Moves
========

Petal Dance is Lilligant's most spammable move, as it doesn't have to worry about confusion due to Own Tempo, but a major flaw in this move is that Lilligant cannot switch out during the turns the move is active for. Therefore, another option is Leaf Storm, which serves as a solid one-time powerful hit when Lilligant comes onto the field but has a catch in the fact that it lowers Lilligant's Special Attack by two stages. Giga Drain is a safer move to use, albeit with much less power, and does have the benefit of making Lilligant slightly harder to wear down through things like entry hazards. The Hidden Power type varies depending on what Pokemon Lilligant wants to not be walled by. Hidden Power Fire hits Alolan Sandslash and Hidden Power Rock hits Oricorio-E and Articuno. Healing Wish allows Lilligant to support its teammates late-game at the cost of KOing itself in the process.

Set Details
========

Own Tempo should be run alongside Petal Dance to stop it from triggering confusion. If running Leaf Storm, Own Tempo does little to nothing, so the slightly less situational option is Chlorophyll.

Usage Tips
========

A large niche Choice Specs Lilligant has is the ability to lure in foes expecting it to be running Quiver Dance. It can use this as an opportunity to fire off one of its powerful STAB moves or coverage moves on Pokemon like Oricorio-E. However, be wary that Lilligant will be locked into that single move. The main example of this is in Petal Dance, which should ideally only be used when threats such as Skuntank and Alolan Exeggutor have been taken out or weakened into KO range because it allows them to easily revenge kill Lilligant or use it as setup fodder. Due to being somewhat frail, Lilligant should be brought in as a revenge killer or through a slow pivot like Lanturn. Lilligant can also serve as a nice wallbreaker, having a good matchup against various bulky Pokemon like Regirock and Mudsdale. When Lilligant is weakened, it can use Healing Wish to heal up another weakened teammate.

Team Options
========

Pokemon like Lanturn, Qwilfish, and Clefairy can use Thunder Wave to paralyze foes like Simisear, Scyther, and Swanna, which are otherwise faster than Lilligant. Knock Off users like Eelektross and Gurdurr can do similar by removing Choice Scarf from Pokemon like Mesprit and Kabutops. Lanturn and Eelektross also provide slow pivots to get Lilligant onto the field safely, while Clefairy and Qwilfish can set entry hazards to help wear down foes and put them into KO range. Regirock is another notable hazard setter, as it checks large threats to Lilligant in Scyther and Skuntank. These Pokemon can also be offensively checked by wallbreakers like Stoutland and Kangaskhan, which appreciate Lilligant breaking through their defensive threats like Regirock and Mudsdale. Setup sweepers like Lycanroc and Dodrio also benefit from these foes being weakened and can clean up the match for Lilligant. Lilligant can give these Pokemon a potential second chance to wallbreak or sweep by supporting one of them with Healing Wish. Due to being locked into a single move every time it comes in, Lilligant switches a lot. Because of this, it is vulnerable to hazards, so removers like Kabutops and Swanna come in handy. Both of these Pokemon can also run Choice Scarf and serve as cleaners for the match.

Moves
========

  • Petal Dance is Lilligant's most spammable move, and it doesn't have to worry about confusion due to Own Tempo.
  • However, a major flaw in this move is that it means Lilligant cannot switch out during these turns, (put this at the end of the first point as it pertains to Petal Dance) so another option is Leaf Storm. Leaf Storm serves as a solid nuke when Lilligant comes onto the field. (at the expense of lowering Lilligant's Special Attack 2 stages.)
  • Giga Drain is a safer move to use, albeit with much less power, but does have the benefit of making Lilligant slightly harder to wear down through things like hazards.
  • The Hidden Power type varies depending on what Pokemon Lilligant wants to not be walled by. Hidden Power Rock hits foes like Articuno, Hidden Power Fire hits Alolan Sandslash, and Hidden Power Ice hits Alolan Exeggutor. (you left out Healing Wish in the description.)
Set Details
========

