 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Suicune resides in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. Suicune is one of the tier's best Pokémon with amazing defensive stats and good defensive typing, making it one of the premier walls in Underused. Suicune makes for an great check or counter to the majority of the physical threats in the tier as a result of these defensive traits. Suicune can bolster its offensive prowess with Calm Mind and can run its famous CroCune set to provide defensive utility while having the potential to sweep. Suicune can use Roar to phase sweepers like Swords Dance Feraligatr and prevent other set up sweepers to take advantage of Suicune's initial lack of offensive prowess. Suicune can also take a more offensive approach with a Substitute + Calm Mind set or an offensive Calm Mind set with three attacks or Tailwind to compensate for Suicune's lack of speed. Suicune's only real downfall is its lack of power and reliance on Scald to do damage, but it is a phenomenal Pokémon otherwise.
Suicune is also a viable option in the Overused (OU) tier, where the traits that made it shine in Underused apply in Overused as well. Suicune is capable of handling some big threats in the tier, such as Weavile, Mega Metagross, and Heatran. Defensive teams have trouble with Suicune due to Pressure draining the PP of defensive Pokemon that would otherwise outlast Suicune. Suicune does struggle in Overused despite being a decent option for balanced teams as the metagame favors strong, fast threats. It is incredibly one dimensional, either choosing to use a defensive set with Roar or Calm Mind. Suicune does not have a reliable source of recovery, as RestTalk can be unreliable at times and leave Suicune as a sitting duck. It also faces immense competition from Slowbro in the bulky Calm Mind water role, although Suicune has some distinct advantages with Roar and Pressure.
