Physical Sweeper Eevee (Adaptability)

Eevee is an interesting Physical Sweeper. This moveset is designed to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Eevee is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield without an Eviolite attached to it.

Focus Sash helps protect Eevee from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out. Life Orb boosts the power of Eevee's damaging moves by 1.3x but it then loses 1/10 its max HP immediately after the attack. With Adaptability, Eevee's same-type attack bonus (stab) is 2 instead of 1.5.
