Hariyama @ Flame Orb
252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
ivs: 0 Spe
- Fake Out
- Close Combat
- Ice Punch / Payback
- Detect / Bullet Punch
- Fake Out incapacitates an opponent for a turn, allowing a partner to set up Trick Room more easily.
- With a Guts boost, Close Combat hits incredibly hard, OHKOing most neutral targets, while Ice Punch hits most Pokemon that resist Fighting-type attacks such as the genies and Latios for super effective damage.
- Since Hariyama has issues with damaging Ghost-types such as Jellicent or Dusclops, a Ghost-type Trick Room user such as Chandelure or Cofagrigus can set up Trick Room for Hariyama and deal good damage with their STAB Shadow Ball.
- Payback is an option over Ice Punch or Protect to hit Ghost-types such as Chandelure, Jellicent, and Dusclops for super effective damage, doing huge damage with a Guts boost. It's especially useful because Hariyama can't be crippled by burn, making Ghost-types rather easily to deal with. Bullet Punch is useful priority which can nullify a Focus Sash or pick off a Pokemon that's almost dead, and helps especially against Zapdos, which requires Fake Out or Bullet Punch to always die to Ice Punch.
