Choice Band Terrakion is a fearsome wallbreaker thanks to its good Attack stat, useful offensive typing, high-Base Power STAB moves, and ability to bypass Fluffy. Earthquake allows Terrakion to hit non-Earth Eater Gholdengo and have a slightly stronger and more accurate option against foes like Iron Hands and Pecharunt. Terrakion's last moveslot is very flexible, as it likes to use Close Combat or Stone Edge almost all of the time. Stealth Rock can help wear down the opposing team and chip would-be defensive checks into range of a 2HKO, while Quick Attack can pick off faster, weakened foes, and Poison Jab does more damage to Primarina and Scream Tail. Teammates such as Iron Boulder, Zamazenta, and Roaring Moon appreciate Terrakion's ability to break through Corviknight, which is one of their biggest roadblocks, and can clean up weakened teams. Terrakion is vulnerable to being revenge killed due to its middling Speed stat, so a strong defensive backbone featuring Pokemon like Corviknight, Great Tusk, and Manaphy is recommended. Terrakion fits best on balance and bulky offense teams that need a wallbreaker and can help it switch in safely, so slow pivots like the aforementioned Corviknight and Manaphy make for good teammates. Additionally, special pivots like Azelf and Hisuian Electrode can get it in on special walls such as RegenVest Meloetta and Hisuian Goodra, which it can threaten out.

Choice Band Terrakion is a fearsome wallbreaker thanks to its good Attack stat, useful offensive typing, and high BP STAB moves. and ability to bypass Fluffy Earthquake allows Terrakion to hit non-Earth Eater Gholdengo and have a slightly stronger and more accurate option against foes like Iron Hands and Pecharunt. Stealth Rock can help wear down the opposing team and chip would-be defensive checks into range of a 2HKO, while Quick Attack can pick off faster weakened foes. Poison Jab is another option do to more damage into Primarina and Scream Tail, improving the odds of a KO. I would emphasize a little more strongly that the last moveslot is very fungible, and really you should be clicking CC and SE Teammates such as Galarian Zapdos and Iron Boulder, Zamazenta, and Roaring Moon appreciate Terrakion's ability to break through non-Intimidate Corviknight, as Corviknight is much more vulnerable to being worn down by said teammates if Corviknight is Intimidate instead of Fluffy which is one of their biggest roadblocks, you can still 2HKO Intimidate after Rocks and can clean up weakened teams. In return, Galarian Zapdos can beat Intimidate Corviknight, helping Terrakion wallbreak. not a great teammate tbh, they overlap a lot Terrakion is vulnerable to being revenge killed due to its middling Speed stat, so a strong defensive backbone featuring Pokemon like Corviknight, Great Tusk, and Manaphy is recommended. mention that Corv and Mana can slow pivot it in

also add a sentence about special pivots like Azelf and Helectrode getting it in on special walls, and find somewhere in here to mention it fits best on balance and bulky offense teams that need wallbreaking and can give it switch ins
