    Kingambit’s slow speed is also probably due to the whole line being based on chess, and the King is the “slowest” piece in chess, since you’ll rarely be trying to move it.

    I think Garganacl deserves a spot, or an honorable mention at least. It's impossible to kill quickly, has pretty good offensive stats, and ALSO has the sIgnAtuRe aTacK salt cure, which keeps doing damage even after you switch out. It's low speed is low enough for trick room, and on top of salt cure, they decided to let it have iron defense AND body press. This Minecraft golem is very strong and even stronger in trick room, definitely a fitting strength for the saltyest pokemon ever.

    Honestly, it feels like 10 slots just isn’t enough for Scarlet and Violet with the sheer number of great new Pokémon. Aside from
    The honorable mentions, there’s the incredibly solid tank Garganacl, Espathra with Speed Boost shenanigans, Cyclizar and Orthworm with Shed Tail plus recovery, Clodsire with its nice typing and great abilities, Lokix with Tinted Lens and First Impression plus a surprisingly nice typing and movepool, and of course all three starters. It’s genuinely impressive how many good Pokémon we got this time around.

      It's really not worth it. You basically trade an item slot, 15 base power on your main stab, and base 10 attack for being middling-slow instead of slow and getting a bit of special bulk. Just use kingambit, it hits much harder and the speed isn't that important for it.

    Completely agree with Cetitan. It's slowly turning into one of my favorite mons of this gen and definitely one of the most interesting ones. I love how flexible they made it. It's kinda like "swiss army knife" Pokémon.
    It has absolutely pitiful defences, but due the HP pool (and snow/EV/item support, or even Aura Veil support) it can be deceptively tanky despite that. Even more so with Thick Fat.
    Its Speed is nothing to write home about, but at the ame time ain't too slow either and it also got Slush Rush making it honestly fairly terrifying in snow.
    And lastly it's Attack stat is solid... but it also received Sheer Power. ...AND it received Ice-STAB/EQ/Superpower/Play Rough/Heavy Slam and its choice for support moves ain't honestly bad either at all.
    The only thing holding it back is that it's a mon that in order to excell needs support in order to wreck havoc (need a team around it rather than being able to jump in any team) and on top of it it's also really reliant on snow, hinderingit's team options to begin with. But hy, when it snows it definitely hails.
    So.. Yeah... I just... really like Cetitan lol.
    For a mon that looks really simple (and to be fair, it kinda is) it has suprisingly lot of flexibility in its kit.
    As said, definitely one o the more interesting mons of this gen.

      @BestBoy They're not bad, it's just that these are better overall. Kingambit is basically a better houndstone (Last respect might have better damage overall than what supreme overlord provides, but supreme overlord grants way more benefits and is inherently less predictable), Garganacl's typing isn't too great. Skeledirge might be far better than average, but the top tiers are just that great. (I'd guess it'd be within the top 15 range)

    I feel the snow to hail buff will greatly help ice types in general. For along time ice has been the 'glass cannon' type with great offensive interactions but too many weaknesses. The defence buff from snow might help ice types live a little longer and make use of their offensive intersections. I feel the only bitter sweet thing is that abomasnw is the only viable snow setter currently in the game with, Ninetails, Aurorus and vaniluxe not being in the game yet. hopefully when/if the Pokédex is expanded to include Alolan ninetails and other previously 'ok' ice types we can see how great the buff actually makes the type :) which I'm super excited for, ice has been my favourite type forever and I'm excited to see so many ice types already in the list and the potential for a lot more when snowscape is truly tested :)

    Palafin also combos very well with Killowattrel!
    In my playthrough I would lead Palafin in important battles, Flip Turn out to Kilowattrel, and then use Tailwind. Kilowattrel has an ability that boosts the power of its electric type moves when its hit by a wind attack, and its own Tailwind activates this. From there I used its boosted speed and electric power to destroy with Electroball and/or to let it get a quick Volt Switch and bring out a tailwind boosted Palafin

    Nice video! It was cool hearing all your thoughts. I will say; you mentioned Arboliva transforming into a fire type for defensive typings, but there's one type that works perfectly with its abilities, making it a defensive tank: good old electric.
    It's one weakness is ground type, but seed sower halves the power of Earthquake which basically negates its weakness when you consider its special defense. To be perfectly fair, I haven't brought this to any doubles battles where EQ is less common than High Horsepower, but it's still a fun gimmick that makes the olive indestructible in singles.

I've also seen people trigger it alongside a Weakness Policy by targeting it with stuff like their ally Pokemon's Aqua Jet.

