Misdreavus is listed in the PU tier of competitive battling. With a solid Ghost typing and nice bulk with Eviolite, Misdreavus can check a number of common threats like Monferno, Bouffalant, and Arbok. It is versatile in what it can do, as it can run both defensive and offensive sets, allowing for it to stand out. It has a fast Taunt and Will-O-Wisp, allowing for it to have the potential to break through balanced cores. Useful immunities to Spikes and Toxic Spikes thanks to Levitate allow for it to stay relatively healthy, and it can block Rapid Spin thanks to its Ghost-typing. Misdreavus is best used as a defensive support Pokémon that can spread status and act as a nice check to a number of physical threats. It can also run a Nasty Plot set that gives it sweeping potential with decent output after a boost and solid coverage options in Thunderbolt and Dazzling Gleam. However, Misdreavus is hampered greatly by its relatively low damage output when concerning defensive sets or when unboosted with the offensive set. Misdreavus also is reliant on Eviolite, which prevents it from holding Leftovers and makes it susceptible to being worn down due to its best form of recovery being Pain Split. It also does not like being hit by Knock Off, as it is super effective and will remove its Eviolite, making it a subpar check to Pokémon that commonly run the move like Dodrio.
Misdreavus is also a viable option in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. While it faces competition from its evolution Mismagius, Misdreavus boasts superior bulk thanks to Eviolite, allowing it to function as a better defensive check to the likes of Hitmonchan, Tauros, and Primeape. Unlike Mismagius, Misdreavus is not as prone to being hit hard by a coverage attack that a Rapid Spin user tries to throw at it like Kabutops's Stone Edge and Claydol's Psyshock, making it a better spinblocker in certain cases. It still has enough Speed to outspeed Defog users and Taunt them to prevent them from removing entry hazards. However, Misdreavus is extremely vulnerable to Knock Off, which prevents it from checking certain Pokémon that other Ghost-types that run a Colbur Berry can, such as Hariyama and Zangoose. Outside of its evolution, it faces competition from Rotom and Gourgeist-XL as both boast much more resistances than it which allows for them to handle a wider range of threats. Misdreavus relies heavily on the combination of Will-O-Wisp and Hex to deal damage to opposing foes, which is problematic when matched up against foes that can easily switch into both moves like Pyroar and Choice Specs Swellow.
