Pokemon Sword & Shield Random Battle Sets

That information was obtained via dataming the game.
Even then, there's no certainty regarding this information, and all I see now is mons being added in based on one's hypothesis
I'd even add that the previous leaks of the sort have proven to be extremely accurate for IoA
Even if it may have some credibility, there's still a chance someone messed up and maybe things like Hoenn starters actually weren't planned.
GF is not going to change a bunch of stuff simply because the information leaked
I never said that? I was only saying a last-minute change was possible. I also doubt they would change anything based on leaked info.

And? Random Battle is a fun format to play with all Pokémon in a sort of even playing field that can’t be attained in any real tier. All Pokémon should be usable, frankly. But it is a lot more interesting to phase the releases according to the DLCs. Being able to play with DLC2 Pokémon months in advance is quite neat and I don’t know what you’re trying to argue. Any Pokémon we desire can be added to random battle regardless of leaks and datamines. If you have some sort of problem playing with Pokémon that are not currently legal in the game, fine, a Battle Factory format containing completely legal sets is being worked on will be available for your enjoyment in the near future. In the meantime, I advice you stop arguing in this thread as that is not its purpose.
 
Petition to transform Froslass into a physical mon - replace shadow ball with poltergeist and ice beam with triple axel. Froslass has 80spa and 80atk, so higher BP moves would be better?

Ideal moves: poltergeist, triple axel, spikes, dbond, taunt, (ice shard/sucker punch? great speed tier but to kill the ultra fast- or boosted mons)
Ideal items: sash, LO
I have one of the greatest randbats minds on my side so yeah. Not messing around >:0

Triple Axel is too inconsistent to give up Ice Beam imo. The chance of hitting three times is 72.9%.

I don't mind Poltergeist, I suppose.

Pokemon with a priority move shouldn’t roll scarf. Scarf Rillaboom is a totally fine set, but not if its only stab move is grassy glide.
Fixed.

I think ninjask should have acrobatics replaced with dual wingbeat and have HDB as it’s item even if acro is stronger, not having an item kinda sucks
I love Boots but that is a large power drop for a weak mon like Ninjask.

had already fainted but here’s my marowak-a set:

correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t Shadow Bone outclassed by Poltergeist in like every way? Also flare blitz would have been nice but I can see the flame charge niche i guess
The consensus seems to be that Shadow Bone is preferred given Knock Off being so common. Additionally, it is 100% accurate with a useful secondary effect.

body press body slam miltank is nice and all until ur opponent summons a ghost type, its set is set up for failure
Curse Miltank should always have Scrappy now.
 
I know Hitmonlee with Curse and Unburden used to be a somewhat good set back in gen 7... but, why, for the love of God, does it get a sitrus berry?
 
Why does Thievul often have both Nasty Plot and Parting Shot? It should be one or the other in my opinion. It gets other moves like Shadow Ball, Psychic, Grass Knot, and even Mud Shot so I think it has enough options to be either-or
 
Please replace the awful perish trap Azumaril set with its doubles Huge Power set, maybe replace protect with Belly Drum. All perish song azu does is lose momentum and die

Belly Drum Azumarill is trash in this Dynamax metagame. The PerishTrap set is fine. If your don’t know how to use it, that’s on you. It forces switches better than anything. The only one that loses momentum is your opponent.
