Palpitoad counters
Palpitoad WaterGround

The best counters for Palpitoad are Grass types like Alolan Exeggutor, Venusaur, Tangrowth and Torterra. Being a 3* raid boss along with sub-par stats and a 4x weakness to the Grass types makes it one of the easiest 3* solos, regardless of the weather.

This guide will show you the best Grass types to plant Palpitoad’s destruction.


Palpitoad is obtainable with the following CP values:

  • 742- 795 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 928- 994 CP at Level 25 with Rainy or Sunny weather boost

Palpitoad Moveset Analysis

Stoutland can learn the following moves in Pokémon Go:

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Mud Shot Ground
  • BubbleWater

  • Earth Power Ground
  • Water Pulse Water
  • Sludge Wave Poison


Mud Shot charges quickly and can get to its charge moves super fast. 

Bubble literally feels like blowing bubbles. Grass types go lolzzzz.  

Earth Power can do some damage to the Grass and Poison type combos while the other Grass type stalwarts resist it. A good move nonetheless.

Water Pulse sounds cool and that’s about it when it faces off against any Grass type.

Sludge Wave can knock out pure Grass types while doing considerable damage to any of the other dual combinations with Grass. Dodging Sludge Wave is advised.

Palpitoad is a mid-stage evolution Pokémon and as such, underwhelming stats are expected. With a fantastic typing and movepool alike, its evolution can certainly find uses in the PvP meta.
