Pvp is upon us!

Pokebattler has been hard at work, adding new features to support PvP. The full rankings page is finally ready for prime time! Many more types of rankings will be coming, including by type and matchups for every Pokemon. We also plan to have analysis tools to evaluate your battle parties for potential weaknesses and provide suggestions for filling out a battle party.

These results should be considered a starting point for PvP discussion. The rankings do not currently consider dual charge moves or switching Pokemon.
