Nasty Plot Competitive Analysis

Nasty Plot is one of the best stat boosting moves in the game. This move is often ran by special sweepers as it boosts the user's Special Attack stat by two stages.

Be cautious when using Nasty Plot as it only raises the Special Attack stat. Meaning your Pokemon is vulnerable during the turn it uses it. Try and pair it with a redirect user or after Substitute.
