Why am I unbanned? (Vullaby) (F) @ Eviolite
Ability: Weak Armor
EVs: 236 SpA / 76 SpD / 196 Spe
IVs: 0 Atk
- Nasty Plot
- Air Slash
- Heat Wave
- Dark Pulse
No doubt, this thing is broken. It has so many different sets and moves for utility, it can be either a Defogger, Defensive pivot or even a set-up sweeper. It's evident from the fact that it got a suspect test recently. However, it wasn't banned.
Nasty Plot boosts its minor 45 Sp.A to higher levels. Air Slash is STAB and the only flying special STAB. Dark Pulse is another STAB which hits at decent BP. Heat Wave is for annoying-steel types and notably Pawniard that resists both of its STAB.
+2 236 SpA Vullaby Heat Wave vs. 0 HP / 116 SpD Eviolite Pawniard: 22-26 (104.7 - 123.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 236 SpA Vullaby Dark Pulse vs. 196 HP / 180 SpD Eviolite Mareanie: 12-15 (50 - 62.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
Since Mareanie doesn't carry Haze, it is pretty much easier to handle. However, Onix is a bit tough to handle, even at +2 because of Sturdy and Head Smash OHKOing Vullaby.
+2 236 SpA Vullaby Dark Pulse vs. 76 HP / 0 SpD Onix: 22-27 (104.7 - 128.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO
Even if you flinch it, it has evil Berry Juice combined with Sturdy that makes it pure evil. However Stealth Rocks are a go for Onix.
236 Atk Onix Head Smash vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Eviolite Vullaby: 24-30 (104.3 - 130.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO
Allocating 76 SpD EVs to Defense gives a 25% chance to survive, however it won't help a lot.
