Go Hub Database DPS calculator (Absol)

I use Go Hub Database as my primary source when determining what pokemon to catch and level up; it really is an amazing resource.

I have always understood the logic and calculations supporting the page, but one entry has always bothered me. For Shadow Absol the highest DPS and TDO move set is Snarl and Payback, but for Absol the highest DPS and TDO move set is Snarl and Dark Pulse. The DPS*DPE for DP is 42.67 and 45.45 for payback, let alone Payback has a 2.2 second cooldown every hundred energy vs 3 second every 50 so it should be easier to dodge. What is going on here, why does it recommend Dark Pulse?

Note I love Absol and my secret agenda is that I want it to be better for raiding and reach its max potential haha.

Ooh that’s an interesting question. Not sure wether I can answer that, but I’ll try to think of something

Does anyone else have an idea?
