Here is a continuation of our past "Pokemon GO" article in regards to what is the best Pokemon attacker of each and every type there is in "Pokemon GO."

All these information are from Redditor Nplumb. He also made an infographic showing a detailed look of the Pokemon and its move-set and all of the Pokemon listed would benefit from STAB.

'Pokemon GO' Fighting Type

The best attacker for all fighting type Pokemon in "Pokemon GO" is Machamp with an ideal move-set of Karate Chop and Cross Chop. Not far behind and in fact only 1% weaker move-set than Machamp is Primeape with a fast attack of Low Kick and a charge more of Cross Chop.

'Pokemon GO' Psychic Type

As expected, the strongest of all Psychic types is Exeggutor. In "Pokemon GO," with Zen Headbutt and Psychic it can deal a ton of damage as well as absorb opponent attacks well.

'Pokemon GO' Fire Type

Another predictable top attacker Pokemon is a "Pokemon GO" gym favorite in Arcanine. It's already an obvious choice with Fire Fang and Fire Blast but Flareon is not far left behind with an ideal move-set of Ember and Fire Blast.

'Pokemon GO' Rock Type

There are not a ton of Rock type Pokemon in "Pokemon GO" and usually considered strongest Rock type is Onix but that is incorrect and it's not even in the top three. Golem is the strongest Rock type with Rock Throw and Stone Egde.

'Pokemon GO' Flying Type

What could be the most common type of Pokemon, "Pokemon GO" flying types are almost everywhere. Cutting to the chase, Pidgeot can still cause a ton a damage given the right move-set of Wing Attack and Hurricane.

'Pokemon GO' Steel Type

According to the infographic shown on Reddit, Aerodactyl is the best Steel type attacker in "Pokemon GO" with Steel Wing and Iron Head. That's is not entirely correct as Dragonite's Steel Wing deals 25% more damage.

'Pokemon GO' Ghost Type

For Ghost types, obviously Gengar, Haunter and Ghastly are the only Pokemon in "Pokemon GO" that belongs to this category. A Gengar with Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball is your best bet.

'Pokemon GO' Water Type

Everyone would guess Vaporeon will be the Water types best attacker in "Pokemon GO," surprisingly it's only the third one on the list. Water Gun and Hydro Pump is the most ideal move-set and Golduck and Starmie both lead Vaporeon in dealing the most amount of damage with this move.

'Pokemon GO' Bug Type

Bug types are great Exeggutor counters and the best Bug type there is to use for attacks is Venomoth. A Venomoth with Bug Bite and Bug Buzz is deemed the strongest move-set a bug type Pokemon in "Pokemon GO" can learn.
