Azumarill has made quite a name for itself in Pokemon GO, leaving trainers scrambling to find its best moveset.

Trainers discovered Azumarill's hidden potential in recent seasons of the player versus player Pokemon GO Battle League. Much like its film counterpart, the GO Battle League is broken up into several different tiers based on the maximum CP attained by any Pokemon at the given time. Azumarill is eligible for the Great League, where it is one of the most powerful contenders thanks to its considerable type resistances and notable stamina.

Azumarill Pokemon GO Moveset Guide

Azumarill is a water and fairy-type from the Johto region. It is the evolved form of Marill, obtained by using 25 candies to prompt its evolution. This Pokemon made its debut with the first bulk of Johto releases in February 2017. Its shiny variant was implemented nearly two years later in December 2018.

It has the following combat stats:

  • Maximum CP: 1795
  • Attack: 112
  • Defense: 152
  • Stamina: 225
  • HP Total: 190

This Pokemon's best moveset includes a move corresponding to each of its types: the quick move Bubble and the charged move Play Rough. Both of these moves will benefit from the extra 20% damage boost that comes with the Same-Type Attack Bonus (STAB) condition.

Trainers should be wary around poison, electric, and grass-types in battle. On the flipside, Azumarill is strong against over twice as many types, including ice, water, bug, fighting, fire, dark, and aggressively against dragon-types.

Azumarill's PokeDex number is 184. It is best known for its impeccable hearing—being able to identify prey despite the rushing of water around it.
