    So with no cresselia, it has come down to umbreon or vaporeon.

    Meowstic just seems to weak

    Arcanine comes with intimidate

    umbreon seems to be the best but being weak to fighting and fairy just makes me look at vaporeon being mostly just weak to rotom-w. what do you guys think?

    arcanine is banned, but reuniclus makes a pretty good helping hand 'mon since it can pair up pretty easily with conkeldurr to make its LO mach punches strong enough to OHKO mega kang and hammer arms OHKO mawile and of course it has access to trick room.

    Azumarill, Hariyama and Clawitzer are also options for Helping Hand, all 3 packing a decent punch as well as defenses, in the case of Hariyama you get to choose between Wide Guard, Fake Out as other support options as well, don't forget Sylveon by extension as a Eeveelution also gets Helping Hand.

    Azumarill has better things to do than helping hand but it is an option and admittedly not a bad one if you really feel you can spare the move slot.
    The best one right now imo is probably Reuniclus. Helping Hand and Trick Room makes him great team support and he has two amazing abilities letting him pack a punch or go bulky with no fear of spore. Plus he's just adorable!

    Cress ran helping hand mostly as something to do once she has everything else done. The best Mon you'll find the same thing with us going to be Meowstic M. Being able to set up safeguard, screens, etc. Than can boost if needed. He also doesn't have horrible bulk
