Physical Sweeper Wynaut (Shadow Tag)

Wynaut is a fabulous Physical Sweeper. It's primary goal is to take down the opponent's team with brute physical power. Wynaut is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield without an Eviolite attached to it. 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 Wynaut from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out. Life Orb boosts the power of Wynaut's damaging moves by 1.3x but it then loses 1/10 its max HP immediately after the attack. With Shadow Tag, prevents adjacent foes from choosing to switch unless they also have this ability.

Counter is a physical 0-base power Fighting-type move (if hit by physical attack, returns double damage).
Amnesia is a status move (raises your Wynaut's special defense by 2 stages).
Splash is a status move (no competitive use).
Destiny Bond is a status move (if an opponent knocks out your Wynaut, it also faints).
