I feel that although this nom does show some great traits that help it maybe succeed i am kinda iffy about this. This is one of the pokemon that sounds cool but has competition. As mentioned it is great for vol c and card may help vs other mons.maybe.hence but then it prob won't be a lead which would be its role. As for choice band just use z found or.Even scarf Land o or.smth. Speaking of hippo it does a great job with access to sleep. I first thought hippo beats it hard with moves like whirl and rocks and yawn but taunt is cool. At the end of the day I feel it's too situational. With (mainly) endeavor to set it apart hippo is better in many match ups and can yawn which in theory is like endeavor hurts things. if you really want to save it you can deal with the POTENTIAL volc or zard y. I wouldn't hate to see the rise but I'm kinda iffy is it really would deserve c.Hello everyone again, this is a nomination that I forgot to do in my previous post so I write it here.

Lycanroc Dusk from UR to C
Lycanroc-Dusk @ Focus Sash
Ability: Tough Claws
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
- Stealth Rock
- Rock Tomb/Drill Run/Fire Fang/Taunt/Sucker Punch
It is a great suicide lead, has Stealth Rocks and Taunt as utility movements, Accelerock as a priority movement by stab that can hit threats like Charizard Y and Volcarona in a super effective way, a great skill like Tough Claws accompanied by good stats from attack and speed, Endevor to be able to weaken threats like Hippowdon before dying and movements for coverage such as Drill Run, Fire Fang, Sucker Punch, etc.
Then we have a set of Lycanroc sweeper but do not play too much in BSS to be able to take it into account in the nomination, the only format where I could prove it with intensity was in OU where it gave me good results in everything at the time
