welcome back mahmz :]
With VGC being a Doubles format this naturally leads to many unique pairings. Cores are made up of a group of 2-3 Pokemon that often possess great synergy with each other. Most teams often start out with a Core that defines the team while the remaining Pokemon help to patch out the core's issues and weaknesses. Often there are two types of cores in VGC being Offensive and Defensive. Offensive Cores are a pair of Pokemon that are able to dish out tremendous damage simultaneously while also having solid type coverage between them to be able to hit as many different targets as possible. Defensive Cores consist of a number of Pokemon that have brilliant typing synergy with each other and can thus handle threats and slowly shut down the opponent's options.
- Make sure your cores include at least 2 or 3 Pokemon.
- Be sure to define whether your core is Offensive or Defensive.
- Please make sure to go into detail about how your core is effective in the current metagame.
- Please be respectful to your other posters n_n
