PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Snarl + Sky Attack and Dark Pulse

Snarl is recommended for its very fast energy generation, which lets it utilize its strong charge moves much sooner. 

Sky Attack is a strong charge move that is efficient on energy and also benefits from STAB. Dark Pulse is Honchkrow's second best move, and a powerful hit on the Steel-types that resist Sky Attack.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2 / 5

Honchkrow is a very fragile and offensive-oriented Pokemon, with one of the poorest bulk ratings among competitive picks in this league. Honchkrow somewhat makes up for this major liability by threatening huge damage from its strong STAB charge moves, which it can access very quickly thanks to its fast energy generation. Unfortunately its reliance on shields for survival in addition to its inability to endure prolonged battles results in a poor rating. 

Ultra League: 3 / 5

At first glance, Honchkrow's Dark typing may seem valuable in a Giratina-centric meta, and wins against the Origin Forme may support that claim. However, its poor bulk results in losses against not only the Altered Forme, but certain bulky Psychic-type Pokemon, which sets Honchkrow back when considering the Dark-type role. The combination of Snarl and Dark Pulse can still deal big damage to another huge threat such as Registeel, though, which has a much easier matchup against other Flying-types.

Master League: 1 / 5

Honchkrow has a max CP of 2711, which is inadequate for Master League, despite its strong moveset.
