PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Wing Attack or Quick Attack + Brave Bird and Close Combat

Both of Staraptor's fast moves have identical stats and both benefit from STAB. Wing Attack is more preferable for Staraptor's role as a flier and at least can be Super Effective in some matchups. 

Brave Bird is Staraptor's primary charge move thanks to its lower energy cost in addition to receiving STAB. Close Combat costs less energy than Heat Wave and provides meaningful coverage. Heat Wave has a poor 1.27 DPE and costs too much energy to use. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1 / 5

Staraptor is a Pokemon doesn't perform as awesome as it looks. An offensive stat distribution severely lowers its bulk, while its moveset leaves a lot to be desired. Without a low energy charge move, Staraptor finds it difficult to apply shield pressure or deal any significant damage if shields are in play. Overall a disappointing pick for Great League, though its typing gives it the resistances needed to win against Ghost-types like Haunter and Alolan Marowak. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Staraptor isn't the bird of prey it sought to be, with more losses than wins due the same issues with fragility and a cumbersome moveset. Solid wins against Giratina-O are mostly due to Staraptor's Normal-typing which double resists Ghost attacks, but that's not enough to justify its use when most other popular picks make Staraptor their prey. 

Master League: 0 / 5

With a max CP of 2825, Staraptor looks more like a chicken dinner than a raptor in Master League.
