[OVERVIEW]
Although Conkeldurr boasts respectable physical bulk and power, it suffers from a terrible Speed stat and typing, leaving it susceptible to the Psychic-, Fairy-, and Flying-types that plague the tier. Offensively, Conkeldurr is completely outclassed by other hard-hitters such as Mega Medicham, which is significantly more powerful and holds a much better Speed tier, and Mega Mawile, which possesses better coverage and defensive utility. These poor qualities leave Conkeldurr severely outclassed and without any reason to be used in OU.

Conkeldurr's main niche lies in its Guts-boosted attacks in conjuction with Flame Orb, which allow it to cripple opposing teams with Knock Off and 2HKO defensive Pokemon like Toxapex, Clefable, and Tangrowth with Facade at the cost of taking passive damage every turn. However, Mega Medicham and Mega Mawile hit much harder thanks to Huge Power and higher-Base Power moves, making them significantly harder to wall. Mega Medicham also possesses a higher base Speed to make up for its lackluster defensive typing, while Mega Mawile possesses a good defensive typing to make up for its low Speed.

change to this:

Conkeldurr @ Flame Orb
Ability: Guts
EVs: 104 HP / 252 Atk / 152 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Drain Punch
- Mach Punch
- Knock Off
- Facade

punch rly isn't needed since defensive lando is hardly a thing and it still takes like 40 from facade, gliscor gets easily 2hkod and it allows u to break toxapex. spread means u outspeed and creep clefable since u break through that too now.

ninja edit: all of those take 60-70

make changes to reflect facade allowing it to break through a lot more stuff however it still being outclassed entirely by the better options due to the passive damage alongside the other reasons mentioned(bad speed tier, awful typing etc)

1/1
