[OVERVIEW]
Although Woobat has a niche in its unique ability Simple, allowing it to double the boosts from Calm Mind and quickly make Stored Power threatening, it has several gaping flaws; in particular, it has a mediocre typing, lacking bulk, and a weakness to the plethora of viable Dark-types in the tier, such as Pawniard, Vullaby, and Alolan Grimer. Additionally, Woobat's reliance on setting up Calm Mind to pose an offensive threat means it is often outclassed by more consistent Psychic-type sweepers such as Abra.

[SET]
name: Simple Sweeper
move 1: Calm Mind
move 2: Stored Power
move 3: Heat Wave / Air Slash
move 4: Roost / Substitute
item: Eviolite / Salac Berry
ability: Simple
nature: Timid
evs: 76 HP / 12 Def / 236 SpA / 180 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]
This set attempts to utilize its slight advantage over Abra, namely the combination of Simple and Calm Mind, to sweep. It can choose to have a better matchup against balance or offense by running either Roost and Eviolite or Substitute and a Salac Berry. However, it is easily prevented from sweeping due to its poor bulk allowing few setup opportunities, its inability to outspeed Choice Scarf users without a Salac Berry boost, and its weakness to Sucker Punch. These factors make Abra a more solid choice than Woobat on most teams.

I'd mention Stored Power in the overview because of the synergy with Simple CM. Also quadresisting Mach Punch is kinda cool for a sweeper. Good otherwise, QC 1/2.

[OVERVIEW]
Although Woobat has a niche in its unique ability Simple, allowing it to double the boosts gained from Calm Mind and quickly make Stored Power threatening, it has several gaping flaws; in particular a mediocre typing, incredibly lacking bulk, and a weakness to the plethora of viable Dark-types in the tier, such as Pawniard, Vullaby, and Alolan Grimer. Additionally, Woobat's over-reliance on setting up Calm Mind to pose an offensive threat means it is often too outclassed by more consistent Psychic-type sweepers such as Abra to merit a spo. (I didn't think you need the last part on almost any serious team.f that sentence, leave it in if you want but it seemed redundant.)

This set attempts to utilize its fewslight advantages over Abra, in particular,namely the combination of Simple and Calm Mind, to sweep. Moreover, It can choose to have a better matchup against balance or offense by running either Roost + Eviolite or Substitute + Salac Berry. However, it is too easily prevented from sweeping due to its poor bulk allowing few setup opportunities or, its inability to outspeed Choice Scarf users without a Salac Berry boost, and a weakness to Sucker Punch outweighing its Mach Punch resistance. This impedes Woobat from being a. These factors make Abra a more solid choice than Woover Abrat on most teams. I felt like the last couple sentences of this paragraph, though grammatically correct, were somewhat awkwardly worded so I tried to fix that. Obviously that's a subjective change though and it's up to you.
