Best Movesets for Cresselia in Pokémon Go

The Lunar Pokémon!

Cresselia is a Tier 5 Raid Pokémon that poses a major threat to anyone that wishes to combat its psychic powers. To make sure that your Cresselia is the best of the best, it's not just about powering up their level—you also need to pick the right moveset!

Cresselia is a Psychic Pokémon with no second type, so it's a good idea to focus on those types of attacks. Cresselia is not really known to be great in Raid or PVP battles, but it excels in Great League battles, where Fighting Pokémon are seen most often.


  • Cresselia is boosted by Windy weather.
  • Cresselia can learn other types such as Grass, Fairy, and Ice. If there is no weather boost active, you can try one of these charge attacks to maximize her damage.
