Hi, My name is Nox! I’m a longtime Pokémon fan but I’m somewhat new to VGC. I previously played Smogon singles and swapped over to VGC in January. Since then, I’ve been experimenting with a ton of fun strats! I’m active in Wolfe Glick’s subscriber Discord server, and probably my most famous team was one involving Slurpuff and Indeedee-M that Max Gelman used to make Top 16 in the recent online Champions Cup.
Wolfe’s Sub Server recently had our first friendly tournament (we plan to host them biweekly, so maybe join?). After a not-so-great time in the Victory Road Tournament last week, I was able to top cut (going 4-2 in swiss) and eventually made it to the finals before finally losing. Anyways, I’m really happy with this team and so I wanted to share it with some of you!

Welcome to our next installment of Ladder Legends! In this article series we’ll be taking a look at teams used in the higher echelons of the Pokémon Showdown ladder for VGC 2020! As always, whilst we’ll stick as close to the original team’s items and move sets, our featured teams won’t contain the exact EV spreads of the originals; instead, we’ll provide sample spreads so you can copy & paste your way to the top of the ladder and tweak as you go!
Your second Ladder Legend is Akaza Hakuji who reached 1862 on the Showdown ladder using a hard Trick Room team, featuring one of the newest Pokémon able to Gigantamax in competitive play…
Welcome Back to our Player Presser series! Today, we were given the time to chat with a Regional Championship winner, the creator of our Malmö Regional Championships team and friend Daniel Tapp – AKA ProFluffyVGC.

Have you ever felt like playing Pokémon simply to prevent other people from having fun? Do you enjoy essentially flipping a coin every turn to decide whether you win or lose a game?
If the answer is yes to either of these questions you’ll definitely want to try out this classic Cat and… erm… Mushroom combination which is set to take the VGC 20 metagame by storm!
This past weekend I travelled to Malmö via Copenhagen to participate in Malmö’s Regional Championship event for the third time in four years; accompanied by Ayleigh & Helen, I was able to couple this up as a week’s holiday to explore both of these beautiful cities before focusing on the tournament ahead.
With the recent changes to the VGC ruleset, legalising new Pokémon such as Incineroar and Venusaur, I was left unsure of what sort of team I would be bringing to the event and it wouldn’t be until the Wednesday before the tournament that my decision would finally be made.
