I ended up using the following:

Weakness Policy
Dragon Claw
Earthquake
Dragon Dance
Roost

It gets walled by Togekiss, but it's done very well in the Maison.


Yeah, I can see that working. Togekiss and Shedinja are the only things that can stop it. I do think losing the Thunder Punch might suck a bit, though.

And now I'm reconsidering Hurricane on Noivern. The accuracy scares me, and the super-effective coverage only shifts by about 40 mons with Boomburst. Is there anything that I really need to hit with a Flying move to deal with?

Infiltrator doesn't bypass Protect like Boomburst does.

Yeah, you're right. Guess it is kinda redundant with infiltrator then.

So with Boomburst being 140 BP with 100% accuracy, and Hurricane being 165 BP (with minor type coverage) but 70% accuracy, people are still in favour of Hurricane? I know Focus Miss is a Thing, but isn't that accuracy an issue?

I usually have Air slash instead. I'd rather not keep Hurricane as there may be a dire time you'd want it to land.

Thought about that, but that's only really good if I still have my Specs.

I use:

Draco Meteor
Flamethrower
Boomburst
U-Turn (Might change for Hurricane or Air Slash)

My Switcheroo is non-negotiable, so I can't use that set.

Hurricane with no rain is risky if you want consistent wins.
