Kitsunoh @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Iron Fist
EVs: 220 Atk / 36 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Shadow Strike
- Meteor Mash
- U-turn
- Trick / Toxic / Earthquake

Kitsunoh is one of the premier Choice Scarf users in the CAP metagame for its ability to deal with sweepers like Aurumoth, as well as other Psychic-types, and its ability to shift momentum with U-turn. Kitsunoh originally started picking up as an offensive Shell Smash Necturna check; however, Necturna got nerfed. Despite this, Kitsunoh is still an incredibly potent Pokemon thanks to its ability to deal with Psychic-types like Tapu Lele and Mega Alakazam. Additionally, Shadow Strike, Kitsunoh's signature custom move, has a 50% chance to drop the foe's Defense, making it a decent late-game cleaner too. Kitsunoh pairs well with other Steel-types like Magearna, Heatran, and Ferrothorn to consistently deal with the aforementioned Psychic-types and fits on many teams as a result.

Kitsunoh is the premier Choice Scarf users in the CAP metagame for its ability to deal with sweepers like Aurumoth, other Psychic-types, and its ability to shift around the momentum with U-turn. Kitsunoh originally started picking up as an offensive Shell Smash Necturna check, however, Necturna got nerfed. You'd expect Necturna’s nerf to affect Kitsunoh, but it didn't because of one major metagame shift. More specifically, (not really needed) Psychic-types like Tapu Lele and Mega Alakazam have become much more common, maintaining solidifying Kitsunoh's place in the metagame. Kitsunoh pairs well with other Steel-types like Magearna, Heatran, and Ferrothorn to consistently deal with the aforementioned Psychic-types and fits on many teams as a result.
(Add a little bit about Shadow Strike since its Kitsunoh's signature move and people won't necessarily know what it is.)
Nice, QC 1/1 when implemented :blobthumbsup:

Kitsunoh is one of (can't tell where the typo is here, but if it's the best then make it say user not users) the premier Choice Scarf users in the CAP metagame for its ability to deal with sweepers like Aurumoth, as well as other Psychic-types, and its ability to shift around the momentum with U-turn. Kitsunoh originally started picking up as an offensive Shell Smash Necturna check,;(RC, ASC) however, Necturna got nerfed. Despite this, Kitsunoh is still an incredibly potent Pokemon thanks to its ability to deal with Psychic-types like Tapu Lele and Mega Alakazam. Additionally, Shadow Stirke is Strike,(AC) Kitsunoh's signature custom move, which has a 50% chance to drop the foes foe's Defense, making it a decent late-game cleaner too. Kitsunoh pairs well with other Steel-types like Magearna, Heatran, and Ferrothorn to consistently deal with the aforementioned Psychic-types and fits on many teams as a result.

you know my colors, gp 1/1 when implemented
