Summary of Changes: +20 HP, +10 Defense, +10 Special Defense
While its new typing cancels the no weaknesses aspect by giving it a Psychic weakness, Levitate covers the 4x Ground weakness on defensive sets and the new STAB gives it some edge on offensive sets. Strong Jaw boosts coverage moves like the elemental fangs and Crunch, but it's mostly there for flavor, and Sheer Force buffs important moves like Thunder, Gunk Shot and Flamethrower.

Beartic is made to excel in weather teams with a really high boosted speed, good attack and a solid STAB combination, but it could also see some use as a wallbreaker with Tough Claws and Choice Scarf. Its defensive stats leave much to be desired, though, and its type combination is quite bad defensively, so it's definitely a glass cannon.

Stoutland is a potent Sand sweeper and Choice Band wallbreaker. Its high bulk for an offensive mon allows it to handle punishment and retaliate in kind.

Two things about Garbodor have always bothered me: it doesn't get Poison Jab, and it has no form of recovery despite being literal garbage. I mean there's no way that it can't heal itself by absorbing nearby trash. Of course, neither of those would be problems with my Optimized Garbodor. It even sports the always-useful Regenerator for AV sets or (Toxic) Spikes stacking sets. Great new Steel typing gives it all the great resistances that come with it. Has to watch out for Ground-types, as their STAB moves utterly destroy it no matter how much bulk it's packing.​

Summary of Changes: +10 SpA, +30 Spe

Drain Shock - Electric-type Leech Life

Eelektross can abuse Triage with Leech Life, Parabolic Charge, Drain Punch, Giga Drain, and its new signature move Drain Shock. Coil is a good set up move for it, boosting its attack while making it more difficult to take down physically. It doesn't get actual reliable recovery, however, so it is dependent on damaging its opponent to sustain itself.

Added Moves: Drain Punch, Ice Shard, Liquidation, U-turn
Summary of Changes: +40 Spe

Beartic abuses either hail or rain with its high attack stat that can be boosted with Swords Dance. It gains Ice Shard for STAB priority and Liquidation which gets boosted in the rain and helps against Fire-types.

Added Moves: Stealth Rock, Poison Jab, Earthquake, Earth Power, Rock Slide, Stone Edge, Recover
Summary of Changes: +20 HP, +10 Atk, +15 Def, +15 SpD

Garbodor's bulk gets increased, and it can now threaten grounded Steel-types and Poison-types with Earthquake. It also gets Recover and Stealth Rock for more utility. Corrosion allows it to Toxic things like Celesteela and Skarmory, which it otherwise can't deal with, while Aftermath punishes contact attackers.

Stoutland gains Quick Attack for priority, it already had three good abilities, and its attack stat is boosted further.​

Competitive: I know a lot of these Dusknoir submissions are either going to be Ghost-Fighting or Ghost-Dark, so I thought, why not both? This Optimized Dusknoir has the defensive utility of the Dark-type and the offensive prowess of the Fighting-type. Drain Punch and Soul Leech make Assault Vest sets very enticing, but Bulk Up and Unaware make a nice combo as well. Knock Off provides more utility (why this thing with giant-ass hands didn't already get the move is beyond me) and Superpower is mostly for flavor (but never underestimate the power of Choice Band). All this and more for only a tiny decrease in speed. A pretty good trade-off, if you ask me.​

Competitive: I couldn't resist making these guys counterparts; it was too perfect. Again, great defensive utility of the Electric-type, bringing great resistances to the table in exchange for an increased weakness (which is nullified by one of its new abilities, hint hint). Movepool is already fantastic; all it needed was instant recovery, but I went ahead and threw in Rapid Spin for even more role compression. Calm Mind is fun but unlike Noir no Unaware to truly abuse it. It takes a small hit in both defenses, but the HP increase balances it out.​

Ghost/Fighting Dusknoir is a cliche at this point, but it's a fitting type combination that's unseen outside of Ubers. Its STABs give it perfect coverage and its stat changes focus on Dusknoir's biggest weakness, its low HP stat for a tank. Intimidate makes it even better defensively and Iron Fist gives it some extra strength. The new Ghost-type moves may seem like odd choices, but Spirit Shackle fits with its grim reaper theme and, while Shadow Bone doesn't exactly fit Dusknoir, it certainly fits Duskull.

