[edit] Competitive Battling

Vaporeon is in the OverUsed (OU) Tier of Competitive Battling in both Generation IV and Generation V. Vaporeon is best known as one of the best Bulky Water types around with high HP, great Special Attack, and respectable Special Defense. Its access to moves such as Heal Bell, Roar, and Wish make it a great choice to support your team. It can even turn into a bulky attacker with its base 110 Special Attack and good 3 move coverage. In Generation V, Vaporeon was given the Hydration ability through the Dream World and this allows Vaporeon to adjust to the weather driven metagame quite well. It can use Hydration to become a tanking attacker with good defenses and boosted Water attacks, or it can become a near unbreakable wall with high defensive EV investment and access to a Rest that it wakes up from at the end of the turn with rain active.
