III. Pokemon Weakness(es) vs. Dewgong
Before we go any further, please take a minute to consider the following. Most of this guide is focused on dealing high amounts of damage in a short period of time, in order to beat Dewgong as quickly as possible.

However, it is important to note that defensive Type weaknesses play an important role in Pokemon Go battles as well.
First off, Dewgong can deal a great amount of damage using Frost Breath and Blizzard. This is especially true if you are using Pokemon that are weak against these Move Type(s). The damage per second and ranking of this moveset is shown below.
High DPS Moveset for Dewgong:
Move:Frost BreathBlizzard
Move Type:IceIce
Category:Fast Charge
Rank (DPS):#47#22
DPS (w/ STAB):13.932.1

Dewgong is capable of using the following Moves:
Dewgong Fast Moves:Dewgong Charge Moves:
Frost BreathIce ShardAqua JetBlizzardIcy Wind
Sec:0.81 sec1.4 secSec:2.35 sec3.9 sec3.8 sec
While Frost Breath and Blizzard is a strong Moveset, most of Dewgong's Moves will deal additional damage if used against certain Types of Pokemon as they will take increased damage from Dewgong. Depending on the particular Moveset of the Dewgong you are battling against, you will want to try and avoid using Pokemon of the following Types.
MoveXDewgong Moves are Super Effective Against
Frost Breath
Ice Shard
Aqua Jet
Icy Wind
On the other hand, there are certain Types of Pokemon in Pokemon Go, that will take less damage from the Moves of Dewgong. Therefore, to survive longer during Gym battles you will want to try and use Pokemon of the below Types when battling against Dewgong.
MoveDewgong Moves are Not Very Effective Against
Frost Breath
Ice Shard
Aqua Jet
Icy Wind
It is important to note that this is not the only factor in choosing the optimal Pokemon to defeat Dewgong. If you have a Pokemon with much higher CP and a high damage Moveset vs. Dewgong you will obviously want to use that Pokemon. You will be able to win the battle quickly before your opponent has even had a chance to deal much damage.

However, if you are using a Pokemon with average CP and an average moveset, choosing the right Type of Pokemon becomes much more important.
IV. Benefits of Type Weakness & STAB Damage
Getting back to the offensive side of battling, the next step is to identify which Pokemon have the capability of using Super Effective Moves against Dewgong.

Furthermore, we must identify Pokemon that are the same Type as the Moves they are using. This will result in an added 25% additional damage bonus, commonly referred to as STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus).
If you are new to Pokemon Go or to the damage mechanics in general, be sure to review the chart below before making your way to Section V. (Best Pokemon Movesets vs. Dewgong). It explains how Pokemon Go DB determines the best damage Moveset/Pokemon to beat Dewgong.
