Ivysaur @ Eviolite
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
- Solar Beam
- Sludge Bomb
- Weather Ball
With the sunlight flourishing, Ivysaur blooms radiantly in ZU! It is a powerful Chlorophyll wallbreaker, as Growth and near-perfect coverage gives it tremendous sweeping power. Thanks to its Eviolite-boosted bulk and immunity to Toxic, Ivysaur can comfortably initiate its sweep by setting up Growth against common Pokemon like Tangela, Palossand, and Sawk. Then, hardly anything can withstand its attacks; Solar Beam and Sludge Bomb are monstrous STAB moves while Weather Ball ignites Steel- and Poison-types, such as Klinklang and Silvally-Poison. Ivysaur relies on sun setters that pivot out, such as Liepard and Uxie. However, Ivysaur struggles against common walls such as Rapidash, Altaria, Articuno, and Uxie. Hence, Ivysaur works best on hyper offensive teams with partners like Shiftry, Leafeon, and Rapidash that can all take advantage of sun and weaken shared checks to overwhelm unprepared teams.
