Dusclops @Eviolite
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Def/ 4 HP
Bold Nature

-Focus punch
-Toxic/ Will-o-wisp
- Seismic Toss

Focus punch is a great way to OHKO dark-type Pokémons. Rest allows Dusclops to keep itself healthy throughout the match and useful for PP stalling out foes plus it’s pressure ability. Toxic enables to stall out bulky Pokémons such as Licklicky, Bouffalant, and Torterra. Will-O-Wisp burns physical attackers like Pinsir, Electivire, and Sillvally (Fighting). Seismic Toss bypasses Dusclop’s awful offensive stats with fixed-damage attack that 4HKOes the majority of the metagame. Also, presseure allows Dusclops to drain Pokémon out of moves that have low PP such as Floatzel’s Liquidation. Dusclops should focus on checking physical attackers like Sillvally (Dragon) and Chatot, which bulky teams also appreciate.

Hope this helps!
