Replace Aqua Jet with Ice Punch.
First, this is vgc, so ice punch is quite bad. Second of all, revenge killing purposes? What about spectrier? Dragapult? Kartana?

GIGANTAMAX URSHIFU AG

Urshifu-Gmax @ Assault Vest / Choice Band
Ability: Unseen Fist
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Close Combat
- Wicked Blow
- Iron Head / Poison Jab
- Stone Edge / U-turn

Close Combat --> Max Knuckle
Wicked Blow --> G-Max One Blow
Iron Head --> Max Steelspike / Poison Jab --> Max Ooze
Stone Edge --> Max Rockfall / U-Turn --> Max Flutterby

- Close Combat strong STAB and hits Dark-resistant foes mainly like Yveltal on the switch. When Gigantamaxed, Close Combat turns into Max Knuckle and raises the users attack stat by 1 stage.
- Wicked Blow STAB and always results in a critical hit, this is part of the reason why Urshifu is so broken along with the fact that it ignores protect and detect thanks to the ability Unseen Fist. When Gigantamaxed, Wicked Blow turns into "G-Max One Blow" and breaks through Max Guard and any protect like move.
- Iron Head / Poison Jab both hit fairy types while Iron Head has a good 30% chance to cause the opposing Pokemon to flinch and Poison Jab has a good 30% chance to cause the opposing Pokemon to be poisoned.
- Stone Edge is strong coverage that hits Flying Type Pokemon and has an increased critical hit ratio of 1/8 instead of 1/24 but it also has a 20% chance to miss as well.
- U-turn to pivot out of bad spots and to get other teammates in safely.
