hidden power fire tapu koko

:ss/tapu koko:
Tapu Koko @ Shuca Berry / @ Magnet
Ability: Electric Surge
Hidden Power: Ice
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

Timid Nature
- Thunderbolt

- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Calm Mind
- Roost

Tapu Koko with Hidden Power Fire is a great lure to Ferrothorn, as Ferrothorn always is a great Pokemon to check and deal with Tapu Koko, as it takes a pitful amount from Hidden Power Ice and Thunderbolt / Dazzling Gleam the two respective STABs of Tapu Koko, therefore Ferrothorn is always a great choice to handle Tapu Koko and with Leftovers + Leech Seed Ferrothorn always has a great pseudo-way of gaining recovery. But with Hidden Power Fire Tapu Koko is able to turn the tides and can break through Ferrothorn and heavily weaken it in the progress.

calc:
252 SpA Tapu Koko Hidden Power Fire vs. 252 HP / 232+ SpD Ferrothorn: 140-168 (39.7 - 47.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
+1 252 SpA Tapu Koko Hidden Power Fire vs. 252 HP / 232+ SpD Ferrothorn: 208-248 (59 - 70.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery

Reserving Tapu Lele Modest AoA.

S/O to pujo for the set

:SM/Tapu Lele:
Tapu Lele @ Mind Plate
Ability: Psychic Surge
EVs: 44 HP / 252 SpA / 212 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Psychic
- Psyshock
- Moonblast
- Hidden Power [Fire] / Focus Blast​

For most people, Tapu Lele is either Calm Mind Z-Fight / Z-Psy or Choice Specs Timid. Thus, the simultaneous possession of the Mind Plate and the Modest nature allows this set of Lele to reach with his psy-stab rolls similar to the set of Choice Specs Timid. Thus, a steel which comes to take psychic / psyshock, thinking to be safe because deducing that the Tapu Lele is choice-locked, will stay and, therefore, Tapu Lele will be able to destroy the steel with Hidden Power [Fire] / Focus Blast. Concerning the spread, 212 speed allows Tapu Lele to outspeed 252 speed timid Heatran. Moreover, Hidden Power [Fire] is better for Scizor-Mega and Focus Blast for Heatran.

ice beam shuca berry tyranitar

:ss/tyranitar:
Tyranitar @ Shuca Berry
Ability: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe

Adamant Nature
- Stealth Rock

- Stone Edge
- Pursuit

- Ice Beam

Ice Beam Tyranitar is a great lure for Landorus-T, as with Shuca Berry it is also able to tank 1 Earathquake with ease. Usually Landorus-T is a decent choice as a check for Tyranitar and can tank 1 or 2 hits, as Intimidate helps it in this way, but with Shuca Berry equipped and Ice Beam Tyranitar makes up for a great lure. Ice Beam is also able to have a chance of OHKOing offensive Landorus-T, whereas on defensive variants, it can chip Landorus-T very easily.

w/o rocks:
4- SpA Tyranitar Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Landorus-Therian: 272-320 (71.2 - 83.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
4- SpA Tyranitar Ice Beam vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Landorus-Therian: 272-320 (85.2 - 100.3%) -- 6.3% chance to OHKO
4- SpA Tyranitar Ice Beam vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Landorus-Therian: 272-320 (85.2 - 100.3%) -- 6.3% chance to OHKO

with rocks:
4- SpA Tyranitar Ice Beam vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Landorus-Therian: 272-320 (85.2 - 100.3%) -- 81.3% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock
4- SpA Tyranitar Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Landorus-Therian: 272-320 (71.2 - 83.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
