[OVERVIEW]

Thanks to its enormous Defense and unique ability Mummy, Cofagrigus can easily spread burns and potentially cripple common Fighting-types like Machamp, Bewear, and Toxicroak and Pokemon that rely on their abilities like Tyrantrum, Araquanid, and Slurpuff. Unfortunately, that's where the positive traits end with Cofagrigus. It is easily shut down by Taunt users such as Mandibuzz because of its low Speed, it is heavily worn down by status conditions and strong attacks, it has a low HP stat that does not compliment its defenses, it lacks recovery besides the unreliable Pain Split, and it is overall just extremely passive. Other Pokemon such as Necrozma, Slowbro, and Cresselia are stronger options to deter Fighting-types thanks to their access to reliable recovery, better stats all around, way less passive field presence, and stronger utility options outside of checking Fighting-types.

[SET]
name: Defensive
move 1: Will-O-Wisp
move 2: Shadow Ball
move 3: Pain Split
move 4: Haze / Toxic Spikes
item: Colbur Berry
ability: Mummy
nature: Bold
evs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA

[SET COMMENTS]

This set capitalizes on Cofagrigus's good Defenses, Mummy, its access to Will-O-Wisp, and Colbur Berry to cripple Fighting-types like Machamp that go for Knock Off, and then wearing them down further with Shadow Ball or erasing boosts with Haze. Toxic Spikes can help it beat bulkier Pokemon like Snorlax, but losing Haze hurts Cofagrigus's matchup against Pokemon like Virizion. Leftovers can be used to mitigate its weakness to residual damage.

hello, just wanna clarify that the analysis should be written around this set:
Cofagrigus @ Colbur Berry
Ability: Mummy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
- Shadow Ball
- Will-O-Wisp
- Pain Split
- Hidden Power [Flying]

most of its niche comes from being able to beat fighting types and spreading burns, hp fly is for viriz/panda/champ. please put this back in wip and sorry for the inconvenience!

[OVERVIEW]
Thanks to its enormous Defense and unique ability Mummy, Cofagrigus cam easily spread burns and potentially cripple common Fighting-type that are rely on their abilities such as Machamp, Bewear, and Toxicroak, as well as block Rapid Spin. emphasize beating every single fighting type in ru if hp fly. add stuff mummy helps beat, like slurpuff / araquanid / tyrantrum, its a pretty neat ability coupled with wow. also remove spinblock mentions, its a horrible spinblocker. Unfortunately, that's where the positive traits end with Cofagrigus. It's low Speed means it is easily shut down by Taunt users such as Mandibuzz, it is heavily worn down by status conditions and strong attacks, it has a low HP stat that does not compliment its defenses, Pain Split is not the most reliable recovery move in the game, and Cofagrigus is extremely passive once it's role is done. Although it can spinblock, it loses to Mega Blastoise, the most common spinner in the tier. Other Pokemon such as Necrozma, Slowbro, and Mantine are stronger options to deter Fighting-types thanks to reliable recoveries and better all-around stats. mention their better utility outside of checking fighters and being way less passive

[SET]
name: Defensive
move 1: Will-O-Wisp
move 2: Shadow Ball
move 3: Pain Split
move 4: Hidden Power Flying / Haze
item: Colbur Berry
ability: Mummy
nature: Bold
evs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA

haze lets it beat stuff like gatr / dd zydog / linoone a lot easier but makes it more vulnerable to grass z viriz and it outright loses to pangoro which isnt something youd prefer from a fighter check. include some haze mentions throughout the analysis

[SET COMMENTS]
The best set for Cofagrigus is to capitalize on it's good Defenses, Mummy, and Will-O-Wisp to cripple Fighting-types like Machamp, then it can wear them down further with Shadow Ball or Hidden Power Flying. However, Cofagrigus' slow Speed means it not only shut down by Taunt, but also strong attacks and status conditions. Even though it can spinblock it cannot beat Mega Blastoise thanks to special attacks hitting it harder,. last part isnt too relevant, remove it and include some other mons that outclass it as a fighter check

Thanks, man! Implemented and ready for one more!
 
* haze / tspikes as last move, remove hp flying from mini but mention w tspikes you'll struggle to beat stuff like virizion reliably
* mention leftovers to mitigate weakness to residual damage
* reword part about psychic types so it doesn't seem like gardevoir gets recovery
* "and Cofagrigus is extremely passive once it's role is done. remove bolded, it's useless
implement and i'll check over it again later for 2/2

Thanks to its enormous Defense and unique ability Mummy, Cofagrigus can easily spread burns and potentially cripple common Fighting-types like Machamp, Bewear, and Toxicroak and . It can cripple Pokemon that rely on thier their abilities like Tyrantrum, Araquanid, and Slurpuff with the combination of Mummy and Will-O-Wisp. Unfortunately, that's where the positive traits end with Cofagrigus. Its low Speed means It is easily shut down by Taunt users such as Mandibuzz because of its low Speed, it is heavily worn down by status conditions and strong attacks, it has a low HP stat that does not compliment its defenses,(only once space) it lacks recovery besides the unreliable Pain Split,(AC) and it is overall just is not the most reliable recovery move in the game, and Cofagrigus is extremely passive. Other Pokemon such as Necrozma, Slowbro, and Cresselia are stronger options to deter Fighting-types thanks to their access to reliable recovery, better stats all around, way less passive field presence, and can provide stronger utility options outside of checking Fighting-types.

Thise best set for Cofagrigus is to capitalizes on its Cofagrigus's good Defenses, Mummy,(one space) its access to Will-O-Wisp, and Colbur Berry to cripple Fighting-types like Machamp that go for Knock Off, then it can and then wearing them down further with Shadow Ball or deplete erasing boosts with Haze. Toxic Spikes can help it beat bulkier Pokemon like Snorlax, but cuts into losing Haze hurts Cofagrigus's matchup against Pokemon like Virizion. Leftovers can be used to mitigate its weakness to residual damage.
