An impressive attack stat amplified by an excellent ability in Adaptability and a great offensive typing with access to powerful STAB moves make Crawdaunt a very decent wallbreaker. Swords Dance allows Crawdaunt to capitalize on its ability to force out slower Pokemon like Hippowdon and specially defensive Clefable and enables it to OHKO bulky Pokemon like Toxapex and Ferrothorn, as well as Zeraora with Aqua Jet. Aqua Jet also allows Crawdaunt to revenge kill other threats like Excadrill, Rotom-Heat, Terrakion, and Mamoswine, given some prior chip damage.

Clefable is an excellent partner to Crawdaunt as it is able to deal with Kommo-o and Hydreigon, which Crawdaunt struggles to take down, as well as Dragapult, which it is threatened by. Additionally, Crawdaunt appreciates Clefable's Wish support and its ability to bring it in with Teleport, as it can take care of foes that like to come in on Clefable, such as Excadrill and Corviknight. Suitable offensive partners include Dragapult and Togekiss as they are able to threaten the likes of Kommo-o and Conkeldurr, which Crawdaunt can struggle with. Finally, Seismitoad and Choice Scarf Hydreigon also make for good partners, as they can check or revenge kill Zeroara, Rotom-Heat, and Rotom-Wash, which can force out Crawdaunt, though the former has to watch out for Zeraora's Grass Knot.

Aqua Jet also allows Crawdaunt to revenge kill other threats like Excadrill, Rotom-Heat, Terrakion, and Mamoswine, given some minor chip damage.

Clefable is an excellent partner to Crawdaunt as it is able to deal with Kommo-o and Hydreigon, which Crawdaunt struggles to take down, as well as Dragapult, which it is threatened by. Additionally, Crawdaunt appreciates Clefable's Wish support and its ability to bring it in with Teleport, as it can take care of foes that like to come in on Clefable, such as Excadrill and Rotom-Heat. I think Corviknight is a more suitable example than Rotom-H here, as you cannot OHKO Rotom-H from full with Aqua Jet, while you can use Corviknight to set up. Suitable offensive partners include Dragapult and Togekiss as they are able to threaten the likes of Kommo-o and Conkeldurr, which Crawdaunt can struggle with. Crawdaunt also appreciates entry hazard support from teammates like Ferrothorn, Seismitoad, and Hippowdon as they soften up the opposing Pokemon and put them in range of Crawdaunt's attacks. Do entry hazards help with any specific damage calcs? If they do, mention some of those, but if they don't, this is filler and there's no need to mention it. The latter two can also come in on Zeraora, which Crawdaunt is threatened by, but they have to watch out for Grass Knot.

If Dracovish does not get banned fsr, then you could probably add a sentence about how Adaptability Knock and Aqua Jet help differentiate it a bit in the first paragraph. However, it is very likely to get banned.

inally, Seismitoad and Gastrodon also make for good partners as they can come in on Zeroara, Rotom-Heat, and Rotom-Wash, which can force out Crawdaunt, though they have to watch out for Zeraora's Grass Knot.
I actually am not fully sold on this personally. I would personally not mention Gastrodon as it tends to fit on specific balances that seldom make use of frailer breakers like Crawdaunt. The dual Water synergy is already a tad clunky; it is likely permissable with Seismitoad as Seismitoad covers so much on BO right now, but I cannot confidently extend this to Gastrodon. Perhaps you could give an offensive example like Scarf Hydreigon, which RKs those Pokemon and soft checks the Rotom forms.

Looks great overall, 2/2 with this.
