Wailord is a Water Pokémon which evolves from Wailmer. It is vulnerable to Grass and Electric moves. Wailord's strongest moveset is Water Gun & Surf and it has a Max CP of 2,280.
"Wailord is the largest of all identified Pokémon up to now. This giant Pokémon swims languorously in the vast open sea, eating massive amounts of food at once with its enormous mouth."
Zen Headbutt is bad, so we run Water Gun. Pair that with Surf for powerful and consistent Water-type damage. Hyper Beam is the second charged move of choice to provide strong neutral damage. Blizzard is also potentially a viable option, but does mean you perform worse against fellow Water-types like Azumarill.
As round as Wailord may be, a well-rounded Pokémon it is not. Despite having Snorlax-tier stamina, its Feebas-tier defense makes it faint to a swift breeze. While Wailord may be a fun Pokémon to use (especially if it’s shiny), it’s not that great.
Wailord has the same issues in Ultra League as it does in Great, making it not particularly useful.
Wailord’s low maximum CP prevents it from performing in Master.
