There are several Pokémon that you can choose to add to your team in Pokémon Go. Alakazam is a Pokémon from the Kanto region that has been in the game since it was launched and is a useful choice to consider for use in the Battle League and raid. But what are the best moves he can learn? In this guide, we'll break down the best moveset Alakazam can learn in Pokémon Go.
Alakazam is a Psychic-type Pokémon. It is weak against Bug-type, Dark, and Ghost-type attacks, but is resistant to Fighting and Psychic-type moves. First, you want to use Alakazam to counter the different Fighting-type Pokémon that appear in the Large and Ultra Leagues.
These are all the moves Alakazam can learn.
- Counter (Fighting type) - 8 damage and 3,5 energy per turn (4 damage per turn) - 2 turns
- Confusion (Psychic type) - 16 damage and 3 energy per turn (4 damage per turn) - 4 turns
- Psychoc Cut (Psychic type) - 3 damage and 4,5 energy per turn (1,5 damage per turn) - 2 turns
- Dazzling Glow (Fairy type) - 110 damage and 70 energy
- Fire Fist (Fire Type) - 55 damage and 40 energy
- Focus Blast (Fighting type) - 150 damage and 75 energy
- Future Sight (Psychic type) - 120 damage and 65 energy
- Psychic (Psychic-type) - 90 damage and 55 energy (10% chance to lower opponent's defense by one rank)
- Shadow Ball (Ghost type) - 100 damage and 55 energy
Alakazam has a handful of quick moves for you to choose. Of the three choices, the counter is the best option. It has an adequate amount of energy that you can gain with each attack and has the best damage. Also, having a Fighting-type move as well as a Psychic-type move can be quite valuable.
The next are the loaded moves. Alakazam has a large selection of choices, but you can only choose between two of them. We recommend that you take the shadow ball, ghost-type move to defeat other psychic and ghost-type pokémon, then shoot punch. The Fire Fist is probably the odd one, but it's a suitable choice to use against the Bug, Grass, Ice, and Steel-type Pokémon Alakazam battles.
The best moveset to teach Alakazam is the fast move counter and fire fist and shadow ball charged moves.
