Unlike Gothitelle, we can't really compare Reuniclus's design to a previous Pokemon species, although he does look a bit like a less angular Rotom. Where Gothitelle leans more toward Special Defense, Reuniclus hits hard with a base 125 Special Attack – Calm Mind is a must to boost its Special Attack even further. Once your Reuniclus is nice and calm, go for a good STAB like Psychic or Psycho Shock.

Despite boasting two brand-new abilities, Overcoat and Regenerator, tried and true Magic Guard is still your best bet. Its low Speed begs for a Trick Room strategy too, and if you decide to go for Trick Room you can split your EVs between boosting its already great Special Attack and bolstering its HP and defenses.
