- Shell Smash
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Rapid Spin


Wartortle’s access to Shell Smash along with solid bulk and offensive coverage makes it a decent sweeper in the NFE metagame. Surf threatens the likes of Raboot and Piloswine, and Ice Beam allows it to deal with Water-resistant Pokemon like Tangela and Roselia. Wartortle is also quite capable of removing entry hazards with Rapid Spin against the likes of Clefairy and Vullaby. However, Wartortle tends to struggle with the likes of Thwackey and Mareanie, with the former being able to revenge kill it for free with Grassy Glide and the latter simply being an incredibly reliable defensive answer to Wartortle that can very easily shut it down via Haze or Toxic. Teammates such as Raboot, Kadabra, and Ferroseed can help answer these threats for Wartortle while providing offensive support through either momentum or entry hazards.

Wartortle’s access to Shell Smash along with solid bulk and offensive coverage makes it a decent sweeper in the NFE metagame. Surf allows it to threaten the likes of Raboot and Piloswine, and Ice beam allows it to deal with water resists like Tangela and Roselia. Rapid Spin allows you to remove hazard, which wartortle is quite capable of doing against the likes of Clefairy and Vullaby. Wartortle tends to struggle with the likes of Thwackey and Mareanie, with the former being able to click grassy glide and revenge kill you for free and the latter simply being an incredibly reliable defensive answer to Wartortle that is very easily able to cripple it via Haze or Toxic, [end this sentence here]

generally you would want to pair Wartortle with checks to these Pokemon like Kadabra and Ferroseed in order to provide some amount of pressure to these threats that Wartortle isn’t capable of.
1/1 after implement astounding job here

Rapid Spin allows it to remove hazards, which Wartortle is also quite capable of doing removing entry hazards with Rapid Spin against the likes of Clefairy and Vullaby. However, (AC) (optional) Wartortle tends to struggle with the likes of Thwackey and Mareanie, with the former being able to click Grassy Glide and revenge kill it for free with Grassy Glide and the latter simply being an incredibly reliable defensive answer to Wartortle that is can very easily able to cripple it (maybe replace "cripple it" with "shut it down" since haze doesn't quite fit the definition of cripple in comparison to toxic) via Haze or Toxic. (spacing) Teammates to Wartortle such as Raboot, Kadabra, or and Ferroseed can help answer these, (RC) threats for Wartortle while providing offensive support through either momentum and or entry hazards (assuming this bc idt most the mons listed can do both).
