Magnezone [QC 1/2]

[OVERVIEW]

Magnezone stands out as a great wallbreaker in NU thanks to its STAB combo and offensive power. Magnezone destroys common physical defense walls like Slowbro, Vileplume, and Dragalge. Choice Specs provides Magnezone a ton of nuking power with Analytic, allowing it to break through its checks like Alolan Muk and Registeel. Assault Vest sets give Magnezone the ability to tank powerful special attacks from Dragalge, Munkidori, and Porygon-Z. Magnezone can also trap and remove Steel-types like Copperajah, Registeel, and Klefki with Magnet Pull. Magnezone biggest problem is the low speed making it easy to get revenge killed by faster threats like Lycanroc-D, Mienshao, and Flygon. Magnezone's 4x weakness to Ground is also problematic since common Ground-types like Flygon, krookodile, and Swampert can force it to switch. It also lacks longevity making it easy for it to get worn down over the course of the battle despite its good typing.

Choice Specs Magnezone goes all in with its massive Special Attack stat to hit Incredibly hard with Analytic boosting its power. Modest is preferred to hit targets like Alolan Muk and Assault Vest Gallade harder, but Timid can be used to outspeed opposing Magnezone and unboosted Adamant Torterra. Volt Switch allows Magnezone to pivot out from special walls like Alolan Muk, Reuniclus, and Assault Vest Magnezone to bring in strong wallbreakers against them and it provides useful chip. Tera Blast Grass hits Ground-types like krookodile, and Rhyperior; also, it hits Swampert and Quagsire who both resist Flash Cannon aswell. Tera Grass also gives Magnezone a resistance to Water- and Ground-type attacks from these Pokemon. Magnet Pull is another option over Analytic allowing Magnezone to trapped and destroy Steel-types such as Copperajah, Klefki, and Registeel, but extra damageon force switches increases its threat.

Magnezone best pairs with Grass-types like Tsareena, Brute Bonnet, and Vileplume to handle Ground-types such as Flygon, Krookodile, and Rhyperior. Magnezone can also struggled against Fire-types like Chandelure, Infernape, and Incineroar, so it pairs greatly with Water-types like Slowbro, Swampert, and Basculegion to handle the Fire-types. Wallbreakers like Mienshao, Lycanroc-D, and Krookodile appreciate Magnezone's ability to pivot to bring them in on Pokemon they threaten like Alolan Muk, Reuniclus, and opposing Magnezone. Magnezone is a excellent facilitator for VoltTurn teams, paring well with offensive pivots like Mienshao, Flygon, and Infernape. They can beat Special walls like Brute Bonnet, Registeel, and Alolan Muk for Magnezone; in return, it checks physical walls like Vileplume, Dragalge, and Slowbro. Munkidori is a great partner for Magnezone since it checks Fighting-types like Mienshao, Infernape, and Gallade. Its ability Toxic Chain spreading Toxic on its U-turn allows it to cripple Magnezone's Ground-type checks like Swampert and Krookodile. Magnezone appreciate hazards support from teammates like Rhyperior and Diancie wearing down foes that can repeatedly switch into Magnezone. Fairy- and Poison-types like Sylveon, Florges, and Dragalge are great partners for Magnezone since they can check Fighting-types like Mienshao and Infernape.

[SET COMMENTS]
Set Details
====

The main appeal of Assault Vest Magnezone is the ability to tank hits from Special wallbreakers like Porygon-Z, Dragalge, and Reuniclus. The EV spreads allows Magnezone to become a bulky tank and 44 Spe allows it to outspeed foes like Rhyperior, Diancie, and Swampert. Tera Grass alongside Tera Blast both allows Magnezone to hit Ground- and Water-types like Rhyperior, Quagsire, and Krookodile, and gifts it a resistance to Ground-type attacks from pokemon like Flygon, krookodile, and Swampert. However, Tera Dragon can be ran instead, in combination with Body Press, to help Magnezone better take on Fire-type attacks in a pinch from Chandelure and Scovillain.

Wallbreakers like Mienshao, Flygon, and Inteleon appreciate Magnezone's slow Volt Switch allowing them to enter freely. Fighting-types like Mienshao, Infernape, and Gallade can outspeed Magnezone and they can force it out. So pair it with physical walls like Slowbro, Vileplume, and Reuniclus that handles the Fighting-types. Ground-types like Flygon, Krookodile, and Swampert can switch into its Electric-type attacks and revenge kill it with their STAB Earthquake. So pair it with Grass-types like Brute Bonnet, Tsareena, and Vileplume for handling Ground-types. Magnezone appreciates Water-types like Slowbro and Swampert for checking Fire-types like Chandelure, Infernape, and Hisuian Typhlosion.

