A core is a pair or group of Pokemon which work well together. They can be great offensively - covering each other's' checks and counters, pressuring shared checks and counters, or supporting each other for a potential sweep - or defensively, covering each other's' weaknesses and forming a strong defensive backbone. The goal of this project is to provide the community with strong and innovative cores, hopefully finding some new cores in the process and inspire teambuilders.

At the start of each week I will post a requirement for the core - it could be a specific Pokemon to build around, a concept or theme (such as Dark-Spam, Trick Room etc), or a type core (such as Fire / Water / Grass). You have 5 days to post your cores. At the end of the 5 days a 2-day voting period will commence, where you can vote for two of your favourite cores from the round. At the end of the voting phase the winner and runner-up's names and cores will be posted in the Hall of Fame and the next week of building will start.

If you have an idea you'd like to see covered in the competition, please PM me. We're very open to suggestions!

Rules
1. Please post sprites (makes the thread easier to read!), sets, and a brief description of how the core works. See my post below for an example. You can very easily get sprites here.
2. Cores must be effective in the current meta.
3. Cores must be original, as part of the point of this thread is to discover new cores.
4. We reserve the right to reject unoriginal or unviable cores. If your core has been rejected you may resubmit a new core. Giving helpful feedback is fine but do not call for someone else's core to be rejected - if it breaks the rules we will handle it.
5. Don't vote for yourself.
6. Have fun!

While we do encourage creativity and innovation for submissions, we don't completely outlaw the submission of well known cores. If a core is so well known that no one can really lay claim to the creation of the core, it is fair game provided you have put your own twist on it. To paraphrase a few lines from ERASED, "you've got to put more of yourself into your work" and "the readers can't see your face in your work." If I look at a core that everyone uses, I want to be able to see what sets you apart from every other Tom, Dick and Harry who is using the same core. These can just be done as slashes if you want, but make sure it is there. Innovation doesn't always mean coming up with something 100% new.

EDIT: Because the comp is gonna be over witin the next 6-8 weeks+I'm the only remaining host, I'm going to be a little more lax on rule number 4 'cause subjectivity.

Week 1: A Match Made in Heaven
Building condition: Limit two Pokémon. Both Pokémon must be capable of breeding with one another.
Additional clauses: Ditto is banned. Genders must alternate unless LGBTQ is specified in the description.

Seeing how Valentine's day will come to pass during the next week, we decided that we'd start the thread out by making our Pokémon do nasty things to each other. If you are not familiar with the mechanics of Pokémon breeding, both Pokémon must share the same egg group in order to breed. In addition, Pokémon in the undiscovered egg group cannot breed with any other Pokémon and genderless Pokémon are incapable of breeding with anything other than Ditto, meaning that they can not be used in cores.

Egg groups can be easily found on Bulbapedia. I have linked you to the egg group page, which contains links to lists of all Pokémon in each egg group for your convenience.

These two are marvelous together in my past few teams. They give an incredibly solid defensive backbone to a team when working in tandem (#Bug_egg_group). They share a lot of synergy overall, as well as two of their moves. Gliscor is the primary special sponge, and Scizor the Physical. Both are capable to cleaning different teams as well, provided they get the change to boost up. Scizor's priority can tear apart offense if boosted, as well as taking on big threats to her husband like Kyurem(-B), Weavile, and bulkier Grass-types. In addition to supporting the rest of the family/team, Scizor's slow U-turns support Gliscor in particular but getting him in to safely activate his Toxic Orb and let the shenannigans start. Gliscor on the other hand supports his wife by dismantling defensive teams, and collecting item-gifts for her through use of Knock Off. Gliscor is also one of the best counters to that mean ex-boyfriend Heatran that could be asked for.

They are beautiful teammates, beautiful lovers, and beautiful parents.

Mega Altaria checks every relevant Electric type, and can even cure Gyarados of status.
Double Dragon Dance puts on the appropriate pressure vs offense, balance, and stall. Gyarados will almost always be used as the early/mid game breaker, whilst Mega Altaria can clean up late game.

Its been a pretty slow week in general, so I'm gonna drop a core. This core is also dropping a hint about what next week's more competitively-oriented theme will be, so see if you can figure it out from the core.

