    [SET COMMENTS]

    • swords dance plus speed boost should be threatening
    • flare blitz is a great stab move off 85 base attack. sky uppercut no so much
    • protect for speed boosts or shadow claw to kill Slowking
    • life orb so you do more damage.
    • adamant because you are speed boosting.
    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    • lots of hazard support
    • wynaut is useful
    • eviolite if you want more set up opportunities.
    • grass types such as roselia help against slowbro and other water types.
    [Other Options]

    • blaze and more moves
    • mixed set
    • sub
    • toxic
    [Checks and Counters]

    • slowking
    • QUAGSIRE
    • bulky waters

    slowking* in checks/counters and i still think tentacool doesn't beat anything, even something as bad as combusken

    aside from that, bulky waters in general should do the trick

    Quagsire needs a special mention because it ignores all stat boosts!
