How did you choose your Dark Horse Pokemon for this project?
What lead you to choose the Pokemon you did? Did you have regrets or were you happy with your selection?
I love messing around with baton pass, and I knew Venomoth has decent enough stats to be able to pull it off in OU.
How did you go about building a team for your Dark Horse Pokemon?
Which kinds of teammates did you consider? What factors contributed to the team you created?
My team often changed throughout the process. But one thing I did learn is that Heatran and Keldeo are the best quiver dance receivers from Venomoth, bar none. The set I used for heatran was balloon, with hp grass,fire blast, dragon pulse, and earth power. Keldeo I used a standard calm mind set. Other great partners include, latios, latias, hydreigon, sash alakazam. Also not making your team completely dedicated to bp is vital.
Do you think it is more difficult or less difficult to ladder with a Dark Horse Pokemon? Why?
Does the element of surprise play a factor in your battles? Is it easier to fight with a "highly used"" team or with Pokemon that are less common?
I think in some ways it can be easier. It's actually funny at time because newer players actually thought venomoth was a flying type lol...

Was it easy or difficult? Did having a Dark Horse Pokemon on your team benefit you? What advice would you give to those laddering with Dark Horse Pokemon?
It was easy but took a long time due to annoying sleep powder misses!!!!@!

That many pokemon are perfectly viable with the right team support.
