Special Sweeper Surskit (Swift Swim)

Don't forget before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Surskit is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield without an Eviolite attached. If Eviolite is held by a Pokémon that is not fully evolved, it will raises the Defense and Special Defense of that Pokemon by 50%. Focus Sash helps protect Surskit from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out. Life Orb boosts the power of Surskit's damaging moves by 1.3x but it then loses 1/10 its max HP immediately after the attack. With Swift Swim, if rain dance is active Surskit's speed is doubled.
