Urshifu-R is an excellent offensive Pokemon that can threaten metagame staples such as Incineroar, Chien-Pao, and Terapagos thanks to its fantastic typing and STAB moves, enabled by Unseen Fist. Taunt is utilized to shut down supportive Pokemon and Trick Room setters such as Amoonguss and Farigiraf as well as prevent Pokemon like Calm Mind Terapagos and Raging Bolt from setting up. Aqua Jet is a great alternative to get around Raging Bolt's Thunderclap and pick off weakened foes, which is especially useful, as Urshifu-R ignores Protect. Urshifu-R may opt for Swords Dance to become a deadly sweeper, allowing it to OHKO Rillaboom and, after Intimidate, Terapagos-S with Close Combat. Mystic Water boosts Urshifu-R's STAB moves without drawback and allows it to OHKO Incineroar through Sitrus Berry. Safety Goggles lets Urshifu-R ignore Amoonguss's Spore and Rage Powder, which is significant, as Amoonguss resists Urshifu-R's STAB moves; this also provides opportunities for Urshifu-R to set up. The defensive investment allows Urshifu-R to survive Rillaboom's Miracle Seed-boosted Grassy Glide and almost always survive Raging Bolt's Thunderclap. The Speed EVs allow Urshifu-R to outspeed -1 Flutter Mane and Miraidon. Tera Water sheds Urshifu-R's weaknesses to Flutter Mane's Fairy-type STAB moves, Calyrex-S's Psyshock, and Pelipper's Hurricane, as well as greatly boosting its damage output, allowing it to 2HKO Calyrex-I with Surging Strikes and OHKO Chi-Yu with Aqua Jet once Terastallized. Urshifu-R may use Tera Grass to obtain resistances to Rillaboom and Raging Bolt's priority attacks as well as a Spore and Rage Powder immunity. Tera Ghost can be opted for instead to provide Urshifu-R with a Fake Out immunity, allowing it to keep momentum, and a Fighting immunity that lets Urshifu-R take on Zamazenta-C.

Urshifu-R struggles against Rillaboom and Raging Bolt, which take its attacks exceptionally well and threaten it with strong priority STAB moves. Ogerpon-W is also an issue, as it can redirect Surging Strikes and is faster, allowing it to hit Urshifu-R for huge damage with Horn Leech. This makes Tornadus and Amoonguss great partners, as Tornadus can threaten the Grass-types, and Amoonguss can protect Urshifu-R from Raging Bolt with Rage Powder. Tornadus can also provide speed and weather control, making up for Urshifu-R's mediocre Speed tier and handling the otherwise problematic Koraidon, which can significantly weaken Urshifu-R with the sun it sets up. Taunt is another great tool that allows Tornadus to shut down Amoonguss for Urshifu-R. Urshifu-R can take on threats like Chien-Pao and Chi-Yu for the two in return. Alternatively, Rillaboom is an excellent pick, as it can pivot in Urshifu-R and threaten Ogerpon-W. Incineroar can pair with Urshifu-R and either Amoonguss or Rillaboom to create a fantastic pivot core, switching in on threats like Rillaboom. Rillaboom and Incineroar also bring Fake Out, which synergises with Unseen Fist. Urshifu-R is also a great asset to Calyrex-S, as it has the ability to remove Ghost-resistant foes like Incineroar and Terapagos.

Urshifu-R is an excellent offensive Pokemon that can threaten metagame staples such as Incineroar, Chien-Pao, and Terapagos thanks to its fantastic typing and STAB moves, bolstered by Unseen Fist. (It isn't bolstered by Unseen Fist to be specific, just allows it to bypass Protect). Taunt is utilized to shut down supportive Pokemon and Trick Room setters such as Amoonguss and Farigiaraf, as well as prevent Pokemon like Calm Mind Terapagos and Raging Bolt from setting up. Aqua Jet is a great alternative get around Raging Bolt's Thunderclap and pick off weakened foes, which is especially useful as it ignores Protect. Urshifu-R may opt for Swords Dance to become a deadly sweeper, allowing it to OHKO Kyogre and after Intimidate, Terapagos-Stellar with Close Combat. Mystic Water boosts Urshifu-R's Surging Strikes and Aqua Jet without drawback, allowing it to 2HKO Calyrex-Ice and OHKO Chi-Yu once Terastallized, with Surging Strikes and Aqua Jet respectively. The defensive investment allows Urshifu-R to survive Rillaboom's Miracle Seed-boosted Grassy Glide and almost always Raging Bolt's Thunderclap. The Speed EVs allow Urshifu-R to outspeed 4 Speed Tornadus and -1 Timid Miraidodon. Tera Water sheds Urshifu-R's Fairy, Psychic, and Flying weaknesses and greatly boosts its damage output. Urshifu-R may use Tera Grass to obtain resistances to Rillaboom and Raging Bolt's priority attacks, as well as a Spore immunity.

