Pokemon Go is a very popular mobile game in our country lately. We wanted to draw attention to a detail that trainers who want to have stronger Pokemon should know about Pokemon attacks. This page explains what the abbreviations DPS (Damage Per Second), EPS (Energy Per Second) and TDO (Total Damage Output) stand for.
What is DPS?
Damage Per Second, called DPS, is an indicator of how powerful and efficient the move is to defeat another Pokemon in Gym battles. The higher the DPS of the move, the stronger the move.
What is EPS?
Energy Per Second, called EPS, is a gauge assigned to fast moves to see how fast the sprint can fill the energy bar spent using the charging move.
What is TDO?
TDO stands for total damage dealt. A measure of the total damage a Pokémon deals in a given battle. TDO is calculated by taking a Pokémon’s DPS and multiplying it by the time it will survive.
How to learn DPS, EPS and TDO?
To find out the DPS and EPS values, you need to use a database site related to Pokemon Go. With this information, you can get the right attack type for the Pokemon you have with the attack modifier. So you can have the strongest version of that Pokemon.
Favorite sites you can use for this are:
DPS is more important in raids. You fight against the clock and you have to deal as much damage as possible as quickly as possible. Your strongest, heavy hitters are your best bet in a raid. Also, the more damage you deal, the more Pokéballs you get for you and your teammates.
DPS is less important in gym battles. If your revivals or potions are low, it’s not a bad idea to get a bulkier Pokemon to do the job. Since the Pokemon you’ll encounter are much less beefy than you’ll find in raids, you can use Pokemon with lighter hits.
