[SET COMMENTS]

Set Description
=============
Galarian Moltres is a bulky special attacker that uses Special Attack boosts from Berserk and Nasty Plot to overwhelm its opponents. Its typing allows it to beat Dragapult, Cresselia, Spectrier, and both Urshifu formes with STAB Fiery Wrath and Hurricane. Endure + Custap Berry provides a free turn versus most Pokemon to attack, setup Nasty Plot, or use Endure on frail offensive Pokemon like Choice item Galarian Darmanitan. Galarian Moltres has good matchups against Pokemon like stall Azumarill, some Ferrothorn, and most Celesteela thanks to Nasty Plot.

EVs
=============
140 HP and 248 Defense EVs allow Galarian Moltres to survive Outrage from Adamant Choice Band Haxorus and Fishious Rend from Adamant Choice Scarf Dracovish. The remaining EVs are put into Special Attack for maximum damage output.

An alternate EV spread of 80 HP / 192 Def / 124 SpA / 112 Spe with a Modest nature has a better SubSeed Celesteela and Taunt Corviknight matchup, but has worse matchups versus Haxorus and Dracovish. The Defense EVs survive Close Combat from Choice Band Urshifu, while the HP EVs allow Galarian Moltres to live Choice Specs Volcanion's Overheat. The Speed investment is for Celesteela while the remaining EVs are put in Special Attack.

Usage Tips
=============
Against Pokemon that cannot threaten to OHKO Galarian Moltres, such as Haxorus, Urshifu, and Naganadel, it should attack on turn 1. An exception to this is Celesteela, where Galarian Moltres should use Nasty Plot once and 2HKO with Fiery Wrath afterward. Against foes that threaten to OHKO Galarian Moltres, such as Galarian Darmanitan, Endure allows it to survive the hit and OHKO back.

When facing foes that both have the option of OHKOing Galarian Moltres or not, such as Porygon-Z and Life Orb Dracovish, Galarian Moltres can either use Endure against a move that would otherwise OHKO, or predict that the foe will play around it and use an attacking move or Nasty Plot to save Endure for the next turn. Some prediction is also required versus Metagross, since Nasty Plot should be used on Weakness Policy variants, while Fiery Wrath is used on other variants.

[SET COMMENTS]

Set Description
=============
Assault Vest Galarian is strong against special attackers, such as Magnezone, Volcanion, and non-Life Orb Porygon-Z. It is also strong against common Custap Berry users, such as Magnezone and Sawk. Snarl has reliable matchups against Porygon-Z, Magnezone, Volcanion, and Heatran.

EVs
=============
The HP and Defense investment enables Galarian Moltres to survive a Meteor Mash from +2 Adamant Metagross.
The Special Defense allows it to beat Choice Specs Magnezone. The Speed investment is for Modest Magnezone, and the remaining EVs are put into Special Attack.

Usage Tips
=============
Against an opposing Porygon-Z, Galarian Moltres should use Snarl on turn 1, Fiery Wrath on turn 2, and Sucker Punch on turn 3. Against an opposing Metagross, Galarian Moltres should use Fiery Wrath turn 1. If the damage reveals Assault Vest Metagross, then it should use another Fiery Wrath and then use Sucker Punch on turn 3. If the opposing Metagross either is a Weakness Policy or Choice Band set, Galarian Moltres should use Sucker Punch immediately afterward. Against an opposing Magnezone, Galarian Moltres should use Snarl on the first two turns, Fiery Wrath on turn 3, and Sucker Punch on turn 4.

[SET COMMENTS]

Set Description
=============
Rocky Helmet Galarian Moltres uses Nasty Plot and Taunt to have better matchups versus stall Pokemon, such as Ferrothorn and Chansey, and physical attackers, such as Assault Vest Metagross and specially defensive Haxorus, while still hitting Dark-, Ghost-, Fighting-, and Grass-types with its STAB moves.

EVs
=============
The HP and Defense EVs allow Galarian Moltres to not be 2HKOed by Gyro Ball from non-Adamant Ferrothorn while maximizing odds against Choice Scarf Volcanion. The Special Attack allows Galarian Moltres to OHKO most Ferrothorn sets after a Nasty Plot, a boost from Berserk, and a turn of Rocky Helmet damage. The remaining EVs are put in Speed.

