Pokemon Go Octillery best PvP moveset

The best moveset for Octillery in Pokemon Go PvP is Lock On as a Fast Move and Octazooka as a Charged Move

Either one of Octillery’s Fast Moves is good and every Charged Move is expensive, so the best strategy is to pair Lock On with Octazooka.

Lock On, despite its very low damage, will allow the player to gather plenty of energy fast so it can access its Charged Move. Octazooka benefits from STAB, has decent damage and it’s one of the cheapest out of the bunch.

Octillery’s best moveset for Raids consists of Water Gun as a Fast Move and Water Pulse as a Charged Move.

As a single Water-type Pokemon, the best tactic for Raids is to benefit from the STAB and go with Water Gun as a Fast Move and pair it with the only viable option, which is Water Pulse, as Octazooka is only good in PvP.
