Ferrothorn doesn't get Toxic Spikes, and it is weak to the most common offensive type in the game.


Forretress is also weak to Fire, just so you know.

Rapid Spin and Toxic Spikes and not weak to fighting are really the only things it has going for it. For everything else Ferrothorn is better.

Forretress can lay spikes/toxicspikes/stealthrock, isn't weak against fighting, can rapid spin, and Sturdy pretty much promises it'll at least get one move in. Also, it can use Volt Switch to escape trappers.


Ferrothorn can lay spikes/stealthrock, has almost double Forretress's base spdef, resists water, can SubSeed, is much better offensively, and can punish contact attacks with Iron Barbs.


1 on 1, Ferrothorn wins easily with leech seed and Iron Barbs(against rapid spin), but it really just depends on what you need.
