    This Tyrantrum abuses Strong Jaw Poison Fang (which has a staggering 50% chance to inflict Toxic this gen) and Dragon Tail to spread status and rack up hazard damage. It bolsters its lower Sp Def with full investment and the Assault Vest. It enjoys Sand and Wish support.
    This set is the better of the two. The other set is a worse version of better dragons. You definitely want to take advantage of his great ability.
    Thanks mate, that's actually my custom set while the other is the standard. I designed it for RU but thought I'd throw it out there of anyone wanted to try it in higher tiers.

    I agree. Great staying potential. I'd pair it with a bulky Wish user along the line of Vaporeon or Sylveon. I'd probably run Earthquake and Fire Fang in the final two slots. Gives Tyrantrum the chance to deal with both Ferrothorn and Air Balloon Excadrill. I'm sure that Tyrantrum would love a partner who could throw up Rocks early on.

    Not super confident on Dragon Tail though. I'd rather use Crunch there.

    Dragon Tail is the other staple of the set along with Poison Fang. The point is toxic-shuffling.

    Does he have the staying power to utilize the set well? Based off of your experiences? Moving back to the topic, what team do you use him in?

    Speaking of Tyrantrum, do you guys think Tyrantrum will be better once its HA is released? STAB Head Smash with no recoil sounds awesome to me.

    He does in RU, that's the only place I've playtested him.

    Standard phazing. The only Pokemon that steer from the rest are Slurpuff and Golurk, but I'm sure they were on cleaning duty.

    Another Pokemon I've had a hard time integrating into my team has been Salamence. I was running a mixed set early on in my BBL run and it wasn't really doing much help for me so I ditched it.

    Golurk actually spinblocks and alleviates the Fight weakness shared by Cryogonal, Steelix, and Tyrantrum. Slurpuff also alleviates the Fight weakness and cleans like you mentioned.

    I desperately want to find a way to use Magician Delphox, but can't ever seem to find or think of one.

    I've been using Power Herb+Solar Beam on mine...it's gimmicky so it's hard to recommend but it's a good surprise against Water switches. Focus Sash is a possible option if you can play around priority. Pinch berries or Weakness Policy might work but you'd have to be careful as Delphox is prone to getting OHKO'd.

    Blaziken. I tried to use it but it is too frail and too powerful which results in it killing itself with Flare Blitz or atleast do too much damage to itself.

    Gengar was hard too. Those pokes everyone uses in a good way is the ones I suck with
    You know you are followed...
    You know you are seen...
    You know that your secrets are revealed...
    You know that he is close...
    You know that you can not catch him...
    You know who he is...

    I've heard of people having a lot of fun with Contrary Malamar but I just can't seem to get it to work. I wanna know if anybody here ever had any success with him.

    He was on my Dark Gym team until I finished breeding my Mandibuzz - I never looked back. He was thoroughly mediocre.

    I heard the Banded Superpower set is ok. Otherwise its a pretty bad Pokemon. Not too good of stats. Probably a decent Intimidate sponge.
