Tapu Koko move sets

Fast Moves Charge Moves
  • Volt Switch Electric
  • Quick Attack Normal
  • Brave Bird Flying
  • Thunder Electric
  • Thunderbolt Electric
  • Dazzling Gleam Fairy

Tapu Koko’s moves are mostly Electric moves, but be aware that Brave Bird and Dazzling Gleam are in the mix as well.

Most Trainers won’t have any problems dealing with it, as Ground-type Pokémon are readily available, and most of the times Tapu Koko will be using Electric moves.

We found that Quick Attack and Dazzling Gleam is the most dangerous move set to be faced against. In case of QA/DG combo, Roserade becomes the best available counter, as it takes reduced damage from Fairy moves.
