[OVERVIEW]

Vespiquen's bulk, ability, and access to reliable recovery are completely mitigated by its mediocre typing, which leaves it incredibly weak to Stealth Rock, and its shallow movepool. It also has no offensive presence, which, combined with its typing and movepool, makes it a bad Fighting- and Grass-type check and leaves it walled by Steel-types like Alolan Sandslash. As a check to these types, Oricorio-E does the job better due to its better typing giving it more defensive utility, larger movepool, and higher offensive presence while still having access to reliable recovery.

[SET COMMENTS]

With this set, Vespiquen attempts to slowly chip down at the foe with Toxic while avoiding status and stalling the foe's PP thanks to Pressure. However, this set is unreliable due to Vespiquen's common weaknesses, and it's completely walled by common Steel-types such as Alolan Sandslash. As a Flying-type with defensive utility, Oricorio-E and even Scyther outclass Vespiquen due to their higher offensive presence, better movepool, and the former's better typing.

Vespiquen's bulk, ability and access to reliable recovery are completely mitigated by its mediocre typing, which leaves it incredibly weak to Stealth Rock, its shallow movepool and its inexistant nonexistent? offensive presence, which make makes? it a bad Fighting- and Grass-types check and leave leaves? it walled by Steel-types like Alolan Sandslash. idk this sentence is impossible to understand, but the content seems right. inexistant definitely isn't a thing though As a check to these types, Oricorio-E does the job better due to its better typing, movepool and higher offensive presence while still having access to reliable recovery.

As a Flying-type with defensive utility, Oricorio-E and even Scyther outclass Vespiquen due to their higher offensive presence, better movepool and the former's better typing.

Vespiquen's bulk, ability, [AC] and access to reliable recovery are completely mitigated by its mediocre typing, which leaves it incredibly weak to Stealth Rock, [AC] and its shallow movepool. It also has no offensive presence, which, combined with its typing and movepool, makes it a bad Fighting- and Grass-types check and leaves it walled by Steel-types like Alolan Sandslash. As a check to these types, Oricorio-E does the job better due to its better typing [RC] giving it more defensive utility, larger movepool, [AC] and higher offensive presence while still having access to reliable recovery.
