Grookey @ Choice Band
Ability: Grassy Surge
Level: 5
EVs: 236 Atk / 36 SpD / 236 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Grassy Glide
- Drain Punch
- U-turn
- Wood Hammer / Knock Off

Grassy Glide + Grassy Terrain + Choice Band destroys even resists. Drain Punch for Pawniard. U-turn for momentum. Wood Hammer for outside of Grassy Terrain (might not be necessary since Grookey is the only terrain setter in the tier) or Knock Off to remove items like Berry Juice.

Nice set, Nebby! :)

Grookey @ Assault Vest
Ability: Grassy Surge
EVs: 196 HP, 236 Atk, 76 Def
Nature: Adamant (+Atk, -SpAtk)
Fake Out
Knock Off
Drain Punch
Wood Hammer

A bulky sweeper. The Assault Vest pairs nicely with the 4 attacking moves. Grassy surge heals it every turn and boosts Wood Hammer, and the EVs allow it to hit hard while tanking hits. Adamant allows it to hit harder than usual. Fake Out is for flinching, Knock Off is for ghosts that are immune to Fake Out, Wood Hammer is strong STAB boosted by Grassy Terrain, and Drain Punch heals Wood Hammer recoil.

Ability:grassy surge
EVs:252 HP 252 attack 4 speed
•Fake Out: make them flinch and do some damage
•Swords Dance: good attack boost
•Leech Seed: to heal him and damage a little
•Wood Hammer: powerful STAB, grassy terrain boost
Leech seed and grassy terrain heal him well so he can set up swords dance and use wood hammer. Eviolite gives him decent bulk

Grookey @ Eviolite (Extra Bulk)
196 Hp 200 Attack 36 SpD
Grassy Surge
Adamant Nature
-Fake Out
-Leech Seed
- Drain Punch
- Protect
This is mainly meant to be a health drainer. Fake Out is just for some extra damage and to flinch. Then Leech Seed, Drain Punch and Protect let this thing restore plenty of health. Grassy Surge also gives it more health as well.
