Resource 1v1 Set Compendium [In Production] [Apply Now!]

:Garchomp: Chomper is a cool guy, so have a cool chomper set I made. :Garchomp:
Pokemon Set:
Garchomp @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Rough Skin
EVs: 232 Atk / 24 SpA / 252 Spe
Hasty Nature
- Earthquake
- Outrage
- Fire Blast
- Stone Edge

EV Explanation:
Scarf and 252+ Spe allow Garchomp to reach a very high speed tier, outspeeding most other scarfers (such as Jirachi and Haxorus). Scarf also helps Garchomp defeat Victini, as that still gets outsped after one glaciate, while Air Balloon gets 2HKOd by 232 Atk Stone Edge unless running a questionable amount of bulk. Fire Blast helps with Ferrothorn and Kartana, and 24 Spa and a Hasty nature ensure the OHKO on offensive Genesect. I chose Hasty over Naive to always live Victini's unboosted Glaciate.

Discord ID:
MikaAlka#4065

mixed scarf set is clean, takes advantage of its movepool and the state of the metagame. just wondering if Stone Edge has any other purpose/could be slashed for something else, but thats relatively minor. I'll add u - tda

Update

Thanks to the submissions from everyone who has joined this project so far, we have a boatload of sets for the top tier mons being focused on (Victini Urshifu Snorlax Primarina Jirachi), alongside sets for many other Pokemon, as well.

I'm super stoked about the enthusiasm with this project ^~^ we're going to work on getting the Alpha version of the compendium out as soon as possible, which will mean reviewing and optimizing the sets sent, alongside adding alternative EVs and generally polishing things up.

This should only take a day or two, given our minds are focused on getting it done. Until then, I'm temporarily going to freeze new additions to this project, both sets and members, though this won't last more than 1-2 days.

You can still put out an application, but I'll be commenting on it after we get the first draft of the compendium out.

Just wanted to let ppl know. I'm very thankful that people are as excited about this as I am xd
 
I'm going to put my cursed creation into the aether:

:kartana: :assault-vest: :kartana: :assault-vest:
Kartana @ Assault Vest
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 244 Atk / 140 SpD / 124 Spe
Adamant Nature
IVs: 0 SpA
- Leaf Blade
- Sacred Sword
- Smart Strike
- Knock Off
:assault-vest: :kartana: :assault-vest: :kartana:

This mon is bulked for Modest Specs Regieleki Thunder, and can reliably live other special hits, provided they aren't fire type. The speed is to outspeed base 80s, and the rest is dumped into attack.

This mon can beat special Custap mons, such as Primarina, with Knock Off, provided they don't have Flamethrower or some other fire move. AV Kart is a fun surprise mon, as most people will be expecting a frail choiced mon, only to be faced with this abomination beautiful creation. This Kartana really struggles against physically oriented mons, but paired with a mon that beats physical mons reliably, this Kartana is a monster. Have fun!

If you have any questions, I can be reached on Discord as Itchyfoot ♤ ~~#6037

s/o to pqs for optimizing this set :blobuwu:

Looks like an interesting lure, functionally works. I'm wondering how useful Sacred Sword is, since you don't rlly have the power to KO threats like Heatran fast enough. But its good enough, I'll add u - tda.

Application 2: Electric Boogaloo

:vaporeon::vaporeon::vaporeon::vaporeon:
Vaporeon @ Wacan Berry
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 172 HP / 12 Def / 72 SpA / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Yawn
- Protect
- Fake Tears
- Shadow Ball

Supposed to be a sylveon immune to water type moves but relies on 3-turn sleep too much. Wacan for banded bolt strike from vic and t-bolt from regieleki. Sp def to give maximum chance to get 4hkoed by moonblast from prim. Enough Spa Attck to do this:

72 SpA Vaporeon Shadow Ball vs. 240 HP / 4 SpD Victini: 134-158 (33.4 - 39.4%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

12 Def to live banded outrage from dracovish cause I had some leftover Ev's.

Honestly, I don't think this Vaporeon is a solid set(It seem too RNG Dependent even for me), so you can just ignore it.

