Cramorant @ Weakness Policy
Ability: Gulp Missile
EVs: 4 Atk, 252 SpAtk, 252 Spe
Nature: Naive
IVs: 0 HP, 0 Def, 0 SpDef
- Surf
- Air Slash
- Reversal
- Endure

Use Endure when obvious Electric or Rock Move is coming to activate Weakness Policy. IVs and Nature are meant to lower your defenses & HP so that Reversal can do more damage easier. Surf and Endure allows you to continue to activate Gulp Missile and get it to resolve repeatedly.
