Feraligatr is in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. As one of the tier's most potent set-up sweeping threats, Feraligatr is a standout threat in the tier thanks to a good 105 base Attack and Sheer Force boosting many of its attacks, including Waterfall, Crunch, and Ice Punch, while not taking Life Orb recoil. Its Dragon Dance set makes it a big threat against offensive teams after a boost while its Swords Dance set makes it a potent wallbreaking Pokémon with the sheer power and decent overall bulk and typing to break through bulkier defensive teams. A priority move in Aqua Jet allows for the Swords Dance set to not be as easily picked off, while choosing Substitute gives it a great matchup against Scald users like Suicune that cannot break its Substitutes easily. However, Feraligatr does face competition from Gyarados as an offensive Water-type, although Feraligatr's ability to not be worn down as easily and access to Swords Dance give it notable niches over Gyarados. Feraligatr is also somewhat slow for an offensive Pokémon, which can leave it outsped even after a Dragon Dance boost by certain threats.
Feraligatr is also a viable option in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. Thanks to its access to Dragon Dance and a great ability in Sheer Force, Feraligatr has great sweeping capabilities in the tier. While Gyarados offers big competition due to its access to Intimidate, Feraligatr is not weak to Stealth Rock, allowing for it to not be as easily worn down. Feraligatr does suffer from a lackluster Speed tier before setting up which forces it to tank a hit before setting up, which can prove to be annoying when considering Feraligatr can be picked off by a strong priority attack or Choice Scarf user. It also has four-moveslot syndrome, as it has to pick between Ice Punch, Crunch, and Superpower to cover its bases against defensive threats while leaving it open for other Pokémon to wall it.
