    VGC Let It Snow (VGC Abomasnow Team)

    Thanks for all the input! However, I don't have Swagger to hit my opponents with it. I have it to maybe boost Metagross or Kommo-O, and the Misty Terrain actually helps in negating the confusion. It's basically a free Swords Dance for any grounded Pokemon. Thanks for everything else though!

    VGC Let It Snow (VGC Abomasnow Team)

    Hey everyone! I've just made and tested my new VGC team, and I personally think it's the best one I've made so far! However, I still feel like there are minor issues that I just can't seem to fix. If one of you guys could help me on that, it'd be wonderful! This team's specialty is that I put a...

    Resource PU Good Cores

    I've got a really nice balance core that I find works better than the standard Primeape & Absol Core. The way the core typically works is to have a fighting type lure in Psychics and Ghosts, and then switch out into Abosl, who can net a kill or set up an SD. Normally, Primeape would go for...

    VGC Shedinja Squad (2nd In Game Team)

    I don't like the idea of wasting an item for a second z crystal, so I think I'll try the Figy 50% berry. Thanks for the suggestion!

    VGC Shedinja Squad (2nd In Game Team)

    Thanks! I definitely see how these changes can really help my team in a pinch. To be honest, I completely forgot about Spore on Amoonguss, so thanks for reminding me. I like the recommendation of Cress, but I think I'll keep Shedinja for the moment and see how it goes. However, how can I have an...

    VGC Shedinja Squad (2nd In Game Team)

    Hey guys! I really appreciate what you all did to help me with my Sky Drop + Machamp Team, and in the end, it really put in a ton of work on the Battle Spot ladder. Anyhow, I've got another squad that I'm anxious to breed into my copy of USUM, and from what I've tested, it has the perfect mix of...

    VGC VGC 18 Machamp + Sky Drop Offense (Need Help)

    Thanks man! I love the idea of having AV + Knock and BP on Machamp, but the reason I was hesitant to run it was Tapu Lele's Psychic Terrain, which if slower than Koko, can reset and disable my bullet punch kill, and if it's faster, it gets a hit off anyway. Would it be wise of me to: a. Keep HP...

    Resource PU Teambuilding Lab!

    Hey guys! I'm coming from some other metagames, specifically VGC and OU, and I really don't know how PU teams work. I know certain threats like Hitmonchan and Mespirit exist, but other than that, all my PU teams are memes (i.e. CB Sturdy Reversal Togedumaru). I would really like an HO team...

    VGC Where do you think you're going?

    252+ Atk Life Orb Tapu Bulu Zen Headbutt vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Naganadel: 322-382 (112.1 - 133.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO Your calcs are wrong, unless you are inferring naga has a sash on it. Scarf Zen Headbutt could also be used to almost KO Mega Gengar. The fact that these moves don't OHKO is fine, as...

    VGC VGC 2018 Trick Room Mega Scizor

    Stealth Rock is absolute trash in VGC, but SD is a good idea for trick room. Also, Bug bite is Technician boosted, so it hits much harder than U-turn would.

    VGC Where do you think you're going?

    I really like the idea of a Shadow Tag team without perish song, but there is something you need to be aware of. Ghost types can easily switch in and out because they are immune to Shadow Tag. This means that fast ghost types, such as scarf Gengar and Aegislash and Mimikyu under Tailwind, are...

    VGC VGC 18 Machamp + Sky Drop Offense (Need Help)

    Hey guys! This is my second RMT on the forums, and I really want this one to be perfected because I will be using it on my actual Ultra Moon profile. It's a pretty cool team. I would never use a completely normal team, so I put a little fun surprise in Machamp. Tapu Koko @ Focus Sash Ability...

    Battle Spot Kanto x Alola Competition Nidosweep Team

    Just noticing you only have 5 pokemon listed. What's #6?

    Battle Spot Offfensive BSS Team

    Thx, I was thinking Lucario, but then I have would have two fighting types. If I did do lucario, I would run: Lucario-Mega @ Lucarionite Ability: Adaptability Level: 50 EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Swords Dance - Close Combat - Bullet Punch - Stone Edge And I...

    Battle Spot Offfensive BSS Team

    Hey! I am brand new to Smogon forums, but do not worry, I have loads of battle experience. I've been testing this team in Showdown for the past few weeks and I want some suggestions before I breed it into the game. Anyway, this is a team centered around tricking your opponent and gaining massive...
