nominating alomomola for a-rank
alomomola is one of the best walls in the current metagame, being able to wall top tier threats such as emboar, golurk, zangoose, cinccino, absol, carracosta, tauros, kangaskhan, and some variants of samurott or braviary. it is one of the best initial switch-ins to sawk, taking only around half of its health from close combat, allowing one to go to a safe resistance or immunity such as garbodor or haunter—whom one normally wouldn't switch in right away due to coverage moves—while alomomola escapes with near max health due to regenerator. due to its awesome ability, alomomola can also pass wishes better than any other pokemon in the tier, since it can heal itself and another teammate in the same turn. this makes it a wonderful addition to every type of team, even offense, which enjoys alomomola's huge wishes. in addition to being a spectacular physical wall, it can also run a mixed defensive set with max defense and special defense to tank hits exceptionally well from the likes of charizard, glaceon, and special samurott while keeping most of its physical bulk.
many people claim that alomomola is set up bait, but most pokemon actually have a hard time keeping a substitute up against it, and therefore are stalled out by toxic. even bulkier attackers such as rotom-f need significant investment to avoid being hit by waterfall for under twenty-five percent. only pokemon who resist waterfall or extremely bulky set up sweepers such as braviary can set up on alomomola, but you can say that for any other wall in the tier. alomomola is actually better off than walls such as lickilicky and regice since it can switch out without having to heal itself first thanks to regenerator, giving you more time to deal with the opponent.
