--> This set is very good, but it isn't quite as good as some of Donphan's other sets because it takes a huge amount of skill to use. Only true Pokemon masters can use this set because it is so tactical. Anyway, onto the set itself. Swagger is the crux of the set. While the opposing Pokemon is to busy staring at its majestic appearance, Donphan skillfully distracts the foe with its legendary Swagger. Then, while the opponent is too confused to attack, Donphan swiftly moves back and forth with Double Team so that the foe can't even hit Donphan. Finally, once it's done messing around with the opponent, Donphan can reveal the other crux of the set: Fissure. Fissure is the best move in the game. It can OHKO every Pokemon ever, except for Donphan itself with Sturdy, because Donphan is so good that it can beat the best Pokemon in OU, Donphan. Finally, Donphan has two options to round out the set. The first is Sandstorm, with lets Donphan tactfully wear down the opponent while also providing it with a Sand Veil evasion boost. Ice Shard is also an option, but Sandstorm usually does more damage anyway. The [=EVs=] and nature are fairly self-explanatory. Because Donphan is so good, it can use as many [=EVs=] as it wants. Serious is the best nature because intentionally lowering one of your own stats is for noobs, especially with a Pokemon as good as Donphan. Donphan is better than that.

--> This set is very good, but it isn't quite as good as some of Donphan's other sets because it takes what makes Donphan such a huge amount of skill to use. Only true Pokemon masters can use this set because it is so tactical. Anyway, onto the set itself. Swagger threat. Rapid Spin is the crux of the set. While Everyone knows that every team needs a Rapid Spinner, as it's the opposing Pokemon is only way to busy staring at its majestic appearance, remove those pesky hazards except for some scrubby Defog trash that no one cares about, and Donphan skillfully distracts is without a doubt the foe with its legendary Swagger. Then, while best user of Rapid Spin in the opponent is too confused to attack, entire game. But the amazingness of Donphan swiftly moves back doesn't end there. It also learns Stealth Rock. No, I'm not joking. Donphan can learn both Rapid Spin and forth with Double Team so Stealth Rock. When you use Donphan, you don't even have to waste a precious teamslot on a sucky Stealth Rock user like Garchomp or Landorus-I. Donphan has you covered. It's just that good. I know what you're thinking: "How could Donphan possibly get any better?" The answer to this question is that Donphan gets the foe best priority move in the game: Ice Shard. When you use Donphan, all of those pesky OP sweepers like Salamence and Noivern can't even hit Donphan. Finally, once it's done messing around with the opponent, Donphan can reveal the other crux hope of the set: Fissure. Fissure sweeping your team. You may be wondering why this set only has three moves. This is the best move in the game. It can OHKO every Pokemon ever, except for Donphan itself with Sturdy, because Donphan is so too good to run four moves. Donphan doesn't care that it you can beat run that many moves because it doesn't even need to. This is because Donphan is without a doubt the best Pokemon in OU, Donphan. Finally, Donphan has two options to round out the set. The first is Sandstorm, with lets Donphan tactfully wear down the opponent while also providing it with a Sand Veil evasion boost. Ice Shard is also an option, but Sandstorm usually does more damage anyway. The [=EVs=] and nature are fairly self-explanatory. Because Donphan is so good, it can use as many [=EVs=] as it wants.

* Some of the summaries for pokémon are delightfully snarky. Take, for example, the entry for [[http://www.smogon.com/dex/bw/pokemon/castform/ Castform]] in Gen V, whose only set offered is... "'''[[DancingBear Everybody Look At Me I'm Using Castform]]'''". Made even funnier by its additional comments.

--> "'''''Other Options:''' You can literally run any type of Hidden Power! Unown has an option for every type and its power knows no limits—other than being hit by any other opposing Pokemon, of course. Unown wouldn't want to learn any other moves anyway, because it does not need them. Hidden Power is all it needs to wreak havoc, cause despair, and spread fear amongst the opposing team. Using stronger moves such as the boring Fire Blast, Hydro Pump, or Draco Meteor would make Unown a little girl who can't fight and likes to risk a miss that could cost you a game. Unown is no gambler.''"
