Scolipede's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Scolipede resides in the Borderline (BL) tier of competitive battling, meaning that it is banned from Underused (UU) and is only usable in Overused (OU) and the tiers above it, but not officially OU due to a lack of usage. While its primary niche at the start of Generation VI has been made null due to the changes in policy concerning Baton Pass chains, Scolipede is far from unviable in the OU tier, as it is a very usable offensive cleaner. Speed Boost allows for Scolipede to outpace the majority of the tier with one boost and dish out heavy damage with its Life Orb boosted Megahorn. Scolipede's overall coverage is great as it can cover its bases relatively well and nuke incoming switch-ins with the appropriate coverage move. Scolipede can also be used as an entry hazards lead, as its access to Spikes and Toxic Spikes can provide valuable team support. Scolipede does suffer from its relative frailty, proneness to getting worn down easily, and weakness to many top tier threats, but it is very usable when given the correct support.
Scolipede is also a viable option in the Uber tier of competitive battling. With Speed Boost and a great movepool to take advantage of the ability, Scolipede is an effective suicide lead that can outspeed the unboosted tier after one boost. Spikes and Toxic Spikes are both greatly valued, while Pin Missile allows for Scolipede to take out Deoxys-S and Darkrai. Scolipede also has Endeavor to heavily weaken Pokémon that bring it down to its Focus Sash. However, Scolipede is stopped cold by Magic Bounce users such as Mega Diancie and Mega Sableye and Taunt users, all of which are common on Ubers teams.
