 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Ferroseed is in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With a unique defensive typing that gives it nine resistances and one immunity as well as Eviolite boosted defenses, Ferroseed is capable of walling some of the tier's biggest threats, such as Samurott, Kabutops, and Ludicolo. It is a reliable entry hazard setter due to great bulk and can set up either Spikes or Stealth Rock. Its ability Iron Barbs punishes physical attackers that use contact moves like Scyther and Barbaracle. A low Speed stat can also work in its favor somewhat as it gives it a usable STAB in Gyro Ball to hit faster foes. However, it has a crippling weakness to Fire-type attacks as well as a weakness to the common Fighting-type attacks. That makes it easy to lure as Pokémon commonly run coverage attacks to hit Ferroseed very hard. It also relies on Leech Seed to recover its health and its attacks are commonly resisted or not powerful enough for it to not be set up bait for Substitute users.
Ferroseed is a viable option in the Rarelyused (RU) tier as well. Thanks to its Eviolite boosted bulk and great typing, Ferroseed can wall some significant Pokémon in the tier, from Aerodactyl to Diancie. It has a valuable support move in Spikes which can prove to be very handy given its limited distribution in the lower tiers. Leech Seed and Thunder Wave are other supportive moves that can annoy opposing Pokémon or cripple them. Ferroseed does have its flaws, though, as it is severely weak to Fire and Fighting attacks. It needs to rely on Leech Seed or Wish support to recover its health and it will be very much crippled if it loses its Eviolite. Ferroseed also lacks great offensive prowess and can be taken advantage of by Taunt and Substitute users.
Ferroseed is also a part of the Little Cup (LC) tier of competitive battling due to being a first-stage Pokémon. With the ability to stack entry hazards and act as a reliable wall, Ferroseed is a very good support Pokémon. It only truly competes with Dwebble and Trubbish as an entry hazard support Pokémon. With a great defensive typing, it can check set up sweepers like Tirtouga. However, it has some weaknesses that leave it vulnerable to threats like Pawniard and Scraggy. It also lacks great offensive prowess and does not appreciate its Eviolite being lost due to Knock Off.
