Hey everybody, the OU tiering council has chose to suspect test Dracovish.

Dracovish is a typical hazard in the Overused metagame considering that the start of generation. With utilization of Fishious Rend, an 85 base power move that doubles in power when attacking very first (including on switches), Dracovish is becoming one of the more fearsome wallbreakers into the OU metagame. As a result of Fishious Rend’s power that is absurd coupled with Dracovish’s cap cap ability, Strong Jaw, Dracovish can perform ripping through perhaps the sturdiest Water-type resists. Its amazing wallbreaking potential is becoming centralizing within the metagame that is current where Fishious Rend switch-ins are quite few.

Dracovish operates two main sets into the present metagame: solution Scarf and solution Band. An option Scarf boosts Dracovish’s speed, frequently making certain it’s going to go first, gaining an electrical boost against offensive Pokemon that it might otherwise struggle to beat. The Choice Band set trades the speed and revenge killing potential of the Choice Scarf set for incredible wallbreaking power on the other hand. The set does not have any real counters and is effective at almost 2HKOing the bulkiest Water-type resists, such as for example Ferrothorn and Toxapex.

The option Scarf set is a headache that is absolute unpleasant groups to cope with, outspeeding and OHKOing common Pokemon that will normally simply take basic assaults, such as for example Togekiss and Jirachi. Solution Scarf Dracovish outspeeds the complete metagame that is unboosted Zeraora and Dragapult, which makes it very hard to check always, as a really quick Pokemon which also functions as being a wallbreaker against offensive groups particularly. Common pokemon that is offensive aren’t getting OHKOed, such as for instance Selection Scarf Hydreigon and Dragapult, aren’t effective at using numerous hits from Dracovish, basically making them become one time switch-ins. Slower pokemon that is offensive such as Kyurem and lifetime Orb Hydreigon, are 2HKOed, so they cannot safely switch into Dracovish at all, and unpleasant teams are challenged to restrict Dracovish from switching in.

The decision Band set is perhaps probably the most wallbreaker that is powerful the tier, shredding through balanced groups which have few Pokemon that may outspeed and revenge destroy it. This set is bewilderingly effective, nearly 2HKOing perhaps the sturdiest resists, such as for instance Ferrothorn and Toxapex. Offensive resists that will behave as a single time switch for solution Scarf sets are not capable of switching into option Band since they are at risk of getting OHKOd with reduced damage that is prior. For almost any non-resist, Selection Band Dracovish is effective at OHKOing the tier that is entire.

Nonetheless, Dracovish just isn’t a perfect pokemon by any means. Dracovish’s middling speed stat means it really is slower than most unpleasant Pokemon while using the Selection Band set and does mean it does not outspeed the quickest threats into the metagame, particularly Zeraora and Dragapult, despite having an option Scarf boost. Because of this, Fishious Rend is not doubled in energy, rendering it quite a bit weaker and failing woefully to do damage that is enough opposing Pokemon. This will also be mistreated by protective Pokemon, such as for example Baneful Bunker Toxapex, that could make use of Baneful Bunker numerous times in a line because of the decreased energy of Fishious Rend even when it fails. Also, Dracovish’s base that is admittedly mediocre assault stat means that its coverage techniques have become poor when compared with a boosted Fishious Rend, rendering it hard to defeat checks like Seismitoad and Toxapex (when using the Selection Scarf set) without forecast. Finally, Dracovish is practically constantly limited when you are choiced, and thus Water Pokemon that is immune can benefit of it well and it will be forecast reliant in a few for the aforementioned match-ups or stopped by Safeguard.
