    On Wiki

    [secret]{{pokeheader}}
    {{TOC}}

    ==General==

    -Good hazard layer
    -Not many options
    -Some other shit I’ll add later

    ==Hazards ==
    {{set
    | name = Hazards
    | item = Oran Berry/Eviolite
    | ability = Sturdy
    | nature1 = Jolly
    | ev = 36 HP / 236 Atk / 236 Spd
    | level = 5
    | move1 = Stealth Rock
    | move2 = Spikes
    | move3 = Rock Blast
    | move4 = X-Scissor/Earthquake
    }}
    - Max speed makes it easier to get SR and one layer of spikes up
    - Rock Blast too for STAB, also beats subs
    - X-Scissor hits Slowpoke, Bronzor for some damage, Lileep
    - Earthquake hits Chinchou and Magnemite notably

    ==DWEBBLE SMASH ==
    {{set
    | name = Shell Smash
    | item = Oran Berry
    | ability = Sturdy
    | nature = Adamant
    | ev = 36 HP / 236 Atk / 236 Spd
    | level = 5
    | move1 = Shell Smash
    | move2 = Earthquake
    | move3 = Rock Blast
    | move4 = X-Scissor/Stealth Rock
    }}
    - Has a nice surprise to it
    -Hits very hard, gets up to 34 attack after one boost
    -X-Scissor and SR is a matter of preference, whether you need it to set up SR or get extra coverage
    -Rock Blast and eq cover most threats
    -Jolly isn’t necessary, after one smash it outspeeds anything but scarfed diglett, elekid, or voltorb
    - Oran berry is preferred for the healing it gives


    ==Checks + Counters==
    -Bronzor can switch in and 2hko with Flash Cannon, OHKOing after a smash
    -Natu can bounce back SR and spikes, though it has to be wary of Rock Blast on the predicted switch in
    -Depending on the coverage move on the hazard set, there are a lot of switch ins
    -Ferroseed can switch in on anything and kill with gyro ball
    ==Other Options==
    -Eviolite can be used over oran for the defense, though oran is preferred
    -Knock Off could be used as the last move on the hazard set, but the extra coverage is generally better

    k, finally did this, I am really tired atm, so it is probably full of errors and things I forgot, but it is done![/secret]

    Referring to:
    this should split into two i.e. item = oran berry
    item1 = eviolite

    Yhere are a few of these errors. I hope you fix it, nice skeleton though.

    Looks good, needs a few added extras and the kind of things MX mentioned.
    Drilbur is a pretty good check.
    Staryu donks the hazard set in every way possible, even having the 30% burn chance and spin.

    Looks good, could probably write this.

    I would still slash in evolite with the shell smash set as it helps it more against priority even after the smash it has the equivalent of 0 defense boosts.

    Yeah, I was actually going to not slash it in on either set, and mention it in OO, but I forgot to take it off of the hazard set.

    Imo, mention Protect on the hazards set, so you won't get faked out.

    Alright, I wrote it up and it is on the wiki, I invite anyone who knows what they are doing to go and clean it up, I am no Shakespeare. (read: my writing sucks)
