I kinda feel like Rhyperior might be debatable against Rotom-S due to the burn, pain split, and the inconsistent damage of Rock Blast? But that'd be harder to calculate and I'm far too lazy to crunch it.

Why does everyone invest in full HP for AV Rhyperior? You get more SpDef out of SpDef investment...

It gets Switcheroo'd and gets Choice-locked into Calm Mind, since Delphox outspeeds?
You are right, I should not be allowed to post on 4 hours of sleep. Apologies friend.

...Actually wait a minute. If I'm not mistaken, trick/switcheroo-ing a Choice item doesn't have an ex post facto effect, unlike Encore. Wouldn't it lock the user into the move they choose that turn? Or can someone confirm this for me?

It locks the move I would use next turn ya.

If you go with Switcheroo
+1 4 SpA Choice Specs Pixilate Sylveon Hyper Voice vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Delphox: 153-181 (52.3 - 61.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252 SpA Delphox Fire Blast vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Sylveon: 99-117 (25.1 - 29.6%) -- guaranteed 4HKO

If you don't
252 SpA Choice Specs Delphox Fire Blast vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Sylveon: 147-174 (37.3 - 44.1%) -- 100% chance to 3HKO after Leftovers recovery
+1 4 SpA Pixilate Sylveon Hyper Voice vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Delphox: 102-121 (34.9 - 41.4%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

So Delphox still wins cuz outspeed if you don't go use Switcheroo and I CM on the switch. +0 Hyper Voice is a 4HKO.

You didn't factor in the fact that Calm Mind boosts SpDef one stage on the "No Switcheroo" turn.

252 SpA Choice Specs Delphox Fire Blast vs. +1 252 HP / 212 SpD Sylveon: 111-132 (28.1 - 33.5%) -- 93.7% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery

In which case I was right, and we'd still be on Sylveon I should really just go to bed