This is my real set for the application:

:Tsareena::Tsareena::Tsareena:
Tsareena @ Custap Berry
Ability: Queenly Majesty
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 112 HP / 252 Atk / 144 Def
Adamant Nature
- Power Whip
- Endure
- High Jump Kick
- Triple Axel

What I think is really unique about this mon is that it can be used as a custap user that isn't bothered by priority. The bulk is to give the maximum chance to live a banded outrage from dragapult and live banded(Jolly) and scarf wicked blows from urshifu and destroying them back with high jump kick(or 2). Triple Axel is for non-acro rilla, zygod, clutch for dragapult and haxorus(however these match ups aren't reliable), and maybe some other niche mons. Even though I don't like Triple Axel because of its shaky accuracy and would like to change the move slot, it's too good of coverage not to use. The rest of the Evs are in Atk.
 

Krytocon

I do things (sometimes)
Zapdos-Galar
Zapdos-Galar @ Custap Berry
Ability: Defiant
EVs: 248 HP / 120 Atk / 72 Def / 48 SpD / 20 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Reversal
- Brave Bird
- Thunderous Kick
- Endure
252 Atk Choice Band Haxorus Outrage vs. 248 HP / 72 Def Zapdos-Galar: 324-382 (84.5 - 99.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252 SpA Choice Specs Naganadel Draco Meteor vs. 248 HP / 48 SpD Zapdos-Galar: 324-382 (84.5 - 99.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
Speed outspeeds Timid base 60s
Zapdos-Galar @ Choice Band
Ability: Defiant
EVs: 248 HP / 40 Atk / 72 Def / 76 SpD / 72 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Close Combat
- Brave Bird
- Thunderous Kick
- Counter
252 Atk Choice Band Haxorus Outrage vs. 248 HP / 72 Def Zapdos-Galar: 324-382 (84.5 - 99.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
SpD EVs give Genesect an Atk boost and tanks Overheat from Timid specs Heatran
Speed outspeeds Modest Heatran
An alternative spread of 248 HP / 8 Atk / 204 Def / 48 SpD Adamant can be run to tank a Jolly Banded V-create from Victini but sacrifices all speed and somewhat the Heatran matchup (loses to Modest specs Overheat)
Discord ID: Bruh#4229

Nice sets, A bit concerned about Band's lack of relative power for what its eving for, specifically Genesect, the KO is only a roll. But besides that, pretty good. added u - TDA

Alrighty, so the Alpha version of the Set Compendium has been completed!

This first edition focused on getting representation from everything rated A- and above, especially the top 5 Pokemon in the metagame, Victini, Urshifu-S, Primarina, Snorlax, and Jirachi.

There were many submissions for Pokemon rated B+ or below; however, not every Pokemon in these lower rankings has yet to receive representation, especially the lower down the VR you go. They will receive sets as the Set Compendium moves on to the second slate, as well as the higher ranked Pokemon receiving more sets and EV spreads.

Without further ado, the Alpha Set Compendium: https://pokepast.es/7dc9d18efd0d91e0
(With EV Explanations: https://docs.google.com/document/d/16NgtTINue35_4ZZI4RavK3L-JeyBDiqBizFs7kRTYbM/edit#)

A big thanks to, in approximate order of level of contributions, STABLE smely socks Mishlef pqs Murman0064 Vrji HowDidWeGetHere parr0t Here comes team Charm! zio Nalei Potatochan Magic Mushie Rosa Boat TheShadowClaw lopinon Mubs for helping get this thing out there

For those who have submitted apps above, I'll be reviewing them later today.

We're officially starting the second slate with the release of the Alpha Compendium, with a focus on getting the rest of the representation for everything in B- and above, and creating unique new sets for the A- and above mons!
 
