    I spent quite a lot of time trying to look up for you, but couldn't find anything. Idk if this helps uncover the mystery, but with that investment, it reaches the same spA as uninvested base 125s, which for common(ish) mons include Hydreigon and Reuniclus. So maybe its something to do with...

    Thanks for the helpful post. Vish seems pretty good since there doesn't seem to be much protect spam on balance other than perhaps baneful on pex, so ill try predicting with psychic fangs to put pex into fishous rend range reliably.

    So that sun replay above pisses me off. I'm sorry this more of a complaint than a question, but are there any good players out there that do well in tours or ladder consistently with only having to pp stall on a very rare basis? Both players didnt care much about preserving their offensive...

    Hi I recently lost to this team: Ditto+bandUrsh+leftiesMage+Mandi+Chans+knockPex (I don't know other set details than that) This is the team I use: https://pokepast.es/822010ed4246b48d I had trouble getting past Pex+Ditto cuz Pex would force my Mage to either only Volt, or Trick and thus lose...

    Yep it's been a great taunter for the past few gens. Just commenting that I'd find Mental Herb as a very attractive option on this, just to turn the tables on opposing faster taunters and possibly toxic something else, since from my experience the opponent often switches out if their taunt lead...

    I'm fine with Ursh and Ace being banned after Mage, as long as that means afterwards Pex will get banned for being an unhealthy centralizer that makes playing defense too easy.

    You should also consider neutralities for typing too. spDef Excadrill is a popular partner for Mandibuzz. Often Pex or Amoongus is added to these two. For this current meta with Mage still around, here's a core many people are using (though I'm not sure Mandibuzz's EVs are the best) ...

    I think many people are opting for TW over WoW because it threatens/checks Ace, Volc, and Zam (also I note that it helps more against any SG Mage or scarf Togekiss), while teammate Excadrill is running more Toxic these days to affect Mandi anyways. However on the other hand, a couple downsides...

    I'm using 252+ SpA Rotom-H with boots, stabs, nasty plot, & pain split. It's typing + levitate is pretty good role compression in this meta since it also checks like rillaboom, clef, togekiss, scizor, and to a degree zera and cinderace. It can actually also threaten chansey & stall/defense...

    Thanks for sharing, eBelt seems like a solid set. It can probably surprise some mons that think they can setup safely on rachi. The below set is more meme-ish, but the high 140 BP of Doom plus Specs makes up for rachi's 100 spA stat. Against more offensive teams lacking certain fat like...

    two cents: meteor beam could even be a dragon move for all we know (didn't see anyone consider the possibility), and how come like everyone is 110% sure the shell side arm move is slowbro-g's sig, even tho we've never seen a clear image of what slowbro-g looks like?

    My main issue with the Choice Specs set, is that there's more protect spam this gen. Combine that with a SR weak mon, and specs looks better on paper than in practice to me. For a wallbreaking role, having access to a +2 boosting move (like SD or NP) is a major factor to determining viability imo

    I'd agree with DrPumpkinz comment, a Torrent boosted Aria is powerful from Prima. I'd point out that alternatively a benefit of Scald is your chance to burn Ferros and provide an earlier chance for 'Tricity to destroy their defense. Also, Zeraora would kill your Celebi coming in: 252 Atk Life...
