Ninetales @ Firium Z
Ability: Drought
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Nasty Plot
- Fire Blast
- Solar Beam
- Hidden Power Electric

At +2 Ninetales has a chance to OHKO after Stealth Rocks Mantine with Hidden Power Electric and Ninetales can set-up infront of Mantine due to Drought lowering the Scald damage and Air Slash won't do too much to Ninetales as Ninetales
has a good bulk with 100 special defense. Mantine might try to Defog or to wear down Ninetales with Scald so it can't come in so easily in the long run, but HP Elcetric kills it after a +2 due to NP.

Calcs:

+2 252 SpA Ninetales Hidden Power Electric vs. 252 HP / 120+ SpD Mantine: 240-284 (64.1 - 75.9%) -- 6.3% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
+2 252 SpA Ninetales Fire Blast vs. 252 HP / 120+ SpD Mantine in Sun: 122-144 (32.6 - 38.5%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
+2 252 SpA Ninetales Solar Beam vs. 252 HP / 120+ SpD Mantine: 119-140 (31.8 - 37.4%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
+2 252 SpA Ninetales Hidden Power Electric vs. 252 HP / 120+ SpD Mantine: 240-284 (64.1 - 75.9%) -- 6.3% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery

0 SpA Mantine Scald vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Ninetales in Sun: 68-84 (23.6 - 29.2%) -- 96.2% chance to 3HKO after Stealth Rock
0 SpA Mantine Air Slash vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Ninetales: 67-81 (23.3 - 28.2%) -- 81.6% chance to 3HKO after Stealth Rock

Machamp @ Assault Vest
Ability: Guts
EVs: 172 HP / 252 Atk / 84 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Thunder Punch
- Close Combat
- Bullet Punch
- Earthquake

I finally get to use the GOAT. Here it is the undisputed best thing in the whole tier. This muscle milk set literally doesnt care about anything besides like cress and necrozma in RU. Upon seeing that it's not guts orb your opponent running that bad defogger Mantine will recognize that the worst threat is likely a 1 trick knock off that it can heal off and then sit on champ (i mean heck they're running mantine, they probably think champs best set is dynamicpunch anyway). Sike, as we have the kill RU champion set. Tpunch is obviously an ohko on mantine that lets champ also solo mandibuzz, mblast, golisopod, and milotic without taking unnecessary damage from spdef drops in CC. Eq+bullet punch lets it beat scarf gard and diancie 1v1, as well as another option for metagross, and wins against dragalge. This set has probably netted me more KOs than anything in RU this gen.​

This is not a lure because Wild Charge is like Arcanines best coverage move
 
Drapion @ Electrium Z
Ability: Sniper
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Poison Jab
- Knock Off
- Thunder Fang​

I think this lure can work, because Drapion is usually use with Z Aqua Tail so he can surprise Mantine.

Thunderbolt is standard on nidoqueen despite any trends... certainly not a lure whatsoever. AV Machamp with thunder punch is also not a lure since it is commonly used on guts assault vest champ to do damage to blastoise mega to avoid defense drops and it hits golisopod so... for this tie and to decide a winner for an actual lure we gonna crown Garance as the winner of this week (altho thunder fang drapion... gets it hit golisopod too, will let it slide for this one)

Lets lure something else, shall we? Surprise the next with a funny kill or weaken it enough for something to finish it off.

Next mon to lure is...


Golisopod @ Insect Plate
Ability: Emergency Exit
EVs: 168 HP / 252 Atk / 88 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Aqua Jet
- Leech Life
- First Impression
- Liquidation / Spikes​

This one can be a fun one to lure. Sluggish but super lucky and with one of the most threatening priority moves the whole tier and it is a good switch-in to plenty of things so how would you lure it? Look deep into movesets of the mons that is generally stop and you will see plenty of surprises. Have fun!

Donphan @ Rockium Z
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 244 HP / 252 Atk / 12 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Head Smash
- Rapid Spin
- Earthquake
- Ice Shard
Rockium Z Donphan is an amazing lure to Golisopod. Golisopod doesn't give two hoots about the standard Donphan set of Earthquake / Knock Off / Rapid Spin / Ice Shard and can easily switch in on it and liquidate it to death. However, with Rockium Z Headsmash, Donphan will always OHKO Golisopod. The 12 Spe EV's on Donphan allows it to outspeed Golisopod when it's packing just 88 speed.

252+ Atk Donphan Continental Crush (200 BP) vs. 168 HP / 0 Def Golisopod: 338-398 (101.5 - 119.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO

reserving elec z rocks meta

CHROMETYPE (Metagross) @ Electrium Z
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Meteor Mash
- Stealth Rock
- Thunder Punch
- Earthquake

most people see sr meta and assume it's carrying one of toxic, pursuit or boom in its last slot, making it a pretty free switchin for golis that are fine with trading should it happen to be explosion. elec z takes advantage of that, blowing away any cocky pods that try to switch in and forcing it out from full hp at worst and ohkoing after rocks damage/some chip at best. it also works to blast slowbro and catch defog mandi/blastoise off guard, allowing you to keep your sr up more effectively vs them.

252+ Atk Metagross Gigavolt Havoc (140 BP) vs. 168 HP / 0 Def Golisopod: 258-304 (77.4 - 91.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock

Reserving Diancie

Diancie @ Leftovers
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 252 HP / 244 SpD / 12 Spe
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Stealth Rock
- Moonblast
- Power Gem
- Toxic

Golisopod has 88EVs in speed which allow him to outspeed Diancie and kill him with a Liquidation :
252+ Atk Choice Band Golisopod Liquidation vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Diancie: 312-368 (102.6 - 121%) -- guaranteed OHKO
But with this Diancie's invest, Diancie now outspeed and destroy Golisopod with Power Gem :
0 SpA Diancie Power Gem vs. 168 HP / 0 SpD Golisopod: 188-224 (56.4 - 67.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
With one hit, Emergency exit switch out Golisopod and made him useless.

Simple. Effective.

Slowbro @ Electrium Z
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Scald
- Ice Beam
- Zap Cannon
- Slack Off


Simple lure, besides possible Scald burns Golisopod won't fear anything from Slowbro at all as its coverage options are Ice Beam, which isn't super effective and Psyshock, which also won't do enough damage. But Z-Zap Cannon does the trick and has a Chance to OHKO Golisopod without Stealth Rocks up.

Calc: 4 SpA Slowbro Gigavolt Havoc (190 BP) vs. 168 HP / 0 SpD Golisopod: 300-354 (90 - 106.3%) -- 37.5% chance to OHKO
