There, the leader of the Sharpedo group was trapped and challenged to battle, but faltered due to the effects of being poisoned by the Poison Tail attack of Jessie's Seviper. Brock spent the night nursing it back to health, earning the respect of the Sharpedo group.
Sharpedo's Manga info is unknown at this time.
 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Sharpedo finds itself in the Under-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling thanks to its Hidden Ability, Speed Boost. Combining that with a high Attack makes it a dangerous threat to cause a lot of damage. Its Special Attack is pretty high in its own right, allowing for a Mixed Sweeper set as well.
Sharpedo does retain one serious flaw: very low Defenses. Even with the Speed Boost Ability, it is still vulnerable to Priority Moves, especially Mach Punch, for example. Paralysis hinders its Speed, and if it gets Confused, it could potentially cause a lot of damage to itself due to the extreme disparity between its Attack and Defense. Any strong attacker that can withstand Sharpedo's offensive barrage and deal a strong enough blow to defeat it can counter it.
