Submission deadline is March 21st at 10 pm gmt-4

Banned deucer.
Kyurem-White @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Turboblaze
EVs: 252 HP / 40 SpD / 216 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Freeze-Dry
- Roost
- Sheer Cold
- Fusion Flare

This set makes the ferro matchup and kyogre matchup better simply being able to stall out kyogre and ignoring the potential freezes rather then eternatus/ferro which are always at risk of the ice beam freeze. It also has the chance to ohko ho oh on the swap with the assumption they don’t know what to do vs kyuw and don’t carry hard counters to it. Being able to wall kyogre and having a ohko move makes this a overall solid mon used correctly. This set also deals with most foggers like yveltal as well as making the dd zyg MU better because you can always ohko it’s also a slight ditto improof.
 



The team is a bit passive and lacks a good wallbreaker, so I am going to suggest Zacian-C again.

Zacian-Crowned @ Rusted Sword
Ability: Intrepid Sword
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Behemoth Blade
- Crunch
- Wild Charge

Probably the best wallbreaker this gen, Zacian-C would be a good addition as it pairs very well with Gothitelle and Zygarde-C that are already present in the team. It outspeeds and is able to heavily damage non-Choice Scarf Variants of Kyogre that can be threatening for the team. It also outspeeds Marshadow and Meteor Beam Eternatus that can make huge dents in the team.

This team needs a dynamax mon. Special attack yveltal is a great one. Double yveltal is also a very good pair on a team. When this mon uses max airstream is becomes faster than all viable mons allowing it to be things like zacian, calyrex, eternatus, and marshadow. It can also sometimes beat a special defensive yveltal if u use max darkness then max airstream. But it will most likely switch. When this mon gets max airstream +1 speed it can make a real big dent in your opponent's team

gonna reinsert kyogre again because this team has completed its defensive slots and needs a wallbreaker to fit in. see previous post for reasoning.

Eternatus @ Black Sludge
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 248 HP / 216 SpD / 44 Spe
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Recover
- Flamethrower / Mystical Fire
- Toxic
- Dynamax Cannon

As others have pointed out, a Kyogre check is necessary, and Eternatus is one of the most reliable ones to it (especially in conjunction with Gothitelle trapping Rest variants). Heavy-Duty Boots Kyurem-W losing to Choice Specs is not great, and Utility Umbrella ones really want solid hazard control in my opinion, ie. not just a Defog Yveltal. In addition, it can also pose as an offensive threat, appreciating Gothitelle's ability to cripple a lot of its common counterplay, such as Rest Kyogre, Ho-oh & opposing Eternatus.​

As this team comes to an end, it still doesn't have a dynamax mon. Special attack yveltal is a great one. When this mon uses max airstream it becomes faster than all viable mons allowing it to be mons like zacian, calyrex, eternatus, and marshadow. It can also sometimes beat a special defensive yveltal if u use max darkness then max airstream. When this mon gets max airstream +1 speed it can make a real big dent in your opponent's team

about you

OMPL Champion

(thank you Catalystic for the spread)

Zacian-Crowned @ Rusted Sword
Ability: Intrepid Sword
EVs: 184 HP / 196 Atk / 16 SpD / 112 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Behemoth Blade
- Close Combat
- Wild Charge
- Assurance

Our team would appreciate a win condition and centralizing offensive force that takes advantage of Gothitelle's presence; as such, I am nominating Zacian-Crowned. This particular bulky Zacian-C spread grants Zacian-C the ability to live a Max Lightning from a Geomancied Xerneas while maximizing offensive power and creeping enemy adamant Zacian-Cs. It is important for our team to have this spread as Xerneas pretty comes in for free on and threatens half of it. From an offensive standpoint, Zacian-C synergizes well with Gothitelle as Gothitelle threatens an enemy's #1 check to Zacian-C: Necrozma-Dusk-Mane. After NDM is down, Zacian-C has free reign to threaten the rest of their team. Lastly, despite only having 196 attack and a Jolly nature, Assurance + CC still breaks enemy defensive Necrozma-Dusk-Manes if they switch in on rocks.

:ss/marshadow:
Marshadow @ Life Orb
Ability: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Shadow Sneak
- Close Combat
- Poltergeist
- Rock Tomb

The team needs both more offensive pressure and a little speed to close it out, and I think Marshadow is one of the best ways to go about that. It breaks through most defensive cores by itself, breaking through teams for the Zygarde to clean up. It also pairs really well with Gothitelle naturally, as that can trap defensive Zygarde and some Eternatus, tricking them for Marshadow to clean up. Rock Tomb was chosen over Ice Punch because Ho-oh is an incredibly annoying thing for our Zygarde set, and Marshadow can sometimes force in Ho-oh if the other checks have been trapped by Gothitelle. Sneak helps revenge Calyrex-S which I think is extremely needed since if Yveltal goes down to a Max Starfall or just doing its natural job the team just loses. I think Marshadow offers everything we need to finish off the team really, a great physical breaker that pairs well with Gothitelle while also being a revenge killer for a lot of things, something we really need.
