Middling speed sash dragapult, strong dynamaxer even if in the first slot or alternatively can be used to waste dmax. He prioritsed the adamant nature over the speed so dragon darts can pressure outside the mirror which was seen to be more valuable. Vs. Aegislash, Phantom Force can break through kings shield so it is possible to come out with a win vs. WP Aegi on an attack -> King shield -> Sucker Punch, similar with sash aegi tho you brought down to sash. Although the matchup vs. scarf hydreigon and darm is not too disadvantageous, u-turn is sucky so this lead matchup should be avoided.
Specs, a strong second dynamaxer if need be or just generally strong poke. Best to lead hippowdon and then use this later on in the battle. Was added because Hydreigon and Dragon Darts Dragapult are annoying matchups but wasn't selected too many times because of opposing aegislash or other checks. When it was selected it put in work.
Its a cushion/pivot similar with Ferrothorn too. It's part of the TOD (Its like a term for timer stalling on Cartridge). Basically a switch into fire type attacks that would threaten Ferro. Haze because Mimikyu + Snorlax Exist. The games will be very slow if there is no toxic so there ya go.
Secondary cushion selected with toxapex. It covers the pokemon that pex cant deal with well such as Gyarados, Rotom-W, Lapras, Excadrill etc.
Power whip is on because you cannot defeat these opponents without it. It can fall to dynamaxed opponents in some cases that can be unfavourable so watch out for that.
Dynamax lead. Originally was gonna be sitrus iron head yawn. Dynamaxing is good with this due to its surprise factor and your life orb since no-one really expected Dynamax hippo lead. You could win games by suprise dynamaxing and then winning based off numerical advantage later in the game. Reason that Stone Edge > Thunder Fang is cause of Rotom-H
AV Rotom-H for Togekiss. Will use it as a counterdynamaxer when faced vs Togekiss or Durant. Pretty good as a non-dynamaxer otherwise.
Election basically is use a Dynamaxer, non-dynamaxer and a cushion, if one side of the cushion couldnt deal with the opponents team you can select both cushions. This ties into selecting a dynamax lead and then winning based on numerical advantage with Ferro/Toxapex.
Snorlax, Darm-Galar, Corviknight. Can exchange with Darm galar with Dragon Darts sucker. Snorlax can switch into Hippo but you can break through with Max Knuckle
Other general shit, mimi and ohko mons like lapras/drill.
This is only a very quick translation that is like a real skim so probably isn't accurate, but hope that helps.
