Pokemon Analysis

Tier List Explanation

Although its sync nuke is hypothetically second only to Morpeko's in terms of sheer damage, Drednaw suffers from the extreme amount of commitment, both in the teambuilder and at the scout banner, it requires to reach those numbers. Additionally, because a part of that commitment is ensuring the pair's access to constant rain, it faces insurmountable competition from the completely free Cyrus & Palkia, who synergize better with primary rain setter Swampert while out-dpsing Drednaw and maintaining usability outside of rain.
