[SET COMMENTS]
Regieleki's unmatched Speed tier alongside an adequate utility movepool makes it one of the metagame's best dedicated dual screens leads. The combination of Reflect, Light Screen, and Light Clay gives its teammates plenty of opportunities to set up. Rapid Spin helps counter opposing entry hazard leads like Azelf and Swampert and works well with Refrigerate to prevent Ghost-types like Dhelmise and Chandelure from spinblocking. Refrigerate-boosted Explosion also prevents the aforementioned Ghost-types from blocking Regieleki entirely, punishes unsuspecting Ground-types like Garchomp and Landorus-T, and generates momentum to give free entry for its teammates. Volt switch is an alternative support option to pivot Regieleki's teammates safely into the field without KOing itself, potentially to set up dual screens again later. Prankster might seem redundant, but it usually guarantees both screens are set against priority users like Grassy Surge Zarude and Dhelmise. The Speed EVs let Regieleki outspeed Choice Scarf Azelf; if forgoing Explosion, maximum HP investment is also an option.

Regieleki fits exclusively on hyper offense teams that appreciate it reliably setting up dual screens and removing entry hazards. Setup sweepers like Kommo-o, Galarian Moltres, Volcarona, Polteageist, and Dhelmise love Regieleki's dual screens to set up easier. Rapid Spin also significantly helps Polteageist, Volcarona, and Galarian Moltres, preserving the former's Focus Sash and alleviating the latter two's Stealth Rock weakness to opt for more offensive items or abilities such as Sheer Force + Life Orb and Weakness Policy, respectively. Dhelmise's Grassy Surge also grants Regieleki with much-appreciated recovery, as well as weakening Earthquake from foes like Swampert and Garchomp, providing it with longevity to set up dual screens again.

Regieleki's blazing Speed tier and coveted BoltBeam coverage thanks to Refrigerate allow it to be a solid pivot, revenge killer, and entry hazard remover all in one. Volt Switch threatens non-Volt Absorb Corviknight, Tapu Fini, and Toxapex, lets it pivot out of checks such as Ferrothorn and specially defensive Heatran, and works exceptionally well with its Refrigerate-boosted attacks that dissuade Ground-types like Garchomp and Landorus-T from trying to block it. Refrigerate-boosted Extreme Speed revenge kills boosted threats like Garchomp, Galarian Moltres, and Salamence, outprioritizes Dhelmise and Zarude's Grassy Glide and Zygarde-10%'s Extreme Speed, and highly damages specially defensive Pokemon like Blissey. Explosion can surprise and cripple foes like Ferrothorn, Swampert, and Volt Absorb Corviknight and allow a teammate to come in freely afterwards. Rapid Spin supports its teammates with entry hazard removal, especially with Refrigerate to prevent spinblocking attempts from the likes of Dhelmise and Doublade. Never-Melt Ice can be used instead of Life Orb to boost Regieleki's Ice coverage without taking recoil. The Speed EVs let Regieleki outspeed +1 base 100 Speed Pokemon like Mew, Volcarona, and Jirachi.

Refrigerate Regieleki fits in hyper and bulky offense teams by providing them with valuable offensive utility. It provides insurance for the team by reliably outspeeding and threatening fast threats like Barraskewda, Azelf, and Cinderace that would otherwise overwhelm its teammates prior to boosting. Teammates weak to entry hazards like Focus Sash Polteageist, Choice Band Cinderace, and Aerilate Salamence appreciate Regieleki's Rapid Spin support. Cinderace, in particular, can help pressure Regieleki's Steel-type checks in Heatran, Ferrothorn, and RegenVest Jirachi as well as forgo Court Change in favor of another attacking move. Due to Regieleki's inability to threaten Swampert outside of KOing itself with Explosion, teammates like Zarude and Dhelmise are necessary to pressure it. Without having to rely on Defog, hazard-stacking leads like Skarmory and Mew can freely set up Stealth Rock and Spikes, with Regieleki also threatening common Defoggers like Corviknight, Mandibuzz, and Tapu Fini. Barraskewda forms a fast and potent VoltTurn core with Regieleki by bringing it in safely on its bulky Water-type switch-ins like Slowbro and Tapu Fini. Wallbreakers like Galarian Zapdos and Terrakion also appreciate Regieleki's Volt Switch to bring them in on foes like Heatran and Blissey.

[STRATEGY COMMENTS]
Other Options
=============

Emergency Exit can be used on the dual screens set due to Regieleki's immense Speed tier to reliably set up at least one screen before taking a huge hit, which immediately lets a teammate free entry afterwards. Heavy-Duty Boots can be used on the Life Orb set to be a more effective pivot and entry hazard remover, but missing out on the damage boost is generally undesired for the fast-paced teams it fit in. Swift grants a special move to hit physically defensive Ice-weak foes like Dauntless Shield Kommo-o and Hippowdon harder without KOing itself, but its low BP makes it undesirable in other situations.

