[SET COMMENTS]
Choice Band Rillaboom functions as both a strong wallbreaker and late-game sweeper thanks to Grassy Glide. It also provides great support with Grassy Terrain, both boosting its teammates' Grass-type STAB moves and granting them a form of recovery. Thanks to Grassy Glide, not only does Rillaboom dismantle walls like Empoleon and Garganacl with ease, but it also targets faster threats such as Iron Boulder, Flutter Mane, and Keldeo. Wood Hammer removes targets that Grassy Glide wouldn't fare well against like Toxapex and Gliscor. Knock Off grants coverage against Ghost-types like Dragapult, Gholdengo, and Brambleghast and removes items from the likes of Corviknight and Dragonite. Alternatively, High Horsepower targets bulky Poison- and Steel-types such as Alolan Muk, Hisuian Goodra, and Heatran. U-turn allows Rillaboom to pivot one of its teammates in safely while still dealing big damage to the likes of Meowscarada and Hydreigon. A Jolly nature allows Rillaboom to outspeed and threaten non-Choice Scarf Gholdengo and speed tie with unboosted Kingdra.

Brambleghast aids Rillaboom's wallbreaking thanks to its Spikes wearing down incoming foes and Rapid Spin removing entry hazards so Rillaboom has more opportunities to switch in. Brambleghast is also able to switch in against an anticipated Hurricane, Blizzard, or Heat Wave thanks to its Wind Rider ability. Amoonguss makes for another great teammate, being able to immobilize a check to Rillaboom like Galarian Weezing or Sneasler with Spore and punish physical attackers that threaten Rillaboom such as Scizor with Foul Play. Rillaboom forms strong wallbreaking cores with special attackers like Sinistcha and Hydrapple. It checks Flutter Mane and Ting-Lu for them, and in return, Sinistcha handles Zamazenta as well as potentially spreading burns with Matcha Gotcha, while Hydrapple can set up and deal with Archaludon if it is not running Draco Meteor. Ogerpon-H and Ogerpon-C remove foes that Rillaboom struggles with. Specifically, Ogerpon-H deals with Corviknight, Amoonguss, and Choice Specs Iron Crown, while Ogerpon-C handles Moltres and unboosted Volcarona. In return, Rillaboom deals with faster threats such as Choice Scarf Landorus and Greninja. Choice Scarf Meowscarada outspeeds and threatens speedy threats like Chien-Pao and Choice Scarf Roaring Moon, and thanks to Protean, it improves Grass's matchup against types like Dragon. Rillaboom's wallbreaking paves the way for opportunities for Hisuian Lilligant to clean late-game.

- Make sure sets have a name.
- In the Brambleghast sentence, the moves listed are singular, so they should be used with an article (an) and or.
I mostly just made non-objective changes, so PM me if you have a question about any of them.
