Opinions on Terrakion are so extremely variable it’s a pain figure his real utility. I don’t know if the list will be left dying and will end like the community day register unupdated since September. Just here have passed 3 weeks.
I mean, we have all the info we need to make a placement but the list nor the Terrakion’s page shows his PvE utility. And honestly, just “better than Tyranitar” leaves me in a vacuum.
Well if simple advise doesn’t satisfy you and gamepress attacker tier list isn’t updated as regularly as you need (and IMHO isn’t very accurate anyway) then it seems you may want start doing some research of your own.
I suggest you to open pokebattler’s webpage and start doing some simulations.
Go to raids (raid counters), pick some raid that you may use your Terrakion against and setup some general parameters like pokemon levels, friendship level, weather and then choose raid movesets and see for yourself how would Terrakion perform.
If that doesn’t satisfy you, you can even go further and see how your Terrakion would perform throughout the simulation (how much damage it does with each fast and charge attack and how much damage it receives, and hence how much time does it endure and how much damage it does before going down)
If that doesn’t satisfy you, you could also create a free account and start adding your pokemon, editing levels, movesets and IV’s, and creating your own battle party and simulating how it would do against the raid of choice.
If you need help with anything you can ask me, good luck.
I noticed the flavor of the month section got updated but I don’t know why so soon and with Terrakion who has thousand weaknesses didn’t. I don’t care why though, as I plan to raise none of that shadowed pokemon. I don’t know if this means they plan to update it soon or not with all the new moves stuff…
Lucario was added to Tier 1 with no explanation.
Terrakion was added to Tier 2.5 with no explanation.
Hydreigon was added to Tier 3.5 with an explanation.
Machamp was demoted to Tier 2 but its explanation was not changed.
I noticed it! Also Rhyperior and Entei were upgraded from tier 4 to 3.5 and Tangrowth added to 4. No explanations about how the Earthquake and the other fast Ground attack affect Groudon and Excadrill, they remain the same.
Sorry all for the delay. Holidays, work, other projects, waning interest in GO, etc.
Tier list is fully updated. Lucario going into T1 bumped Machamp down to T2. Terrakion fits into T2.5, Tangrowth shows up in T4 again with Power Whip, Heatran debuts in T4 with Flamethrower, Rhyperior and Entei were promoted due to the Mud Slap, EQ, and Fire Fang buffs, and various suggested sets were fixed or un-legacied. Enjoy.
