Swampert finds itself in the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. With good 100/90/90 bulk and a solid defensive typing, Swampert is an ideal defensive Pokémon for many teams. It can stop certain Fire-types like Darmanitan and Entei while providing support with Stealth Rock and Roar. However, Swampert does suffer from having a massive weakness to Grass-type attacks and not having any form of reliable recovery. It also faces indirect competition from Mega Swampert, which is itself a great Pokémon to use for more offensive roles like its Rain Dance sweeper set or offensive Stealth Rock tank set.
