X = Sub-optimal moveset with zero viability

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Bug Bite is strictly superior to Struggle Bug in every respect.

  • Heavy Slam is the only STAB charge move that Forretress learns, and is itself a decent 2-bar move.

  • Rock Tomb and Earthquake simply don’t work.

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Struggle Bug performs better on defense due to high defensive DPS.

  • Heavy Slam and Rock Tomb, both 2-bar moves, are preferred, as they are likely to be used at least once.

  • Rock Tomb has coverage vs. Forretress’s biggest enemy: Fire-types.

  • Earthquake is not worth mentioning.

Rating Explanation

Forretress isn’t a fortress as the name would suggest. This Pokemon has very limited use in the metagame. On offense, its fast move has zero synergy with its charge moves and its low Atk stat is plain unviable. On defense, although Forretress’s Def stat is impressive, it’s crippled by low HP and a fatal double weakness to Fire. There isn’t much value in Forretress and it’s not worth spending stardust on.
