Fairy demolishes ghost. Klefki can set up screens and is immune to sludge wave from gengar and can thunder wave it. Mega diancie doesn't have a reliable switch in vs ghost but moonblast+Diamond storm doesn't kill Jellicent with no hazards. +6 Azumarril 6-0s behind reflect and golurks sash is broken.

Normal "Balanced" Core: Chansey + Porygon2 + Ditto



The tried and true Chansey +p2 core is still so difficult for Dragon to break, despite the addition of Naganadel. Chansey is here to stomach the special nukes, p2 stomachs the physical ones, and Ditto is there to completely threaten offensive setup from NP Naganadel and DD Altaria alike.

Sets:
Chansey @ Eviolite
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Thunder Wave
- Stealth Rock
- Seismic Toss
- Soft-Boiled

Porygon2 @ Eviolite
Ability: Download
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Recover

- Foul Play

Reserving a Rock core around Mega Diancie, Shuckle, and STAKATAKA THE GOD

My time has come

Rock Core



Stakataka @ Life Orb
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Lonely Nature
IVs: 14 Def / 0 Spe
- Gyro Ball
- Stone Edge
- Trick Room
- Earthquake

Diancie-Mega @ Diancite
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty Nature
- Diamond Storm
- Moonblast
- Earth Power
- Rock Polish

Shuckle @ Mental Herb
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
Impish Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Sticky Web
- Knock Off
- Encore


So as it turns out, Stakataka is actually a half decent choice for Rock. And this core does an amazing job against this Dragon team. The most ideal scenario for this team is to get up Stealth Rock, click Rock Polish with Mega Diancie and just 6-0, but it ends up being more complicated than that. In the scenario that it does get up a Rock Polish, probably against an Encored Naganadel if it ever tries to set up in front of Shuckle, it just ends everything:

252 SpA Diancie-Mega Moonblast vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Garchomp: 416-492 (116.2 - 137.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 SpA Diancie-Mega Earth Power vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Dragalge: 296-350 (103.1 - 121.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 SpA Diancie-Mega Moonblast vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Altaria-Mega: 348-410 (98.3 - 115.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock
252 SpA Diancie-Mega Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Latios: 336-396 (111.6 - 131.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 SpA Diancie-Mega Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 0- SpD Kyurem-Black: 440-522 (112.5 - 133.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 SpA Diancie-Mega Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Dragonite: 362-428 (112 - 132.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO


It can usually find the opportunity to Rock Polish after receiving a Defense boost from Diamond Storm, taking a Frustration from Mega Altaria. The other way this core wins is through Stakataka. It very easily sets up TR against Naganadel and Latios, the 2 Pokemon that outspeed Mega Diancie, as well as effortlessly setting up in front of Mega Altaria. And after a Trick Room, nothing comes in on Gyro, especially not after a +1.

252+ Atk Life Orb Bastiodon Gyro Ball (150 BP) vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Garchomp: 368-434 (102.7 - 121.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ Atk Life Orb Bastiodon Gyro Ball (150 BP) vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Latios: 425-500 (141.1 - 166.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ Atk Life Orb Bastiodon Gyro Ball (100 BP) vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Dragalge: 305-360 (106.2 - 125.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+1 252+ Atk Life Orb Bastiodon Stone Edge vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Multiscale Dragonite: 368-434 (113.9 - 134.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO(after a single boost it won't need Stealth Rock to guarantee this KO)
252+ Atk Life Orb Bastiodon Gyro Ball (150 BP) vs. 252 HP / 16+ Def Altaria-Mega: 580-686 (163.8 - 193.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ Atk Life Orb Bastiodon Gyro Ball (150 BP) vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Kyurem-Black: 704-829 (180 - 212%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Ground: Mega Steelix Offense!





Hippowdon @ Eject Button
Ability: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 80 Def / 176 SpD
Impish Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Earthquake
- Slack Off
- Whirlwind

This is the UU Mixed set. It works well because you're guaranteed to live Devastating Drake after rocks 100% of the time, giving you a free switch to something that beats Nagandel. That's basically all it's used for besides setting sand for drill and steelix.



Excadrill @ Steelium Z
Ability: Sand Rush
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Iron Head
- Earthquake
- Swords Dance
- Rock Slide

Basically the center of the team. Sand rush drill is one of your ways to beat Naganadel, while also beating Lati and Kyurem-B under sand. Usually would be Adamant, but Jolly was chosen because it outspeeds Naganadel at +1 under sand, as well as the entire team otherwise. Steelium Z is solely for either Latios or Kyurem, more so Lati because it picks up the kill. You can also use Iron Plate or Life Orb if you want more consistent damage output, but the one time nuke to kill something is nice to have.




Steelix-Mega @ Steelixite
Ability: Sand Force
EVs: 252 HP / 16 Atk / 128 Def / 112 SpD
Impish Nature
- Heavy Slam
- Earthquake
- Toxic / Sleep Talk
- Rest

I chose M-Steelix because it helps me outside of sand vs stuff like D-Nite and Altaria. The spread itself does several things. 252 HP + 112 SpD lets you not get OHKO'd by +2 Devastating Drake, as well as avoiding the the 2HKO 100% of the time from Jolly/Adamant M-Alt. The 16 ATK evs are for a guaranteed OHKO on M-Alt w/Heavy Slam. Rest poured in defense. Made it Rest for longevity, but remember, Naganadel can set up on you and kill w/ Flamthrower after a np. Just a warning.

 
Ghost Core


Gengar @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Cursed Body
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Sludge Wave
- Shadow Ball
- Focus Blast
- Dazzling Gleam

Mimikyu @ Mimikium Z
Ability: Disguise
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Play Rough
- Shadow Claw
- Shadow Sneak

Sableye-Mega @ Sablenite
Ability: Prankster
EVs: 248 HP / 148 Def / 112 SpD
Careful Nature
- Will-O-Wisp
- Recover
- Knock Off
- Protect



Ghost has an easy time with dragon with Gengar out speeding everything, mimikyu being fairy and Mega Sableye being obnoxious. Gengar 2hkos everything but dragonite with multiscale with sludge wave, shadow ball and dazzling gleam. It out speeds everything but scarf latios which is a speed tie. It can switch in on mega-altaria using frustration.
Mimikyu is immune to dragon and can clean up late game with mimikium z it ohkos nagandel which is the biggest threat to ghost. Mega Sableye protects ghost against hazards while walling Garchomp and latios every time. They can't be locked into dragon moves since Mimikyu can easily switch in. Mega Sableye and Mimikyu together is very hard for dragon to deal with.
