Scraggy @ Eviolite / Berry Juice
Ability: Moxie
Level: 5
EVs: 36 HP / 236 Atk / 212 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Knock Off
- Drain Punch
- Zen Headbutt / Poison Jab

Scraggy's niche lies on its ability to act as a reliable setup sweeper thanks to Dragon Dance and Moxie, which allow it to function as a scary wincon and late-game cleaner if potential threats are removed. Scraggy's coverage can be either Poison Jab to hit Fairy-types or Zen Headbutt to hit Fighting- and Poison-types. It can also choose between decent bulk with Eviolite and longevity with Berry Juice. Entry hazard setters such as Ferroseed and Onix provide Stealth Rock and Spikes, which benefit Scraggy's wallbreaking capabilities. Scraggy appreciates support provided by screen setters such as Alolan Vulpix and Memento users such as Diglett, which can also remove Pokemon that can threaten Scraggy and give it more opportunities to set up. Lastly, a Pokemon that blanket checks threats to Scraggy such as Pawniard or Snubbull fits for a good teammate, with the former one checking Vullaby, Abra, and Gastly and the latter one dealing with Fighting-types.

Just a nitpick but can we switch the slashes for DD and the coverage option, it looks prettier when DD is first.

We talk a lot about what threatens Scraggy in this paragraph. Can we change that to things that help it effectively sweep?

The first few sentences are fine then it should go...
Hazard setters
Memento/Screens/Status users (pick 1/2 of those)
Something that blanket checks a lot of different things that threaten Scraggy (Pawniard, Snubbull, and Magnemite come to mind).

Let me know when you make these changes and I'll give it a QC.
