Vigoroth finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. In addition to having a good Speed and usable Attack and Defense Statistics, it gains defensive bulk as long as it is holding an Eviolite. Its Speed also makes it an option to break down the Pokémon that stall.
Ghost-Type Pokémon such as Haunter and Misdreavus are capable of shutting down Vigoroth, along with afflicting it with a Burn or Paralysis to slow it down. Special Attacks will really hurt Vigoroth, even if it's holding an Eviolite.
