This core is almost exactly like the one I submitted just before USUM, and honestly it's doing the same exact thing for the most part. Mega Diancie can find opportunities to Calm Mind in front of Mega Sableye as well as Gengar under sand. Once Sticky Web can go up, Mega Diancie will outspeed the entire team and after a Calm Mind everything is either OHKOed or 2HKOed:

+1 252 SpA Diancie-Mega Moonblast vs. 248 HP / 148+ SpD Sableye-Mega: 386-456 (127.3 - 150.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+1 252 SpA Diancie-Mega Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Golurk: 327-385 (102.5 - 120.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO
4 Atk Diancie-Mega Diamond Storm vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Blacephalon: 542-638 (219.4 - 258.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO
4 Atk Diancie-Mega Diamond Storm vs. 248 HP / 0 Def Jellicent: 219-258 (54.3 - 64%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
+1 252 SpA Diancie-Mega Moonblast vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Mimikyu: 259-306 (103.1 - 121.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO
4 Atk Diancie-Mega Diamond Storm vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Gengar: 246-289 (94.2 - 110.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock

And here are some calcs of it taking damage:

252 SpA Gengar Sludge Wave vs. +1 0 HP / 0- SpD Diancie-Mega in Sand: 72-85 (29.8 - 35.2%) -- 20.2% chance to 3HKO
252 Atk Mimikyu Let's Snuggle Forever vs. +2 0 HP / 0 Def Diancie-Mega: 111-132 (46 - 54.7%) -- 58.6% chance to 2HKO
0 SpA Jellicent Scald vs. +1 0 HP / 0- SpD Diancie-Mega in Sand: 68-84 (28.2 - 34.8%) -- 3.2% chance to 3HKO


Shuckle's role is pretty self explanatory, just setting up hazards either if Sableye hasn't Mega Evolved yet or after it's gone down. For Tyranitar, the spread allows it to outspeed the Golurk and either break its Sash or just Pursuit trap it. It's basically meant to remove some of the primary threats to Mega Diancie in Golurk and Jellicent. It can also potentially OHKO everything on the team barring Mega Sableye with a Banded Crunch. Here are the calcs:

252 Atk Choice Band Tyranitar Crunch vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Jellicent: 540-636 (133.6 - 157.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 Atk Choice Band Tyranitar Crunch vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Golurk: 482-570 (150.6 - 178.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 Atk Choice Band Tyranitar Crunch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Blacephalon: 666-786 (269.6 - 318.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 Atk Choice Band Tyranitar Crunch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Mimikyu: 241-285 (96 - 113.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock
252 Atk Choice Band Tyranitar Crunch vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Gengar: 602-710 (230.6 - 272%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252 Atk Choice Band Tyranitar Crunch vs. 248 HP / 112 Def Sableye-Mega: 151-178 (49.8 - 58.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock(Mega Diancie always comes in on this so it really doesn't matter)


Hopefully I can do an Ice core at one point :)

Even though the good ol' poison core of Venu+pex+muk easily counters ghost core but I wanted to inculcate the new beast naganadel and so here I am.

Naganadel @ Dragonium Z
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Nasty Plot
- Dragon Pulse
- Sludge Wave
- Fire Blast

Golbat @ Eviolite
Ability: Infiltrator
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Impish Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Toxic
- Defog
- Roost
- Haze

Muk-Alola @ Assault Vest
Ability: Poison Touch
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Knock Off
- Poison Jab
- Shadow Sneak
- Pursuit

Naganadel can easily set up against the passive mons ie Sableye and Jellicent and with a single Beast Boost, it is capable of outspeeding the entire team the entire team.

Next up is Muk-Alola to the core because both blacephalon and gengar have great SpA but are both just Muk-A pursuit baits so it really eases of pressure as naga won't have to worry about gengar switch and can just set up. Knock Off also comes in handy to put pressure on Jellicent.

Mimikyu and Golurk were still huge threats as both Naga and Muk-A are neutral to Mimi's fairy STAB and weak to Golurk's EQ who would surley get one of them with its sash on so it was time to get bat into the team and golbat came because it can snuggle with Mimikyu forever. The passive set because it outspeeds Jellicent so it can easily Toxic before the Taunt and also break Golurk's sash with Toxic while just roosting off Stone Edge damage which is a 3HKO and being slower than Golurk it is in a safe place wrt EQ on roost.Haze avoids setup.

Also as Draco Meteor has SpA fall, Golbat+Muk-A completely run over the offensive portion of the team and can easily deal once the walls are gone.

+2 252 SpA Naganadel Devastating Drake (195 BP) vs. 252 HP / 176+ SpD Jellicent: 463-546 (114.6 - 135.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252 SpA Naganadel Draco Meteor vs. 248 HP / 148+ SpD Sableye-Mega: 297-349 (98 - 115.1%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO
+2 252 SpA Naganadel Sludge Wave vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Mimikyu: 292-345 (116.3 - 137.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252 SpA Naganadel Draco Meteor vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Blacephalon: 508-598 (205.6 - 242.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252 SpA Naganadel Fire Blast vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Gengar: 299-352 (114.1 - 134.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252 SpA Naganadel Fire Blast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Golurk: 283-334 (88.7 - 104.7%) -- 31.3% chance to OHKO

252 Atk Golurk Stone Edge vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Golbat: 128-152 (36.1 - 42.9%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
+2 252 Atk Mimikyu Let's Snuggle Forever vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Golbat: 144-171 (40.6 - 48.3%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
+2 252 Atk Mimikyu Shadow Claw vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Golbat: 108-127 (30.5 - 35.8%) -- 40.2% chance to 3HKO
+3 252 Atk Mimikyu Shadow Claw vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Golbat: 135-159 (38.1 - 44.9%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252 SpA Choice Specs Blacephalon Fire Blast vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Assault Vest Muk-Alola: 144-171 (34.7 - 41.3%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

I vote for my favorite user smub purely because of his skill at Monotype. I feel like despite being an Other Metagame at heart, Monotype has what it takes to put out great Ice users like smub and Romanticist. Whether or not Monotype is actually an Official Tier or not is another story. But being a tier as it is, I feel like it has gotten good representation through users like smub as well as through tournaments like Monotype Winter Premier, Monotype Seasonal, and Monotype Premier League. Hence, my vote goes to smub.
