[SET COMMENTS]
With an incredibly powerful STAB option in Fishious Rend and a respectable typing that allows it to check Pokemon such as Excadrill, Zacian-C, and Zamazenta, Gyarados carves itself a niche as a good late-game cleaner while also restricting defensive counterplay due to Fishious Rend's absurd power. Gyarados is also able to inconvenience Electric-type Pokemon once set-up with moves such as Earthquake, Obstruct, and Will-O-Wisp while also being strong enough that these Pokemon do not enjoy coming in directly even without setup. While Melmetal would normally be able to check Gyarados, Obstruct alongside coverage to hit Steel-types makes that job difficult, and Will-O-Wisp can inconvenience it as well. However, Prankster Melmetal can also inconvenience this set by preventing Gyarados from setting up reliably. U-turn is very helpful for getting out of unfavorable situations while dealing some chip damage, and it allows Gyarados to stay in and inflict status on some Pokemon without getting trapped. Due to the set's passive recovery, Gyarados is incredibly difficult to wear down throughout the course of the game while also beating Imposter Pokemon that transform into it and being immune to status. Gyarados running an Adamant nature still allows it to outspeed every unboosted Pokemon in the metagame after a Shift Gear, so the extra power boost is preferred.

Teammates that can switch into Electric-types such as Eternatus and Fur Coat Melmetal are recommended. Imposter Pokemon such as Wobbuffet are recommended due to their ability to gather information about the opponent's team while also forcing out most offensive Pokemon that can inconvenience Gyarados. This helps in case Pokemon that Gyarados can normally check, such as Zacian-C and Galarian Darmanitan-Z, are running Bolt Beak. Melmetal and Eternatus are great defensive options due to viably running Defog, which helps Gyarados, as it does not enjoy Stealth Rock. In Eternatus's case, it can also run a Magic Bounce set, further deterring Stealth Rock. Special wallbreakers such as Lunala and Kyurem-W enjoy Gyarados's ability to take care of special walls such as Snorlax, and in return, they can take care of Pokemon that wall Gyarados such as Melmetal and Eternatus.

evs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Def / 252 SpD / 252 Spe

With an incredibly powerful STAB option in Fishious Rend and a respectable typing what does its typing do for it specifically? mention how melm usually cant threaten it and how it can check dgz, zac-c and zama if they dont have bolt beak, Gyarados carves itself a niche as a good late game cleaner while also occasionally disrupting defensive Pokemon due to Fishious Rend's absurd power unclear what 'occasionally disrupting' means here. While Electric-types such as Zeraora and Zekrom give Gyarados a hard time in setting up you don't really need to tell people that gyarados cant set up in front of electric types, but talking about how it can beat them once set up is good, Gyarados is able to inconvenience these Pokemon with moves such as Earthquake, Obstruct and Will-O-Wisp, while also being strong enough that these Pokemon do not enjoy coming in directly. While Melmetal would normally be able to check Gyarados, Obstruct alongside Steel-type coverage coverage to hit steel-types, not steel-type coverage. this implies gyara is running steel moves makes that job difficult, and Will-O-Wisp can inconvenience it as well. U-turn is very helpful for getting out of unfavorable situations while dealing some chip damage lets you stay in to burn/scout melm's set without losing to anchor shot. Due to the set's passive recovery, Gyarados is incredibly difficult to wear down throughout the course of the game and is immune to status (particularly wisp) and beats imposter. say something about why youre adamant nature

Teammates that can switch into Electric-types such as Runerigus and Rhydon are recommended would prefer to mention mons here that are a bit less niche, maybe defensive etern and fc melm instead. Imposter Wobbuffet is recommended due to its ability to gather information about the opponent's team while also forcing out most offensive Pokemon that can inconvenience Gyarados why does gyara want you to gather info?. Melmetal and Eternatus are great defensive options due to viably running Defog, which helps Gyarados as it does not enjoy Stealth Rock. They also check Zacian-C and Zamazenta respectively, which is incredibly helpful as both can outspeed and KO Gyarados this last sentence is unnecessary, gyara beats these after a boost anyway and usually beats variants that dont have bolt beak.

With an incredibly powerful STAB option in Fishious Rend and a respectable typing that allows it to check Pokemon such as Galar Darmanitan-Z this is a pretty loose check considering (252 Atk Choice Band Darmanitan-Galar-Zen Icicle Crash vs. 252 HP / 252 Def Gyarados: 223-264 (56.5 - 67%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Poison Heal). Would give a better example here like maybe Excadrill or something, Zacian-C and Zamazenta, Gyarados carves itself a niche as a good late game cleaner while also restricting defensive counterplay due to Fishious Rend's absurd power. Gyarados is also able to inconvenience Electric-type Pokemon once set up with moves such as Earthquake, Obstruct and Will-O-Wisp, while also being strong enough that these Pokemon do not enjoy coming in directly even without setup. While Melmetal would normally be able to check Gyarados, Obstruct alongside coverage to hit Steel-types makes that job difficult, and Will-O-Wisp can inconvenience it as well Note that Prank Melm sets can still be an annoyance especially those that elect to run Encore. U-turn is very helpful for getting out of unfavorable situations while dealing some chip damage, and it allows you to stay in and status some Pokemon without getting trapped. Due to the set's passive recovery, Gyarados is incredibly difficult to wear down throughout the course of the game, while also beating Imposter Pokemon that transform into it and being immune to status. Gyarados running an Adamant nature still allows it to outspeed every unboosted Pokemon in the metagame after a Shift Gear, so the extra power boost is preferred.

Teammates that can switch into Electric-types such as Eternatus and Fur Coat Melmetal are recommended. Imposter Pokemon such as Wobbuffet are recommended due to their ability to gather information about the opponent's team while also forcing out most offensive Pokemon that can inconvenience Gyarados. This helps in case Pokemon that Gyarados can normally check, such as Zacian-C and Galarian Darm-Z, are running Bolt Beak. Melmetal and Eternatus are great defensive options due to viably running Defog, which helps Gyarados as it does not also note that Etern can run a viable Magic Bounce set as well enjoy Stealth Rock.
- Make a note on special breakers like Lunala and Kyu-W who enjoy checks like Lax and Scales Zamazenta-C being broken through by Gyara as well.

With an incredibly powerful STAB option in Fishious Rend and a respectable typing that allows it to check Pokemon such as Excadrill, Zacian-C, (AC) and Zamazenta, Gyarados carves itself a niche as a good late-(AH)game cleaner while also restricting defensive counterplay due to Fishious Rend's absurd power. Gyarados is also able to inconvenience Electric-type Pokemon once set-(AH)up with moves such as Earthquake, Obstruct, (AC) and Will-O-Wisp, (RC) while also being strong enough that these Pokemon do not enjoy coming in directly even without setup. While Melmetal would normally be able to check Gyarados, Obstruct alongside coverage to hit Steel-types makes that job difficult, and Will-O-Wisp can inconvenience it as well. However, Prankster Melmetal can also inconvenience this set by preventing Gyarados from setting up reliably.
