:ss/Silvally-Fire:
Hottest of the Silvallies
[OVERVIEW]
Silvally-Fire might look appealing to use thanks to a powerful STAB Multi-Attack and good stats all around. However, its vulnerability to residual damage, which includes a weakness to Stealth Rock, lack of reliable recovery, and fixed item slot and ability make it too unviable to warrant a teamslot. As a setup sweeper, Rapidash and Ninetales both eclipse it, with both of them possessing higher Speed, better movepools, and the ability to run actually useful items and abilities like Heavy-Duty Boots and Flash Fire, respectively.

[SET COMMENTS]
Silvally-Fire could muster its decent coverage and stats to become a suboptimal Swords Dance sweeper, able to break teams lacking Fire-resistant Pokemon and threaten Dragon-types such as Altaria and Appletun that other Fire-types fail to beat. Its vulnerability to all entry hazards and limited movepool makes it pale in comparison to preferred Fire-types like Rapidash and Ninetales, which both possess higher Speed and better coverage to target common Fire-resistant foes such as Qwilfish and Rhydon.

However, its vulnerability to residual damage, which includes a weakness to Stealth Rock, lack of reliable recovery, and fixed item slot and ability make it too difficult to warrant a teamslot. As a setup sweeper, Rapidash and Ninetales both eclipse it, with the former sporting better defensive utility in Flame Body and Morning Sun, the latter possessing Nasty Plot and Scorching Sands, and both possessing higher Speed and Flash Fire, granting them far more utility than what Silvally-Fire offers. Other Silvally formes like Silvally-Dark and Silvally-Grass are able to set up more easily and have better synergy with their coverage thanks to their superior typings.Thats too long to say it is outclassed by Rapidash and Ninetales thanks to their superior Speed, movepool, and ability to hold Heavy Duty Boots. Remove the last sentence and try to condence the info in just two sentences.

Silvally-Fire could muster its decent coverage and stats to become a suboptimal Swords Dance sweeper, able to force out Pokemon like Thwackey and Articuno break teams lacking Fire resists and threaten Dragon-types such as Altaria and Appletun that other Fire-types fail to beat. Its vulnerability to all entry hazards and awkward movepool makes it pale to preferred Fire-types like Rapidash and Ninetales, both who possess higher Speed and additional utility options, better coverage to target the most common Fire resists such as Qwilfish and Rhydon, and superior defensive utility in Rapidash' case as well as Silvally-Dark and Silvally-Grass, Silvally formes who are able to wallbreak and clean more easily thanks to their superior typings. the comparison to the other vallies is irrelevant imo.

- Respectively is always separated from the rest of the sentence by commas, so it's never correct to remove those.
- 'Which' clauses also are always separated by commas.
