Consider changing the way you calculate the best moveset. Solar Beam is actually the better charge move, despite having lower dps. Here is the math.

For both charge attacks, it takes 15 fast attacks to get 100 energy. This takes ~10s. Add 2.8s for Power Whip and 4.9s for Solar beam. Here are the results:
Solar Beam: 14.65s, 281.25 dmg (after STAB) -> 19.2 dps
Power Whip: 12.55s, 218.75 dmg (after STAB) -> 17.4 dps

So, even though Power Whip has higher dps by itself, we realize that's a useless stat because you can't just spam a charge attack.

Thank you Colin! I've been trying to get them to change their "ideal movesets" too.

Cot one from egg. 900+cp

Power whip actually has another advantage with shorter animation time, it is easier for attackers to time their move (dodging)

Caught one with CP 1692 and 95.5% IV. I'm still a bit shocked at the size of it.
