Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk

Toxicroak @ Life Orb
Ability: Dry Skin
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Nasty Plot
- Vacuum Wave
- Sludge Wave
- Dark Pulse

NP Toxicroak is able to one-shot -2 Barbaracle with an unboosted Vacuum Wave while even potentially being able to come in on a baited Razor Shell if the need arises thanks to Dry Skin. Additionally, it can tank a specs Moonblast if it is healthy (or can take advantage of a Energy Ball lock) and KOs back with Sludge Wave, although it needs to be careful of LO variants as they can just switch moves and KO with Psychic.

Congrats Rwby Martin !
Here’s this week’s core, featuring Barbaracle’s ugly cousin. Omastar can set up on Pokemon that trap Mismagius like Sneasel.

Omastar @ Waterium Z
Ability: Weak Armor
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Shell Smash
- Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam
- Hidden Power [Grass]

Mismagius @ Colbur Berry
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Nasty Plot
- Shadow Ball
- Dazzling Gleam
- Taunt

Pyukumuku @ Poisonium Z
Ability: Unaware
EVs: 252 HP / 216 Def / 40 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Toxic
- Recover
- Soak
- Counter

Probably the only defensive counter to this core. Z toxic goes through taunt and pyuku and can either switch out or stay in a bit to toxic stall
252 SpA Mismagius Shadow Ball vs. 252 HP / 40 SpD Pyukumuku: 87-103 (27.7 - 32.8%) -- guaranteed 4HKO

252 SpA Omastar Hidden Power Grass vs. 252 HP / 40 SpD Pyukumuku: 94-112 (29.9 - 35.6%) -- 29.4% chance to 3HKO

Reserving Virizion.


Virizion @ Rockium Z
Ability: Justified
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Close Combat
- Leaf Blade
- Stone Edge

Virizion is able to naturally outspeed Mismagius and SD up on it despite Mismagius carrying Dazzling Gleam due to it's great special bulk. It outspeeds Omastar if it's not boosted and can easily OHKO with Leaf Blade.

252 SpA Mismagius Dazzling Gleam vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Virizion: 122-144 (37.7 - 44.5%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
+2 252 Atk Virizion Leaf Blade vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Mismagius: 346-408 (132.5 - 156.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 Atk Virizion Leaf Blade vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Omastar: 376-448 (133.8 - 159.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Ditto @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Imposter
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Transform


Thanks to its wonderous ability, Ditto basically prevents either of the mons from setting up due to fear of a countersweep, and abuses the fact that Missy OHKOs itself after Stealth Rock, with Omastar only needing 5% chip damage and SR to get a good chance of OHKOing itself, let alone after a Shell Smash.

Reserving Virizion.

Btw Garay oak idk how effective Pyukumuku would be due to Mismagius having taunt.
I explained it .-. Z toxic goes through taunt.

Delphox @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Blaze
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Fire Blast
- Psychic
- Grass Knot
- Trick

Scarf Delphox outruns +2 Omastar and one-shots it with Grass Knot. Additionally, while it can't one-shot Mismagius from full health, it is able to pick it off if it is taken down to about 60% and it can also just barely survive an unboosted Shadow Ball from full health in a pinch if it really needs to get two hits off versus it and you can't afford to use something else to take Mismagius on.
