Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Aegislash currently resides in the Ubers tier. In Ubers, Aegislash is not the dominant force it was in OU, but can still function well with correct support. Despite its titanic offenses, Aegislash struggles to set-up in a metagame in which there are strong hard-hitting Pokemon, and when some of the biggest threats in Ho-Oh, Yveltal, and Primal Groudon can switch into it with impunity, it is less than stellar. Aegislash is therefore reglated to a more defensive role, and has a significant niche in being one of the most solid Xerneas counters in the metagame along with being capable of Pursuit trapping Latios and Latias. Aegislash also has a distinction of being one of few defensive Pokemon that can escape from Mega Gengar by virtue of its Ghost-typing, which makes it less vulnerable to being taken out than other solid Xerneas counters.
