PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Spark + Discharge and Wild Charge or Flame Charge

Spark is the preferred fast move due to its higher energy gains and benefiting from STAB. Low Kick is a very poor move for PvP.

Discharge costs the least amount of energy among Zebstrika's charge moves, which makes it more accessible. Wild Charge only costs 5 more energy, but deals significantly more damage if unshielded. Flame Charge isn't a great move in PvP due to its poor damage for its energy cost (1.4 DPE), but does offer some niche coverage which could be useful in certain formats. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2 / 5

Zebstrika looks like it's ready to shock the PvP scene with its stripes shaped like thunderbolts, but unfortunately there's not much that's shocking about it. A relatively high ATK stat results in poor bulk, and its moveset isn't anything special from some Pokemon that we already have. That doesn't mean Zebstrika can't fulfill an Electric-type role, it's just that there's plenty of better options out there. Access to a Fire-type coverage move may give it some very niche uses in certain PvP formats, but this most likely won't be meta-defining in any significant way. 

Ultra League: 1 / 5

With a max CP of 2428, Zebstrika barely has enough stats to reach the CP cap of Ultra League. As an Electric-type, it has poor performances in a Giratina-centric meta and generally won't see much use, though it could be an issue for Lapras. 

Master League: 0 / 5

I heard big dragons and dinosaurs prey on zebras, and you wouldn't want that would you?
