"Solrock is a new species of Pokémon that is said to have fallen from space. It floats in air and moves silently. In battle, this Pokémon releases intensely bright light."
Confusion is a great move in PvP, hitting especially hard thanks to its STAB boost when combined with Solrock's Psychic typing while also giving very reasonable energy gains. To compliment it, Rock Slide and Psychic both provide solid damage plus STAB for reasonable energy cost, allowing Solrock to stay threatening throughout the match. Solar Beam is objectively stronger and hits some of Solrock's counters for huge damage, but its high energy cost means Solrock likely won't be able to unleash it before dropping. Still, if you can store a bit of energy before the opponent gets in their counter, it can spell death for a lot of Pokemon when shields are down.
Solrock... is not good in PvP. It has a nice moveset overall, but not nice enough to make up for its sub-par typing and slightly offensively-oriented stats. It can be useful in some cases, but its niches are better served by other Pokemon.
Giratina says "Hi".
Seeing Solrock hit the field is sure to make your opponent happy (if a bit confused) at least!
