Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Sharpedo finds itself in the Borderline 2 (BL2) tier of competitive battling, meaning that it is banned from the Rarelyused (RU) tier but not used enough to be a part of the Underused (UU) tier. While overshadowed by its Mega Evolution, Sharpedo still retains a niche due to Speed Boost which can increase Sharpedo's Speed stat with each turn, a luxury that Mega Sharpedo lacks. This allows for Sharpedo to act as a decent cleaner with a Life Orb and its STAB attacks in Waterfall and Crunch. It can even use Destiny Bond to surprise a foe that it cannot take out on its own. However, Sharpedo suffers from having atrocious bulk, and priority attacks like Entei's Extreme Speed can knock it out with some prior damage. Sharpedo is usually forced to use Protect in order to gain a speed boost, and it is somewhat reliant on entry hazard support to nab certain KOs. While Sharpedo can perform a bit of a mixed attacking set with physical STABs and Ice Beam for coverage, Mega Sharpedo eclipses it with a stronger STAB Crunch and much better bulk to take priority attacks.
