PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Air Slash or Infestation + Lunge and Air Cutter

Air Slash provides stronger damage output, given that Masquerain has poor charge moves. Infestation generates energy more quickly, but Masquerain's charge moves are quite bad.

Lunge is the main charge move of choice, dealing decent STAB damage while ensuring a guaranteed ATK debuff on the opponent. Bubble Beam can debuff the opponent's ATK for 5 less energy, but its damage is pathetic. Silver Wind is redundant due to its worse damage output, and the small 10% chance to proc is self-buff is unreliable. Air Cutter is a very poor move that demands a moderate amount of energy to use, but at least it gets STAB. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1.5 / 5

Masquerain is mainly used for debuffing opponents, which can be somewhat useful given switch advantage. However, Pokemon Go's PvP system does not smile on Pokemon whose only real utility is debuffing, as a simple switch can clear out all of your hard work, meaning Masquerain has done effectively nothing.

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Even when boosted, Masquerain can’t really compete in Ultra League.

Master League: 0 / 5

Masquerain at its best still isn’t good enough for the big leagues.
