[SET COMMENTS]

Decidueye's niche as a Ghost-type wallbreaker is similar to Golurk's, however, its access to U-turn, higher Speed, and its ability to better check Xurkitree set it apart. However, it is substantially weaker, has no Ground-type STAB moves to immediately threaten Ghost-neutral Steel-types, and can't block Volt Switch. Poltergeist is Decidueye's strongest attack, threatening the likes of Togekiss and Noivern. U-turn gains momentum against negative matchups such as Incineroar and Zarude. Shadow Sneak is a useful priority move that can hit threats such as Polteageist and Chandelure. Alternatively, Spirit Shackle is a decent option with Knock Off support to pressure Flying-types such as Togekiss, in addition to giving free momentum. Brave Bird hits Grass-types harder and has a chance to OHKO Vileplume after minimal chip damage, 2HKO Tangela after Stealth Rock, and OHKO Bewear with Long Reach, but recoil damage can be a problem. Long Reach lets Decidueye use U-turn without fearing Rocky Helmet damage. Adamant is used to always OHKO Polteageist after Stealth Rock, Noivern, and Calm Mind Reuniclus.

Raikou and Barraskewda give Decidueye free switches to wallbreak, luring in Pokemon such as Celebi and Milotic as well as using Volt Switch and Flip Turn, respectively. Other VoltTurn partners such as Noivern, Mienshao, and Flygon also make good teammates, as Decidueye can take advantage of some of their switch-ins like Gastrodon and Reuniclus. Fire-types such as Darmanitan and Chandelure can outspeed and revenge kill Decidueye, so answers to these threats like Gastrodon and Milotic make excellent partners. Incineroar counters Decidueye, so partners that can threaten it are near essential , such as Mienshao and Volcanion. Pokemon like Metagross and Durant appreciate Decidueye's ability to threaten bulky Water-types; in return, Metagross checks Flying-types such as Togekiss and Crobat, while Durant can weaken Incineroar with Superpower.

Since you asked me to check this i did Voyager there are a lot of Glaring and Obvious mistakes you can fix before your first QC. Remember moves and Pokemon names are capitalized like this Knock Off please look over what you wrote. Also pokemon types are capitilized like Water-type or Ghost.

Decidueye finds itself with a niche as a Ghost-type breaker akin to Golurk; it sets itself apart from Golurk with its access to U-turn,(AC) and higher speed as(AP) well as its ability to better check a correctly predicting Xurkitree. However it is substantially weaker and has no ground stab to immediatly(Mispelled) threaten non Ghost weak steels and also can't block Volt Switch. Poltergeist is chosen as it is Decidueye's strongest stab.(Should probably say something else instead of it is chosen because its its strongest move perhaps say what it threatens? ie Crobat, Noivern) U-turn is used in order to gain momentum vs things Decidueye loses to such as Incineroar. Leaf Blade is good to hit bulky waters and is also a good accurate stab. The first three slots are the only real locks on Decidueye, the last slot has some flexibility(Saying the first 3 slots are locked in is very irrelevant same with the last slot just explain the moves). Shadow sneak is good useful as speed control priority that is relatively powerful with stab(Don't tell me how strong Shadow Sneak is tell me what its useful for). Brave bird gives it the option to hit grass types harder and has a chance to ohko OHKO Vileplume after rocks however recoil can be a problem(Vileplume can run Heavy-Duty Boots and also mention OHKO's Bewear with Long Reach or better yet ask QC if you can remove BB from this analysis). Spirit Shackle is a good option on teams with knock off(why?) in order to pressure mons such as Togekiss after their item has been removed and its trapping effect allows you to gain free momentum. Long reach lets Decidueye click U-Turn without fearing Rocky Helmet damage from Cobalion. Overgrow lets a weakened Decidueye hit very hard with leaf blade however this is very situational and often one is better off using poltergeist even when leaf blade is powered up. The given evs allow Decidueye to outspeed toxtricity and speed tie with max speed Cloyster and Choice Band Metagross.(I don't think you need to explain the EVs of a Choice Band set just explain what a Timid Nature can do.) Timid is run to oustpeed the aforementioned Cloytser,(AC) and Metagross Volcanion,(AC) and Modest Toxtricity,(should probably just mention Cloyster>Toxtricity adamant is a good option as well for noticeably more power, however it misses out on outspeeding modest Toxtricity. Decidueye can run a specially defensive defog set with heavy duty boots and roost, which checks electrics whilst removing hazards. Toxic can be run in the last slot to cripple certain defnsive mons such as Tangela and Incineroar.(Ask QC whether to include this set or not I really am leaning towards not)

