    As an additional point in favor of Archeops, it can kill itself off using Head Smash (assuming you are brought to sash) to prevent a spin or defog while dealing substantial damage in the process. Albeit 80% accurate, Aero can only provide this additional utility if it forgoes coverage for...

    I disagree. I think that you do need to account for Absol on every team. It has the power to tear through all offensive teams with Sucker Punch and SD to do the same to defensive and balance teams. In my opinion, he's more dangerous than Tyrantrum because of the versatility within one set. It...

    To be fair, it really doesn't stop M-Abomasnow in its tracks. It gets demolished by Wood Hammer and most SD Abomasnows run enough speed to beat base 50s if I remember correctly. Hariyama is great but saying it stops M-Aboma is overselling. It's a check at best, but only on predicted ice moves...

    The one additional note I'd like to make for my support on Mawile is that is also provides offense with an Absol counter, a Tyrantrum check/potential counter, a Scrafty counter, a Stealth Rocker, and a pivot using baton pass all in one slot. That's a lot of utility and role compression for...

    Thank you all for your replies! Based on the feedback I have opted to make some changes. They'll be listed in red in the OP as well. 252 Spe EV's on Samurott to outspeed Scrafty 252 HP/96 Att+/ 160 SpD spread on M-Steelix (Thanks Fran!) The big seller on this is that it still OHKO's Fletchinder...
  14. Samurott Runs RU (Peaked #1 @ 1453)

    Hey Arifeen, thanks for the reply and suggestions. To your points: I am very much considering running additional speed EV's. I didn't realize that the threshold for outspeeding Scrafty was within such close reach. While I do believe that the additional EV's in HP are meaningful, this is a...
