[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Terrakion is in the OU (OverUsed) Tier of competitive battling. With base 129 Attack and base 108 Speed, Terrakion has become an extremely common sight in the OU Tier. This is thanks in large part to its great STAB coverage and its ability to revenge kill the many Dragon Dance and Quiver Dance users in the tier just by using a Choice Scarf. It is also one of the very few physical sweepers that can claim to break through Skarmory with just the use of an Attack boosting nature. There aren't many Pokémon that can claim to survive 2 neutral STAB moves from Terrakion. However, Terrakion is weak to quite a few common attacking types which include Water, Ground, and Fighting type moves.
