 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Armaldo finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. While it has good defenses, Armaldo has a very high Attack, which is great for sweeping. Armaldo also has access to Rapid Spin for clearing away entry hazards, and it can use Stealth Rock as well.
The biggest problem that hurts Armaldo is a relatively low Special Defense, a weakness that can be preyed upon by special sweepers. Its low Speed really lets it down unless it has Trick Room support or is using Swift Swim, which makes it a dangerous sweeper. Plus, its sweeping prowess gets hampered if it takes a Burn.
