Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Kartana is in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling, where it stands out as amongst the best Pokémon in the tier. With a colossal base 181 Attack and a solid 109 Speed stat, Kartana is a standout threat that is very difficult to counter defensively. Thanks to a Grass/Steel typing and a high Defense stat, Kartana is capable of taking a few physical hits and only has two weaknesses. Its typing is decent offensively, especially considering how it can pair Sacred Sword with its attacks to have decent overall coverage. Beast Boost is an incredible ability that makes defensive counterplay against Kartana very difficult once it starts accumulating Attack boosts. Kartana's best set is a Swords Dance set that allows for Kartana to boost its Attack to monstrous heights. With a powerful STAB in Leaf Blade as well as coverage in Sacred Sword to smash opposing foes, Kartana has the tools to threaten opposing foes with its power. Both Leaf Blade and Sacred Sword can be turned into one-time nukes with a Z-Move. Fightinium Z would allow for Kartana to tear apart would-be defensive nuisances like Magearna, Celesteela, and Mega Scizor, while Grassium Z provides a destructive one-time nuke against the likes of Landorus-T and Toxapex. It can also opt for Defog, Smart Strike, or Knock Off, with the former providing entry hazard removal support while the latter two provide Kartana the ability to get through Pokémon that would give it problems otherwise such as Mega Venusaur and Zapdos. Kartana can also use a Choice Scarf set that serves as a good revenge killer as well as potential cleaner thanks to Beast Boost. Kartana has some glaring flaws with its extremely poor Special Defense and HP stats, both of which undermine its bulk heavily. However, those flaws mean little in comparison to the incredible offensive presence that Kartana can bring to a team.
