LC Bonsly



[OVERVIEW]
Bonsly is overwhelmingly outclassed in its role as a Stealth Rock user. It is utterly outclassed by Geodude, which boasts a better typing, better Speed, and the ability to viably run an Adamant nature, and Onix mostly outclasses Geodude thanks to its higher Speed and much higher versatility. Below these two Pokemon, Bonsly offers no redeeming qualities to differentiate itself from them, as the lessened weakness to Water- and Grass-type moves does not help it in any matchup, making it a completely unviable choice on any Little Cup team.

[SET]
name: SturdyJuice
move 1: Stealth Rock
move 2: Rock Slide
move 3: Stomping Tantrum
move 4: Sucker Punch / Counter
item: Berry Juice
ability: Sturdy
nature: Jolly
evs: 36 HP / 196 Atk / 76 Def / 196 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]
Bonsly is guaranteed to set up Stealth Rock if Sturdy is intact while being able to dish out attacks afterward thanks to Berry Juice. However, Geodude is able to pull off a nearly identical set much better, while Onix can use a similar set more effectively thanks to its higher Speed.

[OVERVIEW]
Mention in the last sentence that Bonsly's lessened weakness to Water- and Grass-type attacks does not help make it a good option over Geodude and Onix, because that is technically something it has over the other two (along with an ice neutrality).

[SET]
Move Counter to before Explosion and remove the Explosion slash or have it just be Sucker Punch. Explosion never really helped, but Counter was useful(?) once or twice.

Rephrase that Geodude uses a "nearly identical" set much better - Geodude isn't running Stomping Tantrum.
