shattering expectations to forge a new reality

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
- Hammer Arm
- Swords Dance / Bulk Up
stats: 140 / 150 / 100 / 90 / 100 / 100
Stufful is a newcomer from Alola that have high bulk and Attack, very good Ability. With 140 / 100 / 100 bulk AND Fluffy, Stufful is a threat that is hard to take down Physically AND it hits hard. With Normal/Fighting typing and Fluffy, it's able to check threats like Pawniard and Cranidos and basically many Physical threats. It also has boosting move in Swords Dance and Bulk Up depending on your needs.
Charmander @ Firium Z
Ability: Solar Power
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Modest / Timid Nature
- Sunny Day
- Fire Blast
- Dragon Pulse
- Hidden Power Ground / Rock
stats: 78 / 104 / 86 / 120 / 100 / 130
What is this? Well, now Charmander has a niche of utilizing Z-Sunny Day + Solar Power and sweep. Fire Blast hits incredibly hard. The rest of the moves is just for coverage. Modest is preferable because it gives more power.

Q: Will Shedinja have more than 1 HP?
A: Shedinja is hardcoded to 1 HP, so no.
Q: Will Wishiwashi-School have doubled stats? If not, what's it's exact mechanic?
A: Wishiwashi-School will have normal stats with exception of HP, where it'll be doubled because it doesn't change it's HP upon transformation. So yeah, it will have 90 HP, rest are normal stats.
Q: Why didn't you ban Thick Club and Deepseascale?
A: I won't blanket ban all pokemon specific items, because it seems unfair. Reason why I banned Light Ball is because of Pikachu has 110/100 offenses AND 180 Speed, while Clamperl has 147 SpA, Shell Smash with 70/170 Defense, so I believe only those two are broken at first glance with items. Cubone needs testing because it only has 70 Speed. Regarding Deepseascale, it increases SpDef, not firepower. So I don't think it's quickban worthy.
