LC Nymble

Nymble @ Life Orb
Ability: Tinted Lens
Level: 5
Tera Type: Bug
EVs: 228 Atk / 36 Def / 236 Spe
Adamant Nature
- First Impression
- U-turn
- Sucker Punch
- Leech Life

The Grasshopper Pokemon is making a strong First Impression in LC! STAB- and Life Orb-boosted First Impression make Nymble a potent threat to common foes like Toedscool and Deerling, and Tinted Lens lets it revenge kill faster Bug-resistant Pokemon like Mankey without using coverage. U-turn grabs momentum against defensive switch-ins like Glimmet while Leech Life mitigates chip damage from Stealth Rock and Life Orb. Sucker Punch provides secondary priority that can be used on any turn. Tera Bug turns Nymble into a fearsome wallbreaker that can 2HKO bulky foes like Mareanie and OHKO most Choice Scarf users. Eviolite Gastly is one of the few Pokemon that can safely switch into Nymble, so Pokemon that check it like Pawniard make great teammates. Quaxly and Toedscool check Diglett, which can trap Nymble, and can remove Stealth Rock for it.

Consolidate the second and third sentence, bringing particular attention to Tinted Lens. It's why this Pokemon is any good.

I would like another mention of what Nymble hits before Tera, but specifically not the giraffe.

Otherwise this is good to go!
