[SET COMMENTS]
On Rock teams, Terrakion acts as a powerful revenge killer that decimates Steel-type foes like Bisharp and Excadrill. Its great Speed tier makes it an effective user of Choice Scarf, outspeeding foes like Choice Scarf Zarude, Zeraora, and Spectrier. Terrakion uses both STAB types with Stone Edge and Close Combat thanks to their great synergy, with Stone Edge hitting foes like Spectrier and Close Combat hitting foes that Stone Edge cannot, like Excadrill. Earthquake gives it a means of hitting Aegislash, Nidoking, and Klefki super effectively. Poison Jab allows Terrakion to reliably hit Fairy-types like Tapu Bulu and Tapu Fini.

All of Terrakion's teammates appreciate its ability to pressure Steel-type foes like Bisharp and Excadrill. Shuckle is a great teammate for Terrakion, as not only can it slow opposing Choice Scarf users like Gengar down with Sticky Web, but it can also chip them via Stealth Rock. Meteor Beam Nihilego can break down Water, Ground, and Fairy teams easily by beating foes like Barraskewda, Gastrodon, and Tapu Bulu. It can also run Sticky Barb to wear down foes like Corviknight and Landorus-T, allowing Terrakion to have an easier time sweeping Flying teams. In return, Terrakion is able to devastate Steel and Dark teams for Nihilego. Tyranitar's sand lets Terrakion switch into attacks significantly more easily, and it stops Swift Swim users like Barraskewda and Kingdra from outspeeding Terrakion. Furthermore, Tyranitar deals with foes like Choice Scarf Latias and Slowbro that give Terrakion trouble. Barbaracle is a good teammate for Terrakion, as it can deal with Sand Rush Excadrill and Weavile after Shell Smash. Rhyperior is a decent, teammate, as it not only provides an immunity to Electric, but it can also gang up on Steel-type cores with Terrakion, like those with Heatran and Aegislash.

Megahorn can be used over Earthquake to hit Psychic-types like Latios, Latias, and Slowbro upon. switch-in. Choice Band Terrakion changes its role from a revenge killer to a powerful wallbreaker, but other Rock-types typically cover that role better. Some of the walls that it can break through with Choice Band are Hippowdon and Toxapex. A Swords Dance set with Air Balloon is also viable, as it can freely set up on foes that are Choice locked into Ground-type moves. However, this set is not recommended because it is suboptimal outside of the Ground, Flying, and Steel matchups.

Dragon Dance Dragapult
remove "Dragon Dance" and add Choice Scarf G-Zap to examples
- Stone Edge gives it means of hitting Flying-types like Moltres-Galar, Zapdos, and Tornadus-T super effectively.
- Close Combat gives it reliable STAB while also allowing Terrakion to hit Steel-types like Heatran and Ferrothorn super effectively.
- Earthquake gives it a means of hitting Aegislash, Nidoking, and Klefki super effectively.
lets change the wording and how we approach this. If i quized someone and asked why does Terrakion run Stone Edge on a Rock team, i would not directly state the mons that do absolutely nothing against rock (besides torn). Stone Edge also hits Ghost-types and id probably general it to Fighting-resists or smthn. The same here for CC. Steel-types on a rock analysis (plus), but we are missing Fighting and Ground-types that resist edge. The EQ super effective sentence is the main one that makes the most sense
- brief example of teammates that benefit from the Pokemon's presence
- brief example of foes that the Pokemon is vulnerable to + teammates to help cover them
remove


- Remove Cradily (this mon is pbad u just win water with barb) u cant win rain water with barra+urshifu
- Add Barbarcle
- SD Air Balloon in OO
- lmk when implemented

don't think you need sentences explaining stone edge and close combat individually. if you want you can write something like "Terrakion uses both STABs in Stone Edge and Close Combat thanks to their great synergy, with Stone Edge hitting x and Close Combat hitting y" (include the stuff roxiee mentioned) but don't do individual sentences
don't think you need a justified sentence either, i mean no one reading that is learning anything new really
i used to be big on adding reasons why moves aren't used in oo but i don't think it's that important here really. like is megahorn really that much worse than poison jab? i feel like they're pretty much the same, and i mean poison jab leaves terrakion open to "other, more common threats too" (which is vague but we should just remove the entire sentence anyway)
- get rid of the second sentence in the megahorn and sd parts of oo (the sentence in the sd part isn't really true anyway) and i'd just rewrite the cb part so it's like "cb terrakion changes its role from a revenge killer to a wallbreaker, but that role is typically covered better by other rock-types" or whatever justification u think really

