WIP Bewear (Normal)

[OVERVIEW]

Normal
========

Bewear actúa como un wallbreaker físico para equipos Normal ofensivos con su alto stat de ataque base de 125 y acceso a Swords Dance , que le permite desmantelar cores defensivos como los de los equipos Water, Steel y Poison. Tiene un alto stat de HP y la habilidad Fluffy, lo que le permite recibir daño reducido de ataques de contacto y por consiguiente poder enfrentar poderosos usuarios de prioridad como Belly Drum Azumarill, Mega Scizor y Dragonite, los cuales suponen una amenaza a equipos Normal ofensivos. Sin embargo, su habilidad lo hace recibir daño doble de ataques Fire-type, haciéndolo vulnerable de Pokémon como Heatran. Bewear tiene también bajos stats de Special Defense y Speed, haciéndolo vulnerable a atacantes especiales rápidos como Tapu Koko, Hydreigon y Landorus. Como wallbreaker, Bewear tiene competencia contra Diggersby, que no solo tiene la habilidad Huge Power, sino también prioridad en Quick Attack y una importante inmunidad a movimientos Electric-type.

Moves
========

Swords Dance permite a Bewear potenciar su ya buen stat de Atack a niveles más altos, dejando tumbar murallas como Toxapex y Slowbro. Return es su ataque por STAB Normal-type y tiene una buena cobertura en conjunto con su STAB Fighting-type, y cuando es usado con Normalium Z, se convierte en un Breackneck Blitz con 160 de Base Power que le permiten ocuparse de Mega Venusaur, Mandibuzz, Swampert y Toxapex después de un boost de Swords Dance. Superpower takes care of Steel- and Rock-types such as Ferrothorn and Mega Tyranitar. It also hits Pokemon such as Mega Scizor and Celesteela for more damage than any other move on the set. Ice Punch allows Bewear to deal with Ground- and Flying-type Pokemon such as Gliscor, Landorus-T, and Dragonite.

Set Details
========

Maximum Attack investment with an Adamant nature optimizes Bewear's overall damage output. Maximum Speed investment is used to make Bewear outspeed Pokemon such as Belly Drum Azumarill and Alolan Golem. Fluffy lets Bewear take contact moves better and check Pokemon like Mega Scizor more effectively. Normalium Z turns Return into Breakneck Blitz, letting Bewear wallbreak effectively.

Usage Tips
========

Against a bulky team like Poison or Water, Bewear should focus on setting up Swords Dance in order to wallbreak; it can do so against Pokemon that do not threaten it like Alolan Muk. Against offensive types such as Dragon and Electric that lack a strong defensive backbone, it is best to focus on directly attacking more with Bewear, as it will hardly get a safe chance to set up Swords Dance against fast-paced teams. As Z-Moves are one-time use only, be sure not to waste Bewear's Z-Move on any target, as without it, Bewear will find it hard to wallbreak threats like Toxpaex, Mega Venusaur, and Slowbro. Bewear is vulnerable to status such as burns and Toxic poison, so it should not be used to recklessly take Scald and should be kept away from Toxic Spikes. To take full advantage of Bewear as a wallbreaker, it needs opportunities to set up and attack and thus should be brought in the battle via aggressive double switches, through U-turn support or after a Pokemon has fainted. Even though Bewear has decent physical bulk thanks to its ability in Fluffy, it should not be directly switched into contact attacks too often and should be kept healthy to prevent threats such as Belly Drum Azumarill and Choice Band Extreme Speed Dragonite from cleaning late-game.

Team Options
========

Smeargle is a good partner for Bewear, as it can set up Stealth Rock to score easier KOs, cripple a Pokemon with Spore to provide chances for Bewear to set up Swords Dance, and provide Sticky Web support so Bewear can bypass its low Speed against grounded Pokemon. It can also utilize Nuzzle to slow down faster threats like Mega Diancie and Mega Gallade for Bewear. Diggersby can run a Choice Band set to overwhelm opposing teams with Bewear, as they form a very strong wallbreaking core, weakening down shared checks. Mega Pidgeot takes care of Fighting- and Grass-type Pokemon such as Mega Gallade and Tapu Bulu for Bewear. It also provides U-turn support, letting it come in safely against a predicted switch. If Bewear is not utilizing a Z-Move, then Porygon-Z is a fantastic teammate and an amazing sweeper late-game with its Z-Conversion set. It can take advantage of weakened walls by Bewear and clean late-game effectively, and it also does a good job threatening Psychic teams for Bewear. Ditto is a decent teammate, as it can take care of faster threats for Bewear such as Mega Pinsir, Mega Gallade, and Mega Altaria. Mega Lopunny and Bewear form a Steel-breaking core with Mega Lopunny providing the additional benefit of dealing with Ghost-type Pokemon like Mega Sableye, which Bewear fails to do. It can also act as a revenge killer or cleaner, taking advantage of its high Speed and the wallbreaking potential of Bewear. Staraptor can run a Choice Scarf set to take care of Fighting-type Pokemon such as Kommo-o and Keldeo that are troublesome for Bewear. Defensive Staraptor can use Defog to keep Bewear away from entry hazards like Spikes and Toxic Spikes and act as a sponge for physical attacks for it. Meloetta can run a Choice Specs set to aid Bewear in wallbreaking by taking care of Pokemon such as Hippowdon, Mega Slowbro, and Toxapex. In return, Bewear acts as a Knock Off switch-in to Pokemon like Bisharp and Alolan Muk that threaten Meloetta out.

Other Options
=============

Normal
--------
A Jolly nature can be used to outspeed neutral-natured base 70 Speed Pokemon like Breloom, Bisharp, and Metagross; however, the damage drop is noticeable, as Bewear fails to achieve a KO on Pokemon like Toxapex and Slowbro with Breakneck Blitz after a Swords Dance boost. A Choice Band set can be used to take advantage of the immediate power; however, it is heavily prediction-reliant and drains momentum if locked into a wrong move. Fightinium Z can be used to have better matchup against bulky Steel-type Pokemon such as Celesteela, Mega Scizor, and Skarmory.

Checks and Counters
===================

Normal
--------
**Ghost-types**: Ghost-types such as Mega Sableye and Cofagrigus easily wall Bewear due to their good bulk. They can cripple it with Will-O-Wisp, while Bewear hardly does any damage to them with its coverage moves. Cofagrigus can also use Bewear as fodder to set up Toxic Spikes or Trick Room against it.

**Fighting-types**: Fighting-types such as Kommo-o and Keldeo are threats to Bewear, as they can score OHKOs on it with their high Special Attack.

**Fire-types**: Due to Bewear's ability in Fluffy, it takes double damage from Fire-type attacks, so Pokemon such as Heatran, Blacephalon, and Victini can heavily damage or even OHKO it.

**Special Attackers**: Hard-hitting special attackers such as Tapu Koko, Choice Specs Pelipper, and Latios can easily OHKO Bewear with their STAB attacks, as it has a low Special Defense stat.

**Residual Damage and Status-Inducing Moves** As a wallbreaker, Bewear does not appreciate getting worn down by residual damage, as that limits its wallbreaking potential and makes it easier to check. Bewear is also vulnerable to status-inducing moves such as Will-O-Wisp and Toxic, so common status inducers such as Toxapex, Rotom-W, and defensive Celesteela can cripple it and put it on a timer.
