Tier List Update (October 20th)

※ Most changes here are due to the addition of a new lower tier.

State Of The Meta

The current meta favors Attackers and All-Rounders in the jungle over Speedsters. Due to relying on melee attacks and being somewhat fragile, Speedsters have fallen out of favor, but it's possible that the newest balance update (as well as some of the newly introduced items) will bring some change to the current meta.

Tier List For Each Role

Attacker Tier List

※ The tier lists below show which Pokemon of this role are the best in various different key gameplay aspects. For an overall strength ranking, consult the tier list at the top of the page.

Best Damage Tier List

Best Mobility Tier List

Best Crowd Control Tier List

In the current meta, Greninja is king, seeing a lot of play in the Jungle as well. Auto-attacking physical Attackers are being favored, but Special Attackers like Pikachu and Alolan Ninetales are still quite powerful. Venusaur's recent buffs could potentially lead to an overall rise in its rank/performance!

Defender Tier List

Best Damage

Best Durability

Best Crowd Control Tier List

All Defenders are in a pretty good spot, with Blastoise being the crowd favorite, due to its incredible damage. The other four are also in a good place and see play in many matches - a Defender is always considered an asset to their team, making it hard to go wrong when choosing them!

Supporter Tier List

Best Healing

Best Ally Buffs

Eldegoss's healing potential has let it keep its top power, but Wigglytuff is slowly advancing. Although its damage was nerfed recently, the pink slapping menace has been seeing more action. However, some would say it's being played closer to a Defender than a Supporter.

Best Early Game

Speedsters are fun and powerful Pokemon that have a great influence on the early stages of a match. However, they are falling out of favor due to the prevalence of Attackers and All-Rounders in the Jungle. Speedsters' melee attacks and low durability are somewhat of a liability in the late game. That being said, it's still very possible to carry on them!

Best Team Synergy

Unfortunately for the other All-Rounders in the game, Lucario exists. It reigns supreme in this camp, with incredible mobility, power, and objective snipe potential. The other Pokemon are also quite viable, but simply fall short when compared to Lucario. Note that many All-Rounders are played in the Jungle in the current meta.

Tier Lists By Lane

What's Best For Each Lane?

Lanes

The Tier Lists below rank what the best Pokemon are for each respective lane. This is crucial, as different roles can go to different lanes. Knowing what Pokemon are strongest in a lane can help you fill that lane for your team, so make sure to stay knowledgeable about more than just one role!

Lane Guide - Which Lane Should You Go To?

Tier Explanation

Note that the tiers below are not meant to match up with the overall Tier List. They are intended to let you know which Pokemon perform best in a given lane. Pokemon in the C Tier, for example, would best not be used in that particular lane.

S Tier- Performs excellently in the lane
- Is commonly spotted in high rank matches
A Tier- Performs well in the lane
- Not as strong/popular as S Tier, but still completely viable
B Tier- Capable of performing decently in the lane
- Decently suited for the lane, but you may struggle against your lane opponent
C Tier- Might struggle to perform in that lane
- Might simply be better suited for another lane

Top Lane Tier List

Best Pokemon For The Top Lane

Defender Pokemon tend to take the top lane, as they can hold it very well even if their lane partner should temporarily leave. Blastoise and Snorlax are perfect for doing this. However, it's more than possible to have any Attacker up in this lane as well. Speedsters are overall not well suited to this lane.

Middle Lane Tier List

Best Pokemon For The Middle Lane

Although most people may associate the middle lane most with Speedsters, it's actually Greninja and Lucario that are most dominant there. In second place are the Speedsters - these Pokemon have great potential and mobility and benefit greatly from the middle lane's experience. In third place are often the other All-Rounders, who scale very well with leve.

Although it's not impossible to succeed with them, we don't recommend taking the Pokemon in the C Tier into the jungle with you!

Bottom Lane Tier List

Best Pokemon For Bottom Lane

Bottom Lane benefits from having a Supporter, and this tends to be either Eldegoss or Blissey (although Wigglytuff has been extremely common as well). Their partner should be a Pokemon that can spar well and that benefits from getting exp. Speedsters are not recommended here, as they'll have a hard time doing what they're best at.
