Frosmoth is a potent setup Pokemon thanks to its ability Ice Scales, allowing it to set up against strong special attackers like Alolan Raichu, Vikavolt, and Vanilluxe. Hurricane lets Frosmoth break past threatening Pokemon that resist its STAB moves, like Salazzle, which has a high chance of being OHKOed after one Quiver Dance. Hurricane can also be beneficial against nuisances such as Scrafty and can pick off Pokemon like Charizard and Escavalier when they're weakened. Giga Drain can be used over Bug Buzz to deal with bulky Water-types like Jellicent and Gastrodon, which could otherwise poison Frosmoth with Toxic and put it on a timer. Giga Drain can also be useful for regaining health, increasing Frosmoth's longevity and ability to tank hits from powerful attackers. Heavy-Duty Boots is essential to this set, as Frosmoth's 4x weakness to Rock is extremely problematic and would otherwise hinder its chances to sweep. Additionally, Heavy-Duty Boots allows Frosmoth to pivot in and out against weaker special attackers such as Vileplume and Rotom.

Few Pokemon can handle Frosmoth after a Quiver Dance, but bulky Steel- and Rock-types like Copperajah, Escavalier, and Coalossal can switch into it without much worry and threaten it out. Therefore, it's pivotal to include a few switch-ins to these Pokemon; Heavy-Duty Boots Charizard is a great partner thanks to its bulk, STAB Flamethrower, and ability to badly poison Pokemon like Jellicent with Toxic, which could prevent Frosmoth from setting up and sweeping with Taunt. Ground-types such as Rhydon, Steelix, and Mudsdale are good teammates, as they can force out Steel- and Rock-types, as well as set up Stealth Rock, further assisting Frosmoth in its goal to sweep teams. Rhydon in particular is a favorable option, as it can switch into Fire-types with ease, bar Ninetales, in the case of Frosmoth not having enough boosts through Quiver Dance to take them on. Additionally, Charizard and Mudsdale can switch into Passimian's Close Combat, which Frosmoth greatly appreciates.

Frosmoth is a potent set-up Pokemon thanks to its useful ability, Ice Scales, which doubles its Special Defense, allowing it to setup against Pokemon strong special attackers like Alolan Raichu, Vikavolt, and Vanilluxe. Hurricane lets Frosmoth break past threatening Pokemon that resist its STABs, like Salazzle which has a high chance of being OHKOed after Frosmoth has one Special Attack boost. Hurricane can also be beneficial against nuisances such as Scrafty, and can pick off Pokemon like Charizard and Escavalier when weakened. somewhere in here mention giga drain's uses over bug buzz (namely eviscerating jellicent and regaining some hp against neutral targets) Heavy-Duty Boots are essential to this set, as Frosmoth's 4x weakness to Rock is extremely problematic and severely hinders would otherwise hinder its chance at a sweep. Additionally, Heavy-Duty Boots allow Frosmoth to pivot in and out vs weaker Special attackers such as Vileplume and Rotom.

Frosmoth is a potent set-up(RH)(make it one word, "setup") Pokemon thanks to its ability,(RC) Ice Scales (RC) which doubles its Special Defense (removed because this is dex info + seems not very useful given you clarify the purpose of the ability immediately after anyhow + it's kinda false because the stat isn't being boosted), allowing it to setup set up against strong Special special attackers like Alolan Raichu, Vikavolt, and Vanilluxe. Giga Drain can be used over Bug Buzz to deal with bulky Water-types like Jellicent and Gastrodon, which could otherwise poison Frosmoth with Toxic Frosmoth and put it on a timer. Giga Drain can also be useful for regaining health, increasing Frosmoth's longevity and ability to tank hits from powerful attackers. Hurricane lets Frosmoth break past threatening Pokemon that resist its STABs moves, like Salazzle,(AC) which has a high chance of being OHKOed after Frosmoth has one Special Attack boost one Quiver Dance (more specific and less verbose sure). Hurricane can also be beneficial against nuisances such as Scrafty (RC) and can pick off Pokemon like Charizard and Escavalier when they're weakened.(reorder the moves to have Hurricane come before the Bug Buzz / Giga Drain slash imo and then adjust the sentence order accordingly) Heavy-Duty Boots are is essential to this set, as Frosmoth's 4x weakness to Rock is extremely problematic and would otherwise hinder its chances to at a sweep. Additionally, Heavy-Duty Boots allows Frosmoth to pivot in and out vs against weaker Special special attackers such as Vileplume and Rotom.(I don't really see how Boots lets Frosmoth do this; it more a matter of it being able to do so more reliably because Frosmoth won't have to worry about hazards damage?)

Few Pokemon can handle Frosmoth after a Quiver Dance, but bulky Steel- and Rock-types like Copperajah, Escavalier, and Coalossal can switch into Frosmoth it without much worry and threaten it out. Therefore, it's pivotal you to include a few switch-ins to these Pokemon (such as...? she includes an example in the next clause and sentence thereafter); Heavy-Duty Boots Charizard is a great partner thanks to its bulk, STAB Flamethrower, and ability to Toxic badly poison Pokemon like Jellicent with Toxic, which could prevent Frosmoth from setting up and (optional but more specifically addresses what Taunt does) sweeping with Taunt. Ground-types such as Rhydon, Steelix, and Mudsdale are good teammates,(AC) as they can force out Steel- and Rock-types, as well as set up Stealth Rock, further assisting Frosmoth in its goal to sweep teams. Rhydon (RC) in particular (RC) is a favourable favorable option,(AC) as it can switch into Fire-types with ease, bar Ninetales, in the case of Frosmoth not having enough boosts through Quiver Dance to take them on. Additionally, Charizard and Mudsdale can switch into Passimian's Close Combat, which Frosmoth greatly appreciates.
