Giving Arctozol the Expert Belt allows it to deal high damage with super effective attacks. Its ability, Volt Absorb, keeps it from taking Electric damage, and with Freeze-Dry it can go up against Pokemon like Gastrodon and Quagsire without fear.
This build for Arctozolt's main purpose is to outspeed Tyranitar. With Low Kick it can one-shot Tyranitar making it useful in the current meta.
|Icicle Spear||A mult-hit move that can break through Focus Sash.|
|Avalanche||Great for slow Pokemon. If it hits before the opponent attacks it will do less damage, however.|
|Taunt||Effective against Pokemon with status changing moves. Also works for follow-up support.|
Arctozolt's Bolt Beak does double the damage if it hits first so it's great against slower Pokemon. Its range of attacks is also wide, so Pokemon like Gastrodon or Quagsire who cover up their Electric weakness with Ground typing can be easily taken out with Freeze-Dry.
While Arctozolt's range of attacks is quite good, failing to attack first with Bolt Beak or hit the enemy's weakness lowers its damage output significantly and puts it at a disadvantage. Due to this, Pokemon who take half damage from Electric or Ice and can outspeed Arctozolt are the best counters. If they can hit its weakenesses as well this is even better.
