    Default Amoonguss

    Amoonguss

    Grass / Poison
    HP: 114
    Attack: 85
    Defense: 70
    Special Attack: 80
    Special Defense: 80
    Speed: 30
    Effect Spore / Regenerator

    Overview:
    -SPORE
    -regenerator makes sure it sticks around
    -great counter for Keldeo, Conkeldurr, and Breloom
    -absorbs toxic spikes
    -outside of countering things and sporing it does little for team support
    -limited offenses makes it set up bait after a spore

    Specially Defensive
    Amoonguss @ Leftovers
    Trait: Regenerator
    EVs: 248 HP / 28 SAtk / 232 SDef
    Calm Nature
    - Spore
    - Giga Drain
    - Clear Smog
    - Hidden Power Ice / Stun Spore

    -with great special bulk it can manhandle rain teams and take on fighting types with resistance
    -can check a ton of stuff with its massive bulk
    -spore, sleep it great
    -giga drain is manatory stab
    -clear smog for breloom and to get rid of boosts on a lot of stuff
    -hidden power ice for dragons, landorus, and gliscor
    -stun spore can be useful on more offensive teams to cripple things after a spore

    -the evs give great special bulk to take on Keldeo
    -28 special attack evs allows it to break Keldeo's sub after 2 calm minds
    -move physical bulk can be used from 30-76, 76 allows it to take 2 +2 bullet speeds from Breloom, in the sand, after rocks
    -black sludge it great for rotom, but be warned that it can be used against you if Amoonguss goes down
    -sludge bomb is just weaker than a super effective HP ice, its strongest move to hit everything else, and can outright 1HKO breloom
    -HP fire can be used to Ferrothorn, Forrytress, and Scizor if need be
    -slowbro makes a great partner taking on dragons and strong physical attackers, while taking on breloom and special attackers for Amoonguss
    -your going to need something else for every other other special attacker that isn't a water type
    -with no recovery outside of switching, a spinner is advised

    Other Options:
    -physically defensive if you need something for Terrakion and other stuff
    -toxic to cripple other stuff
    -synthesis heals... but this is used vs rain
    -seed bomb avoids any keldeo calm mind shenanigans
    -venoshock if you have toxic spikes support.. naw its terrible don't use it
    -protect to scout
    -sunny day or rain dance to troll
    -growth for...lol

    Checks and Counters:
    -pokemon with sleep talk
    -chansey, blissey, and don't care about being asleep, take any attack
    -if you don't mind it being asleep: magnezone, Latias, Heatran, Ferrothorn, Forretress, Skarmory, Ninetails, Jirachi
    -Infernape, Ninetails, Volcarona can scare it out fast
    -Dragonite can come in because of lum berry most of the time
    -Ferrothorn, Forretress, Skarm, and Deoxys-D set up all over it
    -goth fucks over

    celebi cannot take 3 clear smogs and it wont do much to it unless its a sp. def set, so i wouldn't consider it a direct counter.

    also, shadow tag goth does wonders on it with tauntCM
