Aerodactyl @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Unnerve
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Stone Edge
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock
- Roost

The fearsome fossil Aerodactyl has been great in NU as of late, significantly improving with Bronzong's departure. While its typing is not particularly good, it can defensively deal with Salazzle and Talonflame consistently (albeit risking status) and tanks weaker hits such as Xatu's Psychic. Aerodactyl has great coverage with Stone Edge and Earthquake and its high Speed affords it many opportunities to take advantage of it. It checks relatively fast Pokemon like Salazzle and Heliolisk; however, Aerodactyl lacks the raw strength to get past foes like Vaporeon, Mudsdale, and Silvally-Ground. This makes wallbreakers like Dragalge and Machamp that are able to soften up bulky foes for it good partners. Clerics such as Sylveon and Vaporeon are able to remove any status Aerodactyl gets inflicted with from foes like Salazzle and Talonflame. They also deal with Choice Scarf users that check Aerodactyl such as Rotom-Mow and Passimian.

Check out how well Aerodactyl can pressure the opposition in confide vs stresh during the NeverUsed Snake Draft!

The fearsome fossil Aerodactyl has been great in NU as of late, significantly improving with Bronzong's departure. Aerodactyl has an amazing speed tier, decent attack, and utility with Stealth Rock making it a valuable addition. (this sentence tells me nothing about what aerodactyl does; you need to be more concise and explain aerodactyl's actual function. you sort of do this with two sentences later; make that content work more with this sentence.) While its typing is not particularly great, it defensively can deal with Salazzle and Talonflame consistently (albeit risking status) and tanks weaker hits such as Sylveon's Moonblast Xatu's Psychic. Aerodactyl fits best on bulky offense teams as it has great coverage with Stone Edge and Earthquake and checks relatively fast Pokemon like Salazzle and Heliolisk. (i truly do not know what this sentence aims to tell me; edgequake coverage is not a prerequisite for bulky offense teams, nor is being fast.) Aerodactyl lacks the raw strength to get past foes like Vaporeon, Mudsdale, and Silvally-Ground. This makes wallbreakers like Dragalge and Machamp that are able to soften up teams for it good partners. In return, Aerodactyl wears down bulky Pokemon like Escavalier and Sylveon with Stealth Rock. (Definitely mention clerics as teammates given they prevent Aerodactyl from being cucked by Talonflame Will-O)

nuke the sentence about the breakers liking Stealth Rock because that applies to every offensive Pokemon ever

maybe talk about how Aerodactyl is weak to pretty much every revenge killer not named Talonflame and address some defensive teammates?

qc 1/1 when done

While its typing is not particularly great good (avoids repetition), it defensively can defensively deal with Salazzle and Talonflame consistently (albeit risking status) and tanks weaker hits such as Xatu's Psychic.
