And my vote goes to SeedTect so congratulations GiyuForPresident for this cycle!
It's the funny day today and in Next Best Thing we couldn't be less!
Mr. Mime is a staple in the tier thanks to its superb typing allowing it to switch into titans like Latios and Kommo-o. Its wide movepool allows it to fulfill multiple roles like setup sweeper, screener, support... These are some traits that allowed it to be at the peak of the Viability Rankings. Submit your best set for this beast!
Luring kartana in and focus blast it to oblivion as it SD, even if it attacks the focus sash will allow mr.mime to destroy the origami. Nasty plot will give it a shot at wallbreaking if not outright sweeping.
+2 252 SpA Mr. Mime Psyshock vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Chansey: 288-340 (40.9 - 48.3%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
+2 252 SpA Mr. Mime Focus Blast vs. 96 HP / 0 SpD Mawile-Mega: 227-268 (85.6 - 101.1%) -- 50% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock these calcs are actually sad calcs
As a Katy Perry fan, today we will have the Hot and next cycle we will have the Cold...
Volcanion was a great discover for the tier when Ox the Fox added it to their famous Hail team. It Specs set hits pretty hard and those who can switch in it are crippled by Toxic. Today you will make use of its decent movepool and incredible stats to come up with new sets. Good luck everyone!
Volcanion @ Grassium Z
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
IVs: 0 Atk
- Solar Beam
- Steam Eruption
- Earth Power / Sludge Bomb
Volcanion is regularly walled by common bulky Water-types like Gastrodon, Slowking, Toxapex, and Tapu Fini. A common way to deal with these counters is using moves like Hidden Power Grass, Earth Power, and Sludge Bom/Wave. While Grassium Z is sub-optimal for Toxapex due to it being neutral and Earth Power existing, it greatly deals with the other 3. It also surpasses the capabilities of HP Grass, alowing it to secure OHKO's or force risky switches.

Volcanion forces a lot of switches due to its high power.
It can abuse that with sub to gernate momentum.
Sub also helps out against walls like pex, fini and clef.
If you run Leftovers, you will need o good Defogger.
Hdb appreciates wishpass.
Volcanion's middling speed means that it's usually used as setup fodder by ground types, since they scare it out with eq. However they are in for a nasty surprise when they click the eq. However unlike heatran, it can't use air balloon effectively due to it's weakness to rock, which will make the grounds just click stone edge instead and volc still dies. Burning the grounds will neutralise them, saving significant amounts of health for their counters such as landorus-t and tangrowth

252 Atk Garchomp Stone Edge vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Volcanion: 188-222 (62.2 - 73.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock
They won't recklessly use a z without a boost
252 SpA Volcanion Steam Eruption vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Garchomp: 205-243 (57.4 - 68%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
If you sack it burning it is a good thing since you save health on something like lando or tang
Mawile is an absolute beast in the tier hitting almost everything extremely hard. Moreover, it has access to both Swords Dance and Sucker Punch to make you cry like this poor little thing . It's time to find more and more interesting sets for it.
