Naganadel @ Dragonium Z
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Nasty Plot
- Draco Meteor
- Sludge Wave
- Fire Blast

Naganadel's niche resides in its ability to break past stall and bulky teams and be a threat to offensive teams thanks to its speed, typing, and movepool. Naganadel can take advantage of forced switches by setting up with Nasty Plot, which makes it able to break through bulky cores. A strong Devastating Drake from Dragonium Z doesn't drop Special Attack, is useful to gain a Speed boost, and breaks through offensive Primal Groudon and Ho-Oh after Stealth Rock damage. Thanks to its Poison typing, Naganadel can set up on Blissey and Chansey without having to worry about Toxic but still needs Stealth Rocks support to chip at stall staples such as support Arceus formes, Ho-Oh, and Lugia. Its matchup against more offensive teams is harder, as it relies on predictions to set up or attack due to its mediocre bulk and its STAB moves being easy to pivot around. Xerneas, Mega Salamence, and Marshadow are ideal teammates, since they can break through defensive cores and wear down Naganadel's checks, while Naganadel can take on some of their checks.

One of the new Pokemon USM brought,(RC) Naganadel's niche resides in its ability to break past stall and bulky teams and being be a threat to offensive teams thanks to its speed, typing, and its movepool. Naganadel forces switches,(RC) and can take advantage of them forced switches by setting up with Nasty Plot, which makes it able to break through bulky cores. A strong Devastating Drake from Dragonium Z allows Naganadel to use Devastating Drake,(RC) a strong one-time attack that doesn't drop its Special Attack,(AC) is useful to catch gain a Speed boost,(AC) and or breaks through offensive Primal-(RH)Groudon and Ho-Oh after Stealth Rock's Rock damage,(RC).(period) Sludge Wave and Fire Blast hits most Dragon-type resists hard. (a spotlight doesn't have to explain every move, and we need to trim it down anyway) Thanks to its Poison typing, Naganadel can setup set up on Blissey and Chansey without having to worry about Toxic,(RC) but still needs Stealth Rocks support from Deoxys-Speed or Primal Groudon to chip at stall staples such as support Arceus formes, Ho-Oh,(AC) and Lugia to totally break stall. Its matchup against more offensive teams is harder, as it rely relies on 50/50 predictions to setup set up or attack due to its mediocre bulk and its STABs STAB moves being easy to pivot around. Xerneas, Mega Salamence,(AC) and Marshadow are ideal teammates,(AC) since they can break through defensive cores by spamming strong attacks to worn and wear down Naganadel's checks, while Naganadel can take on some of their checks.
GP 1/1
