[SET COMMENTS]
One of the few Fairy-types in the RU metagame, Silvally-Fairy is able to act as a potent setup sweeper thanks to its good Speed tier, strong STAB attack, and excellent coverage to beat Steel-types and physical walls. The ability to check Pokemon like Passimian, Virizion, and other Fighting-types while providing good offensive pressure with moves like U-turn and Swords Dance is an amazing attribute that makes this Pokemon a very good pick for offensive and balanced team structures. Work Up boosts Silvally-Fairy's offensive stats, turning it into a very strong setup sweeper. Multi-Attack is an extremely hard-hitting STAB move that, when boosted, is able to deal massive damage to anything weak or neutral to it. Flamethrower allows Silvally-Fairy to break past Steel-types that can become overwhelming for it; 64 Special Attack EVs also allow it to 2HKO specially defensive Steelix after a Work Up boost. Flamethrower also gives Silvally-Fairy a super effective attack against the tier's most common defensive Poison-type, Vileplume. U-turn allows Silvally-Fairy to gain momentum and pivot out of unfavorable matchups to a teammate that can handle the foe more appropriately. Alternatively, Defog allows Silvally-Fairy to act as an offensive entry hazard remover for teams that need role compression, while Surf lets Silvally-Fairy break through some of RU's prominent physical walls, OHKOing Rhydon without any boosts and 2HKOing Mudsdale at +1.

Pokemon like Rotom, Alolan Raichu, and Passimian make really good teammates due to them forming VoltTurn cores alongside Silvally-Fairy. Pokemon that are weak to Fighting-types like Rhydon, Duraludon, Scrafty, Copperajah, and Steelix make amazing partners for Silvally-Fairy due to its ability to handle Fighting-types extremely well; Rhydon is particularly helpful because it can switch into Fire-types like Charizard and Salazzle that can freely switch into Silvally-Fairy. Similarly, Pokemon that are weak to Dark-types like Indeedee, Jellicent, and Alolan Raichu are also good partners for Silvally-Fairy, which can freely switch into Knock Off. However, Silvally-Fairy is less reliable against Pokemon like Drapion. Pokemon like Mudsdale and Passimian are able to handle Steel-types that would otherwise give Silvally-Fairy issues. Vaporeon's cleric and Wish support makes it a great partner for Silvally-Fairy, letting it last longer throughout the battle. Vaporeon also answers Fire-types such as Salazzle and Charizard. Pokémon like Braviary appreciate Silvally-Fairy’s ability to wear down Steel- and Fighting-types with its Flamethrower and Multi-Attack, allowing it to use Brave Bird more frequently.

Silvally-Fairy, one of the few Fairy types in the RU metagame, is able to act as an amazing [i think "amazing" is overselling it, it's pretty good but never 6-0s teams] set-up sweeper in the RU metagame thanks to its good speed tier, strong STAB attack, and excellent coverage to beat Steel-types and physical walls with its decent all around base stats of 95. [people can see its stats in the strategy dex, would provide more ru-specific info] Being able to check Pokemon like Passimian, Virizion, and other fighting types while providing good offensive presence [Weezing checks those mons too, for example, but Silv-Fairy is different because it checks them and then uses them to set up / hit hard / defog / u-turn] is an amazing attribute that makes this Pokemon a very good pick for offensive and balanced team structures. Work Up boosts both Silvally-Fairy's attack and special attack, turning it into a very potent set-up sweeper. Multi Attack is an extremely hard hitting 120 BP STAB move which when boosted is able to deal massive damage to anything weak or neutral to it. Flamethrower allows Silvally-Fairy to break past steel-types that can become overwhelming for it; 64 special attack EVs allow you to 2HKO specially defensive Steelix after a Work Up.[NOTE 1] Flamethrower also give Silvally-Fairy a super effective attack against the tier's most common defensive Poison-type, Vileplume. U-Turn allows Silvally-Fairy to gain momentum and pivot out of unfavorable matchups into a teammate that can handle it more appropriately. Defog allows Silvally-Fairy to act as an offensive hazard remover for teams that need role compression. (if running Surf) Surf lets Silvally-Fairy break through some of RU's prominent physical walls, OHKOing Rhydon without any boosts and 2HKOing Mudsdale at +1.

