Vanilluxe [SET] name: Autotomize move 1: Autotomize move 2: Blizzard move 3: Hidden Power Ground move 4: Substitute item: Life Orb ability: Ice Body nature: Modest evs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe [SET COMMENTS] Autotomize Vanilluxe is the fastest Ice-type sweeper you can find for a Hail team, while maintaining a great deal of power (let's just say Articuno is weak, ok?). After one boost Vanilluxe reaches 514 Speed, which only a few Pokémon in the tier can possibly beat. Vanilluxe should only be used on a hail team, so Blizzard is its STAB move of choice. Hidden Power Ground covers the most threats that resists Blizzard, which includes Fire-types, Lanturn, Magneton, and Qwilfish. Substitute gives Vanilluxe plenty of setup opportunities against Pokemon which uses status moves etc., while protecting it from damage in general. A great tool for Vanilluxe to use, as its barren movepool gives it barely any options. [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS] Hidden Power Fighting will OHKO Rotom-F after Stealth Rock, who is otherwise 2HKOed by Blizzard after Stealth Rock and is immune to Hidden Power Ground. Will also hit Piloswine, Cryogonal, Thick Fat Miltank, and Walrein harder than Blizzard. Loses the ability to hit Fire-types super effectively (Blizzard still hits Moltres), as well as Lanturn and Qwilfish. Hidden Power Rock gives Vanilluxe super effective coverage against Fire-types, while still hitting Rotom-F, Cryogonal, and other Ice-types for super effective damage as well; won't hit Piloswine for super effective damage though. Flash Cannon gives Vanilluxe an option for hitting Piloswine (a clean 2HKO), Cryogonal, and other Ice-types, except for Walrein, for super effective damage if using Hidden Power Ground; will not outdamage Blizzard against Rotom-F. To be used over Substitute, but Substitute is usually better, and will give Vanilluxe a much more useful protection from status and ease of setting up. Timid nature can be used to beat +2 Modest Lilligant and Timid Choice Scarf Galvantula after one boost, as well as Adamant Gallade and Kabutops unboosted, but is usually unecessary and Vanilluxe will appreciate the extra power a Modest nature provides much more. Petaya Berry is a good option over Life Orb. Works great with Substitute and Ice Body, giving it more longevity while maintaining the power. Leftovers can be used if you want Vanilluxe to stay around for a bit longer, but the power Life Orb brings to the table is to good to pass up. Vanilluxe is a late-game sweeper and isn't meant to stay for long on the field, and Substitute is often an one-time use. Rapid Spin support. Cryogonal because of hail. Kabutops works. Poliwrath, Uxie, Miltank, Escavalier, Spiritomb are all great partners due to their typing and abilities, etc. Entry hazards help. Miltank can set up Stealth Rock. So can Uxie. Qwilfish is a good candidate for Spikes.
