Top Chart for Pokemon Go, Tier & Type Top Lists Included

It has been more than a year since the release of Pokemon Go around the world. As most of the Trainers know, there are three teams that are welcoming players to become part of that specific group. There are 3 teams: Team Instinct, Team Mystic and Team Valor. Each is with a different sign, motto and goals.

Your only goal in Pokemon Go is to locate, battle, catch and upgrade. Sounds simple, right? Well, it’s not so simple as it looks. Therefore, I will present you one of the best Pokemon top charts, what are the most useful attackers against Gyms and Raids, most useful attackers by type and what are the best gym defenders in high turnover areas. (Check out the board below).

First, find a group of Trainers that have the best Pokemon to take over Gyms. This includes you as well. If you have a “popcorn” Pokemon, then you have to “farm” a little bit more.

Next, check your Pokemon base stats and CP and choose the Pokemon with the highest Attack, Defense and HP points. Then choose the perfect moveset for that specific Pokemon and you are all set. These are two major things if you want to take over a Gym or to be successful in a Raid.

Now, to make it easier for you, I have made a board that will guide you and shows you what is the best Pokemon for a specific task and what are his best movesets.
