Rampardos is not a Pokémon that you usually see in competition with other players in the Battle League Pokémon Go. If you want to make the most of this Pokémon, we recommend using it in PvE battles and raids. Even though you don’t use it in PvP and against other players, you still want to make sure you make the most of Rampardos. In this guide, we will share the best moves Rampardos will learn to use in Pokémon Go.
Rampardos is a rock-type Pokémon. It will be weak against Fighting, Grass, Ground, Steel and Water moves, but is resistant to Fire, Flying, Normal and Poison moves. You can use it in several three-star raids that occur during many Pokémon Go events, or even against certain five-star raids, depending on your opponent.
These are all movements that Rampardose teaches.
- Smack Down (rock type) – 12 damage and 2.6 energy per wheel (4 damage per wheel) – 3 turns
- Zen Headbutt (mental type) – 8 damage and 2 energy per round (2.6 damage per round) – 3 turns
- Flamethrower (Fire-type) – 90 damage and 55 energy
- Rock slide (rock type) – damage 75 and energy 45
- Outrage (dragon type) – damage 110 and energy 60
Fortunately, Rampardo doesn’t have too many moves to choose from, so it’s a little easy to choose the best options. As for its fast movement, we strongly recommend slapping it down. It has much better damage than a zen headbutt and gives Rampardos even more energy.
For a charged move, you have several options to choose from. Normally you want to go with attacks that require less energy, but a flamethrower is not as good in this situation as outrage. The Outrage costs just five more energies and causes 20 more damage, making it an effective replacement for the flamethrower. Of the three options, you want to teach Rampardos to slip and resent.
Rampardos is not a good Pokémon choice for any of the PvP categories due to CP requirements. Rampardos has a maximum CP of 3,298, which means it will be placed in the Master League. However, it is a small fish in a lake full of larger fish and will eat right away. If you place her in the Ultra League, she may fight, but her stats are extremely restrictive, preventing her from reaching her full potential. As a result, Rampardos cannot compete in the Grand League. In addition, all his statistics are challenged, making him an extremely fragile glass cannon.
The best movement set for teaching Rampardos is the quick movement of the slap down, and the charged movements slip and outrage.
