Hi I took the first team straight from smogon! The second one is something I'm having fun with using a defensive core with golem/shinotic/granbull.

These were the battles i had with my first opponent:
https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7zu-934061179
https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7zu-934055782


The team I used: https://pokepast.es/52d935018908edc9

The purpose of the team is to set up hazards and to poison everything as much as possible. The pkmn listed are extremely bulky are able to take hits from nearly(key word nearly, shiftry is a major threat to this team) everything. Quilladin with eviolite is super physically bulky and will always be able to set up a Leech Seed, which you'd want to do immediately simply because it does not have any reliable recovery. Walrein is a fat wall that's tanking anything special hit, and is set to cripple with toxic and hail, while he benefits from the hail, the opponent takes chip every turn because of it (: Silvally is there for defog support, with signal beam to deal with the tier's common threats: exeggutor and shiftry. After everything being crippled by the hazards and poison, vigoroth comes in and starts setting up. Vigoroth is also a very bulky mon with eviolite, and with slack off, opponents should definitely have problem killing it!
