There was a Midseason Showdown in Vancouver last weekend. I made the trek from the island alone so I could chase those Championship Points.
I made the initial draft of this team about a month ago after the last PC. The starting point was Specs Koko and Helping Hand Arcanine which would allow me to OHKO Garchomp with Dazzling Gleam. I added Porygon2 and Gigalith as a Trick Room mode and tried a myriad of Pokemon in the last two slots.
In the weeks leading up to the MSS I noticed Rapha was using a similar team to what I was testing. We decided to collaborate to create the teams we would go on to take 2nd and T8. In this report I’d be listing my version of the team and Rapha will share his thoughts and where his team differed from mine.
The first two major VGC 2017 tournaments have finished over the last two weeks. I’ll be looking at the top 10 Pokemon from these events that I didn’t write about in the last post. The list is not sorted in order of importance.
I noticed that our viewership has spiked since Sun & Moon came out despite a lack of content. I figured I’d write about my initial thoughts on the format and my opinions on some of the Pokemon in the format.
Today we’re going to look at some of the information found from the Sun & Moon demo and how it will affect VGC 2017. There will be some spoilers for the new Pokemon, so don’t read on if you want to remain unspoiled.
