 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Castform finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling as a result of low Statistics overall. The only thing that it does well is use Weather Ball after a weather condition has been set up, or one that it sets up on its own. It doesn't perform well in the Metagame other than that, save for using weather-based combinations.
Survive its attacks and it is relatively easy to defeat.
