Eviolite Fletchinder surprisingly good for support.

Fletchinder @ Eviolite
Ability: Gale Wings
Level: 50
EVs: 152 SDef / 200 Def / 104 HP / 52 Atk
Careful Nature
- Aerial Ace/Quick Guard
- Will-O-Wisp/Quick Guard/Toxic
- Tailwind/Toxic
- Roost

It can take special and physical hits well off the bat and provide priority tailwind support to ensure it gets Tailwind up, even if double targeted.
Priority roost removes its Electric weakness and puts a damper on its rock weakness, letting it survive longer once it gets up a Will-O or a Toxic.

I'd run Toxic for a singles wall and Will-O for doubles support, maybe even replace Tailwind with Toxic if you don't really need the speed support.

You could even toy with the EV spread if you're confident you can Will-O before taking major physical damage and go full HP/S.DEF with an S.DEF nature, but I'm very confident it'll tank at least 3 hard hitting neutral attacks and 2 x2 effective hits. Maybe more, my Braixen wall (if anyone remembers my thread about my Braixen wall, I can now confirm that IT IS AMAZINGLY TANKY, no one expects it) has survived some surprising hits, and it's about as tanky as this Fletchinder build.

I'm preparing to breed one once I finish my Wonderlocke, since I prefer using them in-game instead of on Showdown.
If someone else wants to go ahead and give this set a try before then, feel free and tell me the results.

Eviolite Pokemon have sort of become my thing lately.

With that spread, you have 150 HP, 150 DEF and 150 S.DEF with 100 ATK.
To put that into perspective, that is TANKIER than Rotom-Wash/Heat off the bat.

Let's compare defensive stats

Rotom (Typical special wall with will-O)
157/127/159

Fletchinder (with eviolite running my build)
150/150/150


Where is your Arceus now?

Psh. You can throw all the numbers you want at me, but I learned everything I know from Ash, and he used Electric type moves on ground types and has had his unevolved Pokemon demolish fully evolved Pokemon.
We don't conform to your preconceived type match ups and mathematics.
