Haxorus wins for check, and I’m breaking the tie in favor of Snorlax for Counter!
Congratulations to asmirnov and Fusion Flare for winning! I would also like to announce avarice as the new cohost, replacing Taptricity





:sm/keldeo:
WATERMELON SUGAR (Keldeo) @ Choice Specs
Ability: Justified
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Secret Sword
- Hydro Pump
- Air Slash
- Icy Wind

The pony has arrived, and it’s galloping all over the tier, sporting a dashing special attack stat and a great STAB combo that leaves opposing defensive cores whinnying for mercy. How will you convince opponents to part from that watermelon sugar high?

have a good one, xoxo

Fusion Flare

Formerly Datsplashtho
Jellicent @ Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 172 Def / 84 Spe
Bold Nature
- Hex
- Will-O-Wisp
- Taunt
- Recover

Immune to both STABs, takes negligible damage from Icy Wind too. The only thing you gotta fear is air slash flinches, but so long as thats out of the way, counter.

Mantine @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
- Scald
- Roost
- Defog

- Toxic


:mantine: is a counter to keldeo as it can comfortably switch into its hydro pumps due to the amazing ability in water absorb, furthermore
it takes a secret sword with ease and can comfortably wall keldeo due to its flying-type resisting the fighting-stab of keldeo.
to add onto that: air slash and icy wind wont do too much either and mantine can either scald keldeo and get a possible scald-burn
or toxic keldeo and put it on a timer for the rest of the battle.

calcs:
252 SpA Choice Specs Keldeo Secret Sword vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Mantine: 93-110 (24.8 - 29.4%) -- 100% chance to 4HKO
Keldeo Hydro Pump vs. Water Absorb Mantine: 0-0 (0 - 0%) -- possibly the worst move ever
252 SpA Choice Specs Keldeo Air Slash vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Mantine: 91-108 (24.3 - 28.8%) -- 99.3% chance to 4HKO
252 SpA Choice Specs Keldeo Icy Wind vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Mantine: 67-79 (17.9 - 21.1%) -- possible 5HKO

smushy wushy (Reuniclus) @ Assault Vest
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
- Psychic
- Knock Off
- Psyshock
- Shadow Ball

check:


252 SpA Choice Specs Keldeo Hydro Pump vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Assault Vest Reuniclus: 144-169 (33.9 - 39.8%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252 SpA Choice Specs Keldeo Secret Sword vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Reuniclus: 131-155 (30.8 - 36.5%) -- 66.7% chance to 3HKO

4 SpA Reuniclus Psychic vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Keldeo: 254-302 (78.6 - 93.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Keldeo can't 2HKO you while you easily 2HKO with Psychic. Technically if you switch in on a STAB you might not be able to instantly beat it which is why you're not a true counter but Regen means you can switch to a proper resist afterwards and not worry about predictions since Keldeo is choiced. You also have the option of Knocking Off Keldeo so he can never dream about breaking Reuniclus again
 
rip big jelly i’ll take it ha tbh countering keldeo is just so straightforward and it feels boring soooo I came up with Sylveon as a more shaky counter:

:ss/sylveon:
Sylveon @ Leftovers
Ability: Pixilate
EVs: 252 HP / 132 SpA / 124 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Hyper Voice
- Wish
- Protect
- Mystical Fire / Heal Bell / Filler


252 SpA Choice Specs Keldeo Hydro Pump vs. 252 HP / 124+ SpD Sylveon: 177-208 (44.9 - 52.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Leftovers recovery

252 SpA Choice Specs Keldeo Secret Sword vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Sylveon: 147-174 (37.3 - 44.1%) -- 100% chance to 3HKO after Leftovers recovery

132 SpA Pixilate Sylveon Hyper Voice vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Keldeo: 308-366 (95.3 - 113.3%) -- 75% chance to OHKO

132 SpA Pixilate Sylveon Hyper Voice vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Keldeo: 308-366 (95.3 - 113.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock

Hydro Pump does not 2HKO, but only when Sylv is at full health and has Lefties. She can then proceed to stall out Hydro Pumps with Wish + Protect or KO with Hyper Voice. Note that it is only a guaranteed OHKO if watermelon sugar pony has taken chip of at least Rocks damage. The EVs can also be customized, if you don’t want to rely on lefties you can use 200 HP / 252 SpD or 252 HP / 204 SpD. Or, you can invest the remaining EVs in Defense to be equipped better versus physical threats.

Critique and feedback are welcome, I don’t think I’ve ever posted in UU forums before
 
Congrats to pokeisfun and Katy for winning this week with Reuni and Mantine respectively!



LOVE ME 4 ME (Sylveon) @ Leftovers
Ability: Pixilate
EVs: 252 HP / 16 SpA / 240 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Hyper Voice
- Mystical Fire
- Substitute
- Calm Mind

Sylveon has always been a solid pick but this set lets it take advantage of some of its more passive answers. This variant of Calm Mind Sylveon can be rather threatening and has been gaining traction as of late! How will you check or attempt to counter it? Submissions end Sunday!
 
reserving toxtricity



Toxtricity @ Choice Specs
Ability: Punk Rock
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Boomburst
- Overdrive
- Volt Switch
- Sludge Wave

Toxtricity outspeeds Sylveon and OHKO's with Sludge Wave after Stealth Rock. Slyveon has a chance to survive but it will have too low health to get a Substitute up, it's damaging moves don't do much, and using Calm Mind wouldn't help because it would still be at low enough health to matter. Modest can also be run to guarantee the OHKO on Sylveon with Stealth Rocks.

252 SpA Choice Specs Toxtricity Sludge Wave vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Sylveon: 338-402 (85.7 - 102%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock
252 SpA Choice Specs Toxtricity Sludge Wave vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Sylveon: 338-402 (85.7 - 102%) -- 12.5% chance to OHKO
16 SpA Sylveon Hyper Voice vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Punk Rock Toxtricity: 48-56 (16.4 - 19.2%) -- possible 6HKO
16 SpA Sylveon Mystical Fire vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Toxtricity: 79-94 (27.1 - 32.3%) -- guaranteed 4HKO
252+ SpA Choice Specs Toxtricity Sludge Wave vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Sylveon: 372-440 (94.4 - 111.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock

This is a check btw
