[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Mandibuzz is currently in the Rarely-Utilized, Under-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. It's combination of high HP, defenses, and decent Speed allow Mandibuzz to be one of the better Special Walls in these three tiers. With a Taunt that can usually outspeed other defensive Pokémon in the tier, Toxic to wear down the opponent, and Roost to recover her own health, Mandibuzz can be a pain in the neck for slower, defensive teams that lack a Steel type. However, a weakness to Stealth Rock, lack of offensive power, and weakness to the common BoltBeam coverage combination hold Mandibuzz back from higher tiers.
