Guzzlord @ Leftovers
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 76 Def / 252 SpD / 180 Spe
Careful Nature
- Knock Off
- Dragon Tail
- Rest
- Sleep Talk

Guzzlord devours the NU tier with its amazing bulk and solid defensive typing! A specially defensive set trades in the Choice Band set's wallbreaking prowess for a solid check to threats such as Indeedee-F and Rotom-C. Knock Off allows Guzzlord to make great progress in games, even debilitating switch-ins such as Sylveon and Diancie that it can't phaze. Dragon Tail prevents it from being used as setup fodder from the likes of Toxicroak and Snorlax, even after Rest thanks to Sleep Talk. Due to Guzzlord's susceptibility to Fairy-types like Sylveon, answers such as Copperajah, Salazzle, and Talonflame make for potent partners, taking advantage of Guzzlord luring them in. Sylveon's also a solid partner itself, providing Wish to sustain Guzzlord and make it less reliant on RestTalk, while also checking Fighting-types like Passimian and Gallade that force Guzzlord out. The given EV spread allows it to outspeed Vaporeon, Copperajah, and Vileplume while maximizing its special bulk, letting it pivot into Pokemon like Salazzle and Rotom-C more often.

Guzzlord devours the NU tier with its amazing bulk and solid defensive typing! A specially defensive set trades in the Choice Band set's wallbreaking prowess for the ability to function as a solid check into threats such as Indeedee-F and Rotom-C. Knock Off is Guzzlord's most spammable attacking move, allows Guzzlord to make great progress in games, even crippling switch-ins such as Sylveon and Diancie that it can't phaze out. The combination of Rest + Sleep Talk make up for Guzzlord's lack of reliable recovery, while preventing it from being a total sitting duck while asleep. Dragon Tail prevents Guzzlord from being used as setup fodder from the likes of Toxicroak and Snorlax. Due to Guzzlord's susceptibility to Fairy-type moves, resists such as Copperajah, Salazzle, and Talonflame make for potent partners, taking advantage of Pokemon such as Sylveon which are lured in. Sylveon also serves as a solid partner itself, being able to provide Wishes to sustain Guzzlord longer, making it less reliant on RestTalk, while also checking Fighting-types like Passimian and Gallade which threaten Guzzlord out. The given EV spread allows it to outspeed Vaporeon, Copperajah, and Vileplume while maximising its special bulk, letting it pivot into pokemon like Blastoise good riddance Salazzle and Rotom-C more often.
1/1 when done :o
