Shadow Claw doesn't actually help with the purpose of the set. Shrang's set isn't built to sweep in P. forme, it's just built to cycle between formes to change counters and hit the opponent's Pokemon as hard as possible once you're in the optimal forme (although it's perfectly capable of a sweep here and there). Besides, Thunder is doing about good as Shadow Claw in killing Gengar, and it hits Jellicent harder as it is.
So Meloetta is capable of flip flopping back and forth between formes to confuse your opponent, never thought Meloetta would be this unpredictable. It looks really hard thinking of a counter on Shrangs set. Send in a Skarmory when Thunder hits you. Same goes for Jellicent. Magnezone hates Close Combat if she is in Pirouette Forme. Nice set Jesusfreak94^^

Alrighty, my final puns for this POTW:
How the Mel can I counter her?
Get a Melo-ad off of this
Sing, Shrang, Sung(Jesusfreak94's set mentioned)
I am getting mu-sick of this, I may Melo-die from Treble-ing fear beat-cause of this great Harm-ony from the Staff
I'm feeling a bit Ferm-ata to say the least
A Trill ride of excitement
Tri-ad to quit on puns......Makes more
A Minor coincidence
Da Vinci Coda
Wait a Min-uet!
Just pulling your Leg-ato
Some words like Coda and Trill are bit of advanced music words. Fun Fact: Melo-die comes from Klangfarbenmelodie, a weird term associated with music notes. And Staff isn't the kind like a rod, its the lines where music notation is written.

I was thinking that if BH were to use shrang's set, it might be good to have a pun that makes a reference to shuffling between formes that makes the set so effective, something like "Re-Mixie Pixie" or "Everybody do the Shuffle!"
A bit late for me to try and add a moveset idea to this POTW, so instead, I'd like to throw a pun idea out for Meloetta. (Duranteater, since you appear to have the pun market mostly covered, I'd like your opinion on this.)
"In their tongue she is Dovahkiin, Dragonborn."
(Origin of pun idea: Relic Song and Hyper Voice are attacks that rely on the user's voice to damage & Meloetta can learn both of these. Part of the reason Skyrim's a meme factory is the character's access to a form of magic that relies on their voice, with a raw blast of damaging magic, aka "Fus Ro Dah", being the most famous. The Pokemon Attacks and Skyrim spells are similar enough that I'm surprised it took me this long to think of this idea. And given that Relic Song is guaranteed on the form-changing sets and Hyper Voice is likely on the non-form changing sets...)

Your puns were so bad this week bh just googled ****.
