    Hail has officially been unbanned in UU, so we can get this challenge going again! Zarel should have the regular ladder reinstated shortly with rankings preserved, so you don't have to worry about losing any progress you made before.

    The challenge will end on December 16th at approximately 11:59 PM EST.

    To my knowledge this challenge had a total of two people actively participating on the ladder. Including me (and SpareAacount who was basically winning this challenge until the last day). Not to mention the almost complete lack of discussion but ok I like winning still C: and I did get pretty high on the ladder (almost 1950).

    My team is below. Choice teams are almost always very weak to Bisharp and Honchkrow for pretty obvious reasons - an almost no risk sucker punch combined with subs make life hard for me. Regenerator users are very useful for the team because all the switching you have to do, especially the bulky ones so you actually have something to switch into when you lose momentum (because you will lose momentum). It is almost impossible to deal with stallrein. Snorlax is an extremely important member of monochoice imo since it traps Chandelure which would otherwise limit you from using fire fighting and normal moves. also gets mismagius so you can more freely spam ground moves. I find that bulky choiced users are almost always better than frail ones since the amount of switching you will be doing is Very high.
