Hello my friends, it is I, w2. Today, I'm going to show you a build made to crush through the OU metagame, with a Pokemon most people would never expect to see outside of being a ride Pokemon. Its my boi Tauros. This bull with anger management issues is perfectly suited to begin its life on the big stage, and my friends, it does it well;Thanks to the Generation 1 VC of course. A big plus for this also? Tauros fits in most overhead storage bins.

 Now that we have that out of the way, we will move on to what makes my Tauros set so special. My Tauros features a set up move hardly seen on the battlefield; Work up. Work up boosts Tauros' attack, and special attack 1 stage each. This allows Tauros to get the upper hand on your opponents switches, and prepares Tauros to sweep the game. Body Slam, is Tauros' most accurate STAB move, with the most power available that is boosted by the ability Sheer Force, making it hit harder than Return. Available via TM in Gen 1. Our next move will be Earthquake, for a simple reason. Steel, and Rock types. Earthquake is a powerful ground type move which is a staple move type to have on any normal type. Though it is not boosted by Sheer Force, Earthquake's high base power will break through rock types such as Tyranitar, and Terrakion, aswell as most steel types you will find. Speaking of steel types, that brings us to our final move. Fire Blast. Fire Blast is an essential move to break through walls such as Ferrothorn, Forretress, Celesteela, and Mega Scizor. At +1, Fire Blast boasts an impressive chance to OHKO a standard Ferrothorn set, and will OHKO Max SpD Mega Scizor after stealth rock damage. With 4EV's in SpA, at +1 Tauros has an impressive chance to 2HKO Celesteela, a pokemon who you will find very often. Should you find yourself with enough fire coverage on your team to deal with the likes of Ferrothorn and Scizor, I recommend Ice Beam. Ice beam is a nice move to abuse the common intimidate user, Landorus, as well as defeat common Dragon Pokemon such as Salamence, and Defensive Garchomp. Ice beam will OHKO Defensive Landorus at +1 thanks to work up, while also resetting your lost attack stat from Landorus' Intimidate, Salamence is also OHKO'd after stealth rock without the need of work up, defensive Garchomp at +1 will also be OHKO'd.

 When using Tauros, I recommend keeping him safe. Bring Tauros into battle against weakened Pokemon Body Slam is capable of KO'ing, while Pokemon such as Ferrothorn are still on your opponents team. This will allow Tauros to set up using Work Up, as your opponent switches in. It is important to have Tauros supported with stealth rock, and a pokemon capable of defeating ghost types such as Mega Sableye, and to heal Tauros from Burn, or Paralysis. Scarfed pokemon such as Terrakion, are scary threats to Tauros, as well as pokemon such as Mega Lopuny, Mega Latios and Latias, and Mega Gallade, who outspeed, and speed tie with Tauros. Sticky Web Support is appreciated. This has been a Tauros MOTW by w2, good luck wielding your new Moo Cow.
