There were no peak winners for this challenge due to the lack of posts.

I will congratulate smub for doing an excellent job winning the W/L ratio for Ground.
I will also congratulate MetaRiolu7 for winning the W/L ratio for Dragon.

I will also shout out our platinum ranks:

Monotype Core Laddering Challenge Season 2 Cycle 2
SM Challenge #8
2 Cores, September 24 - October 4

Flying

Tornadus-Therian + Thundurus-Therian
Tag : CCS2Fl2
Hall of Fame Rankings:

Platinum: 1600+
Gold: 1475+
Silver: 1350+
Bronze: 1250+
*New*
Tornadus Therian - Tornadus Therian can be a solid offensive pivot, a decent special bulky attacker, and even a physical sweeper! With access to moves like Defog, Hurricane, Knock off, Acrobatics, Heat Wave and U-turn, the role that Tornadus Therian can fulfill is purely based on the composition of the team.
Thundurus Therian - Thundurus Therian is a somewhat niche sweeper with the useful ability in Volt absorb, allowing it to not be pressured by Electric-type moves. It also has quite an expansive movepool that allows it to be either a Double-dance attacker, or a Choice Scarf revenge killer.



Steel


Lucario + Klefki
Tag: CCS2St2
Hall of Fame Rankings:

Platinum: 1600+
Gold: 1475+
Silver: 1350+
Bronze: 1250+
*New*
Lucario - Steel is usually known for its fatter builds, but Lucario is here to show that more offensive builds can also work in this metagame. With access to Swords Dance, Meteor Mash, Close Combat, Ice Punch, and Zen Headbutt, this wallbreaker can break through a lot of commonly used walls like Mega-Venusaur, Celesteela, Toxapex, and Mandibuzz. Extreme Speed also allows it to potentially clean weakened teams after a Swords Dance, which with proper team support Lucario can do easily.
Klefki - Klefki is well known for being used on Fairy, but it can also be used on Steel as well to function the same way it does on Fairy. It allows its offensive core to take less damage from opposing Pokemon and can even set Spikes to help vs balance teams like water that switch out frequently.

Monotype Core Laddering Challenge Season 2 Cycle 2
2 Cores, October 1 - October 11

Fire

Charizard-Y + Marowak-Alola
Tag : CCS2Fi2
Hall of Fame Rankings:

Platinum: 1550+
Gold: 1425+
Silver: 1300+
Bronze: 1200+
Charizard-Y - Charizard-Y may have fallen out of favor for its superior counterpart in Charizard-X, but that doesn't change the fact that it is a powerful special wallbreaker with Sun-boosted Fire Blast and access to Solar Beam and Focus Blast as coverage. It also has access to Defog and Tailwind to support its teammates as well as Hidden Power Electric to beat out flying types like Mantine.
Marowak-Alola - Alolan Marowak is a niche physical wallbreaker with access to Stealth Rocks and the ability to threaten most Psychic-types. With Sun support and its great attack stat paired with Thick Club, Marowak can be a dangerous threat to the opposing team if not handled properly. It also pairs very will with Charizard-Y as it can take electric type attacks from mons like Tapu Koko and check them back.



Fighting

Buzzwole + Lucario
Tag: CCS2Fg2
Hall of Fame Rankings:

Platinum: 1550+
Gold: 1425+
Silver: 1300+
Bronze: 1200+
Buzzwole - Buzzwole may seem like an inferior version of Heracross at first glance, but in practice it can potentially be even more dangerous than Heracross could ever be. It's physical bulk allows it to naturally, without any defense or health investment, check Azumarill after a Belly Drum as well as other physical attackers that threaten fighting like Tapu Bulu, Mega-Gallade, and Landorus-T. It's movepool is also useful because it can be used to check a variety of mons based on what you use.
Lucario - If you liked using Lucario for Steel, you might find yourself liking it here too. Lucario works essentially the same between both types in the fact that it can wallbreak and lategame sweep with its decent attack stat paired with Swords Dance and Life Orb. The only difference here is that Lucario is also essential to beating out Mega-Diancie with Bullet Punch and can check other Fairy-types after a Swords Dance.
