Pokémon GO players rejoice! There’s a new Pokémon in town and it is sure to get you excited. This Fire-Flying type, with stats comparable to those found on Pikachu or Charizard (respectively 251 ATK 181 DEF 207 STA), can be caught at level 20+. It also has an impressive CP rating of 3917 which makes this little bunch suitable for any trainer looking ahead towards their next Gym battle–unless they’re up against Electric types like Raikou which would take down Moltres before even reaching 1/10th HP left due its vulnerability Cassandra despite not being weak versus Water flooding.

Team Valor really lucked out with this update, because Niantic has graciously spared them the embarrassment of putting Moltres in a gym. The Fire Bird would have been utterly humiliated by Golem and Exeggutor who are both proving to be quite dominant against most legendaries- so it’s worth keeping an eye on these fighting types!

Moltres Best Moveset

Moltres is one of the strongest Pokémon in-game, but he also has vulnerabilities that can be exploited. His Fire Spin and Sky Attack combination deal high damage with accurate accuracy at a distance while being weak to rocks; this set works great against Grass types like Ivysaur or Venusaur because they’re susceptible too doubled weakness from these movesets. Other Water type opponents should beware though–Moltexff doesn’t take kindly to Electric attacks coming his way either!

Moltres Pokemon Go Raider

Like Articuno, Moltres doesn’t have any useful matchups against Tier 3 raid bosses. But it does have one redeeming use: if you are fighting Venusaur (or Blastoise) in an earlier stage of the game and they both Proc their respective movesets on different turns–Molteres’ fire type will deal higher damage output than Charizard because his attacks hit 2-3 times per round!

In addition to having a much better version of its predecessor from Gen I & II—with higher effective health bar versus enemies; greater average DPS numbers across all three stages.

Moltres has an interesting relationship with Lapras. Fire types have some use here, because they resist Ice and Normal attacks are Super Effective against the Electric type Pokemon; however Moltres itself is Flying so it takes Neutral damage fromWater-type moves (which can be problematic). Despite these drawbacks though there’s no doubt that this Dragonite based on its high DPS score will cause trouble for even tanky Water pokemon like Blissey or Politoed!
