List of Contents
|A tough shield to break|
|Snorlax is amazing at stalling and setting enemies up for follow-ups and combos. Block and Yawn can be used in a variety of offensive and defensive scenarios, which ultimately boils down to the player's skill and imagination.|
|The perfect initiator|
|While weak at the start, once Blastoise reaches level 7, Blastoise's damage output increases drastically. Rapid Spin and Surf are excellent crowd control moves, which shines in big teamfights. Blastoise becomes even deadlier, and the perfect initiator once Hydro Typhoon is learned due its insane damage and huge area of effect.|
|The king of the front lines|
|Crustle's amazing versatility lets it sit at the top spot among Defenders in the current roster. This Pokemon can either split fights up with walls or take the fight to enemies directly with sudden bursts of speed and damage. Its solid damage output from melee range makes enemy teams think twice before engaging in fights and skirmishes.|
|Amazing crowd control|
|Slowbro brings an incredible amount of control in fights and skirmishes. This Pokemon's ability to shut key targets down with Surf, Slowbeam, and Telekenesis makes it a major threat in fights that is difficult to eliminate due to its naturally high durability as a Defender.|
|Power Level||Team Impact||Ease-of-Use||Rank Usage|

Hi! We appreciate your questions.
1. We recommend Muscle Band, Focus Band, Scope Lens, and Buddy Barrier. We based our recommendation around winning team fights in order to secure objectives like Drednaw, Zapdos, and scoring points.
2. We've updated all builds to the current version (184.108.40.206).
3. We try to make builds that are useful in a variety of situations. Niche builds are only viable under very specific conditions or team compositions so you'll seldom ever use them
