Rillaboom is a great Pokemon in VGC 2022 with its powerful priority Grassy Glide KOing or heavily damaging common Water- and Ground-types like Kyogre, Gastrodon, and Groudon. Additionally, Rillaboom uses Fake Out to prevent a foe from moving and allow teammates safer opportunity in attacking or setting up. Miracle Seed grants Rllaboom a much appreciated power boost, allowing its priority Grassy Glide to pick off Pokemon like Groudon and Calyrex-S more easilyand OHKO many variants of bulky Kyogre. High Horsepower 2HKOes the very pertinent Zacian-C and has some usefulness while Gigantamaxed for Max Quake Special Defense boosts. Alternatively, Wood Hammer gives Rillaboom a more powerful Grass-type STAB move which nets OHKOes on bulky Kyogre through Reflect and Groudon and notably dents even resistant foes. Rillaboom doesn't often Gigantamax, but its G-Max Drumsolo is incredibly powerful and can OHKO even a Dynamaxed bulky Kyogre, and 2HKOes many Grass-resistant hyphen Pokemon. The EV spread survives Zacian-C's Behemoth Blade most of the time and outpaces maximum Speed Incineroar.

Strong priority Grassy Glide, targetting Ground- and Water-types like Groudon, Gastrodon, and Kyogre, makes Rillaboom a great Pokemon in VGC 2022. Fake Out is an invaluable support tool which shuts down a foe, allowing teammates opportunities to attack or set up. Assault Vest grants Rillaboom more resilience against special attackers like Kyogre and Calyrex-S, surviving Max Hailstorm and avoiding the 2HKO from Astral Barrage. High Horsepower 2HKOes the extremely common Zacian-C and while Gigantamaxed grants Rillaboom's team Special Defense boosts via Max Quake. Wood Hammer OHKOes bulkier variants of Kyogre which can survive Grassy Glide and Groudon. Knock Off is a decent option which hits Shedinja, Calyrex-S, and Lunala, though Rillaboom's other options tend to be more valuable. U-turn lets Rillaboom pivot powerful teammates like Kyogre and Zacian-C in safely. Rillaboom usually doesn't Gigantamax, but G-Max Drumsolo is a very powerful attack which OHKOes Dynamaxed Kyogre and heavily dents most resistant foes. The given EV spread lives Zacian-C's Behemoth Blade most of the time, OHKOes Kyogre without bulk investment via Grassy Glide, and outpaces maximum Speed Incineroar.

This is gonna sound silly coming from me, but you might want to change the wording of "Dynamaxed", because generally GP prefers us saying "under Dynamax" in my experience.

Otherwise this looks good to me, QC Approved 1/1!

Rillaboom is a great Pokemon excels in VGC 2022 with due to its powerful priority Grassy Glide lethally or heavily damaging common Water- and Ground-types like Kyogre, Gastrodon, and Groudon.

Miracle Seed Seed grants Rillaboom misspelling a much appreciated power boost, (add comma) allowing its priority Grassy Glide to pick off Pokemon like Groudon and Calyrex-S more easily, and OHKO as well as OHKOing many variants of bulky Kyogre. High Horsepower 2HKOes the very pertinent Zacian-C, and has some usefulness while Gigantamaxed for Max Quake Special Defense boosts. Alternatively, Wood Hammer gives Rillaboom a more powerful Grass-type STAB move which nets OHKOes on bulky Kyogre in reflect and Groudon, and notably dents most resists. Rillaboom doesn't often Gigantamax, but its G-Max Drumsolo is incredibly powerfu and can OHKO even a Dynamaxed bulky Kyogre, (remove comma) and 2HKOes many Grass resistant Pokemon.
