PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Snarl + Foul Play and Avalanche

Ice Shard is a solid fast move, but after the update Snarl blows it out of the water with its incredible energy generation, giving Weavile a niche as a unique spammy glass cannon.

Avalanche (90 Power/45 Energy) and Foul Play (70 Power/45 Energy) offer powerful STAB damage with very wide-reaching coverage. Depending on the meta, the much slower Focus Blast could also come in handy as a surprise nuke on Steel-types.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2 / 5

Weavile's high attack leaves it heavily restricted in the Great League, making it a poor pick for the tier. A double weakness to common Fighting-type damage is also a significant risk that Weavile must be cautious to avoid. Given the risks involved with this Pokemon, Weavile is most optimal in specific formats that limit its numerous weaknesses. 

Ultra League: 2.5 / 5

Weavile has some niches in the Ultra League against both Giratina forms, but it's not the most generally useful Pokemon in this capacity.

Master League: 2.5 / 5

Weavile can threaten many high-powered pokemon in the tier such as Giratina, Lugia, Garchomp, and Dragonite with its potent and pervasive STAB attacks. However, it is still frail, and doesn't perform well when it's not being played to its strengths. Proper use of Weavile requires careful play and forethought, as it could be the winning trump card, or nothing more than dead weight.
