Hey y'all, I'mm having an annoyingly hard time dealing with Tapu Bulu and Tapu Fini... idk what it is about them since I haven't experimented with them on Showdown yet, but they seem really bulky(to the point where I don't expect it). I'm not sure if Tapu Koko and Tap Lele are as annoying because I don't seem to deal with them as often as the other two. Also, I battle in Doubles, if that helps to clarify the situation. Please let me know what you guys do to deal with the Island Deities! I'm open to all advice, suggestions, etc. Thanks!

You can wait for them to get banned.
It's that deadly STAB wood hammer with the recoil recovered by grassy terrain.

Shiinotic could be a good option but you wont be able to make 3 of the 4 tapu fall asleep with spore/spore effect, but you can still tank the grass type + getting recovery, Strenght sap to lower his atk while healing more (i use big roots on him & he's practically unkillable)

I've underestimated Shiinotic so many times! After this, I'm looking into it. Thanks a bunch!

May be toxapex bcz it can tank 3/4 tapus well except for tapu lele

I have actually tried using Toxapex, and its recovery can't outpace choice band wood hammers.

Magnezone (or eviolite Magneton)

It will resist a lot of their attacks and will be able to hit back with super effective steel type moves against Tapu Bulu and electric type moves against Tapu Fini.
Tapu Fini boasts high special defence so will be more difficult, but Magnezone and Magneton both have high special attacks stats which balance this out.
The only attacking ground type attacks either learns would be Hidden power, and Tapu Bulu can learn some fighting type attacks, but Magneton and Magnezone's high defence should deal with this fairly well.
