What are strategies, mons or ways to counter sashed Urshifu? Please try and list rational and viable mons and make sure you list calcs.
For example, the first thing one of us might think of is Talonflame w/ Dual Wingbeat. However, you need choice band and adamant nature in order to K.O Urshifu:
252+ Atk Choice Band Talonflame Dual Wingbeat (2 hits) vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Urshifu: 168-204 (96 - 116.5%) -- approx. 87.5% chance to OHKO
Talonflame would almost be useless aside from being able to counter Urshifu.
In other words, how can you defeat sashed Urshifu in a 1v1 situation but still take into consideration that it is a doubles match where your Pokemon still have purposes aside from being able to K.O Urshifu?
e.g. Fini has a good matchup against both Ursifus, allowing it to tank both of their hits nicely.
