 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Crustle is a viable option in the Rarely-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Like many other Rock-types, it has a high Attack and higher Defense, but is hindered by low Speed and a relatively low Special Defense. The Sturdy Ability is the best possible competitive battling option due to its use for team support, especially for setting up entry hazards such as Stealth Rock and Spikes. With Trick Room support, Crustle becomes a very dangerous sweeper. But the time it has to set up these hazards is limited, especially against Special Sweepers and/or if matched up against a Bulky Water-Type.
