PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Mud Shot* or Bubble + X-Scissor and Crabhammer

Mud Shot is a legacy move, but offers the best energy generation in the game. Bubble takes advantage of STAB to deal significantly more damage than Mud Shot, with still respectable energy gains.

X-Scissor is generally a weak move, but demanding the least amount of energy and providing coverage against Kingler's weakness to Grass-types can be valuable. It's also the best option for baiting shields. Crabhammer benefits from STAB to deal very respectable damage, and is a direct improvement over Water Pulse

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1 / 5

While Kingler may be the King of Water DPS in PvE, it's the King of the Saltiest Losers in PvP. With heavily skewed stats leaning towards offense, Kingler has very little to offer in terms of bulk, which causes it numerous losses. The addition of Crabhammer isn't enough to offset Kingler's fragility, which rather unfortunate. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

In Giratina's eyes, Kingler may very well look like king crab legs. It's got that nice seafood saltiness too. 

Master League: 0 / 5

I heard Dragons like crab legs too, maybe because it's already naturally seasoned with saltiness.
