    That's more of a check than a counter, as Lele has to risk coming in on a Gunk Shot, which OHKOs it easily.

    As for a counter to Scarf Lele:


    Ferrothorn @ Leftovers
    Ability: Iron Barbs
    EVs: 248 HP / 96 Def / 164 SpD
    Sassy Nature
    -Leech Seed
    -Gyro Ball
    -Power Whip
    -Toxic

    Comfortably tanks all of Lele's attacks, and OHKOs with Gyro Ball

      Not a counter. Sharpedo uses Waterfall on the switch, gets the Speed Boost (or just uses Protect the next turn), and then Mega-Evolves, outspeeds, and uses Waterfall again for the KO. Though I guess gimmepie's Sharpedo is holding a Sarpedonite so it fails to actually Mega-Evolve. But then again the roll from normal Sharpedo Waterfall on Koko is already enough to 2hko.

      Also no one ACTUALLY decided to counter my Greninja set from before, which, by the rules, you are supposed to.
      Quote:
      As mentioned in the previous rule, if the previous poster fails to post a valid counter, you should call them out and post an appropriate counter to what they were countering.
      Team Embrace posted a check instead of a counter, and Nah countered that check instead of countering the 'mon that the check was supposed to counter.

      Thus I will post a counter to the Greninja set and also the Sharpedo set.

      Gren counter:
      Spoiler:
      Moltres @ Flyinium Z
      Ability: Pressue
      EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpAtk
      Modest Nature
      - Hurricane
      - Fire Blast
      - HP Grass
      - Roost
      Lives 2 Gunk Shots always and KOs with Z-Hurricane.


      And here is the set that counters Mega Sharpedo, which is what the next poster should be countering.

      Conkeldurr @ Flame Orb
      Ability: Guts
      EVs: 104 HP / 252 Atk / 152 Spe
      Adamant Nature
      - Drain Punch
      - Mach Punch
      - Knock Off
      - Facade

      Takes any hit and KOs with Mach Punch (cuz it gets burned the turn it switches in).

      Mimikyu @ Life Orb
      Ability: Disguise
      EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
      Adamant Nature
      - Swords Dance
      - Shadow Sneak
      - Play Rough
      - Shadow Claw

      3/4 attacks can't touch Mimikyu and disguise absorbs Knock Off (and even if it didn't your ohko isn't guaranteed). Then Mimikyu outspeeds and OHKOs with Play Rough.

        I'm not sure whether this should be called out or not. Technically it's not a counter by the definition that was linked in the first post.

        It does take a +2 Play Rough in all cases even without the Sash, and has a 93.8% chance to KO after Life Orb recoil. Though if you don't manage to kill, Mimikyu kills you with Shadow Sneak then faints itself due to Life Orb. In that circumstance, you actually lose first because you are the first to faint. I think a more appropriate counter would just be to use something like NeverMeltIce instead of Focus Sash.

        Anyway, I guess I'll post this Empoleon set to counter your Cloyster:
