RU RU: Choice Band Passimian: [QC: 1/1] [GP 1/1]

Passimian @ Choice Band
Ability: Defiant
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Close Combat
- Knock Off
- U-turn
- Gunk Shot
Although not RU by usage, Passimian's great offensive stats in conjunction with its stellar movepool and access to Defiant make it a great offensive pivoting option in the RU metagame. Passimian can hit a significant majority of the metagame such as Registeel, Florges, and Metagross with coverage moves like Close Combat, Gunk Shot, and Knock Off. With U-turn, it can chip switch-ins such as Cresselia and Slowbro and switch to a teammate that can handle it better, like Shaymin and Roserade. Passimian is also susceptible to being choice locked, which Fairy-types such as Gardevior and Florges can take advantage of, meaning Salazzle a great partner due to its ability to set up on the aforementioned Fairy-Types.
