Counter All The Things!:
-Close Combat/Sacred Sword
Item: Life Orb
EV's: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spd
This set is for Virizion to be a physical sweeper. With a Base 90 Attack, it isn't bad, but it isn't a Haxorus or a Tyranitar. Stone Edge for Ice and Flying Types. X-Scissor for pesky Psychic types and for other Dark and Grass (*Shiftrycoughchoke*) types. Close Combat is great for a physical and it is a filler. Sacred Sword isn't affected by Pokemon who try to boost their defenses and wall your team. Leaf Blade, just like Stone Edge, has a high critical rate, and counters many types. Virizion, the musketeer who can be a special or physical sweeper.
Latias and Latios resists all of Virizion's STAB moves. Flying types such as Gliscor can switch in to X-Scissor or other Bug moves Virizion can use. Foretress walls it and Virizion can't do much without a Partner, as Foretress can resist a ton of moves Virizion can pull. Pison types like Muk and Weezing can absolutely ruin Virizion. Weezing can Flamethrower and Will-O-Wisp Virizion, not to mention Gunk Shot or Sludge Bomb. Muk's common Minimize/Slude Bomb set is what keeps Virizion up at night. Froslass, Beartic, and other Ice types can take advantage of Virizion's Ice weakness. Especially Beartic can use Icicle Crash to OHKO due to the musketeer's Base 72 Defense stat.

If you want me to do a Black or White Challenge, just tell me. I get bored.
