252+ Atk Life Orb Shiftry Sucker Punch vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Hypno: 416-494 (111.22 - 132.08%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Unless Hypno wants to die, it's only options are to switch or use Nasty Plot/Protect. Even if it doesn't switch out, Shiftry's other moves are 2HKO at best.

Braviary @ Leftovers
Trait: Defiant
252 HP / 192 SpD / 64 Spe
- Brave Bird
- Bulk Up
- Substitute
- Roost

Seed Bomb only does 24 - 29% so shouldn't break Braviary's Subsitute (nor hurt it much when coming in) and even so it can roost the damage, as Shifty will likely expect it to attack outright and Sucker Punch it. At that time it can Subsitute, Bulk Up, and leave Shiftry to where it was before and then Braviary can Bulk Up, etc, eventually leaving it at +6 and Shiftry at +6. It doesn't even need to Subsitute because Shiftry's Sucker Punch will do less than half damage most of the time.
