    First of all, I want to say that my English is a bit broken, so I'm sorry if I don't express correctly.

    One of my favorite pokémon has always been Mismagius and I've been using it for years at OU and it's the Tier I've played most.
    But I was thinking about how my favorite pokemon works in his tier, so I made a team that I just improvised on the fly for this tier and I would like the people who play in the NU to give me advice to improve the team. I'm willing to change the team, even if are drastic changes, except for Mismagius, she can't go under any circumstances, but maybe I can change the moveset.
    At the moment I have a 5W1L streak with this team and unfortunately I just kept this replay, maybe as I play I'll save a couple more if I remember.

    Here is a pokepaste link of the team.
    https://pokepast.es/9a9473fb8de728d9
    And here is the link to one replay. (when I play more I'll edit the post and put them here)
    https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7nu-798451163

      I'd say you're doing pretty well; keep it up!

      You could consider substituting Dazzling Gleam for Power Gem for more super effective coverage.

      I'm guessing you're investing EVs in DEF to help utilize Rough Skin?

      You're sure you don't want to run Prankster support, considering you have plenty of attackers. Tailwind, for example, can support Mismagius' (assuming she's your core Pokemon) & overall team sweeping capability.

      Are the HP & SpD EVs there to help deal with super effective Fire attacks whilst using Magnet Rise?

      Looks good to me!

      Why the EVs in SpD?

      I am going to guess you're using 0 ATK IVs to minimize Foul Play damage?

        It's a great idea!

        tbh, I only took the remaining 256 EVs and divided them between HP, Def and SpD lol

        I guess I can go testing

        exactly, or to use Shift Gear, whichever is more convenient


        Looks good to me!

        the evs are an error that I forgot to correct, the correct thing is 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD
        and the IVs is for Foul Play, yes

        Thank you very much for your comment and suggestions, really <3

        In my opinion if you are going for life orb Vikavolt, you might want a faster spread and agility. Otherwise, I'd suggest a choice specs set (assuming you won't use specs Whimsicott as the previous poster suggested). Here's a set that's found on smogon:

        Vikavolt @ Choice Specs
        Ability: Levitate
        EVs: 176 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpA / 76 Spe
        Modest Nature
        - Thunderbolt
        - Bug Buzz
        - Volt Switch
        - Energy Ball

        Additionally, I think Mismagius could utilize Dazzling Gleam, but I agree that Power Gem might be a better option. I'd also replace Energy Ball with a supporting move such as Taunt, Will-o-Wisp, or Substitute. Energy Ball currently doesn't add much for Mismagius's set.

        Finally, I love bulky Druddigon, but I find Assault Vest restricts Druddigon's extensive capabilities. It's a great fire-type check, but I think it could be that without Assault Vest. Utilizing leftovers and Stealth Rock with Mold Breaker would help with hazards to aid your Mismagius in its Nasty Plot sweep. Another set I use that is from smogon:

        Druddigon @ Leftovers
        Ability: Mold Breaker
        EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
        Impish Nature
        - Stealth Rock
        - Glare
        - Dragon Tail
        - Earthquake

        Mold Breaker is nice to set up rocks against Xatu, as well as hit any Levitate Pokemon with EQ.

        Hopefully, this was helpful! I do like your team!
