FEAR stands for Focus Sash Endeavor Rattata, which is quite a good strategy, especially if the format has disallowed dynamaxing. But this strategy has it's own weaknesses, so how viable is it?

I think that it is horrible.  With Shadow -Calyrex and many others tuning rampant, it is impossible to do well.  I think I just don't like the amount of variables in this set that completely ruin it.
You're always asking same kinda questions! :(
What do you mean by that? I'm just trying to reach 2000 elo in natdexag so I need the most viable mons or a simpler strategy
scrappy can hit ghosts... (swellow family)
Depends how not knowledgeable of the strat your opponent is. Normally, they know sp I'd say it's not viable at all(I tried this and failed lol)

FEAR is pretty unviable.
Any hazards, switching, or ghost types can counter it, as well as multi hit moves and weather. There are so many things that can go wrong to the point where it is unviable.