  • Own Tempo should be run alongside Petal Dance to stop it from triggering the confusion.
  • On the other hand, while Chlorophyll is situational, it pairs with Leaf Storm due to still being more useful than Own Tempo in this case.
Usage Tips
========

  • A large niche Choice Specs LIlligant has is being able to lure in foes expecting it to be Quiver Dance. It can use this as an opportunity to fire of its powerful STAB move or coverage on Pokemon like Scyther and Togedemaru.
  • However, stay weary that Lilligant will be locked into that single move. The main example of this is in Petal Dance, which should ideally only be used when threats such as Skuntank have been taken out or weakened into KO range. Because of this, Lilligant serves as a solid late-game cleaner.
  • Due to being somewhat frail, Lilligant should be brought in as a revenge killer or through a slow pivot like Lanturn.
  • Lilligant can also serve as a nice wallbreaker, having a good matchup against various bulky Pokemon like Regirock and Mudsdale.
  • When Lilligant is weakened, it can use Healing Wish to heal up another weakened teammate.

  • Setup sweepers like Lycanroc and Dodrio also benefit from these foes being weakened and can clean up the match for Lilligant.
  • Due to being locked into a single move every time it comes in, Lilligant switches a lot. Because of this, it is prone to hazards, so removers like Kabutops, Swanna, and Skuntank come in handy. All three of these Pokemon can also run Choice Scarf and serve as cleaners for the match.
  • Additionally, Lilligant can support all these Pokemon with Healing Wish if they get worn down throughout the match. (list some examples of setup sweepers that appreciate Healing Wish support.)

  • A large niche Choice Specs LIlligant (Lilligant) has is being able to lure in foes expecting it to be Quiver Dance. It can use this as an opportunity to fire of its powerful STAB move or coverage on Pokemon like Oricorio-E, Alolan Exeggutor, (remove eggy just cuz it loses to quiver dance liligant if it runs hp ice) and Togedemaru.
  • However, stay weary (be wary) that Lilligant will be locked into that single move. The main example of this is in Petal Dance, which should ideally only be used when threats such as Skuntank have been taken out or weakened into KO range. (because it could be revenged killed or give potential setup to faster foes) Because of this, Lilligant serves as a solid late-game cleaner. (just say that it should be used mid-late game imo when faster mons like dodrio are gone -- ideally it should be using healing wish late game to give 2nd life to a teammate after wallbreaking)

The Hidden Power type varies depending on what Pokemon Lilligant wants to not be walled by. Hidden Power Fire hits Alolan Sandslash, Hidden Power Ice hits Alolan Exeggutor, and Hidden Power Rock hits Articuno. Healing Wish allows Lilligant to support its teammates late-game. along with moving fire to the last slash, would mention that rock/ice are also useful vs pompom/sensu. the added utility of hitting pompom as well as the single other target makes rock/ice better than fire imo. plus, eggy and cuno are far worse for lilli to face. look at sandslash's best case scenario lol
252 SpA Choice Specs Lilligant Petal Dance vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Sandslash-Alola: 123-144 (34.7 - 40.6%) -- guaranteed 3HKO



Set Details
========

Own Tempo should be run alongside Petal Dance to stop it from triggering confusion. On the other hand, while Chlorophyll is situational, it pairs with Leaf Storm due to still being more useful than Own Tempo in this case. i don't even understand what the second sentence is saying. i get what it's meant to say, but I dont get what it actually says

Because of this, Lilligant serves as a solid mid- to late-game cleaner see idk about this conclusion. u actively lure in and 2hko skuntank, this should be wearing down things like alolan sandslash on its own instead of trying to clean after. if you want to clean, I'd be using quiver dance. this is best as early game breaker except for very specific matchups where, for example, u really dont want to be letting their eggy in or u cant effectively get rocks up to pressure cuno. Due to being somewhat frail, Lilligant should be brought in as a revenge killer or through a slow pivot like Lanturn.

