    Choice Scarf Garchomp AKA best scarfer ever

    2) CeleTran is a nickname for an infamous combination of two pokemon that damned near resist every type together. Which two pokemon make up this combo, and which type(s) do they not resist?
    Celebi and Heatran. The only type they don't resist is Rock.

    3) For some reason, my opponent keeps yelling in the chat that "Your Ferro is no match for my SubRise Zone". What is he talking about, and why should I be vary, especially if my main way of taking out steels is by using EarthQuake?
    SubRise Zone = Substitute + Magnet Rise Magnezone. By using Magnet Rise, Magnezone is immune to Ground type moves for a few turns. This gives it a free Substitute because it's only fear is Ground type moves against steel types and Heatran

    4) Why is it in general not the best idea to put a Focus Sash on a pokemon that doesn't lead off in a battle?
    Since entry hazards like Stealth Rock exists.

    5) I have a Lucario with the following moveset:
    SD/CC/ES/BP. Identify the moves, and give the set a fitting nickname.
    Swords Dance/Close Combat/ExtremeSpeed/Bullet Pawnch. Swords Dance Physical sweeper I guess?

    6) My opponent used the move Gravity a few turns past, and is currently using a Mamoswine. Why would it be a bad idea to switch my Bronzong into it, which otherwise would wall its STABs completely?
    Cause Gravity grounds Bronzong and makes him vulnerable to Ground type moves.

    7) Why is it in general not necessarily the best idea to put a lot of Life Orbs as held items on a team with Tyranitar?
    Cause sand storm deals damage to non Steel/Ground/Rock type Pokemon, so the Pokemon loses a LOT of health in one turn.

    Decipher the set names;

    1) NP MixApe -Nasty Plot Mixed Infernape
    2) TrickScarf Rotom-W -Choice Scarf Rotom-Wash with Trick
    3) SDef SD Scizor -Specially Defensive Swords Dance Scizor
    4) CM Rank -Calm Mind Rankurusu/Reuniclus
    5) BU Croak -Bulk Up Toxicroak
    6) SD BP Scor -Swords Dance Baton Pass Gliscor
    7) Air Balloon Tran -Air Balloon Heatran
    8) AgiliGross -Agility Metagross
    9) DD Bulky Gyara -Dragon Dance Bulky Gyarados
    10) MixMence -Mixed Salamence
    11) SD YacheChomp -Swords Dance Yache Berry Garchomp
    12) JelliTaunt -Jellicent with Taunt

    14) QD MSun Volcorona -Quiver Dance + Morning Sun Volcarona
    15) CB Azu -Choice Band Azumarril
    16) SD RP Terra -Swords Dance + Rock Polish Terrakion
    17) SubSplit Gar Substitute + Pain Split Gengar
    18) NP Luke -Nasty Plot Lucario
    19) Specs Lati -Choice Specs Latios (Not Latias since it's inferior when it comes to Choice Specs)
    20) Double Dance Dra -Dragon Dance + Rain Dance Kingdra
    21) RS Starmie -Rapid Spin Starmie
    22) TechniTop -Technician Hitmontop
