eh that really isn't too good of a 'counter' as return does a ton at +0 def
(48Atk Guts Ursaring (Neutral) Return vs 4HP/0Def Emboar (Neutral): 56% - 66% (204 - 240 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO.) and if ursaring gets up a sub on the switch then emboar actually dies more than half the time after rocks and def drops: 48Atk Guts Ursaring (Neutral) Return vs 4HP/0Def -1 Emboar (Neutral): 84% - 99% (306 - 361 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO
A counter should be a pokemon which can switch into any of a Pokemon's moves without taking significant damage from any of them and do significant damage back; Emboar doesn't really fit this criteria
nica wants me to post a counter to emboar anyway so:
@ Leftovers
Impish Nature
252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spe
Trait: Regenerator
-Waterfall
-Protect
-Wish
-Toxic
Alomomola takes any of Emboar's weak Scarfed attacks, keeps itself healthy with Wish and 2hkoes with Waterfall or Toxics a switch-in
Spoiler:
252Atk Emboar (Neutral) Wild Charge vs 252HP/252Def Leftovers Alomomola (+Def): 29% - 34% (158 - 186 HP). Guaranteed 4HKO.
0Atk Alomomola (Neutral) Waterfall vs 4HP/0Def Leftovers Emboar (Neutral): 53% - 63% (194 - 230 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO.
