[OVERVIEW]
Water
========

Dual screens from Rotom-W enable non-rain hyper offense Water teams, featuring dangerous setup sweepers such as Mega Gyarados and Manaphy, to become viable.

[SET COMMENTS]
Reflect allows Rotom-W's teammates to better take on physical threats such as Mega Gallade and Dragonite, while Light Screen allows them to take on fearsome special wallbreakers such as Latios and Landorus. Thunder Wave halts faster threats such as Nasty Plot Deoxys-S and Manaphy from sweeping the team. Volt Switch allows Rotom-W to bring in teammates to take advantage of limited dual screens turns. The EV investment allows Rotom-W to always survive Choice Specs Latios's Draco Meteor and almost always survive Choice Band Dragonite's Outrage. 0 Speed IVs alongside a Relaxed nature allow Rotom-W to pivot with Volt Switch after the opposing Rotom-W, allowing it to keep momentum. Manaphy and Mega Gyarados are the two prominent setup sweepers on hyper offense Water teams due to their natural bulk and strong setup moves; they can easily turn the tides of a game behind dual screens. Mega Gyarados is particularly helpful in the Psychic and Flying matchups, while Manaphy can take on opposing Water teams with ease due to Energy Ball. Keldeo is a phenomenal special wallbreaker that can break through Pokemon such as Ferrothorn and Hydreigon, which threaten Rotom-W.

Adjust the EV spread to have enough Special Defense to live a Draco Meteor from Choice Specs Latios and reflect the change in set comments. Consider this QC 2/2 after implementing.
