[SET COMMENTS]
Belly Drum, paired with Triage, turns Kommo-o into a deadly sweeper. After Belly Drum, Kommo-o's maxed-out Attack and priority Drain Punch make it incredibly difficult to stop with few reliable checks other than Prankster Toxapex, Unaware, and Psychic Surge. Kommo-o's fantastic natural bulk lets it set up on passive Pokemon such as Ferrothorn and defensive Landorus-T, along with Choice-item wallbreakers locked into a resisted move such as Zarude and Barraskewda. Drain Punch is the primary move, boasting +3 priority and making Kommo-o difficult to revenge kill thanks to its recovery. Thunder Punch hits Corviknight and Tapu Fini for super effective damage, who would otherwise tank Drain Punch. Substitute eases prediction and provides setup opportunities, while Dragon Claw gives Kommo-o a strong neutral attack on Pokemon such as Zapdos. X-Scissor allows Kommo-o to OHKO Dauntless Shield Mew at +6 with Life Orb. Sitrus Berry and 64 HP EVs allow Kommo-o to set up on Corviknight, while an Adamant nature gives it as much Attack investment as possible. Life Orb is a more aggressive option, allowing Kommo-o to OHKO Tapu Koko with Drain Punch.

Belly Drum Kommo-o fits best on hyper offensive teams, but it can also effectively act as a lure on bulkier teams. Pairing Kommo-o with other physical threats such as Garchomp and Talonflame forms a nice physical spam core, letting each more easily overwhelm common defensive checks such as Zapdos and Tapu Fini. Tapu Koko and Regieleki provide dual screens support on hyper offensive, giving Kommo-o more opportunities to set up. On bulkier teams, slow pivots such as Swampert and Corviknight can bring in Kommo-o safely with their pivoting moves. Kommo-o is very weak to Triage Draining Kiss, so Assault Vest Jirachi is a valued partner; Jirachi also checks Psychic Surge Azelf. Finally, Zapdos and Tapu Koko can threaten Unaware Mandibuzz and Prankster Toxapex with their STAB Electric moves.

[STRATEGY COMMENTS]
Other Options
=============

Due to its great stats, Kommo-o can use a wide variety of sets to surprise the opponent, with a great movepool including Flamethrower, Earthquake, and the powerful boosting move Clangorous Soul. Many other abilities, including Tough Claws, are possible too; however, these sets are usually worse than those listed, and Galvanize Kommo-o already brings heavy surprise factor. Swords Dance + Triage is an option to let Kommo-o function more easily as a wallbreaker and by giving it more setup opportunities, but this set is more inconsistent. Lastly, defensive variants can use Substitute over Dragon Tail alongside Iron Defense, avoiding Scald burns from Toxapex and Toxic from Swampert and while becoming very hard to stop as Body Press sweepers.

Checks and Counters
===================

**Flying-types**: Flying-type Pokemon such as Zapdos and Landorus-T resist Kommo-o's Fighting-type STAB moves and hit back with a powerful Flying-type STAB move or pivot out into a revenge killer.

**Fairy-types**: Fairy-types such as Tapu Fini are a major nuisance for Kommo-o, as they resist or are immune to its STAB moves; moreover, they can threaten it with powerful Fairy-type moves, and Tapu Lele and Togekiss even revenge kill it thanks to Draining Kiss and Triage. However, Tapu Fini fears Galvanize Boomburst.

**Unaware and Haze**: Users of Unaware and Toxapex with Prankster + Haze can easily deny Kommo-o's sets that rely on stats boosts, such as Belly Drum. However, most of them can be lured in and beaten by Galvanize sets.

**Dauntless Shield Mew**: Dauntless Shield Mew avoids the OHKO from any attack of Kommo-o and can threaten it back with Will-O-Wisp and Ice Beam, or just pivot out into a revenge killer.

**Volt Absorb**: Volt Absorb users such as Toxapex or Coviknight can prevent Boomburst Kommo-o from surprise KOing them. Volt Absorb Toxapex is particularly efficient, as it can also stop Belly Drum Kommo-o with Haze and its immunity to Thunder Punch.

**Psychic Surge**: Psychic Surge Pokemon such as Azelf can prevent Kommo-o from using Triage Drain Punch and can easily outspeed and KO it with Expanding Force.

Belly Drum, paired with Triage, turns Kommo-o into a deadly sweeper. After a Belly Drum, Kommo-o's maxed-out attack and priority Drain Punch makes it incredibly difficult to stop, only walled by Prankster Haze, Unaware, and Psychic Surge. Kommo-o's fantastic natural bulk lets it set up on passive Pokemon such as Ferrothorn and defensive Landorus-T, along with choiced breakers locked into a resisted move such as Zarude or Barraskewda. Drain Punch is a reliable STAP STAB option that also heals Kommo-o and prevents it from being easily revenge-killed. Thunder Punch hits Corviknight and Tapu Fini for super-effective damage, who would otherwise resist Drain Punch. Substitute is an option that eases prediction and setup opportunities, while Dragon Claw gives Kommo-o a strong neutral attack on Pokemon such as Zapdos. (X-Scissor lets you cook Dshield Mew w/ LO) 4 HP EVs allow Kommo-o to activate its Sitrus Berry after a Belly Drum, while an Adamant nature gives it as much attack investment as possible. (taking out of speed and putting 60 EVs in HP lets you belly drum on brave bird corv if your kommo-o is at 100% and has sitrus berry, but NOT on Life Orb) Life Orb is a more aggressive option, allowing Kommo-o to OHKO Tapu Koko at +6.

Tapu Koko and (I think this should be or since you wouldn't put both of them as leads on HO) Regieleki provide dual screens support on hyper offensive, giving Kommo-o more opportunities to set up.
