[OVERVIEW]
Delibird has some of the worst stats of any fully evolved Pokemon and a terrible defensive typing. Articuno outclasses Delibird in almost every way thanks to its similar movepool paired with some of the best stats in the tier. While Delibird has access to a decent lead movepool that Articuno doesn't get, it is outclassed in this role by other suicide leads such as Accelgor, Froslass, and Kabutops.

[SET]
Suicide Lead (Delibird) @ Focus Sash
Ability: Vital Spirit
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Spikes
- Rapid Spin
- Memento
- Freeze-Dry

[SET COMMENTS]
Delibird attemps to work as a dedicated lead for hyper offensive teams, setting up Spikes, keeping entry hazards off with Rapid Spin, and preventing removal with Memento. However, Accelgor, Froslass, and Kabutops are much more effective at this role thanks to their much better stats, letting them outspeed a huge part of the tier and threaten opposing foes with their powerful attacks.
