Pokemon Sun/Moon Random Battle sets

draco outrage megachomp doesnt seem that bad; meteor gives you a special stab (off 120 spa base), a dragon stab that doesnt lock you in, and a spa drop not mattering much bc youre all physical otherwise

Shadow Ball should be the first moveslot for Z-Conversion Porygon-Z sets. (Or if we're randomizing the Z-Conversion type, Shadow Ball shouldn't be a requirement.)

Battle Spot Singles sets disagree; Z-Conversion(Elec) using Thunderbolt/Ice Beam/Shadow Ball/Conversion is listed as viable there. (Yes, Ice is probably the worst of the Conversion types, but bear with it because it is indeed randomized.)

Besides, what else would you run in that last slot, anyways? When trying to hit a Pokemon that resists BoltBeam, your only viable options are Shadow Ball and Dark Pulse (Magnezone resists Psychic/Psyshock), so it's much better to have Shadow Ball for the chance of getting Ghost Conversion as opposed to being stuck with Dark Conversion.

I'm assuming this isn't mega. What ability and item?

Maybe ice punch should be removed? I don't think the coverage from a punch move is very useful on utility sets, or really any set that isn't banded
it was mega however
 
Yes; the joke is that Cheri Berry, Limber, and Electric typing give it three immunities to paralysis (and its Ground typing gives it a fourth immunity to specifically Thunder Wave).
Does the Levitate + Air Baloon set on Rotom have the same reasoning?

Also, was this part of April 1st?
 
No, it wasn't. Unfortunately I don't have the replay, but the Golduck was holding the Choice Band from Turn 1.
Unfortunately without a replay I'm inclined to believe that you simply remembered wrong because getting choice band on that set is literally impossible according to the code
 
My post got removed (?) without any reason, so I have to post again.

Stunfisk should never have Limberas its ability. Unlike Rotom-Fan it actually also has useful abilities in Static and Sand Veil. Also the Chery Berry is useless.
