And with that, Scizor is the winner! I'll add the submission soon, i'm gonna get all the fancy sprites that everyone else but me is using. For now, Week 7!

Week 7: Rhyperior

:ss/Rhyperior:

Rhyperior @ Leftovers
Ability: Solid Rock
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Stone Edge
- Earthquake
- Stealth Rock
- Toxic

Rhyperior is arguably the best Stealth Rock setter in the current meta, with the ability to cripple other defensive Pokemon with Toxic and EdgeQuake coverage. It gets paired with a wide range of Pokemon, so let's see what it works with best! 5 days to submit this time, wow!
 
:ss/tangrowth: @ Assault Vest
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 244 HP / 16 Def / 248 SpD
Sassy Nature
- Power Whip
- Sludge Bomb
- Knock Off
- Earthquake

Tangrowth is able to take water and grass types attacks that threaten rhyperior out. As well as providing with knock support and a check to keldeo, rotom-wash and primarina the three mons that rhyperior is scared of the most.

lAeVin GLOOOOOOOOOOOOOWBROOOOOO

Slowbro-Galar @ Assault Vest
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 248 HP / 16 SpA / 232 SpD / 12 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Future Sight
- Sludge Bomb
- Flamethrower
- Psyshock

Now you might be wondering how does laevins av globro complement rhyperior? Well you see this absolute masterpiece of a set is the answer to the many many mons that rhyperior finds annoying like most of the uu water types (you know who), things that can't hit rhyp with their stabs but have a move to beat it like scald raikou, grassknot nihi. Av Globro can come in safely on all of these answers take the hit and set up a future sight if you want and regenerate all of the health points back. Although it can take the hits that rhyp does not this pairing is still weak to ground and does not like knock off in the slightest but if you pair it with mons that can deal with those this partnership is the perfect match!

:ss/Gardevoir:


Gardevoir (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Trace
EVs: 240 HP / 252 Def / 16 SpA
IVs: 0 Atk / 0 Spe
- Trick Room
- Teleport
- Psychic
- Dazzling Gleam


Basically the objective of this set is to set Trick Room then gtfo asap. With its immense Attack, Rhyperior poses even more of an offensive threat under Trick Room, being able to move first and nuke up to 4 opponents. Rinse and Repeat.

this rhyperior set is kinda garbage lmao wheres the 16+ attack?? also tox sucks i would rather use a coverage move like heat crash for scizor/amogus or megahorn for tang/zarude
that said i will nom Lanturn
:ss/lanturn:
Lanturn @ Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 36 HP / 196 Def / 16 SpA / 220 SpD / 40 Spe
Calm Nature
- Scald
- Volt Switch
- Toxic
- Protect

ez to see why lanturns works with this, walling rotom h with rhyp is ez, but if they bring rotom wash its not fun at all so this is the counterplay and grass types are fake anyway lol just hit them hard with rhyperior or poop on them with tox lanturn

:ss/Amoonguss:
Amoonguss @ Black Sludge
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 220 Def / 36 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Spore
- Giga Drain
- Sludge Bomb
- Foul Play

While tangrowth may be all the craze now, dont forget about our little mushroom friend. Amoonguss can help rhyperior by dealing with water and grass types for it while rhyperior can scare out fire types that threaten amoonguss. Solid defensive core that has been proven effective in the past.

Congrats to HydreigonTheChild for winning the week! I swear on my life when I get some time away from studying I’ll update the HOF, but for now onto Week 8!


WEEK 8: CB Scizor!


:ss/Scizor:

Scizor @ Choice Band
Ability: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- U-turn
- Bullet Punch
- Knock Off
- Dual Wingbeat


Scizor presents itself as one of the kings of the tier, thanks to it’s powerful Technician boosted Bullet Punch. Through previous weeks, it’s been submitted often with multiple different sets. Choice Band Scizor is currently a tad unexplored, so that’s where you come in! Who will you pair with this king of momentum and revenge killing? 5 days to submit!​
 
:ss/Rotom-Heat:
Rotom-Heat @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 40 SpD / 216 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Overheat
- Volt Switch
- Defog
- Pain Split

Rotom-H is a perfect partner for scizor, making a great momentum core. Rotom-H can deal with steels like celesteela while scizor can deal with threats like nihilego. They both work together to wear down shared checks like bulky waters as well

:ss/rotom-wash: @ Leftovers
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 40 Def / 216 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Volt Switch
- Hydro Pump
- Pain Split
- Will-O-Wisp

Rotom is a great partner for scizor as this form a volt turn core but they also benefit each other with their typing's as rotom-wash helps to handle the many of fire type mons from chandelure, salamence, and rotom-heat, while scizor helps rotom-wash against pokemon like tangrwoth, zarude, and tapu bulu. Scizor can abuse rotom-wash's will-o-wisp to chip foes down to put them into bullet punch range such as thundurus-t, nidoqueen, and primarina.

Reserving my little pony (Keldeo)

:ss/Keldeo:

Keldeo @ Choice Specs
Ability: Justified
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Flip Turn
- Hydro Pump
- Secret Sword
- Icy Wind


Keldeo comes in when Fire-Types do, Hydro Pumping them to death. In turn, Scizor can take care of Grass-Types like Amoongus and Celebi that Keldeo has trouble with.

j'ai donc sorti le grand jeu

:mew:
Mew @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Synchronize
EVs: 248 HP / 156 SpD / 104 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Will-O-Wisp / Toxic
- Ice Beam
- Roost
- Spikes

I'm honestly not entierly sure what kind of spread mew runs these days. This one outspeeds anything up to jolly gyara, notably the max speed 80s breaker and stuff below, like Nidoqueen, rest is dumped in bulk.
Band Scizor appreciates a lot the chip Spikes provide against foes like bulky Clanger, Keldeo, Cobalion and Slowbro-Galar. Mew also greatly helps it against foes like the Rotoms or Mence and can cripple them with status (it can even cripple fire types if you're chosing to run Toxic). In return, band Zor doesn't provide much defensive utility but is pretty good at punishing the likes of Zarude or Krookodile locking themselves in the wrong move, and you can even abuse them with good doubles.
