Tapu Woolu

Type: Normal / Fairy
Abilities: Fluffy, H: Telepathy
Stats: 85 Hp / 125 Atk / 95 Def / 90 SpA / 90 SpD / 95 Spe
Movepool Adjustments:
+
Body Press, Cotton Guard, Body Slam, Double-Edge, U-Turn, Bullet Punch, Iron Head, Steel Roller, Meteor Mash,
-All Grass moves except Horn Leech
Flavor: Tapu Woolu are revered as a deity-like figure in the Isle of Armor. People praised this Pokémon as it is said to bring with it great health to herds and Pokémon. Offerings of golden equipment and jewelry are made to this Pokémon in the hope that it would continue to bring its fortune to their herds. If one was to encounter this Pokémon in the wild, it is said that their herds would recieve good luck and fortune for time to come, and those who have seen it for themselves have caught it tending to other Pokémon and caring for their needs while donning the gold that others had so generously gifted it.
Role: Physical Wall with pivoting, no recovery but the ability gives it a unique distinction from fetagross, being fighting neutral and Fire weak while packing an additional immunity to ghost. It also doesn’t have any fairy stab so its different offensively but overall serves the role of your fatass physical wall.

+ Bulldoze, Charge, Charge Beam, Dig, Discharge, Earth Power, Earthquake, Eerie Impulse, Electric Terrain, Magnet Rise, Magnetic Flux, Power Gem, Rock Blast, Rock Slide, Rock Throw, Rock Tomb, Salt Cure, Sandstorm, Spikes, Stealth Rock, Stomping Tantrum, Stone Edge, Thunder, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Volt Switch, Wild Charge
- Hydro Pump, Ice Beam, Ice Spinner, Liquidation, Scald, Surf, Venom Drench, Venoshock
Role: Bird check. Defensive pivot that Volts while laying on the chip with Salt Cure and if you can fit it Spikes. Levitate improves its defensive profile immensely and lets it come in on Condorus packing Ground coverage. It doesn't perfectly answer each Flying in every scenario but that's not possible anyway, I'd just like to see more general switch-ins to them and more defensive stuff overall.
Height: 0.7 m
Flavor: floating rock

Role: Useful defensive typing, answering stuff like Wuggy, Kabluxie and Tar. Status immunity and Ghost neutrality is cool. Does some WispHex stuff, maybe DD.

-All Electric moves
Role: It's Zeraora 2. Serves as a fast offensive pivot, with either Trace to take abilities or Justified to take Knocks Off. Zeraora already has a really solid Fighting movepool, even though it's not Fighting type, so all it needed was the Fairy type additions.
Flavor: fairy zeraora

Sorry for somewhat late post. Here's a sub review which also has our vetoes.

:incineroar: Looks pretty good, though I'd maybe beef up attack a bit more (120 or so) to make it a bit more threatening offensively.
:comfey: Looks very mediocre. Doesn't hit hard enough even with Triage and has no coverage for Grass types. Would buff spA up to 102 or so and give it coverage for Grass-types.
:kartana: This looks like a very strong Meteor Beamer overall, although I would give it some way to hit Steels (most likely Aura Sphere) to make it not completely deadweight vs. them. Overall a fan.
:tapu koko: Looks solid. Should fit nicely into the meta while not being too difficult to beat even with no recoil Brave Birds, seems like a great HO lead too. Not much to say here, just a good sub overall.
:tapu lele: Seems extremely good at making progress, I could see this possibly being borderline broken especially with reliable recovery alongside its current bulk. I'd lower the HP by 10/15 points and put the points into Attack (harder hitting U-Turns are a nice consolation for losing some bulk imo) just to make it a bit easier to remove. With said changes, I think I will really enjoy this sub.
:tapu bulu: This one is solid as well. Fits well into the meta and should be a good addition. Similarly to Pohaku, not much to add here, just a solid sub overall.

