Good Coverage And Stats
Inteleon's strength is its high base 120 Speed & 125 Special Attack. Fairly decent move coverage allows it to be a threatening presence against many Pokemon, especially powerful Fire threats like Charizard, Heat Rotom, and Arcanine.
Access To Max Airstream
Inteleon's access to Air Slash makes him a good candidate for Dynamaxing. If he does so, he can supplement his speed and get the first hit on many targets which would normally outspeed him.
Customize Your Moveset
We strongly recommend Hydro Pump and Air Slash for all builds, but the remaining two moves can be adjusted to your liking. Ice Beam is usually a safe bet, as is U-Turn, but there are many alternatives you could take for coverage.

How To Play Against Inteleon
Bring An Assault Vest
An Assault Vest user will be one of the easiest ways to switch in on Inteleon, as it raises Sp.Def and will prevent you from taking major damage.
Watch Inteleon's Health
Inteleon's ability Torrent causes it to do more damage when at or below 1/3 HP. Try to avoid whittling down its HP slowly. Plan out your damage carefully and watch the 33% threshold.
