Excadrill @ Air Balloon
Ability: Sand Rush
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Tera Type: Ghost / Rock
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide
- Rapid Spin

Excadrill finds its place in UU as a fearsome sweeper on sand teams thanks to its high Attack and Sand Rush, which allows it to outspeed the entire unboosted metagame. Swords Dance lets Excadrill OHKO Kommo-o and potentially Slowking with Earthquake at +2, and Air Balloon facilitates setting it up against Pokemon like Tyranitar and Sandy Shocks, whose best way of damaging Excadrill is often a Ground-type move. Rock Slide hits the tier's numerous Ground-immune Pokemon, like Zapdos, Tornadus-T, and Latios. Rapid Spin lets Excadrill remove entry hazards and boost its Speed even outside of sand. Tera Ghost removes Excadrill's Ground weakness while blocking Extreme Speed from Hisuian Arcanine; Tera Rock can power up Rock Slide, letting Excadrill 2HKO Zapdos and potentially OHKO Tornadus-T, as well as 2HKO Hydrapple at +2. As sand is needed to enable Sand Rush, Tyranitar is a mandatory partner. Water- and Grass-types like Azumarill, Greninja, and Sinistcha threaten Excadrill, so it benefits from teammates like Hydrapple and Zapdos that can check them. Latios, particularly with Tera Steel, can be annoying for Excadrill to deal with, so it benefits from teammates like Lokix and Assault Vest Tornadus-T that can handle Latios.

Rock Slide allows Excadrill to hit the tier's numerous Ground-immune Pokemon, like Zapdos, Tornadus-T, and Latios. Rapid Spin gives Excadrill utility as an entry hazard remover while allowing it to boost its Speed even outside of sand. Tera Ghost removes Excadrill's 4x 2x Ground-type weakness while blocking Extreme Speed from Hisuian Arcanine, while Tera Rock can be used instead to power up Rock Slide, letting Excadrill 2HKO Zapdos and potentially OHKO Tornadus-T. I'd mention 2HKOing Hydrapple at +2 as well since thats Exca's biggest check right now As sand is needed to enable Sand Rush, Tyranitar is a mandatory partner for Excadrill. Excadrill is threatened by Water- and Grass-types like Azumarill, Greninja, and Sinistcha, the cha isnt that meta relevant but because its a hard counter to drill i'll let it stay, but in the future for another mon say something like oger or apple instead :> so it benefits from teammates like Hydrapple and Zapdos that can check them. Latios, particularly Tera Steel Latios, can be annoying for Excadrill to deal with, so it benefits from teammates like Lokix and Assault Vest Tornadus-T that can handle Latios.
