    So yeah, this needs a set because it's good.
    QC: [3/3] [Charmander, iss, Hawkstar]
    GP: [2/2] [mikel, jukain]

    [Set]
    name: Trick + Choice Specs
    move 1: Trick
    move 2: Nasty Plot
    move 3: Shadow Ball
    move 4: Hidden Power Fighting
    item: Choice Specs
    ability: Levitate
    nature: Timid
    evs: 240 SpA / 240 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p> The combination of Choice Specs and Nasty Plot might seem like a weird idea at first, but when used in conjunction with Trick, it is a very reliable and surprising way to quickly disorient your opponent and let Misdreavus grab a Nasty Plot boost. This set works based off of the fact that most of Misdreavus's counters hate being Tricked Choice Specs. The first thing Misdreavus should aim to do is to Trick its Choice Specs away to an unsuspecting opponent. Then, they will either be locked into a move that Misdreavus can set up on, or they will be forced to switch. Either way, Misdreavus will have a window of opportunity to set up with Nasty Plot, boosting its Special Attack to frightening levels. Shadow Ball is Misdreavus's main attacking option. It's a reliable STAB move that has perfect accuracy and is powerful both with Choice Specs attached and after a Nasty Plot boost. Hidden Power Fighting is then used to give perfect coverage alongside Shadow Ball, hitting Dark- and Steel-types for super effective damage.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>The EVs give Misdreavus maximum Speed and Special Attack to make it as fast and powerful as possible. In the last slot, Thunderbolt can be used instead of Hidden Power Fighting if hitting Murkrow and Vullaby on the switch is important. If Misdreavus does not use Hidden Power Fighting, it can use an EV spread of 36 HP / 236 SpA / 236 Spe instead, as the extra EVs will not be needed to cover for Hidden Power Fighting's drop in Speed and Special Attack. This gives Misdreavus a bit more bulk, helping it take attacks better.</p>

    <p>Misdreavus appreciates having Murkrow removed, so Electric-types such as Chinchou and Magnemite are great partners. Magnemite can also trap and remove Pawniard, whose Sucker Punch can give Misdreavus trouble. Misdreavus also likes having special walls, such as Porygon or Lickitung, as well as Pursuit trappers, such as Stunky or Pawniard, removed. Fighting-types such as Mienfoo, Scraggy, and Timburr are perfect teammates to play either role, as they can hit Normal-type walls and Dark-type Pursuit users for super effective damage. Abra and other fast Pokemon can be threats to Misdreavus as well, so Pokemon that can wall, remove, or cripple those threats also pair well with Misdreavus. Porygon can paralyze them with Thunder Wave, and bait in Fighting-types for Misdreavus to switch into and then set up on.</p>

    Honestly Electro, I just don't see Specs Missy as viable enough for an analysis. Nearly all of the calcs you provide are 2HKOs, not OHKOs. This leads me to think that it wouldn't provide the power a Specs mon should possess.

    Murkrow, as you know, is extremely common, and is the #3 most used poke in the tier. 72% carry Sucker Punch, which completely wrecks Missy unless you Trick.

    Th only way I think this deserves to be on-site is if it is the last set

This set works based off of the fact that most of Misdreavus's I know about these appostraphies. If my memory serves you can have it the way you already have it, or you can make it this Misdreavus'. Whatever suits you. counters hate being Tricked into Choice Specs. The first thing Misdreavus should aim to do is to Trick its Specs away to an unsuspecting opponent -then,they will either be locked into a move that Misdreavus can set up on, or they will be forced to switch. whatever they decide to do Either way, Misdreavus will have a window of opportunity to set up with Nasty Plot, boosting its Special Attack to frightening levels. Shadow Ball is Misdreavus's attacking option. It's reliable STAB that has perfect accuracy, and can be used both with a Specs or after a Nasty Plot boost. Hidden Power Fighting is then used to form perfect coverage with Shadow Ball, hitting Dark- and Steel-types for super effective damage.</p>

In the last slot, Thunderbolt can be used instead of Hidden Power Fighting if hitting Murkrow and Vullaby on the switch are important. If Misdreavus does not use Hidden Power Fighting, it will be able to use a spread of 36 HP / 236 SpA / 236 Spe instead, as the extra EVs will not be needed to cover for Hidden Power Fighting's point drop in Speed and Special Attack. This gives Misdreavus a bit more bulk, helping it take certain attacks better.</p>

    <p>Great teammates to this Misdreavus are pretty much the same as with the other Misdreavus sets. Misdreavus appreciates having Murkrow removed, so Electric-types such as Chinchou and Magnemite are great partners. Magnemite can also trap and remove Pawniard, whose Sucker Punch could give Misdreavus trouble. Misdreavus also likes having would like to have special walls, such as Porygon or Lickitung, removed. It also hates Pursuit trappers such as Stunky or Pawniard. Fighting-types such as Mienfoo, Scraggy, or Timburr are perfect teammates for both roles, as they can hit Normal-type walls and Dark-type Pursuit users for super effective damage. Abra and other faster Pokemon are threats to Misdreavus as well, so Pokemon that can wall, remove, or cripple those threats also pair well with Misdreavus. Porygon can paralyze them with Thunder Wave, and bait in Fighting-types for Misdreavus to switch into and then set up on.</p>
