PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Dragon Breath + Outrage and Octazooka

Ever since PvP came out Dragon Breath has become one of the most popular fast moves due to its high damage output (4.0 DPT), and Kingdra benefits from it. Outrage is almost always preferred on Kingdra due to the cheaper energy cost compared to Hydro Pump and Blizzard, and the vastly unresisted damage. The most recent addition, Octazooka, is a staple as Kingdra's cheaper charged move (50 Energy against Outrage's 60) and the amazing 50% chance to debuff opponents' Attack stat by 2 stages at each use! That pairs perfectly with the aggressive fast move damage, which can easily overwhelm debuffed opponents; the combination is what makes Kingdra truly shine.

Water Gun* or Waterfall + Outrage and Octazooka

A more niche, specialist moveset that takes advantage of STAB from Kingdra with an emphasis on the Water typing. Water Gun is a legacy fast move that focuses more on energy gain, while Waterfall hits harder at the cost of slower energy generation. Both have their perks and niches depending on the matchups, so do your research ahead of time to make sure you choose the right one.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 3 / 5 

A Dragon/Water typing is excellent for PvP due to only having two weaknesses, one of which Kingdra can also fight back against (Dragon). Kingdra mainly relies on Dragon Breath damage, and now has a cheaper charged move in Octazooka to complement the powerful, but very slow Outrage. Overall, Kingdra is a valid niche pick in open League play that can perform extremely well in Silph Arena Cups.

Ultra League: 3.5 / 5

Being closer to its max CP, Kingdra is best suited for Ultra League, while still maintaining most of its pros and cons from Great. There are surely more dominant dragons here, but Kingdra can hold its own quite well against them.

Master League: 0 / 5

Kingdra doesn't have sufficient stats to compete in Master League. It can still beat Kyogre if it gets a shield though.