:zeraora: Vetoed. 138/135 offenses are crazy and would make this far too strong especially with its great STABs and coverage. You're likely gonna need to lower attack by around 30 points or so to make it balanced, although I'd recommend giving it a different typing than Electric / Fighting since we already have Zapoark, I'd recommend one of Dark / Fighting, Ice / Fighting, or Rock / Fighting personally.
:gumshoos: Looks extremely bad. Salt Cure will not be enough to carry this Pokemon to being good with how mediocre its bulk is alongside the fact that it has no reliable recovery. I don't think Gumshoos simply has a high enough BST to make this concept work without giving it a great ability. I'd recommend trying to make this concept work on a Pokemon with a higher BST, or you could rework it entirely.
:oranguru: Sig actually seems pretty mediocre with this mon's access to Earthquake (Tough Claws is generally better than SJaw on this mon as it boosts both STABs. I'd give this slightly more speed (10 points) and give it U-Turn and coverage to hit Flying types to allow it to be a solid pivot.
:dhelmise: Seems very mediocre. Not only does it seem very outclassed by our current Slush Rusher in Fweezing, but it's low speed and mediocre Attack make this not a threat at all. Would recommend changing this mons secondary typing from Ice to something better (unfortunately this would mean changing the name but snow is in a fine spot currently) and boosting its Attack to be more threatening, or you can rework it entirely.
:vikavolt: Seems alright. Even though defensive rocks are generally bad, this one seems like it could maybe get away with it due to its unique resistances.
:salazzle: I think we have enough Electric pivots in this meta already, would probably preferred if this was a different typing (Fairy / Fighting or Fairy / Dark most likely), but it's certainly not bad and would fit well into the meta.
:guzzlord: Seems okay. Even though it's got crazy bulk for a Pokemon with reliable recovery, its mediocre typing really lets it down, although it's got some ways to make progress with Knock Off, it's likely gonna struggle to work super well without some major support.
:tapu bulu: Crazy good blanket physical wall due to Fluffy. I think this suffers the same problem as this mon when it originally had Fluffy (and it was Steel / Fairy which yea it is better but still), seems very annoying to deal with, although it’s likely not broken this time around. Not a fan.
:toucannon: Vetoed. Deoxys is banned for a reason, and this seems to be nearly just as good as that. You're gonna need to rework the stats on this entirely to make it a lot weaker (at least a reduction to 125 for both attack stats which gives it a similar role to weavile - special is much worse as you've got no way to hit Steels)
:golisopod: Seems pretty good, Steam Engine allows you to play some mindgames with the opponent if they want to click Fire moves, although this mon is walled by Dragons and Waters to make sure it isn't overbearing, which is pretty cool. Otherwise, it seems pretty similar to Volcanion in how it operates, as a strong defensive pivot or wallbreaker - which I enjoy.
:solgaleo: Quite bad. Losing CM makes this mon significantly less threatening specially and no Morning Sun also means that its extremely difficult to deactivate Slow Start. Honestly I would just scrap this and try something different for this slot - trying to balance this around Slow Start is likely not going to work out well.
:incineroar:Not really feeling this one, we've already got a solid enough amount of defensive fightings with Furant and Kabluxie in the meta and our current intimidate mon is also Dark type, not to mention this is essentially Incineroar but Dark / Fighting (aside from the sig, which is pretty cool).
:toxapex: Never really liked Salt Cure, but this is a decent sub overall imo. Seems like it could be a very unique defensive pivot with its utility and access to Salt Cure alongside its solid resistances and immunity to Ground moves.
:tsareena: We've got a good amount of defensive Fighting types in this meta already (Kabluxie and Furant), so I would likely prefer if this was more offensively oriented (remove some bulk and give it 102 speed) and then this is an excellent sub imo. However, even in its current state it's a pretty great sub too, big fan of it even now.
:kommo-o: I think this is pretty neat, although I would prefer if it was slightly more SpDef oriented to separate it from Mirroar a bit as a defensive Ghost. Even so, it looks very solid and should fit nicely into the meta, good sub overall (also change BST here to 600 and not 510 - stats reflect this but sub says its BST is 510)
:palossand: Very similar thoughts on this as Arctana considering they're both meant to be Meteor Beamers, although I believe I prefer Arctana due to its much better speed stat, which makes it a better Beamer than this mon. Not a bad sub though.
:necrozma: Vetoed on the grounds that this Pokemon's BST is incorrect, it is 597 instead of 600 - I'd just mirror Necrozma's stat spread here. Even so, I can see this mon being a huge threat though and possibly ending up being too strong as well due its sheer versatility alongside its now solid typing. Specs or Scarf Dragon Energy sets, SJaw or Solid Rock setup sets are possible and could end up making this mon too difficult to answer imo. I'd get rid of Dragon's Maw and Dragon Energy here to make it more reliant on setup to break through teams, and I'd also consider replacing Solid Rock here, as it seems much more valuable with this mon's improved typing for setting up (possibly with something like Competitive, Sturdy or Trace?)
:zeraora: This is a really great sub imo, bar one thing which I will get to. Seems like a very versatile mon, with the ability to run pivot, or setup sets on both sides of the spectrum, while not being too difficult to answer to its crippling weakness to Poison-types. However, I do think I'd MUCH prefer U-Turn or Volt Switch as this mon's pivoting move over Parting Shot, however, as Parting Shot seems far too easy to click in bringing in other Pokemon with this mon's blazing speed stat and could end up being an issue.

You’ve got 24 hours or so to edit your subs based on feedback.
 
Vetoes are over and now it's voting time! All subs are legal to vote, no list this time because we've been busy ^^; 72 hours as usual!
