In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, players can encounter, battle, and catch the powerful Lunar legendary Pokémon Cresselia. Cresselia is a Psychic-type Pokémon with a huge stat total. While it doesn’t have the best attack stats, it still has some pretty impressive moves.

Cresselia is a purely Psychic-type Pokémon, so most of its powerful attacks are also Psychic-type. This is because of S.T.A.B. (Same Type Attack Bonus), which gives Pokémon a boost to moves that are of the same typing as them. Cresselia’s best moves are Moonblast, Psychic, Psycho Cut, and Slash.
