[edit] Competitive Battling

Ferrothorn is in the OU (OverUsed) Tier of competitive battling as of this writing. Ferrothorn is quite possibly the best mixed wall in the OU Tier and, as such, has been a consistent top 10 usage performer since the start of competitive battling in Generation V. Ferrothorn seemed to be made to stop the many Dragon types and bulky Waters in the tier. Strong attackers that Ferrothorn is capable of walling include, but is not limited to, Starmie, Politoed, Gyarados, Rotom-W, and Haxorus. Ferrothorn is also one of the few defensive Pokémon in OU that can also provide its own offense as STAB moves from a base 94 Attack stat will still leave their mark on what they're targetting.
