[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Cradily finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. It gets its best usage as a defensive wall, using support moves and setting up Stealth Rock. However, its bulk gives also gives it a chance at boosting its Attack with Swords Dance due to its aforementioned defensive prowess.

Because Cradily relies so much on setting up entry hazards and using support moves, Taunt stops its setup attempts cold, while Haze will remove any changes to its Statistics. Haze is the only reliable way to reset its Statistics as it can't be forced out if it's using the Suction Cups Ability. Despite its Defenses, repeated hits from Ice, Fighting, and Steel-Type moves will wear it down and bring it down. Other Defensively-inclined Pokémon will be able to bring it down--Cradily doesn't have the offensive prowess to beat them. Lastly, Cradily is horribly slow due to very low Speed.
