PU Oricorio Pa'u

[OVERVIEW]

Oricorio-P is largely outclassed by other Psychic-types in the PU tier like Musharna and Jynx, but mainly Mesprit. Mesprit has much more utility with its access to Stealth Rock, ability to run a better Calm Mind set due to better coverage, and lack of weakness to Stealth Rock. Oricorio-P's Psychic / Flying typing also leaves it very vulnerable to many common types like Ice, Dark, Rock, and Electric. However, Oricorio-P does have the ability to be a Taunt user with reliable recovery, though this is done better by Oricorio-G and Oricorio-E since they have much better offensive and defensive typings.

This set acts as a bulky stallbreaker with the use of Taunt and Calm Mind. However, this role is also done by Oricorio-G and Oricorio-E, which are much more viable than Oricorio-P due to their better offensive and defensive typings, especially with Oricorio-G having the ability to spinblock.

[OVERVIEW]
Oricorio-P is largely outclassed by other Psychic-types in the PU tier like Grumpig, Musharna, and Jynx, but mainly Mesprit (you should really be emphasizing mesprit and other oricorios if anything. remove grumpig too, mon is bad). Almost everything that Oricorio-P does is done better by another Psychic-type. Mesprit has much more utility with its access to Stealth Rock, the ability to run a better Calm Mind set (how come?), and a lack of weakness to Stealth Rock. Grumpig is a much better Taunt user (see above), Mr. Mime has better dual STAB and access to Focus Blast for hitting Steel- and Dark-types making it a better Choice item user (choice mime is honestly pretty questionable in viability) However, Oricorio-P does have the ability to be a Taunt user with reliable recovery, though this is done better by Oricorio-G and Oricorio-E for their better typing (see top)

(talk about how psychic flying is a really bad typing since its weak to a bunch of prominent attacking types)

This set acts as a bulky stallbreaker with the use of Taunt and Calm Mind. However, this role is also done by the other Oricorio forms which are all much more viable than Oricorio-P. (reiterate their better typings and what they can do for them, ori-g being able to spinblock for instance)

Oricorio-P is largely outclassed by other Psychic-types in the PU tier like Musharna and Jynx, but mainly Mesprit. Almost everything that Oricorio-P does is done better by another Psychic-type (this is a repeat of the previous sentence). Mesprit has much more utility with its access to Stealth Rock, the ability to run a better Calm Mind set due to better coverage, and a lack of weakness to Stealth Rock. Oricorio-P's Psychic and Flying typing also leaves it very vulnerable to many common types like Ice, Dark, Rock, and Electric. However, Oricorio-P does have the ability to be a Taunt user with reliable recovery, though this is done better by Oricorio-G and Oricorio-E since their typings don't overlap with Mesprit (they just have better defensive typings overall so specify that).

[SET]
name: Bad Mesprit
move 1: Calm Mind
move 2: Hurricane
move 3: Taunt / Hidden Power Fighting (originally wanted ground but dealing w/ hail mons seems more practical)
move 4: Roost
item: Flyinium Z
ability: Dancer
nature: Timid
evs: 252 HP / 168 Def / 88 Spe (make this max hp and speed)

This set acts as a bulky stallbreaker with the use of Taunt and Calm Mind. However, this role is also done by the other Oricorio forms (specify pom and sensu, don't give any implication that baile is viable) which are all much more viable than Oricorio-P due to their better offensive and defensive typings, especially with Oricorio-G having the ability to spinblock.
