normal-type damage, but this is neutral at best and can't be Super Effective vs anything, making it generally inferior. 

Earthquake costs a lot of energy, but benefits from STAB and provides powerful Ground-type coverage. Fire Punch is recommended for its cheaper energy cost, allowing better shield-baiting and pressure, while also covering the weakness to Grass and Ice-type Pokemon. Hyper Beam can be used over Earthquake to to surprise and threaten Flying-type opponents, but it is expensive and weakens Diggersby's matchup against Ghost types. Dig is entirely outclassed by Earthquake.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 4 / 5

Thanks to its enormous bulk and unique type combination, Diggersby finds a role as a reliable corebreaker to various Ghost-, Poison- and Steel-type Pokemon. Common targets include Sableye, Trevenant, Nidoqueen, Galarian Stunfisk, and Bastiodon, and many teams feature a combination of these Pokemon. Access to Fire Punch lets Diggersby further stand out among other Ground-type Pokemon by providing it with a reliable way of denting Grass-type Pokemon, although it is often not enough to outright win the match up.

Diggersby's primary downsides are its very exploitable weaknesses and inability to threaten most Flying-type Pokemon. It struggles against metagame staples such as Swampert, Walrein, and Medicham, and is almost completely incapable of threatening Altaria or Mandibuzz.

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Diggersby has inadequate stats to compete outside of Great League.

Master League: 0 / 5

Diggersby isn't an Easter Bunny, but it would still give its opponents free wins.
