I've always preferred Giga Drain due to slightly less power but HP restore, and since you've got the investment into HP EVs, Giga Drain could give it a considerable amount of bulk. If Petaya Berry were to be replaced, I think Leftovers could make this a real problem to deal with. Although, depending on the team, I would replace HP Ice with HP Fire, because I can see Pokemon like Scizor or Forretress either completely destroy Exeggutor, or set up with rediculous ease.
    The whole niche behind this is the Petaya Berry/Harvest. Exeggcutor is bulky enough to take a hit or two, then use Trick Room. If it's knocked down to half health, he gets a Satk boost and then the berry replenishes. Leftovers sort of ruins the purpose of it, and same with Giga Drain as Eggy should ideally be below half health at all times.

    I do agree with HP Fire though, especially if it's used in OU. I think Protect is sort of necessary too to try and take advantage of the replenishing berries.
    Oh, that's a good point. Energy Ball would probably work better in that case. Something that has always confused me though is if Recycle is only usable once, or a potentially infinite amount of times. Because if that was the case, you could easily run Leaf Storm, and use Protect to try and get the berry back, in order to regain the stats that were lost from Leaf Storm. Although, I think that getting the boosts and using Energy Ball would still probably be better.
    Thing is, once Eggy has been knocked down to half health or less, it most likely will die the next turn. It comes up to personal preference between Leaf Storm and Energy Ball, but I'm leaning towards LS. Thinking about it though, Protect is pretty mandatory. +2 stab Leaf Storm from a very fast Eggy tears apart a lot of things. Giga Drain has potential if you can heal off about as much damage as your opponent will do to you, or less damage. Another suggestion could be:

    -Trick Room/Psychic/Psyshock/HP
    -Protect
    -Substitute
    -Giga Drain

    Sub/Protect gets you the boosts you need to sweep, but wastes Troom turns. You could go without TR, but then Eggy lacks sweeping potential.

    It could have been in the Sand or had a Choice Scarf on.

    I'm just wondering, for fun, is there anyway that Eevee can fit on a OU team?

    Banded Adaptability Double Edge under Trick Room is the only way it'll be doing decent damage. You could try an Eviolite set with Heal Bell, Wish, Yawn and Toxic or some other gimicky moves if you really wanted to.

    Realistically, it's heavily outclassed by a lot in NU, let alone higher tiers.

    Okay, but I heard that Double Edge is illigal with Adaptability. How about Return?

    Psst, @Angad; and @SharKing; are you there?

    Double Edge is level up, so it is legal. Last Resort could work instead of it too, I guess.

    What would be a good moveset for a conkeldurr with an ev spread of 252hp, 100 defense, 152 Spdefense, and 4 attack? I was thinking something along the lines of drain punch, protect, payback and I can't decide on the forth move. If anyone could give me a suggestion on the fourth move or any other move suggestions to replace previous moves I would really appreciate it.

    If you plan on running a defensive Conkelldurr, you should really just go with 252hp, 4attack and 252 special defense. This is because you can give it bulk up to boost both attack and defensive. With this set you should be running a careful nature along with flame orb and guts. Move-wise you should run bulk up, drain punch,mach punch(allowing you to annihilate hyper offense teams after just one boost) and stone edge(to catch Tornadus on the switch in). Protect is useless because it takes flame orb damage whilst payback loses to stone edge because of the rise is genie usage. The advantage of this set is that it allows you to better set up on bulky pokemon. For example, this conkelldurr is not even 4hko'd by a Vaporeon's Scald after rocks damage.

    Well in competitive play Aggron sucks whilst Tyranitar sees usage because of its ability. So yes I guess.

    This isn't a question for BST, it's very subjective. But Roark indeed has a Tyranitar.
