Granbull, eh? This guy is unusual. on the plus side, 120 Atk and 90 HP are definite selling points, but 75/60 defenses and 45 spd really let it down. SpAtk isn't too good either, at 60, but no-one cares about that one anyway.
It has Intimidate, Quick Feet and Rattled. Intimidate really is its best one, although Rattled can be used to bolster the speed to usable levels, as it resists two of the types that activate it. Quick Feet shouldn't be used. If it gets statused, the speed won't help. You're screwed anyway.
Physically, Play Rough is a must, vicious STAB with the added bonus of potentially lowering their Atk. Otherwise, EQ, Stone Edge, Outrage, Iron Tail, the elemental punches and fangs, Crunch, Close Combat, Payback, Superpower, Feint Attack, Wild Charge and Brick Break. Massive coverage selection, but limited by the speed. Specially, Shadow Ball, Hyper Voice, Dazzling Gleam, Thunderbolt, Solarbeam, Flamethrower/Fire Blast and Focus Blast are choices here, although they shouldn't be used. It's like a physical Alakazam set, possible, but not plausible. For status moves, it gets Roar and Metronome as it's main plausible threats, although Roar is more niche, and Metronome is hazardous at best, with the Splash chance.
Ain't nothing but a hound dog
252 HP, 252 Atk, 4 Spd
Simple set. The only setup Granbull can get is from BP, or Trick Room, as it's too frail to set up alone. Hit as hard as you can with the time you've got. EQ covers the weaknesses, Wild Charge hits Skarm heavily, CC just hurts anything it isn't resisted by.
Fairly useful in a TR team, but EQ weakness isn't great. That and you speed tie with Golem...
+New typing, makes it usable
+Massive physical movepool
-Speed tie with Golem, the epitome of slowness.
