      The following chart shows Bouffalant's DPS and TDO for every fast and charge attack combination. This chart is useful for comparing the relative strength of Bouffalant's movesets. You can change the weather and the opposing Pokémon to see how it affects the rankings.

      If you are unable to get Bouffalant with its best moveset, we recommend to use Zen Headbutt/Skull Bash. You will lose around 4.3% DPS and TDO, which makes these moves a viable alternative to Bouffalant's strongest moveset (Mud Shot/Skull Bash).

      Legacy Elite Fast and Charge Attacks can only be obtained during special events, or by using an Elite Fast TM or an Elite Charge TM. Legacy moves are marked with an asterisk (*). The table above provides information on different moves Bouffalant has in Pokémon GO, along with their corresponding DPS (Damage per Second) and TDO (Total Damage Output).

              Catch probability with multiple throws

              In order to help Trainers understand their overall odds when catching Bouffalant, we enable the functionality to showing the total chance to catch it depending on the number of available throws. We calculate this chance as if you repeated the same throw N-number of times.

              To activate this functionality, change the number of Number of throws to a value greater than 1. The Number of throws option is available in the configuration options above the chart

              Catch rate formula

              Pokémon GO catch rate formula can be expressed as follows:

              • CATCH_MULTIPLIERS = ball * curve * berry * throwType * (type1Medal + type2Medal / 2)
              • CATCH_RATE = 1 - Math.pow(1 - baseCatchRate / (2 * cpm), CATCH_MULTIPLIERS)

              There are different multipliers that come into play when calculating catch rate.

              Curved throws are more effective than regular throws, stronger types of Poké Ball have a higher catch rate, and using a Razz Berry or a Golden Razz Berry also improves your chances.
