Pokemon Go Amoonguss best PvP moveset

The best moveset for Amoonguss in PvP is Feint Attack as a Fast Move and Grass Knot as a Charged Move.

Feint Attack offers decent coverage and damage out of the two Fast Moves, so go with it. Meanwhile, you can pick Grass Knot as a Charged Move due to its nice balance between damage and energy cost.

Players who can afford a second Charged Move should pick Foul Play because even though it’s the cheapest move, it deals good damage and offers more coverage.

Pokemon Go Amoonguss best Raid moveset

Amoonguss’ best moveset for Raids consists of Feint Attack as a Fast Move and Foul Play as a Charged Move. Even though neither benefits from STAB, they are the most stable combination for these types of encounters.

Astonish is simply a bad move, so the only option for a Fast Move ends up being Feint Attack. As for the Charged Move, Foul Play is a decent attack, plus it’s the only one out of the list that works well with Feint Attack.

Players looking for a different coverage can change Foul Play for Grass Knot, mostly if they’re taking a more defensive approach.
