This is a way to use the good natural bulk of Necrozma of 97/101/89 + Prism Armor and good offenses to support your teammates with some useful Spe support/control, which is one of the main aspects of the game.
Also, this Necrozma can gain extra turns to attack your opponent's threat more than one time and/or force more switch-outs.
3 attacks allows Necrozma to put some nice pressure even though Power Gem has low base power. Paralysis + Meteor Beam sounds nice in theory, but it requires additional team support and I think that in practice is not worthy enough.
I think that the offensive variant of this set is better than a defensive one because it puts a good amount of pressure.
The item chosen allows Necrozma to switch-in&out repeatedly even if the battlefield is full of hazards, but also Lum Berry is fine if you have another teammate that appreciates the Boots more and you are feared by Toxic.
Keep in mind that this Necrozma is only a cleaner because it doesn't have the power to OHKO from full HP, so hazards and/or Psychic Terrain support is really appreciated (252 SpA Necrozma Photon Geyser vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Toxapex in Psychic Terrain: 308-366 (101.3 - 120.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO).
Also a way to get past Dark and Psychic-types not weak to coverage moves is mandatory.
Donenameless90, your submission is too similar to the banned Weakness Policy Autotomize set, since it's really just an item change (Autotomize and Rock Polish are only marginally different in practice). Please change your set or it will not be included.
