When used with a Choice Band, Syclant becomes an extremely strong wallbreaker and pivot by virtue of its powerful STAB U-turns and signature ability, Mountaineer, which allows it to come into play often without being worn down. This combination allows Syclant to wear down common checks, such as Rotom-H, Corviknight, and Arghonaut very handily over the course of a game, whilst also enabling Pokemon who appreciate free switches into such Pokemon, like Hydreigon, Zeraora, and Tomohawk respectively. Icicle Crash offers Syclant an excellent Ice-type STAB which allows it to pressure the likes of Clefable and Seismitoad. Earthquake is mandatory as it gives Syclant the ability to break through the metagame's common Poison-types in Toxapex and Mollux, which otherwise would completely wall it. Ice Shard further enhances Syclant's ability to act as a revenge killer, as it enables it to pick off Pokemon such as Choice Scarf Hydreigon and Dragapult, provided they are slightly weakened beforehand.
