Liepard @ Choice Band
Ability: Limber
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Knock Off
- Play Rough
- Gunk Shot
- U-turn

The recent drop Liepard has great Speed and versatility, running either physical or special sets. Choice Band boosts Liepard's middling Attack stat and makes it annoying for offensive teams, with its high Speed putting it above Pokemon like Galarian Rapidash. Limber lets Liepard avoid Static and lets it pivot more freely into a teammate. Knock Off is extremely spammable and can remove Sandslash's Leftovers or Tangela's Eviolite. Play Rough hits Fighting-types like Throh. Gunk Shot nails fat Grass-types like Appletun and Tangela while removing Galarian Rapidash. Alternatively, Prankster with Copycat over Gunk Shot nets more revenge kills on Pokemon like Choice Scarf Unfezant. Pokemon like Golduck and Lilligant can be brought in via U-turn and break past Ground-types Liepard can't stay in on. Bulky Pokemon like Type: Null and Throh can switch into faster Choice Scarf users like Golduck and Manectric. Liepard also pairs nicely with setup sweepers like Nasty Plot Gourgeist and Swords Dance Falinks.

The recent drop Liepard has a great speed stat and versatility running either physical or special sets. Choice Band stands out as it provides extra power and can be annoying for offensive teams. (how? mention its speed allowing it to outspeed common threats, like galardash)(mention how it boosts its otherwise kinda meh atk)Knock Off is extremely spammable and can remove leftovers from Pokémon like Mawile or Sandslash (as well as eviolite from tangela, allowing u to 2hko with gunk shot). Play Rough lets Liepard chip (not chip, hit) Fighting-types like Throh. Gunk Shot nails fat Grass-types like Appletun and Tangela while removing Rapidash-Galar. U-turn lets Liepard pivot into other breakers. (okay.. that's cool) Limber lets Liepard avoid static from Stunfisk and lets it U-turn more freely. (i'd mention this higher, probably in the overview sentence) Though, Prankster can be ran with Copycat to net more revenge kills on Pokemon like Choice-Scarf Unfezant— usually over Play Rough (maybe we should discuss this w the rest of qc but imo play rough > gunk shot). Pokémon like Golduck and Lilligant make for solid partners that can break past Ground-types Liepard can’t stay in on. (and bring them in safely via u-turn) Bulky Pokémon like Type: Null and Throh can switch into opposing Choice-Scarf users like Golduck and Manectric that outpace Liepard. (mention stuff that takes advantage of them offensively) Liepard also pairs nicely with set-up sweepers like Nasty Plot Gourgeist and Swords Dance Falinks.

This was about 100 characters over the limit, so I had to be a bit nitpicky and try to shave this down a bit. Got it down to approximately 20 characters over.
