Biggest threat to Magnezone, faster sweepers, special walls, and Earthquake. [SET] name: Choice Specs move 1: Thunderbolt / Thunder move 2: Volt Switch move 3: Hidden Power Fire / Hidden Power Ice move 4: Flash Cannon item: Choice Specs nature: Modest / Timid ability: Magnet Pull / Analytic evs: 170 HP / 252 SpA / 88 Spe ivs: 2 Atk / 30 SpA / 30 Spe [SET COMMENTS] This is the most powerful set for Magnezone. Great for getting rid of slower steels with no problem Thunderbolt is your best and most powerful STAB Flash Cannon guarantees a OHKO to Kyruem-B without entry hazards. Thunderbolt gets rid almost all bulky water types except Special defensive Rotom-W and Gastrodon. Volt-Switch is such an amazing move for Magnezone. Having momentum which Substitute doesn't provide is nice as well. 88 Speed EVs is what you need to out speed minimum speed Skarmory and to get the jump on mimunum speed Poltioed and KO it with Thunderbolt. [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS] You can option for a Life Orb if you don't like to be locked into one move, but the power drop and recoil damage will add up. With the given EVs, you outspeed all Choice Band and Bulky Swords Dance Scizor. But 252 Speed Scizor out speeds Magnezone and can OHKO Magnezone with Superpower. The HP EVs guarantees that Special Attack Politoed has a 6.25% chance to OHKO Magnezone in the rain.Which you can retaliate with Volt Switch or Thunderbolt Blissey and other special walls will completely wall Magnezone even with a Choice Specs. Conkeldurr serves a great partner for Magnezone to remove special walls. [SET] name: Substitute + 3 Attacks move 1: Substitute move 2: Thunderbolt move 3: Hidden Power Fire / Hidden Power Ice move 4: Flash Cannon item: Leftovers nature: Timid ability: Magnet Pull evs: 36 HP / 252 SpA / 220 Spe ivs: 2 Atk / 30 SpA / 30 Spe [SET COMMENTS] Magnezone's Bread and butter set. Sub on an opposing steel and rack up Charge Beam boost Out speeds ever version of Scizor expect the rare Jolly Nature Scizor. Magnezone should not be used to try an Jirachi or Lucario as both can easily dispose of Magnezone with ease. [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS] Tyranitar can also switch in with relative ease with this set. EVs allow for the perfect number for Substitute for Magnezone Leftovers is needed for HP recovery behind the substitute Gastrodon completely walls Magnezone and can proceed to use Earthquake or Earth Power. Hidden Power can be used if Landorus and Landorus-T or Dragons are a problem for your team. You can option for Signal Beam to hit Celebi and other Psychic types hard. With Signal Beam you can 2HKO a Special defensive Celebi who normally walls you. Starmie is an amazing partner offensively and good for spinning away entry hazards for a Magnezone [SET] name: Dual Screen move 1: Hidden Power Fire move 2: Volt Switch move 3: Reflect move 4: Light Screen item: Leftovers nature: Careful ability: Magnet Pull evs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe ivs: 2 Atk / 30 SpA / 30 Spe [SET COMMENTS] The EVs allow you to have survive a non-specs Politoed's Hydro Pump in the rain. The EVs allow you to survive a Modest Keldeo's Hydro Pump and lets you retaliate back with a Volt Switch and take Keldeo health down to around 63.77 - 76.16%. With 252 in Special Defense Tornadus-T and Thundurus-T's Focus Blast can't OHKO Magnezone at full health before a Light Screen. [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS] [Other Options] You can option for a Choice Scarf Magnezone. With the Choice Scarf Magnezone hits 360 which is able to outrun Base 110 Pokemon without a Scarf. Magneton is by far a better choice. Magneton can revenge kill a +1 Dragonite, speed tie with Scarf Toed, and outspeed Tornadus-T. [Checks and Counters] Magnezone is vulnerable to revenge-killing because of its below average speed; Blissey, Chansey, and Gastrodon are perfect counters to Magnezone. Celebi also can stop Magnezone as it resist Magnezone STAB an proceed to use Earth Power Despite Magnezone's bulk STAB ground moves will always OHKO Magnezone, a Pokemon with levitate would be great for Magnezone.
