    I think that Brick Break shouldn't be an option on the recover tank. What does it hit? A reliable OHKO on Tyranitar is nice, but it can't do jack to you and nor does it hit bulky waters hard enough. Waterfall/Stone Edge coverage is enough and isn't really enhanced by Brick Break.

    Mach Punch, Revenge and Roar should be the options for that slot. Mach Punch allows you to stop Stratagem as well as basically doing the same job against DDtar (you take one hit in any scenario where it DDs on the switch, regardless of move). Revenge should be the "power" attack and Roar just helps with random stuff like Gyara and Mence and scouts in general.

    No offense, but a lot of your changes are wrong. ThunderPunch is the correct spelling for one, and Toxi-stall is a legit abbreviation.

    As for the Swagger set, I have tested it extensively, Caelum and I can attest to the fact that it does work.

    You're both wrong. It's written as ThunderPunch.

    My bad, I looked on serebii and it's Thunderpunch actually, and wasn't aware of toxi-stall, but you did forget the dash
    edit: or is serebii wrong ?_?

    Tennis asked for someone to grammar check this. Corrections in bold, comments underlined.
