Moves
========
Psyshock allows Reuniclus to win Calm Mind wars against Mega Alakazam and Clefable and lets it get past Chansey. Focus Blast allows Reuniclus to KO Dark-types like Greninja and Tyranitar as well as Steel-types such as Heatran. It also makes Reuniclus more capable of handling stall teams utilizing Mega Aggron than it would be without it. Alternatively, Energy Ball gives Reuniclus the ability to hit the aforementioned Dark-types more accurately as well as Water-types like Mega Swampert. It also lets Reuniclus hit Mega Sableye, Pyukumuku, and Quagsire, which makes it possible to break through stall teams utilizing Mega Sableye. Signal Beam hits Dark- and Psychic-types like Hoopa-U, Mega Alakazam, and opposing Reuniclus. However, because of the move’s lower Base Power, Reuniclus struggles more against bulky Dark-types like Tyranitar and Hydreigon.

Set Details
========
44 Speed EVs allow Reuniclus to outspeed Toxapex and set up against it before it uses Haze. Leftovers grants Reuniclus passive recovery and helps it check threats like Mega Medicham. Psychium Z gives Reuniclus a way to break past or wear down Pokemon that can ordinarily take a boosted Psyshock and potentially beat Reuniclus one-on-one like Mega Scizor, specially defensive Tapu Bulu, Tapu Fini if Reuniclus isn't running Energy Ball, and Kartana if Reuniclus is using Energy Ball. Fightinium Z with Focus Blast lets Reuniclus overcome bulky Steel- and Dark-types like Heatran, Hydreigon, both Greninja formes, and both Tyranitar formes. It's also worth noting that Focus Blast boosted by Fightinium Z never misses, making it reliable in scenarios where you can't afford to miss.

Usage Tips
========
Early-game, Reuniclus should attempt to stay healthy to check Pokemon such as Mega Medicham, Mega Lopunny, and Protean Greninja. Be careful about what to set up on early-game, as Reuniclus will often be forced out, and the opposing team will still be healthy enough to check it. Try to set up entry hazards early-game to use Reuniclus to force in checks like Greninja, Tyranitar, and Heatran that are easily worn down to facilitate a late-game sweep. If Reuniclus is running Focus Blast, take advantage of the fact that it can often lure in Dark-types that think they're safe hard switching in and try to catch them on the switch. However, be sure to sufficiently wear down Tyranitar into range of Focus Blast. Reuniclus should attempt to set up on Pokemon that can’t severely threaten it like Ferrothorn, Celesteela, and Chansey.

Team Options
========
Spikes helps wear down the opposing team, which makes it easier for Reuniclus to facilitate a late-game sweep. Ferrothorn and both Greninja formes are good options for this. Pursuit support is useful in removing opposing Psychic- and Ghost-types like Mega Alakazam, Mega Latias, and Blacephalon for Reuniclus. Mega Tyranitar and Weavile are good partners for this. Despite Reuniclus having coverage for Dark-types like the Greninja and Tyranitar formes, they are still an issue in a one-on-one situation, so checks for Dark-types like Tapu Fini, Tapu Bulu, and Toxapex are needed. Magnezone works well with Reunicles by threatening and removing Mega Scizor, which is quite troublesome for Reuniclus otherwise.

[SET COMMENTS]
Moves
========
  • Focus Blast allows Reuniclus to KO Dark-types like Ash-Greninja and the Tyranitar formes as well as Steel-types, such as Heatran and Ferrothorn. Mega Aggron is an incredibly important target. It's also not just Ash-Greninja, regular Greninja can be just as much of an issue so mention it.
  • Energy Ball gives Reunicles the ability to hit the aformentioned Dark-types more accurately as well as Water-types like Mega Swampert. It aslo lets Reuniclus hit Mega Sableye and Quagsire, which makes it possible to break through stall teams.
  • Signal Beam hits Dark and Psychic-types like Hoopa-U and opposing Reuniclus accurately. Give more examples.
  • Psyshock gets around Chansey and win in Calm Mind wars against Mega Alakazam and Clefable. Magearna is definitely just as, if not more important as a Calm Mind user that Psyshock covers.
  • Psychic, on the other hand, lets Reuniclus win against Curse Mega Scizor and hits other things like Kartana harder. Recover grants Reuniclus the longevity necessary to set up and check the things it’s supposed to. Psychic is honestly quite bad and the Recover line is fluff.
Reorder this section to reflect the new order.

