 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Braviary is in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With solid neutral coverage, decent bulk, and a good base 123 Attack stat, Braviary is capable of functioning as a very well-rounded threat. Its ability Defiant allows for it to punish Defog users by getting an Attack boost while benefiting from Intimidate users as well. Its best set is a Substitute + Bulk Up set that invests a decent chunk in Special Defense to allow for it to set up on weaker walls and become an effective stallbreaker as a result. A physical attacker set with either a Choice Band or Sharp Beak is another option that allows for Braviary to take advantage of its powerful attacks in Brave Bird and Return while having coverage in Superpower to blast Rock and Steel-types. Lastly, a Choice Scarf set acts as a decent revenge killer and pivot with U-turn. Braviary's biggest flaw is its Speed stat, which is less than stellar and falls short of the likes of Mega Glalie, Meloetta, and Rotom-C. It also can struggle to get by Rock and Steel-types without Superpower and bulky defensive walls like Alomomola can give it problems if using the offensive set. It also has a weakness to Stealth Rock and not very many resistances to work with, making it hard for it to fit in on teams at times.
