Wish Pass
Jirachi @ Leftovers
Ability: Serene Grace
Tera Type: Water / Fairy
EVs: 252 HP / 148 SpD / 108 Spe
Calm Nature
- Wish
- Protect
- Body Slam / U-turn
- Psychic

Our best wish passer and top 3 steel in the tier currently. Great special bulk and uses defensive mons to come in and pass Wishes. EV spread lets Jirachi outrun Jolly Breloom and Adamant Slither Wing / Gyarados. Body Slam spreads paralysis while U-turn pivots better. Psychic hits Fighting and Poison types such as Breloom and Fezandipiti.


Barraskewda @ Choice Band
Ability: Swift Swim
Tera Type: Water / Fighting
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature / Adamant Nature
- Liquidation
- Aqua Jet
- Close Combat
- Psychic Fangs

Can be used both in and out of rain. Adamant increases damage and outspeeds positive natured base 115 speed as well as non-fully invested Cyclizar. Jolly outspeeds max speed Cyclizar and ties against opposing Barraskewda. Liquidation as STAB of choice, Aqua Jet for a priority, Close Combat hits neutral targets such as Volcanion the hardest and nails Empoleon, Psychic Fangs hits Amoonguss, Vileplume and Chesnaught. Flip Turn as an option. (not sure whether to slash it and where to slash it)
