is a Pre-Contributor

Duosion is a threatening set-up sweeper thanks to an amazing ability in Magic Guard, an extremely high Special Attack, and a respectable movepool. Magic Guard makes Duosion immune to entry hazards and status, which, combined with its Eviolite-boosted bulk and access to Recover, make it hard to wear down. It also boasts access to Thunder, meaning that it is not effectively walled by Mandibuzz. These attributes make it a staple on balance teams that appreciate its ability to act as a late-game win condition. However, its Speed is very low, meaning it will often be taking a hit before being able to hit the opponent, effectively hindering its longevity. It also faces competition with Musharna as a Psychic type, as Musharna is less vulnerable to loosing its item and boasts better overall bulk.
