[OVERVIEW]
Throat Spray Accelgor is a sweeper that can create momentum by attacking and setting up on the same turn. The combination of Bug Buzz + Throat Spray is not only great at securing cleaning situations end-game, but it can also force crucial damage on checks like Charizard and Gigalith so that other sweepers can pick up where it left off.

[SET]
name: Throat Spray
move 1: Bug Buzz
move 2: Focus Blast
move 3: Energy Ball
move 4: Sludge Bomb / Mud Shot
item: Throat Spray
ability: Unburden
nature: Modest
evs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]
Focus Blast hits Steel- and Rock-types like Aggron, Togedemaru, Gigalith, and Regirock. Energy Ball rounds out Accelgor’s coverage as a means to hit Jellicent and Quagsire, as well as OHKO Sandaconda at +1. Sludge Bomb allows Accelgor to revenge kill Ribombee, and it is also meant to force significant damage on Charizard. Instead of chipping Charizard, though, Mud Shot could work to force damage on Doublade, Garbodor, and Neutralizing Gas Weezing. Doublade and Ribombee are some of the best sweepers to pair with Accelgor when opting for Sludge Bomb, as they can muster past checks like Charizard and Gigalith after Accelgor breaks them down. Rock-type sweepers like Lycanroc and Caracosta offer good synergy as they threaten Flying-types for Accelgor, and they rely on it to deal with defensive Water- and Grass-types as well as faster threats like Whimsicott. +1 Bug Buzz cannot usually get past walls like Weezing and Garbodor, but the damage it does is significant enough for physical sweepers like Silvally formes and Scrafty to clean thereafter. Physical sweepers return the favor by forcing out special walls like Gigalith and Audino.

[OVERVIEW]
Throat Spray Accelgor works because it attacks and sets up on the same turn. It already is pretty fast without the Unburden boost, so Bug Buzz is great at revenge killing worn-down threats and vulnerable walls like Eldegoss and Quagsire. This combo is not only great at securing cleaning situations end-game, but it can also force crucial damage versus its checks like Charizard and Gigalith so that other sweepers can pick up where it left off. That said, Accelgor won’t usually be able to get past these two on its own. Its coverage is also isn’t perfect, so it will often be unable to sweep past Doublade, Galarian Articuno, Centiskorch, and Poison-types. Accelgor’s frailty also comes up versus priority users and Pokemon it’s unable to OHKO, meaning it can be dispatched pretty easily if the opponent has an opportunity to attack it.

This is getting merged with the "main" set, which is the Spikes setting one, and that already has an overview. Considering this is technically a subset, a couple of sentences explaining how this set works is necessary, but it doesn't need the length of a full overview, so you should shorten this only to the most important parts.

Sludge Bomb allows Accelgor to revenge kill Ribombee, and it is also meant to force significant damage on Charizard. Instead of chipping Charizard, though, Mud Shot could work to force damage on Doublade and Garbodor (also mention NGas Weezing here) instead. Doublade and Ribombee are some of the best sweepers to pair with when opting for Sludge Bomb, as they can muster past checks like Charizard and Gigalith after Accelgor breaks them down. Rock-type sweepers like Lycanroc and Caracosta offer good synergy as they threaten Flying-types for Accelgor, whereas they rely on it to deal with Water- and Grass-types (mention that Carracosta like Ribombee removed since it fails to outspeed it at +2). +1 Bug Buzz cannot usually get past walls like Weezing and Garbodor, but the damage it does is significant enough for physical sweepers like Silvally formes and Scrafty to clean thereafter (this is true but you should mention how well they synergize with Accelgor in other ways, such as forcing Gigalith and Audino out).

implemented, thanks! I made the "overview" just two sentences that could probs work fine as a starter to the set details, if you think that's appropriate. Ready for QC 2

Ribombee isn't a great example, both Lycanroc and Carracosta almost always carry a form of priority that deals heavy damage or outright KOes. Whimsicott is fine, though.

qc 2/2, my id number is 400292 :)
