Overview Edit

Forretress is a physical tank that unfortunately suffers from a shallow movepool, with no real reliable way of dealing physical STAB damage. Its Bug/Steel typing is amazing defensively though, allowing it to wall a good portion of the games' Pokemon, and its a good user of many status TMs.
