Pokémon Scarlet & Violet — Team Reports for VGC 2023

The most successful teams are not just six good Pokémon thrown out together… There is a big teambuilding process behind them! Why a team achieves the top spots will often depend on innovative ideas and very subtle details that provide the difference between an average team and a real meta call.

You can find all our team reports written by their very own creators compiled in this page! If you obtain a high place in a big tournament and want to share your experience and knowledge with the wide community, send us a DM over on Twitter!

The following are some VGC teams that have achieved great results in important tournaments or were created by very accomplished players. You can use them in the Ranked Battles ladder or to battle your friends!
