Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Toxapex is a part of the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. With amazing natural bulk, the ability to regain HP through Recover and its ability Regenerator, and a solid defensive typing, Toxapex is among the best defensive Pokémon in the tier. Its access to Haze is incredibly important, as it can shut down potential set up sweepers, making it a wonderful fit for stall and balance teams. It can wall some of the tier's most potent offensive powerhouses like Mega Scizor, Volcarona, Keldeo, and Greninja lacking Extrasensory. With Toxic Spikes, Toxapex can passively wear down the opposing team while serving as a good utility Pokémon. Toxapex's offensive prowess is much to be desired, though, and it heavily relies on Scald burns and poison damage to be able to break through a number of threats.

Toxapex is also viable in the Uber tier of competitive battling. It makes for a valuable defensive Pokémon thanks to its great defensive stats, a useful typing, and access to great utility moves like Toxic Spikes, Scald, and Haze. Toxapex functions as a physically defensive pivot that checks the likes of Marshadow, defensive Ho-oh, and Mega Lucario, all of which are very imposing threats. With Regenerator and Recover, Toxapex can stay healthy rather easily, allowing for it to continue checking opposing threats without much of a problem. Its defensive set is best used with a Rocky Helmet to chip away at physical threats, but a Shed Shell can also be used in order to avoid Mega Gengar and Dugtrio from trapping it. Toxapex's biggest flaw is its Ground weakness that makes it highly susceptible to the likes of Primal Groudon, Arceus-Ground, and Zygarde-C. The Primal Groudon weakness is especially egregious given that Toxapex's Scalds cannot hit it, only leaving Toxic Spikes damage to be able to wither it down. With its passive nature, Toxapex can be rather easily trapped by Mega Gengar unless it runs a Shed Shell. Toxapex can be completely overwhelmed by certain Pokémon that it is supposed to check such as Bulk Up Marshadow that runs Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike.
