What is the best moveset for Noivern in Pokémon GO?

Welcome to the fight club.

It was Noibat Community Day, and plenty of people had caught their share of Noibat, ready to evolve it into Noivern and participate in PvP. Since it costs a whopping 400 candies to evolve, it makes us wonder: is Noivern even good for the Go Battle League? If so, what's the best moveset? Let's find out.

Is Noivern a good competitive Pokémon?

Noivern is a Flying and Dragon Pokémon with a maximum CP of 2,764 if you're lucky. Noivern is weak to Ice, Rock, Dragon, and Fairy moves. The best Defensive movesets for Noivern are Air Slash as a Fast Move, and Psychic as a Charged Move. For Offensive, you can use Air Slash as a Fast Move and Draco Meter as a Charged Move.

The new, exclusive, Charged Move added to Noibat during the Community Day is Boomburst. Boomburst, like all other new Pokémon special moves, is an alright Charged Move. It does 150 damage in total. However, this still doesn't make Noivern a Pokémon with which you may end up winning any major leagues.

Lacking a Fast Move that's good or regenerates fast enough, Noivern might just end up sitting in your Pokédex, forgotten, after the Community Day hype dies out.