Set Details
========
  • The EVs make Reuniclus outspeed Toxapex and prevent it from using Haze to wipe Calm Mind boosts while making it as phyiscally bulky as possible. This is worded really awkwardly.
  • Leftovers grants Reuniclus passive recovery and helps it check things like Mega Medicham.
  • Fightinium Z with Focus Blast lets Reuniclus overcome bulky Steel and Dark-types like Heatran, Ferrothorn, weakened Celesteela, Ash-Greninja, and both Tyranitar formes. Ferrothorn and weakened Celesteela do not matter at all, because they're setup bait. Unless it's Worry Seed Ferrothorn, which is far too uncommon to really worry about. Also, I'd specify that it accurately disposes of these Pokemon, because Focus Blast does too, it's just not as consistent because of its significant chance to miss.
  • Psychium Z is best used with Psyshock to give Reuniclus a way to break past Curse users like Mega Scizor and hit things like Kartana harder. It can OHKO Black Sludge Toxapex after a Calm Mind as well, which both Psychic and Psyshock fail to do, even after a Calm Mind. Curse Mega Scizor doesn't exist anymore and the fact that it OHKOes Toxapex after a Calm Mind honestly does not matter. I'd make this a more general mention of just how strong it is.
Make sure to adjust the order here too.

Usage Tips
========
  • Removing or weakening Reuniclus’ checks is the first thing that should be done as once those are gone, then Reuniclus can easily win the game. Removing phasers is also optimal.
  • Reuniclus should attempt to set up on Pokemon that can’t severely threaten it, like Ferrothorn, Celesteela, and Toxapex.
  • Try to keep Reuniclus healthy via Leftovers and use Recover frequently so it’s possible to check Mega Medicham, Choice Scarf Kartana, and Mega Alakazam.
  • If holding Leftovers, avoid Knock Off if possible as well as losing passive recovery is quite annoying for Reuniclus.
These Usage Tips just don't tell me anything really useful; rework it as a whole.

Team Options
========
  • Toxic Spikes are a great asset for Reuniclus as it wears down it’s checks much quicker. Toxapex uses them phenomenally and checks Ash-Greninja. It also fits on many of the same types of teams Reuniclus does.
  • Ferrothorn is a good partner as well thanks to it’s ability to check Ash-Greninja, Mega Gyarados, and Mega Mawile and it sets Spikes, which wears the opposing team down even further.
  • Garchomp is a good partner due to it’s ability to counter Heatran well and set Stealth Rock.
  • Mega Latias provides Thunder Wave support, a counter to Gliscor and Heatran counter for non z-move variants of Reuniclus, and a backup check for things like Mega Medicham, which eases the pressure of Reuniclus having to check it on it’s own.
  • Magnezone works well to remove Mega Scizor, which is very troublesome for Reuniclus otherwise.
Honestly, this section is filled with a bunch of misinformation. You should rework it for the most part. Toxic Spikes just aren't that important for this Reuniclus. The Ferrothorn mention should be turned into a general mention of Spikes. Garchomp is fine as a partner, but it does not counter Heatran. Mega Latias??? Magnezone is fine.
This is far from being QC ready but I do want to give you a shot because you seem really motivated to contribute; I highly encourage you to check out this guide and apply it. Contact me on Discord and we can go over it together if you want.

