Dragalge is a part of the Borderline 2 (BL2) tier of competitive battling, meaning that it is not used enough to be a part of the Underused (UU) tier but too broken to be a part of the Rarelyused (RU) tier. In UU, Dragalge has great STAB coverage with Draco Meteor and Sludge Wave covering all but the Steel-types in the tier. Thanks to having Adaptability as an ability to boost its STAB moves further, Dragalge becomes a strong wallbreaker that has good enough coverage to hit the majority of the tier with strong attacks. Dragalge's good defensive typing and bulk allow for it to gain switch in opportunities and retaliate with its powerful attacks. Dragalge's best set is its wallbreaker set that can opt for Choice Specs to maximize the power of Draco Meteor while being able to hit Steel-types with Focus Blast or a Dragon Fang to still boost Draco Meteor while giving Dragalge more freedom in its attack choice and allowing it to run Toxic Spikes. However, Dragalge does suffer from the fact that it is relatively slow and is weak to common moves like Earthquake and Ice Beam. Dragalge is also vulnerable to Stealth Rock and Spikes, which can wear down Dragalge considerably when it has to switch in.
Dragalge is also a viable option in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. Dragalge can find a solid niche in the tier due to its typing offering the ability to act as a strong tank, being able to handle threats like Keldeo, Mega Charizard Y, Mega Venusaur, Thundurus, Clefable, and Gengar. Thanks to Adaptability and its secondary Poison typing, Dragalge can act as a strong wallbreaking threat that can power through Fairy-types unlike other Dragon-types like Latios. Dragalge can also run a Toxic Spikes set that gives it good overall utility by wearing down at opposing foes. The most prominent Dragalge sets are its offensive Toxic Spikes set that acts as a strong tank while providing great utility, a specially defensive set that can act as a good reliable check to specific threats in the tier while still having the utility of Toxic Spikes, and a Choice Specs set that is all about raw power. Dragalge does suffer, however, from having common weaknesses to Ice, Psychic, and Ground attacks. It is also very slow, leaving it outsped by the majority of the tier and forcing it to tank a hit before it can retaliate.
