PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Confusion + Thunderbolt and Psychic Fangs

Confusion is superior to Tackle in both damage output and energy generation. Double Kick offers more energy generation, but lacks STAB and synergy with Girafarig's other moves. 

Psychic Fangs is recommended for its low energy cost, helping to bait shields while also applying a debuff to ramp up Confusion damage. Thunderbolt is Girafarig's best secondary move option, providing alternative coverage. Psychic is Girafarig's strongest Charge Move, but its energy cost is discouraging. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2 / 5 

Girafarig does poorly in PvP, despite having a very interesting typing. An offensive stat distribution results in low durability, while Girafarig's slow move pool leaves a lot to be desired. The addition of Psychic Fangs following the September 2022 update gives Girafarig a smoother gameplay, letting it bait shields potentially while also applying a debuff to ramp up the damage from Confusion. However Girafarig is still fragile and vulnerable to Dark-type Pokemon, and is generally still walled by common Steel Pokemon as well. Overall a very interesting consideration, but this Giraffe won't be standing very tall in battle. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

If Girafarig couldn't compete in Great League, it definitely won't do well in Ultra League. A max CP of 2046 doesn't help either. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Girafarig might be 1.5m tall, but it's not 4.5m Kyogre tall, or 5.4m Dialga tall, or 6.9m Giratina-O tall.
