ZU (SS) Orbeetle [GP 1/1]

[OVERVIEW]
Despite a rather interesting support movepool, Orbeetle is an overall unviable choice in SS ZU. It suffers from a pretty poor defensive typing and general passivity before setting up. Most of what it can attempt to do is outclassed by more consistent options such as Galarian Rapidash, which has a better typing and ability.

[SET COMMENTS]
This set attempts to make use of Orbeetle's access to both Agility and Iron Defense, making it able to combine these moves with Body Press and Stored Power. However, Orbeetle often has trouble setting up due to a bad defensive typing and is rather passive before it can set up. Galarian Rapidash does a Stored Power sweeping set better due to its better Speed and typing as well as access to Pastel Veil, making it immune to Toxic.

This set attempts to make use of Orbeetle's access to both Agility and Iron Defense, making it able to combo these moves with Body Press and Stored Power. However, Orbeetle often has trouble setting up due to a bad defensive typing and is rather passive before it can set up. Rapidash-Galar does a Stored Power sweeping set better due to its better Speed, typing, and access to Pastel Veil making it immune to Toxic.
