Herdier and Shedinja! (and others)
Hi, my name is Krebs and I’m a small VGC streamer/content creator on both Twitch and YouTube. Recently, I competed in the March 2022 International Challenge and placed among the top 250, and I’ve been able to climb as far as top 500 on the ranked ladder when I actually have time to sit down and play. I can say honestly that I had a blast with this team, and it was probably the most fun I’ve had playing VGC in a while.
The theory with this team is that if you can eliminate the things that can touch Shedinja, you’ll win automatically. Having a cut and dry win condition might seem like a negative, but a high number of teams in Series 12 might only have two or three Pokemon that can touch shedinja, which you can use to your advantage to force a favorable matchup for Shedinja and Co.