Urshifu-R struggles against Rillaboom and Raging Bolt which take its attacks exceptionally well and threaten it with strong priority STAB moves. Ogerpon-W is also an issue, as it can redirect Surging Strikes and is faster, allowing it to hit Urshifu-R for huge damage with Horn Leech. This makes Tornadus and Amoonguss great partners, as Tornadus can chip at the Grass-types and Amoonguss can protect Urshifu-R from Raging Bolt with Rage Powder. Tornadus can also provide speed and weather control, making up for Urshifu-R's mediocre speed tier and handling the otherwise problematic Koraidon, which can significantly weaken Urshifu-R with the sun it sets up. Spore from Amoonguss makes it easier for Urshifu-R to freely attack or set up. Urshifu-R can take on threats like Chien-Pao and Chi-Yu for the two. Incineroar can pair with Urshifu-R and Amoonguss to create a fantastic pivot core (you can add Fire-Water-Grass Pivot Core), switching in on threats like Rillaboom. Incineroar also brings Fake Out, which synergises with Unseen Fist. Urshifu-R is also a great asset to Calyrex-S as it has the ability to remove Ghost-resistant foes like Incineroar and Terapagos.
(Absolute perfection, I think you can mention Taunt which is provided by Tornadus, also Aqua Jet has been more common on such sets so place it first. Ghost Tera has also seen some play so you can try expanding on it as well. Another point which you can mention is how these Urshifu sets have been more prevalent on Bulky Offense teams, which can utilise Trick Room as well, and facilitate such Urshifus as they don't use Choice Scarf.)

Goggles The defensive investment allows Urshifu-R to survive Rillaboom's Miracle Seed-boosted Grassy Glide and almost always Raging Bolt's Thunderclap. The Speed EVs allow Urshifu-R to outspeed 4 Speed Tornadus and you outspeed up to 36 speed tornadus, I think this is irrelevant. Just say you outspeed -1 pao, miraidon, flutter, korai etc. Not all of them but maybe a couple. -1 Timid max speed is assumed Miraidodon. Tera Water sheds Urshifu-R's Fairy, Psychic, and Flying you probably want example rather than listing types since those are pretty much dex info weaknesses to Flutter Mane, Calyrex-S and Tornadus you're free to use other examples and greatly boosts its damage output. Urshifu-R may use Tera Grass to obtain resistances to Rillaboom and Raging Bolt's priority attacks, as well as a Spore immunity.

Taunt is another great tool which allows Tornadus to shut down Amoonguss for Urshifu-R. Spore from Amoonguss makes it easier for Urshifu-R to freely attack or set up could you not say this about any pokemon that amoonguss pairs with? Feels a bit unnecessary.. Urshifu-R can take on threats like Chien-Pao and Chi-Yu for the two. Incineroar can pair with Urshifu-R and Amoonguss to create a fantastic pivot core, switching in on threats like Rillaboom. Incineroar also brings Fake Out, which synergises with Unseen Fist. Urshifu-R is also a great asset to Calyrex-S as it has the ability to remove Ghost-resistant foes like Incineroar and Terapagos.

Urshifu-R may opt for Swords Dance to become a deadly sweeper, allowing it to OHKO Kyogre choruto brought this point up as irrelevant, idk whether you want to change that or not and after Intimidate, Terapagos-Stellar with Close Combat. Mystic Water boosts Urshifu-R's Surging Strikes and Aqua Jet without drawback, allowing it to 2HKO Calyrex-Ice and OHKO Chi-Yu once Terastallized put different calcs here and use these in the tera water section., with Surging Strikes and Aqua Jet respectively. Safety Goggles allows Urshifu-R to ignore Amoonguss's Spore and Rage Powder, which is significant as Amoonguss resists Urshifu-R's STAB moves. The defensive investment allows Urshifu-R to survive Rillaboom's Miracle Seed-boosted Grassy Glide and almost always it's 6.3% with max investment, saying almost always introduces doubt imo. might be a subjective one from my end however Raging Bolt's Thunderclap. The Speed EVs allow Urshifu-R to outspeed -1 Miraidon. Tera Water sheds Urshifu-R's weaknesses to Flutter Mane's Fairy STAB, Calyrex-S's Psychic, and Tornadus's Bleakwind Storm, as well as greatly boost its damage output allowing it to 2HKO Calyrex-Ice and OHKO Chi-Yu in addition with Mystic Water most mystic water shifu are tera water anyway.

Ogerpon-W is also an issue, as it can redirect Surging Strikes and is faster, allowing it to hit Urshifu-R for huge damage with Horn Leech. This makes Tornadus and Amoonguss come to think of it, maybe you should introduce pelipper a partner. great partners, as Tornadus can threaten the Grass-types and Amoonguss can protect Urshifu-R from Raging Bolt with Rage Powder. Tornadus can also provide speed and weather control, making up for Urshifu-R's mediocre speed tier and handling the otherwise problematic Koraidon, which can significantly weaken Urshifu-R with the sun it sets up perhaps put pelipper here.
