[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Virizion is in the OU (OverUsed) tier of competitive battling. Virizion is a solid physical attacker, special attacker, and mixed attacker which can make it difficult to predict at first. It can viably attack from either side of the offensive spectrum thanks to boosting moves in Swords Dance, Calm Mind, and Work Up as well as offensive moves such as Close Combat, Giga Drain, and Stone Edge. However, Virizion is held back by its decidedly average base 72 Defense and base 90 Attack and Special Attack stats which are somewhat lower than other OU mixed attackers like Salamence and Infernape.
