Choice Specs allows Gholdengo to utilize it excellent typing and dual STABs to act as a powerful wallbreaker. Shadow Ball is a spammable STAB move that 2HKOs nearly everything that doesn't resist it such as Volcarona, Amoonguss, and Toxapex and can particularly devastating with a SpDef drop. Make it Rain can catch typical switch ins to Shadow Ball like Ting-Lu and Garganacl and deal heavy damage. Trick allows Gholdengo to cripple defensive Pokemon such as Clodsire and Amoonguss while Focus Blast allows Gholdengo to OHKO Kingambit. Tera Fighting enables Gholdengo to lose weaknesses to Ghost, Dark and Fire and gain an important resistances to Dark moves. This allows Gholdengo to tank a Crunch from Chien Pao, Knock Off from Meowscarada or Pyro Ball from Cinderace and KO back with Make it Rain. Tera Steel on the other hand powers up Make It Rain while still losing the Dark and Ghost weakness. A Tera Steel Make It Rain easily 2HKOs Clodsire, even without Unaware, and needs only a some chip damage to 2HKO Ting-Lu doing 80% damage over 2 hits.

Choice Specs Gholdengo has great surprise value and can be used to lure and deal heavy damage to typical checks like Volcarona, Ting-Lu and Corviknight with the right coverage move. This can potentially open up the way for other sweeper like Iron Valiant and Iron Moth to wreak havoc. Since Gholdengo has a rather middling Speed tier, Volt Switch and U-Turn from the likes of Scizor, Meowscarda, Cinderace, Corviknight and Rotom-W can bring Gholdengo in safely to break an opponent's team. Gholdengo is also prone to being revenged by fast physical Dark types like Meowscarda, Chien-Pao and Kingambit. Thus, switch-ins which can tank physical hits like Dondozo and Corviknight are appreciated. Dondozo can potentially deal with Chien-Pao and Kingambit while Corviknight can tackle Meowscarada while also being able to bring in Gholdengo with slow a U-Turn.

Choice Specs allows Gholdengo to utilize its excellent typing and dual STABs to act as a powerful wallbreaker. Shadow Ball is a spammable STAB move that 2HKOs nearly everything that doesn't resist it such as Volcarona, Amoonguss, and physically defensive Toxapex (sp def toxa lives 2 shadow ball )and can being particularly devastating with a SpDef drop. Make it Rain is a strong 120 base power move , which can catch typical switch ins to Shadow Ball like Ting-Lu and Garganacl and deal heavy damage. Trick allows Gholdengo to cripple its defensive switch-ins Pokemon such as Clodsire , Ting-Lu and Amoonguss while Focus Blast allows Gholdengo to OHKO Kingambit. Tera Fighting enables Gholdengo to lose its weaknesses to flips its type weaknesses Ghost, Dark and Fire (you forgot ground - its a long list ) and gain an important resistances to Dark type moves . This allows Gholdengo to tank a Crunch from Chien Pao, Knock Off from Meowscarada or live a (2hko) Pyro Ball from Cinderace and KO back with Make it Rain and Focus Blast respectively (cinderace lives a make it rain - being a fire type). Tera Steel on the other hand powers up Make It Rain while still losing the Dark and Ghost weaknesses. A Tera Steel Make It Rain easily 2HKOs Clodsire, even without Unaware, and needs only a some chip damage to 2HKO Ting-Lu doing 80% 70% (sp atk drop) damage over 2 hits.

