PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Fairy Wind or Fire Fang or Ice Fang or Bite + Power-Up Punch and Play Rough or Iron Head

The September 2019 rebalance gave Mawile a bunch of new options which can let it be flexible depending on the PvP format and Mawile's role. Fire Fang and Ice Fang have identical stats and cover different typings, with Fire Fang more favorable vs Steel-types, and Ice Fang being slightly more favorable against Mawile's weakness to Ground-types, in addition to hard-countering Dragons. Bite is a bit inferior now due to its slightly worse energy gains in comparison, but its typing can still be valuable in certain formats. Fast forward three years and in September 2022 the addition of Fairy Wind finally gives Mawile a STAB Fast Move, in addition to offering much faster energy generation. 

Power-Up Punch is preferred for its low energy cost which lets Mawile bait shields, in addition to its stat-boosting mechanics. Play Rough provides Mawile the invaluable fairy STAB that it needs to perform its main function as a dragon-slayer, while Iron Head charges faster and provides a secondary STAB. Vice Grip is a bad move. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 3.5 / 5

Mawile... exists... in the Great League. When using its Fairy STAB in conjunction with its huge triple resistance to Dragon type moves, not to mention its plethora of other resistances, it can potentially act as a highly effective counter to Pokemon such as Altaria, Dragonite, Dragonair, and even Deoxys-D. The September 2019 rebalance gave Mawile additional tools in its moveset which lets it perform even better, most notably being able to defeat every Dragon-type eligible in Great League in almost all even shielding scenarios. Unspectacular bulk however, holds Mawile back from being more viable in the meta. Below average energy gains also limit Mawile's overall threat, and makes shield-baiting almost a necessity if it ever hopes to land its hard-hitting charge moves. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Mawile has a max CP of 1634 which is unviable in the Ultra League. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Mawile is unviable in the Master League.
