Manga

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Froslass is a part of the Borderline 2 (BL2) tier of competitive battling, meaning that it is banned from the Rarelyused (RU) tier but not used enough to be a part of the Underused (UU) tier. With a high base 110 Speed, access to Spikes, and a Ghost-typing that can block Rapid Spin, Froslass is a great Pokémon for offensive teams. It can usually lay down one layer of Spikes thanks to its high base Speed, and its support movepool offers it more ways to help out a team with Taunt and Thunder Wave at its disposal. Froslass makes for a great suicide lead, and when it is knocked down to its Focus Sash, it can use Destiny Bond to pick off a specific threat. Froslass's only big flaw is its frailty especially after its Focus Sash has been broken.
