 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Amoonguss is a part of the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With a great defensive typing that grants it the ability to take Electric, Water, and Grass attacks in the tier as well as absorb Toxic Spikes, Amoonguss can be a valuable team supporter. Its access to a great move in Spore allows it to cripple an opposing Pokémon, and other support moves like Stun Spore, Synthesis, and Foul Play allow it to not be easy set-up bait or be worn down too easily. Amoonguss's ability Regenerator allows for it to heal up when switching out and can give it great utility in Regenerator cores with a bulky Water-type like Alomomola or Slowking. Amoonguss's solid bulk also allows it to hold up well as a mixed wall. The biggest flaws in Amoonguss are its low Speed stat and certain common weaknesses to Psychic, Flying, Ice, and Fire attacks, leaving it vulnerable to threats like Sneasel, Delphox, and Sigilyph.
Amoonguss is usable in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling as well. Due to having Regenerator, access to Spore, and having good overall bulk thanks to a high HP stat and decent defenses, Amoonguss can find a niche for itself in UU. It acts as a solid defensive pivot in the tier that can use other support moves like Stun Spore and Foul Play to prevent itself from being too much of a sitting duck. Amoonguss's flaws lie in its weakness to common attacking types like Fire and Psychic and that it faces immense competition from Roserade, which can provide entry hazard support and has better Speed and Special Attack stats.
Amoonguss is also a viable option in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. It acts as a solid pivot due to its ability to check numerous threats in the tier, such as Keldeo, Breloom, Mega Diancie, and Azumarill. With a 100% accurate sleep move in Spore, Amoonguss can incapacitate a Pokémon and allow for another Pokémon to take advantage. Regenerator allows for it to heal up when switching out, meaning that its longevity on the field can last long. While a solid Pokémon to use in the tier, Amoonguss does faces competition from other defensive Grass-types, such as Mega Venusaur, Tangrowth, and Ferrothorn. Amoonguss is passive in nature and can be easy to switch into after it has put an opposing Pokémon to sleep and is excruciatingly slow.
