Point taken. Now that I think about it, the only way Elgyem could ever hope to OHKO Mienfoo is if it was a TR sweeper (or if it caught it on an unexpected switch-in), which we've already decided was totally pointless because of Analytic.

This is a decent set. I can see it working out well. Make a sub and Recover any damage. It doesn't really hit that hard without NP though, and 32 SAtk is pretty good by LC standards.
And technically, Shadow Ball > HP Fight imo. Since no one sends in Ferroseed or Bronzor to break a Sub, Shadow Ball would be a better idea. But then Scraggy... ugh. So generally that's a tough choice. Narrowing that down would be nice.
