PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Double Kick + Brick Break* and Stone Edge or Close Combat

Double Kick is the best Fast Move for Hitmonlee, sporting excellent energy generation, while giving up damage output. Rock Smash sports average damage output, but its energy gains are pitiful, and Hitmonlee needs energy to pressure shields. Low Kick is one of the worst Fast Moves in the game. 

Brick Break is a move limited to Elite TMs, which is very unfortunate, because this is the cheapest Charge Move option available for baiting shields and dealing chip damage. Stone Edge provides coverage, which is particularly useful against Flying-type Pokemon. Close Combat is also an option due to its massive damage threat, but its harsh self-debuff can be difficult to work with. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1.5 / 5

Hitmonlee doesn't have the stat-build or moveset needed to succeed in the Great League, especially with a number of powerful Psychic types running around. It's capable of functioning if you're desperate for a fighting type or you're playing some form of limited format, but generally speaking it's just overshadowed as a Fighting type.

Ultra League: 0 / 5

The same story as Great League, but outclassed to an even greater degree.

Master League: 0 / 5

The same story as Ultra League, but outclassed even farther than that.
