    The problem with that is that is directly conflicts with Milotic's best ability. Competitive basically asks for an Intimidate attack drop for a Special Attack boost, so that's out for a potential attack set. Cute Charm and Marvel Scale are both defensive abilities, and anything with Z-splash shouldn't be taking damage, focusing more on dishing it out quickly so as not to waste a Z-move and the +3 boost on something that's not going to last. Additionally, Milotic has an attack stat of 60 and a speed stat of 81. While you might have shock factor, you still won't be outspeeding much, or doing much damage. In all honesty, any Z-splash is a shock factor, so you don't have to rely on a pokemon that doesn't even have a good Attack stat to take advantage of.

    It's better to use Z-splash on something that can sweep an entire team with the boost or at least take down enough before going down to make using a Z-move a worthwhile tradeoff. The only pokemon that Z-Splash is decent on are Mimikyu (90 attack, 96 speed, Disguise ability makes setup free, ghost/fairy makes 3 immunities for switch-ins, has amazing coverage with just Play Rough and Shadow Claw, has Will-o-wisp and Thunder Wave as options, can sweep by setting up for free and outspeeding/tanking many relevant meta pokemon), Gyarados (125 attack, 81 speed, flying type gives an immunity, Intimidate and Moxie are both good options [Intimidate being a good ability in general, Moxie being total sweeper overkill], has a decent movepool to make use of [EQ, Waterfall, Crunch, etc], can oneshot pretty much anything that's not a tank), and Solgaleo (Better stats than the other two, but is usually banned).

    If only coming up with a team for the BIL wasn't so time consuming.

    Tragic.

    If only there were more Pokemon in the Alolan Dex that would suit my purposes...
     
  6. I know the feel sometimes. I an not too concerned though since I do get sniped but I have backups for my backups, and an overall picture of what my ideal team could look like.

    Of course I'll remember, pch.....

    I'd like to announce an event very soon, but I'm currently having troubles getting formatting to work. It WILL be up by this weekend, however. Look out for that.

    Also pyro, make sure to get on our Discord, lots of things are going to be going down there soon.
