Tier: RU

Scout (Morpeko) @ Life Orb
Ability: Hunger Switch
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Aura Wheel
- Parting Shot
- Protect
- Psychic Fangs

Although this is only one different move from NebbyY's, I prefer a more offense-based Morpeko, but I like the idea of being able to switch what Aura Wheel I want, whenever I want. And whenever immunities or defensive matchups present a challenge, Parting Shot is your escape route. The difference here is Psychic Fangs will do considerable damage to Virizion and Vileplume. With a little prediction magic, you should be able to subdue these threats by first throwing an Aura Wheel in anticipation and following with a Psychic Fang. It also OHKOs Hitmonlee if they're gutsy enough to switch into your Dark Aura Wheel.

Alternatively, you could use Seed Bomb to nuke Gastrodon, but it helps less with other Pokemon throughout the tier (it even does surprisingly little to Rhydon, who has a 4x weakness to Grass). It hits Mudsdale super-effectively as well, but it's not ideal given they all run Stamina. You could Parting Shot it afterward if that happened. Anyway, I prefer Psychic Fangs. Let me know if you guys like it - I know it looks situational, but I have confidence that if you play RU you know what I'm going after.