Bisharp (M) @ Life Orb / Shuca Berry
Ability: Defiant
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Sucker Punch
- Knock Off
- Iron Head

Lopunny (F) @ Lopunnite
Ability: Limber
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Fake Out
- Quick Attack
- High Jump Kick
- Return
This core is super old and well-known, but I'm gonna post it anyway because it meets all the critera both for the hint and for this week and because noone can really lay claim to something that has been universally used since the split second that Mega Lopunny was released. Lopunny and Bisharp share a number of checks with one another, chiefly fat grounds, while also having very complementary offensive typing with dark and fighting, respectively. Quick Attack Lopunny is one of my favorite sets for its ability to literrally negate Weavile and to tackle weakened scarfers that attempt to RK it, as well as being able to beat out opposing weakened Lopunny who lack Quick Attack. I'm a sucker for priority in general, with me almost always opting for an abundance of it over a scarfer, and as such this core fills a large number of needs for my offensive teams. Shuca Berry Bisharp is a really cool set for this core because it allows it to beat Hippowdon after an SD, PhysDef Lando after a boost from Intimidate (offensive sets just die to +1 sucker after rocks anyway iirc) and TankChomp in general. Lopunny adores the KOff support because it takes out the helmets that are commonly used to punish its Fake Out, allowing it to click it pretty freely.

Weavile
(F) @ Life Orb
Ability: Pickpocket
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Knock Off
- Icicle Crash
- Ice Shard
- Pursuit

Manectric (M) @ Manectite
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Volt Switch
- Thunderbolt
- Flamethrower
- Hidden Power Ice

These are both in the field egg group. Weavile is one of the scariest threats in OU, possessing great speed, power, and coverage. Despite its offensive prowess, there are still numerous threats Weavile dislikes crossing paths with. Among these include Azumarill, Keldeo, Mega Scizor, Skarmory, and so on. This is where Mega Manectric comes in, giving Weavile a hand by threatening the aforementioned Pokemon nicely. Moreover, Mega Manectric is able to scare away things like Talonflame, which threatens Weavile with priority Brave Bird. In return, Weavile pressures several problematic Pokemon for Mega Manectric, such as Hippowdon and Mega Altaria. With Pursuit, it's also able to trap Latios and Latios. Other coverage moves like Poison Jab allow Weavile to lure the likes of Clefable, and these are all things Mega Manectric appreciates.

Overall, these two form a nice offensive partnership. They offer amazing offensive coverage between their STABs, and together they contribute a great amount of speed to a team. They apply a good amount of pressure on a variety of builds, and this is only amplified by Mega Manectric's ability to grab momentum with Volt Switch and provide Weavile with free switch in opportunities.

Aww, look at these two <3


Tyranitar (F) @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Stone Edge
- Pursuit
- Superpower
- Crunch


Venusaur (M) @ Venusaurite
Ability: Chlorophyll
EVs: 232 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 20 Spe
Modest Nature
- Giga Drain
- Sludge Bomb
- Hidden Power Fire
- Synthesis

I've seen this pair on some teams before, but as far as I know it hasn't been listed anywhere yet, and they both happen to be part of the Monster Egg Group. Tyranitar and Mega Venusaur synergise quite well together, both offensively and defensively. Venusaur is able to switch in on many of Tyranitar's checks and counters and beat them 1v1, such as Azumarill, Breloom, Keldeo, and Mega Diancie. And when Venusaur is in trouble with a Psychic type like Hoopa or one of the Lati twins, Tyranitar can come in and Pursuit trap the threat. If it's a Flying type like Talonflame that's bothering Venusaur, this is no problem for Tyranitar either, who can just KO with Stone Edge. Venusaur does have to be careful of Tyranitar's sandstorm though, which can hinder his recovery with Synthesis.

Scizor's priority can tear apart offense if boosted, as well as taking on big threats to her husband like Kyurem(-B), Weavile, and bulkier Grass-types. In addition to supporting the rest of the family/team, Scizor's slow U-turns support Gliscor in particular but getting him in to safely activate his Toxic Orb and let the shenannigans start. Gliscor on the other hand supports his wife by dismantling defensive teams, and collecting item-gifts for her through use of Knock Off. Gliscor is also one of the best counters to that mean ex-boyfriend Heatran that could be asked for.
Core 2:
Altaria-Mega @ Altarianite
Ability: Cloud Nine
EVs: 248 HP / 136 Def / 96 SpD / 28 Spe
Impish Nature
- Return
- Heal Bell
- Dragon Dance
- Roost

Gyarados @ Watmel Berry
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Waterfall
- Bounce
- Natural Gift
- Dragon Dance
Natural Gift Fire Gyarados paves the way for a Mega Altaria. Waterfall for Heatran, and Talonflame. Bounce for Venusaur, and Amoonguss, and Natural Gift for Scizor, and Ferrothorn.
Mega Altaria checks every relevant Electric type, and can even cure Gyarados of status.
Double Dragon Dance puts on the appropriate pressure vs offense, balance, and stall. Gyarados will almost always be used as the early/mid game breaker, whilst Mega Altaria can clean up late game.

