With the forbidden Pokemon in Great League Remix Season 8, coaches will look for less obvious options like Mandibuz.
He may not be as dominant as Umbreon, but Mandibuzz has great statistics for the Grand League. The 129 Attack may seem overwhelming, but Mandibuzz compensates for its small strength with 205 defenses and 242 stamina. It is also really difficult to deal with the combination of Darkness and Flying. To make good use of this Pokemon, trainers will definitely want to pair it with something that can solve Charm spam. This is an ideal Mandibuzz move.

What moves work best with Mandibuzz in Pokemon GO?
Mandibuzz is lucky that both of his quick moves are decent. Air Slash and Snarl operate over 10 DPS. In general, however, Snarl usually has a better effect. There are not many moves in Pokemon GO that charge more than 10 EPS and trade over 10 DPS at the same time.
That said, Air Slash is not a bad option if Mandibuzz is used as a flying type attacker. It is slightly slower than Snarl, but it does 14 damage every time it is used.
Statistically, it seems like Dark Pulse would be an easy option compared to Foul Play. Both have equal energy costs, and the Dark Pulse has another 10 base powers. However, a better move on Mandibuz would be a foul.
This is because the Dark Pulse has cooled down for a really long time. If the coaches look at DPS, they would see that Foul Play does a lot more, even though it has less basic strength. In any case, Foul Play is still strong Dark guy a move that hits much of the popular Pokemon in the Great League Remix. Also, since the top 20 in the Grand League is banned, Mandibuzz doesn’t have to worry Azumarill inclusion.
The second charging move that Mandibuzz should launch is Aerial Ace. This should be uninterrupted for anyone who uses Air Slash, because it makes Mandibuzz fulfill a strong role of a flying type attacker. Of course, as with all moves that require only 33 energy, the Aerial Ace is good at burning shields and quickly removing damage.
