Heard the rumors that this generation is so offensive walls don't stand a chance? Ferrothorn hasn't. It has a unique typing that gives a ton of resists and only 2 weaknesses. Couple that with amazing overall defensive stats, and you've got an OU staple. Oh, did I mention it can use Spikes?

Ferrothorn's walling capabilities are incredible. While Fighting and Fire moves are very common (Fighting moves in particular gaining popularity in 5th gen largely due to the new, very capable Fighting Pokemon), Ferrothorn walls almost anything not using such moves. Leech Seed and Iron Barbs damage stack very fast, and so do the Spike layers. Power Whip and Gyro Ball are there for when you cannot put more Spikes on the field.

    I've been researching for a team (For Pokemon Online) and stumbled upon a combo with this pokemon. Jellicent + Ferrothorn. They cover eachother's weaknesses, 15/17 resistant of attack types, and an amazing Defensive Combo. It lacks from ground resist, other than that, pretty overpowered? Yes ? No?

    Yeah, Jellicent+Ferro is the "CeleTran" of Generation 5. CeleTran never got much attention on this site as both involved Pokes were legendary, but with Jellithorn you don't have that problem. Great combo
