[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Altaria finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. While most fully evolved Dragon-Type Pokémon are utilized in a Sweeping role, Altaria is better known for its defenses but remains capable of running an offensive set after using Dragon Dance. The aforementioned defenses also give it a chance at running a support set.

Generally, most physical walls will do well against Altaria, but must be careful to avoid getting caught by a Fire Blast. Ice-Type attacks ruin Altaria, as it takes 4 times the damage from said moves.
