    Additional Comments:

    • Outclassed by Doryuuzu easily.
    • Could run Choice Band instead of Life Orb for more Attack.

    Teammates & Counters:

    • Tyranitar and Hippodown are good for starting sand.
    • Ghost-type is great for taking Fighting-type attacks aimed at Muurando.
    • Bulky Ground- and Steel-types cause problems for Muurando
    • Magnezone can set up on Steel-types that Muurando has problems with.
    • Priority attacks hurt Muurando especially Super Effective Mach Punch.
