Pokemon GO Drampa: Best moveset, counters, and is it any good?

Drampa was released in Pokemon GO on February 5, 2024, with the start of the Lunar New Year event. At that time of writing, it is only available as a 3-star raid boss and as a Field Research task encounter. It is a Normal and Dragon-type critter, the only one of its kind, and its inclusion in Niantic's mobile game marks one of the last unreleased Alolan Pocket Monsters' entry into the arena.

In this article, we will look at the best moveset for Drampa in GO PvP and PvE. We will also discuss the strengths, weaknesses, and counters you can use against Drampa in GO.

Is Drampa good in Pokemon GO PvP and PvE?

Drampa has a high Attack stat, but its low defense (164) and stamina (186) stats make it fairly squishy. As a result, it cannot tank hits in the GO Battle League, especially in the Great League. You must, therefore, pair it with a bulky Pocket Monster like Azumarill, Lickitung, Mandibuzz, Jellicent, and so on.

Drampa is a mid-tier Dragon-type attacker in Pokemon GO. It has a respectable damage output of 15.32 DPS with Dragon Breath and Outrage. While it is outclassed by other critters of its type, it can be an excellent Gym Defender in the title.
