Hasty / Naive / Naughty / Lonely Nature
- Volt Tackle
- Volt Switch
- Fake Out
Volt Tackle is powerful STAB that can be used with the strategy. Volt Switch is a pivot move. Fake Out is nice chip damage. Nuzzle inflicts paralysis. The strategy is use Fake Out, then Nuzzle, and survive on Focus Sash. Then Volt Switch for a kamikaze later in the game, or Volt Tackle early if you don't need it anymore. EVs are for speed, power, and a bit of bulk if you need it. You could use Counter, as it goes well with Focus Sash and can score 1 hit KOs, but it takes away its defensive utility because of its cringe speed, and would be killed by priority or a faster Pokemon. The EVs may need improvement, so feel free to criticize.
