Aqua Tail PvE Analysis

Gyarados with Aqua Tail in PvE is not that relevant. Hydro Pump will always be the Charge Move of choice in Raids. Hydro Pump Gyarados is also now outclassed by the likes of Kyogre and Swampert, amongst others.

Aqua Tail Gyarados in PvP should a nice shakeup to PvP meta. It takes Gyrados from being something you might only use as a spice pick, to something that could become be a staple of your PvP lineups. We highly recommend giving Aqua Tail Gyarados a try the next time you load up GBL.

SPLISH SPLASH

While on the surface, Magikarp Community Day might not seem like it’s that exciting, there are a few details to keep in mind before making your mind up about how much time you will spend playing it. 3x Catch Stardust is nothing to scoff at. Add to that Magikarp’s relatively high catch % and you have a Stardust buffet. The other thing to keep in mind is that Gyarados has a mega evolution. When and how that evolution is release is yet to be seen, but it is coming soon!
