Delphox’s role on this core is relatively simple: queue up a Hypnosis after Bronzong’s Telekinesis, and then rinse and repeat whenever the opposing team comes close to waking up. Time it properly, and Go Viral can keep the entire opposing team permanently dead to the world as you continuously reapply Aoe Sleep without using a single point of Mp (neither Hypnosis or Telekenisis are Trainer moves). Even beyond this already ridiculous level of utility for one Sync pair, Delphox is also capable of dishing out truly incredible damage through its veritable buffet of damage-boosting Passives both within and without its Grid (as well as the Dauntless Lucky Skill). Stat Leech, Good Night-mare, Hp Advantage, Pokey Trap, and Stationary Target can be combined in many different ways to produce an unbuffed dps that eclipses even that of Charizard itself. On top of all of this, ample Move Gauge Refresh in its Grid along with skills like Badazzle assure that no matter what level of Lessen Sleep your opponents carry, Delphox’s team will be coming out of every battle victoriously scot-free.
An example Sync Grid for a Delphox used with this team can be found here, although as long as you have all 3 Move gauge Refresh Nodes there’s plenty of room for customization depending on your tastes:
Bronzong is the team’s resident tank, although it also plays another, much more important role on this core: spamming Telekinesis. The pair’s ability to make Hypnosis’s Accuracy perfect without sacrificing Mp to buff Delphox allows it to keep the sleep chain going not just through entire stages, but through an entire run of the Villa. As long as Bronzong and Delphox are both alive, they are capable of running through any and every Battle Villa stage that isn’t immune to sleep with Gauge Support. Additionally, the pair sports the bulk and Passives to ensure that even one or two fumbles of Hypnosis’ timing won’t prove fatal as Bronzong’s own Aggravation Zen Headbutt continues to stall out opponents.
The third member of this team will vary, as all Delphox and Bronzong require to sweep is consistent Gauge or Speed boosts. You’ll almost certainly be rotating this slot during your trek through Battle Villa as most pairs capable of this require Mp, but the sheer number of options available should make this a non-issue.These options include Speed boosters like Samurott and Scyther who can significantly reduce Gauge Regen times as well as pairs like Reuniclus and Eevee who can straight up refill it multiple times a game. In general though, anything with the ability to boost the team’s Speed or consistently regenerate Gauge over the course of a game should perform admirably with this core. Another particularly spicy option is to use an extremely quick Striker or offensive Support to increase damage to the point that missing Sleep every once in awhile is irrelevant (Gengar and Alakazam are two excellent examples of these).
Discussion: How to use this Team
This team is designed to do one thing, and to do that thing as efficiently as possible: plow through the Battle Villa. While other powerful cores can make it through 5 or even 10 stages in a day, the power of Go Viral allows skilled players to potentially sweep upwards of 20 with this comp. Delphox’s power, in fact, is such that the ONLY things that can halt its sweep are completely Sleep-immune enemies or the player simply running out of Speed boosting pairs. In game, your biggest priority should be maintaining the permasleep rhythm of Delphox’s Hypnosis (generally achieved by queuing it behind another move or two once the opponent’s Sleep marker starts flashing). This means going for a Telekinesis into Hypnosis on the Stage Boss immediately at the beginning of every match before falling into a rhythm of Fire Spins, Overheats, Zen Headbutts, and Gauge Boosts. As you do this, Stat Leech will continuously grow your damage output while turning opposing pairs into less and less of a threat in case of a mistake being made with Sleep timing. As a final note, you’ll almost certainly want the Dauntless Lucky Skill on Delphox to ensure that your dps rises as opposed to falling over the course of the game, as Bronzong’s Telekinesis makes Troublemaker unnecessary.
