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

Trick Room dynamaxer:
[email protected] Policy
Ability:Chilling Neigh
Nature:Brave
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

VGC 2021 Trick Room Dynamax Sweeper

Glastrier @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Chilling Neigh
Level: 50
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Brave Nature
- Icicle Crash
- High Horsepower
- Close Combat
- Protect

Under Trick Room, Glastrier is a beast. With Icicle Crash as a strong Ice-type STAB Attack, it destroys all non-Ice-resistant Pokemon. High Horsepower is powerful coverage for Rock, Steel, and Fire types. Close Combat is more coverage, as well as turning into Max Knuckle under Dynamax, boosting its already high attack even further. After a few Chilling Neigh boosts and Trick Room up, there is little to do against it. Sitrus Berry is my item of choice because another member of my team (Rhyperior) already used up the Weakness Policy slot, but Weakness Policy is usually run.

This set works well under Trick Room along with support Pokemon like Amoonguss, Dusclops, and Incineroar. I find it really fun to use, as not much resists all of its attacks. Tapu Fini can stand in its way, but it can't do much damage back in return.

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

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.

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

Gen 8 NU


Glastrier @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Chilling Neigh
EVs: 208 HP / 252 Atk / 48 Spe
Adamant Nature

  • Icicle Crash
  • High Horsepower
  • Swords Dance
  • Facade / Close Combat / Rest / Heavy Slam

48 Speed EVs are used to speedcreep common Copperajah sets, the rest is invested into bulk since Glastrier is really slow otherwise. An alternate set of 68 HP / 216 Atk / 224 Spe and a Jolly Nature can be used to outspeed uninvested Vaporeon and Sylveon as well as hit a benchmark that lets it outspeed Dragalge, something 48 Spe cannot do. Icicle Crash is powerful STAB. High Horsepower is coverage that hits Fire, Steel, and Rock types. Swords Dance boosts Attack. Facade is used to abuse the presence of moves such as Vaporeon and Dragalge's Scald, the multitude of Toxics flying around, Arcanine and Rotom-M's Will-O-Wisp, and Thunder Wave from...something. Close Combat is a stronger hit on Steel and Rock than High Horsepower, but its Defense and Special Defense lowering side effect combined with Glastrier's low Speed means it will almost always have to switch out after using the move. Rest is used to be an effective stallbreaker, and it also removes status. Heavy Slam is hits Rock types hard, but it isn't as good as the other options.

Glastrier @ Choice Band
Ability: Chilling Neigh
EVs: 120 HP / 124 Atk / 104 Def / 160 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Icicle Crash
- Close Combat
- High Horsepower
- Megahorn

Players kind of underestimate this thing in singles. With a Choice Band on top of its already high base 145 Attack stat, this thing hits like a truck, and can tank hits decently well too.
