Druddigon's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Druddigon is in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With a great Attack stat and above average defenses, Druddigon can act as a nice support Pokémon or a strong offensive threat. Its wide movepool allows for it to beat Pokémon that can take on its Dragon STAB like Fairy-types, although some support is needed for it to use it effectively. With support options like Stealth Rock, Glare, and Dragon Tail, Druddigon can provide some very nice support. Its best set is a defensive support set that can take on physical attackers while full investment, and with Rocky Helmet and Rough Skin, Druddigon can punish physical attackers with a significant chunk of passive damage. Druddigon can also run an all-out attacker set with a Life Orb and Sheer Force to boost vital attacks like Fire Punch, Iron Tail, and Gunk Shot, which can hit Pokémon that resist or are immune to its Dragon STAB brutally hard. Druddigon also has priority in Sucker Punch to pick off faster threats. Druddigon's main flaw is that it is very slow, making it so that it can be rather easily revenge killed. Its matchup against a number of entry hazard removers is not very favorable, as it loses to common ones like Flygon. Druddigon lacks reliable recovery which hinders its overall longevity. With Fairy-types like Granbull and Diancie restricting the ability for it to freely spam its Dragon STAB and common Ice-types like Sneasel, Mega Glalie, and Abomasnow threatening it, Druddigon can be pressured quite a bit and forced into bad situations.
Druddigon is also usable in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. While overshadowed by other physical Dragon-types like Tyrantrum and Haxorus, Druddigon manages to find a niche as a Stealth Rock setter, having the nice resistances that come with the Dragon-typing while providing valuable utility to a team. It can act as a nice lure against Fairy-types with a Roseli Berry thanks to its access to Sheer Force-boosted Gunk Shot. Druddigon can also choose Mold Breaker to bypass Magic Bounce users like Mega Absol from bouncing back Stealth Rock. However, Druddigon's main flaws lie in its Speed and lack of reliable recovery, which makes it easy to wear down and threaten.
