Toxapex, the Poison/Water-type Pokemon from the Alola region is an absolute tank with plenty of resistances, so here are the best movesets you can teach it for Pokemon Go’s PvP and Raid battles.

It might not be the most appealing-looking Pokemon, but ever since it first appeared in Sun & Moon, Toxapex has made a name for itself as one of the best Water types around.

With a huge Defense stat and a great type combination, your opponents will have a difficult challenge ahead of them if they want to defeat it in Pokemon Go.

Now that its pre-stage, Mareanie, will be featured in the Spotlight Hour on May 28, 2024, here are the best movesets you can teach Toxapex once you evolve it.

The strange-looking Toxapex can learn two potential Fast Moves and four potential Charged Moves in the game. Here they are:

Toxapex Fast Moves

  • Bite (Dark)
  • Poison Jab (Poison/STAB)

Toxapex Charged Moves

  • Brine (Water/STAB)
  • Gunk Shot (Poison/STAB)
  • Sludge Wave (Poison/STAB)
  • Muddy Water (Water/STAB/Legacy Move)

Pokemon Go Toxapex best PvP moveset

One of the best movesets you can teach Toxapex in Pokemon Go’s PvP is Poison Jab as a Fast Move with Brine as a Charged Move.

Poison Jab is the best Fast Move in Toxapex’s arsenal, especially as it comes with STAB. On the other hand, Brine is the cheapest Charged Move for baiting shields.

If you can afford a second Charged Move, compliment Brine with the nuke Sludge Wave to deal outstanding damage.

Pokemon Go Toxapex best Raid moveset

Toxapex’s best moveset for Raid battles consists of Poison Jab as a Fast Move and Gunk Shot as a Charged Move.

Even though Toxapex is not a great attacker, you can go for Poison Jab and Gunk Shot for extra STAB damage. Plus, both attacks are the strongest out of its move pool.

For a more defensive approach -in which Toxapex can excel- you can change Gunk Shot for Brine to amplify its coverage and use its multi-bar.
