Empoleon Pokemon GO can be a rather powerful water-type Pokemon with a Steel defensive background, but there were better Pokemon out there. That changed during the community day.

Fans were able to catch Piplup during the community day on Sunday. Some were looking to farm shinies while others were farming perfect Piplup with powerful CP stats so they could evolve it into Empoleon.

Before the community day and the inclusion of a powerful move, players used Metal Claw and Hydro Pump as the best moveset. That changed to Metal Claw and Hydro Cannon.

Although, if you want to have a Empoleon that's strictly water based, use Waterfall and Hydro Cannon. He'll be a powerful water-type Pokemon which also has a Steel-type to help with some weaknesses.

Pokemon GO had a stellar year breaking all type of records with nearly $1 billion in revenue. Pokémon GO's player spending previously peaked in 2016, when the game pulled in $832 million in its debut year, according to Sensor Tower's analysis.

Despite a steep drop to $598 million in 2017, player spending steadily increased since. The game hit $816 million in player spending in 2018 before its latest peak. $894 million is an impressive number by itself, but to have passed the revenue from the opening year means only good things for fans going forward.