Therefore, (AC) another option is Leaf Storm, which serves as a solid nuke (nuke feels too casual for an analysis, try using a similar word to convey this) when Lilligant comes onto the field, (RC) but has a catch in the fact that it lowers Lilligant's Special Attack by 2 two stages. Giga Drain is a safer move to use, albeit with much less power, and does have the benefit of making Lilligant slightly harder to wear down through things like hazards. The Hidden Power type varies depending on what Pokemon Lilligant wants to not be walled by. Hidden Power Ice hits Alolan Exeggutor and Oricorio-E, Hidden Power Rock hits Oricorio-G and Articuno, and Hidden Power Fire hits Alolan Sandslash. Healing Wish allows Lilligant to support its teammates late-game. (maybe something about it having to KO itself, optional tho)


Set Details
========

Own Tempo should be run alongside Petal Dance to stop it from triggering confusion. If running Leaf Storm, Own Tempo does nothing. (it still blocks confusion in general so it kinda has a niche there, but up to you on what to do with it) Therefore, (AC) Chlorophyll is run instead, albeit it's still pretty situational.

Moves
========

Petal Dance is Lilligant's most spammable move, as it doesn't have to worry about confusion due to Own Tempo, but a major flaw in this move is that Lilligant cannot switch out during the turns the move is active for. Therefore, another option is Leaf Storm, which serves as a solid one-time powerful hit when Lilligant comes onto the field but has a catch in the fact that it lowers Lilligant's Special Attack by two stages. Giga Drain is a safer move to use, albeit with much less power, and does have the benefit of making Lilligant slightly harder to wear down through things like entry hazards. The Hidden Power type varies depending on what Pokemon Lilligant wants to not be walled by. Hidden Power Ice hits Alolan Exeggutor and Oricorio-E, Hidden Power Rock hits Oricorio-G and Articuno, and Hidden Power Fire hits Alolan Sandslash. Healing Wish allows Lilligant to support its teammates late-game at the cost of KOing itself in the process.

Set Details
========

Own Tempo should be run alongside Petal Dance to stop it from triggering confusion. If running Leaf Storm, Own Tempo does little to nothing, so the little slightly less situational option is Chlorophyll.

Usage Tips
========

A large niche Choice Specs Lilligant has is the ability to lure in foes expecting it to be running Quiver Dance. It can use this as an opportunity to fire off one of its powerful STAB moves or coverage moves on Pokemon like Oricorio-E. However, be wary that Lilligant will be locked into that single move. The main example of this is in Petal Dance, which should ideally only be used when threats such as Skuntank and Alolan Exeggutor have been taken out or weakened into KO range because it allows them to easily revenge kill Lilligant or use it as setup fodder. Due to being somewhat frail, Lilligant should be brought in as a revenge killer or through a slow pivot like Lanturn. Lilligant can also serve as a nice wallbreaker, having a good matchup against various bulky Pokemon like Regirock and Mudsdale. When Lilligant is weakened, it can use Healing Wish to heal up another weakened teammate.

Team Options
========

Pokemon like Lanturn, Qwilfish, and Clefairy can use Thunder Wave to paralyze foes like Simisear, Scyther, and Swanna, which are otherwise faster than Lilligant. Knock Off users like Eelektross and Gurdurr can do similar by removing Choice Scarf from Pokemon like Mesprit and Kabutops. Lanturn and Eelektross also provide slow pivots to get Lilligant onto the field safely, while Clefairy and Qwilfish can set entry hazards to help wear down foes and put them into KO range. Regirock is another notable hazard setter, as it checks large threats to Lilligant in Scyther and Skuntank. These Pokemon can also be offensively checked by wallbreakers like Stoutland and Kangaskhan, which appreciate Lilligant breaking through their defensive threats like Regirock and Mudsdale. Setup sweepers like Lycanroc and Dodrio also benefit from these foes being weakened and can clean up the match for Lilligant. Lilligant can give these Pokemon a potential second chance to wallbreak or sweep by supporting one of them with Healing Wish. Due to being locked into a single move every time it comes in, Lilligant switches a lot. Because of this, it is vulnerable to hazards, so removers like Kabutops and Swanna come in handy. Both of these Pokemon can also run Choice Scarf and serve as cleaners for the match.
