Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What can Tyranitar be used as a counter for?

0 votes

I was trying to find a solution to my Metagross problem, so I was think about a complete counter Pokemon to both it, and things similar to it. I've seen Tyranitar's power first hand, and know that it can do plenty, but; what exactly is Tyranitar used to counter competitively? How good is it against wall Pokémon?

Well, alright then. Thank you, Sir Dan. You answer my question yet again.
You're welcome :3

Btw Tyranitar is okay against Physical walls such as Mandibuzz and Zapdos but will often get worn down with Toxic, it doesn't do well against walls such as Hippowdon, Mega Venusaur and Rotom-W. Tyranitar can carry Fire Blast occasionally which it can use it to OHKO Physical walls such as Ferrothorn and Forretress. It also doesn't do too bad against Skarmory and Blissey but would probably end up being poisoned by Blissey.
You should select best anwer, @BrotherVictory
Ah, well, my Tyrannitar will have reinforcements with my Chandelure, but thanks again for the information.
No problem, glad I could help.
