Fletchinder is a part of the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With an excellent ability in Gale Wings which gives +1 priority to Flying moves like Acrobatics and Roost, Fletchinder can prove to be a great late-game cleaner and revenge killer. Swords Dance patches up Fletchinder's average Attack stat and it has a decent defensive typing which allows it to set up on Pokémon like Escavalier, Hitmontop, and Tangrowth. It can cripple opposing switch-ins like Rhyperior with a Will-O-Wisp as well. However, Fletchinder is rather frail and lacks great longevity especially considering its x4 weakness to Stealth Rock.
Fletchinder is also a viable option in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. With priority Acrobatics being the strongest priority attack in the tier and Swords Dance to back it up, Fletchinder is certainly capable of providing a team with revenge killing capabilities as well as the potential to sweep late-game. While it is limited in what it can do and is rather predictable, Fletchinder can carve out quite a nice niche for itself despite the prevalence of bulky Water-types in the tier. Unfortunately, Fletchinder suffers from being very frail and x4 weak to Stealth Rock, both of which mean that it cannot be easily switching into Pokémon.
