Blissey @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 200 HP / 252 Def / 56 SpD
Bold Nature
- Seismic Toss
- Soft-Boiled
- Teleport
- Toxic / Thunder Wave

Despite the fact it is less bulky than its pre-evolution Chansey carrying Eviolite, the ability to run Heavy-Duty Boots gives Blissey a really huge advantage over Chansey in ignoring all entry hazards and makes it an exceptional pivot for fatter teams! Teleport plays a huge role in bolstering Blissey's pivoting capabilities too, allowing it to generate momentum for its teammates quite easily by eating hits for them with its sheer bulk and bringing them in safely. Speaking of its bulk, Blissey is able to easily stonewall scary special attackers like non-Safeguard Volcarona, Hydreigon, and Choice Specs Dragapult. Offensive Pokemon like Zeraora, Dragapult, and Alakazam enjoy Blissey bringing them in freely via Teleport. Physical walls like Toxapex, Clefable, Hippowdon, and Tangrowth can make up for Blissey's lackluster physical bulk. Ditto makes the opponent think twice before setting up in front of Blissey and is also quite popular in the ongoing OLT.

Despite the fact it is less bulky than its pre-evolution Chansey carrying Eviolite, the ability to run Heavy-Duty Boots gives Blissey a really huge advantage over Chansey in ignoring all entry hazards and makes it an exceptional pivot for fatter teams! Teleport plays a huge role in bolstering Blissey's pivoting capabilities too, allowing it to generate momentum for its teammates quite easily due to the big amount of switches it forces by its sheer bulk. This is not really wrong, but I'd say the aspect of Teleport allowing Blissey to soak up hits for its teammates to come in safely is a bit more applicable than bringing in teammates on forced switches in Blissey's case. Speaking of its bulk, Blissey is able to easily stonewall scary special attackers like Volcarona and Choice Specs Dragapult. It's worth adding that it can't beat Safeguard Volcarona however. Hydreigon is another special attacker you could add since that's what Blissey's spread is for (surviving +4 Draco Meteor from LO Hydreigon). Offensive Pokemon like Zeraora, Dragapult, and Alakazam enjoy Blissey bringing them in freely via Teleport. Physical walls like Toxapex, Clefable, and Tangrowth can make up for Blissey's lackluster physical bulk. Nitpicky, but I'd mention Corviknight, Skarmory, and/or Hippowdon before Tangrowth, since they're a bit more relevant as physical walls right now. I think Ditto should be mentioned as a partner as well, as it makes Blissey much riskier to set up on and is also quite popular in OLT right now.
Good stuff, just had some nitpicks.
