PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Snarl + Night Slash and Close Combat

Snarl provides high energy gains, letting Pangoro spam its charge moves more frequently, however its STAB damage output is unimpressive. Bullet Punch has good stats, but lacks STAB and Steel-typing offensively isn't particularly valuable. Low Kick is a poor move. 

Night Slash is quite cheap for a charge move and can be spammed often to provide frequent shield pressure. Close Combat is recommended for its very high damage threat per energy cost, though its harsh self-debuff makes it more difficult to use. Rock Slide provides valuable coverage as a Rock-type move, but giving up Pangoro's main charge moves might be a tough sell. Iron Head isn't enough to flip matchups against Fairy-types in an even fight. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2.5 / 5

Pangoro shares similar roles with Scrafty and Obstagoon as a combination of Dark and Fighting (Counter in Obstagoon's case). Compared to them however, Pangoro's poor bulk and lack of strong fast move damage output holds it back somewhat. While not being able to learn Counter is discouraging, Pangoro can makeup for this shortfall by offering a different play style to provide Fighting-type coverage through its powerful Close Combat. This can make Pangoro a less consistent choice compared to other Pokemon due to its reliance on baiting shields, but Pangoro's faster access to Dark-type coverage makes it a stronger choice against Ghost and Psychic Pokemon. Unfortunately Cresselia can still one-shot Pangoro with Moonblast while being bulky enough to tank up to two Night Slashes, and Pangoro is still helpless against any Pokemon with Charm. 

Ultra League: 3.5 / 5 

Pangoro's coverage is quite useful for Ultra League, threatening Super Effective damage against a wide array of popular Pokemon. Fast access to its charge moves provides good shield pressure that lets Pangoro challenge various neutral matchups, though consistency might be a concern. Pangoro's fragile bulk is discouraging, and may cause it to lose matchups to Pokemon with strong fast move damage like Dragonite, Gyarados, or Talonflame for example. And obviously, keep this Pokemon away from Fairy Pokemon and other Fighting-types at all costs. 

Master League: 2 / 5

Pangoro's stats are somewhat lackluster for Master League, most notably its bulk stats. Metagross and Rhyperior are the primary targets for Pangoro, with Snorlax (Superpower) and Magnezone being risky and inconsistent matchups depending on shield baiting.
