    [Overview]

    • Hahakomori can Baton Pass numerous boosts
    • Its a great sweeper
    • All Steel-types wall it.
    • Grass/Bug typing is good.
    [SET]
    name: Sword Dance
    move 1: Sword Dance
    move 2: Leaf Blade
    move 3: X-Scissor
    move 4: Baton Pass / Shadow Claw
    item: Life Orb
    nature: Jolly
    ability: Chlorophyll
    evs: 6 HP / 252 Attack / 252 Speed

    Set Comments:

    • Main Focus of set is to sweep.
    • Sword Dance allows Hakakori to reach a Attack stat of 610.
    • Jolly nature allows you to reach 310 Speed.
    • Leaf Blade and X-Scissor are the main attacks for it.
    • Baton Pass allows you to pass your Sword Dance to a different Pokemon.
    Additional Comments:

    • In the sun, Hakakomri's Speed with increase to 620, making it fast and powerful.
    • If you want to just Baton Pass Sword Dance to other Pokemon, move the Attack EVs into HP and change the item to Leftovers.
    Teammates & Counters:

    • Steel-types wall this specially Skarmory and Nattorei but you can Baton Pass out to a Pokemon that can take of the Steel-type Pokemon.
    [SET]
    name: Baton Pass Agility
    move 1: Baton Pass
    move 2: Agility
    move 3: X-Scissor
    move 4: Leaf Blade
    item: Leftovers
    nature: Jolly
    ability: Chlorophyll
    evs: 6 HP / 252 Attack / 252 Speed

    Set Comments:

    • Set is used to Baton Pass Agility rather than sweep a team.
    • Leaf Blade and X-Scissor are for STAB.
    Additional Comments:

    • You can move all the Attack EVs into HP to make Hahakomori more defensive.
    Teammate and Counters:

    • Steel-types wall this set. Fire-types can easily deal with them.
    • Pokemon like Infernape, Heatran, and Metagross enjoy the Speed being passed to them.
    • Heatran is an especially good partner to Hahakomori since it can take Fire-, Psychic-, and Flying-type attacks aim at it.
    [Team Options]

    • Magnezone can trap Steel-types that wall it.
    • Heatran loves the Speed boost and has great defensive typing with Hahakomori.
    [Optional Changes]

    • Hahakomori can Baton Pass a ton of things like Claw Sharpen and Calm Mind but its best to stick to either Agility or Sword Dance.
    [Counters]

    • Steel-types wall Hahakomori.
    [Dream World]

    • Hahakomori gets the ability Dust-Proof in Dream World.
    • This allows it to not take damage from weather.
    • Doesn't really help Hakakomori.

    On the Agility set, Bug + Normal provides better coverage than Bug + Grass (despite STAB). Bug + Ghost is also an alternative depending on what you want to hit.

    Me First can be 'situational' good. Say you are facing a Flying type trying to Brave Bird you, your other moves are weak to it, and Me First gives it a 50% (pseudo STAB) boost. After a Swords Dance, it might be enough to knock-out the flying type.

    Also works for numerous foes that have super-effective attacks they are weak to, such as a Dragon move vs a Dragon, a physical Ghost move vs a Ghost, etc.
