Pokemon GO Ampharos PvP and PvE guide: Best moveset, counters, and more

Must read

Ampharos was introduced in Pokemon GO along with the original cast of Johto Pocket Monsters back in 2017. It has since been one of the most adored critters in the game, thanks to its design and battle prowess. You can get an Ampharos by evolving Mareep into Flaafy using 25 Candy and then feeding Flaafy 100 Candy. You can also catch it directly from the wild or raids.

Once you have an Ampharos, you might want to use it in battle. Considering the creature can learn a plethora of attacks, it might be confusing for players to decide which one fits it best in different situations in the game. This article answers all questions in that regard.
