Week 23: Virizion

Virizion @ Grassium Z /Fightinium Z
Ability: Justified
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Leaf Blade
- Close Combat
- Stone Edge / Zen Headbutt
Finally an offensive lure! Virizion is actually kind of bulky so you'll find it trying to switch into/set up on stuff as opposed to the other fighting types we have in the tier. Standard SD set with STABs + Stone Edge or Zen if it wants to hit Mandi/Chesnaught harder. Post your lures :).
 
Reserving brave bird mandibuz

Mandibuzz (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Overcoat
EVs: 252 HP / 64 Def / 188 Spe
Impish Nature
- Brave Bird
- Roost
- Foul Play
- Defog
Usually virizion uses mandibuzz as setup fodder but with bb u can ohko it while still living +2 stone edge after rocks most of the times
0 Atk Mandibuzz Brave Bird vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Virizion: 472-564 (146.1 - 174.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Gligar @ Eviolite
Ability: Immunity
EVs: 252 HP / 36 Atk / 164 Def / 56 Spe
Impish Nature
- Acrobatics
- Earthquake
- Roost
- Defog

Gligar is a liability against Viriz, often allowing an SD or two with EQ doing a pittance 20%. Acro will be enough to KO Viriz after an EQ however and we don't need to calc how much eviolite-less acro does.

36 Atk Gligar Earthquake vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Virizion: 59-69 (18.2 - 21.3%) -- possible 5HKO
36 Atk Gligar Acrobatics (55 BP) vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Virizion: 264-312 (81.7 - 96.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

alright I refuse to do a defensive pokemon for a while so this week we have

Noivern (F) @ Flyinium Z
Ability: Infiltrator
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Hurricane
- Flamethrower
- Roost
- Taunt
A mon that picked up in popularity recently from some of our metagame trends, Noivern destroys a lot of balance teams with its access to realiable recover, incredibly speed tier, and taunt + good coverage. Post your best Noivern lures! :)
 

Golisopod @ Choice Band
Ability: Emergency Exit
EVs: 152 HP / 252 Atk / 104 Spe
- First Impression
- Leech Life
- Liquidation
- Rock Slide

If there's a Noivern on the opposing team, it's likely their best and designated Goli switch in and on offense, it's probably the only thing that can actually take a First Impression. Even the bulkier Noivern's can't take a CB Rock Slide if rocks are up though.

252+ Atk Choice Band Golisopod Rock Slide vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Noivern: 316-372 (101.2 - 119.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Milotic @ Leftovers
Ability: Marvel Scale
EVs: 252 HP / 136 Def / 120 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Scald
- Recover
- Haze
- Ice Beam

Standard sdef spread which lets u switch into Specs Yan and Z move Molt and Noivern. You live cane+skystrike p comfortably and u usually ohko it back. If you're paranoid about it being at full and u getting a low roll, u can run sp atk>def, but this is honestly just a huge waste of bulk. Never go down on the sdef tho, unless u have adequate Molt/Yan counters in the back.


252 SpA Noivern Hurricane vs. 248 HP / 120+ SpD Milotic: 102-120 (25.9 - 30.5%) -- 1.7% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery
252 SpA Noivern Supersonic Skystrike (185 BP) vs. 248 HP / 120+ SpD Milotic: 169-199 (43 - 50.6%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Leftovers recovery

0 SpA Milotic Ice Beam vs. 48 HP / 0 SpD Noivern: 312-368 (96.5 - 113.9%) -- 75% chance to OHKO
This is the optimal Noivern spread btw^ It's evd to outspeed Lazzle, rest goes into HP.
 

Araquanid @ Expert Belt
Ability: Water Bubble
EVs: 64 HP / 252 SpA / 192 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Sticky Web
- Scald
- Ice Beam
- Magic Coat

Noivern is capable of walling Araquanid, so many people are inclined to switch it in vs Araquanid. Little do they know, an Expert Belt boosted Ice Beam is about to come their way, scoring a guaranteed OHKO. Ice Beam isn’t too shabby vs other threats as well.

252+ SpA Expert Belt Araquanid Ice Beam vs. 48 HP / 4 SpD Noivern: 346-408 (107.1 - 126.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

252+ SpA Expert Belt Araquanid Ice Beam vs. 248 HP / 8 SpD Chesnaught: 180-214 (47.4 - 56.4%) -- 27.3% chance to 2HKO after Leftovers recovery

252+ SpA Expert Belt Araquanid Ice Beam vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Shaymin: 144-170 (42.2 - 49.8%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

252+ SpA Expert Belt Water Bubble Araquanid Scald vs. 252 HP / 200 SpD Steelix-Mega: 331-394 (93.5 - 111.2%) -- 62.5% chance to OHKO

252+ SpA Expert Belt Araquanid Ice Beam vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Virizion: 115-137 (35.6 - 42.4%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

252+ SpA Water Bubble Araquanid Scald vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Bewear: 240-284 (62.8 - 74.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252+ SpA Expert Belt Araquanid Ice Beam vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Roserade: 137-163 (52.4 - 62.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252+ SpA Expert Belt Araquanid Ice Beam vs. 204 HP / 0 SpD Dragalge: 122-144 (37.8 - 44.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
 

Tsareena (F) @ Life Orb
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Power Whip
- Knock Off
- Play Rough
- Rapid Spin / Synthesis

Use an unmon to lure in a real mon. Tsareena usually can't do jack to Dragon Batmon unless you decide to run coverage on it. Adamant Play Rough doesn't OHKO without either Life Orb or Choice Band.

252+ Atk Life Orb Tsareena Play Rough vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Noivern: 320-377 (102.8 - 121.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Rain days are the worst
Chesnaught @ Choice Band
Ability: Bulletproof
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Stone Edge
- Drain Punch
- Wood Hammer
- Earthquake

Although Chesnaught is often used as defensive tank it also has great offensive capabilities.
When your oponent has noivern it will most likely switch in with it expecting spikes or an attack that it can resist, but they will be caught off guard with a Stone Edge that can OHKO. It can also OHKO other mons that it would not usually be able if it was the one of the regular sets.

252 Atk Choice Band Chesnaught Stone Edge vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Noivern: 344-406 (110.6 - 130.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 Atk Choice Band Chesnaught Stone Edge vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Moltres: 624-736 (194.3 - 229.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 Atk Choice Band Chesnaught Stone Edge vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Yanmega: 648-764 (207 - 244%) -- guaranteed OHKO
 

Steelix-Mega @ Steelixite
Ability: Sand Force
EVs: 252 HP / 36 Atk / 220 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Heavy Slam
- Ice Fang
- Stealth Rock
- Curse


While Noivern cannot usually directly switch into mLix, unless switching into the predicted earthquake, Noivern possesses the ability to easily 2hko mega Lix with Flamethrower. While Heavy Slam can normally threaten it, ice fang allows mega lix to easily ohko noivern, as well as 2hko other would be switch-ins, including rotom-c, flygon and virizion on the predicted switch.
