Movesets for Singles
What is a good competitive moveset for Tauros? These builds have been optimized for Pokemon competing in Red/Blue Single Battles. The movesets and EVs have been specifically calibrated to deal the most amount of damage to the largest group of potentially common opponents and typing threats for the Red/Blue generation metagame.
Tauros is popular Normal-typed Pokemon. It's a usual sight to see Tauros out in the 1st generation battlefield. There were no known abilities or equippable items back in the Red/Blue Pokemon games. Tauros's only type-related weakness is Fighting.
- Hyper Beam / Double-Edge
Physical Sweeper Tauros (Retro)
Tauros is an extraordinary Physical Sweeper. It's meant to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Out of the original 151, Tauros was quite something to try to play with in the first generation meta. Remember prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Double-Edge is a physical STAB-boosted 100-base power Normal-type move (has 1/4 recoil).
♦ Earthquake is a physical 100-base power Ground-type move that deals a notable amount of damage.
♦ Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
♦ Substitute is a status move (Tauros takes 1/4 its max hp to put in a substitute).

Sort and organize the learnset by move type, category, accuracy, and power. Bolded moves will gain the same-type attack bonus (STAB) if this Pokemon uses them.
These are a list of several common move combinations Tauros can perform in Red/Blue. Not every combo going to be game-changing, but some can be pretty fun to play with. Sometimes these can be easily overlooked or forgotten, hence why we find and list them here. Discover what items, abilities, and moves this Pokemon can use in combination with each other to gain a strategic advantage in competitive battles.
