Usage Tips
========
  • you desperately want to be attacking first with dracovish in order to maximize its potential
    • tailwind with band is very good if not a necessity, whimsicott fantastic partner for this + ability to swing mirror in your favor with moonblast and pressure gastrodon with a possible energy ball
  • on scarf, make sure you put it in situations where it will be the fastest thing on the field
    • be wary of opposing tailwind, trick room, thunder wave, etc
  • try to avoid situations where redirection mons (toge, indeedee) could use follow me and reduce the power of fishious rend

Team Options
========
  • fits on offense teams that can either provide pivot opportunities or speed control
    • whimsicott, braviary, corviknight
  • appreciates partners that can deal with anything that resists rend
    • deals with grass types: arcanine, braviary
    • deals with dragons: sylveon, whimsicott

  • works well as a breaker

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

**Abilities that grant Water-type immunity**:
  • duh
  • storm drain gastro redirects and boosts
  • water absorb lapras OHKOs with freeze dry

**Faster Pokemon**:
  • lower the power of rend, can take advantage of dracovish's lackluster defenses
  • dragapult, whimsicott, sand rush excadrill
**Grass-types**:
  • resist rend, can threaten decent damage or status
  • rotom c, ferro, ludi
**Dragon-types**:
  • resist rend, tend to be faster than dragapult, only fear a stray dragon rush/ice fang
  • dragapult, kommo-o, hydreigon
**Water-types**:
  • resist rend (notice a trend?), generally bulky, most have other unique options to threaten/limit dracovish
  • rotom w (wisp), gyarados (intimidate), gastrodon (storm drain)

ready for QC, kinda bare but dracovish is one of the most one dimensional mons of all time so not really sure how to expand some of these things
