name: Calm Mind + Baton Pass
move 1: Calm Mind
move 2: Baton Pass
move 3: Substitute / Wish
move 4: Hyper Voice
ability: Pixilate
item: Leftovers
evs: 252 HP / 244 Def / 12 Speed
nature: Bold

Moves
========

Calm Mind is used to boost Sylveon's Special Attack and Special Defense to pass to a teammate, but it can also be used to boost Sylveon's damage output. Baton Pass passes boosts and Substitutes to allies that can take their advantage of the boosted stats. Substitute is a good option on a forced switch and can be Baton Passed to a teammate, but Wish allows Sylveon to recover and set up more, and Wish can heal a teammate. Hyper Voice is boosted by Pixilate and is a STAB move, and it prevents Sylveon from being completely vulnerable to Taunt.

Set Details
========

12 Speed EVs let Sylveon outspeed 0 Speed Tyranitar. The rest of the EVs are put in HP and Defense to increase both Sylveon's physical and special bulk. Leftovers grants Sylveon passive recovery, boosting its longevity a little bit. Pixilate turns Hyper Voice into a powerful Fairy-type move.

Usage Tips
========

Try to get off a Calm Mind and pass it to another Pokemon that will benefit from the boost. Aim to set up on slow Pokemon that do not threaten Sylveon much, such as Conkeldurr and Tyranitar. Make sure you use Baton Pass against fast and powerful Pokemon, before they hit Sylveon hard. You can also Baton Pass out on a predicted switch to a Pokemon that threatens Sylveon, such as Scizor or Excadrill, to gain momentum. Use Wish either when Sylveon's health is low or when you want to Baton Pass it to an ally that is at low health and that can take a hit from the opponent before recovering. Substitute is good to use when predicting an incoming status move. If the status user is faster, it usually isn't able to break through the Substitute, and Substitute allows Sylveon to set up Calm Minds and pass them to an ally that can benefit from it.

Team Options
========

Fast Pokemon that appreciate a Calm Mind boost, such as Keldeo, Landorus, Thundurus, and Greninja, are good Baton Pass recipients, especially if they resist one of the types that Sylveon is weak to and can sweep after receiving the boosts. Also, Pokemon such as Charizard and Garchomp that can deal with Steel-types make for good partners.
