Is it just me, or is Ferrothorn a completely nuts Pokemon?

What do you mean?
That by itself is an opinion.

RE: Ferrothorn

Ferrothorn is definitely OU. It's a great entry hazard set up pokemon dispute the weakness to fire. Scizor and foretress also have the x4 fire weakness, but they all still show up in OU haha.

RE: Ferrothorn

sorry. Bear in mind I never do tiered play XD

I like the fun typing though. Grass is more fun than pure steel

RE: Ferrothorn

I love Ferrothorn. Sets up Spikes & SR, great defencive stats, great typing (with the exception of the x4 Fire weakness). Also has great sync with Jellicent, covers each others weakness and servers as a spin blocker that can ruin all the hard work to set up.

RE: Ferrothorn

Ferrothorn has plenty of advantages over forry including power whip, an electricity resistance, rock resistance, iron barbs, better spd and attack than forry and others too. This guy features on almost every team I've seen. How can it not be OU?

RE: Ferrothorn

Dude, this thing is 2nd place in usage in the DW Tier on Pokemon Online, only Chandelure surpasses it. In the Wifi Tier he IS the number one in usage, and by a fair amount too. I see the thing on nearly every other team. This thing is DEFINATLY not UU, not even BL. It can switch in on a Latios' Draco Meteor no problem, and if you predict right, you can force a switch into something and switch the same turn to counter their counter :P

RE: Ferrothorn

Amazing typing, great overall stats, and quite a well rounded support movepool give Ferrothorn the ability to preform well on both offensive and defensive teams. This is top tier material, although it may not seem like it on first glance.

| #1 Smogon Standard OU (BW) | #9 Pokemonexperte Server (DPPt) | #2 PokeBattleCenter (BW) |#1 PokeBattleCenter (DPPt) | 1...2.. PDC is coming for you.. 3...4... better lock your doors.

RE: Ferrothorn

Is Ferrothorn a good lead, or is it more of a wall/counter?

RE: Ferrothorn

It can serve as both, BlueEyedSteelix. You'll see it as a wall, or utility much more than as a lead however.

RE: Ferrothorn

Thanks for the reply, Juliacoolo. I'm thinking of using Ferrothorn as a utility for my team. I'm not completely sure how it's going to fit, though...

RE: Ferrothorn

Ferrothorn is quite a competent pokemon. It can stall, fight, and support. And contrary to common belief, it is not OHKOd by most fire moves (proof: my quiet jellicent with max sp ark EVs could not KO it with HP fire).

The only thing I was able to OHKO a Ferrothorn with was an Infernape who had gotten off with a Nasty Plot. Even then, he was probably just a bad player for not switching out Sad

RE: Ferrothorn

Ferrothorn or Forretress? They serve similar roles with similar weaknesses, but are there specific situations where one should be used over the other?
