this is a nice bait set, but unless it gets it's job done early, people are gonna notice real fast that it's not boots, and if it's not boots, theres only so many other things it could be, plus, without boots you're becoming signifigantly worse at what this mon looks to be so good at in the first place, since hazards are gonna wear you down fast even with regenHaving fun trying to optimize Cyclizar. Not 100% sure whether Choice Scarf is the optimal item, but here we go:
Cyclizar @ Choice Scarf
EVs: 236 HP / 20 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty / Timid / Naive Nature
- Shed Tail
- Knock Off
- Rapid Spin / U-turn
- Draco Meteor
Scared witless of Dragapult deciding to try to snipe the poor Sub recipient? Suspect Pult will think it outspeeds Cyclizar and stay in? Absolutely smash that Pult apart (preferably on Turn 1) and never worry about that Dragon Darts-using Infiltrator ruining your plans again:
20 SpA Cyclizar Draco Meteor vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Dragapult: 318-374 (100.3 - 117.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO
Bonus points for also OHKOing opposing Cyclizar with that attack!
You can try investing Attack EVs to hit certain 2HKO thresholds on Ghosts with Knock Off, but max. Attack Jolly Cyclizar fails to OHKO Zoroark-Hisui, for crying out loud.
