[edit] Competitive Battling

Bouffalant is a viable option in the Rarely-Utilized, Under-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. In addition to having a high Attack, it also has a strong bulk that is well-balanced. Plus, both of its Normal Abilities have their own viability, either on offense (Reckless) or defense (Sap Sipper). Its low Speed is its biggest hindrance, but it can still stampede through the competition, especially with good team support.
