Pokkén Projectile Priorities

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! I've made a big list of every Projectile in the game and put them within tiers to help you understand what Projectile beats what and which clashes with each other. Tier 1 having the lowest durability while Tier S having the highest. Here's a graph form here if you want to save it! Now updated for Pokkén Tournament DX!

Can I ask why Weavile's j.Y in Field is listed in tiers 3, 4 and 5, all at the same time? Is it supposed to be like that? And speaking of Weavile, his CA is considered a projectile as well, since Weavile himself you can Agility through it, and can even be Mirror Coated by Suicune if uncharged. Don't know where it fits in this hierarchy, though. I want to say the first hit of his Field f.Y and b.Y are considered projectiles, too, as I've seen the former negate Lucario's Field s.Y.

Weaviles j.Y is in multiple tiers because It can cancel out against certain projectiles in each tier. For example, It trades against Weavile's Y (1) and it also trades against Mewtwos A (5). Same thing applies to Blazikens j.YY. I'll add his Counter attack and see about the rest.

Nice list. I believe Mewtwo's f.Y and hyper beam should both be under no durability though? They don't get canceled by or clash with any of the projectiles listed above them.

Yeah @Thulius has a point about beams in general. I don't know about M2 f.y but things like Laser, Hyper Beam and Aurora Beam don't seem to have any durability. They pass through everything as far as I know even each other.

No durability is just projectiles that don't cancel or clash with any other. Most beams and lasers (S) can cancel out pretty much every projectile in the game that's under S which has durability. Every S projectile go through each other or just the fastest one wins because there Beams! Although Mewtwos f.Y should be in S Tier yes.
