Dialga is one of the best Legendary Pokémon that players can chase in Pokémon Go. It has incredible stats and can be exceptionally difficult to fight. Almost all of the top-tier Master League competitors in the Pokémon Go Battle League use one, so it's almost become a tradition to see them in at least one of your five battle sets. If you can catch this Pokémon, you want to make the most of it. In this guide, we will detail the best moveset for Dialga.
Dialga is a Dragon and Steel type Pokémon. It will be weak against Fighting and Ground-type Pokémon, but is resistant to Bug, Electric, Flying, Grass, Normal, Poison, Psychic, Rock, Steel, and Water-type Pokémon. With so many resistances, it's not easy to find a good Pokémon to use against Dialga. It also has a max CP of 4.038, an attack of 229, a defense of 179, and a stamina of 173. With XL candies, Dialga can reach a max CP of 4.565, an attack of 243, a defense of 189, and a stamina of 184.
These are all the moves Dialga can learn in Pokémon Go.
- Dragon Breath (Dragon type) - 4 damage and 3 energy per turn (4 damage per turn) - 1 turn
- Metal claw (Steel type) - 5 damage and 3 energy per turn (2,5 damage per turn) - 2 turns
- Meteor Drake (Dragon-type) - 150 damage and 65 energy (100% chance to reduce user's attack by two degrees)
- Iron Head (Steel Type): 70 damage and 50 energy
- Thunder (electric type) - 100 damage and 60 energy
Despite being an excellent Pokémon, Dialga doesn't have too many fast movement and charge options, which is never bad. It makes it easier for every manager to understand which are the best choices. For the quick move, you want to go with the dragon's breath. It's a faster move than the metal claw and provides the same amount of energy, making it a better option so that Dialga can use more charged moves.
When it comes to charged moves, we can throw thunder. Despite being a lower energy charged move than Meteor Drake, it doesn't deal as much damage and Dialga receives a STAB modifier when attacking with Meteor Drake, which means it will do more damage. There is no competition. The best loaded moves to use for Dialga will be draco meteor and iron head.
The best moveset for Dialga to learn is the Fast Dragon Breath and the Draco Meteor and Iron Head charged moves.
