 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Genesect currently resides in the Uber tier, due to its expansive special attacking movepool and lethal power after a Download boost. With a Choice Scarf, Genesect can revenge kill and threaten many common Pokemon with U-turn, Ice Beam, Flamethrower, and Iron Head. While hampered by its base 99 speed, which leaves it to be outsped many other Pokémon while not utilizing a Choice Scarf, it is a very good Pokémon that can revenge kill Pokemon from Rayquaza to Mewtwo.
