Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Qwilfish is a part of the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With a great defensive typing that is well complemented by Intimidate, Qwilfish can act as a defensive stop to many threats in the tier, such as Escavalier, Hitmonlee, and Emboar. It has numerous utility moves at its disposal like Spikes, Toxic Spikes, Thunder Wave, and Taunt. For a defensive Pokémon, Qwilfish sits at a decent Speed tier, capable of outspeeding Scrafty and Emboar. It can even run a decent suicide Spikes lead set due to its access to moves like Taunt and Explosion to prevent Defoggers and Rapid Spin users from getting rid of its hazards as well as other entry hazard leads from setting up their hazards. Qwilfish's biggest flaw is its paltry Special Defense, meaning that it cannot hold up against the majority of special attacking threats in the tier. Qwilfish also lacks reliable recovery, which means that it can be worn down quite easily.

Qwilfish is also a viable option in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. Due to its physical defense being bolstered by Intimidate, Qwilfish acts as a great check to many threatening Pokémon in the tier, such as Entei, Mienshao, and Heracross. With tons of utility moves in its disposal like Spikes, Toxic Spikes, Thunder Wave, and Taunt, Qwilfish can act as quite the sufficient team supporter. It has semi-reliable recovery in Pain Split to keep itself healthy as well. One can even opt for a more offensive Swift Swim set that acts as a ruthless wallbreaker and sweeper with Swords Dance, STAB attacks in Waterfall and Poison Jab, and Explosion to soften up walls to the point where other dedicated rain sweepers can take those Pokémon out. However, Qwilfish suffers from a lackluster Special Defense stat that leaves it vulnerable to many special attacking threats. It also can be worn down quite easily, especially considering that it switches into moves like Knock Off and U-turn quite often. Qwilfish also has four-moveslot syndrome and cannot use all of its utility moves as a result.
