|MOVESET NAME||RETURNING ALL TO RUIN|
|EFFORT VALUE DISTRIBUTION|
|4 EVS||SPECIAL DEFENSE|
|In this moveset, Runerigus’s main objective is to punish any opponents who attack it directly by stealing their Ability through Wandering Spirit. Runerigus also holds onto a Lagging Tail to give to an opponent through Trick. This would help Runerigus overcome its speedier adversaries because the Lagging Tail always forces the user to move second. After gaining both its opponent’s Ability and Speed superiority, Runerigus can pulverize its opponent through non-contact physical moves like Poltergeist, Earthquake, and Rock Slide. Runerigus must avoid making contact in order to avoid switching Abilities with its opponent. Runerigus also has the option of Dynamaxing to compensate for its HP and enhance the power and effects of its moves. Its STABS turn into Max Quake and Max Phantasm, which can supplement its offense and defense by boosting its Special Defense and lowering the Defense of the opponent. In addition, its Rock Slide becomes Max Rockfall, allowing it to summon a Sandstorm to steadily chip away at its opponent’s HP without taking on the damage itself.|
To support this moveset, however, Runerigus must have a Brave Nature and at least 252 EVs in its Attack and Defense stats. Moreover, it requires a few Special Defense EVs to facilitate its Special Defense.
