[OVERVIEW]

  • Nidoqueen's increased bulk bestows it with a niche over Nidoking where it can provide more reliable defensive roles and utility with Stealth Rock.
  • Because of this and by virtue of its typing, Nidoqueen can handle VoltTurn cores with no effort while also neutralizing their common pivots such as Scizor, Mega Manectric, and Zeraora.
  • Nidoqueen's Poison-typing also allows it to check dangerous Fighting-types like Terrakion, Cobalion, and Infernape.
  • Nidoqueen also boasts Nidoking's coverage which can allow it to beat out Defoggers like Gligar and Hydreigon who can attempt to remove your hazards.
  • Unfortunately, Nidoqueen's lack of reliable recovery leaves it prone to be chipped down in the match.
  • Despite the useful resistances that a Poison-typing offers, Nidoqueen's susceptibility to Ground-type moves prevents it from checking Krookodile and Mega Aerodactyl unlike its competition.
  • Speaking of competition, Nidoqueen faces this from other Stealth Rock setters like Hippowdon, Gligar, Rhyperior, and Palossand, but Nidoqueen's typing to better take on VoltTurn cores while not sacrificing offensive pressure is what justifies its niche in the tier.
