[SET COMMENTS]
Moves
========

- knock off being strongest stab and removes items, crippling threats
- pursuit helps with trapping psychics
- poison jab, secondary stab, useful against fairies
- toxic spikes help rack up residual against opposition teams
- aqua tail can help hit weakened rhyperior / diancie down


Set Details
========
- choice scarf boosts its speed above virizion helping it efficiently check it with poison jab
- scarf also allows it to be more effective against offensive psychics such as sigilyph and meloetta
- evs are essentially max speed max atk to maximise the usage of scarf
- adamant is used because it already outspeeds base 80 scarfers such as medicham and fast mons such as accelgor

Usage Tips
========
- use it as the main offensive psychic check on offensive teams
- traps delphox and sigilyph better, struggles to do so on other sets
- covers the base of a virizion check for a faster team