Pokemon that invite in electrics appreciate Decdiueye's ability to take hits and then wallbreak or gain momentum such as Togekiss and crobat.(This isn't really true as Electric types can just Volt Switch for almost no penalty) Zarude also outspeeds and KOs Decidueye so good switchins such as the aformentioned Togekiss and (Coballion) make good partners.(This section really just needs to be changed) Fire types like Darmanitan and Chandelure are very threatening to Decidueye so bulky water such as Vaporeon and Milotic serve as good partners. Electric types such as Raikou and Xurkitree serve as togekiss checks and can get Decidueye in safely via volt switch, Raikou also tends to lure in water-ground Ground-type Pokemon(Like?) that Decidueye can abuse. Mienshao is also an excellent partner for its ability to threaten steel types for Decidueye and also form a volTurn core.(Decidueye can threaten all of our Steel-types on its own so change the reasoning or don't mention it) The specially defensive defog set really enjoys nasty plot Togekiss as partner as it invites in electrics for it to check as well as removing hazards that togekiss is giving up on removing by foregoing defog.(Unless a QC member tells you to include this set as a mention don't)

Inlude in the teammates section

you should include what teammates can bring in Decidueye for wallbreaking. Noivern, Talonflame, Crobat. Darmantian,. on top of Raikou and xurk that you mentioned
Yes Decidueye is a slow wallbreaker threatened by like half the metagame so you perhaps should mention how to get it in safely instead of mentioning what threatens it. Would remove mention of Zarude threatening it.
Teammates that can Threaten Incineroar

Decidueye finds itself with a niche as a ghost type Ghost-type breaker akin to Golurk; it sets itself apart from Golurk i would broaden this to Ghost-type competition or something similar, chandy and awak are p similar too with its access to U-turn, higher speed as (space) well as its ability to better check Xurkitree. However, (AC) it is substantially weaker, (AC) and has no ground stab to immediately threaten non Ghost weak steels and also can't block Volt Switch. Poltergeist is chosen as it is Decidueye's strongest attack and threatens the likes of Togekiss and Noivern as (space) well as hitting neutral targets the hardest. U-turn is used in order to gain momentum vs against things Decidueye loses to wordy. try "negative matchups" or similar such as Incineroar and Zarude. Leaf Blade is good to hits bulky waters and is also a good accurate stab. Shadow sneak is useful priority that can hit threats such as Polteageist and Chandelure. Brave bird gives it the option to hit grass types Grass-types harder and has a chance to ohko vileplume OHKO Vileplume after minimal chip and OHKO Bewear with Long Reach, however, (AC) recoil can be a problem. gimme 1 more example Spirit Shackle is a good decent (its not great) option on teams with Knock Off in order to pressure mons Flying-types such as Togekiss after their item has been removed, this is because removing an item means Poltergeist fails, and its trapping effect also allows you to gain free momentum. Long reach lets Decidueye click uU-turn without fearing Rocky Helmet damage mention bewear. Overgrow lets a weakened Decidueye hit very hard with leaf blade however this is very situational and often one is better off using poltergeist even when leaf blade is powered up this one is confusing. if its a bad choice why mention it at all? what situations would make an overgrow leaf blade more useful? be specific or remove it from the set. Jolly is run to oustpeedd Cloyster and Choice Band Metagross. Adamant is a good option for noticeably more power, however it misses out on outspeeding modest Toxtricity. these examples seem kinda bad to me (might be cuz I'm washed) mention outspeeding toxtricity on jolly, also is there any difference in calcs between ada and jolly cause right now ada seems pretty bad Toxic can be run in the last slot to cripple certain defensive mons such as Tangela and Incineroar. just uturn on these

Decidueye is a frail wallbreaker that is threatened by half the metagame not really, the defensive typing is good (see dhelmise) and it has a p good special defense. be more specific or reword., so whilst a defensive core is appreciated Decidueye also appreciates Pokemon that can give it switch ins to wallbreaker. Raikou and Barraskewda are good partners for thier their ability to invite in water-ground Pokemon such as Gastrodon and Seismitoad as well as gain momentum with Volt Switch and Flip Turn respectively. Fire types such as Darmanitan and Chandelure threaten to outspeed and revenge Decidueye so answers to these fire types like Vaporeon and Milotic make excellent partners. Incineroar is a very good stop to Decidueye so Pokémon that can threaten it are near essential partners, such Pokemon include Mienshao and Volcanion. Pokemon that form volTurn VoltTurn cores like Xurkitree and Noivern make good partners. Pokemon like Metagross and Durant appreciate Decidueye's ability to threaten bulky water types.

