Special Sweeper Blipbug (Swarm)

Blipbug is an extraordinary Special Sweeper. It's designed to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Blipbug is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield but Eviolite makes it possibly stronger than it's final form. 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 Blipbug from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out. Life Orb boosts the power of Blipbug's damaging moves by 1.3x but it then loses 1/10 its max HP immediately after the attack. With Swarm, at 1/3 or less of its max hp Blipbug's attacking stat is 1.5x with bug attacks.

Struggle Bug is a special STAB-boosted 50-base power Bug-type move (100% chance to lower the foes special attack by 1 stage).
Infestation is a special STAB-boosted 20-base power Bug-type move (traps and damages the target for 4-5 turns).
Recover is a status move (heals your Blipbug by 50% of its max hp).

Sticky Web is a status move (lowers speed of grounded foes by 1 stage on switch-in).
