Cresselia

Cresselia @ Leftovers
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 112 Def / 144 Spe
Bold Nature
- Moonlight
- Psyshock
- Ice Beam
- Toxic

Cresselia is a counter to Nidoqueen as it can come in consistently on all Attacks as Erath Power weon't do anything as Cresselias Ability Levitate prevents it from getting hit by it.
Ice Beam also does only ver little and Cresselia has Moonlight to easily Recovers the damage off. Also Cresselia can still come in consistently into Nidoqueen
when Cress is poisoned due to Moonlight and its Attack Psyshock safely 2HKOs Nidoqueen. Cresselia can threaten out Nidoqueen in any case and heavily threatens it with its STAB Attacks.

Calcs:
Nidoqueen Earth Power vs. Levitate Cresselia: 0-0 (0 - 0%) -- aim for the horn next time
252 SpA Life Orb Sheer Force Nidoqueen Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Cresselia: 92-109 (20.7 - 24.5%) -- possible 5HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery

0 SpA Cresselia Psyshock vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Nidoqueen: 152-182 (47.3 - 56.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
0 SpA Cresselia Ice Beam vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Nidoqueen: 116-138 (36.1 - 42.9%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Stealth Rock

Reserving Bronzong



Bronzong @ Leftovers
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Sassy Nature
IVs: 0 Spe
- Stealth Rock
- Gyro Ball
- Toxic
- Protect / Earthquake

I'm sorry, but for me, Bronzong is the best counter to Nidoqueen. He put Stealth Rock like Nidoqueen, He is immune to Earth Power, the only stab of Nidoqueen in this set and to Toxic. The only damages he can take are from Ice Beam who do to Bronzong between 11.2% and 13%. With the Leftovers recovery, I can affirm that this is the best counter to Nidoqueen.
On a switch, every pokemons can be poisoned, except steel and poison who take, for the majority of them, a super-effective Earth Power, except Bronzong.​

EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Rapid Spin
- Dark Pulse

Blastoise can both spin away nido's rocks and kill it with ice beam. Blastoise is however 2HKOd by life orb sheer force STAB earth power, but its abbility to spin hazards and then kill a weakened nidoqueen or to spin and heavily dent it from full or to outright 2HKO makes blastoise a good CHECK

Araquanid is able to Counter Nidoqueen, as it shrugs off both of Nidoqueen's attacks and OHKOes with Liquidation. It can even bounce back Stealth Rock with Magic Coat, and set up Sticky Web in Nidoqueen's face.

Calcs:

252 SpA Life Orb Sheer Force Nidoqueen Earth Power vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Araquanid: 68-81 (24.5 - 29.2%) -- 99.7% chance to 4HKO

Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 72 SpD / 184 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Defog
- Heal Bell
- Roost
- Freeze-Dry

Articuno is a hard check to Nidoqueen, as barring Fire Blast, it is able to switch in on all of this sets moves and defog away Stealth Rocks. Thanks to Pressure Articuno is not threatened by Toxic as they have thee same PP after Pressure, because of Pressure Articuno also doesn't let Steealth Rocks up which is vital to many of the stall builds Articuno resides on. With the EV spread Articuno hits 277 speed, outspeeding Nidoqueen, whil the rest of the EV's are dumped into special defense to better tank hits. Articuno also threatens it with a super effective Freeze-Dry

252 SpA Life Orb Sheer Force Nidoqueen Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 72 SpD Articuno: 90-107 (23.4 - 27.8%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery

Ability: Magic Bounce
EVs: 252 Spa / 4 Spd / 252 Spe
IVs: 0 Att
Timid Nature

- Psychic
- Shadow Ball
- Calm Mind

Espeon is an offensive check to Nidoqueen. Espeon specifically loves 3 of the mons in this tier that set spikes and t spikes because thanks to M Bounce they shall be doing no such thing and instead will be getting outsped and KOd by this kitty's Psychic. Nidoqueen is heavily disrupted and stressed by espeon because it has the ability to come in and counter it, as well as bounce its rocks and toxic back without needing to use magic coat. Psychic is a OHKO outright and nidoqueen switching out gives espeon a chance to CM up, meaning that you don't have to cede your momentum with a wall, but instead get the chance to punch holes in teams. Leftovers and Morning Sun make it so espeon can get more than 1 chance to anger the queen even if it comes into an earth power.

Snorlax @ Leftovers
Ability: Thick Fat
EVs: 188 HP / 128 Def / 192 SpD
Careful Nature
- Curse
- Frustration
- Rest
- Earthquake/Sleep Talk​

Snorlax is a great counter to Nidoqueen, being able to come on a EarthPower, thanks to its great Spdef and HP stats, it's, as well, not weaked by Toxic because of Rest. Then Snorlax can easily place his curse on Nidoqueen and u know what's the following. But even if you can't place a Curse because the opposing team has a Lax counter, you can still 2HKO Nidoqueen with an Earthquake, if you play Sleep Talk on Earthquake, Frustration still has a chance to 2HKO but only if Nido is Weakened by the SR damages.

