    I'm voting Solerme.

    Tapu Koko has a pretty good defensive typing for an offensive mon, and his core manages to cover its weaknesses quite well. And I just love bulky mons.

    Well, if the voting still up (didn't see any close threat) my vote goes for I dont care.

    Buzzwole got excelent physical defense which allows it to switch against fire fang's garchomp, or even fire blast, thanks to its AV.

    0 SpA Garchomp Fire Blast vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Assault Vest Buzzwole: 76-90 (35.5 - 42%)
    252 Atk Choice Band Garchomp Fire Fang vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Buzzwole: 86-102 (40.1 - 47.6%)

    The only problem I had was a boosted Mega-salamence. Sash koko would be better to take a hit and revenge it

    Thank you for pointing this out, I can't believe I messed up so badly in the calcs. But trust me, the EVs are right, I just did the calculations very wrong.

    These are the right ones:

    defensive calcs (open)

    +1 252 Atk Mold Breaker Mega Gyarados Earthquake vs. +1 192 HP / 20 Def Tapu Koko in Electric Terrain: 146-172 (86.3 - 101.7%) -- 12.5% chance to OHKO
    +1 252+ Atk Mega Salamence Earthquake vs. +1 192 HP / 20 Def Tapu Koko in Electric Terrain: 152-180 (89.9 - 106.5%) -- 37.5% chance to OHKO
    252+ Atk Mamoswine Earthquake vs. +1 192 HP / 20 Def Tapu Koko in Electric Terrain: 140-168 (82.8 - 99.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
    252 Atk Garchomp Earthquake vs. +1 192 HP / 20 Def Tapu Koko in Electric Terrain: 128-152 (75.7 - 89.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
    +2 252 Atk Adaptability Mega Lucario Bullet Punch vs. +1 192 HP / 20 Def Tapu Koko: 74-88 (43.7 - 52%) -- 9.8% chance to 2HKO
    +2 252+ Atk Cloyster Icicle Spear (5 hits) vs. +1 192 HP / 20 Def Tapu Koko: 140-170 (82.8 - 100.5%) -- approx. 6.3% chance to OHKO


    These are the most important hits it needed to survive at that time. I'm so sorry for showing you wrong calcs.
