PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Spark + X-Scissor and Discharge

Spark provides fast energy generation, letting Vikavolt spam its Charge Moves more often. Bug Bite is an alternative choice with a balance of average damage output and energy gains, though Bug-type damage is more niche in the meta. Mud Slap gives up energy gains in favor of stronger damage output, but lacks STAB with Vikavolt. 

X-Scissor costs the least amount of energy in the game, allowing Vikavolt to bait shields often. Discharge helps to fulfill Vikavolt's Electric-type role and is useful against common Water Pokemon. Crunch doesn't have as much value for Vikavolt, though it is an option nonetheless. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2 / 5

Vikavolt competes directly with Galvantula, but is the inferior of the two. Galvantula has utility with Lunge, stronger damage output with Volt Switch, and both are offensively oriented stat-wise. The only time to consider Vikavolt is when a specific format would ban Galvantula and Vikavolt would have a role to play. 

Ultra League: 2 / 5

Thanks to Candy XL, Galvantula can play in Ultra League, which again brushes Vikavolt off to the sidelines. Vikavolt's fragile bulk is a major downside, and consequently struggles against certain Pokemon it has a typing advantage over, such as Walrein or Lapras. 

Master League: 1 / 5

The only Pokemon that Vikavolt wants to fight in Master League is Gyarados.
