This set offers a completely different take on Bronzong by abusing its unique capabilities as an offensive Pokemon. These capabilities include the bulk of Arnold Schwarzenegger, more resistances than one can count on their hands, and the blessed combination of Trick Room + Gyro Ball + garbage base Speed. With this, Bronzong becomes a great late-game sweeper and check to offensive teams, while still being able to support its teammates with Trick Room. One important fact about this Bronzong is that it's not the Trick Room Supporter Bronzong. Therefore, you don't need to only use this Bronzong on a pure Trick Room team. The main team support that this Bronzong wants is entry hazard support. Stealth Rock and Spikes can make a late-game sweep much easier, and it helps Bronzong nab some OHKOs that it wouldn't have gotten otherwise. It should also be noted that this Bronzong is possibly one of the best receivers of a CursePass in the game, because CursePassing to this Bronzong is like passing physical Quiver Dances that also strengthen his main STAB. Bronzong's Gyro Ball will hit like a train after a Curse or two, even against Pokemon which resist it.

The item choice can be a very tricky decision on this set, because both have their pros and cons. Be aware that whether you choose Macho Brace or Life Orb will be the deciding factor in Gyro Ball's overall power. Macho Brace reaches 150 Base Power against any Pokemon with 185 Speed or higher. It's more powerful than a Life Orb Gyro Ball until you face opponents with 288 Speed or higher. Life Orb Gyro Ball hits harder after 288 Speed and reaches 150 Base Power against opponents with 377 Speed or higher, at the cost of 10% per hit. It also boosts the power of Earthquake, which can secure a few more KOs that would be impossible with Macho Brace. Macho Brace is the better option if you want Bronzong to take out a larger variety of Pokemon, as Gyro Ball is still very powerful even against slower Pokemon with Bronzong's 63 Speed. Because it reduces the amount of Pokemon that Bronzong is helpless against, while leaving Bronzong's HP alone and making Gyro Ball more reliable, Macho Brace is the recommended option. However, if you really need Bronzong to take out bulky Choice Scarf users, Life Orb can be a worthwhile option.
