I'm building another team in Pokemon Showdown, this time for the VGC 2020 tier, and I want to run Mold Breaker Excadrill as my first Pokemon. However, I'm hung up on choosing Tyranitar or Rotom Wash as a partner. Does anyone have any suggestions?
It'll depend on the rest of your team, as I see it both those Pokemon have anti synergy with mold breaker exadrill. Mold breaker will make you hit rotom w through levitate with earthquake and ttar is weak to ground and provides no coverage or protection to mold breaker exadrill other then like the sandstorm dealing a bit of damage so your calcs can be more accurate. And earthquake is pretty much a must have for a good vgc exadrill. I'd highly recommend you give up on both unless you're considering particular pivotting strategies using protect. But even then you're playing a pretty obvious game. And you're going to be faked out to oblivion I promise you that kek
