As one of the most iconic Pokemons, it means a lot of players of the game will try their best to get one in Pokemon GO. For anyone who is planning to use your own Rayquaza, you are suggested to use the right moves to get the effective moveset.
When talking about the Pokemon GO league battles, actually, Rayquaza is not that popular. This one is not included as a must have option. However, Rayquaza is quite impressive in the leagues such as the Ultra League. It is able to be a solid type of Dragon on the battle team.

Top Rayquaza best moveset in Pokemon Sword and Shield
In the game named Pokemon GO, moveset is always divided into two categories. The first one is defensive and the second one is offensive. The defensive ones are intended for holding gyms when you as a player meet a PvE version of the Pokemon that you get. Meanwhile, offensive is always the best default one. Besides, it is also the most effective one for the Pokemon GO battle league.
One of the options in Pokemon GO with a moveset that is a one size fits all is known as Rayquaza. It does not matter what activity is currently on going, it is a must to stick to the same moveset on Rayquaza.
Most players of the game want to use the Dragon Tail as the fast attack. The reason is because it does most damage. Another reason behind it being the most favorite one is because it has nearly the same energy per second earned. There is actually another option called Air Slash. It is the only one beside the Dragon Tail. If you compare the Air Slash to the Dragon Tail, you will notice why it is the most preferable. compared to Dragon Tail, Air Slash is less versatile.

As an alternative, you might want to use Ancient Power if you think that Rock is slightly better to use, even though it is an overall less effective move.
