 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Gabite is a viable option in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. It's typing, stats and type coverage with moves of its dual-typing make it an offensive threat physically. With the right support it can be a major offensive threat, but it doesn't have any moves that would boost its Speed, and without Eviolite it's easier to beat. With or without Eviolite Gabite is still prone to being revenge-KO'd.