otherwise this looks good, qc 1/3

On Rock teams Terrakion acts as a powerful revenge killer capable of decimating Steel-type foes like Bisharp and Excadrill.(nitpick but, its not only steel. RKing Cinderace, Zarude, Zeraora, Galar Zappy goes a long way for it. Also its on the higher end of the scarfers, only really outsped by scarf Latias/Gengy, Regieleki,scarf Weavile, and scarf Pult) It's great Speed tier makes it an effective user of Choice Scarf, being able to outspeed foes like Choice Scarf Galarian Zapdos and Spectrier (Choice Scarf Zarude, Zeraora, and Choice Scarf Exca seems like a better mention than spectrier, Imo. ). Terrakion uses both STABs in Stone Edge and Close Combat thanks to their great synergy, with Stone Edge hitting foes like Spectrier and Close Combat hitting foes such as Hippowdon (Hippo is a bad example, it walls Terrakion and threatens to OHKO it with Eq. Pick a better one. It would be nice if it flows like Stone Edge hits birbs and x,y,z, which CC is unable to...or something like that I'm not creative at writing this at all. But why is SE and CC syngergistic? something like that). Earthquake gives it a means of hitting Aegislash, Nidoking, and Klefki super effectively. Poison Jab allows Terrakion to hit Fairy-types like Tapu Bulu and Tapu Fini. Justified allows it to switch into Dark-type attacks from foes like Hydreigon and get an Attack boost. (Its not like it has a diff ability)

All of Terrakion's teammates appreciate its ability to switch into Steel-type attacks and take on Steel-type foes like Bisharp and Excadrill (no. It does not switch into Steel-types. DO NOT switch Terrakion into Steel-types pls. It do be pressuring Steel-types for Rock tho, so write it like that instead). Shuckle is a great teammate for Terrakion, as not only can it slow opposing Choice Scarf users like Gengar down, but it can also provide chip damage to them via Stealth Rock. Meteor Beam Nihilego is also a good teammate for Terrakion as it can break down Water, Ground, and Fairy teams easily (add targets?). In return, Terrakion is able to devastate Steel and Dark teams for Nihilego. Another good teammate can be found in Tyranitar; its ability to set Sand allows Terrakion to be able to swtich into attacks significantly easier (the notion of swapping in Terrakion is kinda wrong, but if you have mons whose attacks you normally die to, but live because sand, you could add these. However, Ttar is a good team mate for Terrakion for diff reasons entirely; Wallbreaking Slowbro, taking on Scarf Latis, wearing down Celes/Lando-T Flying cores are some of them). In addition, Tyranitar is able to stop Swift Swim users like Barraskewda and Kingdra from outspeeding Terrakion. Barbaracle is a good teammate for Terrakion as it can deal with Sand Rush Excadrill and Choice Scarf Weavile after Shell Smash (only after webs, though you can add that this can break x,y,z, letting Terrakion clean x,y,z types late-game, or something similar. Its not faster than Scarf Terrakion even at +2, its meant to kill stuff). Rhyperior is a decent teammate for Terrakion, as it not only provides an immunity to Electric-type attacks but it can also gang up on Steel-type cores with Terrakion. (Name targets, so its easier to visualize on what you mean)

- Choice Band Terrakion changes its role from a revenge killer to a powerful wallbreaker, but that role is typically covered better by other Rock-types. (mention the walls it breaks [those that it can't with scarf, anyway])
- A Swords Dance set with Air Balloon is also viable as it can freely set up on foes that are choice-locked into Ground-type moves. However, this set is not recommended because it is almost useless outside of the Ground matchup. (This last sentence isn't true, it also helps in Steel mu [Exca locked into Eq], Flying mu [vs. Lando/Dnite], to name some. Also not freely spamming Eq vs Rock helps rock)

*notable, add in Nihi Barb line that they wear down Steel Birbs and Lando-T, respectively, as it leads to a Terrak sweep against Flying, too
