Is Blast Burn Typhlosion worth it in Pokemon GO?

Blast Burn Typhlosion in Pokemon GO PvP

Blast Burn is Typhlosion's best Fire-type move by a large margin. Given the critter's high Attack stat and the benefit of STAB, there are few Pocket Monsters in the current meta that can handle the damage dealt by this move.

Blast Burn is low-energy compared to the other Fire-type moves Typhlosion has access to and has a strong damage-to-energy ratio. Therefore, if you plan on using Typhlosion as a closer in battles, having the Pokemon GO Cyndaquil Community Day Classic exclusive move is a must.

Shadow Typhlosion is one of the strongest non-Mega, non-Legendary Fire-type attackers in the game. However, this is only the case when equipped with the Pokemon GO Cyndaquil Community Day Classic exclusive move, Blast Burn.

With Incinerate and Blast Burn, Shadow Typhlosion deals 18.29 damage per second and has a total damage output of 399.7 in neutral situations.
