[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Durant is in the Under-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of competitive battling. Durant is one of the strongest sweepers in these tiers. With Hustle giving Durant's base 109 Attack stat a boost and Hone Claws giving it an extra boost as well as fixing the accuracy drop from Hustle, Durant became one of the most feared sweepers in a tier that is starved for physical walls. Durant's base 112 Defense and base 109 Speed ultimately pushed it over the top when combined with its sky-high Attack stat. Its biggest hindrances are a shallow movepool paired with a low Special Attack, and a low Special Defense makes it easy pickings for Special Sweepers that manage to outpace it.
