Physical Sweeper Combee (Hustle)

Combee is a stupendous Physical Sweeper. It is designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Combee is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield without an Eviolite. 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 Combee from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out. Life Orb boosts the power of Combee's damaging moves by 1.3x but it then loses 1/10 its max HP immediately after the attack. Wide Lens will help improve the accuracy of Combee's moves. This is important since it's Hustle ability lowers the accuracy of it's moves. With Hustle, Combee's attack is 1.5x and accuracy of its physical attacks is 0.8x.
