    Calling Infernape out as a Counter.

    As Infernape switches in, Honedge uses Swords Dance.

    Infernape then uses Flare Blitz, which does a maximum of 90.4% to Eviolite Honedge. Honedge responds with +2 Sacred Sword that does 69.6% minumum.

    Honedge can then get the KO with priority +2 Shadow Sneak, which does 46.4% to Infernape (69.6 + 46. 4 = 116%).

    So, countering Honedge (though I guess this counters Infernape too)

    Hippowdon @ Leftovers
    Ability: Sand Stream
    EVs: 252 HP / 144 Def / 112 SpD
    Impish Nature
    - Earthquake
    - Stealth Rock
    - Slack Off
    - Stone Edge

    Hippowdown can 3HKO and recover any health lost. Honedge can barely muster a 5HKO against Hippowdown (same with Doublade who I think was the original intention of Aaron).


    Changing to include a Doublade just in case...

    Swampert @ Leftovers
    Ability: Torrent
    EVs: 240 HP / 252 Def / 16 SpD
    Relaxed Nature
    - Stealth Rock
    - Earth Power
    - Scald
    - Roar

    Swampert 2HKO's with Earth Power. Doublade/Honedge can only 3HKO at +2 (not possible if Swampert switches in and EP's twice).

    Swampert also beats Infernape. It 2HKO's and while Infernape can 3HKO, it can only do so with Close Combat, leading to defence drops that then change Swampert's attacks into a OHKO.

      Not a counter though. Gallade cannot switch into Landorus because Earthquake will break the focus sash and then KO on the second hit. Gallade cannot OHKO this Landorus spread.

      252 Atk Gallade Ice Punch vs. 252 HP / 252 Def Landorus-Therian: 272-320 (71.2 - 83.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

      4 Atk Landorus-Therian Earthquake vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Gallade: 211-250 (75.8 - 89.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

      anyways, to counter Landorus:
