Eldegoss is one of NU's best entry hazard removers; its Grass typing grants it favorable matchups against Stealth Rock setters like Sandaconda and Galarian Stunfisk, and Sleep Powder punishes potential switch-ins like Toxicroak, Rotom-S, and Perrserker. Pollen Puff ensures Eldegoss isn't setup bait against Malamar while also giving it a way to deal with Grass-types like Abomasnow, Ferroseed, and opposing Eldegoss, as well as doing some damage to Drampa. Aromatherapy can be used instead on bulkier teams that need status healing to succeed and gives Eldegoss a way to prevent being utterly crippled by Toxic. Leaf Storm can also be used over Giga Drain to reduce Eldegoss's passiveness and nail targets like Cofagrigus and Silvally-Dark harder. 88 Special Attack EVs can be used to guarantee an OHKO on Sandaconda with Leaf Storm, but having more bulk and Giga Drain's recovery is generally preferred.

Drampa counters Eldegoss thanks to Sap Sipper, so checks to it are essential; Fairy-types, Clefairy in particular, are valuable for their Dragon immunity and ability to deal with Drampa. Clefairy is also a great partner thanks to its great special bulk, forming a reliable defensive core with Eldegoss. Steel-types like Togedemaru, Galarian Stunfisk, and Perrserker can also soft check Drampa, as well as deal with Flying-, Ice-, and Bug-types such as Rotom-S, Rotom-F, and Ninjask. These Steel-types are also noteworthy for their Poison immunity, but be wary of moves like Stomping Tantrum from Garbodor and Flamethrower from Silvally-Poison when switching them in. Water-types that can sponge Fire-type attacks from the likes of Rapidash and Silvally-Fire are greatly appreciated; Wishiwashi effectively deals with both aforementioned Fire-types; Quagsire is a good partner on stall, appreciating Eldegoss's Aromatherapy and reciprocating that synergy by dealing with Poison-types; Lanturn provides a Flying-type check. Wishiwashi and Quagsire can also handle Toxicroak with their Ground-type attacks, taking pressure off Eldegoss. Garbodor has good synergy with Eldegoss thanks to its ability to absorb Toxics and deal with Toxicroak, while Eldegoss can handle the Ground-types Garbodor struggles against.

Eldegoss is one of NU's best hazard removers; its Grass typing(no hyphen here) grants it favourable matchup favorable matchups (american english spelling) against Stealth Rock setters like Sandaconda and Galarian Stunfisk, and Sleep Powder punishes potential switch-ins like Toxicroak and Rotom-S. Pollen Puff ensures Eldegoss isn't setup bait against Malamar while also giving it a way to deal with Grass-types like Abomasnow and opposing Eldegoss (Ferroseed is probably worth mentioning here because it otherwise fucks on Eldegoss really hard. It's not great damage, but it's something. Drampa even would be a fine mention here because Pollen Puff at least prevents it from switching in entirely for free.). Sleep Powder is extremely valuable for exploiting Pokemon like Toxicroak, Garbodor, and Perrserker, all of which could otherwise come in against Eldegoss without worry.(You already talk about Sleep Powder earlier. If you want to preserve the mentions you have here, then move them up to that prior mention.) Aromatherapy can be used instead on bulkier teams that need status-healing to succeed; it also gives Eldegoss a way to heal itself and not be utterly crippled by Toxic. Leaf Storm can also be used to reduce Eldegoss's passiveness and nail targets like Cofagrigus and Silvally-Dark harder. (Talk more about Leaf Storm on sets that run enough Special Attack to OHKO 252 HP Sandaconda with Leaf Storm.)

Drampa fully counters Eldegoss thanks to Sap Sipper, so checks to it are essential; Fairy-types, Clefairy in particular, are valuable for their Dragon resistance immunity and ability to deal with Drampa. Clefairy is also a great partner thanks to its great special bulk, forming a reliable defensive core with Eldegoss. Steel-types like Togedemaru, Klinklang, and Perrserker can also soft check(no hyphen here) Drampa, as well as deal with Flying-, Ice-, and Bug-types such as Rotom-S, Rotom-F, and Ninjask. These Steel-types are also noteworthy for their Poison immunity, but be wary of moves like Stomping Tantrum from Garbodor and Flamethrower from Silvally-Poison when switching them in. Water-types that can sponge Fire-type attacks from the likes of Rapidash and Silvally-Fire are greatly appreciated; Wishiwashi effectively deals with both aforementioned Fire-types; Quagsire is a good partner on stall, appreciating Eldegoss's Aromatherapy and reciprocating that synergy by dealing with Poison-types; whereas Lanturn provides a Flying-type resistance. Wishiwashi and Quagsire can also handle Toxicroak with their Ground-type attacks, alleviating pressure off Eldegoss. <a point about Eldegoss's good synergy with Garbodor somewhere in here could be nice, although this section is getting a tad long>

Clefairy is also a great partner thanks to its great special bulk, forming a reliable defensive core with Eldegoss. imo combine this with previous sentence. Steel-types like Togedemaru, Klinklang Stunfisk-Galar, and Perrserker can also soft check Drampa, as well as deal with Flying-, Ice-, and Bug-types such as Rotom-S, Rotom-F, and Ninjask.Imo replace Klinklang with Stunfisk-G. These Steel-types are also noteworthy for their Poison immunity, but be wary of moves like Stomping Tantrum from Garbodor and Flamethrower from Silvally-Poison when switching them in. Water-types that can sponge Fire-type attacks from the likes of Rapidash and Silvally-Fire are greatly appreciated; Wishiwashi effectively deals with both aforementioned Fire-types; Quagsire is a good partner on stall, appreciating Eldegoss's Aromatherapy and reciprocating that synergy by dealing with Poison-types; Lanturn provides a Flying-type resistance.

Aromatherapy can be used instead on bulkier teams that need status healing(RH) to succeed; it also and gives Eldegoss a way to heal itself and not be prevent being utterly crippled by Toxic. (This sentence felt a tad repetitive with you talking about status healing and then saying Eldegoss can heal itself; in my eyes, that's unnecessary.) Leaf Storm can also be used over Giga Drain to reduce Eldegoss's passiveness and nail targets like Cofagrigus and Silvally-Dark harder. 88 Special Attack EVs can be used to guarantee an OHKO on Sandaconda with Leaf Storm, but having more bulk and Giga Drain's recovery is generally preferred.
