Yeah Ill probably take out Facade. Btw, just went up against a guy in a random battle who had a pokemon with Geomancy (raises special attack, special defense, and accuracy x2) and moonblast (Fairy pokemon, forget the name :/) That combination of moves took out my entire squad, so If you have a pokemon that could learn those moves, I highly suggest trying it out (y)

I'll double check in a second, because if it's not I'm definitely putting it on my team.

I've seen people use that, but I usually just knock em out with grass knot.

It depends if they switch out though, you dot have a chance against everything especially SpA sweepers with a nice amount of def.
In your case most likely Espeon

Usually for my sweepers I'll use a type that has versatile moves so that they'll be effective against most types. The thing that will fuck me over is if I get poisoned or paralyzed and only have leftovers to help me recover. That's why I'll usually run recover, rest, or healing wish.

Think of what type has suppereffect on your sweeper and search a counter type attack for type
Also for sweepers, unless it has a priority move, add 252 EVs on Speed

Even if it has a priority move, max speed is important, because if you face another sweeper who has priority moves as well, you're probably gonna get rekt. ):

Well I know, but the chances of that happening isnt really big and I am mainly ware when to switch out in those situations tho
