Tyranitar (M) @ Smooth Rock
Ability: Sand Stream
Tera Type: Rock
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Earthquake
- Crunch
- Stone Edge
- Thunder Wave

if you are using a Tyranitar it would be pretty lame not to max out it's spD, because sand rush gives it x1.5 spD
it would be a waste to use any points on DEF because you get less overall defense and because chances are he will be attacked by a special attack
likely water. even if it gets hit by an earthquake which is physical the opponent is likely to not have stab,

and even in the off chance he dies you can pair him with a Houndoom for 300 last resort attack couples with choice band for a x1.5 boost.

Tyranitar also has massive ATK states.

I would have prefered tyranitar to look like a Steelix, but that's a different topic.

you may be wondering : why not max the fuck out it's spD with careful nature?

because if you couple it with a houndoom you want tyranitar to have max ATK so as to leave some sand storm for houndoom.

you also have a chance to 1 hit ko your opponent and take 1 less hit overall.
you are gonna get hit likely at least once due to low speed, but +29x1.5 has no added advantage anyways if you take an extra hit,
and waste sandrush in the process.

also notice the smooth rock, it gives an extra 3 turns of sand rush.
