|EV Spread||HP 252 / Def. 252 / Sp. Def 4|
|Final Stat Values||HP 357 / Def 62 / Sp. Atk 55 / Sp. Def 126 / Spd 70|
These values are from base stats and ideal EVs, excluding external factors.
This build is an extremely tanky one, especially with the Eviolite in tow. And while Chansey has a low base Defense stat, you can make up for it with 252 EVs in Defense and the Eviolite.
|HP, Def||Can withstand a Max Geyser from Life Orb Gyarados even after 1 boost from Moxie|
|Def, SpDef||Can withstand Max Darkness from Hydreigon 3 times and stall out its Dynamax|
Placing EVs in its low Defense is a given, and for the remainder, you'll need to choose whether to focus on HP to handle more Physical opponents, or Special Defense to handle more Special opponents. Consider the strengths and weaknesses of your team to decide which is best.
|Counter||A viable physical move. Be careful not to use it with Minimize.|
|Defense Curl||A status move that can buff up Chansey's low defense by one stage.|
|Minimize||A status move that increases evasion by two stages. Be careful not to use it with Counter.|
With the help of its bulkiness, Chansey can be used to waste your opponent's Dynamax turns. Use Counter when you predict an incoming physical move and tank any special moves.
While Chansey is immune to Ghost-type moves, it won't be able to attack back, so disable the Ghost-type with Thunder Wave, use Stealth Rock, then switch out.
While Chansey can boost its defense with Eviolite, it's still its weakest stat, so focus fire with physical moves.
