hi! I need a good partner for mega absol providing good offensive synergy able to take Down most pokes mega absol cant take. I was thinking off hydreigon, fast pseudo-powerhouse able to take Down almost any Pokemon With specs. and absol can then late game sweep. but the problem is that, that would give teribble fairy weakness. should I just stick With hydreigon or have you someone to recomend?
heres the set:

Absol-Mega @ Absolite
enter image description here
Ability: Magic Bounce
hasty nature
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 SAtk
- Sucker Punch
- Flamethrower
- Swords Dance
- Play Rough

thanks!

Psycho Cut > Flamethrower
i was thinking of that, but flamethower makes Perfect coverage having at least normal effectiveness against every pokemon+its surprising
I personally always like flamethrower, as it nails steel types like metagross as well as tan growth and avalugg, and play rough nails all the fighting types psychology cut gets except toxicroak while also getting medicham and scrafty. I guess it's good for the nidos and crobat.
Yes boost your attack stat and then use a special attack!
God I love battling :D

Best answer

Here are a few choices that I think would pair well with Mega Absol.


Cofagrigus @ Leftovers
Ability: Mummy
EVs: 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 SAtk
Calm Nature
- Will-O-Wisp
- Rest
- Shadow Ball
- Energy Ball

First up is Cofagrigus who can pull off a mixed wall set with WoW and SDef EVs. It's great bulk allows it to tank a large number of hits, and it resists Absol's weaknesses. Shadow Ball is STAB while Energy is to get the drop on lots of tanky Pokemon like Rhyperior and Swampert.


Roserade @ Black Sludge
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 240 SDef / 16 Spd
Calm Nature
- Toxic Spikes
- Synthesis
- Giga Drain
- Sludge Bomb

Another option is Roserade who can tank a huge number of special attacks while also setting up some Toxic Spikes to harm your foe. Synthesis is recovery while Giga Drain and Sludge Bomb are STABs and provide good coverage.


Chandelure @ Choice Specs
Ability: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
Timid Nature
- Shadow Ball
- Trick
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Fire Blast

Last off is Specs Chandelure who can provide some offensive support for Absol with a good variety of powerful Special Moves. It would also allow you to switch over to Psycho Cut on Absol which is a far better option. Trick screws over a lot of opposing walls who could potentially tank Absol's attacks.
