      I do not agree that RP is Diancie's best set, I've been advocating this since early October when I was the only one using it and everyone considered it a gimmick or the poorest choice. RP minimizes too much MDiancie's presence in-game since most builds remove speed EVs in favor of "bulk" which unfortunately takes too much damage in the process, worse yet she lacks high BP moves to fully exploit it.
      1. Machi
        I do feel Protect + 3 Attacks is her best set since you immediately gain the benefit of post-mega without taking damage in the process, and more importantly allows you to actually exploit choice users that often come in to revenge MDiancie. Best part is it often lures things like Bisharp/Heatran/Keldeo (Specs) variants into staying in and having to take the MB/EP as a result.

        Hm, thanks very much for the insight! I've been using Protect a bit recently and I like it a lot more than RP/CM so yeah, I really don't think it's the best set either

        Be sure to invest in some Atk EVs so you can smack those annoying MVenus or Clefable that try to switch in with impunity. Not that much usually 40 or so is good so you can deal usually in the 40% range.

      Which move set do you recommend on Mega Altaria? I saw you used a Timid: Hyper Voice/Fire Blast/Earthquake/Roost set a little while ago. Does that still work?
      1. Albacore
        Yeah, that's one of its best sets, though most people prefer Modest for extra power

      Hey, Question about your Offensive Celebi spread in underrated threats. Does 96 HP / 252 SpA / 160 Spe cover anything specific, or is that just for a good mix of bulk and speed with maximum power?
      1. Albacore
        It's basically max SpA, enough speed to outspeed Adamant Excadrill out of Sand, and then the rest invested in bulk.
