Just waiting for someone to flag this and link the already asked question that I looked for but couldn’t find -_-

I think Galarian forms go on the original forms movesets for Little Cup specifically, but I'm not sure, because there are separate movesets for fully evolved Galarian forms. I'll flag just in case
Oh okay
It is fine XD, I was waiting for that lol

Probably unconventional, but this set looks fun.

Zigzagoon-Galar @ Flame Orb
Ability: Quick Feet
Level: 5
EVs: 116 Atk / 188 SpD
Careful Nature
- Taunt / Protect
- Trick
- Parting Shot
- Facade / Knock Off

The crux of this set is the Flame Orb, even though Zigzagoon-G doesn't have Guts. When statused, Quick Feet comes into play, making Zigzagoon faster. You can then Trick the Orb away onto another Pokemon, to cripple them and possibly give you an advantage by giving Zigzagoon something good, like an Eviolite. Taunt stops other Taunters, or you can go with Protect for a free turn for the Flame Orb to activate. Parting Shot further cripples an opponent, and allows Zigzagoon to switch to a teammate better suited for offense. Facade is STAB boosted by the burn. Knock Off is also STAB, and while its power will be reduced by the burn, it isn't meant to do that much damage, simply remove annoying items.

Under no circumstances should you perform this strategy on a Pokemon with Guts (Larvitar, Machop, Shinx, Timburr, or Tyrogue), and it's also not a very good idea to use it on defensive Pokemon like Mareanie and Vullaby, as they're more hindered by paralysis.

Wait, so this question isn’t getting flagged and called a dupe?
I didn't see another thread for Zigzagoon-G, so I'm not flagging it.
Phew (filler)
