Snorlax @ Iapapa Berry
Ability: Gluttony
EVs: 252 HP / 152 Def / 104 SpD
Careful Nature
- Curse
- Facade
- Recycle
- Earthquake
Snorlax is a strong COUNTER to Specs Hydreigon. Draco Meteor let alone anything else barely scratches as you then use Hydreigon as setup fodder.
252 SpA Choice Specs Hydreigon Draco Meteor vs. 252 HP / 104+ SpD Snorlax: 237-279 (45.2 - 53.2%) -- 30.5% chance to 2HKO
252 SpA Choice Specs Hydreigon Dark Pulse vs. 252 HP / 104+ SpD Snorlax: 145-172 (27.6 - 32.8%) -- guaranteed 4HKO
Snorlax can recover easily by using it's recycle berry combo and punish Hydreigon for ever clicking a button by Cursing in it's face. It can do this consistently throughout a game by constantly recovering and as long as Snorlax is present in the game, Specs Hydreigon won't be doing any damage to Snorlax's team whatsoever.

Round 24’s Victim is:

Rhyperior @ Leftovers
Ability: Solid Rock
EVs: 252 HP / 16 Atk / 240 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Stealth Rock
- Stone Edge
- Earthquake
- Toxic / Swords Dance

Hey I think Rhyperior is in a really great spot in this meta and if you think otherwise than fuck you. Rhyperior is excellent rocker currently combining a more solid Electric immunity than total sewage mon Gligar while also being a few and far between Flying resist. Solid Rock lets Rhyperior take some attacks surprisingly well, and if you want to turn up the heat, Rhyperior also mixes in some offensive capabilities with Swords Dance. Rhyperior’s base 140 Attack means its no pushover offensively and after a Swords Dance boost it can muscle through Gligar and Hippowdon alongside other traditional resists. Get your subs in by Sunday ig. faded love can stop nagging me now yay.

Volcanion @ Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 248 HP / 44 SpA / 216 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Steam Eruption
- Flamethrower
- Toxic
- Substitute

Decided to go with a Check this time. Volcanion bops with Steam Eruption and has the cool option of setting up a Sub, simple as that.

Tsareena (F) @ Lum Berry
Ability: Queenly Majesty
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Power Whip
- High Jump Kick
- Rapid Spin
- U-turn

Tsareena is a pretty nice check to Rhyperior for several reasons. It can spin away rocks and threaten Rhyperior out with Power Whip. Tsareena can also U-Turn on any potential switches and gain momentum.
