Seismitoad is a part of the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With decent overall bulk and a great defensive typing, Seismitoad makes for a good Stealth Rock setter capable of handling Pokémon like Rhyperior and Aerodactyl. A great ability in Water Absorb grants it an immunity to Water-type attacks, while a good STAB combination and Sludge Wave to heavily damage Grass-types like Tangrowth can make Seismitoad a formidable offensive threat. Seismitoad's best set is an offensive Stealth Rock set that combines decent special attacking prowess with the ability to check specific threats. It can also run a physically defensive set that uses its well-rounded bulk to check strong physical attackers like Emboar with better effectiveness. A Substitute + Toxic wears down at certain bulky defensive Pokémon like Alomomola and Tangrowth that can otherwise be troublesome for Seismitoad. However, Seismitoad is not without flaws, as its x4 weakness to Grass attacks can be troublesome especially considering the ubiquity of Pokémon like Venusaur and Virizion.
Seismitoad is a viable option in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. Due to a great defensive typing and Water Absorb, Seismitoad is capable of differentiating itself from Swampert as a defensive Water-type. Good overall defensive stats and a solid support movepool consisting of Stealth Rock and Knock Off make it a good choice for a team. However, Seismitoad's defensive and offensive stats are inferior to Swampert's, so unless one is taking advantage of Seismitoad's coveted Water immunity, Swampert is usually the better choice on teams.
Seismitoad is also usable in the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. With a solid typing and ability in Water Absorb, Seismitoad can check numerous threats in the tier such as Mega Manectric, Rotom-W, and Mega Metagross without Grass Knot. Seismitoad can even run a rain sweeper set with Swift Swim and benefits from being one of two viable Swift Swim sweepers that cannot be crippled by Thunder Wave while having good overall coverage to hit common rain threats like Ferrothorn with Focus Blast. Despite these nice traits, Seismitoad is hampered by a Grass weakness that can be easily exploited by prevalent Grass-types like Mega Venusaur, Ferrothorn, and Amoonguss. Seismitoad also lacks reliable recovery and faces competition from Gastrodon as a bulky water, although Seismitoad can boast having good support moves in Stealth Rock and Knock Off.