  • Focus Blast allows Reuniclus to KO Dark-types like Greninja and the Tyranitar formes as well as Steel-types, such as Heatran, Mega Aggron, and Ferrothorn.
  • Energy Ball gives Reunicles the ability to hit the aformentioned Dark-types more accurately as well as Water-types like Mega Swampert. It also lets Reuniclus hit Mega Sableye and Quagsire, which makes it possible to break through stall teams. Specify stall teams that use Mega Sableye; not all stall teams use Mega Sableye. You could alternatively clarify that Focus Blast has an easier time against Mega Aggron stall.
  • Signal Beam hits Dark and Psychic-types like Hoopa-U, both Greninja formes, Mega Alakazam, and opposing Reuniclus.
  • Psyshock allows Reuniclus to win Calm Mind war against Mega Alakazam, Magearna, and Clefable and lets Reuniclus get past Chansey.
Set Details
========
  • The EV’s make Reuniclus outspeed Toxapex, which prevents it from hazing Reuniclus’ boosts.
  • Leftovers grants Reuniclus passive recovery and helps it check things like Mega Medicham.
  • Fightinium Z with Focus Blast lets Reuniclus overcome bulky Steel and Dark-types like Heatran, Ferrothorn, both Greninja formes, and both Tyranitar formes. You still have to mention the improved accuracy.
  • Psychium Z gives Reuniclus a way to break past or wear down things that can normally take a boosted Psyshock like Mega Scizor, Tapu Fini, and Kartana if Reuniclus is using Energy Ball. Right now it seems like Tapu Fini isn't bothered by Energy Ball, but it is.
Change the order to reflect on the changes in the set order.

Usage Tips
========
  • Try and set up hazards early-game to use Reuniclus to force in checks like Greninja, Tyranitar, and Heatran that are easily worn down to facilitate a late-game sweep.
  • Something about if it's running Focus Blast to lure Dark- and some Steel-types.
  • Reuniclus should attempt to set up or Recover on Pokemon that can’t severely threaten it, like Ferrothorn, Celesteela, and Toxapex. It's obvious that you're gonna have to use Recover. Also, not sure how I feel about setting up on Toxapex; I think it's better to just pressure at +1, because it'll remove Reuniclus's boosts.
  • Early-game, Reuniclus should attempt to stay healthy to check Mega Medicham, Mega Lopunny, and Protean Greninja. Move this higher up, because it's talking about early-game. Also mention that you should avoid just setting up early-game.
Team Options
========
  • Spikes help wear down the opposing team, which makes it easier for Reuniclus to beat it’s checks. I'd specify to facilitate a late-game sweep much easier rather than "to beat its checks". Ferrothorn and both Greninja formes are good partners for this.
  • Pursuit support is useful in removing opposing Psychic-types like? for Reuniclus. Mega Tyranitar and Weavile are good for this.
  • Despite having coverage for Dark-Types, theyre still an issue for Reuniclus in a one-on-one situation, so Dark-type What Dark-types do I have to check specifically? checks like Tapu Fini, Tapu Bulu, and Toxapex are needed. I'd definitely mention Magearna.
  • Magnezone works well with Reunicles to remove Mega Scizor, which is very troublesome for Reuniclus otherwise.
I'm going to hold off on stamping until this is all implemented, but it's a large improvement already!

  • Psyshock allows Reuniclus to win Calm Mind wars against Mega Alakazam, Magearna, and Clefable and lets Reuniclus get past Chansey.
  • Focus Blast allows Reuniclus to KO Dark-types like Greninja and the Tyranitar formes as well as Steel-types, such as Heatran, Ferrothorn, and Mega Aggron. It also makes Reuniclus capable of handling stalls utilizing Mega Aggron. Reword this so that it actually sounds like it's really important to note on its own.
  • Energy Ball gives Reunicles the ability to hit the aformentioned Dark-types more accurately as well as Water-types like Mega Swampert. It also lets Reuniclus hit Mega Sableye and Quagsire, which makes it possible to break through stall teams utilizing Mega Sableye.
  • Signal Beam hits Dark and Psychic-types like Hoopa-U, both Greninja formes, Mega Alakazam, and opposing Reuniclus.
Set Details
========
  • The EV’s make Reuniclus outspeed Toxapex, which prevents it from hazing Reuniclus’ boosts.
  • Leftovers grants Reuniclus passive recovery and helps it check things like Mega Medicham.
  • Fightinium Z with Focus Blast lets Reuniclus overcome bulky Steel and Dark-types like Heatran, Ferrothorn, both Greninja formes, and both Tyranitar formes. It's also worth noting that Focus Blast boosted by z Move never misses, making it reliable in scenarios where you can't afford to miss.
  • Psychium Z gives Reuniclus a way to break past or wear down things that can normally take a boosted Psyshock like Mega Scizor, Tapu Fini if Reuniclus isn't running Energy Ball, and Kartana if Reuniclus is using Energy Ball.
Switch Psychium Z and Fightinium Z around.

