 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Accelgor is a part of the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With access to Spikes and a very high base 145 Speed, Accelgor can function as a great entry hazards lead, providing plenty of utility for a team to work with. Its movepool offers it a way to prevent entry hazard removal with Final Gambit and Encore to discourage set up sweepers from using it as set up bait. Accelgor can also run an offensive set due to its decent base 100 Special Attack to go along with its high Speed stat and solid coverage options in Focus Blast, Giga Drain, and Sludge Bomb, which allows for it to act as a late-game cleaner when pitted against weakened teams. It can even outspeed certain Choice Scarf users like Medicham with a Timid nature. However, Accelgor faces competition as a Spikes lead from Pokémon like Mega Glalie, Qwilfish, and Omastar. It is also very frail, meaning that its longevity on the field is short and can be prone to being taken out by priority attacks and fast Choice Scarf users.
Accelgor is also viable in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. It can act as a nice Spikes lead due to access to moves like Final Gambit and Encore, which allows for it to be able to not be easily taken advantage of. It outspeeds the majority of the Pokémon in the tier with the exception of Mega Aerodactyl, nearly guaranteeing itself the ability to lay down entry hazards on the opponent's side. Accelgor has a perk over Froslass as a Spikes lead in that it can take out Magic Bounce users like Espeon and Mega Absol with a Bug Buzz. Unfortunately for Accelgor, it has a severe lack of bulk which makes it hard for it to tank hits. It also is mostly outdone by Froslass, which has a Ghost-typing to block Rapid Spin, a better ability in Cursed Body, and more supportive options like Thunder Wave, Taunt, and Destiny Bond.
