 Anime/Manga Information
A ginormous Claydol was unleashed in the episode Claydol, Big And Tall, but was eventually sealed in a ginormous stone Poké Ball. A coordinator used a Claydol in the episode Rhapsody In Drew, which was part of a successful effort as Robert would win the Grand Festival in that episode.
At the Battle Palace, Spenser used a Claydol in a battle against Ash. It quickly dispatched his Swellow, but lost to Sceptile after it learned Solarbeam during the course of the battle, ending the battle and earning Ash the Skill Symbol.
Claydol's Manga info is unknown at this time.
 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Claydol finds itself in the Under-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. While Claydol's defenses allow it to take hits, this is offset by relatively low HP and a lack of recovery outside of Rest, which is a bigger problem in the fifth Generation due to stronger attackers, particularly an attacker that uses moves from a type that it is weak to.
It certainly has its uses, most notably using Rapid Spin to clear away entry hazards, along with supporting its Allies. The only entry hazard that Claydol takes damage from is Stealth Rock, which is worth taking advantage of, and Claydol can use Stealth Rock as well. Ghost-Type Pokémon will be able to block Rapid Spin.