Usage Tips
========
  • Early-game, Reuniclus should attempt to stay healthy to check Pokemon such as Mega Medicham, Mega Lopunny, and Protean Greninja. Reuniclus shouldn't check only these 3 Pokemon; there's still a few others it can check that are similar to them.
  • Don't set up early-game as Reuniclus will often be forced out and the opposing team will still be healthy enough to check it.
  • Try and set up hazards early-game to use Reuniclus to force in checks like Greninja, Tyranitar, and Heatran that are easily worn down to facilitate a late-game sweep.
  • If Reuniclus is running Focus Blast, take advantage of the fact it'll often lure in Dark-types that think they're safe hard switching in and try to catch hit them on the switch. Say that it still needs a lot of chip on Assault Vest Tyranitar and Mega Tyranitar.
  • Reuniclus should attempt to set up on Pokemon that can’t severely threaten it, like Ferrothorn, Celesteela, and Chansey.
Team Options
========
  • Spikes help wear down the opposing team, which makes it easier for Reuniclus to facilitate a late-game sweep. Ferrothorn and both Greninja formes are good partners for this.
  • Pursuit support is useful in removing opposing Psychic- and Ghost-types like Mega Alakazam and Blacephalon for Reuniclus. Mega Tyranitar and Weavile are good partners for this.
  • Despite having coverage for Dark-Types, they're still an issue for Reuniclus in a one-on-one situation, so checks for Dark-types like Ash-Greninja and Tyranitar are needed. It sounds a lot like they're Dark-type checks, so change the way you worded that. Tapu Fini, Tapu Bulu, Magearna, and Toxapex are able to accomplish this.
  • Magnezone works well with Reunicles to remove Mega Scizor, which is very troublesome for Reuniclus otherwise.

Focus Blast allows Reuniclus to KO Dark-types like Greninja and the Tyranitar formes
Add Hydreigon too

Signal Beam hits Dark and Psychic-types like Hoopa-U, both Greninja formes, Mega Alakazam, and opposing Reuniclus
Mention that it's lower BP means Reuniclus struggles more against Tyranitar and Hydreigon

The EV’s make Reuniclus outspeed Toxapex, which prevents it from hazing Reuniclus’ boosts
Nitpicky, but this doesn't prevent it from hazing. Re-word it to something like "which allows Reuniclus to set up against it before it uses haze" etc.

Psychium Z gives Reuniclus a way to break past or wear down things that can normally take a boosted Psyshock like Mega Scizor, Tapu Fini if Reuniclus isn't running Energy Ball, and Kartana if Reuniclus is using Energy Ball.
Specify that these Pokemon can potentially beat it 1v1 otherwise.
Also add SD Tapu Bulu

Fightinium Z with Focus Blast lets Reuniclus overcome bulky Steel and Dark-types like Heatran, Ferrothorn
Ferrothorn is set up bait and not something you wanna waste a Z-move on. Remove it.

