Luxray, the Electric-type Pokémon from the Sinnoh region, is a favorite of many players. We recommend using it in Pokémon Go's PvP modes or against specific raids. If you're looking to use him in these intense fights, you'll want to make sure you're giving him the best possible attacks. In this guide, we will detail Luxray's best moveset in Pokémon Go.
Luxray is an Electric-type Pokémon. It is only weak against Ground-type attacks, but is resistant to Electric, Flying, and Steel-type moves. You'll mostly need to use it against Flying, Ghost, Poison, and Water-type Pokémon due to Luxray's specific attacks.
These are all the moves Luxray can learn.
- Hidden Power (all types) - 9 damage and 2,6 energy per turn (3 damage per turn) - 3 turns
- Growl (Dark type) - 5 damage and 4,3 energy per turn (1,6 damage per turn) - 3 turns
- Spark (electric type) - 4 damage and 4 energy per turn (2 damage per turn) - 2 turns
- Crunch (Dark type) - 70 damage and 45 energy (30% chance to lower opponent defense by one degree)
- Hyper Beam (Normal type) - 150 damage and 80 energy
- Psychic Fangs (Psychic Type) - 40 damage and 35 energy (100% chance to lower opponent's defense by one rank)
- Wild Charge (Electric Type) - 100 damage and 45 energy (100% chance to lower opponent's defense by two degrees)
When it comes to selecting Luxray's quick move, you generally want to go with growl. However, among the available options, Hidden Power has too many choices and doesn't offer enough energy return for Luxray to find it useful. Spark is on the verge of being better, but growl gives Luxray a Dark-type attack that she can use against Ghost and Psychic-type Pokémon and has provided more energy per turn.
You have several options to choose from for the charge move which can make choosing a bit difficult. The best choice is the wild charge. It's an Electric-type attack that can do massive damage against various Pokémon you encounter and lowers the opponent's defense rating by a reasonable amount. Next up is Psychic Fangs, the Community Day exclusive move available to Luxray. It also reduces the opponent's defenses but doesn't do as much damage.
The best move set Luxray can use in Pokémon Go is the quick move growl and charge moves, psychic fangs, and wild charge.
