  • Choice Specs Calyrex-Shadow

Calyrex-Shadow @ Choice Specs
Ability: As One (Spectrier)
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Astral Barrage
- Psyshock
- Trick
- Aromatherapy

Choice Specs Calyrex-Shadow establishes itself as one of the best wallbreakers that utilize Choice Specs. The combination of Choice Specs' super high damage output as well as Tricking them to decimate defensive Pokemon, as well as taking away Yveltal's Heavy-Duty-Boots makes it no longer immune to one of its weakness—Stealth Rocks. Getting other moves like Psyshock for Chansey and Grass Knot for Tyranitar allows it to shred the most common defensive Pokemon.


  • Gorilla Tactics Darmanitan-Galar

Darmanitan-Galar @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Gorilla Tactics
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Icicle Crash
- U-turn
- Flare Blitz
- Rock Slide

While being slightly underrated because of its Stealth Rocks weakness, its coverage allows to hit a large part of the meta-game very hard. Flare Blitz allows it to hit steel-types, U-Turn for pivoting while Rock Slide deals with Ho-Oh. Its ability to 2HKO Physically Defensive Dusk Mane is pretty nice as well.

252 Atk Gorilla Tactics Darmanitan-Galar Flare Blitz vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Prism Armor Necrozma-Dusk-Mane: 189-223 (47.4 - 56%) -- 82.4% chance to 2HKO


  • Life Orb / Power Herb Eternatus

Eternatus @ Life Orb / Power Herb
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Dynamax Cannon
- Recover
- Flamethrower
- Sludge Bomb / Meteor Beam

Eternatus is one of the best wallbreaker that can heal on passive Pokemon as well. Really good bulk, Toxic immunity and Pressure makes Balance and stall teams have a pain for it to handle. Dynamax Cannon + Flamethrower + Filler has really awesome coverage, hits a chunk the whole tier super effectively. Recover heals Life Orb recoil and makes it annoying for passive Pokemon like Ferrothorn, Ho-Oh, etc. while Dynamax Cannon being strong STAB. Sludge Bomb shuts Xerneas, and with Life Orb all its attack do mad damage. Power Herb is an alternative that allows Eternatus to punish SpD Yveltal and Ho-Oh much better. However, it risks getting set-up on by Xerneas but for that you must have other counters.


  • Double Dance Groudon

Groudon @ Life Orb
Ability: Drought
EVs: 100 HP / 252 Atk / 156 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Rock Polish
- Precipice Blades
- Stone Edge

SD RP Groudon is a very potent physical wallbreaker in Ubers, using infamous EdgeQuake coverage to hit all the tier neutrally. After a Swords Dance, barely any Pokemon can take a +2 Precipice Blades with Life Orb, only bulkiest ones like Zygarde-C, Lunala, Giratina-Altered, etc are able to take a hit but they surely take a lot of damage in the process. Groudon's good physical bulk makes Dusk Mane Necrozma, Tyranitar and other passive Pokemon total set-up baits. Life Orb increases damage output a lot, while Stone Edge takes care of Ho-Oh and Yveltal. Rock Polish doubles your speed, outspeding whole non-Scarfed meta at +2.


  • Choice Specs Kyogre

Kyogre @ Choice Specs
Ability: Drizzle
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
- Water Spout
- Origin Pulse
- Ice Beam
- Thunder

Choice Specs Kyogre is probably the best Pokemon under Sticky Webs, able to decimate almost everything with Water Spout being STAB coming from rain with Choice Specs deals the highest damage. It basically demolishes slow teams, there's no need to worry about them. Ice Beam and Thunder also form good coverage alongside Water Spout, dealing with Eternatus, Yveltal, etc.

252+ SpA Choice Specs Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. 240 HP / 252 SpD Eternatus in Rain: 275-324 (57.1 - 67.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Black Sludge recovery

252+ SpA Choice Specs Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Blissey in Rain: 517-609 (72.4 - 85.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO


  • Life Orb / Choice Band Marshadow

Marshadow @ Life Orb / Choice Band
Ability: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Poltergeist
- Close Combat
- Shadow Sneak
- Rock Tomb / Ice Punch / Bulk Up

With a Choice Band or Life Orb along with unresisted STAB, Marshadow is absolutely threatening even if it doesn't get any Bulk Up boosts. Poltergeist hits harder than Spectral Thief. Close Combat has good BP, Shadow Sneak is priority for faster targets like Calyrex-Shadow. Ice Punch beats Zygarde-C, Rock Tomb handles Ho-Oh and Yveltal. Life Orb is to be chosen with Bulk Up. After a few bulk up it deals heavy damage to any opponent, especially its main counter Arceus-Fairy got removed.

+1 252+ Atk Life Orb Marshadow Close Combat vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Yveltal: 426-503 (93.6 - 110.5%) -- 62.5% chance to OHKO

Notably, Choice Band gets the 2HKO on Eternatus which Focus Sash (dumb sets duh) fail to with Spectral Thief.

252+ Atk Choice Band Marshadow Poltergeist (110 BP) vs. 240 HP / 0 Def Eternatus: 300-354 (62.3 - 73.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Black Sludge recovery


  • Choice Band Zacian-Hero

Zacian @ Choice Band
Ability: Intrepid Sword
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Play Rough
- Close Combat
- Wild Charge
- Crunch

Crowned forme was banned to AG, meaning Hero of Many Battles has seen some increase in usage stats.
While a Choice Banded / Life Orb boosted Hero forme out-damages crowned forme, lack of steel-type can make some things hard for it. Now, it no longer resists Stealth Rocks. It's no more immune to Toxic Spikes and Poison-type, and Xerneas counter can be used for this as well because the steel-type was really helpful Defensively. It can get OHKOed by Sunsteel Strike, gets chipped, etc. Therefore, it needs heavy amount of prediction skills. But it's really worth the effort.

CB Close Combat 2HKOes Physically Defensive NDM, while Crunch does the same while not lowering your Def. Wild Charge is for Ho-Oh, Play Rough is STAB. Choice Band has greatest damage potential at the cost of locking into one move.


These are the ones whom I could thought of. I didn't include Dracovish because I don't think its as potential as Kyogre.

Hope this helps!
