Suicune Movesets

Suicune is a pure Water Pokemon, with a move pool that closely follows his typing and lore:

Fast moves Charge moves
  • Extrasensory Psychic
  • Snarl Dark
  • Ice Fang Ice
  • Hydro Pump Water
  • Bubble Beam Water
  • Ice Beam Ice
  • Water Pulse Water

Best moveset is in bold. Most all of Suicune’s counters will resist its moves, however there are some exceptions, such as Gengar and Snarl. Suicune should be a breeze of a raid boss as long as type advantage is well-utilized and you have some Mega energy stashed away.
