    comfey is 2kute how dare you

    yungoos is about the only one that just looks -bad- to me, don't care for either of bruxish or togedemaru but their designs are decent.
    some of these new abilities seem really strong too- moreso than the usual batch of stuff that gets introduced.

    and for civil war i'd like mystic (second choice instinct).

    I dont know how something as adorable as Mimikyu is allowed to exist. His little disguise falls over how could that not be loved. Bounsweet is kinda sad. Its running for its life and everyone else is just laughing at it.

    OK so why Calm Mind over Tail Glow?

    The +1 SpDef coupled with physdef investment allows Manaphy to beat these Pokemon after 1 Calm Mind:

        Spoiler:- RELEVANT CALCS:


    You get the point. Manaphy has the opportunity to switch in and set up on a lot of mons such as Hippowdon, Lando-T (physdef), Tyranitar, Scizor, Heatran, etc. Once it gets up a Calm Mind it can only be stalled or beaten by Serperior, Electric Types, Volcanion, Unaware Clef, Chansey hax, and it will die if you play it poorly. Fortunately, teams have more than one Pokemon. Scald in the Rain with a chance to burn becomes frustrating, especially because Calm Mind also grants a SpAtt boost. Rain Dance is also frustrating for sand teams, because they won't be able to keep their sand up for long. This set works well with sand against opposing rain teams. 16 Speed outspeeds Adamant Bisharp. Other mons should be able to beat water-resists (Dragon, Grass, Water, Water Absorb) A good option is Ferrothorn because it resists those three types and can live longer under rain with weakened Fire attacks, Tornadus-T can use rain and power through M-Venusaur, Amoonguss, Celebi, and Serperior. If you use sand, Hippo+Drill is good for Electric types such as Manectric.

    This loses to Volcanion 1v1

    - Giga Drain

    Suggesting Amoongus as it is the only partner Manaphy will ever really need. An electric type came in to volt switch out on Manaphy before it boosted? Amoongus eats that for breakfast and comes out healthier than ever switching out of their switch in. Opposing Serperior thinks they can set up? Clear smog them and laugh. Afraid a Mega Bro might set up with you? Swap 4 hp evs to speed, spore, clear smog, giga, and have a giggle m8 as they complain about losing every speed tie. Amoongus also beats the strongest pokemon in the tier, Clefable. And you can never have enough Clefable checks or counters.
    After a long fought battle between votes this mushroom now resides Amoongus and our team. It also grants us a fantastic pivot with the help of its core ability of Regenerator and straight up synergistic value in its key resistances to Manaphys only type weaknesses and ability to chunk Ferro for respectable damage via HP Fire. A literal thorn in this Manaphys side.
    The bulky backbone it can so easily provide to our team with its ability to switch in and out is also super appreciated. ^^; Don't wanna get it too low too early tho as even Regen may not be able to save its butt. It goes without sayin the utility provided by this shroom won't be undervalued especially with the elusive and everfeared Spore in its arsenal.


    Now we move on to the halfway point, the third member!
    What do you think we need at this point?
    Suggest a mon and suggest well.

    Mega Manectric is one of the biggest threats in OU due to it's insane speed tier, it's ability being intimidate, and it's sheer power. Few things can switch into a M-Mane safely, but Manaphy usually takes care of the biggest offensive threats like Sand Rush Excadrill and Tyranitar. M-Mane is also one of the best Volcanion counters, which our Manaphy has nothing to hit it with. Seeing as how we'll have Rain Dance on the team, Thunder over Thunderbolt seems logical, it deals a bunch of damage and has 100% accuracy in rain. Lightning Rod Mane is perfect for expecting Pokemon like Rotom-W or Magnezone to Volt Switch on Manaphy in order to grab that great 1.5x SpAtk boost. Volt Switch is for switching out on Pokemon we can't do much to, or just to finish off a Poke and switch in safely to a different Pokemon. Flamethrower is the usual coverage move on M-Mane that destroys defensive threats like Skarm, Scizor, and Ferrothorn. HP Ice allows M-Mane to take care of most of it's own threats itself like Lando-T, Garchomp, and Gliscor.

    OOh and das it, Manectric is the third member! Uncontested and content to be on the team.
    Bein a solid check to the tiers speedier threats in Talon, Torn, and Lati, all threats to our second member Amoongus, it definitely finds a place on the team! This is partly in thanks to its Flying resistance and speed. It's speed and power is absolutely crucial in immediately layin on offensive pressure. The effectiveness of boltbeam coverage is somethin every1 and their mother is aware of but Flamethrower is the most glistening move in its moveset as it grants it very unique coverage. Easily scaring out Ferro, Zor, and being a bigger threat to bulkier grasses that can take an HP Ice. Volt Switch nabs momentum as well as potentially working very well with Amoongs regen core so it can regen safely if need be. Even with Intimidate and minimal type weaknesses its still vulnerable to being put into priority range due to lack of recovery and bulk so as always, play smart and bring it in safely enough. Plus now that the mega slots been taken, we don't gotta mull over that anymore. Of course, there's more to this mon then just a mega slot! Really now, Erron did a bang up job explainin pretty much everythin!

    Voting for Tornadus-Therian for the CCAT, just because of the Rain dance - Hurricane and the versatility of this pokemon (heat wave, knoff, u turn)

    Tyranitar w/ Choice Scarf
    Ability: Sand Stream
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
    Jolly Nature
    - Stone Edge
    - Pursuit
    - Superpower
    - Crunch

    It goes without saying that the current members lose to the Lati twins. Ttar has been a god for a long time, It can take Dracos and only its many weaknesses keep it from being Uber. This traps the Lati twins (obviously) and also provides a backup plan against other weather teams. This is really standard, Pursuit for trapping, Crunch/Stone Edge for powerful STAB and Superpower for the extra coverage which can revenge kill Bisharp etc. Checks M-Pinsir, Talonflame, ZardY and Thundurus. Very good Revenge Killer in general.

    Considering how standard this is you should all be familiar with common calcs, so I'll omit them here.
