    VGC Testing the Waters

    I suggest changing Tapu Koko for Ludicolo, Kyogre is your only counter to a well played Groudon and Incineroar and without that you have nothing to hit it for hard damage before hits you for big damage

    Battle Spot Battlespot Doubles

    Hi all, really would like some critique for my team, I used Saxlad's team as a base but added what I felt was an improvement to the design Ludicolo @ Waterium Z Ability: Swift Swim Level: 50 EVs: 4 HP/ 252 SpA / 252 Spe Modest Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Protect - Ice Beam - Hydro Pump -...

    VGC Alolan Ninetales + Alolan Sandslash

    What he said ^ Drop Protect on Mimikyu for something else, Mimikyu is more comfortable being support rather than offense, maybe change it to something like Taunt, Will O Wisp, Shadow Claw and Destiny Bond, Z-Destiny bond is fantastic for set up so maybe you can use that on your team since you...

    VGC My first VGC team

    Hi man. Welcome to the VGC side of things, you'll find it is a whole lot more erratic than Singles. I'll begin, I notice on your movesets you have built it with Singles in mind, Protect is pretty much mandatory on almost all VGC teams as of the aforementioned erratic targeting, you only have it...

    VGC Bulky Veil Offense

    Yes of course. Psychic Seed and Misty Seed function exactly the same, they both raise SpD by one stage when Psychic Terrain or Misty Terrain are active on the field. Giving Mandibuzz enough defense to give withstand attacks from the likes of Tapu Koko and Tapu Lele. In my opinion a seed is the...

    VGC Bulky Veil Offense

    Swap Haze to Taunt or this team relies on setup and Aurora Veil and Haze just gets in your way, plus you need the Taunt to counter TR which your team might suffer against (I saw you had Taunt on Gyarados but considering how popular Porygon2 is as a TR mon Gyarados might not want to stay in on...

    VGC Hail Gary - Aspiring VGC Competitive - Thoughts please?

    I don't quite see how you can not have issues with Koko by using Ninetales, if it was Sash Ninetales maybe but Modest LO Koko can have a 43% chance to OHKO your Ninetales And Gigavolt Havoc Koko can just OHKO it, again you could fake out the sash but in a Bo3 your opponent will see it is not...

    VGC Hail Gary - Aspiring VGC Competitive - Thoughts please?

    How do you deal with Trick Room? I think you should run Lightning Rod, seeing this team I thought "Koko will wreck this team" Kept scrolling and saw you had Marowak but then read your description, in a Bo1 sure you could fake the Lightning Rod but in a Bo3 VGC match you won't get away with...

    VGC Let's Give It a Shot

    I don't think Golduck is that good outside of Double Duck teams, without Swift Swim and Rain it isn't fast and isn't quick enough, things it once could handle (Tapu Koko, Garchomp etc) can now decimate it. If you want an offensive Water type you are better off using Scarf Milotic or Politoed...

    VGC Electivire team

    I considered suggesting Metagross since it's the second best physical attacking Steel type in the meta at the moment but you already have Electivire and Koko so that would make you dangerously weak to Ground, Celesteela provides the same issue since that makes you weak to Electric for half your...

    VGC Electivire team

    Maybe change Scizor for Kartana, with the amount of Lele running around Scizor is restricted to using Feint and Bullet Punch especially on banded set and without the presence of Tapu Fini or Tapu Bulu to replace Lele's terrain. Kartana provides that offensive Steel-type presence that can better...

    VGC Trick Room and Tailwind unite! (Doubles Troubles)

    Change Pluck on Mandibuzz to either Knock Off, Snarl or Taunt I say Knock Off because in terms of disruption it is better than Pluck, Pluck only works on Berries which are only common on a select few Pokemon like Arcanine, Tapu Fini and Alola Muk Knock Off can eliminate all items (with the...

    Consider Rain Dance in that case, it will cripple Arcanine and be of more use considering you said you are running Tapu Fini
