Ferroseed distinguishes itself as one of NU's premier defensive options due to its superb typing, letting it check Pokemon such as Togedemaru, Wishiwashi, and non-Fire Blast Gourgeist-S, and access to entry hazard options, allowing it to pressure opposing pivots. Ferroseed can switch in on spinners such as Eldegoss and utilize the opportunity to easily set up Spikes. If paired with a Spiker such as Garbodor or Qwilfish, Ferroseed can opt for Stealth Rock instead. Knock Off provides amazing utility, punishing opposing switch-ins by removing their item. Leech Seed allots Ferroseed a source of recovery and provides additional residual damage. Toxic can be utilized over Knock Off to cripple opposing Fire- and Fighting-types that may pivot into Ferroseed while also wearing down walls such as Cofagrigus and Lanturn.

Ferroseed finds its place on many balanced and bulky offense teams that appreciate its ability to check Water- and Grass-types and get up its entry hazard. Fire-types such as Rapidash and Silvally-Fire immensely limit Ferroseed's effectiveness; Water- and Ground-types such as Wishiwashi, Silvally-Water, and Sandaconda can check these Fire-types. Powerful wallbreakers such as Indeedee-F, Galarian Rapidash, and Unfezant appreciate Spikes support from Ferroseed to weaken grounded checks such as Galarian Stunfisk and Klinklang. In return, they can threaten opposing Fighting-types like Sawk and Toxicroak. Clefairy is a notable partner for Ferroseed, providing recovery with Wish; in turn, Ferroseed can check Steel-types such as Togedemaru and Klinklang.

Ferroseed distinguishes itself as one of NU's premier defensive option due to its superb typing, letting it check Pokemon such as Eldegoss, Wishiwashi, and Clefairy (I would definitely change the Eldegoss and Clefairy mentions in terms of Pokemon Ferroseed checks; these aren't exactly difficult Pokemon to handle. Swords Dance Silvally-Water and non-Fire Blast Gourgeist-S would be better mentions here.), and access to Spikes, allowing it to pressure switch-ins from opposing grounded pivots. (Harkening back to Eldegoss, though, you could put a point here about Ferroseed taking advantage of it and freely setting Spikes in its face. It's a similar niche to last generation where Ferroseed would just switch into Blastoise whenever.) If paired with a Spikes user such as Garbodor or Qwilfish, Ferroseed can opt for Stealth Rock instead. Knock Off provides amazing utility, punishing opposing switch-ins by removing their Leftovers, Eviolite, or Heavy-Duty Boots. Leech Seed allots Ferroseed a source of recovery and provides additional residual damage. Alternatively, Toxic can be utilized to cripple opposing Fire- and Fighting-types that may pivot into Ferroseed while also wearing down bulky walls such as Cofagrigus, Sandaconda, and Lanturn.

Ferroseeds finds its place on many balanced and bulky offense teams that appreciate its ability to check Water- and Grass-types and get up layers of Spikes. Fire-types such as Rapidash and Silvally-Fire immensely limit Ferroseed's effectiveness; Water- and Ground-types such as Wishiwashi, Silvally-Water, and Sandaconda can check these Fire-types. Powerful wallbreakers such as Indeedee-F, Galarian Rapidash, and Unfezant appreciate Spikes support from Ferroseed to weaken grounded checks such as Galarian Stunfisk, and Klinklang. In return, they can threaten opposing Fighting-types like Sawk and Toxicroak. Clefairy is a notable partner for Ferroseed, providing recovery with Wish and pressuring opposing Fighting-types (I don't think Clefairy is a good check to Fighting-types at all; Toxicroak fucks all over it, while Choice Band Sawk 2HKOes it with Close Combat.); In turn, Ferroseed can check Steel-types such as Togedemaru and Klinklang.

Ferroseed distinguishes itself as one of NU's premier defensive options due to its superb typing, letting it check Pokemon such as Swords Dance Silvally-Water, Togedemaru, Wishiwashi, and non-Fire Blast Gourgeist-S, and access to Spikes entry hazard options, allowing it to pressure switch-ins from opposing grounded pivots (all SD vallys can run Flame Charge and 2hko ferro at +2, while it does little to deter its sweep. Toge is a better example as a mon ferro hard walls. As there’s two options, mention the general entry hazard term, and you distinguish between spikes/sr later on). Ferroseed can switch in on spinners such as Eldegoss and utilitze the opportunity to easily set up Spikes. If paired with a Spikes user such as Garbodor or Qwilfish, Ferroseed can opt for Stealth Rock instead. Knock Off provides amazing utility, punishing opposing switch-ins by removing their Leftovers, Eviolite, or Heavy-Duty Boots. Leech Seed allots Ferroseed a source of recovery and provides additional residual damage. Alternatively, Toxic can be utilized to cripple opposing Fire- and Fighting-types that may pivot into Ferroseed while also wearing down walls such as Cofagrigus, Sandaconda, and Lanturn.(shed skin makes toxic not worthwhile, especially in comparison when leech is immediately more chip and recovery making it better for sanda)

Ferroseeds finds its place on many balanced and bulky offense teams that appreciate its ability to check Water- and Grass-types and get up layers of Spikes its entry hazard (see above). Fire-types such as Rapidash and Silvally-Fire immensely limit Ferroseed's effectiveness; Water- and Ground-types such as Wishiwashi, Silvally-Water, and Sandaconda can check these Fire-types. Powerful wallbreakers such as Indeedee-F, Galarian Rapidash, Drampa, and Unfezant appreciate Spikes support from Ferroseed to weaken grounded checks such as Galarian Stunfisk and Klinklang (g-rap isnt a wallbreaker more as its a sweeper/cleaner, so drampa fits more). In return, they can threaten opposing Fighting-types like Sawk and Toxicroak. Clefairy is a notable partner for Ferroseed, providing recovery with Wish; In turn, Ferroseed can check Steel-types such as Togedemaru and Klinklang.

QC 2/2!
 
Implemented! Ready for GP.
-Edit: Keeping Galarian Rapidash might be better since it fits into the theme of serving as a fighting check in the next sentence.
