Smogon's fantastical fun-guy.
<li>Aromatisse possesses excellent typing in pure Fairy.</li>
<li>It's one of the most physically defensive Fairies with 101/72/89 defenses.</li>
<li>It packs a great utility movepool including Dual Screens, Aromatherapy, Wish, etc.</li>
<li>Aroma Veil provides immunity to Taunt, Torment, Disable, and Encore, which is wonderful for a support Pokemon.</li>
<li>It can pass 203 HP Wishes.</li>
<li>It's incredibly slow. Slower than Slowbro. Yeah, really, it's that slow.</li>
<li>It doesn't have any way to deal with Steel-types.</li>
<li>Aromatisse lacks the incredible special defense of other Fairy-types, such as Florges.</li>
<li>Its stats are nearly a carbon-copy of Clefable and it faces a ton of competition for a teamslot.</li>

- Aromatherapy / Toxic</p>
- Good typing, defenses, and ability for a support
- Provides 203 HP Wishes to support the team
- Aromatherapy protects Aromatisse from Toxic while also supporting the team
- Protect keeps Aromatisse alive when combined with Wish, and can be used with Toxic to stall
- Unlike most supports, it isn't taunt-bait because it's immune!
- STAB Moonblast provides reliable damage
- EVs maximize physical bulk with remainder in SpD, dropping speed to protect against Gyro Ball - Ferrothorn's is 35 BP (16.25 - 19.21%), Forretress is 20 BP.
[Checks and Counters]
- Steel-types. Pokemon like Scizor, Skarmory, Aegislash, Excadrill, or Mawile can easily switch in and set up.
- Poison-types, such as Venusaur, Roserade, and Gengar. They can KO with STAB Sludge Bombs and only fear the odd Psychic attack
- Bulky set-up sweepers in general that don't fear Moonblast (Volcarona, etc)
- Vulnerable to Toxic without Aromatherapy