    I want to mention that according to others, rage fist's boosts stay even after swithcing out and back in. AND when it dies and is revives*this i know personally because i use him for super simple 6* raids*. And it gets taunt, so you can force enemies to use attacking moves instead of enemies trying to use status moves to debuff it before attacking it. And bulk up for tanking more physical damage and boosting its own damage even more.
    If its not clear, im a undead monkey enthusiast.

    Kowtow is a Japanese derived term for getting on your hands and knees in a subservient bow. Except in Kingambit's case he's pretending to bow so he can just slice things with his sword head. Hence where the dark typing comes in. It's a genius naming scheme.

And it even has coverage moves like play rough and supportive moves like yawn.

    The reason Kingambit signature move is called Kowtow Cleave is because in it's animation it puts it's head against the ground in the process cleaving whatever is in the way. Kowtowing is a form of showing extreme respect by bowing on the ground with your forehead against the ground.

    Imagine Arceus gaining a Divine Forme through a Divine Tablet where the pieces of the tablet can be found like a treasure mission to a new storyline of a new Pokemon game.
    Upon completing the tablet and exposing arceus to it could transform him into divine forme and gaining the Ability Absolute Deity where upon entering the battle field, regardless of status change all stats are neutralized on all the pokemon inside the battlefield while the user ups all its stats to one stage while removing its weakness typing. I mean this is me trying to say they need to at least improve arceus he's just being left out with all these new OP pokemon and their new abilities

    i feel like there is a lot to say about gholdengol’s (the gold cheese stick) ability to block hazard clearing. you can’t rapid spin OR defog because ghost typing and his ability. furthermore, the ONLY move that can clear hazards against it is tidy up from mousehold and he learns good fighting moves to one hit it. pair it with that weird poison rock thing and you got like crazy hazards all game

    Wolfey! I remember you being perplexed at how bad scovillain's signature spicy extract was, but I think it might be worth a second thought, albeit it's still arguably a pretty bad move. Let me explain, if you pair up scovillain with kingambit (or any defiant Pokémon) spicy extract can give them a +4 attack boost! At almost no cost to you!, now pair that up with flamigo in the back and you're cooking with gas. Not to mention Scovillain's typing give it some good versatility, and having a fire tipe that can deal with ground types and water types is always nice
    Hope you find this combo interesting, and I look forward to seeing it being used in the future :)

    Although not related to the video, eviolite primeape will be seeing some play for sure. Primarily because it also gets rage fist, and has a higher speed stat than annihilape with only I believe 10 less attack. And yeah yeah it's HP stat is low, the damage counter on Rage Fist does not get reset upon fainting. Pawmot and Rabsca's revival blessing does *NOT* reset the damage counter when annihalape and primeape get revived
    Meaning: Both Eviolite Primape and Annihilape both can be swapped in and tank as many hits as possible (or use Maushold's bullet seed in doubles) to knock them out. Upon being revived, they both have a 300 base stat attack. So we have a moderately bulky 95 base speed and 105 base attack, both respectable, with a spammable base 300 power move that hits the majority of pokemon for neutral damage. And we ALSO have a bulky base 90 speed and 115 attack pokemon to do the same thing
    Annihilape will be banned at some point. Or revival blessing will be banned. Regardless, if annihilape gets banned the you have primeape eviolite as a backup. Yeah annihilape can run choice scarf and just spam the move, which primeape cannot, but a 95 base speed stat is fast enough that with sticky web and/or string shot/icy wind will make primeape faster than the almost every single pokemon.
    Terrifying pokemon. Everyone flipped about Houndstone, but I said since day 1 that annihilape and eviolite primeape are a THREAT

    I'm slowly getting more and more into competitive pokemon and these videos have been a massive help. A video that I would like to see (unless you already done it if so then don't worry about it) is a video that is like a guide to make a competitive team, like what roles we would need to consider, what pokemon could fill those roles, etc etc. I think it'd be really cool and can't see what other videos the world champ has in store for us.

    Thank you sm for helping to develop the vgc community! These videos are super helpful! I was wondering if you would do more videos where you would take an in depth look into specific new pokemon like you did when swsh came out. Those were the videos (the duraladon one specifically lol) that introduced me to your channel and really got me interested in vgc because I was able to find the specific new pokemon that I wanted to use. I also liked how you would explore the pokemon live in the video because it gave a sense of what traits to look for when choosing a pokemon, what pokemon might complement it on the same team, and just generally made me a better teambuilder. I can't wait to see what you do in the future!
