Typhlosion vs Hisuian Typhlosion: Which is better in Pokemon GO?
Hisuian Typhlosion lacks access to Blast Burn, which is one of the best Fire-type Charged moves in this game. Typhlosion, on the other hand, can learn that attack. This gives the latter creature some leverage over its Hisuian counterpart.
However, Hisuian Typhlosion has better elemental typing coverage with Fire and Ghost typing. Unfortunately, it also becomes vulnerable to some core-breaking monsters due to its added weaknesses.
While both these creatures are brilliant in their own ways, Hisuian Typhlosion needs to wait for its Community Day exclusive move to be crowned as the better Typhlosion in GO.
