Mega Ampharos is in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. With a very high base 165 Special Attack, solid all-around bulk, and access to good STAB attacks, Mega Ampharos is a decent bulky attacker. Its typing allows for it to check certain threats like Entei and Gyarados. Its best set is a RestTalk physically defensive set that can act as a pivot with Volt Switch and put Mega Ampharos's solid bulk to good use. It can also run an all-out attacker set and an Agility sweeper set if one wants to opt for a more offensive route. However, Mega Ampharos is very slow, meaning that its role as a bulky attacker is not that great of a niche. It also has a limited movepool, an ability that does not offer much for it in Mold Breaker, and numerous common checks in the tier such as Krookodile, Mega Swampert, and Mega Sceptile.
