 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Dusclops is listed in the Under-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. With the addition of Eviolite, Dusclops' solid defenses become an even bigger strength, making for a great mixed wall. Despite its slow speed it can provide Trick Room support to other teammates that benefit from such support, and it also has access to Status Condition moves such as Will-O-Wisp.
Dusclops isn't the best spinblocker in the 5th Generation Metagame, and its Offensive stats are considerably lacking. Additionally, despite its great defenses its HP is considerably low.
