I had tried charizard, garchomp, tyranitar and several others that have been switched, re-trained and breeded, etc... I found this to be the most successful. Maybe my EV-distribution is poor? My coverage/strategy is lacking? Let me know; much appreciated.

Hello,

Unfortunately I am going to have to lock this thread for not having long enough descriptions. Try and aim for at least three lines of description per Pokemon, potentially going over why you chose that mon, what role it plays, and why you chose that specific set.

Feel free to pm me your descriptions and I will unlock this thread for you.
