This build is focused on maximizing Magnezone's Special Attack stat. To make sure it is not wasted, its Sturdy ability prevents it from being OHKO'd, guaranteeing at least one powerful attack against any opponent.
However, be careful of opponents with Mold Breaker ability as it can pierce through Magnezone's Sturdy, making it vulnerable to being OHKO'd.
|Thunder||Alternative for Thunderbolt. Although it is not guaranteed to hit, it is a more powerful Electric-type move.|
|Nature||Bold (+Def, -Atk）|
|EV Spread||HP 252 / Def 252 / Spdさ4|
|Final Stat Values||HP 177 / Def 183 / SpAtk 150 / SpDef 110 / Spd 81|
This build focuses in on Magnezone's naturally high defense augmented with Iron Defense and hitting hard with Body Press. One use of Iron Defense raises its defense by 2 stages so it can both take hits from stronger physical attackers and deal a ton of damage with the Body Press, which uses defense to calculate damage instead of attack.
Adding in Substitute as well can help with handling other Steel-type Pokemon like Ferrothorn or Skarmory.
Magnezone is a formidable opponent against any opponent with its Sturdy ability, which guarantees an opportunity to perform at least one attack.
Also, Magnezone is a great choice for battling Fairy-type opponents.
Using the Indestructible Wall build, Magnezone can deal with other Steel-type Pokemon that are difficult to take down and exist to waste time like Ferrothorn, Skarmory, or Corviknight with its Magnet Pull ability that prevents them from leaving battle.
Since Magnezone is an Electric/Steel-type Pokemon, it has 4x weakness against Ground-type moves. If against an opponent with Ground-type moves, immediately switch out another Pokemon.
Exploit Magnezone's dual weakness with Ground-type moves, especially using Pokemon with Mold Breaker ability to pierce through Magnezone's Sturdy.
・Can pierce Sturdy and take out Magnezone immediately if it manages to attack first
・Resistant/Immune to Magnezone's moves
