Ladder Legends #3 – Luxiobro

Welcome to our third installment of Ladder Legends! In this article series we take 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 third Ladder Legend is Luxiobro who reached a more than respectable 1797 rating with an old favourite of the website…

Electrifying Twisted Dimensions! Nox’s Second Place Wolfey Sub Server Tournament squad!

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!
