Ferrothorn is one of the most used Pokemon in competitive battling so I would like to know what are some of the best ways to counter it (movesets, pokemon, teams etc.)

Umm... What the heck was that about up top?

Anyway, The counter is obvious!

Fire and Fighting.

This being so, Either works, but its easiest to just carry both, or a pokemon with a fire move.

Also, Ferrothorn may have crazy defenses, but his special defense is lower than his Defense, so a good Special Fire type move such as flamethrower will be able to easily wipe him out.

In other words, just have a Special Attacking pokemon , who has atleast 1 fire move, ( Flamethrower is my most reccomended ) And you should be good to go.

Also make sure to carry something to deal with the weather, as Ferrothorn is a very common pokemon to use under the rain, as it turns his 4X fire weakness into a 2X, making it more difficult to take down.

Any Fire/fighting types are good counters. Chandelure, Volcarona are all good.

Moveset for Chandelure is here.

Moveset for Volcarona is here.

Darmanitan also works fine as well with Blaziken and Infernape.
