Charmander was one of the starter Pokémon you could choose from in the early Pokémon games. You have the option of catching a Charmander in Pokémon Go, and most players eventually evolve one or catch a Charizard. It is a suitable Pokémon to use in some PvP teams and is a solid choice for several PvE battles. This guide details the best moveset to teach Charizard in Pokémon Go.



Charizard is a Fire and Flying type Pokémon. It will be weak against Electric, Rock, and Water-type moves and is resistant to Bug, Fairy, Fighting, Fire, Grass, Earth, and Steel-type moves. Because it has so many resistances, it is an ideal choice for most PvE encounters and raid battles.

These are all the moves Charizard can learn.

Quick moves

  • Air Rift (flying type) - 9 damage and 3 energy per turn (3 damage per turn) - 3 turns
  • Breath of the Dragon (Dragon-type) - 4 damage and 3 energy per turn (3 damage per turn - 1 turn
  • Ember (Fire type) - 7 damage and 3 energy per turn (3,5 damage per turn) - 2 turns
  • Pinwheel of Fire (Fire type) - 9 damage and 3,3 energy per turn (3 damage per turn) - 3 turns
  • Wing Attack (Flying type) - 5 damage and 3,5 energy per turn (2,5 damage per turn) - 2 turns

Moves loaded

  • Explosive Burn (Fire-type): 110 damage and 50 energy
  • Claw of the Dragon (Dragon-type) - 50 damage and 35 energy
  • Fire Explosion (Fire type) - 140 damage and 80 energy
  • Flamethrower (Fire type) - 90 damage and 55 energy
  • Overheat (fire type) - 130 damage and 50 energy (100% chance to reduce user's attack by two degrees)

When it comes to choosing a quick move for Charizard, there are several options available to you. It's important to keep in mind that you can use Charizard for the Great League or Ultra League, and in those cases, you want to use certain attacks based on Charizard's overall stats. For example, you usually want to give Charizard the fast fire move for the Great League. But if you're planning on using it in the Ultra League, teaching him Dragon Breath or Fire Rotation is a viable option. Both are solid choices.



You have several options available for charged moves, but you really just want to pay attention to the explosive burn and the dragon's claw. While overheating does the most damage for a small amount of energy, it also acts as a debuff. You'd better use Explosive Burn and Dragon's Claw, making sure Charizard keeps all of his stats during a fight.

The best moveset to teach Charizard in the Great League is the fast spin of fire and charged moves burn burned and dragon claw. However, if you use Charizard in Ultra League, the quick move can be fire spin or dragon breath, but keep the burn blast and dragon claw charged moves.
