UU Araquanid scheming

    Somehow, I completely overlooked the fact that Araquanid can now have Sticky Web. So now we have something with it that’s much more durable than Galvantula.

    Even if there’s only five months before SwSh hits, it has my attention.

    I’d rather make this UU, simply because the feeling I get from OU is rather...pitiless, for lack of a better word. Not to mention a little constricted in which critters are considered viable...

    That said, I’m tying myself in knots trying to figure out who Araquanid’s best complements are. At the very least, I fully expect to include Mamoswine (Life Orb; Icicle Crash, Stealth Rock, Ice Shard, Earthquake) and probably Heat Rotom. I would like to include something with Leech Seed—I’ve been attracted to it since G1–and the main target there seems to be Chesnaught. And yet, I worry I might be making a mistake there.

    Probably because I’m expecting some dissimilarity to the previous team I cobbled around Galvantula—it, Mamoswine, Chesnaught, Chandelure, Drapion, and Mega Blastoise. Every entry hazard included. (I’ve since been apprised that that’s not advisable.)

    In any case, the planned moveset for Araquanid is Liquidation, Sticky Web, Magic Coat, and either Lunge (further crippling) or Leech Life (some recovery). Item is still undetermined.

    So, at the very least, what are good UU aides for such an Araquanid?