Usage Tips
=============
Against an opposing Ferrothorn, Galarian Moltres should use Nasty Plot on turn 1, Taunt on turn 2, and Hurricane on turn 3. Against an opposing Chansey, Galarian Moltres should always use Taunt on turn 1, Nasty Plot on turn 2, and Fiery Wrath on turn 3. If Chansey uses Seismic Toss once during the first three turns, Galarian Moltres can use Taunt again and use Fiery Wrath twice to secure the win. If Chansey uses Seismic Toss twice during the first three turns, Galarian Moltres should use Taunt on turn 4 and Hurricane on turn 5 to secure the win. If Chansey uses Seismic Toss on all three of the first three turns, Galarian Moltres should use Fiery Wrath on turn 4 to secure the win. However, against specially defensive Chansey sets, some prediction is required with when to use Taunt.

Some prediction is also required against Metagross, as Galarian Moltres should use Nasty Plot against Weakness Policy variants and Fiery Wrath against all other sets.

[STRATEGY COMMENTS]
Other Options
=============
Galarian Moltres may also use Sitrus Berry to beat Assault Vest Entei or Wacan Berry to beat Regieleki.

Endure + Custap Berry allows Galarian Moltres to take a hit from a frail offensive pokemon, such as Choiced Galarian Darmanitan and Pheromosa, and then OHKO them the next turn with +1 Special Attack thanks to Berserk.
Maybe I'd reword this, Custap Berry beats a lot of mons (haxorus, vish) but most of the time you don't endure t1. Endure is mostly used t2 if needed. but ye phero darmg are fine exs for t1 endure.

An alternate EV spread of 80 HP / 192 Def / 124 SpA / 112 Spe with a Modest nature can be used to obtain a better Celesteela and Corviknight matchup.
Wdym by better, does it beat them or roll them.

An alternate EV spread of 80 HP / 192 Def / 124 SpA / 112 Spe with a Modest nature can be used to obtain a better Celesteela and Corviknight matchup. The Defense EVs are to survive Adamant Choice Band Urshifu's Close Combat, and the HP EVs allow Galarian Moltres to live Modest Choice Specs Volcanion's Overheat. The Speed investment is for Timid Celesteela, and the remaining EVs are put in Special Attack.
Mention the negative part of this spread, what do you miss out on? What does the other set beat this doesn't

Some prediction may also be required with Endure versus pokemon that have the option of OHKOing Galarian Moltres or not.
examples?
as well as a few Custap Berry pokemon with the use of Sucker Punch.
Examples??

The HP and Defense investment enables Galarian Moltres to survive a +2 Adamant Meteor Mash from Metagross. The Special Defense allows it to live Thunderbolt from -1 Choice Specs Magnezone into -2 Choice Specs magnezone.
Mention WP for +2 and Snarl for the -1
The Special Attack allows it to nearly always OHKO bulky Urshifu, and the remaining EVs are put in speed.
What's "bulky" Urshifu?

The Special Attack allows it to nearly always OHKO bulky Urshifu, and the remaining EVs are put in speed.
Why are EVs put into speed and not spa for better Urshifu if you "nearly" KO. If there's a benchmark for speed, specify

If Chansey Seismic Tosses once, you can taunt again and win with a two Fiery Wraths.
If Chansey Seismic Tosses twice, you win with Taunt on turn 4, then Hurricane on turn 5.
If Chansey Seismic Tosses three times, Fiery Wrath turn 4 to KO.
Specify "during the first turns" like the already mentioned ones.

Some prediction is also required versus Metagross, Nasty Plotting on Weakness Policy variants, while clicking Fiery Wrath onto other variants.
Sus to say that RH gives it better phys attackers chance like metagross then say u have to predict metagross
Galarian Moltres can make use of a Weakness Policy set to beat Primarina, with a moveset of Snarl, Hurricane, Nasty Plot and Sucker Punch / Fiery Wrath, and an EV spread of 224 HP / 92 Def / 116 Spa / 60 SpD / 16 Spe , although this is not too reliable and is prone to being encored.
IDK if we should add this tbh, I'd lean more into not, since Primarina always encore t1.


Don't forget your examples. 1/2, DM me on cord if needed.

Set Description
=============

Against a foe that threatens to OHKO Galarian Moltres, such as Galarian Darmanitan, Endure allows it to take the hit and OHKO back.

When facing Pokemon that have the option of OHKOing Galarian Moltres or not, such as Porygon-Z and Life Orb Dracovish, Galarian Moltres has two options: use Endure against a move that would otherwise OHKO, or use an attacking move to save Endure for the next turn, predicting that the foe will play around it.
