Toxapex is a Poison & Water Pokémon which evolves from Mareanie. It is vulnerable to Ground, Electric and Psychic moves. Toxapex's strongest moveset is Poison Jab & Gunk Shot and it has a Max CP of 1,685.
"With its 12 legs, it creates a dome to shelter within. The flow of the tides doesn't affect Toxapex in there, so it's very comfortable."
Poison Jab's strong DPT and EPT outclass Bite's, and gives Toxapex plenty of opportunity to farm enemies down.
Brine is Toxapex's only Water-type Attack and offers coverage against Steel- and Ground-type Pokemon, although it is not particularly strong. Sludge Wave is cheaper than Gunk Shot and sees more consistent use.
Toxapex boasts a massive stat product, rivaling that of Umbreon and making it an extremely tanky Pokemon. It is by far and away Azumarill's greatest nightmare, as it resists everything and can easily farm down with Poison Jab. Toxapex is very capable of leaving a dent in its counters as well, thanks to its bulk and Brine's coverage. However, Toxapex is not without flaws, as its heavy reliance on Poison-type damage combined with Brine's mediocre parameters can leave it with a lot of issues getting past the numerous Poison resists in this game. Dark-type Pokemon such as Sableye or Obstagoon can help overcome some of these issues, and they appreciate Toxapex's ability to prey on Fairy-type Pokemon.
Unfortunately, Toxapex does not reach anywhere close to 2500 CP.
In the main series, Toxapex's viability in the game's uppermost tiers comes its incredible supporting options and unrivaled sustain. None of these options are in Pokemon GO, forcing Toxapex to rely on stats to function. And unfortunately, Toxapex does not come anywhere near Master League viability. It even struggles to beat Play Rough + Close Combat Zacian.
