Togedemaru is an effective pivot in RU due to its U-turn and solid defensive utility from its typing and Lightning Rod, which allow it to switch into moves such as Volt Switch from Electric-types and Psychic from Indeedee. Additionally, its Speed tier is higher than Indeedee’s and Silvally’s, which is extremely valuable in RU. However, prominent defensive Pokemon such as Steelix take nearly no damage from Togedemaru's attacks, forcing it to use U-turn or be completely walled and lose momentum. Zen Headbutt allows Togedemaru to revenge kill Pokemon such as Virizion and Salazzle from higher HP. Toxic cripples common switch-ins such as Gastrodon and Mudsdale, putting them on a timer for the rest of the game. Nuzzle allows Togedemaru to paralyze Pokemon that it is not necessarily able to revenge kill, such as Drapion and Silvally.

Choice Scarf Togedemaru fits on teams that require a fast pivot as well as an offensive check to Pokemon such as Rotom-C, Braviary, and Indeedee. Wallbreakers such as Bewear and Inteleon make for good partners. Bewear appreciates Togedemaru's ability to pivot into moves such as Brave Bird from Braviary or Psychic from Indeedee, and in turn it is able to support Togedemaru by breaking through pesky defensive Pokemon such as Rhydon and Steelix. Inteleon appreciates Togedemaru's ability to bring it in against bulky Ground-types that it has no trouble breaking through such as Rhydon and Steelix, while Togedemaru is able to pivot into Grass- and Electric-type attacks that Inteleon dislikes. Grass-type Pokemon such as Virizion, Decidueye, and Rotom-C also appreciate Togedemaru's ability to bring them in on bulky Ground-types such as Gastrodon and Rhydon.

Togedemaru functions as an effective pivot in RU due to its access to U-turn and typing, which along with its ability Lightning Rod, allows it to have solid defensive utility, allowing it to switch in to moves such as Volt Switch from Electric-types or Psychic from Indeedee. Additionally, its niche is derived from its speed tier being higher than Indeedee and Silvally, which is extremely valuable in RU. add a mention of how weak it is here, you aren't trying to convince the readers that Togedemaru is S rank, and this intro sounds overly optimistic. also, briefly mention here how it is hard-walled by common Pokemon such as Mudsdale/Lix/Gastro and forced to U-Turn out; you mention it in the 2nd paragraph but it's a big deal and should come up here too. Zen Headbutt allows Togedemaru to hit Pokemon such as Virizion and Salazzle super effectively, therefore being able to revenge kill them from a higher range. Toxic helps to cripple common Togedemaru switchins such as Gastrodon and Mudsdale, putting them on a timer for the rest of the game. Nuzzle is also an option worth considering as it allows Togedemaru to paralyze Pokemon that it is not necessarily able to revenge kill, such as Drapion and Silvally.

Choice Scarf Togedemaru fits on teams that require a fast pivot as well as an offensive check to Pokemon such as Rotom-Mow, Braviary and Indeedee. Pokemon Wallbreakers such as Bewear and Inteleon add the grass types mentioned below here make for good partners. Bewear appreciates Togedemaru's ability to pivot into moves such as Brave Bird from Braviary or Psychic from Indeedee, and in turn, Bewear is able to support Togedemaru as it is able to break through pesky defensive Pokemon such as Rhydon and Steelix that Togedemaru has trouble with. Inteleon partners well with Togedemaru as it appreciates Togedemaru's ability to pivot out on bring it in against bulky Ground-types such as Rhydon and Steelix that it has no trouble breaking through, while Togedemaru is able to pivot into Grass- or Electric-type attacks that Inteleon dislike taking. mention some Grass type Pokemon here, such as Decidueye / Virizion / Rotom-Mow, that appreciate it bringing them in against Gastrodon, Steelix, and Mudsdale.

QC 1/2, good job :blobthumbsup: just add the things mentioned above.

Additionally, its niche is derived from its speed Speed tier being higher than Indeedee's and Silvally's, which is extremely valuable in RU. However, Togedemaru is not without its flaws; some prominent defensive Pokemon in the tier, such as Steelix, take nearly no damage from Togedemaru's attacks, forcing it to U-Turn U-turn or be completely walled and lose momentum.

thanks for the amcheck, implemented most of them. think that "necessarily" is quite important cuz it depends on game state / health bars on opposing side.

if any gp'ers cld look over this, would be great!
