Anyone seen a Jolly Flame Charge + Swords Dance Incineroar? I've seen a few OU sets online and I must say I'm fascinated.

I'm personally running bulky 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Sp. Def Adamant Assault Vest with Fake-out, Flare Blitz Knock-off and Drain Punch. Both of these have Intimidate obviously, but I think their roles are much different, the first being a sweeper while the second being a hard-hitting pest.

Incineroar's naturally a slow mon, so I think maximum Speed investment + Jolly nature would let him outpace, what, base 115 Speed after one boost? If he gets strong enough he can get +2 Speed and let him outrun anything.

While taking level 100 into consideration 115 base speed is slightly faster by one point lol. But if this is level 50 then Incineroar would be faster by 1 point without any other speed modifications. This would probably be a better fit in singles than doubles though considering there's the possibility of double focusing and loss of the AV. It could work as a setup sweeper lol

Hey, it's Flutter again! I keep bumping into you. X3

Lv. 50 can outspeed 115 base without any Speed Evs or positive nature with Flame Charge? O.O

Eeyup I've been keeping track of here lol (been watching this thread since I had posted in it before as well lol)
No i meant without any modifiers like a scarf, or speed increasing moves /abilities lol. At max speed for both.. base speed of 60 can outspeed 115 with a +1 boost from flame charge (184) with 115 max speed being at 183.

Is there a guide video how to make a competitive Pokémon team? At least to know the key points of it.

1. What was Shedinja role in the games really? was it a wall, staller, pivot, spin blocker, stallbreaker, ?

2. Does every pokemon type (and cross types) have their own style of play and commonly used roles?