Pokemon like Rotom, Raichu-Alola, and Passimian, and Lanturn (just 3 examples per category) make really good teammates due to them forming volt-turn cores alongside Silvally-Fairy. Pokemon that are weak to fighting-types like Rhydon, Copperajah, and Steelix make amazing partners for Silvally-Fairy due to it handling fighting-types extremely well; Rhydon is particularly helpful because it can switch into Fire-types like Charizard and Salazzle that can freely switch into Silvally-Fairy. Pokemon that are weak to dark-types like Indeedee, Raichu-Alola, and Xatu are also good partners for Silvally-Fairy, which can freely switch into Knock Off because it cannot lose its item and Knock Off only has 65 base power against it. Xatu is an especially good partner because it serves as a secondary check to fighting types, which can be helpful because Silvally does not have reliable recovery. Pokemon like Rhydon, Mudsdale, Salazzle, Passimian, and Ninetales are able to handle steel-types that would otherwise give Silvally-Fairy issues. [Ninetales, Lazzle, and arguably Rhydon do not switch into the most common steel-type, Steelix. Mudsdale and Passimian work, I'd add Jellicent/Gastrodon or, if that is too passive, Bewear. If u want a fire type in this section do Charizard > Lazzle/Tales since it is a better switch in]. [maybe also add something about fire types here too? snorlax would be a good partner because silv-fairy covers its fighting weakness, esp. if those two are paired with something like Mudsdale or Jellicent that beats steel types).

I don't personally like how you did this teammates section, you chose mons that Silvally-fairy helps (e.g. stuff with a fighting weakness likes silv-fairy, stuff with a dark weakness likes silv-fairy) or mons that help silv-fairy (e.g. stuff that beats steel types). i try to find mons that combine both those roles in my analyses -- that is, they help silv-fairy and silv-fairy helps them. see how i changed the xatu and rhydon sections of that ^. idk that's just my style rather than QC but this may be helpful for future analyses.

+1 64 SpA Silvally-Fairy Flamethrower vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Steelix: 188-222 (53.1 - 62.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
+1 0 SpA Silvally-Fairy Flamethrower vs. 252 HP / 252 SpD Steelix: 192-226 (54.2 - 63.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery

I believe the analysis for Steelix uses an Impish (+Def) nature, meaning that the 64 Special Attack EVs are not necessary to 2HKO specially defensive Steelix using the spread given in that analysis. Perhaps the spread should be rethought.

24 SpAtk EVs lets u guarantee the OHKO on 252/0 Escavalier after rocks. Every other benchmark is way higher. Im not sure what to do on the spread, especially since Escavalier seems likely to leave the tier in a day or two. Perhaps 252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe works.

If running Surf perhaps 200 Atk / 56 SpA / 252 Spe works;
56 SpA Silvally-Fairy Surf vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Eviolite Rhydon: 332-392 (94.5 - 111.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock.

Coincidentally this is a super tiny change, lol.

Any benchmarks without including SR require a lot more EVs. Idrk what to do here so will let QC decide upon a spread.

qc 1/2 :blobthumbsup:


other qcs told me to give this qc 1, but we should prob make some changes for new meta in qc 2. feel free to add anything you think of!

examples of stuff that may be worth adding:
- with drapion in the tier silv-fairy is less of a reliable answer to "dark-types".
- vaporeon makes a great partner to give it recovery and answer fire types
- inteleon is a good partner b/c u-turn + water type to pressure fires, tho it's a bad switch in so i like Vap more as a partner
- silv-fairy's Flamethrower is nice to weaken steels, primarily Steelix, for partners that appreciate steels weakened. examples include braviary [sets with cc can also help to chip lix, but lix being gone = free af brave bird. lix gone/weakened is also huge for subbu mono attacking bird], drapion, duraludon, indeedee, and plenty of others - u can think of other examples of this for sure, doesn't have to be just new mons i just chose a bunch of them by coincidence rofl.
