    Analysis: Sanae Kotiya

    Sanae Kotiya


    Type:
    HP: 95
    Attack: 75
    Defense: 110
    Sp Attack: 90
    Sp Defense: 110
    Speed: 70
    Ability: Serene Grace/Super Luck
    Tier: Fundex OU

    Sanae here has some decent bulk and a great typing, with only Bug-, Poison- and Flying-Type attacks being super-effective against her. The main reason you'd use Sanae over other bulky fundexmon is due to her Signature move, Miracle Fruit. Miracle Fruit works like Acupressure, but gives the user a 25% heal alongside the stat boost. It also has a chance to raise evasion for hax.

    "The Day the Sea Split"
    Sanae Kotiya (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Serene Grace
    EVs: 100 HP / 252 Def / 156 SAtk
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Substitute
    - Hurricane
    - Surf
    - Miracle Fruit

    This set is to be used in rain. Hurricane with Serene Grace has a 60% chance of confusion, and always hits in rain. The main job of Sanae here is to set up a Substitute and to spam Miracle Fruit to get useful Stat boosts and heal off the damage from Substitute. This set is Physically bulky, but it can go Specially bulky if you want to. Surf is a strong, reliable STAB boosted by the rain.

    "Priestess of the Wind"
    Sanae Kotiya (F) @ Choice Specs
    Trait: Serene Grace
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Surf
    - Energy Ball / Giga Drain*
    - Ice Beam
    - Hidden Power [Fire]

    This set pretty much writes itself. Surf is a strong STAB move. Energy Ball has a 20% chance of lowering Sp Def with Serene Grace, whilst Giga Drain is useful for healing. Ice Beam has a 20% chance of healing, and hits Kanako and Ryuuguu hard. Hidden Power Fire rounds of the set for decent damage against Hibachi. Sanae isn't fast enough to put Speed EVs to good use, so a bulky spread is used instead.

    "Common Sense"
    Sanae Kotiya (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Serene Grace
    EVs: 224 HP / 104 Def / 180 SDef
    Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
    - Substitute
    - Toxic
    - Scald
    - Miracle Fruit / Synthesis

    60% CHANCE OF SCALD BURN. 'NUFF SAID. Alright then. Bulky Sanae with Status and Stall. Not much else to be said, really. Choose between 50% heal and 25% heal + Stat boost.

    Checks and Counters
    Satan is a big counter. Drought weakens Surf, reduces hit chance of Hurricane and only helps Synthesis sets. Utsuho is strong enough to OHKO Sanae, except in rain. Hibachi can come in on everything not called Scald/HP Fire (Hibachi #2 doesn't mind a Scald). Marisa outspeeds and can beat Sanae with Hurricane/Aeroblast, only having to watch out for Ice Beam/Rain boosted Surf. The King is a nice switch in on Sanae, not taking much damage from her moves and has Magic Guard to protect from Status.

    *Giga Drain will be added later.
