Zeraora @ Assault Vest
Ability: Volt Absorb
EVs: 200 HP / 84 Atk / 32 SpD / 192 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Fake Out
- Plasma Fists / Knock Off
- Snarl / Hidden Power Fire
- Volt Switch

Assault Vest Zeraora is an effective pivot and supportive Pokemon in the Doubles metagame thanks to Volt Switch, decent bulk, and solid utility moves like Fake Out, Knock Off, and Snarl. Access to these three moves as well as a better Speed tier set Zeraora apart from its main competitor, Tapu Koko. Speaking of Tapu Koko, Zeraora is able to nearly completely shut it down thanks to Volt Absorb. The EV spread lets Zeraora outpace Mega Manectric as well as survive a Bloom Doom from -1 Attack Kartana or a Rain-boosted Hydro Vortex from Kingdra. You should take into account that this Zeraora lacks firepower, so strong offensive partners are appreciated a lot. Setup sweepers like Zygarde and Mega Latias enjoy support from Zeraora's Fake Out and Snarl. The likes of Kyurem-B and Incineroar can deal with Grass-types, which Zeraora struggles with; the former also threatens Ground-types, as do Tapu Fini and Kartana.

This one might be your best yet, I have very little to add. If you can find a way to work in a mention of Volt Switch making it a great pivot, that's the only thing I'd like to see represented somewhere.

Nice work, QC 1/1
