Fyi tapu bulu is definitely not exclusively an offensive mon, it would just be bad rilla if it was. Anyway, i personally find hydrei to be a terrible defensive gap filler cause of its truckload of weaknesses to common attacking moves(cc, moonblast, uturn, etc.) but that’s just my opinion tbh. Ima get off the hydrei discussion cause it seems my nom was unpopular.Hydreigon is better than those 3 because it is not exclusively an offensive mon. Tbh, I don’t even think of Hydreigon as an offense first mon as more often than not you are choosing it to plug holes defensively. I disagree about splashability; every team could appreciate an answer to Heatran, Blace, and Bisharp.
Hopping on the lele bandwagon aswell, it’s an amazing offensive mon that can break literally anything with the right move, and it doesn’t pack a rocks weakness like kyurem. Onto another surely controversial nom imao.
I know this seems like crowding the S ranks, but I feel like this is a mainstay on a ridiculous amount of builds. Corv’s unparalleled ability to blanket check nearly all of the physical attackers of the meta, AND soft-check lele as well as slow-pivot to bring in breakers, defog on all rockers bar heatran, and being the seemingly only riskless swap in to toxic lando make it worthy of S- in my eyes. Not gonna bother replying to the inevitable pushback this time.
