I’m confused to why I can’t use my garchomp in ranked for sword and shield, the build for it goes as such: 252evs ATK 252evs SPD 4evs HP it’s also from Alola and I personally bred it myself and it has perfect IVs. Also my move set is Dragon Claw, Stone Edge, Iron Head, and Crunch.

Weird moveset but ok

You can't use Grachomp on any Crown Tundra Pokemon in Series 6. The Series 6 banlist and all new Crown Tundra Pokemon will return to ranked starting November 1.

Edit there is a man in the Battle Tower you need to talk to to give Garcomp the Battle Ready symbol. It will forget all moves and learn the newest 4 level up moves.

Experience and reading the Series 7 ruleset.

You can only use Pokémon captured in the galar region for ranked battles.
