Gender Differences

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Cofagrigus finds itself as a viable option in the Under-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. In addition to having solid Defense Statistics, its Mummy Ability can be very disruptive, especially for Pokémon that rely on their Abilities to perform at their best. It also has access to a variety of support moves such as Trick Room and Haze, and its typing allows it to block Rapid Spin, preventing removal of entry hazards. It is a very versatile Pokemon both defensively and offensively, and its typing helps it wall certain Pokemon. Regardless the tier, Dark-Type Pokémon and/or Pokémon that use Taunt are capable of shutting Cofagrigus down.
