PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Wing Attack or Water Gun + Weather Ball (Water) and Hurricane or Blizzard

Wing Attack provides Flying-type coverage and is generally preferred over Water Gun due to its superior energy generation, though the latter offers stronger damage output and Water-type coverage. 

Weather Ball is Pelipper's primary charge move due to its low energy cost and its efficient Damage Per Energy (DPE). Hurricane is generally chosen for its lesser energy cost compared to Blizzard, but the latter can be elected for its wide coverage. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 3.5 / 5

Pelipper is a Water/Flying Pokemon that shares similarities with Mantine, being the less bulky of the two but offering superior Water-type coverage thanks to Weather Ball. A moveset consisting of Wing Attack and Weather Ball is the most popular in the meta, and allows more consistent Flying and Water-type coverage than what Mantine can provide. Access to the slower Hurricane or Blizzard instead of Mantine's Ice Beam results in cumbersome secondary coverage, and consequently Pelipper struggles against Pokemon like Altaria and Meganium that Mantine handles more comfortably. Overall a solid pick that counters certain popular meta teams, but tends to underperform notably against tanks.

Ultra League: 3 / 5

Pelipper's max CP actually doesn't reach the CP cap of Ultra League, and thus Pelipper would appreciate additional stats for better performance. Pelipper does well against common Grass and Fighting Pokemon in this league, and tends to struggle notably against Dragon-types like Giratina, as well as bulky Pokemon like Cresselia or Armored Mewtwo. PvP formats that exclude powerful legendary Pokemon are more favorable for Pelipper, such as Premier Cup. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Pelipper lacks stats for Master League.
