Virizion’s best moveset in Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go players should equip Virizion with Double Kick as its Fast Move, with Leaf Blade and Sacred Sword as Charged Moves.

All three moves listed above are either Grass or Fighting, good for Virizion since it will get the STAB bonus for each one.

Double Kick is the clear winner here for the Fast Move, as it has the best Energy and Power stats overall.

As for the Charged Moves, Leaf Blade has a very efficient DPE in Pokemon Go. Additionally, pairing it with Sacred Sword gives Virizion both a Grass and Fighting-type move in its arsenal.

Is Virizion any good?

Since Virizion is a Legendary, one would expect this Grass/Fighting-type Pokemon to pack a punch in Pokemon Go, and that is indeed the case.

Virizion ranks #12 in PvPoke‘s Ultra League rankings as of November 2023 and ranked as the best Grass-type among the lot.

This Legendary doesn’t have as great power in Master League against more formidable competition, but Virizion still holds up pretty well. PvPoke ranked XL Virizion at #48 in the Master League as of this writing.
