Ursaluna is one of the trickiest evolutions to get in Pokemon Go, so we’re taking a look at its best moveset and whether it’s any good for PvP Battles.

Ever since November 2022’s Community Day, Pokemon Go players around the world have been able to use the power of moonlight to evolve Teddiursa into its final evolution, the Ground/Normal-type Ursaluna from Legends Arceus.

Any Ursaluna that you evolved during that Community Day event will also know the exclusive attack High Horsepower, so there’s an extra piece to the puzzle when trying to figure out the best moveset for this third-stage evolution.

Ursaluna best moveset in Pokemon Go

One of the best movesets you can teach Ursaluna for PvP Battles is Tackle as a Fast Move with High Horsepower and Thunder Punch as Charged Moves.

Ursaluna’s Fast Moves leave a lot to be desired, but Tackle is the best of a bad bunch as it has higher energy generation, better cooldown, and STAB. It’s probably best to avoid Rock Smash where possible.

As for Charged Moves, the event-exclusive attack High Horsepower is a definite standout, offering huge STAB damage. The final move is up to you, but we’d recommend Thunder Punch for the extra coverage.

All moves Ursaluna can learn in Pokemon Go

Ursaluna can learn two potential Fast Moves and four potential Charged Moves, which we’ve listed below:

Ursaluna Fast Moves

  • Rock Smash (Rock)
  • Tackle (Normal)

Ursaluna Charged Moves

  • Aerial Ace (Flying)
  • Fire Punch (Fire)
  • High Horsepower (Ground)
  • Thunder Punch (Electric)

Is Ursaluna good in Pokemon Go?

Considering how difficult Ursaluna is to evolve (it requires 100 Candy and a full moon to be in the sky), our opinion is that it’s not really worth the hassle of evolving and powering it up unless you’re just looking to fill out your Pokedex.

The big problem with Ursaluna is that its Fast Moves are underwhelming, and its Charged Moves aside from High Horsepower aren’t amazing either. It does have some potential in the Master League, where it’s able to take on the likes of Garchomp, Giratina, and Zacian.

For reference, at the time of writing, Ursaluna places 658th in the Great League, 490th in the Ultra League, and 40th in the Master League on PvPoke’s rankings. We’d argue that it’s not really worth the investment when there are better options out there – especially in the uber competitive Master League.