Lopunny (F) @ Lopunnite
Ability: Limber
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Fake Out
- Quick Attack
- High Jump Kick
- Return
This core is super old and well-known, but I'm gonna post it anyway because it meets all the critera both for the hint and for this week and because noone can really lay claim to something that has been universally used since the split second that Mega Lopunny was released. Lopunny and Bisharp share a number of checks with one another, chiefly fat grounds, while also having very complementary offensive typing with dark and fighting, respectively. Quick Attack Lopunny is one of my favorite sets for its ability to literrally negate Weavile and to tackle weakened scarfers that attempt to RK it, as well as being able to beat out opposing weakened Lopunny who lack Quick Attack. I'm a sucker for priority in general, with me almost always opting for an abundance of it over a scarfer, and as such this core fills a large number of needs for my offensive teams. Shuca Berry Bisharp is a really cool set for this core because it allows it to beat Hippowdon after an SD, PhysDef Lando after a boost from Intimidate (offensive sets just die to +1 sucker after rocks anyway iirc) and TankChomp in general. Lopunny adores the KOff support because it takes out the helmets that are commonly used to punish its Fake Out, allowing it to click it pretty freely.
Core 4:
Weavile (F) @ Life Orb
Ability: Pickpocket
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Knock Off
- Icicle Crash
- Ice Shard
- Pursuit

Manectric (M) @ Manectite
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Volt Switch
- Thunderbolt
- Flamethrower
- Hidden Power Ice
These are both in the field egg group. Weavile is one of the scariest threats in OU, possessing great speed, power, and coverage. Despite its offensive prowess, there are still numerous threats Weavile dislikes crossing paths with. Among these include Azumarill, Keldeo, Mega Scizor, Skarmory, and so on. This is where Mega Manectric comes in, giving Weavile a hand by threatening the aforementioned Pokemon nicely. Moreover, Mega Manectric is able to scare away things like Talonflame, which threatens Weavile with priority Brave Bird. In return, Weavile pressures several problematic Pokemon for Mega Manectric, such as Hippowdon and Mega Altaria. With Pursuit, it's also able to trap Latios and Latios. Other coverage moves like Poison Jab allow Weavile to lure the likes of Clefable, and these are all things Mega Manectric appreciates.

Overall, these two form a nice offensive partnership. They offer amazing offensive coverage between their STABs, and together they contribute a great amount of speed to a team. They apply a good amount of pressure on a variety of builds, and this is only amplified by Mega Manectric's ability to grab momentum with Volt Switch and provide Weavile with free switch in opportunities.
Core 5:
Tyranitar (F) @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Sand Stream
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Stone Edge
- Pursuit
- Superpower
- Crunch

Venusaur (M) @ Venusaurite
Ability: Chlorophyll
EVs: 232 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 20 Spe
Modest Nature
- Giga Drain
- Sludge Bomb
- Hidden Power Fire
- Synthesis
I've seen this pair on some teams before, but as far as I know it hasn't been listed anywhere yet, and they both happen to be part of the Monster Egg Group. Tyranitar and Mega Venusaur synergise quite well together, both offensively and defensively. Venusaur is able to switch in on many of Tyranitar's checks and counters and beat them 1v1, such as Azumarill, Breloom, Keldeo, and Mega Diancie. And when Venusaur is in trouble with a Psychic type like Hoopa or one of the Lati twins, Tyranitar can come in and Pursuit trap the threat. If it's a Flying type like Talonflame that's bothering Venusaur, this is no problem for Tyranitar either, who can just KO with Stone Edge. Venusaur does have to be careful of Tyranitar's sandstorm though, which can hinder his recovery with Synthesis.


Due to the low number of submissions this week, you can vote for one core as opposed to the usual two. Best of luck to all who submitted cores!

This core has pretty good synergy. Talonflame is a powerful priority abuser, checking Keldeo, Tornadus, Venusaur, Amoongus, and Mega Heracross for Breloom. Apicot Berry+ Natural gift beats Heatran, which otherwise is a problem for the core and Flare Blitz beats Scizor. Breloom checks Landorus, Hippowdon, and Tyranitar, and beats most Steel types for Talonflame. Double SD helps this even further, as Breloom is then able to KO Diancie and Tank Chomp, and Talonflame can sweep.
