Evaluation criteria

Althoug using DPS is easy to measure the power of moves, it is not enough to see total attack performance because of other elements, such as EPS and STAB. Taking all the factors into account is needed to identify which Pokemon and moveset is exactly the most powerful. This page uses total attack performance calculated like the following.

  • [Total attack performance] =

    [Total DPS] × [Pokemon's Attack]
  • [Pokemon's Attack] =

    [Attack (Base stats)] + 15
    Note: 15 indicates the max IV
  • [Total DPS] =

    ([FM's total power] + [CM's power]) ÷ [Required time per set of FM & CM]
  • [FM's total power] =

    [FM's DPS] × [Seconds to fulfill energy bar]×[STAB]
  • [Seconds to fulfill energy bar] =

    [CM's required energy] ÷ [FM's EPS]
  • [Required time per set of FM & CM] =

    [Seconds to fulfill energy bar] + [Time for Pressing the screen to use CM] + [Duration]
  • STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus)

    STAB makes the power of the move 1.5 times higher.
  • In case FM's DPS is higher than CM's DPS

    Only FM is taken into consideration ([Total DPS] = [FM's DPS]).

What is DPS?

Damage Per Second, called DPS, is a indicator to look how powerful and efficient the move is to beat another Pokemon in gym battles. The higher the DPS of the move is, the more powerful the move is.

What is EPS?

Energy Per Second, called EPS, is an indicator, assigned to fast moves, to look how quick the fast move can fill the energy bar spent for using charge move.
