    Hawlucha has proven to be a really dangerous threat so far for me, even against OU. He has already swept twice by setting up on walls with Sub, SD, and a Sitrus Berry, which allowed him to tear through teams with +2 Acrobatics and High Jump Kick. The counters it does have are generally taken out with a mix of Specs Exploud which destroys a lot of the metagame, including ghost types like Aegislash, and Scarfed Garchomp, which is a real threat on its own, outspeeding generally everything. The 20 HP EVs let him Sub exactly 25% HP, which activates Sitrus/Liechi Berry much easier.

    The one major concern I have about him is Sitrus Berry vs. Liechi Berry. So far I've only run Sitrus on him, which lets him activate Unburden earlier and with more HP, but I feel that running Liechi Berry could set him up more securely with more attack to score important KOs, or get an attack boost on Pokes that don't allow it to use Swords Dance, but that comes at the cost of being bait for priority users. Which one is better for this set?
    I've always used Power Herb and Sky Attack over a berry and Substitute, so I wouldn't know in practice, but in my opinion Hawlucha is really too frail to be taking many hits. If something gets you with a neutral STAB as you try to Sub, you might be left below 25% and have wasted a turn. So Sitrus is better just for that safety cushion, as 2 Subs or one hit will activate it instead of needing 3 Subs or a risky hit. In practice it might be easier to get the Liechi off safely, I don't know. Hope this helps. :)

    Thundurus-I @ Life Orb ** BAD BAD BAD
    Trait: Prankster
    EVs: 4 Atk / 252 Spd / 252 SAtk
    Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef) / Hasty Nature (+Spd, -Def)
    - Thunderbolt
    - Knock Off
    - Hidden Power [Ice]
    - Focus Blast

    alright so uh
    this is obviously a sort of lure for lati@s. it's not a very exciting set but knock off + tbolt can 2hko 252/0 latias after sr so that's interesting i guess. yeah no twave is lame i guess but it's whatever. use hasty or naive. it's whatever. yeah, i'm done.

    Ambipom @ Silk Scarf
    Ability: Technician
    Jolly Nature
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    ~ Fake Out
    ~ Last Resort


    And that's it. It could work, perhaps. Sure, the lack of U-Turn hurts, but oh my, you flinch them with a STAB, technician and silk scarf boosted Fake Out, and then they eat a 140 damage attack to the face, also boosted by STAB and Silk Scarf. And even if you switch out, it's certain that you'll be able to use Last resort again without much worry because Fake Out has +3 priority and flinches. The two moves complement each other perfectly. Life Orb can work too.

    I want to run physically offensive Mamoswine on an offensive team, and my questions are:
    1) Adamant or Jolly?
    2) EQ/Ice Shard/Icicle Crash and Superpower or SE?
    3) CB or LO?

    Also, are Choice Scarf and Blizzard viable on Mamoswine?

    1) Adamant
    2) Superpower
    3)LO

    Scarf: yes Bluzzard: No

    Although I'd say that the best Mamo set is not that, but

    Mamoswine @ Life Orb
    Thick Fat
    Naive/Naughty
    240 Atk/16 Sp Atk/252 Speed
    ~Earthquake
    ~Freeze Dry
    ~Ice Shard
    ~Stealth Rock

    Which 2HKOes defensive Rotom-Wash, Mamo's most common switch in, as well as things like Quagsire and Kingdra.

    But isn't Fighting redundant with Ground? What is Superpower for?

    And why not run a CB?

    Mamo has great coverage and nobody likes being Choiced into EQ when a Flier comes out and you can't use that nice, powerful Icicle Crash that would've been great if you hadn't had a Band.

    What moves should I use on ScarfMamo, if I even should run that-EQ/Icicle Spear/SE/Superpower?

    How good is Mamoswine in OU in general?

    I'd say he's VERY good. I use him a lot and his Thick Fat ability paired with his good speed and attack make him a favorite choice on my team. He kills a lot of threats I do not like to see.
