Is stealth rock really worth it?

I bred up a ferrothorn with SR/Leech Seed/Gyro/Power Whip for my starter, but SR seems to do very little damage so far.

Is it still worth it to have a starter like Ferro vs a more speedy and aggressive start?

It'll pay off if you're up against a team with no rapid spinner/magic bouncer and are also weak to the rocks. Yeah I'd say it's worth it.

There's no reason not to use Stealth Rock.

If you're doing 6v6 singles, stealth rock is not only worth it, but pretty much necessary.

In any other format? Not really worth it.

Depends, the less switch ins take place the significantly less threatening it becomes.

Notably, 3v3 has half the Pokemon.

However if you run into Talonflame a lot, it's relatively worth it because it'll kill itself with recoil a lot faster.

Its not a D-Bag move at all. And a word of advice. Charizard Y, Volcarona and Talonflame on the same team... not the best idea.

I dont use any of those three pokes, nor do i use stealth rock. I use pokes i like, and dont use entry hazrds at all, unless its when i play on sims, and even then its rare. Just how i prefer to play.
