Best Offensive Moves for Vivillon

Your Pokéballs are not squandered on Vivilion, as this Pokémon packs a powerful punch. The best offensive moveset for Vivillon is Gust and Hurricane. This combination has the highest DPS and is best for fighting Gyms and PVP.

Gust

Gust is a Flying-type Quick move that deals 25 damage and generates 20 energy, making it ideal for charging your main move. It’s strong against Fighting, Bug, and Grass-type foes but weak against Rock, Steel, and Electric.

Hurricane

Hurricane is a powerful Flying-type move that packs 110 damage for 100 energy. It’s particularly effective against Fighting Bug and Grass types. However, it’s weak against Rock, Steel, and Electric.

Best Defensive Moves for Vivillon

The best defensive moveset for Vivillon is Gust and Bug Buzz. This combination is best used when you must fire off your charged attacks as quickly as possible. 

Gust

Due to Gust’s fast attack, it is perfect for charging up main moves, and in this combination, the main move will be Bug Buzz. With its fast attack and good energy build-up, you should be able to charge your Bug Buzz fairly quickly.

Bug Buzz

Bug Buzz is a Bug-type Main move that deals 100 damage and costs 50 energy. It is effective against Grass, Psychic, and Dark Pokémon but weak against Fighting, Flying, Poison, Ghost, Steel, Fire, and Fairy Pokémon. Due to Bug Buzz’s quick charge time, you should be able to use it more often than Hurricane.
