Zizalith (Tyrantrum) because Bewear is basically always used as the primary pivot into it to see the set compared to other mons where stuff like Donhpan (Lycanroc) is pivoted in much before for example

Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk

It has also Synthesisfor its longevity against Rotom-Mow, but Z-Dream Eater will do the trick,
when Roserade tries to come in on Rotom-Mow: 252 SpA Rotom-Mow Shattered Psyche (180 BP) vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Roserade: 324-382 (124.1 - 146.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Diancie @ Life Orb
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Rock Polish
- Moonblast
- Earth Power
- Psyshock

Normally Roserade can swap in on anything from standard diancie and threaten to KO in response. With this set, you can use the switch as an opportunity to set up, and then outspeed/KO with psyshock. With the speed boost, diancie can actually beat a lot of stuff you wouldn't expect it to, including mblastoise, virizion and necrozma.

252+ SpA Life Orb Diancie Psyshock vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Roserade: 294-348 (112.6 - 133.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

252+ SpA Life Orb Diancie Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Blastoise-Mega: 165-195 (55.1 - 65.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
252+ SpA Life Orb Diancie Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Virizion: 296-351 (91.6 - 108.6%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock
252+ SpA Life Orb Diancie Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Necrozma: 203-239 (60.5 - 71.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock

Flower Bouqet



Florges (F) @ Choice Specs
Ability: Flower Veil
EVs: 112 HP / 252 SpA / 144 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Moonblast
- Energy Ball
- Psychic
- Hidden Power [Fire]/Hidden Power [Ground]

Not gonna take credit for the set because Snow (change back to dbw) brought this set up. I have used it, however, and I very much like it. Specs Florg is arguably the most unexpected set in RU and it can do heavy damage to the mons like roserade (okho), registeel, metagross (outspeeds offensive rocks and 2hkos), dragalge (outspeeds and 2hkos), escavalier (ohkos band), etc.. that otherwise love the opportunity to switch into the general cleric set and set hazards or fire off strong stabs. 112 Spa with specs has some very serious firepower and Florg has the movepool to smack every mon in the tier very, very hard, and net consistent KOs. HP ground can also be ran if you would rather OHKO salazzle and 2HKO Arcanine rather than beat Escav. It works really well on offensive teams with scarfed heal wishers like shaymin and gardevoir.​

- U-turn
- Bounce


I've personally used this set myself on ladder and have had decent success with it. Usually Roserade (especially Z variants) can comfortably check Tsareena and hit it extremely hard with Sludge Bomb. But Z-Bounce is able to lure it in and OHKO it. This set also lures a lot of other meta relevant mons like Golisopod, Toxicroak, and Virizion.

252+ Atk
(160 BP) vs. 0 HP / 0 Def
: 268-316 (198.5 - 234%) -- guaranteed OHKO
