Though it has multiple weakness (namely the Fairy type), Kommo-o has both excellent Atk & Sp.Atk values, along with high damage resistances across the board. This Pokemon is a good candidate for an attacker, capable of using both physical and special depending on what your current set up is.
Lack Of Fighting Types In The Meta
Currently, the single player meta has a distinct lack of fighting types, so Kommo-o can occupy a useful role. Many top threats are extremely weak to Fighting moves, like Tyranitar, Hydreigon, Excadrill, Ferrothorn, and more.
