Rhyperior was introduced to the franchise in Gen 4 and is a very tough fighter you consider having on your Pokemon Go team. Here are the best moveset you can teach the Drill Pokemon in case you do so.

Rhyhorn’s final evolved form, Rhyperior, is a powerful Ground/Rock-type Pokemon that resembles a colossal rhinoceros and evolves from the middle stage evolution, Rhydon. While Rhyperior is tough, it can still be taken down by wily enemies.

Therefore, the key to victory in every Pokemon Go battle is utilizing this Pokemon’s best moveset and avoiding opponents it’s weak against. So, here are the best movesets for Rhyperior in both PvP and Raid battles.

Pokemon Go Rhyperior best PvP moveset

The best moveset for Rhyperior in PvP is Mud Slap as a Fast Move and Rock Wrecker as a Charged Move.

There are two potential Fast Moves to choose between for Rhyperior, and neither of them are great. We’d recommend Mud Slap for Ground-type coverage but go with Smack Down if you want Rock-type coverage instead.

Pair this with Rock Wrecker as a Charged Move and you’ll be able to deal some epic levels of Ground/Rock-type damage. If you can afford a second Charged Move, go with the Dragon-type attack Breaking Swipe as it deals good damage for very low energy.

Pokemon Go Rhyperior best Raid moveset

Rhyperior’s best moveset for Raids consists of Smack Down as a Fast Move and Rock Wrecker as a Charged Move.

As said before, Rhyperior’s Fast Moves are not good, so there’s no big difference picking between one or the other. However, it’s better to focus on one typing, so go with Smack Down to pair it with the Rock-type Charged Move, Rock Wrecker.

Rock Wrecker is a Community Day exclusive move, but if you happen to have it, you better use it, as it has an outstanding damage output and a very high damage per energy.
