‘Pokemon Go’ Damage Per Second Chart: Ranking Each Move by DPS

Pokemon Go niantic, Pokemon Go app, Pokemon Go game,

Pokemon Go is now available for iOS and Android devices. (Niantic)

In Pokemon Go, the free-to-play mobile game from Niantic, each Pokemon has a unique set of moves, and knowing which are most effective is vital before going out and attempting to conquer gyms. But figuring this out is a bit more difficult than you might expect.

Luckily, fans have put together helpful resources that break down exactly how much damage every move in the game does. Also important to know is a move’s damage per second, or DPS, as you want to be both as fierce and as fast as possible. A move’s DPS represents how much damage it does over a certain period of time, and it’s determined by dividing the amount of damage it deals out by the number of seconds the animation takes.

It should be noted that having a high DPS doesn’t automatically make a move great, as you also want to take into account how often you can use the move and how much energy it requires. But with that in mind, Gamepress has assembled some helpful data regarding the damage per second of every move in Pokemon Go, which we’ve presented in the chart below. For more information about each move’s power, cooldown, and energy generated per second, head over to the Gamepress page.
