Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Delphox resides in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With a good STAB combination that hits many bulky Pokémon in the tier relatively hard and a well-rounded movepool that gives it multiple offensive coverage moves and different sets to play with, Delphox is a very good offensive threat in the tier. It can run an offensive Calm Mind set that can boost its solid 114 Special Attack to even more threatening levels while having sufficient coverage in Fire Blast, Psychic, and Grass Knot. Delphox is also a good Choice Scarf user as it can revenge kill numerous threats like Virizion and Scrafty with its STABs or coverage moves like Dazzling Gleam. However, Delphox suffers in regard to its mediocre bulk and weakness to Stealth Rock, which makes its longevity relatively short. It also has an unfortunate weakness to Dark-type attacks, meaning that it is vulnerable to the common Sucker Punch and Knock Off, and that it can be Pursuit trapped by a faster threat like Sneasel. Its Speed stat, while good, does not allow for it to outspeed without a Choice Scarf common threats like Virizion and Aerodactyl. It cannot get around Houndoom, a common threat that is immune to both of Delphox's STABs and can take advantage of its presence.