Decidueye finds itself with a niche as a ghost type Ghost-type wallbreaker akin to Golurk; it sets itself apart from Golurk and other ghosts like Alolan Marowak and Chandelure (I would stick to just Golurk, as it's its main competition.) with its access to U-turn, higher Speed speed as well as its ability to better check Xurkitree. However, it is substantially weaker, has no Ground-type STAB ground stab to immediately threaten non Ghost weak Steel-types steels and also can't block Volt Switch. Poltergeist is Decidueye's strongest attack and threatens the likes of Togekiss and Noivern as well as hitting neutral targets the hardest. (You already mentioned how Poltergeist is its strongest move, so it goes without saying that it'll hit neutral targets the hardest.) U-turn is used in order to gain momentum against things Decidueye's negative matchups such as Incineroar and Zarude. Leaf Blade hits bulky waters and is accurate. (Self-explanatory.) Shadow Sneak sneak is useful priority that can hit threats such as Polteageist and Chandelure. Brave bird gives it the option to hit Grass-types harder and has a chance to OHKO Vileplume after minimal chip, 2HKOes Tangela after Stealth Rock, and OHKO Bewear with Long Reach and trigger Golisopod's ability from full (so does Poltergeist), however, recoil can be a problem. Spirit Shackle is a decent option on teams with Knock Off users in order to pressure Flying-types such as Togekiss after their item has been removed and its trapping effect also allows you to gain free momentum. (Mention Spirit Shackle before Brave Bird.) Long reach lets Decidueye U-turn without fearing Rocky Helmet damage and OHKO Bewear with Brave Bird. Overgrow lets a weakened Decidueye hit neutral targets hardest with leaf blade, however ghost is a better offensive typing so despite the extra base power there are some scenrios where Poltergeist is better even when Leaf Blade is powered up. (Yeah, Overgrow is way too niche to ever use it over Long Reach.) Jolly is run to oustpeed Volcanion and Modest Toxtricity. (Jolly just doesn't seem worth it. You live any hit from Specs Toxtricity anyways.) Adamant is used a good option to always OHKO Polteageist after Stealth Rock, stealth rock always OHKO Noivern, and always OHKO Calm Mind Reuniclus, however it misses out on outspeeding modest Toxtricity.

Decidueye is a wallbreaker above all else, so whilst a defensive core is appreciated Decidueye also appreciates Pokemon that can give it free switches switch ins to wallbreak. Raikou and Barraskewda are good partners for their ability to invite in Pokemon such as Celebi Gastrodon and Milotic Seismitoad as well as gain momentum with Volt Switch and Flip Turn respectively. (They're immune to both Volt and Flip Turn, so I thought other examples would be better to go along with the momentum point.) Other VoltTurn partners such as Noivern, Mienshao, and Flygon also make good teammates, as Decidueye can take advantage of some of their switch-ins like Gastrodon and Reuniclus. Fire-types (Add hyphen) such as Darmanitan and Chandelure threaten to outspeed and revenge kill Decidueye so answers to these Fire-types fire types like Vaporeon (Vaporeon is currently UR so probably should replace it) and Milotic make excellent partners. Incineroar is a very good stop to Decidueye so Pokémon that can threaten it are near essential partners, such Pokemon include Mienshao and Volcanion. Pokemon that form VoltTurn cores like Xurkitree and Noivern make good partners. (I moved this up and explained why they're good partners.) Pokemon like Metagross and Durant appreciate Decidueye's ability to threaten bulky Water-types water types. In return, Metagross checks Flying-types such as Togekiss and Crobat while Durant can weaken Incineroar with Superpower. (Always good to add on what the Pokemon's partners can do for it.)

None of our steel types resist ghost. It fails to threaten the Steel types that are not ghost weak as immediately as Golurk
