The best moveset for Tyrantrum

Tyrantrum is a Rock and Dragon-type Pokémon. It will be weak against Dragon, Fairy, Fighting, Ground, Ice, and Steel-type moves, but it is resistant against Electric, Fire, Flying, Normal, and Poison-type attacks. Unfortunately, the Rock-typing for Tyrantrum holds it back if you ever plan to use it out in the Pokémon Go Battle League, but it does have some use in raids and PvE battles, especially against Team Rocket members.

These are all of the moves Tyrantrum can learn.

Fast moves

  • Charm (Fairy-type) – 16 damage and 2 energy per turn (5.3 damage per turn) -3 turns
  • Dragon tail (Dragon-type) – 13 damage and 3 energy per turn (4.3 damage per turn) – 3 turns
  • Rock Throw (Rock-type) – 8 damage and 2.5 energy per turn (4 damage per turn) – 2 turns

Charged moves

  • Crunch (Dark-type) – 70 damage and 45 energy (30% chance to lower an opponent’s defense by one rank)
  • Earthquake (Ground-type) – 120 damage and 65 energy
  • Outrage (Dragon-type) – 110 damage and 60 energy
  • Stone Edge (Rock-type) – 100 damage and 55 energy

When figuring out Tyrantrum’s fast move, you want to go with dragon tail. It’s the best choice of the three options. Dragon tail does a decent amount of damage and has the highest energy generation for Tyrantrum, giving it the chance to use its charged moves far more often throughout a fight.

As for the charged moves you want to select, we highly recommend crunch and stone edge. These are solid moves that do not require as much energy as the other two will, namely outrage and earthquake. In some contexts, outrage and earthquake are useful, but crunch and stone edge provide far more damage potential for Tyrantrum.

The best moveset to teach Tyrantrum in Pokémon Go is the fast move dragon tail and the charged moves crunch and stone edge.
