Standard Movesets with a twist.
What's different about the set
: Well its the standard Choice Band Escavalier set but with a twist. Custap Berry is really cool on Escavalier. It allows it to dish out Priority-Swarm-boosted Megahorns and full power Reversals. Endure lets it survive any attack with 1 HP left. Reversal hits Aggron, Steelix, Magneton etc. hard. Megahorn and Iron Head are standard STABs. You can use more speed if you like for outrunning Slowking and such.
Why it works:
People don't expect Escavalier to survive certain Super Effective hits like Hidden Power Fire and Fire Blasts. After Escavalier survives and hits them with a Reversal or Megahorn they realize what just happend.
Positives: you get a few surprise kills as well as your usual kills. Negatives you lose Choice Band or Leftovers. You lose Pursuit. You lose Sleep Talk / Return. C & C remain the same, though Magneton needs to watch out for Reversal. Teammate should be pokemon that can take on Fire types as well as Steel types. Poliwrath, Will-O-Wisp etc.
Credit goes to DelanHaar6 for the set or to anyone who discovered it first. My first post of this sort, so it may not be up to standard.
