Adamant Nature

Explanation of Set
Hitmontop's average Attack and unimpressive Speed might suggest it would only be useful as a defensive Pokemon, but with access to a slew of priority attacks and Technician to boost their power, Hitmontop is an excellent revenge killer and a nightmare for offensive teams in general.Close Combat is a more powerful STAB attack to use against defensive Pokemon. There are several options for the last slot. Sucker Punch is usually the best choice, as it expands the list of Pokemon Hitmontop can revenge kill to include Psychic- and Ghost-types such as Gengar, Alakazam, and Mismagius, although Pokemon with Substitute or Will-O-Wisp can easily play around it. Stone Edge OHKOes Gengar, Emolga, and Crobat as they switch in and deals solid damage to many Ghost-types; unfortunately, its shaky accuracy and low PP make it easy for opponents to stall out with Substitute or Roost if they manage to come in safely. Bullet Punch adds another priority attack to Hitmontop's arsenal, and while non-STAB Steel-type moves are usually unworthy of a moveslot, Hitmontop does appreciate the ability to reliably hit fast, frail Ghost-types such as Froslass and Mismagius before they can get a Substitute up.
