QSNS recommended DS Koko with setup. I added onto the idea by adding a heavy TR mode with Mew and Snorlax. Mew was designed to set up TR and Transform into BD Snorlax with Screen support, which ended up exactly playing out the way I thought it did. Disable Mega Gengar and DD Zygarde works out of TR and makes good use of the screens, and Azu was there because I knew I wanted a secondary wincon, though I knew with the structure of the team it will not boost often, as it needs the HP to check Lando-T and Marshadow.

I knew that a combination of Sleep, Redirection, Trick Room, U-turn, and some way to remove stat boosts were some things I wanted to have on my team to CT L51. I zoned in on the tried-and-tested Garde - Amoonguss core. Not only did it fill out all the prerequisites to CT L51 to bring him out of his comfort zone, it was also a generally strong synergy that I was perfectly happy bringing in case L51 brought a more standard team.

This was yet another match I really had no idea what to bring against, and I thought that I will just bring some Z-TR garbage and bring it down to RNG. This was the Kylecole variant of the Camelroom team, which featured Tapu Fini instead of Hoopa-U which was more standard for Camerupt teams. This came with a few tweaks from the original Kylecole paste: CM Heal Pulse on Fini - a checkmater creation, but I was not fully checkmater enough to try High Jump Kick Scrafty.

This is my variant of rain psyspam. I knew that miltank was probably gonna bring some wild experimental stuff and spend more of his time prepping for Biosci, and rain psyspam is really good at stomping out unpolished builds. Not much to note here because this is a pretty established build, aside from the notable absence of Marshadow and CB Zygarde in its place.

If you have not noticed yet, I was running very low on teambuilding motivation at this point. I basically used 1 original team this far for the tour. Not that I have any issues with stealing teams but I was going through a lot IRL and it felt like a chore to log in and play at this point and I felt really bad because I looking at how much prep effort ABR was putting in and I felt in comparison I was letting down my team by not putting in 100% correct prep but getting lucky and getting bailed or being forced to predict from turn 1, tho it seemed like I do better with recycling established cores instead of trying to innovate. Deo-A has been on our list for a while and this was previously a wilder Lele Deo-A Zard-Y offensive team by QSNS that was objectively better, but after repeatedly getting thrashed in tests, I opted to keep the Mega Zard-Y with a more bog standard core I was more familiar with. I put myself in a worse MU at lead as vs using Deo-A but got bailed out by Overheat dodge. Sry sam:(

This was my second, more original, attempt at Gardevoir balance and this time I took a much more aggressive and underexplored approach. I knew Tapu Bulu was a good core with Garde and was a very underestimated pick. SR Tran, Kyurem-B, Lando-T, and Bulu formed a very balanced defensive core, while Garde and Ghostium-Z Aegislash with Shadow Sneak were there to turn the tables against opposing HO, especially Z-Deoxys psyspam, and were my main sources of damage.

This was a QSNS creation prepping against bulky balance that Demantoid is known to love. Diancie + Volcanion + Ferrothorn was a solid core that does well and can carry SR to put me ahead on switch-heavy bulky balance affairs. SD Lando was also a great idea by QSNS who thought it would be great to pound down defensive builds.

Going into the game I would like to thank my teammate tony, qsns, and my irl friend and my cc1v1 sparring partner aaagy1 for giving me the me the mental fortitude to think 1 game at a time and not think about it as a loss streak, but simply 2 independent losses, focusing on what I did wrong instead of falling into bad vibes. This was my take on Mence-Tar core, with Tyranitar, Salamence, Koko, and Volcanion forming a formidable anti-balance core. Mew is an underappreciated mon. More people should use this. Btw I like this team a lot!

Lele variant of Mence-Tar with Tyranitar, Mence, and Lele. I use semiroom with a TR mode of Hoopa, Amoonguss, and Volcanion. I think the team was just alright, but sometimes plays out a bit too wonky cuz of the 2 middling speed Pokemon that you aren't really sure is gonna go last in TR because of opponents' speed being unknown.

Fini variant of Mence-Tar with Tyranitar, Mence, and Fini. I use Tailwind with Zapdos with Specs Fini and Banded Tar for some hyper offensive stuff and I also use DD Mence to take advantage of the additional pressure. Marshadow's a brokenmon so it's in and Snorlax is a fatmon.


___________________________________________________________________________________________


Most of my Ws came from just using OP mons and established cores and making small tweaks, which I'm OK with. I also wanted to use Steel-type Mega Balance, Hail, Mega-Ttar, Mega Venusaur, and Mega Manectric. The first 3 in particular are significant parts of the metagame that I most definitely wanted to bring at least once, but I did not have enough games to showcase everything :x

I have to thank my team for picking me up, and for a fun tour experience environment.

Thanks all for reading, and if you have any questions on teams feel free to ask!
