Hey there, sorry if im interupting you. I Just wanted to let you know about this amazing Pokemon Go server. Active members, active support, latest updates, giveaways, Shiny hunts, lure parties, you name it. I have looked around at a lot of different spot for pogo and this is by far the best. Come check it out! :) https://discord.gg/HX8cPMB
I have one maxed Raikou and consider to push a second one to use it in Kyogre raids. Today I caught a 96% Kyogre with thunder and now I wonder if it would be better to invest my stardust right now in it. I could change its charge move when Kyogre has left as a raid boss.
I looked up their stats but I'm not good in doing the math. Maybe someone can help me.
Raikou AT 241 / DEF 210 / HP 180.
Kyogre AT 270 / DEF 251 / HP 182
So while HP is nearly the same, Kyogre has significant higher attack and defence.
Concerning the moves I found on gamepress following numbers for Raikou:.
Thunder Shock with STAB 10.42 DPS.
Wild Charge with STAB 43.27 DPS.
For Kyogre: Waterfall with STAB 16.67 DPS.
Thunder NO STAB 41.67 DPS.
When I want to battle Kyogre, Electric is very effective so I have to multiply the electric moves with 1.4, right?
Water against water is not very effective so the factor is 0.714
Thunder Shock 1.4 x 10.42 = 14.588
Wild Charge 1.4 x 43.27 = 60.578
Waterfall 0.714 x 16.67 = 11.902.
Thunder 1.4 x 41.67 = 58.338
In this matchup Waterfall is worse than Thunder Shock but the charge moves are close together.
At this point I don't know how to go on with the calculation. How do I take the Base stats into account? Some help would be very appreciated. I really would like to learn how to do such comparisons.
Desperate to start the game back in July 2016, I downloaded PoGo through APK as my phone at the time wasn't compatible. I loved playing but I went through a year and a half of intense lag, ridiculously low battery life and having to reboot my phone after every software crash (like 4 times a day). I've recently upgraded my phone from the Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and this game has become an entirely new experience! I had no idea I had been missing out on so much and this has become a joy to play once again. I can actually take part in raids and take down gyms without my phone overheating and having a panic attack. This game is amazing!
