PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Dragon Breath + Flamethrower and Twister

Dragon Breath is the recommended fast move, with high damage output backed by STAB. Ember sports the average 3.0 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 3.0 EPT (Energy Per Turn), which is inferior stat-wise but its typing gives it a niche. 

Twister offers horrible damage output for its energy cost, but STAB makes it a little less miserable to use, in addition to it being cheaper in energy than Shelgon's other charge moves. Flamethrower offers some extra coverage, in particular against Shelgon's weakness to Ice-types and common Steel-types. Dragon Pulse is significantly more powerful than Twister, but high demands for energy makes it very cumbersome to use. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1.5 / 5

Shelgon is one of the few Pokemon blessed with the powerful Dragon Breath, which alone can handle numerous off-meta picks thanks to its high STAB damage output. Unfortunately, access to poor charge moves makes Shelgon rather slow with shield pressure, and a relatively high ATK stat limits its bulk in Great League. While Dragon Breath is an excellent move, it's not enough to beat most meta Pokemon in this league. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Shelgon has a max CP of 2031, which doesn't even reach the CP cap of Ultra League. 

Master League: 0 / 5

At least consider evolving into Salamence if you're gonna consider Master League.
