Is Vaporeon any good in Pokemon Go?

Vaporeon is a useful option for your team if you want to use a reliable Water-type combatant, although the Pokemon is admittedly hard to recommend for Battle League. It’s especially weak against Electric and Grass-type Pokemon.

The good news is that Vaporeon has quite a few resistances, including against Fire, Ice, Steel, and other Water-type Pokemon.

Vaporeon has gotten progressively less impressive in Pokemon Go as more species have been added. We’d advise against using it in the restricted Great League and Ultra League matches.


We’d recommend you avoid using it completely in the Master League. A Pokemon like Kryogre would be a much safer option.
