Competitive Battling

Shuckle resides 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. Shuckle's only niche is to act as an entry hazard lead thanks to its access to the highly valued Sticky Web as well as Stealth Rock. With Sturdy and a Mental Herb, Shuckle can guarantee itself the ability to set up one form of entry hazard without being shut down by Taunt. Shuckle's high defensive stats allow for it to be able to usually set up both forms of entry hazards, making it very useful for hyper offense teams. Great support moves in Knock Off and Encore add to Shuckle's ability to be a good utility Pokémon. However, Shuckle is held back by its very low Speed and utter lack of offensive prowess, both of which can be detrimental when acting as an entry hazard lead.