252 SpA Life Orb Sheer Force Nidoqueen Earth Power vs. 188 HP / 192+ SpD Snorlax: 122-146 (24 - 28.7%) -- 48.7% chance to 4HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery

Diancie @ Leftovers
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Sassy Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Moonblast
- Diamond Storm
- Heal Bell

Diancie is a counter to Noivern as it can switchin multiple times with ease into Noiverns STAB Hurricane and the coverage option in Flamethrower. Diancie also can set Rocks on Noivern
as Noivern most likely won't dare to stay in and get hit by a super effective Diamond Storm nor Moonblast. Diancie also has recovery in Leftovers, which makes it hard for Noivern to deal with.
In overall Noivern gets hard countered by Diancie and Diancie serves itself as one of the best switch-ins to Noivern and can act freely infront of it.

Calcs:

252 SpA Noivern Hurricane vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Diancie: 39-47 (12.8 - 15.4%) -- possible 9HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
252 SpA Noivern Flamethrower vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Diancie: 22-26 (7.2 - 8.5%) -- possibly the worst move ever

0 SpA Diancie Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Noivern: 246-290 (79 - 93.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
0 Atk Diancie Diamond Storm vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Noivern: 260-308 (83.6 - 99%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery

Florges @ Leftovers
Ability: Flower Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 120 Def / 136 Spe
Timid Nature
- Defog
- Moonblast
- Synthesis
- Heal Bell

Florges is a nice counter because of its ability to switch into Hurricane pretty nicely while being able to threaten it out with STAB Moonblast.
Neither Hurricane nor any of Noivern's Coverage Options deal enough damage to threaten a 3HKO with Rocks up, thanks to the appreciated Leftovers.
Florges on the other hand has an astounding 100% chance to kill Noivern after one instance of rocks damage and Leftovers recovery, which means it's likely to force out the annoying dragon-bat.
It also boasts the ability to recover its HP with Synthesis, Defog or heal the team's status ailments with Heal Bell on the forced switch out, unless it gets taunted, thus being able to stay healthy throughout the game and supporting the team.

Even the most temerarious battler out there should be wary of the legendary Hurricane-confusion into hurting yourself, which can cause your counter-plans to crumble apart. However, the likelyhood of Noivern 1v1ing Florges is pretty minor so don't worry about that too much.

252 SpA Noivern Hurricane vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Florges: 102-120 (28.3 - 33.3%) -- 0% chance to 3HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
252 SpA Noivern Flamethrower vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Florges: 56-66 (15.5 - 18.3%) -- possible 7HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
252 SpA Noivern Hurricane vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Florges on a critical hit: 153-180 (42.5 - 50%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Leftovers recovery

0 SpA Florges Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Noivern: 270-320 (86.8 - 102.8%) -- 18.8% chance to OHKO after Leftovers recovery
(which will turn into a guaranteed OHKO after rocks+lefties if I didn't mess up my maths)

- Rock Blast/Stone Edge
- Toxic

Rhyperior is a nice counter to Noivern, resisting to its Flying STAB and being able to OHKO it back with Stone Edge (Rock Blast can OHKO with 3 hits only with Stealth Rocks on or a crit lol), he can put a big pressure on the opposing team with his access to SR, Toxic and his powerful double STAB + big Atk, Swords Dance is a nice option but in this case, i would be scared of the Hurriconfuse so I'd rather put Toxic lol.

16+ Atk Rhyperior Rock Blast (3 hits) vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Noivern: 294-348 (94.5 - 111.8%) -- approx. 81.3% chance to OHKO after Leftovers recovery

Gigalith @ Leftovers
Ability: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Stone Edge / Rock Blast
- Earthquake
- Toxic

Gigalith is a great counter to Noivern. He switch on a Hurricane/Flamethrower and take those moves easily. The leftovers increase his bulk and his capacity to counter Noivern. Taunt Gigalith is a pure waste of time because Gigalith can OHKO with Stone Edge, and OHKO with four hits of Rock Blast (if you don't want to be PPStall). With the sandstorm, the leftovers and toxic (even if Noivern have Taunt), Noivern can't win the 1v1.
Your always force Noivern to switch and can put Stealth Rock or Toxic.



252 SpA Noivern Hurricane vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Gigalith in Sand: 41-48 (10.9 - 12.8%) -- possibly the worst move ever

Scarf Goodra is an amazing check to Noivern. Goodra can easily come in on Noivern's flying STAB of hurricane as well as flamethrower and proceed to ohko with its dragon STAB of draco meteor. Goodra also has nice coverage moves, making it a scarfer that can figure its way through a variety of teams.
