PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Smack Down + Stone Edge and Flamethrower

Smack Down sports high damage output backed by STAB, but has below-average energy generation. 

Stone Edge takes advantage of STAB to deal considerable damage, but does cost quite a bit of energy. Flamethrower acts as a coverage option for when Bastiodon's Rock-type moves would be resisted, and is also valuable against other Steel-types. Flash Cannon costs the most amount of energy, and despite getting STAB, is not recommended due to its lack of relevancy in the meta. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League:  4.5 / 5 

Bastiodon is the epitome of the word "Wall," and not just because its face looks like that. With absolutely monstrous defensive stats (higher than Deoxys-Defense), Bastiodon takes barely any damage from neutral hits, and it often takes double effective damage from Fighting- or Ground-type attacks to really break through. While Bastiodon's primary role in the metagame is as a hard counter to Flying-types like Altaria and Skarmory, it's also generally incredibly powerful, and a worthy inclusion to your team. However, it does struggle to beat other "Steel Tanks", due to its much slower moveset. 

Ultra League:  0 / 5

Maxes out in the Great League, best keep it there.

Master League:  0 / 5

No hope in sight for the Master League.
