    Grass Core


    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Importable (open)

    Bold Nature
    IVs: 0 Atk

    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
    Sassy Nature
    IVs: 0 Spe
    - Leech Seed

    Jolly Nature
    - Wood Hammer
    - Horn Leech
    - Stone Edge
    - Superpower


    This Grass core can wall out a large majority of the team with Mega Venusaur+Ferrothorn, and remove the threat of Mega Gardevoir with Scarf Tapu Bulu. Starting with Mega Venusaur, everything not named Klefki gets 2HKOed or straight up OHKOed by Sludge Bomb, and Klefki without Twave is super easy to 1v1 with Leech Seed+Hidden Power Fire. It can also potentially do some nice damage to Mega Gardevoir after surviving a single Psyshock.

    232 SpA Gardevoir-Mega Psyshock vs. 248 HP / 244+ Def Venusaur-Mega: 194-230 (53.4 - 63.3%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

    0 SpA Venusaur-Mega Sludge Bomb vs. 16 HP / 0 SpD Gardevoir-Mega: 180-212 (64 - 75.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

    For Ferrothorn, it can also wall out a lesser portion of the team, not including Tapu Bulu locked into Superpower, Mega Gardevoir, or Clefable. It can however survive Mega Gardevoir's Psyshock+Focus Blast as it's brought in:

    232 SpA Gardevoir-Mega Psyshock vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Ferrothorn: 61-72 (17.3 - 20.4%) -- possible 7HKO after Leftovers recovery

    232 SpA Gardevoir-Mega Focus Blast vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Ferrothorn: 202-238 (57.3 - 67.6%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery

    It also additionally sets up Spikes to make wearing everything down easier, especially Mega Gardevoir and Klefki.

    For Tapu Bulu, it can serve as an effective revenge killer against the huge threat of Mega Gardevoir, being able to switch in on an expected Focus Blast coming at Ferrothorn, and being able to KO with Wood Hammer(Horn Leech also has a 50% chance to KO from full):

    252 Atk Tapu Bulu Wood Hammer vs. 16 HP / 8 Def Gardevoir-Mega in Grassy Terrain: 414-487 (147.3 - 173.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

    Behind Reflect it needs a small amount of chip damage: 252 Atk Tapu Bulu Wood Hammer vs. 16 HP / 8 Def Gardevoir-Mega in Grassy Terrain through Reflect: 207-243 (73.6 - 86.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Grassy Terrain recovery

    Nothing else can really switch into a Wood Hammer barring Klefki. Sucks that I couldn't submit a Rock core, but I'd need like 4 mons to effectively beat Fairy :/

    - Blue Flare
    - U-turn

    Alakazam @ Focus Sash

    Jirachi @ Leftovers

    Careful Nature
    - Iron Head
    - Thunder Wave
    - U-turn
    - Stealth Rock


    How the core works (open)

    Well, victini can take out faster threats such as tapu koko and tapu bulu with a choice scarf set since it is a straight up OHKO on both tapu's on the team:

    252 Atk Victini V-create vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Tapu Koko: 280-331 (99.6 - 117.7%) -- 93.8% chance to OHKO

    252 Atk Victini V-create vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Tapu Bulu: 434-512 (154.4 - 182.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO

    Victini on the core also threatens to OHKO Mega gardevoir and 2hko clefable so clefable cant switch into it.

    252 Atk Victini V-create vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Gardevoir-Mega: 346-408 (124.9 - 147.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO

    252 Atk Victini V-create vs. 252 HP / 240+ Def Clefable: 217-256 (55 - 64.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

    252 Atk Victini V-create vs. +1 252 HP / 252+ Def Klefki: 252-296 (79.2 - 93%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery

    Azumarill which can switch and can set up belly drum to sweep this core is taken out by sash counter alakazam on the core. Jirachi is used on the core to tank special hits from the team,spreading paralysis with thunder wave,setting up stealth rock and pivoting with uturn to bring victini in safely.
