Nature: Sassy (+Sp. Defense, -Speed)
EVs: 252 HP, 128 Defense, 128 Sp. Defense
Role: Physical Tank/Spinner
If your playing a generation 8+ Game, swap Rapid Spin out for Body Press.
Showdown: Doubles OU
Avalugg @ Leftovers
Ability: Ice Body
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
- Body Press
Explanation: This set should be used in double battles alongside this Alolan Ninetales set:
Ninetales-Alola @ Light Clay
Ability: Snow Warning
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
IVs: 0 Atk
- Aurora Veil
- Calm Mind
So, Ninetales sets up Snow Warning, causing Avalugg's ability Ice Body to activate. Aurora Veil is to help out Avalugg with taking hits.
With Avalugg's high defense and Aurora Veil setup, physical attacks aren't really going to do much it. Toxic is to help Avalugg wear down Pokemon with crazy HP. Protect is to let Avalugg get a free the of Leftovers and Ice Body recovery. Body Press works well with Avalugg's high defense.
