You can dodge by swiping left and right. To perform a basic attack, tap the screen. Special attacks can be executed by pressing and holding the screen when the skill meter fills up.

Also, CP isn't everything. Pokemon types are sort of like rock-paper-scissors. Here is a chart with their strengths and weaknesess:

Lines going out are what they're effective against. For example, Fire type Pokemon are strong against Bug, Ice and Steel type Pokemon and weak against Water, Rock and Ground type Pokemon.
