  31. [13:09:57] @zeefable: the main premise of the core is that you have two strong dynamax pokemon, one physical and one special, with really solid offensive coverage between the two of them
  32. [13:10:29] @zeefable: they're also both pretty bulky pokemon naturally, so you can invest offensively and still have them stick around

  69. [13:15:15] thewalraingoats!!!: sun REALLY likes to sleep things
  70. [13:15:21] thewalraingoats!!!: and koko just stands in the way of that
  71. [13:15:22] @zeefable: in general you want an electric with a core like this
  72. [13:15:30] @zeefable: because damaging waters can be really difficult otherwise
  73. [13:15:40] Helios of Sun: In that case, we could also consider going back to the thought of Life Orb Steela
  74. [13:15:55] Helios of Sun: Since we have Electric Terrain that can help prevent Sleep
  75. [13:15:56] @yuki ♪: Fairy/Electric gives it a really ideal Fairy/Dragon/Steel core which is so popular in singles too - generally the same sort of defensive backbones exist via typing

  102. [13:18:18] @zeefable: i'd like to avoid grimm if possible btw, there's a common team that uses those three pkmn and I feel like we'd just end up recreating it if we went that route

  106. [13:19:48] @zeefable: i was asked why im not using rotom-h on this team
  107. [13:20:29] @zeefable: the main reason is that celesteela really appreciates active speed control like electroweb, but also I generally want a fairy type that can check urshifu as balances tend to have a problem with it
  108. [13:20:31] @yuki ♪: Rotom-H is nice, but generally Tapu Koko and Regieleki are going to provide extra speed control which is never amiss with it

  118. [13:22:32] %Ika Ika Musume: I am not sure if this is correct as I am no doubles expert, but it also wastes time of key speed control methods such as Trick room

  505. [13:49:57] @zeefable: AmberGoon0: Before you call anything, lets review on what we have to do to actually use the team (like what we start with, ect.)
  506. [13:50:01] @zeefable: ok sure brief summary
  507. [13:50:19] @zeefable: this is a redirection based offensive steelachomp team, which gives us a few different modes
  508. [13:50:46] @zeefable: celesteela is a really strong max into glastrier teams and venusaur teams, i recommend pairing it with incineroar, clefairy, and whichever remaining offensive mon
  509. [13:50:54] @zeefable: this gives it a lot of control and flexibility
  510. [13:51:15] @zeefable: boost it and its partners defense with max steelspike to take physical hits, airstream to outrun thundurus after one speed boost
  511. [13:51:26] @zeefable: meteor beam gives max rockfall, good for hitting the likes of incineroar torkoal and zapdos
  512. [13:51:36] %Katy: !code
  513. yourwelcomethank: with no Dragon Move on Garchomp for Kingdra rain looks tougher. Eleki clef could eweb it but your sacking a mon just to eweb it so thats my concern.
  514. [13:52:06] @zeefable: ok let me finish this summary and i will give an idea for the rain matchup since its a huge concern
  515. [13:52:15] %Katy: oki :)
  516. [13:52:46] @zeefable: garchomp is a unique ground in that it's a fire resist, really fast, and generally more bulky than landorus or mamoswine making it great for setting up swords dances. in VGC its really hard to fit multiple ground resists so an offensive ground is always appreciate
  517. [13:53:01] @zeefable: it synergizes really well with celesteela as the two sort of cover their bad matchups nicely
  518. [13:53:17] @zeefable: both of these guys pair well with redirection and speed control from eleki's electroweb
  519. [13:53:50] @zeefable: incineroar and clefairy are our means of controlling the board. we're using fat shuca berry incin to check the likes of Glastrier and Landorus-T while getting as much bulk out of it as we can
  520. [13:54:19] @zeefable: clefairy runs moonblast to help us better check urshifu, as our other dark resist, incineroar, is obviously weak to its close combat
  521. [13:55:08] @zeefable: regieleki is one of the best special attackers around, its both insanely strong with transistor + magnet (and even max lightning setting electric terrain) and really good at slowing things down with its electroweb, almost guaranteed to go first without any speed modifications
  522. [13:55:42] @zeefable: urshifu cleans up the team, giving us a way to beat up defensive pokemon like porygon2, incineroar, and even more offensive guys like landorus-t. sash makes up for the meh bulk and lets us do this effectively
  523. [13:56:54] #Yellow Paint: (I'll save this summary later to help teamdesc)
  524. [13:57:54] @zeefable: now re: rain, you're going to want to lead eleki + clef into what is mostly likely going to be a politoed + kingdra clicking helping hand max geyser
  525. [13:58:12] @zeefable: we want to setup and endgame where the opponent cannot break our celesteela
  526. [13:58:58] @zeefable: follow me and electroweb gives us a guaranteed speed advantage, we sacrifice clef and bring in celesteela. volt switch and max airstream off the kingdra to bring in the last mon (this should probably be garchomp)
  527. [13:59:12] @zeefable: effectively we want to bait them into hitting the eleki but we're going to preserve it by doing this
  528. [13:59:32] @zeefable: all the while we accumulate stat boosts with our steela to win the endgame as eleki will come back out and create a pin

