Riding onto the stage is Calyrex-S, the top dog (or rather, horse) in the Ubers metagame! Choice Scarf Calyrex-S is a phenomenal set, taking advantage of its high Speed tier to check offensive teams that rely on entry hazards to win, as well as threatening sweepers like Dragon Dance Zekrom. Its dual STABs hit a majority of the tier for netural coverage, with Psyshock hitting Blissey harder than anything else. Trick cripples a predicted switch-in such as Defensive Yveltal or Tyranitar. Aromatherapy provides cleric support and is often used when Calyrex-S forces a switch, while Nasty Plot is primarily used after Calyrex-S has Tricked away its Scarf and makes Calyrex-S more immediately threatening. As Calyrex-S dislikes the presence of opposing Dark-types like Yveltal or Zarude, Pokemon that can wear them down such as Eternatus are appreciated. In return, Calyrex-S can threaten specially defensive Necrozma-DM and opposing Eternatus. Defoggers such as Yveltal and Ho-Oh ensure that Sticky Web remains off the field so Calyrex-S can revenge kill threats such as Dragon Dance Zygarde and Pheromosa.

If you can fit it on the point about NP, mention how setting up on a tricked Yveltal clicking Roost is one of the main applications of it, breaking teams super easily.

Pheromosa isn't super relevant at all and on webs neither is Zygarde, Rock Polish Groudon and Geomancy Xerneas are better examples for the final sentence.

If you can fit mentions of rock coverage baits for ho-oh like ndm, marsh, or etern, it would be nice as partners too because scarf caly compared to specs doesn't have the power to break it without tricking and getting rocks up

lmk if you have trouble with the character limit w these changes but it should be fine to just not include some smaller things from these changes like heavy examples or explaining the yvel interaction with trick np if you can't squeeze it in

QC 1/1