Probopass needed more offensive potential, a typing with less crippling weaknesses and more HP to be able to function. While Rock/Electric gives it an additional Grass weakness, it also reduces its Fighting weakness to a more manageable 2x and keeps a Steel neutrality for Magnet Pull shenanigans. Levitate can cover its Ground weakness, making it more effective defensively, and Electric Surge can make it support its team with terrain while also making its new STAB much stronger.

Porygon-Z doesn't need much to be improved. Its abilities and Special Attack were already quite good, but it was way too slow for a Pokémon with basically no bulk and lacked a secondary STAB to use Adaptability with. Normal/Psychic is a rather underrated type combination and Porygon-Z already learns a bunch of Psychic moves, so it makes sense.

Porygon-Z already has a (bad) niche in OU, what it needs is more than one trick up its sleeve. It finally gains serviceable special bulk and a better speed tier, in tandem with Focus Blast which serves as fantastic coverage to hit steels (and tyranitar) who resist it's normal STAB. Sure of which, Techno Blast is much more powerful than Tri Attack and has the gimmick of being a coverage move if Porygon wants to forfeit it's item. Surge Surfer may seem odd given that Porygon lacks electric STAB, but a Nasty Plot set would be able to take advantage of the speed boost as well as boosted thunderbolts.

koista12 as great flavourfully as it is, Techno Blast on your Porygon-Z won't fly, since it makes for an extremely difficult switch in, nearing STABmons Porygon-Z in power.

Grumpig [Optimized]
Abilities:
Thick Fat / Gluttony / Rattled
Stats: 100/65/85/110/130/80 | BST: 570
Added Moves: Slack Off, Nasty Plot, Belly Drum, Power Trick, Dazzling Gleam
Summary of Changes: +20 to all stats except Spe
Competitive: With access to the ability Rattled, Grumpig could fulfill a yet-to-be-seen niche: a wall that takes advantages of its weaknesses by boosting its Speed. This allows it to throw off fast Toxics or T-waves, or it can run a fast but still bulky Nasty Plot set that takes advantage of U-turn pivots and stray Foul Plays. Its decent physical bulk and great Special bulk ensure that it will take plenty of super-effective hits. Slack Off is there for recovery, and Gleam just helps it deal with Dark-types. Thick Fat gives it two extra resistances if Rattled isn’t your thing, and Power Trick+Belly Drum+Gluttony is a huge meme.​

: Intimidate / Strong Jaw / Moxie (HA)
Stats: 80 HP / 110 Atk / 85 Def / 60 SpA / 75 SpD / 90 Spe | BST: 500
Added Moves: Psychic Fangs, Swords Dance, Superpower, Parting Shot, U-turn
Summary of Changes: +10 HP, +20 Atk, +15 Def, +15 SpD, +20 Spe

Mightyena is a Swords Dance sweeper, with Intimidate weakening physical threats to provide a chance to set up, Strong Jaw boosting its Crunch and its coverage moves, and Moxie allowing it to snowball.

Abilities
: Thick Fat / Magic Guard / Gluttony (HA)
Stats: 100 HP / 45 Atk / 75 Def / 100 SpA / 130 SpD / 80 Spe | BST: 530
Added Moves: Earth Power, Stealth Rock, Slack Off
Summary of Changes: +20 HP, +10 Def, +10 SpA, +20 SpD

Grumpig gains a Ground typing for a useful secondary STAB and makes Thick Fat a more enticing ability to use. Its bulk was increased considerably, especially its special bulk. Slack Off gives it the reliable recovery it always wanted, and now it can set Stealth Rock too.

Hariyama can run Flame Orb with Guts to become a powerful bulky attacker, now with Drain Punch and Recover for recovery.

Abilities
: Sand Veil / Sand Rush / Water Absorb (HA)
Stats: 70 HP / 120 Atk / 70 Def / 120 SpA / 70 SpD / 65 Spe | BST: 515
Added Moves: Power Whip, Wood Hammer, Leaf Blade, Knock Off, Pursuit, Throat Chop, Power Trip, Memento
Summary of Changes: +5 Atk, +10 Def, +5 SpA, +10 SpD, +10 Spe
