 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Jellicent is a part of the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With a unique typing that allows for it to check many threats such as Flygon and Mega Glalie, Jellicent is a good defensive Pokémon in the tier. Its ability to not be easy set-up bait due to moves like Scald, Will-O-Wisp, and Taunt allow for it to be an annoyance against many Pokémon in the tier. It can perform a stallbreaker role relatively well thanks to the Taunt and Will-O-Wisp combination, and if it opts for Hex, Jellicent can wear down at Pokémon relentlessly. Reliable recovery in Recover and a secondary Ghost-typing that can allow for it to block Rapid Spin are just a few more traits as to why Jellicent makes for an effective Pokémon in the tier. Jellicent is not perfect, though, as its weakness to moves like Knock Off and Pursuit can be highly problematic, with the former being a common coverage move among Fighting-types and the latter being potentially fatal when pitted against Pokémon like Sneasel.
Jellicent is also a viable option in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. With a typing that allows for it to check Pokémon like Entei, Jellicent can act as a great defensive Water-type. Water Absorb is a great ability that gives Jellicent the ability to switch into other bulky Water-types like Suicune and Empoleon with no fear. Great overall bulk and access to reliable recovery are also traits that make Jellicent a formidable defensive Pokémon. However, Jellicent's weakness to Knock Off is annoying as Pokémon like Heracross and Mienshao can easily use it to take away Jellicent's Leftovers and heavily damage it in the process. Jellicent also is a bit slow to Taunt certain Pokémon effectively, even though it is still a good user of the move.
