PokéCommunity Daily: Aaron Takes on Showdown

Hello!

Many moons ago, I started a small PC Daily series, in which the community (that's y'all) gave me Pokémon sets both serious and wacky to take on Showdown's OU ladder, with myself then posting my results in the form of a Daily Article!

So this will be the first thread, all I want is for you to post a set of your choice in this thread, I will then be choosing 6 mons to use in the Gen 8 OU Ladder for next week! Then on the Sunday of that week, I'll collate my results and put together the article ready to post, before starting Week 2 after that!

What are you waiting for, give me your worst!

Bulbasaur @ Focus Sash
Ability: Chlorophyll
EV's: 252 Spe, 252 Atk, 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Sleep Powder
- Toxic
- Knock off
- Leech Seed

Believe it not I had some success with this set as my lead in the 4th gen OU ladder and against a friend of mine who is quite good at the meta so I'd be curious to see how it'd fare in 8th gen. Wish Bulby had its own Gigantamax form so it could be viable in Ubers like Pikachu and Eevee apparently are.
