 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Gothitelle is currently listed in the Borderline Tier of Competitive Battling. It has better Defenses than many other Psychic-Type Pokémon, but Shadow Tag separates it from many other Psychic-types. The ability to trap many defensive Pokemon and kill them led to something like Heracross or Darmanitan sweep. This ability to trap defensive Pokemon was seen as too broken for UnderUsed play and therefore was banned. In the Overused tier, Gothitelle can make an effective trapper against defensive Pokemon such as Gliscor or Tentacruel, making many Pokemon take advantage of the absence of walls that would stop it from wrecking havoc.
