Physical Sweeper Wimpod (Wimp Out)

Wimpod is an awesome Physical Sweeper. It is meant to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Wimpod is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield but Eviolite changes that. 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 Wimpod from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out. Life Orb boosts the power of Wimpod's damaging moves by 1.3x but it then loses 1/10 its max HP immediately after the attack. With Wimp Out, Wimpod switches out when it reaches 1/2 or less of its maximum hp. Facade's damage doubles when the user has a status affliction.

Leech Life is a physical STAB-boosted 80-base power Bug-type move (Wimpod recovers 50% of the damage dealt).
Waterfall is a physical STAB-boosted 80-base power Water-type move (20% chance to flinch the target).
Facade is a physical 70-base power Normal-type move (power doubles if Wimpod is burn/poison/paralyzed).
Assurance is a physical 60-base power Dark-type move (power doubles if target was damaged this turn).
