Choice Scarf lets Magnezone trade in its wallbreaking capabilities for being able to trap Kartana and offensive Mega Scizor comfortably while still trapping threats like Corviknight, Skarmory, and Ferrothorn. With a Choice Scarf, Magnezone can also revenge kill threats such as Mega Diancie and Tapu Lele, which would otherwise be able to outspeed and KO it. However, due to its low Speed even with Choice Scarf, Magnezone mandates secondary revenge killing which can make teambuilding with it harder. Magnezone also often needs a Steel-type teammate, adding more overlap and stacking weaknesses, as it's too frail to have the defensive properties most Steel-types have. Volt Switch lets it maintain momentum while escaping unfortunate situations, as well as chipping down Steel-types like Heatran and Melmetal, which Magnezone can’t consistently trap and remove. Hidden Power Fire lets it OHKO Kartana and beat Ferrothorn and Mega Scizor. Steel Beam dents common checks such as Garchomp, Gliscor, Mega Latias, and Hydreigon, and it can KO Magnezone to safely bring in a check for more offensive pressure. Alternatively, Flash Cannon is a relatively spammable Steel-type STAB move, which allows it to pressure the likes of Mega Tyranitar and Tapu Lele better, although it means Magnezone is walled by Gliscor and Pokemon like Mega Latias that can easily recover off the damage dealt. The given EV spread allows Magnezone to survive a unboosted Sacred Sword from Kartana.

Choice Scarf Magnezone can fit on a variety of teams from balance to offense teams due to its unique trapping capability. The likes of Tapu Lele, Mega Lopunny, and Kyurem appreciate it removing Steel-types such as Corviknight, Skarmory, and Mega Scizor for them, with the former two also functioning as proper revenge killers, which Magnezone is too slow to do. Pokemon such as Garchomp and Tapu Fini appreciate it removing Kartana. Landorus-T is an amazing partner for Magnezone, luring in and pivoting out of Corviknight and Skarmory to consistently trap them with Magnezone, and the pair form a potent VoltTurn core. Landorus-T can also pivot into and out of Kartana for Magnezone to safely trap it. Other Steel-types such as Corviknight and Mega Scizor also are solid partners, as they provide the defensive Steel-type utility that Magnezone is unable to, such as checking the likes of Rillaboom, Tapu Lele, and Weavile. Ground-immune and resistant Pokemon such as Landorus-T, Tangrowth, and Gliscor are needed alongside Magnezone due to its 4x Ground weakness. Lastly, Knock Off users such as Landorus-T, Weavile, and Clefable can assist Magnezone in trapping Corviknight and Skarmory, luring them in and removing Shed Shell if they run it.

i assume these r gonna be combined w the other sets, lmk if not and what to add here

Checks and Counters
===================

**Ground-types and Ground-type Coverage**: Due to its crippling 4x Ground weakness, Magnezone is easily forced out by the likes of Landorus-T and Garchomp; however, these Pokemon dislike Flash Cannon and Steel Beam, so they can't consistently switch in. Bulkier Ground-types like Gliscor, Gastrodon, and Mega Swampert can consistently switch in and force Magnezone out, as they can recover off the damage dealt or resist all its attacks. Ground-type coverage from the Pokemon that Magnezone usually threatens out such as Kyurem, Mega Scizor, and Mega Diancie can also catch it off guard, dissuading it from switching in.

*Fighting-types and Fighting-type Coverage**: Mega Medicham, Mega Lopunny, and Hawlucha can easily force Magnezone out with their Fighting-type STAB moves, although the former can be KOed if it gets too chipped due to Magnezone outspeeding it. The aforementioned Pokemon are also unable to switch into Magnezone due to their frailness. Fighting-type coverage from the likes of Tapu Lele, Kartana, and Mega Mawile can also deter Magnezone from switching into them.

**Fire-types and Fire-type Coverage**: Fire-type Pokemon like Heatran, Victini, and Volcarona can consistently switch into Magnezone and force it out, using it as setup fodder. Fire-type coverage from Pokemon such as Clefable, Galarian Slowking, and Mega Mawile also means Magnezone is unable to safely switch into them.

Choice Scarf Magnezone differentiates itself from its other sets by trading in its wallbreaking capabilities for being able to trap Kartana comfortably should also add offensive mega scizor too, which other sets are unable to do so due to them being slower. With a Choice Scarf, Magnezone can also revenge kill threats such as Mega Diancie and Tapu Lele which would otherwise be able to outspeed and KO it. However, due to its low speed even when boosted by a Choice Scarf, Magnezone mandates secondary speed control which can restrict teambuilding. "restrict teambuilding" doesn't really make sense because speed control like scarf lele and mega lopunny being paired with zone only brings benefits to that team Magnezone's fairly low bulk also mean it lacks the defensive properties most Steel-types have, so it often stacks weaknesses with them. Thunderbolt is Magnezone's main STAB move, and lets it consistently trap Corviknight and Skarmory, as well as pressure the likes of Toxapex and Tapu Fini out. we know what tbolt does Volt Switch lets it mantain momentum while pivoting out of unfortunate situations, letting Magnezone bring in its teammates. Hidden Power Fire lets it OHKO Kartana as well as let it beat Ferrothorn and Mega Scizor. Steel Beam allows Magnezone to dent switch-ins such as Gliscor and Hydreigon, while also killing Magnezone to maintain momentum. i wouldn't just say switch ins but really denting that would stay in on it like chomp or mega latias and safely bring in a check for more offensive pressure. The given EV spread allows Magnezone to live a unboosted Kartana Sacred Sword. i would mention flash cannon here

Choice Scarf Magnezone can fit on a variety of teams, from balances to offenses due to its unique trapping capability. Landorus-T is an amazing partner for Magnezone, due to it luring and pivoting out of the Corviknight and Skarmory to consistently trap them woth with Magnezone, while also forming a potent VoltTurn core. Landorus-T can also allow Magnezone a safe trap of Kartana, due to being able to pivot into it. The likes of Tapu Lele, Mega Lopunny, and Kyurem appreciate it removing Steel-types such as Corviknight, Skarmory, and Mega Scizor for them, with the former two also being able to function as proper speed control for teams due to Magnezone's low Speed stat even when using a Choice Scarf. Other Steel-types such as Corviknight and Mega Scizor also are solid partners as they help provide the defensive utility of a Steel-type which Magnezone is unable to do. how so? mention prevelant Pokemon they can check that Magnezone should but can't Ground-type immunities and resistance such as Landorus-T, Tangrowth, and Gliscor are needed alongside Magnezone due to its 4x Ground-type weakness. mention knock off users who can bait skarmory or corviknight to switch in and knock off their potential shed shell, such as clef or lando for example

Flash Cannon is another option that gives Magnezone a relatively spammable Steel-type STAB move, which allows it to pressure the likes of Mega Tyranitar and Tapu Lele better. move this above the EV spread and mention its downsides

Lastly, Knock Off users such as Landorus-T, Weavile, and Clefable can assist Magnezone in trapping Corviknight and Skarmory as they can lure them in and Knock Off potential Shed Shells.
