Pokémon GO Tier List – Best Attackers (August 2022)

Not all Pokémon are created equal, specifically when it comes to attacking

It’s nearly impossible to know which Pokémon to choose in the ever-evolving world of Pokémon GO. New Pokémon are added all the time while existing ones receive boosts and upgraded moves. However, it’s generally a pretty safe bet to put all your money in on an elite attacker.

So, we’ve created a Pokémon GO tier list ranking some of the best attackers in the game.
