Cottonee @ Eviolite
Ability: Prankster
Level: 5
EVs: 196 Def / 60 SpA / 196 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Leech Seed
- Toxic / Stun Spore
- Taunt
- Giga Drain / Energy Ball

Priority Leech Seed is a very good thing to have, capable of crippling attackers with no reliable forms of recovery. Toxic is a nice way to take out an opponent gradually, if you have no other means of taking them down. Stun Spore can be used instead if you want paralysis. Taunt stops things like Grookey from setting up Swords Dances, Foongus using Spore, and it prevents Mareanie from using Recover. Giga Drain and Energy Ball are both STAB that help Cottonee stay away from being complete Taunt bait itself. Giga Drain is weaker and heals Cottonee, while Energy Ball is brute damage. Eviolite and a Bold Nature help it stick around longer. Watch out for things like Pawniard and Vullaby, as both are immune to Cottonee's status moves. Vullaby can wipe the floor with Cottonee by using Brave Bird, and Pawniard obliterates it with a Swords Danced Iron Head.
