LC (LC) Diglett

Urushifu

Banned deucer.
Diglett @ Air Balloon
Ability: Arena Trap
Level: 5
EVs: 36 HP / 236 Atk / 236 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Earthquake
- Beat Up
- Substitute
- Final Gambit

Floating above the competition, Diglett is one of the most threatening Pokemon in LC with its ability to pick off weakened foes thanks to Arena Trap. Air Balloon allows it to avoid being trapped by opposing Arena Trap Pokemon and blocks the effect of Sticky Web. There are some Pokemon that Earthquake alone cannot remove however, but Diglett's excellent coverage moves are able to help remove these threats. Beat Up allows Diglett to remove Pokemon equipped with a Focus Sash such as Abra, while Substitute lets Diglett play around Pawniard's Sucker Punch. Finally, Final Gambit lets Diglett act as an emergency check to Pokemon such as Vullaby that it otherwise cannot remove. Try this Diglett set out with Pokemon like Mienfoo and Vulpix that appreciate its ability to remove threats to them such as Mareanie and Ponyta, respectively.

Wrong ability. Also Diglett is not threatening with the ability to trap it is threatening because it can trap; fix the wording. Also better to stop the sentence here I think.
Air Balloon allowing it to avoid being trapped by opposing Arena Trap Pokemon and avoids the effect of Sticky Web.
worthwhile to frontload the explanation here of sticky web
Final Gambit in conjuction with Air Balloon preventing the speed decrease from Sticky Webs lets Diglett emergency check setup sweepers such as Vullaby.
I would rewrite this say Dig can be an emergency check to many pokemon including some set up pokemon. this isnt sticky web only
Try this Diglett set out with Pokemon like Mienfoo and Foongus that appreciate Diglett
Pick either Grookey or Vulpix and say Ponyta. Removing Abra is typically just your main counterplay and it is less teammate bound than the central idea of sentence. Mostly a nitpick.

hit me up when you are done changing things

ok I've rewritten this to be more in line with the recommended way to write it, apologies for that.

Earthquake is Digletts best move to pick off weakened Pokemon and can dispatch threats such as Mareanie and Pawniard.
remove this one; the following sentence covers your bases perfectly.
You previously had a sentence talking about sub being useful for Pawniard Sucker Punch before, add that back please.
After those two changes this is QC 1/1. Sorry for the delay.