  996. [14:36:29] @yuki ♪: We have a Torkoal, Trick Room just kinda works well with it
  997. [14:36:35] @yuki ♪: Being able to have Eruption going first off that thing
  998. [14:36:40] @zeefable: having a slow mode to account for people who might try to outspeed fast modes is nice
  999. [14:36:41] Helios of Sun: Offensive Torkoal in Trick Room is very threatening
  1000. [14:36:45] @zeefable: really lets you get the most out of your torkoal
  1001. [14:36:55] @zeefable: and p2 just happens to be a nice check to offensive grounds in addition
  1002. [14:37:50] @zeefable: [14:36:33] Gfazzo: back to the defensive torkoal idea i was thinking we could possibly drop p2 in favor of washtom as it does well into glastrier, landorus, garchomp and metagross
  1003. [14:37:52] @zeefable: not a super big fan of this, its another mon that really wants to eat dynamax when we already have 3 of those
  1004. [14:38:05] @zeefable: and its not like p2 + offensive tork isnt accounting for these already
  1005. [14:38:18] @zeefable: [14:35:42] Megagarchompgood: isn't serene grace better than superluck if we are not using scope lens on togekiss
  1006. [14:38:46] @zeefable: the chance for dazzling gleam crits make togekiss a bit more of an active supporting pokemon. air slash flinches are also not as great when it doesn't outspeed a ton of pokemon
  1007. [14:38:47] @yuki ♪: Super Luck means in pinch situations where maxing Togekiss is a best
  1008. [14:38:53] @yuki ♪: It still has an ability, also
  1009. [14:38:57] @zeefable: yh also totally useless should we ever max it
  1010. [14:39:05] @yuki ♪: There are non-zero situations when you should max Togekiss
  1011. [14:40:00] @zeefable: apron's making some good points in my pms about yawn togekiss
  1012. [14:40:17] @zeefable: im gonna summarize: offensive pokemon bait offensive responses, and yawn togekiss punishes offensive responses
  1013. [14:40:22] @zeefable: i think the logic is fairly sound
  1014. [14:40:36] Helios of Sun: That's a very fair point
  1015. [14:40:45] @yuki ♪: I think you can basically take your pick with it
  1016. [14:41:15] @zeefable: Yellow Paint would you be cool if i put yawn on the paste and mention air slash as like an other option in the writeup?
  1017. [14:41:16] @yuki ♪: Generally I go for Yawn, but Air Slash isn't amiss and I feel in the max situations that crop up, having the second offensive option isn't too horrible
  1018. [14:41:21] Helios of Sun: I think you can go a mixture of any 4 of (( air slash / dazzling gleam / protect / helping hand / follow me / yawn ))
  1019. [14:41:23] #Yellow Paint: sure why not
  1020. [14:41:26] @zeefable: that prob lets us catch both
  1021. [14:41:38] @zeefable: id rather that than put a slash in the paste
  1022. [14:41:43] #Yellow Paint: and yeah toge set is up to opinion anyways
  1023. [14:41:59] #Yellow Paint: yall wanna get that match ready?
  1024. [14:42:10] @zeefable: i think we should do a roomtour instead this time
  1025. [14:42:13] @zeefable: we have a pretty big audience
  1026. [14:42:23] #Yellow Paint: oh true
  1027. [14:42:27] #Yellow Paint: yeah alright
