Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Iron Tail usually beats Dragon Tail on offense due to STAB.

  • Heavy Slam shares typing with Iron Tail and outdamages Earthquake, Steelix’s other STAB charge move.

  • Steelix’s offense is bad, and Crunch will only make it worse.

     

Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Steelix’s fast moves are both great, but Dragon Tail is less likely to be resisted by Steelix’s usual counters.

  • Crunch and Heavy Slam are fantastic options, each with multiple bars and relatively early damage windows.

  • Earthquake is a joke on defense.

     

Rating Explanation

Steelix is tailored to be a defensive behemoth, possessing an enormous Def stat and one of the best defensive types. Steelix is one of the bulkiest defenders there is, being effective at wasting an attacker's time even in disadvantageous matchups. It unfortunately has weaknesses to many common Pokemon, such as Machamp, Vaporeon, and Flareon, but it poses a thorn in the side of players who default to Dragonite or Tyranitar for attacking gyms.

Steelix's Atk is too poor to be considered on offense, although it can serve as a fair anchor in contexts such as Articuno raids.
