[SET COMMENTS]
Galarian Moltres is a decent wallbreaker and sweeper on offensive teams, sporting a great offensive STAB move combination and a passable speed tier, which sets it apart from breakers such as Hydreigon and Tapu Lele. Furthermore, it also sports a solid defensive typing, as well as really good overall bulk, which allows it to pivot into Pokemon like Kartana, Greninja, and Landorus-T and live super effective and strong attacks like Tapu Koko's Thunderbolt, Mega Lopunny's Close Combat, and Choice Scarf Tapu Lele's Moonblast. However, Galarian Moltres has faults which limit its capabilities to be consistent throughout a match, such as its Stealth Rock weakness, being relatively weak without a boost, and its mediocre Speed stat before an Agility boost that leaves it outsped by the likes of Kartana, Tapu Lele, and Mega Lopunny. Its lack of recovery also means that it is easily worn down and can't always take advantage of its bulk. Taunt allows it to use would-be checks like Toxapex and Blissey as setup fodder and break past Unaware Clefable to ease the stall matchup. However, Agility can be used instead, as it allows Galarian Moltres to demolish most offensive team structures. Fiery Wrath provides Galarian Moltres with a consistent STAB option, hitting common Flying-type resistant Pokemon like Corviknight, Heatran, and Zapdos. Hurricane lets Galarian Moltres hit Dark-type resistant Pokemon like Tapu Fini and Hydreigon and becomes a nuclear option when used in tandem with Flyinium Z that can even break the likes of Tapu Koko and Mega Diancie.

Galarian Moltres fits best on offensive teams where its unique wallbreaking capabilities fit right in. Steel-types are mandatory partners for Galarian Moltres due to its inability to consistently deal with Fairy-types such as Unaware Clefable, Tapu Koko, Mega Diancie, and Mega Mawile. Thus, bulky Steel-types like Melmetal, Ferrothorn, and Mega Scizor are all incredible teammate choices. Due to its susceptibility to Stealth Rock, Galarian Moltres greatly appreciates solid entry hazard control from Pokemon such as Tapu Fini and Landorus-T. Galarian Moltres is easily revenge killed if unboosted or by priority if it has used Agility, so faster partners such as Mega Lopunny, Tapu Koko, and Choice Scarf Tapu Lele work well with it. The aforementioned Pokemon also appreciate Galarian Moltres breaking bulkier teams for them. Ground-types such as Landorus-T and Garchomp are stellar teammates, as they can absorb the Electric-types attacks from Pokemon like Tapu Koko and Zapdos that Galarian Moltres brings in. Lastly, due to Galarian Moltres's lack of consistent recovery and weakness to Stealth Rock, pivots like Corviknight, Landorus-T, and Rotom-W are excellent partners that can help bring it in safely.

=============

A Weakness Policy can be used in place of Flyinium Z to trade off the one-time nuking power of Supersonic Skystrike for potentially much harder overall hits, but this set is extremely inconsistent due to it requiring Galarian Moltres to get hit by a super effective move, and because of this mandates Dual Screens support. Rest, in conjunction with a Chesto Berry, gives Galarian Moltres much needed longevity and lets it slowly stack Berserk boosts, making it extremely hard to deal with in the long term. However, by running Rest, it loses the one-time nuke option that Flyinium Z provides, as well as losing one of Taunt, Agility, or a STAB move, which renders it unable to break past Toxapex and Blissey. Lastly, a Sitrus Berry can be run to provide Galarian Moltres with a quick burst of recovery which can allow it to live priority moves such as Weavile's Ice Shard, Mega Lopunny's Fake Out, and Greninja's Water Shuriken, as well as potentially let it accrue an extra Berserk boost.

Checks and Counters
===================

**Fairy-types**: The likes of Clefable and Tapu Fini easily pivot into Galarian Moltres's Fiery Wrath and force it out with their Fairy-type STAB. However, they all hate switching into Hurricane and Supersonic Skystrike. Tapu Koko, Mega Mawile, and Mega Diancie resist both of Galarian Moltres's STAB attacks and threaten it out.

**Electric-types and Electric-type Coverage**: Zapdos, Rotom-Wash, and Magnezone resist Galarian Moltres's Flying-type STAB move, with the former two being able to recover off the damage dealt. However, all three dislike boosted Fiery Wraths and can be easily beat if chipped, especially since the latter two lack of consistent recovery. Furthermore, Electric-type coverage options from the likes of Mega Latias, Mega Latios, and Victini can chunk Galarian Moltres.

**Rock-types and Rock-type Coverage**: Tyranitar and Diancie resist both of Galarian Moltres's STAB options and can easily switch into it and threaten it out, with the former being able to Pursuit trap it. Rock-type coverage from the likes of Landorus-T and Garchomp also greatly hurt Moltres.

**Revenge Killers**: Due to its reliance on Agility and weakness to Stealth Rock, faster Pokemon such as Tapu Lele, Mega Lopunny, and Tapu Koko can easily revenge kill Galarian Moltres if it hasn't used Agility. Furthermore, priority from the likes of Mega Medicham, Weavile, and Mega Lopunny can revenge kill Galarian Moltres if it has been heavily chipped.

Galarian Moltres is an incredible decent wall breaker on offensive teams, sporting a great offensive STAB combination and a decent passable speed tier, flip these 2 around rn it reads like that it's gmolts speed which sets it apart which sets it apart from breakers such as Hydreigon and Hoopa-U. Furthermore, it also sports a solid defensive typing as well as really good overall bulk, which lets it live incredible hits like Tapu Koko's Thunderbolt, Mega Lopunny's Close Combat and Choice Scarf Tapu Lele's Moonblast. However, Galarian Moltres has faults which limit its capabilities to be consistent throughout, such as its Stealth Rock weakness, it being relatively weak when unboosted or without a Z-Move, as well as its mediocre Speed stat. mention somewhere that no roost means it can't use its bulk as much it wants to and can be easily worn down Taunt is a big selling point for this Pokemon as a wallbreaker, as it allows it to use would-be checks like Toxapex and Blissey as setup fodder, as well as break past bulkier teams with ease. Fiery Wrath provides Galarian Moltres with a consistent STAB option, nailing common Flying-type resistant Pokemon like Corviknight, Heatran, and Zapdos. Hurricane alongside Flyinium Z provides Galarian Moltres with a nuclear option that breaks even checks like Tapu Koko and Clefable, and on its own lets Galarian Moltres break Dark-type resistant Pokemon like Tapu Fini and Hydreigon.

Galarian Moltres fits best on offense teams where its unique wallbreaking capabilities fit right in. Steel-types are primary partners with Galarian Moltres, due to its inability to consistently to deal with Fairy-types such as Unware Clefable, Tapu Koko, Mega Diancie, and Mega Mawile. Thus, the likes of Melmetal, Ferrothorn, and Mega Scizor are all incredible partners with it. Due to its susceptibility to Stealth Rock, Galarian Moltres greatly appreciates solid hazard control from Pokemon such as Kartana, Tapu Fini, and Landorus-T. Galarian Moltres is often revenge killed easily due to its low Speed stat, so much faster Pokemon like Mega Lopunny, Tapu Koko, and Choice Scarf Tapu Lele are all great partners with it, as they also appreciate Galarian Moltres breaking down bulkier teams for them. Mention that these mons can help with offense Ground-types such as Landorus-T and Garchomp are stellar teammates as they can absorb the Electric-types attacks that Galarian Moltres brings in. Lastly, due to Galarian Moltres's lack of consistent recovery and proneness to Stealth Rock, pivots like Corviknight, Landorus-T, and Rotom-W are excellent partners to help bring it in safely.

=============

A set utilising both Agility and Nasty Plot can be used to remedy Galarian Moltres's middling Speed tier and allow it to shred faster teams if it can get both boosts; However, it can rarely ever pull getting both boosts off, especially due to its Stealth Rock Weakness and its lack of recovery. A Weakness Policy can be used in place of Flyinium Z to trade off the one time nuking power for potentially much harder overall hits, but this set is extremely inconsistent due to it requiring Galarian Moltres to get hit by a Super Effective move, and because of this basically mandates Dual Screens support. Rest in conjunction with a Chesto Berry or Sleep Talk give Galarian Moltres much needed extra longevity, as well as make it able to slowly stack Berserk boosts, making it extremely hard to deal with in the long term. However, by running Rest and / or Sleep Talk, it loses the one time nuke option of Flyinium Z, as well as losing Taunt and a coverage move, which renders it unable to break past the likes of Toxapex and Blissey.

Checks and Counters
===================

**Fairy-types**: The likes of Clefable, Tapu Fini, and Tapu Bulu bulu just dies to hurricane easily pivot into Galarian Moltres's Fiery Wrath and force it out with their Fairy-type STAB. However, they all hate switching into Hurricane or a Supersonic Skystrike. Tapu Koko, Mega Mawile, and Mega Diancie resist both of Galarian Moltres's STAB attacks, but can easily get worn down due to their lack of recovery. Realistically gmolt is probably getting worn down before these are especially as maw can end games fast and dia sets near irremovable rocks and koko has roost

**Electric-types and Electric-type Coverage**: Zapdos, Rotom-Wash, and Magnezone resist Galarian Moltres's Flying-type STAB move, with the former two being able to recover off the damage dealt. However, all three dislike boosted Fiery Wraths and can be easily beat if chipped, especially with the latter twos lack of consistent recovery. Furthermore, coverage options from the likes of Mega Latias, Mega Latios, and Victini can easily threaten out Galarian Moltres.

**Rock-types and Rock-type Coverage**: Both Tyranitar and Diancie resist both of Galarian Moltres's STAB options and can easily switch into it and threaten it out, with the former being able to Pursuit trap it. However, due to the boths lack of recovery, they are prone to being worn down. Again gmolt is getting worn down faster than these Rock-type coverage from the likes of Landorus-T and Garchomp also threaten it out with ease.

Galarian Moltres is an decent wall breaker and sweeper on offensive teams, sporting a great offensive STAB combination and a passable speed tier, which sets it apart from breakers such as Hydreigon and Hoopa-U. Mention some other breakers here, other than typing and Hydreigon being a special attacker, these Pokemon share nothing in common with Moltres, they dont even fit on the same teams. Furthermore, it also sports a solid defensive typing as well as really good overall bulk, which lets it live hits like Tapu Koko's Thunderbolt, Mega Lopunny's Close Combat and Choice Scarf Tapu Lele's Moonblast. I think mentioning some nonsupereffective hits could be as well. However, Galarian Moltres has faults which limit its capabilities to be consistent throughout, such as its Stealth Rock weakness, it being relatively weak when unboosted or without a Z-Move, as far as im concerned, z moves are basically a boost as well as its mediocre Speed stat. specify that its speedstat is only mediocre when unboosted, it might also be worth it to mention some pokemon that outspeed moltres when its unboosted, like Kartana, MMedi, Mlop, Scarf Lele, etc. Its lack of recovery also means that it is easily worn down and cant abuse take advantage of its bulk as much. Taunt allows it to use would-be checks like Toxapex and Blissey as setup fodder, as well as break past bulkier teams with ease. i think mentioning how it can muscle through una clef is rlly good for the stall mu However, Agility allows it to trade the ability to demolish bulkier teams and instead potentially sweep faster ones after a boost can be used as it allows Moltres to demolish most offensive team structures. Fiery Wrath provides Galarian Moltres with a consistent STAB option, nailing hitting please stop using the word nailing so much common Flying-type resistant Pokemon like Corviknight, Heatran, and Zapdos. Hurricane alongside Flyinium Z provides Galarian Moltres with a nuclear option that breaks even checks like Tapu Koko and Clefable, and on its own lets Galarian Moltres break Dark-type resistant Pokemon like Tapu Fini and Hydreigon. this sentence feels very messy, and IMO i think it should be structured like "Hurricane is Moltres-G most spammable move, letting it hit foes like x, y, and z. and in tandem with a Flyinium Z, its a nuclear option that can break even the likes of Tapu Fini, Hydreigon, and Clefable.

Galarian Moltres fits best on offense teams where its unique wallbreaking capabilities fit right in. Steel-types are primary partners with Galarian Moltres, due to its inability to consistently to deal with Fairy-types such as Unware Clefable, Tapu Koko, Mega Diancie and Mega Mawile. Thus, the likes of Melmetal, Ferrothorn, and Mega Scizor are all incredible partners with it. Due to its susceptibility to Stealth Rock, Galarian Moltres greatly appreciates solid hazard control from Pokemon such as KartanaExcadrill, Tapu Fini, and Landorus-T. Galarian Moltres is often revenge killed easily due to its low Speed stat, so much faster Pokemon like Mega Lopunny, Tapu Koko, and Choice Scarf Tapu Lele are all great partners with it, as they also appreciate Galarian Moltres breaking down bulkier teams for them, while they help with faster teams. Please rewrite this sentence, its really weird. make it clear that moltres only gets revenge killed by priority or when unboosted/taunt variants. Ground-types such as Landorus-T and Garchomp are stellar teammates as they can absorb the Electric-types attacks from? that Galarian Moltres brings in. Lastly, due to Galarian Moltres's lack of consistent recovery and proneness to Stealth Rock, pivots like Corviknight, Landorus-T, and Rotom-W are excellent partners to help bring it in safely.

Lastly, a Sitrus Berry can be run to provide it a quick burst of recovery, and potentially allow it to accrue and extra Berserk boost mention how the "burst of recovery" allows it to live priority moves like Weaviles ice shard, mlop fake out, agren water shuriken, etc..

Checks and Counters
===================

**Fairy-types**: The likes of Clefable, and Tapu Fini, and Tapu Bulu i think your bulu obsession is a bit out of hand, why would it ever switch into a flying type and, why did you mention fairy type stab? it literally doesnt get good fairy stab easily pivot into Galarian Moltres's Fiery Wrath and force it out with their Fairy-type STAB. However, they all hate switching into Hurricane or a Supersonic Skystrike. Tapu Koko, Mega Mawile, and Mega Diancie resist both of Galarian Moltres's STAB attacks, and threaten it back out.

**Electric-types and Electric-type Coverage**: Zapdos, Rotom-Wash, and Magnezone resist Galarian Moltres's Flying-type STAB move, with the former two being able to recover off the damage dealt. However, all three dislike boosted Fiery Wraths and can be easily beat if chipped, especially with the latter twos lack of consistent recovery. Furthermore, coverage options from the likes of Mega Latias, Mega Latios, and Victini can easily threaten out Galarian Moltres. i wouldn't use the wording "threaten out" here, its unexpected coming from 3 psychic types and moltres would probably stay in and try to set up

**Rock-types and Rock-type Coverage**: Both Tyranitar and Diancie resist both of Galarian Moltres's STAB options and can easily switch into it and threaten it out, with the former being able to Pursuit trap it. Rock-type coverage from the likes of Landorus-T and Garchomp greatly hurt Moltres also threaten it out with ease.

Mention revenge killers here

Its lack of recovery also means that it is easily worn down and can(add ‘)t take advantage of its bulk. Taunt allows it to use would-be checks like Toxapex and Blissey as setup fodder, as well as break breaking past Unaware Clefable eases to ease the Stall stall matchup.
