Game Information

Competitive Battling

Kingdra resides in the Borderline 2 (BL2) tier of competitive battling, meaning that it is banned from the Rarelyused (RU) tier but not used enough to be officially a part of the Underused (UU) tier. In UU, Kingdra is capable of becoming a sweeper in numerous ways due to its many different set-up moves. Kingdra's best set in the tier is its CritDra set with Focus Energy and Scope Lens, which along with Sniper allows for Kingdra to do immense damage with critical attacks. It can remedy its somewhat average Speed with Agility, and its STABs are only resisted in the tier by Empoleon. Kingdra can also opt for a Dragon Dance set or a Rain Dance sweeper set with Swift Swim, both of which give Kingdra a different dimension in terms of its versatility. However, Kingdra is not without flaws, as it can usually be rather easily revenge killed due to its average Speed by Choice Scarf Dragon-types like Hydreigon while also making it hard for it to set-up. Kingdra also suffers from the presence of Fairy-types like Florges, which is extremely prominent in the tier and prevents Kingdra from spamming its Dragon-type attacks like it used to.

Kingdra is also a viable option in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. Due to having Swift Swim, Kingdra can become a fearsome wallbreaker and sweeper under rain provided by Drizzle Politoed. Kingdra's typing does not stack weaknesses on a rain team as it takes neutral damage from Electric and Grass-type attacks, unlike some of its other Swift Swim competition. Due to its attacking stats, Kingdra can opt for a mixed approach and surprise some special walls with an Outrage. Its best set is its Choice Specs set that can destroy many Pokémon with rain boosted Hydro Pumps and wear down checks and counters like Ferrothorn with Scald burns. Kingdra can also opt for a Life Orb set that can go mixed and has more freedom as to what moves it can make. Despite all these great traits, Kingdra does have somewhat underwhelming bulk, as it can usually not tank Talonflame's Brave Bird or Bisharp's Sucker Punch too well. Since rain can only last a maximum of eight turns, Kingdra is left to dry without it and can be rather exploitable without the luxury of rain.
