Took the liberty to go through your team report video to see the attacks it was meant to survive, for those interested: Cottonee was 252 HP, 100 Defense, 156 Special Defense EVs, Bold Nature with 2 Speed IVs. 252 Atk Talonflame Brave Bird vs. 252 HP / 100+ Def Eviolite Cottonee: (78.9-95.2%) 252 Atk Parental Bond Mega Kangaskhan Double-Edge vs. 252 HP / 100+ Def Eviolite Cottonee: (80.9-96.5%) +2 252 SpA Fairy Aura Xerneas Dazzling Gleam vs. 252 HP / 156 SpD Eviolite Cottonee: (83.6-98.6%) 252 SpA Aerilate Mega Salamence Hyper Voice vs. 252 HP / 156 SpD Eviolite Cottonee: (85.7-102%) And a calc that was mentioned but wasn't put in the video but I think I managed to figure out?: 252 SpA Kyogre-Primal Ice Beam vs. 252 HP / 156 SpD Eviolite Cottonee: (80.2 - 95.2%)

The issue with Cottonee is that it doesn't have Tailwind as of gen 8. If it gets it back it'll be worth looking into, but boosting teams have already had some counters worked around due to Dondozo, meaning you don't have as much support power through stuff like safeguard swagger like you used to.

Strangely enough, even strong Pokémon with downsides can fit this as well. Take Weavile in Gen 8 Ubers. It might have had 100 less base points than most Ubers and was utterly frail, but Dark/Ice STAB at its height meant no popular Pokémon withstood both its STABs and there was no held item gimmick save Zamazenta-Crowned and it outspeeds most legendaries.

I think the overwhelming nature of pokemon can be discouraging for getting into it, but the limited meta makes it easier to generally play with agency. From there, that great expanse of other niche counter options becomes one of the most exciting parts, also just the ability to get the most out of personal favorites. I'd overal prefer an unrealistically great balance, but at the same time, it might actually become super messy when it comes to rock/paper/scissors and generally playing with agency, and it'd make it less special when a strong niche pops up as a wildcard. If it wasn't so limited on average, weaker ones also couldn't deliberately counter as reliably, that's that messy r/p/s agency.

I think everyone loves that one semi-bad or just straight up bad Pokemon that they use sometimes. For me that's either Pikachu or Froslass. Years of playing through games with Ash or Red-inspired teams got me really good at utilizing Light Ball Pikachu as a hyper-aggressive Special Attacker spamming Thunders, Thunderbolts, in the past unique Hidden Powers. I've also used a Focus Sash utility build with Volt Tackle, Fake Out, Knock Off, or Nuzzle. If it can't get outsped after proccing the sash I just suicide bomb for damage with Volt Tackle or remove a valuable held item with Knock Off. I loved pairing an aggressive Thunder spam Pikachu with Primal Kyogre or Politoad in ORAS. Froslass was another one that performed surprisingly well back in ORAS since it threatened Mega-Rayquaza with strong STAB Ice Beams and because of it's speed I could pickup free KOs with Destiny Bond as soon as Froslass had it's sash procced. As you can see I basically abuse the Focus Sash to make bad Pokemon work semi-well.

Shedinja, 1 ATK 1 DEF, the easiest enemy, only has one hp. (I love how megalovania started playing when Wolfey mentioned it)

the eviolite boost is actually larger than the one shown at 9:20 - eviolite grants a boost to the raw stat, not the base stat, which converts to an actually larger base bulk than if the base stats were multiplied as an example, azumarill has a base stat of 50 - a max of 218 at level 100 or 112 at level 50. if huge power doubled the base stat, that would make a base stat of 100 - max of 328 at level 100 or 167 at level 50. but since it doubles the raw stat, that's a maximum 436 at level 100 or 224 at level 50, roughly 149 base attack, almost tripling the base stat as for cottonee itself, its base bulk with eviolite would go from base 60 def 50 spdef to base 100 def 86 spdef

5:53 Strangely? I mean, Gengar is posed as if it stands/walks & is shown on the ground in-games, unlike the anime, where it floats, but Gastly & Haunter float & are lighter to an extreme; It doesn't seem that strange to me why they kept Levitate.

9:20 that's not how Eviolite works. It's really dependent on the set, but I think even uninvested it's a little more than 90/75.

@kennethmassa6682

Yeah, it works off actual stats, not base stats. You need to consider EVs and IVs, nature, and even just the five extra points every stat starts with at level 1. Cottonee's defenses were much higher than what was shown in the video

Did a few calcs. At lv 50, Eviolite Cottonee would have effective base defenses of 100/85 with no investment, and 116/101 assuming max investment.

lbr. its not stats, movepool, typing, or anything of that nature that decides what pokemon fits in your team. its niche while the other factors do play a role, as they help decide a niche, ultimately, if it fills a niche, it can be viable. see Pachirisu and Haunter for examples :) its also how Quagsire (my favorite pokemon of all time) got into Ubers.

Surprised you didn't mention the FEAR. A humble rattatta that would take down any sweeper. Equip Focus Sash, Endeavor, Quick Attack or other priority move. You see the combo here. Take a hit, go down to 1 HP thanks to Focus Sash, Endeavor to bring enemy's HP to 1, Quick Attack for the kill. Granted, there's a number of counters now, so it isn't as busted as it used to be, but it should still be noted that there was a period of time when people FEARed the Rattata.

Man, I knew that galarian slowking will become my signature pokemon, listen to the most hilarious strategy in history wich I called - Red Card for Bad jokes 😂 Well, we start off with the mvp himself, galarian slowking. Item: Red card, most important move : chilly reception. "So what does chilly reception do?" A good question indeed my friends. Chilly reception switches Out the User with a Pokemon of CHOICE and ALSO gets out a snowscape. So slowking is SLOW what a suprise, but it's also bulky. When it Takes a Hit your opponent is forced to switch Out RANDOMLY and now you gain 100% Switch Advantage WITHOUT takink real damage because slowking has a Hidden ability that heals itself by 1 third of it's max HP. You can take even Further Advantage, because If you pair slowking with a fast enteyhazard mon, the passive damage is real. Your opponent loses hp while you recover them, plus you also can make use Out of the free snowscapy from chilly reception, baxcalibur would be an example. I love slowking😂