Checks and Counters
===================

**Priority Users**: Triage users like Kommo-o, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, and Togekiss can outprioritize even Regieleki's Extreme Speed, allowing them to reliably pick it off due to its poor bulk. Pokemon like Barraskewda, Zarude, Entei, and Lucario can use their own priority attacks to pick off a weakened Regieleki while also stomaching its Extreme Speed when healthy. However, none of them can safely switch into Regieleki.

**Chip Damage**: With Life Orb damage sticking in, being an entry hazard remover that is vulnerable to them, and forced to hit Rocky Helmet users like Swampert and Kommo-o with its contact moves, Regieleki is prone to being worn down quite fast.

**Bulky Steel-types**: RegenVest Jirachi and specially defensive Heatran can take on any of Regieleki's attacks easily. Even though they don't like taking an Explosion, Ferrothorn can punish its contact moves with Rocky Helmet while Volt Absorb Corviknight can use it as setup fodder.

Regieleki's unmatched Speed tier alongside an adequate utility movepool make it one of the metagame's best dedicated screens setters. The combination of Reflect + Light Screen + Light Clay gives its teammates plenty of opportunities to set up. Rapid Spin relieves them off of entry hazards pressure, which especially helps if it's facing up against opposing leads like Aerodactyl and Azelf, and works well with Refrigerate to prevent Ghost-types like Dhelmise and Chandelure from spinblocking. Refrigerate-boosted Explosion also prevents the aforementioned Ghost-types from blocking it Regieleki entirely, punishes unsuspecting Ground-types like Garchomp and Landorus-T, and generates momentum to give free entry for its teammates. However, Volt switch is an alternative support option to pivot its Regieleki's teammates safely into the field without KOing itself, potentially to set up screens again later. Prankster might seem redundant, but it guarantees that at least one screen is set against priority users like Grassy Surge Zarude and Dhelmise. The EVs spread let Regieleki outspeed Choice Scarf Azelf and (QC pls help what are the HP and Atk for). Honestly just dump everything into Attack and say it's to maximize explosion dmg

Regieleki fits exceptionally well This should say exclusively, as this set isn't good on anything except HO. on hyper offense teams that appreciate it reliably setting up screens and removing entry hazards. Setup sweepers like Kommo-o, Galarian Moltres, Volcarona, and Dhelmise love Regieleki's screens to set up easier. Its Rapid Spin also significantly helps Volcarona and Galarian Moltres by alleviating their Stealth Rock weakness and thus, they can opt to run more offensive items or abilities such as Sheer Force + Life Orb and Weakness Policy, respectively. Dhelmise's Grassy Surge also grants Regieleki with much-appreciated recovery as well as weakening Earthquake from foes like Swampert and Garchomp, providing it with longevity to set up screens again. I'd mention polteageist as an HO parter since it appreciates regieleki spinning hazards against opposing leads

Volt Switch threatens Non-Volt Absorb Corviknight, Tapu Fini, and Toxapex, lets it pivot out of its checks like Ferrothorn and specially defensive Heatran, and works exceptionally well with its Refrigate-boosted attacks by dissuading Ground-types like Garchomp and Landorus-T from trying to block it.

Explosion can punch a huge hole on foes like mention VA corviknight too Ferrothorn and Swampert and allows a teammate to come in freely afterwards. Rapid Spin supports its teammates with entry hazard removal, especially with Refrigerate to prevent spinblocking attempts from the likes of Dhelmise and Doublade. Never-Melt Ice can be used instead of Life Orb to boost Regieleki's ice coverage without making it take recoil.

Life Orb Refrigerate Regieleki fits in hyper and bulky offense teams by providing them with valuable offensive utility.

Hazard-weak teammates like Focus Sash Polteageist, Choice Band Cinderace, and Aerilate Salamence appreciate Regieleki's Rapid Spin support. Cinderace in particular can help pressure Regieleki's Steel-type checks in Heatran, Ferrothorn, and RegenVest Jirachi as well as forgo Court Change in favor of another attacking move. Mention Swampert: it walls regieleki's moves and forces it to explode for a 1:1 trade, so teammates that can help you not have to do that like gsurge zarude/dhelm are prtty good. Without having to rely on Defog, hazard-stacking leads like Skarmory and Mew can freely setup their Stealth Rock and Spikes, with Regieleki also threatening common Defoggers like Corviknight, Mandibuzz, and Tapu Fini. Other teammates worth mentioning + why: primsea Barraskewda = forms fast voltturn core with it; Swampert = switches into opposing swampert that try to pivot it on vs it; zapdos-galar and/or terrakion = come in on tran and blissey trying to pivot into volt switch and blows them up with CC

Ferrothorn can also punish it with Rocky Helmet, while Volt Absorb Corviknight can use it as setup fodder. This isn't quite true. Ferrothorn and VA Corv don't really want to take an Explosion, so I would specify that
