Cradily finds itself in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With great mixed defenses, a great ability in Storm Drain that allows for it to act as a Scald switch-in, and nice support moves in Stealth Rock and Recover, Cradily is a decent support option for a team to work with. With its unique defensive typing, Cradily can handle Water, Electric, and Normal-types, giving it the upper edge against Pokémon like Ludicolo, Lanturn, and Swellow. It can beat a number of entry hazard control Pokémon like Claydol, Kabutops, and Xatu, and it checks a lot of special attackers very well like Pyroar and Vivillon. These traits make it a wonderful pivot against a number of threats in the tier that can act as a glue Pokémon of sorts. However, Cradily has mediocre offensive prowess which can make it easy to switch into or set up on, especially with bulkier Pokémon like Weezing and Malamar. Its low Speed stat and numerous weaknesses to common attacking types can force it out often early-game, so Cradily needs to have good defensive synergy with its teammates or it will act as dead weight.
