Dig For Easy Mobility

Dig will let you get in and out of fights smoothly, all while dealing decent AoE damage. It couples well will Earthquake and will let you be a menacing presence at objectives.

Earthquake For The Combo

Earthquake works well when used right after Dig, as you'll be right in the middle of your target. This packs a huge punch and works too well to pass up. That being said, the directional dive from Dragon Rush can also be tempting in some cases.

Rocky Helmet, Rough Skin

Garchomp's passive already makes enemies regret hitting him - doubling up on this by equipping the Rocky Helmet really makes him a target most foes will want to avoid. You can supplement this with other more defensive items if you want as well, or run movement speed to get in the fray faster.

Dragon Rush

Dragon Rush is a dash ability that will do a fairly substantial amount of damage and shove enemy Pokemon. It serves to disrupt enemies and let you get in the thick of things to take out squishy targets. Use this to stick to your main target.

Dragon Claw

Dragon Claw will deal more concentrated damage on a single target than Earthquake will. In addition, it has a slight CC element in the form of its throw. This ability can actually be combo'd with Dragon Rush by pressing them at nearly the same time. This will let you deal your damage in a wider AoE instead.

Garchomp Strategy Guide

Works Best Bot & Middle

Garchomp is a powerful Pokemon that can work in any lane it goes in. However, it benefits from getting a lot of experience fast, so we strongly recommend going middle with it if possible! As a second option, you can go bottom, where exp is most plentiful. Make sure to ask for the last hits to ensure you level up fast.

Which Lanes to Play - Top, Mid, Bottom Lane Roles Guide

Evolve As Quickly As Possible

Evolve As Quickly As Possible

Unfortunately, Garchomp is somewhat of a late bloomer. Expect to start relatively weak and become better as you level up. Aim to have evolved into Garchomp (reached level 10) by the 5 minute mark! You'll hit a huge power spike at this point, so it's important to prioritize this.

How To Level Up Fast - EXP Farming

Try To Always Get Jungle Buffs

Try To Always Get Jungle Buffs

Garchomp can take full advantage of Jungle Buffs. In particular, the Orange Buff, which increases damage done to Pokemon with low health, is ideal for Garchomp.

Gible (Lv 1~) Strategy

Choose Bulldoze First

Try To Always Get Jungle Buffs

Take Bulldoze first for the damage. If you're jungling, focusing on getting level 6/8 for your move-based powerspikes. If you're in lane, play it safe in the early game, as you're very fragile as Gible.

Sand Attack Provides Buffs

Since it doesn't do damage, you might be inclined to ignore Sand Attack, but it actually gives you a not-insignificant movement and attack speed buff. Make sure you're using it on cooldown!

Gabite (Lv 6~) Strategy

Dig Provides Multiple Target Damage

Dig + Earthquake Build

Dig is a multipurpose move you can use to close in on enemies or to simply disengage. You can be a bit more aggressive here, but you're not quite Garchomp yet, so refrain from unnecessary engagements and focus on farming.

Dragon Rush

Dragon Rush is a similar type of forward dash move that shoves enemy Pokemon. However, it has the unique property of being comboable with a later move, Dragon Claw.

If You Choose Dig
Lv 8: EarthquakeEarthquakeMelee
Earthquake is a pure area-of-effect damage ability that can be used to reliably deal tons of damage.
If You Choose Dragon Rush
Lv 8:Dragon ClawDragon ClawMelee
Dragon Claw deals damage moving forward, knocking back with its first hit. This move can actually be comboed with Dragon Rush.

Garchomp (Lv 10~) Strategy

Dig + Earthquake Build

Use Dig to close the distance to your foes then strike them with Earthquake. The more foes, the better. Note that when you upgrade Earthquake it will get a slow component, which can be very useful in teamfights.

Recommended Combo
EarthquakeDig

Dragon Rush + Dragon Claw Build

This build has slightly more single-target burst potential. Charge in with Dragon Rush, then use Dragon Claw to knock back your target. Note that it's possible to combine these two, but it's not necessary to. Make sure to avail yourself of the attack speed buff after using Dragon Claw, as Garchomp's auto-attacks are some of the strongest in the game.

Recommended Combo
Dragon RushDragon Claw → Normal Attacks
