Rhyperior best moveset in Pokemon Go

The best moveset for Rhyperior in Pokemon Go 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 Fighting-type attack Superpower for more coverage options – or consider Surf if you’re facing an opponent that’s weak against water.

Is Rhyperior any good in Pokemon Go?

Rhyperior can be a useful addition to your team when it has its best moveset, although the Pokemon is admittedly a mixed bag in Battle League. It’s a powerful Pokemon in PvP battles, but be aware of its weaknesses to Fighting, Ice, Water, Steel, Grass, and other Ground-type attacks.

The good news is that Rhyperior has quite a few resistances, including against Electric, Fire, Flying, Normal, Poison, and other Rock-type Pokemon.

Rhyperior is only really useful in Master League matches, but even then, there are usually better options. However, if you need a Ground/Rock-type Pokemon that can also use water moves (like Surf), then Rhyperior can become a viable option.

It’s also a really great option for Raid Battles, where it can perform as either a Ground-type or Rock-type attacker, depending on what you need.
