PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Thunder Shock + Discharge and Magnet Bomb

This is the most popular moveset for Magneton, and it's finally not legacy anymore. Thunder Shock is the best fast move due to its superior energy generation.

Discharge isn't a terrific move, but sporting a lower energy cost than Zap Cannon makes it more accessible. Magnet Bomb offers Steel-type coverage, but is also a stronger choice during neutral matchups.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 3 / 5

Magneton is a niche pick, sporting poor bulk, a typing that offers 12 resistances, and a good moveset. Known for its high offensive power and low durability, Magneton doesn't see much use in open formats due to its squishyness. Restricted formats where dominant meta picks are limited decreases the amount of threats against Magneton and gives it opportunities to shine. 

Ultra League: 2 / 5

Magneton is a risky pick for Ultra League, featuring one of the worst overall stat products in this league among meta Pokemon due to its high Attack stat and poor bulk. Unfortunately Giratina and its Fighting-type escorts easily dispose of Magneton, which limits its overall use. 

Master League: 0 / 5

With a max CP of 2485, Magneton has few opportunities in Master League. Consider its evolved form, Magnezone, instead.
