HYDRO CANNON PVE ANALYSIS

In PvE, Hydro Cannon Empoleon won’t be a game-breaker. Hydro Cannon is a powerful move, and it most certainly will improve Empoleons performance in Gyms and Raids. This, unfortunately, isn’t enough to make it very viable, mainly due to the stats of the Iron Penguin. Kyogre, Kingler, and Swampert are better picks, as Empoleon clearly gets outclassed by them. It also gets hit with neutral damage from Fire- and Ground-types, to which it is super effective. Short: It will be better, but it won’t be great.

HYDRO CANNON PVP ANALYSIS

In PvP, Empoleon makes up for its disappointing performance in PvE. With 8 single and 2 double resistances, Empoleon has some foundation to build on. In open Great League formats, it won’t shine and will be inferior to King Mudboi Swampert (as a Hydro Cannon user). In certain metas, it definitely will be useful, again thanks to his Steel-typing.

Look at the Silph Arena’s current running cup, the Fusion Cup. Empoleon will cause a meta shift, and whether it will be small or big, you better prepare for it! By the looks of it now, Empoleon will have a dominating role with notable wins against A LOT of the Fusion Meta. Consider using it, and if not, definitely make sure you can counter it! 

Below is an analysis of a Rank 1, Hydro Cannon, Empoleon in each PvP League.
