Probably a meme, but dragon tail light screen. Speed Evs probably could be changed because I stole the ddance evs and removed the attack investment.

Kyurem @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Pressure
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 56 HP / 24 Def / 252 SpD / 176 Spe
Careful Nature
- Roost
- Substitute
- Light Screen
- Dragon Tail

Light screen helps pp stall moonblast from fairies, so then dragon tail can be spammed forever 16 times

Congratulations Solaros & Lunaris for winning this cycle!

Now, from menace to menace...
:ss/kartana:

Frailer than Mercedes' protests against FIA after Yas Marina GP, Kartana is a great addition to a lot of team archetypes. It stands a superb Attack stat, a great Speed tier and has been blessed by one of the best abilities, Beast Boost. Our beloved community has developed four different sets. Will you come up with a new one able to shine among the others? Good luck everyone!

Deadline: Sunday 19th

:ss/kartana:

Kartana @ Adrenaline Orb
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Swords Dance
- Leaf Blade
- Sacred Sword
- Knock Off

The most broken set known to mankind, abuses the fuck out of teams that use defensive lando as their kart pivot and proceed to 6-0 them in reverse. Also teams using stuff like EPower / HP Fire Scarf Lando T to RK Kart get suprised killed and swept. Broken set trust me.

Kartana @ Flyinium Z
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature / Adamant Nature
- Tailwind
- Leaf Blade
- Knock Off
- Sacred Sword

Z-Tailwind will give you the tailwind speed boost for 4 turns, and a massively increased crit ratio that makes leaf blade a guaranteed crit and on other moves gives you a good chance to make your opponent commit a bannable offense in chat. Jolly nature makes Kartana good outside of the 4 turns of tailwind, but adamant crit leaf blade after a beast boost with a +2 speed mon is absurd.

I meannnnnnnn the deadline said the 19th but theres only 1 set posted so I might as well :))
:SM/Kartana:
Kartana @ Life Orb
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 19 Atk
- Leaf Blade
- Knock Off
- Sacred Sword
- Swords Dance

Timid kartana with the speed boosts let you sweep teams that rely on killing kartana by outspeeding it, I love timid kart because while regular kart will almost always put in work, this set can sweep out of nowhere even harder than regular kart sets.

Congrats Nish the Great for winning the Kartana cycle! Keep it up!

Now, from the Crown Tundra DLC...

:ss/slowking-galar:
Slowking-Galar is a great special pivot that can switch into a lot of special threats like Tapu Koko and Greninja when paired with a Dark resist. Moreover, it has a great movepool with which can cover a lot of threats depending on what the team needs. What's the best set you contestants will come up with? Good luck everyone!

Slowking-Galar @ Shuca Berry
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 248 HP / 236 Def / 24 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Flamethrower
- Sludge Bomb
- Ice Beam
- Calm Mind

CM 3a is a potent breaker, although it cant get past Pex u usually pair with smtg like tomb mzor, u can run slack as well, shuca lets u bop glisc / chomp / lando that u lure in, but u can run colbur / sludge / z as well if u like.

The poor Slowking-Galar had little attention so we are moving on with another DLC addition!


:ss/urshifu-rapid-strike:
Urshifu is a strong Water-type that can form VolTurn cores with partners such as Tapu Koko and Landorus-Therian. Its Choice Band sets allows it to break past some of the sturdiest walls in the tier aswell. However, this is Next Best Thing and we don't like standard sets. What set will you come up with this time? Good luck everyone!

Deadline: Monday 31st

- Thunder Punch
- Bulk Up

FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX FUCK PEX

Ok... but tbh this is a lure for slowbro and pex 2 of its biggest counters which allows it for its teammates to break through teams that have pex or bro to stone wall them such as charizard-x, mega lop, mega scizor, victini, and more

+1 252 Atk Urshifu-Rapid-Strike Gigavolt Havoc (140 BP) vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Toxapex: 244-288 (80.2 - 94.7%) -- 50% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock
+1 252 Atk Urshifu-Rapid-Strike Gigavolt Havoc (140 BP) vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Slowbro: 308-364 (78.1 - 92.3%) -- 31.3% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock
