5. Secondary effects like burn from Fire Blast will not count as a win condition
ok but Fire Blast has a 10% chance of burning, so it's considered hax. Seed Flare has an 80% (I said 60 but it's even higher) chance of dropping SpDef.
It's like assuming Power-Up Punch doesn't increase your attack just because it's a secondary effect.

Technically this would be a call-out to pqs to fix the rules but your common sense should already tell you that ignoring this means your "counter" is not a reliable counter
 
umm so I have my senior paper over due and I'm doing this

Yanmega @ Expert Belt
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 2 Atk / 30 Def

vs nite dragon you survive and outspeed while two shot with hp ice
252+ Atk Dragonite Outrage vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Yanmega: 250-295 (79.8 - 94.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ SpA Expert Belt Yanmega Hidden Power Ice vs. 72 HP / 0 SpD Multiscale Dragonite: 187-221 (54.8 - 64.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

vs shaymin you one/two shot it with bug buzz as leech can't sustain after protect
252+ SpA Expert Belt Yanmega Bug Buzz vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Shaymin: 360-425 (89.1 - 105.1%) -- 31.3% chance to OHKO after Leftovers recovery

vs rhyperior you sub it rock wreckers then bug buzz rinse and repeat till dead
252+ SpA Yanmega Bug Buzz vs. 252 HP / 36 SpD Rhyperior: 228-268 (52.5 - 61.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Scyther @ Mystic Water
Ability: Technician
EVs: 200 Atk / 92 Def / 216 Spe
Naive Nature
- Substitute
- Hidden Power [Water]
- Bug Bite
- Counter
Shaymin
200 Atk Technician Scyther Bug Bite vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Shaymin: 254-300 (62.8 - 74.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
4 SpA Shaymin Seed Flare vs. 0 HP / 0- SpD Scyther: 43-51 (15.3 - 18.1%) -- possible 6HKO


Sub T1, Spam Bug Bite,
Seed Flare can't break the sub, and you can't get the SpDef drop behind a sub (stableprince569)

Rhyperior
0 SpA Mystic Water Scyther Hidden Power Water vs. 252 HP / 36 SpD Rhyperior: 228-272 (52.5 - 62.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
200 Atk Technician Scyther Bug Bite vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Rhyperior: 102-120 (23.5 - 27.6%) -- 73.9% chance to 4HKO


Sub T1, then Bug Bite to get rid of the Custap
Then, only HP Water if behind a sub or if Rhyp is recharging
Sub in any other situation

Dragonite
252+ Atk Dragonite Outrage vs. 0 HP / 92 Def Scyther: 237-280 (84.3 - 99.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ Atk Dragonite Fire Punch vs. 0 HP / 92 Def Scyther: 198-234 (70.4 - 83.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ Atk Dragonite Superpower vs. 0 HP / 92 Def Scyther: 39-46 (13.8 - 16.3%) -- possible 7HKO

If Counter deals double the HP Scyther loses, then:

D = % Dnite Loses | S = % Scyther Loses
D = 2(S * Scyther's HP)/(Dnite's HP)
D = 2(S*281)/(341)
D = 1.648S
Scyther will deal back about 164.8% of what it loses​

Counter after Outrage --> (84.3 * 1.648) to (99.6 * 1.648) --> 138.93% to 164.15%
Counter after Fire Punch --> (70.4 * 1.648) to (83.2 * 1.648) --> 116.03% to 137.12%
For Superpower, it doesn't do much initially, and Dnite's attack will lower over time, so spam counter for that, too. Eventually Dnite will be forced to Struggle

you don't need to invest for rhyperior. Any flying type with sub breaks it, as long as it can hit hard enough. not even sure u need protect unless you choke with sub

Magic Guard prevents leech seed from working, icy wind lets you avoid any shenanigans with Shaymin gaining hp w/ protect and dodging a 2hko with air slash.

you don't rlly need the spdef but w/ever

hello

due to the slow movement of bmt overall, and barely anybody posting anymore after the first week, i'd you all to vote upon if bmt should have one or two weeks during a cycle. scroll up for poll. if you have a different idea for how it could go, say it here. i will end this poll manually at roughly the same time that this bmt cycle is over, though the date for when it automatically ends is off.
 
Making this set actually helped me learn how hidden power IV's are calculated, which is pretty cool.

POTUS (Abomasnow) @ Rocky Helmet
Ability: Snow Warning
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def
Impish Nature
IVs: 30 Atk / 0 SpA
- Hidden Power [Grass]
- Avalanche
- Substitute


Rhyperior: Sub, hp grass, sub, hp grass. I don't know whether the sim has implemented this or not (I'm guessing it has) but HP Grass should be 59 BP here. If it is incorrectly at 70 then there is a slim chance that hp grass + hail can knock rhyperior into custap range but that is not with correct mechanics so I think it's fair to ignore that. Calcs:
0- SpA Abomasnow Hidden Power Grass vs. 252 HP / 36 SpD Solid Rock Rhyperior: 210-252 (48.3 - 58%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after hail damage
220+ Atk Rhyperior Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Abomasnow: 80-95 (20.8 - 24.7%) -- guaranteed 5HKO (max roll is 95, I have 96hp subs)

Shaymin: Just spam avalanche and there's nothing it can do. Hail is up forever so it's never gaining HP and can't stall you out of avalanches and if it wants to go for seed flare shenanigans then it gets 2hkoed.
0 Atk Abomasnow Avalanche vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Shaymin: 120-144 (29.7 - 35.6%) -- 25.8% chance to 3HKO after hail damage and Leftovers recovery (60 BP)
0 Atk Abomasnow Avalanche vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Shaymin: 240-284 (59.4 - 70.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after hail damage and Leftovers recovery (120 BP)
4 SpA Shaymin Seed Flare vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Abomasnow: 74-87 (19.2 - 22.6%) -- possible 5HKO

Dragonite: Click avalanche and win. Dragonite has to make contact if it wants to 2hko (obama lives fire punch) and helmet will take it out of multiscale. earthquake, predictably, does pitiful damage.
252+ Atk Dragonite Fire Punch vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Abomasnow: 320-380 (83.3 - 98.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ Atk Dragonite Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Abomasnow: 53-63 (13.8 - 16.4%) -- possible 7HKO
0 Atk Abomasnow Avalanche vs. 72 HP / 0 Def Dragonite: 508-600 (148.9 - 175.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO (against dragonite w/ no multiscale)

Here's another ice type to beat the team that is mono-weak to ice. I think this one's a little less fun but at least it beats rhyperior without sub which is lame.

Cloyster @ Rindo Berry
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk / 56 SpA / 100 SpD
Brave Nature
- Icicle Spear
- Surf
- Ice Shard

Rhyperior: 56 SpA guarantees an ohko on Rhyperior with surf. If they endure, ice shard takes them out.
56 SpA Cloyster Surf vs. 252 HP / 36 SpD Solid Rock Rhyperior: 435-516 (100.2 - 118.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO
and even with a brave nature Cloyster outspeeds Rhyperior, with 158 compared to its 116 speed.

Shaymin: Cloyster's SpDef is so atrocious that even through rindo berry seed flare was still a guaranteed ohko and it needed to have significant spdef investment. Icicle spear isn't guaranteed to kill here so it needs to have ice shard to win this matchup.
4 SpA Shaymin Seed Flare vs. 0 HP / 100 SpD Rindo Berry Cloyster: 204-240 (84.6 - 99.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ Atk Cloyster Icicle Spear (5 hits) vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Shaymin: 370-450 (91.5 - 111.3%) -- approx. 37.5% chance to OHKO after Leftovers recovery
252+ Atk Cloyster Ice Shard vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Shaymin: 116-140 (28.7 - 34.6%) -- 99.5% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery

Dragonite:
0- SpA Dragonite Thunder vs. 0 HP / 100 SpD Cloyster: 242-286 (100.4 - 118.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO
But in all seriousness click icicle spear one time. It massacres Dragonite and Cloyster's fantastic physical bulk means it can't be ohkod by this set.
Cantius already did Rindo Cloyster
 
Ok I am back and stronger than ever and this time I checked the thread

Aerodactyl @ Leftovers
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 16 Def / 140 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 2 Atk / 30 Def
- Substitute
- Protect
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Taunt

Rhyperior: Can hit you 4 times. Sub/Protect until they're out and spam hp ice.
220+ Atk Rhyperior Rock Wrecker vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Aerodactyl: 792-932 (263.1 - 309.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO (unimportant)
0 SpA Aerodactyl Hidden Power Ice vs. 252 HP / 36 SpD Solid Rock Rhyperior: 76-91 (17.5 - 20.9%) -- possible 5HKO (also doesn't really matter)

Shaymin: Can hit you 4 times. Sub/protect/taunt until they're out and spam hp ice.

Dragonite: the 16 defense evs ensure that fire punch cannot break aero's sub, so fire punch is a guaranteed loss (it was anyway but I was worried about struggle damage after stalling for 12 turns). Outrage and superpower fail to their lack of pp and hp ice does around 40% so there's no possible way to pull some hitting self in confusion on protect turns to save pp shenanigans with outrage.

In conclusion: why is dragonite specifically set to underspeed tyranitar? what's that benchmark for? Scarf swampert?

Here's Arcanine:


Arcanine
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 72 Def / 224 SpA / 188 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 2 Atk / 30 Def
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Flamethrower

Bronzong: Flamethrower twice. You're guaranteed to live the eq and flamethrower 2hkos.
224 SpA Arcanine Flamethrower vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Bronzong: 212-252 (62.7 - 74.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
-1 252+ Atk Choice Band Bronzong Earthquake vs. 0 HP / 68 Def Arcanine: 204-242 (63.5 - 75.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Dragonite: HP ice twice. You're guaranteed to live eq (even after a dd) and you 2hko. Unfortunately arcanine doesn't get outrage this gen so it needs spatk investment for hp ice to 2hko. No swag for me I suppose.
224 SpA Arcanine Hidden Power Ice vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Yache Berry Dragonite: 108-128 (33.4 - 39.6%) -- guaranteed 3HKO (min roll 108 and then 216 for a total of 324 damage, dragonite has 323 hp)
-1 252+ Atk Dragonite Earthquake vs. 0 HP / 68 Def Arcanine: 180-214 (56 - 66.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ Atk Dragonite Earthquake vs. 0 HP / 68 Def Arcanine: 272-320 (84.7 - 99.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Shaymin: Flamethrower twice. You live any attack, outspeed, and easily 2hko even after leech recovery.
224 SpA Arcanine Flamethrower vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Shaymin: 240-284 (70.1 - 83%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ SpA Life Orb Shaymin Seed Flare vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Arcanine: 140-165 (43.6 - 51.4%) -- 8.2% chance to 2HKO (I'm actually just one ev shy of being able to guarantee surviving a crit here, I think, although Bronzong and dnite will always have the crit chance too so whatever.)

EDIT: I calced this in gen 8 by accident but all that should mean is that it needs even less spatk to beat dragonite because hp ice will be stronger.

Skarmory @ Choice Band
Ability: Keen Eye
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk
Adamant Nature
- Brave Bird

why use more than one move?
Bronzong: Factoring brave bird recoil damage taken is roughly similar (like exactly the same) on both sides, but skarm outspeeds and wins.
252+ Atk Choice Band Skarmory Brave Bird vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Bronzong: 93-110 (27.5 - 32.5%) -- guaranteed 4HKO (9.1 - 10.8% recoil damage)
252+ Atk Choice Band Bronzong Zen Headbutt vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Skarmory: 62-73 (18.5 - 21.8%) -- possible 5HKO
Skarm kills on turn 4 and can't take more than 329 damage in the first three turns. It has 334 hp so it wins guaranteed if there aren't any crits.

Dragonite: 2hko and don't get 2hkod back. Superpower max roll + Brave Bird max roll recoil + -1 Superpower could be a kill (I don't really care to do all that addition) but it doesn't matter because if they superpower t1 then brave bird ohkos

Shaymin: Brave Bird ohkos so it can't leech stall. The only thing it can do is sub to chip skarm into hp ice crit range.
252+ Atk Choice Band Skarmory Brave Bird vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Shaymin: 426-504 (124.5 - 147.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

252+ Atk Choice Band Skarmory Brave Bird vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Bronzong: 93-110 (27.5 - 32.5%) -- guaranteed 4HKO (9.1 - 10.8% recoil damage)
252+ Atk Choice Band Bronzong Zen Headbutt vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Skarmory: 62-73 (18.5 - 21.8%) -- possible 5HKO
Skarm kills on turn 4 and can't take more than 329 damage in the first three turns. It has 334 hp so it wins guaranteed if there aren't any crits.

Dragonite: 2hko and don't get 2hkod back. Superpower max roll + Brave Bird max roll recoil + -1 Superpower could be a kill (I don't really care to do all that addition) but it doesn't matter because if they superpower t1 then brave bird ohkos

Shaymin: Brave Bird ohkos so it can't leech stall. The only thing it can do is sub to chip skarm into hp ice crit range.
252+ Atk Choice Band Skarmory Brave Bird vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Shaymin: 426-504 (124.5 - 147.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ SpA Life Orb Shaymin Hidden Power Ice vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Skarmory: 122-144 (36.5 - 43.1%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
Ties exist in DPP
+1 252+ Atk Dragonite Superpower vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Skarmory: 164-194 (49.1 - 58%) -- 97.7% chance to 2HKO
252+ Atk Choice Band Skarmory Brave Bird vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Dragonite: 244-288 (75.5 - 89.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Similar issue in Bronzong matchup but more calcs and I'm too lazy when the dnite tie already exists.
 

Camerupt @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Solid Rock
EVs: 80 HP / 176 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Eruption
- HP Ice

• Bronzong -> cb is little expected in zong. His best move vs Camerupt is EQ but I am faster with or without Scarf.

176 SpA Camerupt Eruption (150 BP) vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Bronzong: 348-410 (102.9 - 121.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

• Nite-> I made a specific cast to better fit Dragonite. As the previous case, your best answer is EQ
252+ Atk Dragonite Earthquake vs. 80 HP / 0 Def Solid Rock Camerupt: 246-291 (81.7 - 96.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

while I'm faster with HP Ice
Yache Berry
176 SpA Camerupt Hidden Power Ice vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Yache Berry Dragonite: 124-146 (38.3 - 45.2%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

Rip Yache
176 SpA Camerupt Hidden Power Ice vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Dragonite: 248-292 (76.7 - 90.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

• Shaymin -> click Eruption
176 SpA Camerupt Eruption (150 BP) vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Shaymin: 396-468 (115.7 - 136.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO
Unfortunately your Camerupt doesn't beat Dragonite.
Dragonite can just outrage T1 which kills the majority of the time, and even if it didn't you also have to consider the fact that Dnite can use ddance turn 1 to outspeed and ohko T2.
252+ Atk Dragonite Outrage vs. 80 HP / 0 Def Camerupt: 295-348 (98 - 115.6%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO
