(Huge thanks to mienscapone for the gorgeous banner! Check out her DeviantArt page for more quality art!)

This giveaway aims at providing everyone with some of the most relevant Pokémon of the VGC '19 Sun Series format, fully trained and ready to be used in battle! Trying out new strategies has never been easier, and hopefully this can encourage newcomers to try out this format on Wi-Fi. 40 different Pokémon are currently being given away including 13 restricted legendaries!

-----------------------------​

NEWS (22/02/19):

- The new update for the Moon series is now live!
- I made changes to several of the Sun Series sets in order to reflect the current meta.
- 5 new Pokémon have been added (Landorus-T, Gengar, Shedinja, Raichu and Kommo-o)!
- Some of the more niche Pokémon from the Sun format have not been getting much usage so far, so I left those sets untouched for now rather than remove them.
- Because major changes were made to them, the following Pokémon may now be requested again by those who already requested them during the Sun format: Smeargle, Kartana, Stakataka, Drifblim.
- The following Pokémon had only minor changes to them that one can easily reproduce from a previous request, and may not be requested for a second time: Lunala (item, moveset), Groudon (EV spread), Ho-Oh (item), Palkia (item, moveset), Tapu Koko (moveset), Tapu Fini (moveset), Ludicolo (item, moveset), Whimsicott (moveset), Toxicroak (moveset), Talonflame (item), Salazzle (moveset).​

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Before you request any Pokémon, it is essential that you carefully read this information and fully abide to the rules:
  • All Pokémon have been bred, soft-reset or RNGed by me. What I am giving away is a cloned copy of these Pokémon (cloned by me). You need to be ok with that.
  • The Pokémon you receive are non-redistributable. They are for your personal use only; do not clone them, do not trade them.
  • Each Pokémon has a limited stock. If the indicated stock is 0, please do not request that Pokémon, wait for the stock to replenish. I will replenish stocks around the start of each week (Monday or Tuesday). It is rumoured that people who request an out-of-stock Pokémon will receive a terrible curse that lasts 10 years. Personally, I wouldn't risk it.
  • Do not request Pokémon that are indicated as out of stock in advance. Wait for it to actually be refilled before placing your request, otherwise I will ask you to request again. Accepting pre-orders from some people would be unfair to others.
  • All Pokémon are level 100, have the black clover marker of Alolan Pokémon, and have been given Pokérus for EV training.
  • You are only allowed to request one copy of each Pokémon.
  • Z-Crystals and Mega Stones cannot be sent through the GTS, so every set that should include one is holding an alternative item, which you can switch out for the Z-Crystal or Mega Stone yourself. Do note that some sets really need their Mega Stone to function (for example, Salamence), so make sure to switch out the item! Mega Stones can be bought at the Battle Tree in USUM.
  • Unless noted, the attached item cannot be customized.
  • Got a question? Make sure you check out the FAQ first at the bottom of this post to be sure it hasn't been answered already!
Ready to order? Here's how you do it!

1. Catch a Cutiefly (they can be found on Route 3 and Melemele Meadow - yes, I know they're only a 20% encounter, you gotta work a little bit for that free Pokémon!).
2. Deposit it on the GTS and ask for the Pokémon you have chosen, level 91+.
3. Fill out the following form and post it as a reply to this thread:
  • Pokémon requested:
  • Level and gender of the Cutiefly:
  • IGN:
4. Be patient! Check the GTS every once in a while; if you got sniped, redeposit and update your post.
5. I will post whenever I distribute a batch of Pokémon. Strike through your post once you've received the Pokémon (please ;_;). Don't delete your posts.

RESTRICTED LEGENDARIES



Modest | Fairy Aura | Power Herb

IVs: 31/8/31/30/31/24 [HP Fire] (Hyper trained to 31/8/31/31/31/31)
EVs: 244 HP / 4 Def / 68 SpAtk / 4 SpDef / 188 Spe
Geomancy / Moonblast / Dazzling Gleam / Protect
In stock: 5
My plan was to catch and give away a regular Xerneas, but the RNG Gods blessed me with this shiny encounter during my efforts, so I simply couldn’t pass on that good fortune! I was especially happy as Xerneas is my favourite legendary!
Xerneas’ moveset is not very flexible, however, Dazzling Gleam could be replaced by Substitute for more occasions to set up. HP Fire could also be used to surprise Ferrothorn, but with rain being very prevalent, it’s probably not worth.
Outspeeds max speed Modest Kyogre / Adamant Groudon. Hits a SpAtk jump point.

Defensive:
252 SpA Lunala Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom vs. 244 HP / 4 SpD Xerneas: 178-211 (76.7 - 90.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Timid | Shadow Shield | Lunalium Z
(substituted to Spell Tag
)
IVs: 24/16/31/30/31/31 (Hyper trained to 31/16/31/31/31/31)
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpAtk / 252 Spe
Moongeist Beam / Psyshock / Tailwind / Protect
In stock: 4
- When paired with Tapu Koko, an Electric Seed is a great item option, getting a defense boost and removing the item for minimal Knock Off damage.
- Wide Guard could be used in any of the last two slots, and has the potential to help deal with both Kyogre and Groudon.
- If your team features Gravity, it’s worth mentioning that Lunala has access to Hypnosis!



Modest | Drizzle | Choice Scarf

IVs: 31/0/31/31/31/31
EVs: 76 HP / 4 Def / 156 SpAtk / 20 SpDef / 252 Spe
Water Spout / Origin Pulse / Ice Beam / Thunder
In stock: 4
- Origin Pulse can be replaced by Scald for a single-target attack that doesn’t miss and prevents Wide Guard from walling you.
- Kyogre doesn't have to be choice-locked; add Protect over Ice Beam and give it a Waterium Z or a 50% Berry!
- If your team has Tailwind support, the Choice Scarf could be traded for Choice Specs for insane amounts of damage.
Hits a SpAtk jump point.

Defensive:
+2 252 SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Moonblast vs. 76 HP / 20 SpD Kyogre: 160-189 (86.4 - 102.1%) -- 12.5% chance to OHKO

Offensive:
156+ SpA Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Tapu Lele in Rain: 148-175 (101.3 - 119.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO



Adamant | Drought | Figy Berry

IVs: 31/31/31/20/31/31
EVs: 220 HP / 156 Atk / 4 Def / 116 SpDef / 12 Spe
Precipice Blades / Fire Punch / Swords Dance / Protect
In stock: 5
- Groundium Z is a very good option for a single-target move Ground move of high power; it allows Groudon to bypass Wide Guard for a turn, not worry about missing, and can one-hit KO Incineroar after Intimidate. However, Groudon's bulk and longevity tends to be one of its selling points, so the berry is still preferred on many teams.
- Replacing Swords Dance by Rock Slide to avoid being walled by Ho-Oh can be useful.
- Substitute instead of Swords Dance is a nice option to take advantage of the switches Groudon forces; it also prevents it from getting intimidated.
Speed creeps opposing no speed Groudon. Hits an Atk jump point.

Defensive:
252 SpA Lunala Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom vs. 220 HP / 116 SpD Groudon: 171-202 (84.2 - 99.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ SpA Kyogre Origin Pulse vs. 220 HP / 116 SpD Groudon in Sun: 80-96 (39.4 - 47.2%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252+ SpA Tapu Lele Psyshock vs. 220 HP / 4 Def Groudon in Psychic Terrain: 84-100 (41.3 - 49.2%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252+ SpA Tapu Lele Moonblast vs. 220 HP / 116 SpD Groudon: 85-102 (41.8 - 50.2%) -- 0.4% chance to 2HKO
4 Atk Incineroar Flare Blitz vs. 220 HP / 4 Def Groudon in Sun: 87-103 (42.8 - 50.7%) -- 2.3% chance to 2HKO



Jolly | Dark Aura | Black Glasses

IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31
EVs: 12 HP / 196 Atk / 4 Def / 44 SpDef / 252 Spe
Knock Off / Sucker Punch / Tailwind / Protect
In stock: 3
- If your team doesn’t need Tailwind support or a different Pokémon provides it, Foul Play is an excellent choice in the third slot to ignore Intimidate.
- An Assault Vest is a great item choice; in addition fo Foul Play, Snarl should be added to that moveset to cripple Xerneas and Kyogre.
- For more staying power, you can replace the Black Glasses with a Terrain Seed (Misty or Psychic works best) or a 50% Berry.
Speed ties with max speed Xerneas for a chance to Knock Off its Power Herb and prevent Geomancy.

Defensive:
252+ SpA Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. 12 HP / 68 SpD Yveltal in Rain: 168-198 (82.7 - 97.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ SpA Tapu Lele Moonblast vs. 12 HP / 68 SpD Yveltal: 168-200 (82.7 - 98.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ Atk Groudon Fire Punch vs. 12 HP / 0 Def Yveltal in Sun: 82-97 (40.3 - 47.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO



Adamant | Full Metal Body | Expert Belt

IVs: 31/31/31/25/31/31
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def / 68 SpDef / 180 Spe
Sunsteel Strike / Superpower / Wide Guard / Protect
In stock: 3
Superpower allows Solgaleo to OHKO Incineroar, bypassing Intimidate thanks to Full Metal Body; this feat is a big reason to prefer Solgaleo over Necrozma-Dusk Mane!
- Thanks to Full Metal Body preventing Intimidate, Solgaleo is a good Z-move user, ensuring it will always be at full power. Solganium Z and Fightinium Z are both good options, the latter allowing to bypass the stat drops of Superpower.
- Wide Guard can be replaced by more coverage; Zen Headbutt is STAB and hits Kyogre for neutral damage, while Flare Blitz will often be Sun-boosted, and Wild Charge helps deal with both Kyogre and Ho-Oh.
- Solgaleo can offer the team speed control through Trick Room; though it’s a bit fast to really abuse it, it can be crucial against Geomancy Xerneas or Scarf Kyogre.
- Since it has good bulk, Solgaleo can run a Weakness Policy, though this set is usually preferred on Necrozma-Dusk Mane.
Outspeeds max speed Smeargle.

Defensive:
252+ SpA Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. 4 HP / 68 SpD Solgaleo in Rain: 178-211 (83.5 - 99%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ Atk Groudon Precipice Blades vs. 4 HP / 4 Def Solgaleo: 176-210 (82.6 - 98.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ Atk Ho-Oh Sacred Fire vs. 4 HP / 4 Def Solgaleo: 176-210 (82.6 - 98.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ SpA Ludicolo Scald vs. 4 HP / 68 SpD Solgaleo in Rain: 91-108 (42.7 - 50.7%) -- 2% chance to 2HKO

Offensive:
252+ Atk Expert Belt Solgaleo Superpower vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Incineroar: 204-240 (100.9 - 118.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ Atk Expert Belt Solgaleo Sunsteel Strike vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Xerneas: 245-290 (105.1 - 124.4%) -- guaranteed OHKO



Adamant | Pressure | Flyinium Z
(substituted to Mago Berry
)
IVs: 31/31/31/19/31/31
EVs: 204 HP / 44 Atk / 4 Def / 20 SpDef / 236 Spe
Sacred Fire / Brave Bird / Tailwind / Recover
In stock: 1
- Flyinium Z allows for a big Flying-type move without the downside of recoil, but a keeping the 50% Berry on is also a good option.
- Recover can be replaced by Roost if losing the Flying-type for the turn sounds advantageous; the weakness to Rock is then halved, but Ho-Oh can get hit by Precipice Blades!
- Protect is always a good option, especially if the team doesn’t have very reliable answers to Kyogre.
Outspeeds max speed Smeargle.

Defensive:
252+ SpA Kyogre Origin Pulse vs. 204 HP / 20 SpD Ho-Oh in Rain: 174-206 (84 - 99.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Mago Berry recovery
252+ Atk Groudon Rock Slide vs. 204 HP / 4 Def Ho-Oh: 172-204 (83 - 98.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Mago Berry recovery
+2 252+ SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Moonblast vs. 204 HP / 20 SpD Ho-Oh: 80-95 (38.6 - 45.8%) -- guaranteed 4HKO after Mago Berry recovery
252 SpA Choice Specs Lunala Moongeist Beam vs. 204 HP / 20 SpD Ho-Oh: 91-108 (43.9 - 52.1%) -- 12.9% chance to 2HKO after Mago Berry recovery
252 SpA Life Orb Tapu Koko Thunderbolt vs. 204 HP / 20 SpD Ho-Oh in Electric Terrain: 166-198 (80.1 - 95.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Mago Berry recovery
252 SpA Tapu Koko Thunder vs. 204 HP / 20 SpD Ho-Oh in Electric Terrain: 158-188 (76.3 - 90.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Mago Berry recovery
252+ SpA Tapu Lele Psychic vs. 204 HP / 20 SpD Ho-Oh in Psychic Terrain: 87-103 (42 - 49.7%) -- guaranteed 4HKO after Mago Berry recovery
252+ SpA Ludicolo Hydro Pump vs. 204 HP / 20 SpD Ho-Oh in Rain: 168-198 (81.1 - 95.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Mago Berry recovery

Offensive:
44+ Atk Ho-Oh Brave Bird vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Xerneas: 102-120 (50.4 - 59.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
44+ Atk Ho-Oh Brave Bird vs. 252 HP / 100 Def Amoonguss: 224-266 (101.3 - 120.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO



Brave | Prism Armor | Weakness Policy

IVs: 31/31/31/8/31/0
EVs: 252 HP / 20 Atk / 36 Def / 196 SpDef
Sunsteel Strike / Photon Geyser / Trick Room / Protect
In stock: 4
Note: Only regular Necrozma can be sent on the GTS, so you will need to request Solgaleo as well, and fuse it with Necrozma yourself using the N-Solarizer (obtained after catching Necrozma in your game). Sunsteel Strike is only learned upon fusion, so the Necrozma comes with Stone Edge as a filler move in the first slot.
4 additional EVs are invested in SpAtk; those EVs would be useless in any stat since four different stats have investment. It’s impossible to make use of them without losing the clutch survival of certain calcs.
- Since it’s a great Trick Room setter with its immense bulk, going a more defensive route with a Terrain Seed over the Weakness Policy is a good option.
- Replacing Photon Geyser with Stone Edge is a popular option, specifically to deal with Incineroar (it helps the Ho-Oh matchup as well).
- Ally Switch takes advantage of Necrozma’s great typing and bulk to create mind games, but is useless against the common Precipice Blades and Water Spout.
Hits an Atk jump point.

Defensive:
+2 252 SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Moonblast vs. 252 HP / 196 SpD Necrozma: 84-99 (41.1 - 48.5%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

252 Atk Black Glasses Dark Aura Yveltal Foul Play vs. 252 HP / 36 Def Prism Armor Necrozma: 168-199 (82.3 - 97.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252 SpA Choice Specs Lunala Moongeist Beam vs. 252 HP / 196 SpD Prism Armor Necrozma: 154-184 (75.4 - 90.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252 SpA Reshiram Fusion Flare vs. 252 HP / 196 SpD Prism Armor Necrozma in Sun: 166-198 (81.3 - 97%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Thousand Arrows / Extreme Speed / Coil / Protect
In stock: 2
Note: EV spread by Victory Road.
- Thousand Arrows could be replaced by Thousand Waves for the ability to trap opponents, but hitting Flying-types is generally more valuable.
Defensive:
252+ SpA Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. +1 68 HP / 236 SpD Zygarde-50% in Rain: 99-117 (51.5 - 60.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO*

252+ Atk Groudon Precipice Blades vs. 68 HP / 4 Def Zygarde-50%: 79-94 (41.1 - 48.9%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252+ Atk Groudon Precipice Blades vs. +1 68 HP / 4 Def Zygarde-50%: 54-64 (28.1 - 33.3%) -- Minuscule chance to 3HKO (same applies to -1 Atk Groudon + neutral Zygarde)
252+ SpA Tapu Lele Moonblast vs. +1 68 HP / 236 SpD Zygarde-50%: 102-120 (53.1 - 62.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO*

Please consider that some attacks deal >50% damage to Zygarde-50%, which triggers its complete form at the end of the turn. Attacks marked with an asterisk (*) turn 2HKOes into 3HKOes after Zygarde changes its form. If you want to test more damage calcs, take into consideration this Zygarde-Complete's max HP of 300.

EVs: 252 SpAtk / 4 SpDef / 252 Spe
Hydro Pump / Thunder / Flamethrower / Protect
In stock: 5
- Spacial Rend, Aura Sphere and Ice Beam can all have their use over either Thunder (if not used on a rain team) or Flamethrower (keep in mind that weather wars with Groudon might see Palkia in sun pretty often, which means a boosted Flamethrower).
Outspeeds max speed Xerneas.

Offensive:

Blue Flare / Earth Power / Tailwind / Protect
In stock: 2
- Earth Power could be replaced by Heat Wave or Fusion Flare for a more accurate Fire-type move, as well as the option of spread damage.
- Though it pairs well with Tapu Lele, a Misty Seed is also a decent option if you’re using Tapu Fini.
Speed ties max. speed Tapu Lele.

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpAtk / 252 Spe
Ice Beam / Fusion Flare / Earth Power / Protect
In stock: 1
Note: Only regular Kyurem can be sent on the GTS, so you will need to request Reshiram as well, and fuse it with Kyurem yourself using the DNA Splicers (obtained in the basement of Aether Paradise after completing the Rainbow Rocket episode). Fusion Flare can only be learned after the fusion by giving a Heart Scale to the Move Reminder, so Kyurem will come with Draco Meteor as a filler move in the second slot.
- If your team features Snow Warning, Hail or Gravity, feel free to replace Ice Beam with Blizzard; otherwise, its shaky accuracy isn’t worth the gamble.
- You can boost Kyurem’s damage output with a Life Orb or Choice Specs, at the cost of survivability. Alternatively, a Choice Scarf or an Assault Vest can also be good item choices. In all those cases, replace Protect with either Draco Meteor or Glaciate, the latter being a stronger version of Icy Wind, especially useful on Assault Vest variants!

- U-turn can be replaced by Roar to get rid of Xerneas’ boosts if it tries to Geomancy early; it also helps prevent Trick Room.
- Snarl is useful as well and compliments Intimidate for further damage reduction.

Psyshock / Moonblast / Taunt / Protect
In stock: 3
Pay close attention to ability activations at the start of the first turn to figure out the speed tiers. This will allow you to know whether you can Taunt the opponent to prevent Geomancy or Tailwind.
- The Focus Sash can be switched to a Psychic Seed for immediate bulk, allowing Tapu Lele to live a Kyogre Water Spout and take less damage from Knock Off.
- Tapu Lele can be given a Choice Scarf, in which case the last two moves should be Dazzling Gleam and a tech of your choice (Nature’s Madness, Taunt, Gravity, Magic Room and Focus Blast are all viable).
Outspeeds Kyogre, Groudon and max speed Modest Xerneas.

Offensive:
252 SpA Tapu Lele Psyshock vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Kyogre in Psychic Terrain: 114-135 (55 - 65.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Volt Switch / Nature’s Madness / Electroweb / Sky Drop
In stock: 1
Tapu Koko can be used with a number of different sets and items in the Moon series, the choice will often depend on the rest of the team.
- Electrium Z is another good item choice, but will require changing the EVs to max SpAtk and Spe. In that case, both Thunderbolt and Volt Switch should be on the set as well as Protect, and the last move depends on what the team needs, but Grass Knot is a popular option to deal with Groudon.
- Dazzling Gleam could be added, but more SpAtk investment might then be needed to make it worth (having Xerneas as a partner for the Fairy Aura also helps get decent damage out of it).
- When used on a rain team, Thunder could be added for a more damaging move.
- The Assault Vest can be swapped to a Focus Sash, in which case removing defensive investment is recommended. This allows adding Taunt to the moveset as well to prevent Trick Room or Xerneas from setting up.
- A Choice Scarf is also a popular option in order to outspeed and OHKO Scarf Kyogre with Thunder.
Outspeeds max speed Salazzle.

Defensive:
252 SpA Lunala Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom vs. 188 HP / 108 SpD Assault Vest Tapu Koko: 132-156 (78.1 - 92.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Nature's Madness / Icy Wind / Light Screen / Heal Pulse
In stock: 1
- Haze is a good way of checking Xerneas, and could replace Light Screen or Heal Pulse.
- Swagger can be very useful, especially when paired with Groudon for a pseudo-Swords Dance.
- Moonblast can come in handy as reliable damage, especially for foes that are already under 50% HP; you may want to consider it over Nature's Madness.
Outspeeds no speed Kyogre and Groudon, as well as max speed Yveltal and Xerneas after Icy Wind.

EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpDef / 252 Spe
Fake Out / Follow Me / Lovely Kiss / Spiky Shield
In stock: 5
- Wide Guard is very useful to help protecting Smeargle's partner, since spread moves are a way getting around Follow Me. Spiky Shield could be removed for it.
- Lovely Kiss is used over Spore to be able to put Grass-types to sleep as well. If the accuracy troubles you, Spore can also be used.
- Crafty Shield is another good option for the last slot, blocking any non-damaging moves (including Taunt and Roar).



Jolly | Beast Boost | Focus Sash

IVs: 31/31/31/28/31/31
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpDef / 252 Spe
Leaf Blade / Smart Strike / Sacred Sword / Detect
In stock: 5
- Kartana can be a great Tailwind setter, in which case Smart Strike should be dropped for it.
- Assault Vest Kartana is still an excellent set; if you wish to use it, change the EV spread to minimal Atk, and invest heavily in SpDef (living a +2 Xerneas Moonblast is mandatory). Knock Off should then replace Detect.



Sassy | Regenerator | Payapa Berry

Rage Powder / Spore / Grass Knot / Clear Smog
Egg moves*: Stun Spore, Gastro Acid, Defense Curl, Rollout
In stock: 3
- Protect can be valuable, as some opponents might aggressively target Amoonguss. In this case, Grass Knot should be dropped for it.
- Amoonguss is a formidable 50% Berry user for more longevity.
- A Red Card can be used to check Xerneas even more reliably, though it will require careful play in order not to waste the Red Card on other Pokémon.
Outspeeds max speed Ludicolo with no weather.

Defensive:
252+ Atk Groudon Fire Punch vs. 252 HP / 92 Def Amoonguss in Sun: 184-218 (83.2 - 98.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Power Whip / High Jump Kick / Feint / Helping Hand
Egg moves*: Play Rough, Synthesis, Acupressure
In stock: 5
- Fightinium Z is a good option, allowing for a no-drawback fighting move, though more Attack investment may be needed to one-hit KO Incineroar after Intimidate.
- Helping Hand can be replaced with Protect to allow better defensive play.
- Using an Assault Vest can make sense, in which case Knock Off is a good option over Helping Hand.
- To avoid accuracy issues and for additional utility, Trop Kick can be used instead of Power Whip.
Defensive:
252+ Atk Groudon Fire Punch vs. 252 HP / 68 Def Tsareena in Sun: 148-176 (82.6 - 98.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Sludge Bomb / Grass Knot / Sleep Powder / Protect
Egg moves*: Giga Drain, Leaf Storm, Grass Whistle, Grassy Terrain
In stock: 3
- A Life Orb boosts Venusaur’s damage output, but requires it to be played more carefully.
- Grassium Z or Poisonium Z are both good Z-move options; they may not be as powerful as using your Z crystal on a restricted legendary, but it will be one powerful hit very likely to go first in sun.
- Hidden Power Fire can be used over Sleep Powder to deal with Kartana and Ferrothorn (particularly in the sun!).
- If your team features Gravity, Grass Whistle is a good option as it can also put Grass-types to sleep, reaching 90% accuracy under Gravity.
Outspeeds max speed Ludicolo with no weather.

Defensive:
+2 252 SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Dazzling Gleam vs. 60 HP / 4 SpD Venusaur: 67-80 (41.1 - 49%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

Egg moves*: Giga Drain, Leech Seed, Counter, Synthesis
In stock: 6
If your team already has another Z-move user, Ludicolo can keep the Life Orb, or run an Assault Vest instead, in which case Ice Beam of Icy Wind can replace Protect. On Assault Vest variants, replacing Hydro Pump with Scald could also be desirable for accuracy.

Leaf Blade / Superpower / Knock Off / Protect
Egg moves*: Leaf Storm, Defog, Aromatherapy, Weather Ball
In stock: 4
- An Assault Vest could be used for more immediate bulk, in which case Poison Jab is a good choice for the last slot; keep in mind that due to how threatening it can be to the opponent because of Contrary, Lurantis is likely to be targeted early, so Protect is a useful move to have.
Hits an Atk jump point.

EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpDef / 252 Spe
Tailwind / Taunt / Encore / Endeavor
Egg moves*: Fake Tears, Memento, Beat Up
In stock: 4
- Moving the HP investment to SpAtk and teaching Whimsicott Grass Knot over Endeavor can threaten Kyogre and Groudon more consistently, but otherwise, the Endeavor option threatens everything.
- Protect can be added over one of the last two moves for a better chance at board positioning.
- Teams that don't like rain can use Prankster Sunny Day to turn things around!



Timid | Prankster | Flyinium Z

IVs: 31/20/31/31/31/31
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpAtk / 252 Spe
Tailwind / Hurricane / Taunt / Protect
In stock: 3
- A Focus Sash is a great item if you would rather use the Z crystal on a different Pokémon.
- Rain Dance could be valuable for better weather control, though both Taunt and Protect are very useful, so it's up to you as to which one you feel comfortable removing.



Adamant | Dry Skin | Assault Vest

IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31
EVs: 140 HP / 108 Atk / 4 Def / 252 SpDef / 4 Spe
Fake Out / Poison Jab / Low Kick / Low Sweep
Egg moves*: Drain Punch, Bullet Punch, Feint
In stock: 3
- If speed control isn't as crucial for your team, Low Sweep can be replaced by Feint to catch opponents trying to Protect off-guard.
- Drain Punch is a good option over Low Kick, offering some recovery as well as hitting Kartana for more damage; it however has lower base power against most restricted legendaries, and notably doesn't one-hit KO Stakataka.
- Using a Focus Sash unlocks a few more move options for Toxicroak, notably Taunt and Protect.
- Gunk Shot can be used over Poison Jab for a lot more damage, at the cost of a shaky accuracy.
Hits an Atk jump point.

Tailwind / Super Fang / Taunt / Haze
Egg moves*: Whirlwind, Hypnosis, Defog, Brave Bird
In stock: 6
- Taunt or Haze can be replaced by Whirlwind, which can both prevent Trick Room and stop setup, but becomes less reliable in the late game.
- Hypnosis is a high-risk, high-reward option.
- Quick Guard is also a good option to prevent Fake Out from being a problem for Crobat’s partner; several teams currently rely on two or three Fake Out users, so the move is as useful as ever!
- Safety Goggles are useful to prevent Spore and redirection, or a Lum Berry to prevent sleep from any move.
Timid with 0 Atk IVs ensures Foul Play is never a 2HKO.

IVs: 31/31/15/31/31/0
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpDef
Gyro Ball / Rock Slide / Trick Room / Protect
In stock: 1
Note: Lonely with 15 IVs in Defense is necessary to allow Stakataka to get the Beast Boost in Attack; do not hyper train it!
- Wide Guard is very helpful against Groudon and Kyogre, both of which usually have spread moves to hit Stakataka, but Protect can also be preferred for more reliable protection from other moves.
- Because of the Lonely nature, Stakataka cannot safely take a Sacred Sword from Kartana, so a Chople Berry is a great option to be able to set Trick Room in front of it.

Earthquake / Rock Tomb / U-turn / Protect
In stock: 4
- Rock Slide can replace Rock Tomb if speed control isn’t as crucial for your team.
- Safety Goggles is another good item choice, providing a switch-in for Spore or Sleep Powder.
- A Choice Scarf is a good option as well, since it will outspeed Modest Scarf Kyogre to weaken it before it potentially Water Spouts. In that case, Protect can be replaced by either Superpower (for Stakataka) or Knock Off (for utility, and Lunala). On Scarf variants, Rock Slide tends to make more sense than Rock Tomb.

Tailwind / Brave Bird / Flare Blitz / Taunt
Egg moves*: Quick Guard, Snatch
In stock: 4
- Quick Guard is an excellent option over Taunt if your team doesn’t have a way of preventing Fake Out (Psychic Terrain or Tsareena), as Talonflame doesn’t want to lose its Gale Wings to a Fake Out.
- Protect is never a bad option and also helps against Fake Out.

Fake Out / Overheat / Sludge Bomb / Taunt
Egg moves*: Knock Off, Snatch, Belch
In stock: 1
- Encore can be used instead of Taunt to punish opponents that use Protect on Salazzle’s Fake Out.
- You may want to consider a Life Orb for a little more power, especially if you don't mind Salazzle going down quickly. However, you may want to add Protect to the set, otherwise Salazzle can go down much too quickly without the Sash.
- While slightly gimmicky, adding Fling as the last move and giving Salazzle a King’s Rock gives you the option of a second, pseudo-Fake Out that the opponent probably won’t see coming!

Tailwind / Shadow Ball / Icy Wind / Haze
Egg moves*: Disable, Destiny Bond
In stock: 4
- Icy Wind’s slot is flexible; Will-O-Wisp, Disable and Destiny Bond can all have good use.
- Knock Off could also be used simply for its utility; getting rid of Xerneas' Power Herb, or any 50% Berry is extremely useful.
- Drifblim can also provide weather control with both Rain Dance and Sunny Day; if your team relies on weather, this is a good option.
Outspeeds Choice Scarf Tapu Koko after Unburden.

Defensive:
+2 252 SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Moonblast vs. +1 4 HP / 140 SpD Drifblim: 189-223 (83.6 - 98.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ SpA Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. +1 4 HP / 140 SpD Drifblim in Rain: 153-181 (67.6 - 80%) -- guaranteed 2HKO



Timid | Cursed Body | Ghostium Z
(substituted to Focus Sash
)
IVs: 31/0/31/31/31/31
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpAtk / 252 Spe
Shadow Ball / Sludge Bomb / Destiny Bond / Protect
Egg moves*: Perish Song, Disable, Clear Smog, Reflect Type
In stock: 2
The Z crystal allows Gengar to one-hit KO Lunala through Shadow Shield, but also gives the option of redirecting moves for a turn thanks to Z-Destiny Bond!
- The third moveslot could be replaced by Taunt or Icy Wind depends on the team’s needs.



Adamant | Wonder Guard | Focus Sash

IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpDef / 252 Spe
Shadow Claw / Shadow Sneak / Ally Switch / Protect
Egg moves*: Night Slash, Final Gambit, Bug Bite, Endure
In stock: 5
- Bug Bite provided good utility by getting rid of the opponent’s berries; if you would like to use it, replace Shadow Claw.
- Will-O-Wisp can also be used over Shadow Claw for some additional utility.



Timid | Lightning Rod | Assault Vest

IVs: 31/0/30/31/31/31 [HP Ice] (Hyper trained to 31/0/31/31/31/31)
EVs: 220 HP / 36 SpDef / 252 Spe
Fake Out / Volt Switch / Nuzzle / Feint
Egg moves*: Encore, Electric Terrain, Wish
In stock: 4
- For speed control, Electroweb is an alternative to Nuzzle; its effect doesn’t last after a switch, but it does lower the speed of both opponents.
- Feint could also be replaced by Knock Off for some utility, especially useful for Xerneas’ Power Herb and 50% berries.
- A Focus Sash is another good item option, allowing Raichu to use Encore and Helping Hand. In that case, no use investing in HP, move those EVs to SpAtk!
Defensive:
252 SpA Lunala Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom vs. 220 HP / 28 SpD Assault Vest Raichu: 136-162 (83.4 - 99.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252+ SpA Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. 220 HP / 28 SpD Assault Vest Raichu in Rain: 135-159 (82.8 - 97.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO



Sassy | Friend Guard | Eviolite

IVs: 31/26/31/31/31/0
EVs: 236 HP / 76 Def / 196 SpDef
Follow Me / Helping Hand / Heal Pulse / Protect
Egg moves*: Wish, Aromatherapy, Stored Power
In stock: 6
- Heal Pulse could be replaced by After You, which becomes a big asset in Trick Room, since Clefairy will outspeed most Pokémon in that setting.
- Encore is a nice option to prevent the opponent from setting up.
- Clefairy has access to Icy Wind to provide the team with speed control.
Hits a SpDef jump point.

Defensive:
+2 252 SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Moonblast vs. 236 HP / 196+ SpD Eviolite Clefairy: 144-171 (82.2 - 97.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO



Sassy | Heatproof | Safety Goggles

IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/0
EVs: 244 HP / 60 Def / 204 SpDef
Trick Room / Gyro Ball / Gravity / Hypnosis
In stock: 6
- The item can be replaced by a Lum Berry (to protect from Lovely Kiss and Hypnosis) or a Mental Herb.
- Levitate is a useful ability, and it’s only an Ability Capsule away! However, with Bronzong being a Gravity setter, Levitate loses its purpose, and opponents that don’t know the ability will be reluctant to target Bronzong with a Ground move since they could be wasting a turn.
Defensive:
+2 252 SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Moonblast vs. 244 HP / 204+ SpD Bronzong: 72-86 (41.6 - 49.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252+ Atk Groudon Fire Punch vs. 244 HP / 60 Def Heatproof Bronzong in Sun: 68-80 (39.3 - 46.2%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
4 Atk Incineroar Knock Off vs. 244 HP / 60 Def Bronzong: 72-86 (41.6 - 49.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
4 Atk Incineroar Flare Blitz vs. 244 HP / 60 Def Heatproof Bronzong: 66-78 (38.1 - 45%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
196 Atk Black Glasses Dark Aura Yveltal Knock Off vs. 244 HP / 60 Def Bronzong: 144-170 (83.2 - 98.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO



Modest | Flash Fire | Safety Goggles

IVs: 31/2/18/31/31/31 [HP Ice] (Hyper trained to 31/2/31/31/31/31)
EVs: 28 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpAtk / 4 SpDef / 220 Spe
Heat Wave / Earth Power / Roar / Protect
In stock: 3
- A Shuca Berry or an Air Balloon allow Heatran to take on Groudon more easily.
- A Red Card can make Heatran an even more reliable Xerneas counter.
Outspeeds max speed Adamant Tsareena.

Offensive:
252+ SpA Heatran Heat Wave vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Groudon in Sun: 109-130 (52.6 - 62.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO



Modest | Pressure | Safety Goggles

IVs: 31/2/31/31/31/31
EVs: 4 HP / 4 Def / 204 SpAtk / 44 SpDef / 252 Spe
Tailwind / Hurricane / Burn Up / Roar
In stock: 5
- Burn Up could be replaced by Heat Wave if you don’t like having only one opportunity to use a Fire-type move, but the possibility of using the move defensively to lose the Fire typing can be very handy.
- Roar could very well be replaced by Protect if your team has other means of dealing with Xerneas.
- The Safety Goggles help a lot in roaring safely, but if you opt to have Protect, a Focus Sash or a Life Orb are good item options.
Defensive:
252+ SpA Kyogre Origin Pulse vs. 4 HP / 44 SpD Moltres in Rain: 138-163 (83.1 - 98.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO (after Burn Up)
252+ SpA Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. 4 HP / 44 SpD Moltres in Sun: 126-150 (75.9 - 90.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
+2 252+ SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Moonblast vs. 4 HP / 44 SpD Moltres: 128-151 (77.1 - 90.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO



Careful | Intimidate | Eject Button

IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31
EVs: 252 HP / 164 Atk / 12 Def / 76 SpDef / 4 Spe
Fake Out / Close Combat / Wide Guard / Feint
In stock: 5
- Wide Guard and Feint could both be dropped in favor of Helping Hand.
- If the free switch from the Eject Button doesn’t benefit your team, Hitmontop can make good use of a 50% Berry.
Hits a SpDef jump point.

Careful | Intimidate | Assault Vest

IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 164 Def / 36 SpDef / 52 Spe
Fake Out / Knock Off / Low Kick / Snarl
Egg moves*: Drain Punch, Ice Punch, Quick Guard
In stock: 3
Note: EV spread by Victory Road.
- Snarl may be replaced by Foul Play to allow Scrafty to deal good damage even after getting Intimidated.
- Drain Punch could be used over Low Kick, but since this Scrafty is more defensive, the damage could be underwhelming.
- A 50% or Sitrus Berry instead of the Assault Vest allows the use of Protect, Roar or Taunt on the moveset, three potentially valuable moves.
Outspeeds standard Incineroar.

Defensive:
252+ SpA Kyogre Origin Pulse vs. 252 HP / 36+ SpD Assault Vest Scrafty in Rain: 67-81 (38.9 - 47%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252+ SpA Choice Specs Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. 252 HP / 36+ SpD Assault Vest Scrafty in Rain: 138-163 (80.2 - 94.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
252 SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Dazzling Gleam vs. 252 HP / 36+ SpD Assault Vest Scrafty: 136-168 (79 - 97.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
-1 252+ Atk Choice Band Groudon Precipice Blades vs. 252 HP / 164 Def Scrafty: 73-87 (42.4 - 50.5%) -- 1.2% chance to 2HKO
252 Atk Life Orb Solgaleo Superpower vs. 252 HP / 164 Def Scrafty: 143-169 (83.1 - 98.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO



Timid | Beast Boost | Focus Sash

IVs: 27/26/22/31/31/31 [HP Ice] (Hyper trained to 31/26/31/31/31/31)
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpAtk / 252 Spe
Power Gem / Sludge Bomb / Grass Knot / Protect
In stock: 6
- Clear Smog can be useful if Nihilego is used to check Xerneas in particular, though Grass Knot is very useful against Kyogre and Groudon.
- If Nihilego is your main Xerneas check, a Red Card might be a good idea, allowing Nihilego to phaze it without carrying Clear Smog (unless the opponent has no more Pokémon in the back!).



Timid | Overcoat | Kommonium Z
(substituted to Life Orb
)
IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31
EVs: 68 HP / 4 Def / 236 SpAtk / 4 SpDef / 196 Spe

Defensive:
252+ SpA Kyogre Water Spout (150 BP) vs. +1 68 HP / 4 SpD Kommo-o in Rain: 55-66 (34.5 - 41.5%) -- guaranteed 3HKO

Is there a limit to the amount of Pokémon I can request?

Nope! You are, however, limited to one copy of each Pokémon.

Can I use these Pokémon in official competitions / events?

Yes! Since all the original Pokémon I am giving away have been bred or soft-reset by me, there cannot be any legality issues with them.

Why is [insert Pokémon name] not here?

Breeding and training the current lineup has already taken an insane amount of time and effort - more will be added over time, but I don't take requests or suggestions, I keep up to date with the current meta to pick what I want to offer.

I'm sorry if your favourite got left behind - hopefully you still find something helpful among the ones I do offer!

I have a good [insert Pokémon name] to offer! Want to add it to the lineup?

No, sorry. It's really nice of you to want to contribute, but I prefer to only offer my own Pokémon. This way, I can guarantee the provenance of the Pokémon, and am the only one accountable for them. Since people might bring these Pokémon to official events, I am not willing to take any risk whatsoever.

My deposits keep getting sniped! Can we do a direct trade instead?

If you keep getting sniped trying to obtain one particular Pokémon, feel free to PM or VM me after a couple of attempts, and we'll try to synchronize ourselves (i.e. you deposit at a moment we're both here so I can grab it right away). Direct trades are very inconvenient for me, so I will only offer them as a last resort.

I want many of your listed Pokémon, can you just send them all to me in one direct trade?

Most people request several Pokémon, and it would be unfair if I sent many at once to one person while the others are depositing one at a time. Moreover, it would be way too time-consuming for me, and I could not be running this giveaway at all. So in short, the answer is no.

Can you nickname the Pokémon I request?

If I accepted custom nicknames, I expect that a lot of people would request them, and that would just be way too time-consuming for me (not to mention that most Pokémon were bred/caught on Ultra Sun while I'm distributing from Ultra Moon, so I would have to transfer them over to renickname...!). As a short answer, no, sorry.

You told me there isn't any stock left of my request, but when I requested, there still was some!

Sadly, if I have 2 copies of a Pokémon left, and 3 people request it almost simultaneously, only the first 2 to request it will receive it. If one of them gets sniped before I distribute, then the next one to have requested will get the 2nd copy instead. Sorry if this happened to you, I can't do much about it - wait a few days, and I will replenish the stock! :)

Am I allowed to use your flawless Pokémon as parents to breed Pokémon for my collection?

Sure! However, given the time I took to get the balls, egg moves and flawless IVs (I did it all from scratch), credit is appreciated.
