A select number of Galarian Pokémon have become available in Pokémon Go. Not all of them are available, but the ones you can catch are rare and challenging to capture. One of the Pokémon you can add to your roster is the Galarian Darmanitan, the evolved form of the Galarian Darumaka
The Galarian version of Darmanitan is a polar opposite of its original release. It’s an Ice-type Pokémon. Unfortunately, given the stats and available attacks for this Pokémon, you likely won’t see it too often in the battle league. Still, you will want to use it as an available raid Pokémon, taking on any of the mighty Dragon, Flying, Grass, and Ground-type Pokémon you can encounter in raids.
Galarian Darmanitan has a maximum CP of 3,105, an attack of 263, a defense of 114, and a stamina of 233. Given how low its defensive capabilities are, you do not want to rely on it as a tank or use it within the first portion of a fight. It’s all about power. That makes it a mediocre choice for fighting other trainers unless you want an alternative that using every shield you have and taking out your opponent with your attacks.
Of its available movesets, you certainly don’t want it to know tackle for its fast attack, which leaves ice fang as the best option. For your charge, you can choose between avalanche and ice punch, both Ice-type attacks. It has the option to know overheat, which could work if you need type-coverage, but you may want to focus on it have the superior status type attack bonus.
Overall, the Galarian Darmanitan will be a rare find to have in your roster and fun to have, but you don’t want to swap it out for any of your go-to Ultra League Pokémon.
