Moveset pls
You're always going to be punished for making an incorrect prediction, honestly. If someone switches Chomp into an Electric attack, your safest play is to switch, no matter what item you're using. You can't risk them being Scarf, nor that you won't get damage roll needed to OHKO.
If you switch Tapu Koko against a water pokemon, your opponent is most likely going to switch out to a ground pokemon. So you should use HP ice instead of Tbolt
This is for OU, right?
yeah who uses tapu koko in ubers with all the primal groudons running around
I thought it might be BSS or VGC or something.

You want to defeat Garchomp? Scarf Garchomp can OHKO Tapu Koko easily. And Tapu Koko can OHKO Chomp with HP Ice easily.
