My Little Ponyta (Ponyta-Galar) @ Eviolite
Ability: Pastel Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
- Agility
- Calm Mind
- Stored Power
- Morning Sun

Defeat all Dark-types beforehand and find a good opportunity to set up, like with a Toxic staller. Proceed to sweep teams with an LC Pokemon. Ponyta has surprisingly good stats for a LC Pokemon. Watch out for Phazers and Haze.

Gen 8 ZU / PU


Rapidash-Alola @ Kee Berry
Ability: Pastel Veil / Anticipation
EVs: 252 HP / 20 Def / 236 Spe
Timid Nature

  • Calm Mind
  • Morning Sun
  • Stored Power
  • Dazzling Gleam / Mystical Fire

Calm Mind is set-up. Morning Sun is healing, and lets you potentially use Calm Mind again. Stored Power is a very powerful STAB move after accumulating a few boosts. Dazzling Gleam is STAB that covers Dark types which are immune to Stored Power. Mystical Fire hits Dark types neutrally, and the Stored Power resistant Steel types super-effectively. It also lowers Special Attack, making G-Rapidash even bulkier.
