the only new pokemon in the entire crown tundra that got coverage moves so of course they only gave it 30 speed

Glastrier @ Assault Vest
Ability: Chilling Neigh
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 Def
Adamant Nature
- Avalanche
- Close Combat
- High Horsepower
- Crunch
A vest helps it stay alive longer than it already does, and avalanche is strong stab that can have 120 base power if it got hit. Close combat is strong, and covers rock types. High horsepower also covers rock, but also can get toxapex and regieleki. Crunch is for its horse counterpart, who's very popular in ou currently

I like it lol

Glastrier @ Leftovers
Ability: Chilling Neigh
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Avalanche/Icicle Crash
- Close Combat
- Crunch
- Swords Dance
Avalanche if you think it's bulky enough, icicle crash if you dont. Close combat is powerful coverage. Crunch is for Spectrier, and also it doesn't have much better moves. Swords dance to setup. Give it brave nature and 0 speed ivs for trick room, it excels there, but give it icicle crash, as avalanche makes you go last

Ability: chilling neigh
252 atk/252hp/4sp.def
Adamant nature

SD can be swapped for any coverage moves but I personally prefer SD to hit like a truck
If used in trick room, brave nature and 0spe IVs

Trick Room dynamaxer:
[email protected] Policy
Ability:Chilling Neigh
EVs:252 Atk/252 Def/4 HP
•Heavy Slam
•Body Press
•Icicle Crash
•High Horsepower
When Dynamaxed, this Pokémon can take just about any hit, so Weakness Policy is great. Body Press turns in to Max Knuckle for an attack boost, Heavy Slam turns in to Max Steelspike for a defense boost, Icicle Crash turns in to Max Hailstorm Which is strong STAB that breaks sashes, and High Horsepowet turns in to Max Quake which boosts SpD.

Why Body Press when Close Combat is there?
Being entirely dependent on Dynamax is bad.
And, since Dynamax is banned in OU and lower tiers (most of them), it had be AG or Uber. Then Calyrex-Ice is much better. (Though Calyrex-Shadow is broken now, people are running Yveltal, means Ice is comfortable).
First of all, you guys do realize there is such thing as an actual Pokémon game, right? Body press takes advantage of it’s great defense, and it’s supposed to be a bulky attacker, so body press is better to not lower defenses. Heavy slam is situational, and can really suck against other heavy opponents. Its not entirely dependent on dynamax, it can do just fine outside of it
Yeah guys this really isnt that bad lol.
Ok, I edited it, and I play ranked battles lol

RestTalk Glastrier (ok I admit it's terrible but bear with me)
Glastrier @ Leftovers
Ability: Chilling Neigh
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Def
IVs: 0 SpA
Impish/Adamant Nature
- Icicle Crash
- Sleep Talk
- Rest
- Stomping Tantrum/ Body Press
Icicle Crash is STAB. Rest + Sleep Talk is the whole point of the set lmao. Rest along with Leftovers and 252 Def EVs adds to Glastrier's already enormous longevity. Stomping Tantrum can be used with Rest (if you think your opponent might setup but they might also hit you with a strong attack) or Sleep Talk (if you can afford to burn a turn). It can also be helpful if Sleep Talk summons Rest. It also becomes stronger if Icicle Crash misses. Body Press can be used for a more consistent powerful attack. I suggest running Impish nature if and only if you run Body Press.
