PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Bullet Seed + Power Whip and Flash Cannon Thunder or Acid Spray

Bullet Seed is recommended due to its significantly better energy generation, following the rebalance from April 2020. 

Power Whip (90 Power/50 Energy) is Ferrothorn's bread-and-butter move, sporting good power for reasonable energy cost. Flash Cannon takes advantage of STAB to provide relatively neutral damage, though its coverage typing isn't as valuable. Thunder (100 Power/60 Energy) provides Ferrothorn with an answer to Flying-types meant to counter it. Acid Spray (20 Power/50 Energy) is an objectively weak move, but it has the huge advantage of dropping the opponent's defense by 2 stages, either leaving them highly susceptible to future attacks or forcing a switch, which grants a large tactical advantage to its user.

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 3.5 / 5

Ferrothorn is a bulky Grass Pokemon that stands out with its useful Steel sub-typing. Its access to coverage against various Flying-types, in addition to not being weak to most of them and also not being weak to most Water-type coverage attacks, gives Ferrothorn a lot of play in a role that's already heavily contested. While its weakness to Fighting-types makes it difficult to pair with other Steel-type Pokemon, its overall individual performance is not to be underestimated. Just keep this thing away from fire. 

Ultra League: 2.5 / 5

Ferrothorn can operate in the Ultra League by virtue of its resistance list, where it has positive matchup against several bit-names such as Swampert and Venusaur. However, its overall performance is generally too weak to be considered worthwhile out of a few shallow niches.

Master League: 0 / 5

Durians are noted for having a foul odor, and our Durian friend has that odor on full display in the Master League!
