Notes: Purugly is one of the two premier Defiant users in the tier. Having access to STAB Fake Out and U-turn allows it to fare excellent against frail offensive foes that can't afford to be chipped down. Sucker Punch gives you a secondary priority to deal with faster threats while Knock Off allows you to handle Misdreavus and other eviolite users better. Purugly preys on catching predicted Defog and Parting Shot from Silvally which boosts its damage significantly ontop of the Normal-type boost from Silk Scarf and enjoys outpacing common offensive non-scarves due to a solid 112 base speed.
