Mandibuzz is part of the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. With a great typing and sturdy 110/105/95 defenses, Mandibuzz makes for a good defensive Pokémon that can check numerous threats like Chandelure, Shaymin, and Krookodile. With access to many great utility moves, such as Knock Off, Taunt, Defog, and U-turn, Mandibuzz can act as a great team supporter capable of gaining momentum for a team, chipping down at opposing foes, or removing entry hazards from the field. It also has access to a reliable recovery move in Roost to keep itself from being worn down too easily. Due to its Speed being higher than many other defensive Pokémon, Mandibuzz can act as a good stallbreaker with Taunt and Toxic to prevent defensive Pokémon from healing up and wearing them down. As a Defog user, Mandibuzz has good matchups against certain Stealth Rock setters, like Krookodile, Mega Swampert, and Nidoqueen. Due to its balanced defensive stats, Mandibuzz can invest in special defense or physical defense to pick what specific Pokémon it can counter. However, Mandibuzz is weak to Stealth Rock which undermines its defensive capabilities quite a bit.
Mandibuzz is also a viable option in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. Due to a unique typing, good movepool, and nice defensive stats, Mandibuzz can perform the role of a mixed wall very well. It can check numerous huge threats in the tier such as Breloom and Gengar, which are Pokémon that can give defensive teams a lot of trouble. Mandibuzz has many good moves at its disposal, such as a reliable recovery move in Roost, a strong STAB move in Foul Play that can dent physical attackers very hard, and Defog to remove entry hazards. Unfortunately, Mandibuzz is weak to Stealth Rock which can make its ability to check some threats very shaky. It also does not appreciate the presence of some very common Mega Evolutions like Mega Sableye and Mega Diancie.
