Recently, the Mudkip Community Day in Pokemon GO allowed a lot of players to get Swampert. This is because players were incentivized to evolve their Mudkip – first to Marshtomp and then to Swampert – during this event, so that they could unlock a special attack for Swampert. If you are one of these proud new Swampert owners, you will want to make the most out of this Water / Ground Pokemon. Naturally, for this, you will need to know what is the best moveset for Swampert in Pokemon GO. We’ll tell you all about its best moves right here.
Pokemon GO Swampert Best Moveset
As we have already mentioned, the Mudkip Community Day resulted in a huge influx of new Mudkips for dedicated Pokemon GO players. All it took to evolve those Mudkips to Marshtomp was 25 Candy and then 100 Candy to evolve those to Swampert. Additionally, if you have done this entire evolution during the day of the event, then your Swampert also unlocked a special Charged Attack.
