    Real thing here is agility vikavolt, as if it sets up anywhere, the team basically gets 6-0'd, especially with electrium-z to reduce knock off damage. Persian-A is here because a core has to be 2 mons, and cause it lures in, and weakens hitmonlee. Failing that, it lures in Probopass, which literally can't damage Vikavolt.

    The team doesn't have a Flying and Fairy resist. Scarf Braviary deals with every mon bar Slowbro, Whimsi deals with Slowbro and throws Moonblasts. They also form a nice u-turn core together.

    its a team with no flying resist and no scarfer vs dodrio with whimsi to deal with bro better, get momentum and chip with the utility of healing dod with z memento. not much else to say, pretty straight forward lol

    Get rocks up, keep rocks up (thats what the tomb is for, also has a solid match up, but mainly there to spinblock), Grassium Z on Virizion is to break bro at +2. Vanilluxe also looked spicy because it also bops everything bar Incineroar which gets worn down and Cryo which you can run Flash Cannon for, but ulimetely I think just about anything with Virizion breaks this team, because Virizion kinda does it single-handedly. Important to note that Torterra cannot really do a whole lot of damage back to Virizion.

    Before I saw this team, i played neomn who happened to be using this team. I didnt save the replay because I didnt know it was Break This Team yet, lol. Contrary to neomn's belief, it was not Virizion that broke this team -> it was Emboar.

    Emboar OHKOs Torterra, Hitmonlee, Mismagius, and Crygonal with Flare Blitz.
    Emboar OHKOs Hitmonlee, Cryogonal, and Incineroar with Superpower.
    Toxic Cripples slowbro and makes it easier to clean up later -> also forcing it out a few turns later.

    Choice Scarf allows Emboar to revenge kill any of the listed threats with only mild prediction required - clicking flare blitz is almost always great as if incineroar comes in it still doesnt appreciate being worn down.

    Slowbro is the only thing stopping Emboar on this team, and while in my specific game with neomn Virizion is what fainted it, it was only because virizion crit.
    While Virizion is an amazing part of the team I used, it normally doesn't have the sheer power to break through Slowbro.

    Sceptile is an amazing force with emboar against this team, as nothing wants to switch into it. The only things that can take a Specs Leaf Storm are Cryogonal and Incineroar - both are OHKO'd by Focus Blast. Hp ice, a standard on Sceptile, OHKOs Torterra with ease (if leaf storm already doesn't).

    These two mons have what it takes to Break This Team.

    Edit - was told emboar doesnt one shot torterra but still is doing 80-94 which is still damn good

    ignition (Emboar) @ Expert Belt
    Ability: Reckless
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
    Adamant Nature
    - Flare Blitz
    - Superpower
    - Wild Charge
    - Sucker Punch

    rebound (Golbat) @ Eviolite
    Ability: Infiltrator
    EVs: 252 HP / 152 Def / 100 SpD
    Impish Nature
    - Brave Bird
    - Taunt
    - Toxic
    - Roost

    EBelt Emboar smashes this team in 2, and can even switch in on Cryo and Incineroar as well as predicted Rocks/Wood Hammer from Tort. The best countermeasure available is doubling between Tort and Slowbro and hoping it dies to recoil and/or doesn't outpredict you, or sacing something and revenging with Lee -- which is where Golbat comes in. "Why would you ever use Golbat without Defog," you ask? Well, because this and quite a few other common balance builds are quite weak to Taunt+Toxic/Super Fang stallbreaker Bat, and it comes in on Lee and Tort and annoys the hell out of this team, whittling and even 1v1ing Slowbro. The given spread avoids the 2hko from both Psychic and Psyshock Slowbro, as well as from Cryogonal.
