With the Fennekin Community Day happening this May, many of you will get your hands on Delphox. Delphox is a powerful Fire/Psychic-type Pokémon that’s great at dishing out a ton of damage. However, with so many different movesets to choose from, it can be tough to know which ones are the best.
Thanks to the Fennekin Community Day Event, you have so many Fennekins to catch to evolve into Delphox. Additionally, if you evolve your Braixen during the event it will have the Charged Move, Blast Burn. With that being said, let’s get right back on the topic.
In this article, we will talk about the best moveset for Delphox in Pokémon GO and some strategies for using it.
Fast Move: Fire Spin
Fire Spin is the best fast move for Delphox because it deals a lot of damage and has a quick energy generation rate. This means that you can charge up your charged moves quickly and unleash them on your opponents. If you remember, Delphox is a fire-type Pokemon so it is a great idea to utilize that.
Using Fire Spin as its fast move is a smart choice. It is able to do a lot of damage thanks to its Same Type Attack Boost (STAB). Additionally, it is a form of type coverage so you can deal Fire Type Damage.
Another reason why it is a great Fast Move is that you will want to get a Psychic Type Charged Move. Getting Fire Spin means you have coverage for a Fire Type and a Psychic Type.
Charged Moves: Psychic and Blast Burn
Psychic is one of the best moves for Delphox because they deal a lot of damage and has a fast recharge time. Psychic is great for taking down opponents that are weak to Psychic-type moves, and it fully utilizes Delphox’s Psychic typing. While it does not boast the highest amount of damage, it more than makes up for it with a short cooldown.
However, if you do not need a Psychic Type for coverage you can never go wrong with using Blast Burn. Blast Burn deals a ton of damage thanks to its 110 base power. Moreover, that number will definitely be higher thanks to Delphox’s Fire Typing and STAB. Since you can get it during the event, why not utilize Blast Burn as its Charged Move?
If you’re looking for a moveset that will give you the most coverage, then Fire Spin and Psychic are the way to go. However, if you want a moveset that will let you deal the most damage you should use Fire Spin and Blast Burn. These moves will allow you to deal a lot of damage and take down your opponents quickly.
Delphox: Additional Tips
Since it is a high-damage dealer, it is understandable that Delphox is a glass cannon. Keeping that in mind, it’s important to be careful not to let it get hit too much. Do not overestimate its capability to tank too many hits. Also, do not let it fight a water-type Pokemon since it is weak to water-type moves
While we are talking about weaknesses its weaknesses are Dark, Ghost, Ground, Rock, and Water-type moves. Now that you know its weakness, be sure to avoid using it against opponents that have these types of moves.
