Best Moveset for Buzzwole in Pokemon GO

Float like a Beautifly, punch like a Buzzwole.

Being one of the Ultrabeasts, Buzzwole is an incredibly strong Pokemon. Sporting the rare Bug/Fighting type combination, Buzzwole can hit a ton of different Pokemon for supereffective damage and has great one-hit-knock-out potential. However, what is the best moveset for this exoskeletal eliminator?

Pokemon GO - Best Buzzwole moveset


The Fast Fighting-type move Counter is the best choice for a Fast attack for Buzzwole for a couple of reasons. First off, it benefits from Buzzwole's Fighting type through the STAB (same-type attack bonus) mechanic, making it a heavy-hitting option. Secondly, it produces a lot of energy you can convert into Charged Moves. You could also go with Poison Jab for the Fast attack, but it is inferior in damage and energy generation and does not benefit as a STAB attack.


Superpower as Buzzwole's Charged Move is the far-and-away best choice for the slot. While it does have the downside of costing a ton of energy, its STAB typing as well as its massive base damage make it a great tool for cleaving through opposing teams. Buzzwole can also opt for Lunge, Fell Stinger, or Power-up Punch, but all three deal significantly less damage than Superpower, making them obsolete in comparison.