[STRATEGY COMMENTS]
Other Options
====

Magnezone can run a IronPress set with a bulkier EV spread of 252 HP / 212 SpD / 44 Spe to trap Steel-types with Magnet Pull and either free up a partner like Sylveon and Munkidori to break better or it can snowball a game. It can also pressure special walls like Alolan Muk and Registeel that would usually tank its STAB attacks. Magnet Rise can be very useful for Magnezone giving it an immunity to Ground-type attacks, but it's very hard to slot it on IronPress sets. Thunder Wave can be used on the IronPress sets allowing it to paralyze faster threats like Mienshao and Chandelure. However, if it doesn't have Flash Cannon it can make Magnezone a lot more passive against physical walls like Dragalge and Vileplume both of them can resist Thunderbolt and Body Press. Magnezone can run a Choice Scarf to outspeed foes like Mew, Porygon-Z, and Lucario. However, it lacks the power of Choice Specs and it's completely outclassed by Mienshao, Flygon, and Krookodile; they are more faster than Magnezone and they have more options for their team. Air Balloon gives it an immunity to Ground-type attacks and doesn't waste a move slot, but Magnezone would prefer to run other items most of the time. Discharge allows it to deal damage against foes and has a chance to paralyze of its opponents. Tera Blast Flying allows Magnezone to destroy Fighting-types like Mienshao, Gallade, and Infernape, but, then, it struggles against Swampert and Quagsire. Tera Flying gives Magnezone a resistance to Fighting-type attacks and immunity to Ground-type attacks. Alternatively, Tera Ghost gives Magnezone an immunity to Fighting-type attacks.

Checks and Counters
====

**Ground-types**: Flygon, Krookodile, and Rhyperior can destroy Magnezone with their STAB Earthquake, but none of them want to switch into Analytic Flash Cannon. Swampert and Quagsire both resist of its STAB attacks making it very hard to handle them. However, both of them get demolish by Tera Blast Grass.

**Fire-types**: Chandelure, Infernape, and Incineroar can destroy Magnezone with their STAB Fire-type attacks, but none of them want to switch into Analytic Thunderbolt.

**Fighting-types**: Mienshao, Gallade, and Infernape can outspeed Magnezone and destroy it with their Fighting-type STAB attacks. However, they can’t switch into its attacks very well.

**Special walls**: Special walls like Alolan Muk, Reuniclus, and Assault Vest Gallade can tank hits from Magnezone and threatens it back by Knock Off. However, they can get worn down by entry hazards or getting chip down by Volt Switch.

Assault Vest sets give Magnezone the ability to tank powerful special attacks from Dragalge, Munkidori, and Porygon-Z; also, it doesn't make Magnezone lock into one of its moves like the Choice Specs sets. Magnezone can also trap and remove Steel-types like Copperajah, Registeel, and Klefki with Magnet Pull. Magnezone biggest problem is the low Speed making it easy to get revenge killed by faster threats like Lycanroc-D, Mienshao, and Flygon. Magnezone’s 4x weakness to Ground can make it a lot more difficult is also problematic since common Ground-types like Flygon, Krookodile, and Swampert can force it to switch.

Although, the latter is still very useful allowing to 2HKO foes like Alolan Muk and Assault Vest Gallade on the switch. Volt Switch allows Magnezone to pivot out from special walls like Alolan Muk, Reuniclus, and Incineroar Assault Vest Magnezone incin is uncommon n better sd imo to bring in strong wallbreakers against them, and it can provides useful chip them for itself. Volt Switch is very spammable since none of the Ground-types don't want to switch into Choice Specs Flash Cannon nor Tera Blast Grass. fluff Flash Cannon allows it to hit foes that is resistance to its electric Stabs like Vileplume, Dragalge, and Brute Bonnet. it’s stab u’ll run it no matter what Tera Blast Grass hits Ground-types like Flygon, f cannon hits it harder Krookodile and Rhyperior; also, it hits Swampert and Quagsire that resistance to who both resist Flash Cannon aswell. Tera Grass also gives Magnezone a resistance to Water- and Ground-type attacks from these Pokemon. Magnet Pull is another option over Analytic allowing Magnezone to trapped and destroy Steel-types such as Copperajah, Klefki, and Registeel, but extra damage on forced switches increases its threat.

Magnezone best pairs with Grass-types like Tsareena, Brute Bonnet, and Vileplume to handle Ground-types such as Flygon, Krookodile, and Rhyperior. Magnezone can also struggled against Fire-types like Chandelure, Infernape, and Incineroar; since, they can switch into Choice Specs Flash Cannon. the threat is clear from typing alone S, so it pairs greatly with Water-types like Slowbro, Swampert, and Vaporeon Basculegion bad mon to handle the Fire-types. Wallbreakers like Mienshao, Lycanroc-D, and Mew Krookodile mew sets up but krook can abuse volts better appreciate Magnezone’s slow ability to pivoting to bring them in with a safe entry without it getting damaged on Pokemon they threaten like Alolan Muk, Reuniclus, and opposing Magnezone.

