Cherubi is the Little Cup tier's most potent sun attacker and, after a Growth boost, becomes capable of tearing through most Pokemon in the tier. Weather Ball is Cherubi's biggest advantage over fellow Cholorphyll user Oddish, allowing it to break through Steel-types like Pawniard and Ferroseed under the sun. Growth sharply boosts Cherubi's attacking stats under the sun, allowing it to break through bulkier defensive Pokemon such as Mareanie and Spritzee, both of which it has a chance to OHKO at +2 after Stealth Rock. Healing Wish lets Cherubi fully heal Oddish on double Chlorophyll sun teams rather than sweep itself. Protect prevents Cherubi from being revenge killed by Trapinch's First Impression, while Dazzling Gleam helps Cherubi reliably beat Vullaby, especially at +2. Giga Drain is an option over Protect to provide with Cherubi a decent damaging move outside of sun. Eviolite grants Cherubi more bulk to help set up with Growth and survive chip damage from priority moves, especially Sucker Punch from Pawniard, while Life Orb guarantees OHKOs against Mareanie and Spritzee at +2, the latter after Stealth Rock, and allows Cherubi to OHKO Berry Juice Vullaby most of the time with unboosted sun Weather Ball after Stealth Rock.

Cherubi is dead weight without sun, so Vulpix is a mandatory teammate, and it can also use Memento to provide Cherubi opportunities to set up and sweep. Oddish is another partner that benefits from Chlorophyll and sun; Oddish deals with Vullaby better with Moonblast, while Cherubi beats Pawniard and Ferroseed. Cherubi struggles heavily against Munchlax and Vullaby, the latter without a Growth boost and Dazzling Gleam, and thus appreciates Onix and Galarian Farfetch'd as teammates. Support from a Knock Off user like Galarian Farfetch'd or Vullaby can also help Cherubi beat bulkier defensive Pokemon.

Cherubi is the Little Cup tier's most potent Sun abuser and, after a Growth boost, an incredibly dangerous sweeper capable of tearing through most Pokemon in the tier. Weather Ball is Cherubi's biggest advantage over fellow Cholorphyll-user Oddish, allowing Cherubi to break through Steel-types like Pawniard and Ferroseed. Growth boosts Cherubi to extreme power with Sun, allowing it to break through bulkier defensive Pokemon such as Mareanie and Spritzee, both of which it has a chance to OHKO at +2 after Stealth Rock. Protect prevents Cherubi from being revenge-killed by Trapinch's First Impression, while Dazzling Gleam helps Cherubi defeat bulkier Vullaby sets after a Growth boost. u also beat bj vull after rocks at +0 Giga Drain is usable for providing Cherubi a decent damaging move outside of Sun. Eviolite grants Cherubi more bulk to set up a Growth boost and survive chip damage from priority ud want to emphasize the pawn mu w/ evio i think, seeing as how it gets weather ball compared 2 oddish, while Life Orb guarantees OHKOs against Mareanie and Spritzee, the latter after Stealth Rock.

Cherubi is dead-weight without Sun, and thus Vulpix is a mandatory teammate which can also use Memento to provide Cherubi opportunities to set up and sweep. Oddish is another partner that benefits from Chlorophyll and Sun. make sure to mention they break down each others checks Cherubi struggles heavily against Munchlax and Vullaby, the latter without a Growth boost and Dazzling Gleam, and thus appreciates Onix and Galarian Farfetch'd as teammates. Support from a Knock Off user like Galarian Farfetch'd or Vullaby can also help Cherubi beat bulkier defensive Pokemon.

Clarify which slot Giga Drain is an option (over Solar Beam, over Protect, over Growth?). Clarify that LO guarantees the OHKO on Spritzee/Mareanie at +2, but I'd prefer that you give an example of LO Solar Beam (or Weather Ball) OHKOing something important at +0 because you already brought these two up earlier.

Make sure to add zizalith to the credits.

Otherwise this is good, 2/2

Cherubi is the Little Cup tier's most potent Sun abuser sun attacker and, after a Growth boost, an incredibly dangerous sweeper becomes capable of tearing through most Pokemon in the tier. Weather Ball is Cherubi's biggest advantage over fellow Cholorphyll user (RH) Oddish, allowing Cherubi it to break through Steel-types like Pawniard and Ferroseed under the sun. Growth sharply boosts Cherubi's attacking stats under the sun to extreme power with Sun, allowing it to break through bulkier defensive Pokemon such as Mareanie and Spritzee, both of which it has a chance to OHKO at +2 after Stealth Rock. Healing Wish lets Cherubi fully heal Oddish on double Chlorophyll sun Sun teams rather than sweep itself. Protect prevents Cherubi from being revenge killed (RH) by Trapinch's First Impression, while Dazzling Gleam helps Cherubi reliably beat Vullaby, especially at +2. Giga Drain is an option over Protect to provide Cherubi with a decent damaging move outside of Sun sun. Eviolite grants Cherubi more bulk to help set up a with Growth boost and survive chip damage from priority moves, especially Sucker Punch from Pawniard, while Life Orb guarantees OHKOs against Mareanie and Spritzee at +2, the latter after Stealth Rock, and allows Cherubi to OHKO Berry Juice Vullaby most of the time with +0 Sun unboosted sun Weather Ball after Stealth Rock.

Cherubi is dead weight (RH) without Sun sun, and thus so Vulpix is a mandatory teammate, (AC) and it which can also use Memento to provide Cherubi with more opportunities to set up and sweep. Oddish is another partner that benefits from Chlorophyll and Sun sun; Oddish better deals with Vullaby through better with Moonblast, while Cherubi beats Pawniard and Ferroseed. Cherubi struggles heavily against Munchlax and Vullaby, the latter without a Growth boost and Dazzling Gleam, and thus appreciates Onix and Galarian Farfetch'd as teammates. Support from a Knock Off user like Galarian Farfetch'd or Vullaby can also help Cherubi beat bulkier defensive Pokemon.
