Um... mantine? It has way more HP, and is bulkier than matyke because of that eviolite or not. Also is it bad I kept on looking at the OP trying to find the core for the week? Like I was practically ripping my hair out. Anyway, I'll have a look through some stuff and then edit this with my counter (prepare for noobish mistakes :|) Edit: Dammit sky don't make me look stupid @_@ Anyway, I'll go with a guy who really helps my team with mushy and does pretty well against gardy on the two teams I use him on (I have like 15 NU teams. Sad right?) Let out hot air (Drifblim) @ Flying Gem Trait: Unburden EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Spd Gentle Nature - Acrobatics - Destiny Bond - Stockpile - Shadow Ball Well this guy is pretty impressive. He got onto my team becuase 1) it knows memento and it is a linoone core (I replaced it for stockpile for the purpose of this) and 2) it really helps me with those annoying psychic types. The guy has more than enough bulk to survive 1 shadow ball, and it has enough speed after unburdened acrobatics to either destiny bond second turn or get rid of it with shadow ball if gardy switched into a shadow ball. 0SpAtk Drifblim (Neutral) Shadow Ball vs 4HP/0SpDef Gardevoir (Neutral): 50% - 60% (140 - 168 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO. Or if it switched into acrobatics: 4Atk Flight Gem Drifblim (Neutral) Acrobatics vs 4HP/0Def Gardevoir (Neutral): 75% - 88% (210 - 247 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO. Or if it switched into not flying gem acrobatics: 4Atk Drifblim (Neutral) Acrobatics vs 4HP/0Def Gardevoir (Neutral): 50% - 59% (141 - 166 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO. So this thing can easily counter gardevoir. In terms of musharna? Well musharna can barely hurt drifblim with either of its attacks, and drifblim can at least do more damage to musharna than he can do to drifblim. Drifblim to musharna: 4SpAtk Drifblim (Neutral) Shadow Ball vs 252HP/4SpDef Musharna (Neutral): 38% - 45% (168 - 198 HP). Guaranteed 3HKO. 4Atk Flight Gem Drifblim (Neutral) Acrobatics vs 252HP/4Def Musharna (Neutral): 38% - 45% (169 - 199 HP). Guaranteed 3HKO. That's really close and weird :| Musharna to drifblim: 0SpAtk Musharna (Neutral) Psychic vs 252HP/0SpDef Drifblim (+SpDef): 30% - 35% (153 - 181 HP). Guaranteed 4HKO. Note that drifblim is faster, so it can switch in and still bit mushy bar a crit!
