Trick Room setters in VGC 17 are something we’ve heavily explored during this analysis series, but what about Pokémon who thrive under the twisted dimensions? With the Tapus running rampant alonside high speed threats like Kartana & Pheromosa it’s essential, whilst teambuilding, to think of ways to combat these threats. What if we showed you a Trick Room sweeper, lurking in the ocean depths waiting to rise up and unleash it’s potential? Interested? You should be. Introducing Dhelmise!

Pokémon Analysis – Trick Room Setter 7: Porygon2!
Our analysis of Trick Room setters has taken us from the more commonly seen Mimikyu and Oranguru to the more obscure options of Misdreavus, Comfey, Trevenant + Exeggutor and the Slow Trio. However, in our final Trick Room setter analysis, we’ll now turn our attention to THE premier dimension twister of the VGC 17 meta, Porygon2!
Pokémon Analysis – Trick Room Setter 6: Oranguru!
When revealed before the release of Pokémon Sun and Moon, Oranguru became almost the mascot of VGC 17; its signature move Instruct – which allows the targeted Pokémon to use the same move a second time in the same turn – decent bulk, a solid typing and access to Trick Room made it appear that Oranguru was specifically designed for use in the competitive circuit.
