 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Rampardos boasts the highest Attack Statistic outside the Uber Tier and third highest Attack behind only Black Kyurem and Deoxys Attack Forme, but its defenses and Speed really let it down, relegating it to the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Its high Attack is a legitimate threat to sweep, especially with Trick Room support, but faster Pokémon--especially those that use Special Attacks--could easily defeat it in one hit.
