About me: I'm only alive on pokebase.
My opinion on new move tutors:
Scorching sands - nice ground type move but earthquake/eaarth power is better.
Poltergeist - neat. Has a dumb drawback though.
Dual wingbeat - meh. Brave bird better.
Flip turn - decent.u turn still better
Terrain pulse - interesting. Terrain version of weather ball.
Burning jealousy - nice, but too low bp
Steel roller - nice, interesting but mostly one use.
Misty explosion - suicide move but kinda useless.
Triple axel - neat. Likely good with wide lens.
Grassy glide - ok.
Rising voltage - broken in electric terrain.
Expanding force - neat
Meteor beam - powerful, likely usable with power herb but rock is normally physical.
Lash out - nub
Coaching - kinda useless
Scale shot - nah. Shld hv perfect accuracy and raise speed by 2 then it will be good
Corrosive gas - nub but might be useful.
Skitter smack  - neat

What is fun to do:
1: spectral thiefing your opponents boosts.
2: Make a whole team that has regenerator and spam u-turn.
3: Send out power stall shuckle. Commit war crimes. Beware of sub.
To be continued......

First off, it has a painful weakness to Ice, and since ice is such a prominent offensive typing, you’re going to encounter either HP Ice from an Electric type or Ice Beam from a Water type.

Next off is Garchomp’s design. There is nothing really special or cool about it, it’s just a shark that walks. Frankly, it looks more like something out of a cartoon as opposed to a menacing dragon beast.

It’s not OP. Deal with it. If this is OP to you, whatever.

252 SpA Choice Specs Jolteon Hidden Power Ice vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Garchomp: 400-472 (111.7 - 131.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO

That’s on the switch. And Garchomp switching into Jolteon is way predictable.

Anyway, now my explanation on my favorite pseudo legendaries.

Goodra- with an Assault Vest, it has huge special defense, allowing it to take a usually special Ice/Fairy type hit. It can also run an Expert Belt due to its great coverage. It gets moves like Surf, Power Whip, Dragon Pulse, Flamethrower, and Ice Beam. I like that it breaks the trend of Dragons as far as its design goes, and it’s pretty interesting. Also it’s adorable.

Metagross- surprisingly, it’s an amazing special attacker, even though it’s mostly physical. This means it can catch its opponents off guard. It’s defensive stats allow it to take hits while sweeping. An Assault Vest also works great on it. It’s movepool is nice, with moves like Psychock, Zen Headbutt, Meteor Mash, Bullet Punch, Flash Cannon, Icy Wind, and Thunder Punch. It’s design is super cool, I mean, it’s a... I don’t even know what it is. It’s just awesome.

Tyranitar- it has a great offensive typing, even though it’s bad defensively. It’s main niche is Sand Stream, boosting its special defense. This allows it to take, once again, usually special moves like Water/Grass/Fairy moves. It runs a nasty good Weakness Policy + Dragon Dance set, and it destroys things with moves like Ice Punch, Fire Punch, Thunder Punch, Crunch, Earthquake, and Stone Edge. It reliably sets up Stealth Rock as well. Also, you can’t tell me that it’s design isn’t amazing.

So yup that’s my reasoning.

Because Garchomp sucks and it’s overrated and the other pseudo legendaries are better

Gloomdweller I read your feedback on my Groudon gen 8 moveset, so I changed the EVs, and since it might not learn Smackdown, I added an option for rock slide or stone edge

I checked and guess what. Accelgor can learn guard swap. Super Bulky sweeper

Oh  wait haha that slipped my mind. I had since this strategy with a clefable and u forgot that it was the clefable that used guard swap.

Or was it guard split? Well, u get the idea

I hate to break it to you, but Shuckle never learns Guard Swap. Although that stratigy is genius, it wouldn't work. Unless you have a Pokemon use Guard Swap on Shuckle, switch Shuckle for Blissey, and have the Pokemon use Guard Swap on Blissey...
