PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Infestation + Body Slam and Gunk Shot or Seed Bomb

Infestation offers fast energy generation, though its damage output is rather lackluster. 

Body Slam costs the least amount of energy, sports good damage value, and can be used frequently. Seed Bomb costs 5 energy more and can provide useful Grass-type coverage, but its damage output is somewhat unimpressive. Acid Spray is not recommended due to its more expensive 50 energy cost, though its utility could still be viable during switches. Gunk Shot hits very hard with STAB, though it demands huge amounts of energy to use.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1.5 / 5

Garbodor is an oddball in PvP, with average bulk, and a horrific odor that might pack more of a punch than its unusual moveset. Access to good energy generation and spammable Body Slam gives Garbodor numerous opportunities to pressure shields, and the potential to hit for big damage in the form of a trash can (AKA Gunk Shot) is downright disrespectful. Unfortunately lacking STAB on both of its fast moves and Body Slam causes Garbodor to be somewhat lackluster in damage output, with various matchups lost if Gunk Shot is shielded. A possible moveset rebalance in the future might enable Garbodor to challenge more of the meta, but for now it's probably better being in the trash can. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Garbodor has a max CP of 2345, which is somewhat inadequate for Ultra League. What holds Garbodor back primarily is its irrelevant moveset, which doesn't threaten much of the meta other than Grass and Fairy-types. Overall a niche pick at best, and not really worth bringing out of the trash bin. 

Master League: 0 / 5

It's probably not a good idea to make dragons mad by throwing a trash can at them.