Choice Band Dragapult
Dragapult @ Choice Band
Ability: Clear Body
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 SpD
Jolly Nature
- Outrage
- Dive
- Dragon Darts
- Phantom Force
Very Cool Set, Main Thing About it Is ConsistAntly Beating Victini Unlike Sub Disable Pult, As Well as Beating Porygon-Z Without a 50/50
It also Beats Excadrill Because of Dive But Who Cares Lol, And It also Beats Both Fat Fuck Eggs (Chansey and Blissey). This is Just Another Dragapult set But I Think It is Very Cool And Relevant, As In I Have Actually Seen Band Dragapults On Ladder Recently Besides Mine. Pls Add Nalei Uwu.
 
oops double post :sunglasses:
Zarude @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Leaf Guard
EVs: 200 HP / 100 Atk / 32 SpD / 176 Spe
Adamant Nature

- Stomping Tantrum
beats magnezone and stuff weak to it's stuff, not gonna explain EVs because this is krytocon's set.
 
:ss/ferrothorn:
Ferrothorn @ Occa/Chople Berry
Ability: Iron Barbs
EVs: 252 HP / 152 Atk / 48 Def / 56 SpD
Relaxed Nature
IVs: 0 Spe
- Leech Seed
- Gyro Ball
- Power Whip
- Protect

Defensive investment lives a Close Combat from Choice Band Haxorus, and the Attack investment lets you KO back with Gyro Ball. The rest is dumped into Special Defense.

you know you're in the discord chat to send sets in, right? xd
 
Pokemon Set:
Regieleki @ Chesto Berry
Ability: Transistor
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Eerie Impulse
- Thunder Cage
- Rest
- Sleep Talk

EV Explanation:
Chesto resto for a quick turn of recovery that helps in a lot of matchups, like against yawn fake tears Sylveon or Specs mons without trick.
EV+Nature to achieve max special bulk. 4 leftover points in SpA for Thunder Cage.

The plan is to face special attackers and stall them with our speed and Eerie impulse, which lowers the foe SpA by 2 stages.
Thunder Cage over other electric moves for the DoT, pretty neat in stall faceoffs.
It might be a stall set, but it still straight up wins against frail mons weak to electric moves, like banded Urshifu-RS.

Discord Username:

Maxmence#9541 (I'm just posting my set because I think it's viable. Not applying to anything rn)
 
big (Snorlax) @ Custap Berry
Ability: Gluttony
EVs: 140 HP / 8 Atk / 252 Def / 108 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Belly Drum
- Double-Edge
- Heat Crash
- Encore

explanation:
the hp and defense tanks band rillaboom wood hammer, and you can kill back with heat crash twice. the hp and spd tanks specs modest regieleki electro ball, and kills back with heat crash twice. rest of evs are put into attack. can alternatively run counter over heat crash to lose some but beat avalugg

:tapu-koko: Stop! Thief! :tapu-koko: :kecleon:

Tapu Koko @ Electric Seed
Ability: Electric Surge
EVs: 76 HP / 252 Atk / 40 Def / 140 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Thief
- Taunt
- Wild Charge
- Brave Bird

Lots of options with this one. Spread with electric seed popped lets you take 2 hits from +1 Rillaboom, which is enough turns to KO with brave bird. OHKOs most Prima variants w/ max attack wild charge as well. Matches up well against many other physical sets because of natural bulk amplified with +1.

Bulk also allows tapu to get off thief against a lot of sets, creating a lot of opportunities. Since elec seed was popped, Tapu gets +1 and has an empty slot to steal an item. Shuts down a lot of the cast of Custap mons because it can get an easy steal + taunt + max attack recoil move. Good matchup against Scarf Jirachi (and other scarf mons with little coverage to deal with it) with the option to steal scarf and max attack Wild Charge. Steals all of the important stuff like weakness policies, choice items, berries, depending on the situation, which opens up to a lot of sneaky counterplay, only amplified by the spread.
