      "Smack Down and Stone Edge can be both use as attack and defense strategy. Once evolved, Rhyperior could be the best rock type attackers in the game. "

      "Rhyperior with Mud Slap and Earthquake would be a great choice. Earthquake will do more damage... the problem is that he's not particulary good compared to others pokemons, but if you get a rhyperior with that moveset, with a good IV (like yours) and with a decent CP it can be quite useful.

Before becoming a game developer, Game Freak was a print publication company? It focused on covering Japan's arcade scene. It's headed by Satoshi Tajiri, credited as the creator of Pokémon. Game Freak interviewed arcade owners and get tips for playing popular arcade games. With the release of the Famicom, Tajiri and Masuda wanted to try making a game for it. It was with the Yoshi that Game Freak would start its journey as a game developer with Nintendo. After a few projects, Game Freak showed Nintendo the earliest ideas and versions of Pokémon. The earliest concept was an emulation of catching bugs, and that hasn’t changed much over the years.

The other important piece of a Pokémon game is the Pokémon themselves. Each generation of games adds new monsters to the collection. It now features over 800 creatures. Today, the Pokemon series of games is in its 7th generation release cycle. There are even some great fan-made Pokemon games that could pass for an official game. Classic Pokemon like Charizard and Dragonite will always have a place in fans' hearts. It's time to give other newer Pokemon a fair chance. You don't have to play the latest Pokemon game. There are plenty of great ones from older generations like Gen IV. You'll find Dialga, Giratina, Garchomp, and Rhyperior here. Rhyperior, in particular, is also featured in the mobile game, Pokemon Go. It is no wonder then that players were looking for the best Rhyperior move set to test out in battle. New Pokemon games are being expected in the next few years. Pokemon Fans rejoice!

    Mud Slap and Stone Edge

    Mud Slap and Stone Edge is an offense and defense move set for Rhyperior. Mud Slap, a fast move, combined with a main move Stone Edge produces better performance due to Stone Edge's early damage window for defense.

    Smack Down and Surf

    Smack Down is a move set for Rhyperion that combines both water and ground type moves which can serve as a strategic attack move on water. The move set has been an excellent addition to Rhyperior and Surf is Rhyperior's 2-bar move.

    Mud Slap and Surf

    Mud Slap with Surf is as super effective as Mud Slap with Earthquake for Ground DPS but it's weak against Water and Grass Types.  Mud Slap coupled with Surf is a moveset that inflicts minimum damage

    • Amit TataWritten on January 14, 2019
      "Surf should only be good against other rock or dual ground type but if the charge attack is for water and grass types, it both resist surf. and flying types take more damage from surf than the earthquake. "
