but how are you doing to defeat the legendary defensive Lunge Fightinium Pheromosa?Do not use Twinkle Tackle Donphan.
Donphan @ Fairium Z
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Play Rough
- Ice Shard
- Bulldoze / Counter / Head Smash / Rock Tomb / other filler move
Why it's bad: While at first glance Fairium Z might seem like a good option to lure and defeat Dragon- and Dark-types like Mega Gyarados and Kommo-o, it sacrifices important matchups as opposed to better lure sets. In particular, the matchup against Mega Gyarados is inconsistent due to the choice whether to Mega Evolve or not impacting whether Twinkle Tackle is effective or not. Additionally, matchups against Pokemon that are weak to Fairy like Haxorus are easily won by Donphan's standard sets (Choice Band and Groundium Z), so there's no need to use Fairium Z to counter them.
Instead use: Endeavor Donphan (set borrowed from MaceMaster)
Donphan @ Groundium Z
EVs: 252 Atk / 168 Def / 88 Spe
IVs: 0 HP
- Ice Shard
This set deviates from the standard Groundium Z set less and thus has better matchups aligned more precisely with said set. Against Kommo-o, expect a Clangorous Soulblaze and use Endeavor turn one; follow with Ice Shard turn two to defeat Kommo-o. Against Mega Gyarados, use Endeavor turn one expecting Mega Evolution and Waterfall; after you are barely finished by the Waterfall, use Ice Shard in turn to finish off Mega Gyarados. Play similarly against Pokemon that this set has a chance to lure like Primarina. Remember that if your opponent is wary of your plans, he can play around your strategies by alternative moves such as using Dragon Dance on Mega Gyarados turn one and using Aqua Jet on Primarina similarly. Meanwhile, maximum Attack investment allows Donphan to hit as hard as possible in other matchups, while 168 Def EVs guarantees that it survives a Waterfall from Mega Gyarados:
The remaining EVs are placed in Speed for Donphan to outspeed miscellaneous threats like the aforementioned Primarina. 0 HP IVs reduce the amount of HP Magearna gains from Pain Split.252+ Atk Mold Breaker Gyarados-Mega Waterfall vs. 0 HP / 168 Def Donphan: 242-288 (83.4 - 99.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
If you are really intent on defeating Kommo-O, you can use a Choice Band set with Play Rough.
