Hariyama (ハリテヤマ) is the 49th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Fighting type, and is known as the Arm Thrust Pokémon.

Hariyama can have one of two Abilities: Thick Fat, which reduces the damage taken from Fire and Ice Type Attacks by 50%; or Guts, which increases the power of its physical attacks by 50% when induced with one of the five status conditions, and Attack won't be lowered as a result of being afflicted with a Burn. Its Hidden Ability is Sheer Force, which gives a 33% power increase to all moves that have a secondary effect, but those secondary effects are lost as a result of the increase in power.

Makuhita can evolve into Hariyama starting at Level 24.

Hariyama is in the Human-Like Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Hariyama 1,640,000 Experience Points at the most to reach Level 100.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Hariyama finds itself in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With Thick Fat, a massive HP stat, and a mono-Fighting typing, Hariyama finds itself as one of the best checks to threats like Magmortar, Abomasnow, and Shiftry. Assault Vest gives Hariyama a boost in its special bulk and makes it very adaptable for different teams due to its usefulness as a tank. With a great base 120 Attack stat, Hariyama can do some significant damage with STAB Close Combat and Knock Off. That trait allows for it to be a good Choice Band user that can hit much harder than the Assault Vest set and act as a nice wallbreaker. However, Hariyama cannot do much to the common Fighting-type checks other than remove their item through Knock Off, making it vulnerable to the common Fire and Flying types in the tier. Its bulk is undermined by a lack of reliable recovery, which rings especially for the Assault Vest set where it cannot run non-attacking moves but needs the extra bulk to hold up against the threats it's supposed to check. Its Speed stat is low and leaves it outsped by a large portion of the tier, including some defensive Pokémon in particular.

Hariyama is also a usable option in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. Thanks to Thick Fat and good bulk due in large part to a massive HP stat, Hariyama can be quite the tank that checks big threats in Sneasel and Houndoom among many others. Its good offensive typing and solid coverage in Knock Off and Heavy Slam allows for it to do some good damage to opposing teams. It runs a mixed bulk Assault Vest set that can be a very good asset for offensive teams that struggle with certain speedy threats like Sneasel. However, Hariyama is very slow and usually has to take a hit before retaliating. It also lacks reliable recovery as it lacks a STAB like Drain Punch, so it needs Wish support if it wants to stay healthy all throughout the match.
