EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk

This is a check as it can come in on abomasnow with the ability to revenge, kill or set up on it.

Articuno as a Check


Articuno @ Leftovers
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Freeze-Dry

None of Abomasnow's attacks come close to a OHKO, while Hurricane always OHKOes Abomasnow. Only a check, as Blizzard can 2HKO or even OHKO if Stealth Rock is up.

Counter: (still slightly unsure about this but w/e)


Eelektross @ Assault Vest
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpA
Modest Nature
- Volt Switch
- Giga Drain
- Knock Off
- Flamethrower

Blizzard's only a 3HKO without Rocks damage, and doesn't even have a solid chance to 2HKO with them up. Meanwhile, it gets OHKOd by Flamethrower.
252 SpA Life Orb Abomasnow Blizzard vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Assault Vest Eelektross: 148-175 (39.5 - 46.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252 SpA Life Orb Abomasnow Blizzard vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Assault Vest Eelektross: 148-175 (39.5 - 46.7%) -- 34.8% chance to 2HKO after Stealth Rock
252+ SpA Eelektross Flamethrower vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Abomasnow: 428-504 (133.3 - 157%) -- guaranteed OHKO
 
Miltank as a counter


Miltank (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Thick Fat
EVs: 252 HP / 232 SpD / 24 Spe
Careful Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Toxic
- Body Slam
- Milk Drink

SpDef Miltank isn't something you see often but here's a situation where it could be useful. It naturally resists Abomasnow's Ice STAB and takes negligible damage from its other moves. It can LO + Toxic stall it and also set up Stealth Rock to punish it for switching out. Additionally, it can play mind games with it before revealing its ability (Sap Sipper or Thick Fat) and possibly score a free Toxic or Stealth Rock.

252 SpA Life Orb Abomasnow Giga Drain vs. 252 HP / 232+ SpD Miltank: 117-138 (29.6 - 35%)

252 SpA Life Orb Abomasnow Blizzard vs. 252 HP / 232+ SpD Thick Fat Miltank: 87-103 (22 - 26.1%)

4 Atk Life Orb Abomasnow Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Miltank: 84-100 (21.3 - 25.3%)

Magmortar @ Assault Vest
Ability: Vital Spirit
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Flamethrower
- Thunderbolt
- Focus Blast
- Hidden Power [Grass]

Magmortar doesn't get OHKO'ed by Abomasnow's Earthquake and can easily OHKO it with Flamethrower.

252+ SpA Magmortar Flamethrower vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Abomasnow: 720-852 (224.2 - 265.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO

252+ SpA Magmortar Focus Blast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Abomasnow: 320-378 (99.6 - 117.7%) -- 93.8% chance to OHKO

4 Atk Life Orb Abomasnow Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Magmortar: 244-289 (68.9 - 81.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

New year, new drops! here's the next victim and new addition to the tier.



Spiritomb @ Leftovers
Ability: Infiltrator
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD
Bold Nature
- Calm Mind
- Dark Pulse
- Rest
- Sleep Talk
 
This one is really obvious, but I love Stoutland and have been enjoying him immensely more now that 'tomb is around. Stoutland as a Counter because it can threaten out or switch-in freely and KO with Superpower while also absorbing status (from non CRO sets) and KO'ing with Façade



Stoutland @ Choice Band
Ability: Scrappy
Happiness: 0
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Superpower
- Play Rough
- Facade
- Frustration

Some calcs showing that he can switch in freely
+1 0- SpA Black Glasses Spiritomb Dark Pulse vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Stoutland: 142-168 (37.9 - 44.9%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

252+ Atk Choice Band Stoutland Superpower vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Spiritomb: 260-308 (85.8 - 101.6%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery
252+ Atk Choice Band Stoutland Facade (140 BP) vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Spiritomb: 229-270 (75.5 - 89.1%) -- 12.5% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery

Stoutland is also faster than Spiritomb, even with no speed investment, so it can do whatever it wants once it's in.

Raticate-Alola @ Darkinium Z
Ability: Hustle
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Double-Edge
- Knock Off
- Sucker Punch

While being a really good late-game wincon in a similar vein as Type:Null, CroTomb's biggest weakness lies in it only being able to use one attacking move which means it can be outright walled by a handful of Pokémon. I decided to choose Alolan Raticate because it can threaten to break through with a boosted BHE and you suddenly have something at +2 with priority you're forced to fight against.

0 SpA Spiritomb Dark Pulse vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Raticate-Alola: 48-57 (16.4 - 19.5%) -- possible 6HKO

+1 0 SpA Spiritomb Dark Pulse vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Raticate-Alola: 72-86 (24.7 - 29.5%) -- 100% chance to 4HKO

+3 0 SpA Spiritomb Dark Pulse vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Raticate-Alola: 120-142 (41.2 - 48.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

+6 0 SpA Spiritomb Dark Pulse vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Raticate-Alola: 192-227 (65.9 - 78%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

+2 252+ Atk Hustle Raticate-Alola Black Hole Eclipse (140 BP) vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Spiritomb: 346-408 (114.1 - 134.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO


By the way, this is a counter.
 
Granbull as a counter



Granbull @ Choice Band
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 212 HP / 252 Atk / 44 Spe
Adamant nature
- Play Rough
- Earthquake
- Fire punch
- Close Combat

Survives any attack and 1HKOes with Play Rough.

Calcs:

+1 0 SpA Spiritomb Dark Pulse vs 212 HP / 0 SpD Granbull: 91-108 (24.3%-28.8%) --99.1% chance to 4HKO
252+ Atk Choice Band Granbull Play Rough vs 252 HP / 252+ Def Spiritomb: 312-368 (102.6%- 121%) guaranteed OHKO.

Can't post sprites at the moment on my phone.

Where de Subs At? (Togetic) @ Eviolite
Ability: Super Luck
EVs: 248 HP / 80 SpA / 180 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Nasty Plot
- Encore
- Roost
- Dazzling Gleam

I'm posting togetic as a Check so I can win. I really hope this is self explanatory as to why Togetic checks that tomb set but I'll go into a bit of detail. Togetic is able to set up and take advantage of Spiritomb with Encore. While Spiritomb is locked into a move Toge can set up its Nasty Plots and KO Spiritomb with Dazzling Gleam.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that its an actual Hard Counter but we can forget that part

Clefairy @ Eviolite
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
- Calm Mind
- Soft-Boiled
- Moonblast
- Thunder Wave

cm clef is a counter bc tomb needs to get to +6 in order to even have an 11% chance of 2HKOing it or smth.
+6 0 SpA Spiritomb Dark Pulse vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Eviolite Clefairy: 151-178 (43.8 - 51.7%) -- 10.9% chance to 2HKO, snack
