Galarian Corsola Strengths

Its extremely high Defense & Sp. Def. bast stats allow this Pokemon to become an ideal tank. By using Eviolite you can raise its Defense and Sp. Def significantly. The move Strength Sap also lets it use the opponent's high attack as a source of health recovery.

Night Shade Is Strong Against Substitutes

Galarian Corsola might be in a bit of a rough position if its opponent sets up a Substitute, as it doesn't have very much firepower to break through it. However, Night Shade will always deal 50 damage, making it a good tool for dealing with Substitute. Be careful however, if your opponent has more than 204 HP, you won't be able to break Substitute with just 1 Night Shade.

Dispel Buffs With Haze

The move Haze is essential for stopping opponents from setting up on you with Swords Dance or other buffing moves.

How To Play Against Galarian Corsola

Use Special Attacks

The key with Galarian Corsola is to bring Special Attackers with no Attack investment. This will ensure that Strength Sap doesn't do very much. Pokemon with Dark or Ghost moves are also preferable. Knocking off the Eviolite is also a good bet.

Try Substitute

Substitute will render Will-o-Wisp and Strength Sap useless, and will be hard for Corsola to break. Try to also raise your HP to above 204, so that 1 substitute has 51 HP.
