PVP Mode Explanatory Notes
PvP Moveset Explanation
Snarl is generally more preferable due to its significantly better energy gains, though Ice Fang can provide useful coverage against common typings.
Scald offers good damage at a moderate cost, and its high chance of debuffing Attack synergizes well with Suicune's high bulk. Ice Beam covers Grass- and Dragon-type Pokemon. Bubble Beam is Suicune's cheapest Charged Attack and offers a guaranteed Attack debuff, but its damage output is beyond pitiful and is just a much worse move than Scald. Hydro Pump is too expensive and Water Pulse is just horrid.
PvP Rating Explanation
Suicune is a relatively tanky Pokemon, and with a mono-Water typing it had difficulty standing out among the very populated Water-type picks. The December 2023 update gave it a much needed reliable Water-type Charged Attack in Scald, though Suicune can still struggle to stand out. Nevertheless, its good bulk, debuff potential, and coverage in Ice Beam at least makes it a viable choice, especially in limited cups.
Suicune's good bulk and excellent movesets are fantastic in dealing with the Giratina-centric meta that overshadows the Ultra League. Access to Ice-type coverage is valuable for dealing with common Dragon-types, while Snarl's fast energy and the debuff utility from Scald can make significant impacts if applied on important targets. Even for matchups that Suicune does lose, leaving the opponent debuffed could enable follow-up farming plays to turn the tide of the fight.
Suicune's stats aren't quite up to par.
