Sliggoo @ Eviolite
Ability: Sap Sipper
EVs: 252 HP / 168 Def / 88 SpD
Careful Nature
- Curse
- Outrage
- Rest
- Sleep Talk

Tanks absolutely anything Zard throws at it, even being immune to Solar Beam. Can 3HKO with Outrage, but also rest off damage to avoid the possible 4HKO by Focus Blast. Once Focus Blast is out of PP, Sliggoo has no fear.

252 SpA Charizard-Mega-Y Focus Blast vs. 252 HP / 88+ SpD Eviolite Sliggoo: 77-91 (22.6 - 26.7%) -- 30.4% chance to 4HKO

0 Atk Sliggoo Outrage vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Charizard-Mega-Y: 126-148 (42.4 - 49.8%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

I have a question: what counts as "hax"?

If I go for Iron Head with Jirachi, I'm statistically more likely to flinch than not (60/40). Would it be fair to assume that NOT flinching is "hax", then?

(Not trying to take anything away from Chase, him posting Jirachi just reminded me of my question)

If you have to rely on the flinch to actually kill your opponent otherwise your Pokémon faints, it's not a counter.

Victini @ Life Orb

EVs: 96 Atk / 160 SpA / 252 Spe

Jirachi would have to flinch three times in order to win. We're not taking into account luck-based strategies anyway.

Careful Nature
-Earthquake

Even at +6 Atk Stunfisk will be lucky to score a 2HKO with Stone Edge, not that it will last long enough to get to +6 because it will die to repeated Swords Dance boosted EQ.

Wouldn't Freeze Shock be the better move to work the Z move off of because it works off of Black Kyurem's better Attack? You can still use Ice Beam as a safe Ice STAB alongside that.

Anyway:
Volcarona

-Quiver Dance
-Fire Blast
-Giga Drain
-Hidden Power (Ground)
Nature: Timid
EVs: 4 Def/252 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Firium Z
Ability: Flame Body

Volcarona resists Scizor's STABs and can potentially burn it with Flame Body; it then KOs with Fire Blast.
