How to defeat Blastoise

This page shows the strategies to successfully beat Blastoise considering Blastoise's possiible movesets. To see the details of Blastoise, such as evolution chart, where to find, and stats, tap the name of the Pokemon.

Super effective moves

Blastoise is weak to moves of the type below. You can see the list of grass- and electric type moves by tapping the name of types below.

Grass Electric

1. Venusaur

Blastoise's moveset

The combination of Water Gun and Hydro Pump is considered as the optimal moveset for Blastoise.

Fast move Charge move
Water Gun Hydro Pump


When the moveset of Blastoise is the combination of Water Gun and Hydro Pump, Venusaur is one of the best Pokemon for fighting against it. Since Venusaur is a grass-type Pokemon, can reduce the damage of water-type moves by half. O the other hand, Venusaur's glass type moves are super effective against Blastoise.

Best moveset for Venusaur to bead Blastoise

Even though Venusaur can learn Sludge Bomb for its charge move, Solar Beam is recommended when fighting against Blastoise.

Fast move Charge move
Vine Whip Solar Beam

Other options

To defeat Blastoise, make Victreebel and Vileplume learn glass-type moves instead of poison-type moves. For list of glass-type Pokemon tap the name of type below.


2. Jolteon

Blastoise's moveset

When Blastoise's charge move is Ice Beam, glass-type Pokemon may not be good for beating it.

Fast move Charge move
Water Gun Ice Beam


Jolteon can use Thunder, the electric-type charge move, which is super effective against Blastoise. However, Jolteon cannot cut the damage of water-type moves by half. Dodging attacks and using Thunder is the best way to fight against Blastoise.

Best moveset

The combination of Thunder Shock and Thunder is an optimal moveset for Jolteon to beat Blastoise based on DPS, EPS, and type match-up.

Fast move Charge move
Thunder Shock Thunder

Other options

Besides, no one use Blastoise anymore to begin with, it's bad compared to other bulky Water-types in the game, even with Hydro Cannon.
