    Arguably one of the best scarfers in the UU tier, Darmanitan hits hard and very fast. With access to U-turn he is the perfect scout. But its not all good when it comes to this monkey. With his stealth rock weakness switching in and out can be difficult if you are without a rapid spinner. Weaknesses aside Darmantitan is one of the best at what it does and should come to mind when looking for a scarf.

    Choice Scarf Sheer Force Jolly Nature 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
    Flare Blitz
    Rock Slide / Stone Edge / Earthquake

    This is the standard choice set for Darmanitan and the set you will see most of the time. And its no wonder why. With sheer force Darmanitain possess one of the strongest fire STAB moves in the game. U-turn and Superpower are for scouting purposes and hitting things like snorlax respectively. The last slot is up to the players discretion. Rock slide is the preferred choice over Stone Edge because the drop of power is hardly noticed while the gain in accuracy isn’t. Earthquake is also a choice but be wary, because locking into earthquake is always a risky move as you can become set-up fodder. Excellent team mates are Blastoise, who can tank the water hits that annoy Darmanitan and Spin the hazards that can

    Im still working on this.