Pursuit support is useful in removing opposing Psychic- and Ghost-types like Mega Alakazam and Blacephalon for Reuniclus
I'd add Mega Latias, CM variants beat it 1v1

QC 2/3 when implemented

It also makes Reuniclus capable of handling stalls utilizing Mega Aggron, which many teams using this Reuniclus can struggle with.
  • this kind of implies or gives the impression that energy ball reuniclus can't beat most mega aggron stalls, which it can, so yeah reword this please.
Energy Ball gives Reunicles the ability to hit the aformentioned Dark-types more accurately as well as Water-types like Mega Swampert. It also lets Reuniclus hit Mega Sableye and Quagsire, which makes it possible to break through stall teams utilizing Mega Sableye.
  • mention pyukumuku too!
Signal Beam hits Dark and Psychic-types like Hoopa-U, both Greninja formes, Mega Alakazam, and opposing Reuniclus.
  • i don't really like the greninja mention here because energy ball and focus blast hits it even harder.

looks ok otherwise,

Early-game, Reuniclus should attempt to stay healthy to check Pokemon such as Mega Medicham, Mega Lopunny, and Protean Greninja. Be careful about what to set up on early-game, as Reuniclus will often be forced out, and the opposing team will still be healthy enough to check it. Try and to set up entry hazards early-game (AH) to use Reuniclus to force in checks like Greninja, Tyranitar, and Heatran that are easily worn down to facilitate a late-game sweep. If Reuniclus is running Focus Blast, take advantage of the fact that it can often lure in Dark-types that think they're safe hard switching in and try to catch them on the switch. However, be sure to sufficiently wear down Tyranitar into range of Focus Blast. Reuniclus should attempt to set up on Pokemon that can’t severely threaten it like Ferrothorn, Celesteela, and Chansey.

Team Options
========
Spikes helps wear down the opposing team, which makes it easier for Reuniclus to facilitate a late-game sweep. Ferrothorn and both Greninja formes are good partners for this. Pursuit support is useful in removing opposing Psychic- and Ghost-types like Mega Alakazam, Mega Latias, and Blacephalon for Reuniclus. Mega Tyranitar and Weavile are good partners options for this. Despite Reuniclus having coverage for Dark-types like the Greninja and Tyranitar formes, they are still an issue for Reuniclus in a one-on-one situation, so checks for Dark-types like Tapu Fini, Tapu Bulu, and Toxapex are needed. Magnezone works well with Reunicles by threatening and removing Mega Scizor, which is quite troublesome for Reuniclus otherwise.

Moves
========
Psyshock allows Reuniclus to win Calm Mind wars against Mega Alakazam and Clefable and lets it get past Chansey. Focus Blast allows Reuniclus to KO Dark-types like Greninja and Tyranitar as well as Steel-types such as Heatran. It also makes Reuniclus more capable of handling stall teams utilizing Mega Aggron than it would be without it. Alternatively, Energy Ball gives Reuniclus the ability to hit the aforementioned Dark-types more accurately as well as Water-types like Mega Swampert. It also lets Reuniclus hit Mega Sableye, Pyukumuku, and Quagsire, which makes it possible to break through stall teams utilizing Mega Sableye. Signal Beam hits Dark- and Psychic-types like Hoopa-U, Mega Alakazam, and opposing Reuniclus. However, because of Signal Beam's the move's lower Base Power, Reuniclus struggles more against bulky Dark-types like Tyranitar and Hydreigon.

Set Details
========
44 Speed EVs allow Reuniclus to outspeed Toxapex in order for Reuniclus to and set up against it before it uses Haze. Leftovers grants Reuniclus passive recovery and helps it check threats like Mega Medicham. Psychium Z gives Reuniclus a way to break past or wear down Pokemon that can ordinarily take a boosted Psyshock and potentially beat Reuniclus one-on-one like Mega Scizor, specially defensive Tapu Bulu, Tapu Fini if Reuniclus isn't running Energy Ball, and Kartana if Reuniclus is using Energy Ball. Fightinium Z with Focus Blast lets Reuniclus overcome bulky Steel- and Dark-types like Heatran, Hydreigon, both Greninja formes, and both Tyranitar formes. It's also worth noting that Focus Blast boosted by Fightinium Z never misses, making it reliable in scenarios where you can't afford to miss.