Its ability Toxic Chain spreading Toxic on its U-turn allows it to cripple Magnezone's Fire- and Ground-type checks like Infernape, Chandelure, i’d list defensive mons that get crippled by toxic bc offensive ones dont care much nor r they switchin in vs zone (but any ground type works here bc volt switch in causes tox chip) Swampert and Krookodile. Magnezone is variable against hazards so pair it with removers like Tsareena, Talonflame, and Noivern to get rid of entry hazards. it resist hazards but u culd add a fight resist part here bc of how annoying n common mienshao is

Alternatively, Tera Blast Water hits Fire-types like Infernape, Chandelure, and Incineroar while maintaining the ability to hit Ground-types. c y above Tera Grass is still an option allowing Magnezone a resistance to Ground- and Water-type u dont care abt water rly attacks from pokemon like Flygon, Krookodile, and Slowbro Swampert.

Tera Grass is still an option giving Magnezone an resistance to Ground- and Water-type attacks from foes like Flygon, Slowbro, and Rhyperior. u repeated urself

Wallbreakers like Mienshao, Flygon, and Inteleon appreciate its Magnezone’s slow Volt Switch allowing them to enter freely get a safe free entry. Magnezone appreciate hazards support from teammates like Rhyperior and Diancie wearing down foes that can repeatedly switch into Magnezone. i’d put this in specs if u want bc av is js for survival n pivot Fighting-types like Mienshao, Infernape, and Gallade can outspeed Magnezone and they can force it out. So pair it with physical walls like Slowbro, Vileplume, and Reuniclus that handles the Fighting-types. Hazards removers like Tsareena, Talonflame, and Noivern can be great partners for Magnezone allowing them to remove entire hazards. zone isnt special when it comes to hazards even av isnt rly worried Ground-types like Flygon, Krookodile, and Swampert can switch into its Electric-type attacks Stab and revenge killed it with their STAB Earthquake. So pair it with Grass-types like Brute Bonnet, Tsareena, and Vileplume for handling Ground-types. Magnezone appreciates Water-types like Slowbro and Swampert, and Vaporeon for checking Fire-types like Chandelure, Infernape, and Hisuian Typhlosion.

put a mention of ironpress in oo (n if u want to mention teras there mention ghost/flying)

**Faster Attackers**: Mienshao, Gallade, Chandelure and Flygon can outspeed Magnezone and OHKO it with their STAB attacks or coverage options, but none of them don't want to switch into its STAB moves. im not too sure abt this section since every mon u list is alr mentioned somewhere else n their speed isnt what’s threatening you but their typing

Modest is preferred to hit targets like Alolan Muk and Assault Vest Gallade harder, but Timid can be used to outspeed opposing Magnezone and unboosted Adamant Torterra. Volt Switch allows Magnezone to pivot out from special walls like Alolan Muk, Reuniclus, and Assault Vest Magnezone to bring in strong wallbreakers against them and it provides useful chip. Tera Blast Grass hits Ground-types like krookodile, and Rhyperior; also, it hits Swampert and Quagsire who both resist Flash Cannon aswell. Tera Grass also gives Magnezone a resistance to Water- and Ground-type attacks from these Pokemon. Magnet Pull is another option over Analytic allowing Magnezone to trapped and destroy Steel-types such as Copperajah, Klefki, and Registeel, but extra damageon force switches increases its threat.

Magnezone best pairs with Grass-types like Tsareena, Brute Bonnet, and Vileplume to handle Ground-types such as Flygon, Krookodile, and Rhyperior. Magnezone can also struggled against Fire-types like Chandelure, Infernape, and Incineroar, so it pairs greatly with Water-types like Slowbro, Swampert, and Basculegion to handle the Fire-types. Wallbreakers like Mienshao, Lycanroc-D, and Krookodile appreciate Magnezone's ability to pivot to bring them in on Pokemon they threaten like Alolan Muk, Reuniclus, and opposing Magnezone. Magnezone is a excellent facilitator for VoltTurn teams, paring well with offensive pivots like Mienshao, Flygon, and Infernape. They can beat Special walls like Brute Bonnet, Registeel, and Alolan Muk for Magnezone; in return, it checks physical walls like Vileplume, Dragalge, and Slowbro. Munkidori is a great partner for Magnezone since it checks Fighting-types like Mienshao, Infernape, and Gallade. Its ability Toxic Chain spreading Toxic on its U-turn allows it to cripple Magnezone's Ground-type checks like Swampert and Krookodile. Magnezone appreciate hazards support from teammates like Rhyperior and Diancie wearing down foes that can repeatedly switch into Magnezone. Fairy- and Poison-types like Sylveon, Florges, and Dragalge are great partners for Magnezone since they can check Fighting-types like Mienshao and Infernape.

