Chandelure best moveset in Pokemon Go

One of the best movesets for Chandelure in PvP Battles is Incinerate as a Fast Move alongside Shadow Ball and Flame Charge as Charged Moves.

It’s worth pointing out that Chandelure isn’t great for PvP Battles in Pokemon Go, but if you still want to use it this way then the above moveset is best for dishing out STAB damage with good coverage options.

If you’re looking to use Chandelure as an attacker in Raid Battles, which is where it excels, then go with Hex and Poltergeist for Ghost-type damage or Fire Spin and Overheat for Fire-type damage.

Is Chandelure any good in Pokemon Go?

Chandelure performs best as an attacker in Raid Battles. With the right moveset, it can be a top-tier Fire-type or Ghost-type attacker, so it might be worth powering up two Chandelures and using one for each role.

The bad news is that Chandelure isn’t really viable anywhere in the Go Battle League. It’s got a huge Attack stat but it lacks bulk and its Charged Moves are expensive, so it most likely won’t get a chance to use them.

In terms of Chandelure’s new attack Poltergeist, it looks like it might be a small improvement over Shadow Ball in Raids as it has huge damage potential, but it’s best avoided for PvP Battles as it will be too expensive.
