Tatsugiri spins into as action a phenomenal offensive spinner in RU! With Nasty Plot, Tatsugiri can set up on Palossand, Slowbro, and Bellibolt. Draco Meteor hits opposing Tatsugiri and Altaria hard while also doing good damage to Espeon and Slowbro. Surf provides coverage for Fairy- and Steel-types like Gardevoir, Klefki, and Revavroom. Rapid Spin increases Tatsugiri's Speed and clears entry hazards from Mudsdale and Klefki. Tera Steel removes its weakness against Fairy, which is important in the Gardevoir matchup. Tatsugiri can fit on a variety of teams that need a spinner. Fighting-types such as Hariyama and Flamigo can take down Blissey and Cryogonal, while Tatsugiri beats Slowbro and Rotom-H for them.

Hi!

-Tatsugiri definitely cant setup vs Arcanine given offensive sets can just decide to run coverage like close combat, and tera mindgames do not really help vs Arcanine since tera steel just makes it vulnerable to getting flare blitzed on. It is a mon that should just really setting up vs defensive mons. You can add Palossand being one of the mons it can setup on. Palossand instead of Arcanine in that mention.

-Commander should be the only ability on this set. Right now the interaction with Trace Gardevoir makes Commander a necessity since otherwise you are funnily walled by gardevoir tracing storm drain for surf and being immune to draco meteor. Not even teraing help, so please make it Commander only. It already resists water x4 times anyways.

-"while also hitting targets such as Espeon and Slowbro for Neutral Damage" Do not like this sentence, yes it hits them for neutral damage but in order to sell the mon a bit more saying like "while also hitting targets such as Espeon and Slowbro for a good amount of damage" or something that praises it a little more is makes it notable. Doing 77 to espeon and 60 to Slowbro unboosted is nothing to slouch at.

-"Surf strikes fairy and steel types such as Gardevoir, Klefki, and Bronzong for neutral damage" Saying for good neutral damage is better, gotta emphasize how decent the damage can be. Also mention Revavroom over Bronzong. Tatsugiri isnt even Bronzong ever, and I dont think it is a good idea to mention Bronzong interactions that arent positive if we want to throw him on a spotlight. Tatsugiri is a good mon, but we dont have to go over potential misinformation and shortcomings.

-Krookodile certainly can just beat Tatsugiri in a vacuum so it takes a huge risk from trying to clear hazards froom Krook, Krook outspeeds and doesnt even have to respect it. Id say to mention Mudsdale over Krook since Mudsdale gotta respect Tatsugiri. Also removes Bronzong from the mention, Bronzong just straight up beats it, doesnt even have to fear it. Just mentioning "Hazards from Pokemon like Mudsdale and Klefki" sends the point across that Spin helps with that.

-Last sentence needs to add a bit more to it. Fighting types are great partners for Tatsugiri to help vs stuff like Blissey and Cryogonal, but they dont really mind hazards that much. Mention Pokemon Tatsugiri can beat for them, while also spinning hazards, like: Slowbro once more, Rotom-Heat which can be annoying for Migo, a bit of additional detail so any reader can understand.


May seem like much but it is overall some small changes and working on more "impactful" phrasing. We are doing an spotlight after that. I will leave the grammatical aspects to ones with more expertise

QC 1/1 once this is implemented. Any questions you can let me know.

Cheers!

Tatsugiri spins into action! Tatusgiri is as a phenomenal offensive spinner in RU! With Nasty Plot, Tatsugiri can set up on Palossand, Slowbro, and Bellibolt. Draco Meteor hits opposing Tatsugiri and Altaria for great damage, while also hitting targets such as Espeon and Slowbro for good damage, doing 77% to Espeon and 60% to Slowbro unboosted hard while also doing good damage to Espeon and Slowbro. Surf strikes fairy and steel types such as provides coverage for Fairy- and Steel-types like Gardevoir, Klefki, and Revaroom for solid damage. Rapid Spin is the key of this set, for it increases Tatsugiri's Speed and clears entry hazards from Mudsdale and Klefki. Tera Steel removes its weakness against Fairy, which is important in the Gardevoir matchup. Tatsugiri can fit on a variety of teams that need a spinner. Fighting-types hyphen such as Hariyama and Flamigo can take down Blissey and Cryogonal, while Tatsugiri in turn beating beats Slowbro and Rotom-H for them.
