Toxapex is good at enduring multiple hits from enemies due to its high Defense and Sp. Defense stats.
In addition, if it is holding Shell Bell, Leftovers, or Sitrus Berry, its durability will greatly improve.
Besides having defense-oriented stats, its move Toxic is a very effective offensive move to slowly decreasing the enemy’s HP. Also, the poison damage from Toxic worsens every turn.
