Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Masquerain finds itself in the PU Tier of Competitive Battling. One unique niche that Masquerain has is access to the combination of Quiver Dance and Baton Pass. While Quiver Dance sets up its Speed and both Special Statistics, it is able to pass those off to an Ally with Baton Pass. Additionally, it has access to Water-Type moves, including Scald and Hydro Pump.

However, Masquerain isn't very fast without boosts, and in addition to having a low Defense, its biggest bane is Stealth Rock, which removes half of its HP if it enters while this entry hazard is in play. Anything that can stop Masquerain from setting up by using Haze or Taunt will stop its attempts to set up.
