Sharpedo in the Pokémon GO meta

Sharpedo is in a weird place right now, featuring solid offensive performance, but with no real matchups:

  • Absol / Houndoom can do better everything that’s Dark related
  • A ton of water types do Water type stuff better.
  • Poison Fang Poison is simply trash

We suggest using it as a second team option in raids, but nothing else comes to mind.
