Leaf Storm is coming to Pokémon GO! For the first time, Leaf Storm will be available to select Pokémon in Pokémon GO. Leaf Storm is a powerful Grass type Charged Attack will decrease your Pokémon Attack stat after use. It can be learned by the following Pokémon –

PvP Power 130
PvP Energy -55
PvP Turns 6

Payback Available to More Pokémon

More Pokémon will now be able to learn Dark type charged attack Payback. Until this update only Machamp could learn Payback (now a Legacy Move), at its Community Day in 2020. The following Pokémon will now be able to learn Payback –

PvP Power 110
PvP Energy -60
PvP Turns 6


If you are new to PVP, don’t forget to check out our Lazy Trainer’s Guide to PVP!  Gaining Payback could add some depth to Pokémon who previously haven’t had access to a Dark type charged attack, especially if your opponent isn’t expecting it! Leaf Storm looks to be an Overheat clone that could really help Ludicolo and Roserade in PVP. For a full meta overview on both of these moves check out our full PVP analysis here.