Set Details
====

The main appeal of Assault Vest Magnezone is the ability to tank hits from Special wallbreakers like Porygon-Z, Dragalge, and Reuniclus. The EV spreads allows Magnezone to become a bulky tank and 44 Spe allows it to outspeed foes like Rhyperior, Diancie, and Swampert. Tera Grass alongside Tera Blast Grass both allows Magnezone to hits Ground- and Water-types like Rhyperior, Quagsire, and Krookodile, and gifts it Tera Grass is still an option allowing Magnezone a resistance to Ground-type attacks from pokemon like Flygon, krookodile, and Swampert. However, Tera Dragon can be ran instead, in combination with Body Press, to help Magnezone better take on Fire-type attacks in a pinch from Chandelure and Scovillain.

Wallbreakers like Mienshao, Flygon, and Inteleon appreciate Magnezone's slow Volt Switch allowing them to enter freely. Fighting-types like Mienshao, Infernape, and Gallade can outspeed Magnezone and they can force it out. So pair it with physical walls like Slowbro, Vileplume, and Reuniclus that handles the Fighting-types. Ground-types like Flygon, Krookodile, and Swampert can switch into its Electric-type attacks and revenge kill it with their STAB Earthquake. So pair it with Grass-types like Brute Bonnet, Tsareena, and Vileplume for handling Ground-types. Magnezone appreciates Water-types like Slowbro and Swampert for checking Fire-types like Chandelure, Infernape, and Hisuian Typhlosion.

Other Options
====

Magnezone can run a IronPress set with a bulkier EV spread of 252 HP / 212 SpD / 44 Spe to trap Steel-types with Magnet Pull and either free up a partner like Sylveon and Munkidori to break better or it can snowball a game. It can also pressure special walls like Alolan Muk and Registeel. Magnet Rise can be very useful for Magnezone giving it an immunity to Ground-type attacks, but it's very hard to slot it on IronPress sets. Thunder Wave can be used on the IronPress sets allowing it to paralyze faster threats like Mienshao and Chandelure. However, if it doesn't have Flash Cannon it can make Magnezone a lot more passive against physical walls like Dragalge and Vileplume both of them can resist Thunderbolt and Body Press. Magnezone can run a Choice Scarf to outspeed foes like Mew, Porygon-Z, and Lucario. However, it lacks the power of Choice Specs and it's completely outclassed by Mienshao, Flygon, and Krookodile; they are more faster than Magnezone and they have more options for their team. Air Balloon gives it an immunity to Ground-type attacks and doesn't waste a move slot, but Magnezone would prefer to run other items most of the time. Magnet Rise can be very useful for Magnezone giving it an immunity to Ground-type attacks, but it's very hard to slot it on IronPress sets. Thunder Wave can be used on the IronPress sets allowing it to paralyze faster threats like Mienshao and Chandelure. However, if it doesn't have Flash Cannon it can make Magnezone a lot more passive against physical walls like Dragalge and Vileplume both of them can resist Thunderbolt and Body Press. i moved it up higher for consistency Discharge allows it to deal damage against foes and has a chance to paralyze of its opponents. Tera Blast Flying allows Magnezone to destroy Fighting-types like Mienshao, Gallade, and Infernape, but, then, it struggles against Swampert and Quagsire. Tera Flying gives Magnezone a resistance to Fighting-type attacks and immunity to Ground-type attacks. Alternatively, Tera Ghost gives Magnezone an immunity to Fighting-type attacks.

Checks and Counters
====

**Ground-types**: Flygon, Krookodile, and Rhyperior can destroy Magnezone with their STAB Earthquake, but none of them want to switch into Analytic Flash Cannon. Swampert and Quagsire both resist of its STAB attacks making it very hard to handle them. However, both of them get demolish by Tera Blast Grass.

**Fire-types**: Chandelure, Infernape, and Incineroar can destroy Magnezone with their STAB Fire attacks, but none of them want to switch into Analytic Thunderbolt.

**Fighting-types**: Mienshao, Gallade, and Infernape can outspeed Magnezone and destroy it with their Fighting-type STAB attacks. However, they can’t switch into its attacks very well.

**Special walls**: Special walls like Alolan Muk, Reuniclus, and Assault Vest Gallade can tank hits from Magnezone and threatens it back by Knock Off. However, they can get worn down by entry hazards or getting chip down by Volt Switch.
