[SET COMMENTS]

<p>This set lets Rhyhorn utilize its relatively high Attack stat to sweep. Earthquake is a good STAB move, and, along with the Life Orb boost, can deal heavy damage to a large number of Pokemon in the tier, including Mienfoo, Scraggy, and Staryu. Rock Blast is a good move to have due to its ability to hit multiple times, allowing Rhyhorn to deal damage to pesky Substitute users such as Misdreavus and Murkrow. In fact, in addition to 2HKOing Misdreavus, Rhyhorn OHKOes all Murkrow with Rock Blast, making it an effective counter to Murkrow. Aqua Tail 2HKOes Hippopotas and OHKOes Drilbur, Numel, and other Rhyhorn, although these same Pokemon can be taken down by Earthquake as well. Aqua Tail also OHKOes Magnemite with the help of Stealth Rock, and is generally a better move than Earthquake as Magnemite might have Magnet Rise or an Air Balloon; alternatively, Fire Fang hits Bronzor hard. Lastly, Megahorn helps Rhyhorn deal with Bronzor and Slowpoke.</p>

[ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

<p>The EVs maximize Attack, provide high amounts of bulk, and add an extra point in Speed. There is no real reason to give Rhyhorn extra Speed as it won't outrun anything of note; therefore, an Adamant nature is used instead of a Jolly one. A Choice Band can be used as it does not require Rhyhorn take recoil damage, but as it locks Rhyhorn into only one move, it is an inferior option. This set can also be used in Trick Room conditions, but make sure to use a Relaxed or Brave nature and 0 Speed EVs and IVs if you do so. Stone Edge's high critical hit rate can come in handy, but its imperfect accuracy allows Substitute Pokemon to run riot. Superpower can be utilized to defeat Scraggy.</p>

<p>In general, Pokemon that can set up Stealth Rock make good teammates, as they help Rhyhorn convert a few 2HKOs to OHKOs against Pokemon such as Mienfoo. Bronzor, Hippopotas, and Dwebble make decent teammates due to their ability to set up Stealth Rock. Grass-types such as Ferroseed and Cottonee as well as Fighting-types such as Scraggy wreck Rhyhorn. Gastly is a good check to both Fighting-types and Cottonee, making it a viable teammate. Chinchou is another great teammate due to its ability to deal with most Water-types.</p>

You're wrong mate, LO and Choice Band to the same amount of damage to Gligar, 95.65% - 113.04%. Both have 50% chance to OHKO, and having the ability to change moves is much better. Rock Blast also deserves a mention near Stone Edge to screw Substitute users like Murkrow and Misdreavus.

Baltoy is never seen so remove that, mention Slowpoke instead, it takes a solid 74.07% minimum for Megahorn. Stress more that the last slot depends on what your team struggles against more; Bronzor or Psychic-types.

Defensive Gligar can still defeat this set due to Life Orb recoil now. You have to Aqua Tail it on the switch-in in order to defeat it. It also checks Misdreavus quite nicely; unboosted Eviolite HP Fighting tops at 92.3%, whereas Stone Edge strips 72.72% minimum of its health. Murkrow should also be mentioned as one of the Pokemons that are countered by this set. Nothing really beats this set but good prediction with the right Pokemon, looks good man!

I added CB to AC, I guess it does make sense to have LO, since switching moves is very beneficial. Added Rock Blast as a slash. Fixed the Baltoy mentions. Mentioned the Aqua Tail on switch-in. Talked about Misdreavus and Murkrow

Thanks for the feedback

So far it is starting to look better but I see no viable reason to run Stone Edge when the only Murkrow that is going to be staying in on you will Prankster Substitute until you miss. Rock Blast simply is the better option. Also please hold off work on this at all until we get the results back from the suspect vote.

Okay. I changed SE to Rock Blast. With Gligar banned, I'm starting to question the need of Aqua Tail. I added a few more Pokemon that are affected by Aqua Tail. Despite it seeming redundant with the presence of EQ, I think with Pokemon like Magnemite, I think it is a good alternative.
 
with Gligar gone, the only real reason why you would use Aqua Tail is to hit Hippopotas, who is hit almost as hard by Earthquake anyways. If this differentiates a 2HKO from a 3HKO then keep Aqua Tail as a front slash with Fire Fang behind it then put Megahorn as the lone option in the fourth slot.

The on-site set also utilizes Life Orb, so "All Out Attacker" would be a perhaps more appropriate name.

<RayJay> it's probably as good as rhyhorn's gonna get

Stamp I guess

Earthquake is a good STAB move, and along with the boost from the Life Orb, it can deal heavy damage to a large number of Pokemon in the tier. Rock Blast is a good move to have due to its 33.33% chance of hitting Pokemon several times, allowing it to do greater amounts of damage. Rock Blast allows Rhyhorn to deal damage to pesky Substitute users, such as Murkrow and Misdreavus. Rhyhorn 2HKOes Misdreavus with Rock Blast.

Aqua Tail allows Rhyhorn to OHKO Diglett, other Rhyhorn, Drilbur, and Numel; although the same Pokemon can be affected by Earthquake. Aqua Tail can be used to OHKO Magnemite with the help of Stealth Rock, and is generally a better move than Earthquake due to the possibility of Magnemite having Magnet Rise, or carrying an Air Balloon. It also 2HKOes Hippopotas. Fire Fang is another option, as it is a decent move that allows Rhyhorn to hit Bronzor. Megahorn helps Rhyhorn deal with Bronzor and Slowpoke, dealing copious amounts of damage to both.</p>

<p>The current EVs are doctored to maximise attack, provide high amounts of bulk and add an extra point in Speed. There is no real reason to add extra Speed to Rhyhorn as it won't outspeed anything, therefore an Adamant nature is used instead of a Jolly one. Choice Band can be used instead of Life Orb as it prevents Rhyhorn from taking recoil damage; although forcing Rhyhorn to use only one move is what prevents it from being the primary option. This set can also be used in Trick Room conditions if you run a Relaxed Brave nature with zero Speed EVs and IVs. Stone Edge is a move that can be used because its 12.5% chance of getting a critical hit can come handy, although its chances of missing allow Substitute Pokemon to run riot. Superpower is another alternative that can be utilized to defeat Scraggy.
