 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Wartortle finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling thanks to its access to the combination of Foresight and Rapid Spin, which allows it to remove entry hazards against Ghost-Type Pokémon with the exception of Shedinja. While Wartortle is limited to this one niche due to low offensive Statistics, it can still perform this role effectively, but must be wary of powerful Grass and Electric-Type Pokémon, who can still get a One-Hit KO against a Wartortle that's holding an Eviolite.
