On the flip side, the quality of your analysis is impeccable- you do a great job of outlining your spread's goals and your calculations demonstrate that your spread does what you ask it to do. I'm a bit concerned that your spread gives us absolutely no latitude to invest meaningfully in Physical Defense, but outside of the concerns mentioned earlier your analysis is spot-on.
That's a fair point about the PT. I really don't want CAP5 to take strong physical neutral hits too well, because Harvest + Lum or Sitrus really have the potential to turn this thing into a defensive monster if we don't give it limitations. That said, there's no harm in giving people the option of running 252 / 252 impish if they want to make CAP's defense less easy to exploit, so I've changed theBase Defense to 63.
Most notably, this allows 252 / 252 impish spreads to take a Secret Sword from Keldeo after SR, while still ensuring it gets OHKO'd by stuff like Infernape Close Combat and Breloom Low Sweep. Being able to take Scarf Tyranitar's Superpower and Band Tyranitar's Stone Edge are both possible with this spread, so it definitely has some merit if you're struggling with Tyranitar.
