[edit] Competitive Battling

Solrock finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. It has a similar deal to Lunatone in the metagame, but it has a better Attack whereas Lunatone has a better Special Attack. It can also use a couple viable movesets that Lunatone could use in a similar manner to Lunatone [Trick Room or Baton Passing speed boosts from Rock Polish], but by using Physical attacks instead.

Solrock also suffers from the same flaws as Lunatone in terms of less-than-stellar defenses, type weakness and strategies. including shutting down its support options with Taunt.
