PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Water Gun + Aqua Tail and Ancient Power or Hydro Pump

Water Gun is generally a good move and also benefits from STAB.

Aqual Tail is preferred for its low 35 energy cost which lets it be spammed frequently, is good for baiting shields, and also takes advantage of STAB. Ancient Power also receives STAB, but the nerf from the April 2020 rebalance has decreased its damage output significantly. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2 / 5

Relicanth is an interesting Pokemon in Great League, featuring great bulk, and a good moveset. A Water/Rock typing however, does give it some major issues against common picks, including a double weakness to Grass-types. Unfortunately for Relicanth, Great League is comprised of a large variety of Water-types that compete with each other for roster slots, which makes it difficult for Relicanth to stand out. Overall still a decent pick that can catch unprepared opponents by surprise, with its regional exclusivity being the primary concern surrounding its use. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

With a max CP of 2528 Relicanth can be somewhat expensive to use in Ultra League, as it would need to be powered up a lot to reach its full potential. The numerous Dragon and Fighting-types in this league do pose significant problems for Relicanth though, which makes it difficult to use in the current Giratina meta. 

Master League: 0 / 5

Relicanth doesn't have adequate stats to do well in Master League.
