[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Seismitoad is listed in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling due to a movepool that is lacking. What hurts it more than anything is that it cannot use Ice Beam, which really limits what it can cover. It can learn Ice Punch and Icy Wind in Black 2 and White 2 by way of Move Tutors, but neither are as powerful as Ice Beam.
