Aurorus is in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. It has a great offensive movepool to work with and two amazing abilities in Refrigerate and Snow Warning that give different degrees of offensive utility, with the former giving Aurorus a powerful STAB in Hyper Voice while the latter gives Aurorus the ability to fire off 100% accurate Blizzards. Its access to Freeze-Dry allows for it to break bulky defensive cores that rely on resistances rather than sheer bulk, doing significant damage to certain Water-types like Lanturn and Gastrodon. It has great coverage thanks to its movepool which offers Earth Power, which is a great coverage move that gives it neutral coverage against the majority of the tier. Its best set is a Choice Specs wallbreaker set that tears apart at opposing foes with powerful attacks, but another viable set is a Stealth Rock Focus Sash set that can act as a great suicide lead, matching up well against certain entry hazard removers and Xatu. However, Aurorus has a mediocre defensive typing which gives it weaknesses to Fighting, Water, Grass, and Ground attacks. Its Speed stat is also poor, leaving it as something that can be easily revenge killed by a powerful super effective attack.
Aurorus is also viable in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. Thanks to an amazing ability in Refrigerate that gives Normal-type attacks incredible power and allows for them to function as an Ice STAB for Aurorus, it can make for a decent offensive threat. It has a niche over certain other wallbreakers like Exploud in that it can support a team with Stealth Rock or use Rock Polish to potentially sweep the opponent. Nearly every Defog user is threatened by Aurorus, allowing for it to function well as a Stealth Rock setter. It can clean up offensive teams with a Rock Polish boost due to great power and coverage attacks. Unfortunately, Aurorus has a very poor defensive typing that leaves it with 6 weaknesses. It also has a subpar Speed stat which limits its opportunities to set up or switch into attacks. Aurorus struggles mightily with Steel-types like Escavalier and Bronzong, which can shrug off its attacks and retaliate with a x4 super effective STAB attack.
