Wingull and Pelipper

 Taillow and Swellow Ralts, Kirlia and Gardevoir 

If you’ve played Pokémon on any handheld console, you’d probably have an idea how useful this Pokémon is… it’s not, not at all. We can see resemblance of that irrelevance in Pokémon GO also. They are both usefull only for their Pokédex entry and Stardust farming.

There’s honestly nothing to get excited here. Pokemon GO Pelipper’s has low CP (1969), low  ATK (175) and STA (120), to even its average DEF (189)… 

It may have awesome dual water flying type, but it doesn’t have any good stats to back it. 

Both of those can easily be found in Rainy and Windy weather.

Position in the meta game

It has awesome wuick and charged moves, but unfortunately, there is no place for this Pokémon on the tier lists. It’s purpose in the game is to provide some Stardust and fill it’s slot in the Pokedex.

Also, there are no known future evolution for Pelipper. So, once you record Pelipper in your Pokédex, well… that’s basically all there is.

Pelipper Moves in Pokémon Go

Best moveset: Wing Attack/ Hydro Pump

Both Quick moves benefit from STAB but, unless you are preparing your Pelipper for attacking Tyranitar in Raid battle, Wing Attack simply pulls out more DPS combined with any charged move.

When it comes to Charged moves only Blizzard doesn’t benefit from STAB. Hydro Pump and Hurricane are both awesome, but Hydro Pump does over 10% more DPS.

Here are Pelipper’s moves in Pokémon GO:

  • Water Gun water (quick)
  • Wing Attack flying (quick)
  • Hydro Pump water (charged, 1 bar)
  • Blizzard ice (charged, 1 bar)
  • Huricane flying (charged, 1 bar)
