Sure , I don't know Monotype , but I do know team synergy , and Scizor helps with a few holes of this mono-steel (dark Match-up isn't ideal and Having a fast revenge killer with priority short of Kingambit) , Momentum is always appreciated with Doom desire support from Equilibra and Spikes Support from Skarm makes knock off very useful alongside U-Turn to chip all the spikes affected steel resists for Gholdengo/Doom desire/Heatran.
It is indeed the standard Cawmodore set, but it fills nicely the gaps in the team. If spikes are set, it can be a good late game sweeper after using Belly Drum. Drain Punch helps with the Dark Matchup and Acrobatics is really strong against other resistances for the team.
Metagross @ Choice Band
Ability: Clear Body
Tera Type: Steel
EVs: 160 HP / 252 Atk / 96 Spe
- Bullet Punch
- Meteor Mash / Ice Punch / Stone Edge
- Psychic Fangs
- Knock Off / Ice Punch / Stone Edge
Knock Off is always a good utility move, while Meteor Mash is a strong STAB. Ice Punch can be used for better matchup against Mono Flying, Grass and Ground, whereas Stone Edge allows it to hit Fire, Bug and Flying-types effectively.
Kitsunoh fits in this team nicely as it can play a solid bunch of roles for this team..like as a lead to block common hstackers with taunt, secondary spinblocker (and defog with taunt) alongside Ghold and most importantly much needed speed-control with punching glove+iron fist boosted Bullet punch to keep threats like Flutter Mane, Chien Pao and choiced swepers at bay. It can also free switch into CC/aura spheres and provide safe switches to teammates with uturn and wear down bulky mons (with continuous Shadow strikes and taunt) to 1hko range of ghold and tran. To top it off it forms a neat little offensive core with Doom desire libra and Gambit.
The actual answer was and even though metagross does architectu submitted it, it was after the cutoff and wasn't eligible to be voted on. (bonus point is still awarded though)
Unfortunately, I think at this point it is probably time to retire the project...it has been fun, but I have a major LoA coming at the end of this month for Tyrunt (baby #2) and no teams currently so for now this is indefinitely? paused but we shall see :(
I appreciate all of y'all for doing this with me and I had an amazing time, but looks like we're blasting off again...
