Project Break This Team: USUM AG Edition

The first thing I noticed about this team is a particular weakness to Scarf Xerneas, employing pokemon that can't take multiple hits to check it. Xerneas can still be annoyed by Pdon and Mgar, which is cleaned up nicely by celesteela, which just flat out walls the Primal Groudon set and 1v1's mgar. The only actual threat to this core is Xerneas getting trapped by mgar, but some good plays and keeping rocks up should make this a free win.

Xern is a very noticeable weakness, we ohko 3 of his pokemon with a moonblast and his only reliable check is pdon, which can only check 1 of our xerns since it has no recovery and relies on phasing it out. Our first xern can set up on 3 of skarph's pokemons (4 if we can bluff scarf vs marshadow). Timid nature xern outspeeds his ygod so we dont get taunted, sub gives us immunity to toxic from zyggy and fairyceus. second set is fairium z which has ingrain and aroma. This set is better than the other one vs Pdon, since this one has immunity to roar, status and takes very less from precipice blades.
not much to say here bcz theres really no way u can lose with this core vs skarph's team.

One thing i noticed while looking at the team is how weak the team is to rock polish Pdon, as after one rock polish fire blast+ precipice blades completely decimates the team and is quite easy to start setting up on mons such as mgar and arc-fairy (although it has to toxic in order to stall it out and dies to 2 fire blasts assuming they hit). Now, there is still a zygarde that stops groudon from getting its sweep, this is where Arc-Fairy being able to deal with Zygarde,Yveltal and Marsh.
0 Atk Groudon-Primal Precipice Blades vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Gengar-Mega: 522-614 (200 - 235.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Gengar-Mega: 440-522 (168.5 - 200%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ SpA Groudon-Primal Fire Blast vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Marshadow in Harsh Sunshine: 360-424 (112.1 - 132%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ SpA Groudon-Primal Fire Blast vs. 248 HP / 0 SpD Arceus-Fairy in Harsh Sunshine: 282-333 (63.6 - 75.1%) -- guaranteed

252+ SpA Groudon-Primal Fire Blast vs. 0 HP / 0- SpD Yveltal in Harsh Sunshine: 373-441 (94.9 - 112.2%) -- 68.8% chance to OHKO

Submissions closed 16 hours ago. Here are this round's options:

This is a Gengar-Mega balance which utilizes two of the most offensive cores in the current metagame. Those being, M-Gar + Marshadow and M-Gar + Yveltal. Life Orb Yveltal and Z-Move Marshadow apply insane pressure to opposing teams when paired with M-Gar, who traps Arceus-Fairy. On the defensive side, Zygarde-Complete is one of the most reliable checks to many physical threats such as Ho-Oh, P-Don, M-Ray, Ekiller, and Marshadow. Defog Arceus-Fairy is the backbone of the team and neutralize significant threats like Yveltal, Marshadow, and Zygarde-Complete. Primal-Groudon helps keep Primal-Kyogre and Geomancy Xerneas at bay, while providing a good stealth rock setter. Some Techs this team uses are Thousand Waves Zygarde for trapping Arceus-Fairy and Focus Blast M-Gar which knocks out Tyranitar, who beats LO Yveltal.
