Pokemon Go Best Palkia Moveset
As a Dragon/Water type, Palkia is best used with Dragon type moves as they’re often highly effective against difficult opponents (including other Dragon Pokemon). Using Dragon moves, Palkia can also make the most of the Same-Type Attack Bonus. Therefore, the best moveset for your Palkia is Dragon Tail and Draco Meteor.
Alternatively, depending on your opponent, Aqua Tail could be a good option for a lower energy cost Charge Move.
