one question, shouldnt moldbreaker Haxorus with eq be able to take pretty much any steel type?
The only Steel Pokemon Haxorus can't get past is Skarmory, who, thanks to its Steel/Flying typing, resists the Dragon + Ground combo. For that reason, Haxorus can use Superpower over Aqua Tail (or EQ, as Fighting + Ground have redundant coverage) to nail it harder than a resisted Outrage or neutral Aqua Tail. Superpower also helps Haxorus get past Ferrothorn. Furthermore, Mold Breaker only ignores abilities that negate, prevent or reduce damage from attacks; it ignores abilities such as Sturdy and Levitate.
