-it’s just like Blissey except bulkier.
-Can’t utilize items due to eviolite, which really sucks.
-Much harder to use in VGC, but still a good Pokemon.
name: Special Wall
move 1: Toxic
move 2: Softboiled
move 3: Seismic Toss
move 4: Protect / Minimize
ability: Natural Cure
evs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SpD
-classic annoying special wall.
-Chansey has better defenses than Blissey, so it basically does the same thing Blissey does except better.
-The only negative aspect of Chansey is its inability to utilize an item due to eviolite. This means it can't use chople berry or leftovers, while Blissey can.
-Set is exactly the same as Blissey's.
-Toxic does damage.
-Softboiled to heal and stall with toxic.
-Seismic Toss to damage steel types, and prevent Chansey from being locked into struggle after a taunt.
-protect to avoid fighting attacks, and also to stall with toxic.
-Minimize can be used in place of protect to REALLY make your opponent want to ragequit. It is a viable move on Chansey due to its extreme bulk. Although it relies on luck, it can potentially protect Chansey from fighting attacks that would normally kill it.
-Stalling is very hard to do in VGC, but is still possible.
-4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SpD provides a 13% increase to special bulk at the expense of 9% physical bulk when compared to a 252 HP / 252 Def / SpD. Chansey will still survive an unboosted Adamant max Atk Close Combat from Hitmontop. However, if you want as much physical bulk as possible, 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD is still a viable set.
-Chansey is a huge threat to rain teams, since they rely mainly on strong special attacks.
-Chansey can totally destroy special attackers, as long as its teammate can deal with physical attackers for it.
-Intimidate users such as Hitmontop, Gyarados, Salamence, and Arcanine are great partners for weakening opposing physical attackers.
-Follow me/Rage Powder users such as Amoongus, Volcarona, and Togekiss are also great.
-Sableye, Dusclops, and Dusknoir can render Chansey's arch nemeses completely useless with Will-O-Wisp.
-Latios and Reuniclus can destroy all the fighting types that Chansey hates.
-Prankster Taunt users like Whimsicott and Thundurus can shut down opposing taunt users that could potentially cause trouble for Chansey.
-Reflect users, especially Cresselia since it can also damage opposing fighting types.
-Shuckle can use Guard Split to boost Chansey's Def, making it nearly unstoppable.
-Moves such as Charge Beam+Serene Grace or Calm mind are viable in singles, but with the VGC timer Chansey is unlikely to have the time to set up. The timer can also work in Chansey's favor, however, if your goal is to stall out your opponents.
-Counter, although no chople berry makes this hard.
-Substitute with huge HP stat.
-Charm, can be very useful for physical threats.
-Thunder Wave (not good with Toxic)
-Healer is sooooo much better than Natural Cure, but is unfortunately illegal with Seismic Toss, and, unless you want to be walled by Steels and taunted to death, you should have Seismic Toss.
-Rock slide. Paralyze opponents, send out Chansey with Serene Grace and another rock slide user, and paraflinch your opponent to death.
[Checks and Counters]
-Physical fighting types
-Chansey takes physical attacks much better than Blissey with an eviolite-boosted defense. However, it is still notably weaker on the physical side, so physical attackers will be able to do a lot more damage to it.
-Especialy physical steel types, since they are not damaged by toxic.
-Since its goal is to stall, perish song can be a problem.
