Gurdurr can switch in easily because it has guts to take advantage of paralysis. As for the remaining pokemon hat do fear being paralyzed, that doesn’t prevent them from coming in on a double switch, a resisted hit, or after a KO and forcing regice out and racking up more damage from entry hazards.
Gurdurr is 2HKOed by Ice Beam and outpaced the next turn.
Does regice really wall exxegutor?
252+ SpA Choice Specs Exeggutor Leaf Storm vs. 248 HP / 252+ SpD Regice: 43.8 - 51.51%
252+ SpA Choice Specs Exeggutor Psyshock vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Regice: 57.85 - 68.04%
Regice can’t switch in very easily at all, especially factoring in stealth rock in addition to any other entry hazards that are up.
+2 252 Atk Life Orb Samurott Waterfall vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Regice: 78.51 - 92.28%
Assuming Samurott SDs on the switch, it can OHKO Regice the following turn after rocks.
The most common Exeggutor sets right now are LumRest and Sunny Day, both of which cannot do nearly as much as Specs.
Samurott's most common set is Hydro Pump / Ice Beam / HP Grass(or Electric) / Megahorn (or Taunt) which Regice beats. Swords Dance Samurott can beat Regice, however just the fact that Regice can beat a Samurott set is a very big deal.
Regice cannot wall those two nor altaria.
+1 252+ Atk Life Orb Altaria Outrage vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Regice: 76.58 - 90.63%
Altaria in general is not good right now, and DD Altaria has no reason to exist in the same tier as Fraxure. If you're seeing Altaria chances are they will be Specially Defensive or Specs.
- Also how about we start talking about Piloswine's ranking? Should it stay in A-rank or go to S-rank?
- And how about Altaria's ranking? Should it stay in B-rank or go down to C-rank?
