(*) Slaking is an exception in Generation III, with it’s ridiculous Max CP. As he will probably be nerfed, take this chart with a grain salt.

Tier list explanation

Like already written, this Tier List is probably going to change over time, however, this are the Pokémon we consider will be the best Gym Attackers added in Generation 3 of Pokémon GO.

Slaking, Metagross and Salamence are no brainers due to their high Max CP, great typing and good stats. Salamence is likely to be worse than Dragonite, but it’s still a great addition to the metagame.

Aggron, Gardevoir and Milotic are interesting additions in their own, especially Gardevoir. Gardevoir’s typing makes her a very potent dragon slayer. Aggron will have access to interesting movesets and Milotic is the Gen 3 version of Gyarados.

Walrein is fairly high up due to it’s ice type, which makes him a viable version of Cloyster. Dragonite has another contender to fear.

The bottom of the chart consists of niche attackers, while Swampert gets a special shoutout. Blaziken has no place in the meta currently, but it is still better than Sceptile.

Interestingly, Breloom is also a better attacker than Sceptile, with 241 ATK.
