[SET COMMENTS]
Dwebble has a decent niche as an entry hazard-stacking lead on hyper offense thanks to its ability Sturdy, which essentially guarantees that at least one layer of entry hazards goes up. In addition to this, access to a strong Rock-type STAB attack gives it a good matchup against Natu, one of the most common forms of entry hazard prevention. Knock Off further deepens Dwebble's utility by removing items from Pokemon like Mienfoo and Ferroseed. This set fits best on offensive teams, where teammates can apply pressure on the opponent to prevent the removal of one's own entry hazards. Offensive threats like Carvanha, Abra, and Grookey appreciate entry hazard support, as it helps them to overwhelm their checks. Setup sweepers like Tyrunt and Agility Porygon appreciate entry hazards spreading chip damage on their checks.

move 1: Shell Smash

[SET COMMENTS]
With Shell Smash, Dwebble can become a scary offensive presence fast due to its decent STAB combination and access to Sturdy, giving it easier setup opportunities. However, as a setup sweeper, Dwebble is generally outclassed by Tyrunt, and it struggles against Grookey. Earthquake has great synergy with Rock Blast, providing perfect neutral coverage while also targeting Rock-resistant foes like Pawniard and Onix. Knock Off can remove an item from opposing Ferroseed. Entry hazard setters like Ferroseed and Pawniard are helpful, as they can wear down foes for Dwebble to clean late-game. Memento Diglett can assist Dwebble by letting it more easily set up against a foe of its choice. Pivots like Mienfoo and Natu provide Dwebble safe switch-in opportunities. The latter can also thwart entry hazards, helping maintain Dwebble's Sturdy.

Dwebble has a decent niche as a hazard-stacking lead on hyper offense thanks to its ability Sturdy, which essentially guarantees that at least one layer of hazards goes up. However, its rather mediocre defensive typing gives it a weaknesses to many common Pokemon like Mienfoo, Grookey, and Staryu. It also faces heavy competiton as a hazard setter from Onix, who is faster and has a superior defensive typing. Stealth Rock damage and wears down every Pokemon in the metagame. Spikes is useful against grounded foes. Knock Off further deepens Dwebble’s utility by removing items. Rock Blast is a strong, multi-hit STAB attack that can threaten Pokemon like Natu and Abra. (This part needs to be rewritten. Comparing Dwebble to Onix is really confusing, when they dont even perform the same role. A lot of Dwebble's utility comes from the fact that it is one of the very few viable Pokemon with both Stealth Rock and Spikes and can actually beat Natu and set up entry hazards against it, which is something u have to emphasize. Knock Off makes it so it can apply pressure on Pokemon like Ferroseed and Mienfoo.) This set fits best on offensive teams, where teammates can apply pressure on the opponent to prevent the removal of one’s own hazards. Offensive threats like Mienfoo Carvanha, Abra, and Grookey appreciate hazard support, as it helps them to overwhelm their checks. Setup sweepers like Tyrunt, Carvanha, and Magby appreciate entry hazards breaking Sturdy and spreading chip damage on checks. (Carvanha is not a setup sweeper and Magby is uncommon, replace with something like Agility Porygon. Sturdy is super uncommon in LC and I would rather have u dedicate this line to mentioning special checks.)

Shell Smash raises Dwebble's Attack and Speed by two stages, allowing Dwebble to potentially sweep and letting it outspeed the metagame. Rock Blast is a strong Rock-type STAB move that can deal devastating damage due to the majority of the metagame having small HP stats. It can also break through Focus Sash and Sturdy. (This is just dex info. We should be providing an overview sentence on SS Dwebble as a whole. You want to emphasize how Shell Smash can make Dwebble threatening, but it is usually outclassed by other setup sweepers in the tier like Tyrunt and has a hard time against Grookey.) Earthquake has great synergy with Rock Blast, providing perfect neutral coverage while also targeting Rock-resistant foes like Pawniard and Onix. Knock Off also has good neutral coverage with the added bonus of removing a foe's item.(Dex info; list actual targets for it like Ferroseed) Entry hazard support from Ferroseed and Pawniard are helpful for this set, as they can wear down foes to the point where Dwebble can clean them off with more ease. (Condense this down and add something about Memento Diglett) Pivots like Mienfoo and Natu are helpful, as they provide Dwebble safe switch-in opportunities. The latter can also thwart hazards, helping maintain Dwebble's Sturdy.

With Shell Smash, Dwebble can become a scary offensive presence fast due to its decent STAB combination and access to Sturdy, (AC) giving it easier set-up setup opportunities. However, as a set up setup sweeper, Dwebble is generally outclassed by Tyrunt, and it struggles against Grookey. Earthquake has great synergy with Rock Blast, providing perfect neutral coverage while also targeting Rock-resistant foes like Pawniard and Onix. Knock Off can remove an item from opposing Ferroseed. Entry hazard support from setters like Ferroseed and Pawniard are helpful, as they can wear down foes for Dwebble to clean them off later late-game. Memento Diglett can assist Dwebble by letting it more easily set up more easily against a foe of its choice. Pivots like Mienfoo and Natu provide Dwebble safe switch-in opportunities. The latter can also thwart entry hazards, helping maintain Dwebble's Sturdy.