Choice Specs Gholdengo has great surprise value and can be used to lure and deal heavy damage to typical checks like Volcarona, Ting-Lu and Corviknight with the right coverage move with Shadow Ball , Focus Blast and Thunderbolt respectively. This can potentially open up the way for other sweeper like Iron Valiant and Iron Moth to wreak havoc (Iron moth already beats both corv and volc alone , similarly valiant beats both ting-lu and corv with the right set , maybe name something more which is hard walled by 1-2 of the stated mons - like Chien-pao or dragonite ). Since Gholdengo has a rather middling Speed tier it appreciates Volt Switch support and U-Turn from the likes of Scizor, Meowscarda, Cinderace, Corviknight and Rotom-W can bring Gholdengo in safely to break an opponent's team from Rotom-W , U-turn from Meowscarada and Cinderace , and Chilly Reception from Slowking to safely switch in on the opposing pokemon. Gholdengo is also prone to being revenged killed by fast physical Dark types like Meowscarda, Chien-Pao , Cinderace , and sucker punch users like Kingambit .and Kingambit.(Kingambit is not faster) Thus, switch-ins which can tank physical hits like Dondozo and Corviknight are appreciated make for good partners for Gholdengo. Physically invested Dondozo (certain sets run sp def to make for its low sp def stat but they get wrecked by cb tera dark chien-pao) can potentially deal with Chien-Pao and Kingambit while Corviknight can tackle Meowscarada while also being able to safely bring in Gholdengo with slow a U-Turn.

Choice Specs allows Gholdengo to utilize its excellent typing and dual STABs moves to act as a powerful wallbreaker. Shadow Ball is a spammable STAB move that 2HKOs nearly everything that doesn't resist it such as Volcarona, Amoonguss, and Toxapex and can particularly devastating with a SpDef drop. Make it Rain can catch typical switch ins to Shadow Ball like Ting-Lu and Garganacl and deal heavy damage. You don't really need to go into too much detail as to why Shadow Ball and Make It Rain are great seperately. Merge these two sentences together as you had started talking about STAB moves together and just briefly mention what they hit. Trick allows Gholdengo to cripple defensive Pokemon such as Clodsire and Amoonguss Amoonguss gets 2HKOd guaranteed, and Clodsire only needs minor chip to get 2HKOd, you can talk about Ting-Lu and Curse Dondozo, but emphasise that Trick onto these mons should be last case scenario while Focus Blast allows Gholdengo to OHKO Kingambit. Tera Fighting enables Gholdengo to lose weaknesses to Ghost, Dark and Fire and gain an important resistances to Dark moves. This allows Gholdengo to tank a Crunch from Chien Pao, Knock Off from Meowscarada, Sucker Punch from Kingambit or Pyro Ball from Cinderace and OHKO all of them in return KO back with Make it Rain. Tera Steel on the other hand powers up Make It Rain while still losing the Dark and Ghost weakness. A Tera Steel Make It Rain easily 2HKOs Clodsire, even without Unaware, and needs only a some chip damage to 2HKO Ting-Lu doing 80% damage over 2 hits.

Choice Specs Gholdengo has great surprise value and can be used to lure and deal heavy damage to typical checks like Volcarona, Ting-Lu Clodsire and Corviknight with the right coverage move. This can potentially open up the way for other sweepers like Iron Valiant and Iron Moth to clean late game wreak havoc. Since Gholdengo has a rather middling Speed tier, it appreciates Volt Switch and U-Turn from the likes of Scizor, Meowscarda, Cinderace, Corviknight and Rotom-W as they can bring Gholdengo in safely to break an opponent's team. Gholdengo is also prone to being revenged KOd by fast physical Dark types like Roaring Moon Meowscarda, Chien-Pao and Kingambit. Thus, switch-ins which can tank counters that can take physical hits like Great Tusk, Dondozo, and Corviknight are appreciated. Dondozo can potentially deal with wall Heavy-Duty Boots Chien-Pao and Kingambit while Corviknight and Great Tusk can check Choice Band Chien-Pao and Utility Roaring Moon. can tackle Meowscarada while also being able to bring in Gholdengo with slow a U-Turn.

Implement and I'll take another look.

pratik2007 your check was alright mate. Without looking at yours, I have changed, added or commented everywhere that you have pointed out, which means you recognise where things can be improved and can notice redundancy. Some stuff you mentioned doesn't need a mention, like Slowking as it fits a very specific structure and is more niche than any other pivot. And like I said, you can notice where improvement is needed, but I think you're being a bit timid with it, don't be afraid to reword stuff or comment on anything you feel needs a reword or change.
