Please read carefully the rules of the thread. However, I will point out some things that I think are really important:

1) The battle is preferred to be done until Sunday, however, if more time is needed an extension could be granted.

2) Bo1 but it is optional to make it at Bo3 or whatever

3) Feel free to put clauses for yourselves (some cores, old gens...)

4) Let me know when do you want to battle and I will post it in this thread.

This was the first time I touched a tier where slaking is good. I saw ariados in lower ranks but then realized the only hazard remover was wartortle and that there was no real tspikes absorber in the tier, so I went with ariados+slaking+dusclops (spinblocking). Lairon helps dealing with all the normal types (guts raticate etc), tropius wincon, and pikachu breaks physical walls.
