Pokemon Go Mega Swampert best PvP moveset

The best moveset players can choose for Mega Swampert in PvP is Mud Shot as a Fast Move and Hydro Cannon as a Charged Move.

Mud Shot allows players to benefit from STAB, target a certain type of enemy, and quickly access the Charged Move.

As a Charged Move, Hydro Cannon is the best option as it is a cheap move with incredibly high damage that can help bait shields. Plus, mixing one Ground and one Water move will amplify Mega Swampert’s coverage in battle.

In case you’re looking for a secondary Charged Move, pick Earthquake, as this powerful nuke will pulverize any enemy left.

Pokemon Go Mega Swampert best Raid moveset

Mega Swampert’s best moveset for Raid battles consists of Water Gun as a Fast Move and Hydro Cannon as a Charged Move.

This move combination works perfectly as they are both cheap moves that hit hard and benefit from extra STAB. Due to how fast Water Gun is, players will reach Hydro Cannon and its 90 damage very quickly.

As a dual creature, Mega Swampert can be used in Raids as a full Water or full Ground-type attacker. However, due to typing weaknesses and strengths, the Water moveset is a tad superior, as it offers more coverage.
