Linoone-Galar is a reliable revenge-killer thanks to its Quick Feet and can hit decently hard with its boosted Facade. Linoone-Galar is able support teammates with its pivoting through Parting Shot. Knock Off lets Linoone-Galar cripple Pokemon such as Mawile and Palpitoad that rely on their items. Protect allows Linoone-Galar to safely activate its Toxic Orb for Quick Feet, block First Impression from Falinks or Fraxure, and scout against Choiced pokemon. Linoone-Galar's speed tier and ability to switch moves sets it apart from other fast revenge killers like Choice Scarf Thwackey and Manectric but can be worn down quickly between Toxic and hazards. A set using Double Edge over Facade with Eviolite gives Linoone-Galar more bulk in exchange for immediately taking advantage of Quick Feet.

Wallbreakers such as Heatmor or Octillery appreciate the ability to come in safely and pressure Pokemon Linoone-Galar may have lured such as Mawile. In return Linoone-Galar is able to pick off Pokemon weakened by them. Linoone-Galar is prone to being taken advantage of by Pawniard, and can be remedied by Fighting-types such as Falinks and Throh. Linoone-Galar can also form a pivoting core with Manectric, Silvally, or Raichu to wear down the opposing team. Linoone-Galar's Parting Shot drops can also help set up sweepers like Hakamo-o and Sivally-Ice have an easier time boosting. As Linoone will be frequently entering the field, hazard removal from Mr. Rime or Carkol is appreciated too. Mareanie or Gloom can also stomach Fighting-type moves for Linoone-Galar such as Grapploct's Drain Punch.

I think eviolite w/double edge instead should be worth a small mention as well, gonna see if anyone else on qc agrees

In return Linoone-Galar is able to pick off Pokemon weakened by them. Linoone-Galar is prone to being taken advantage of by Pawniard, and can be remedied by Fighting-types such as Hitmontop and Throh. Linoone-Galar can also form a pivoting core with Manectric, Silvally, or Raichu to wear down the opposing team. Linoone-Galar's Parting Shot drops can also help set up sweepers like Hakamo-o and Sivally-Grass have an easier time boosting. As Linoone will be frequently entering the field, hazard removal from Hitmontop u already suggested hitmontop above, might as well say rime or something or Silvally-Bug is appreciated too. Silvally-Bug, Mareanie or Gloom can also stomach Fighting-type moves for Linoone-Galar such as Hitmontop's Mach Punch.
