The current Pokemon Video Game Championships has made a total overhaul in the competitive meta. The new rules imply that all players joining the VGC Series 6 are no longer allowed to use the top Pokemon from the previous VGC Series 5.
This means a lot of new and old faces are appearing in the new meta. Here are the best Pokemon picks in used in the championships so far:
All the problems Amoongus dealt by Torkoal, Incineroar, and Togekiss are now left behind. This Pokemon is now considered as the best support Pokemon in the current tournament.
Rage Powder and Spore help this Pokemon control the battle and having the Regenerator ability gives it the power to recover its health when it goes down. Amoongus works well in almost any team and is guaranteed to be a top pick for the rest of VGC Series 6.
Incineroar had a lot of time in the spotlight but now that it’s gone, Arcanine is now the best Intimidate user in the tournament. Along with this ability, the Pokemon has exemplary support moves such as Will-O-Wisp and Snarl to help fellow Pokemon stay safe while dishing decent damage. Arcanine can also be utilized as a damage dealer with moves like Wild Charge and Flare Blitz.
This Pokemon is a decent damage dealer thanks to its over the top Special Attack, decent health, and Water/Fairy typing. Its passive ability, Liquid Voice, lets it hit all opponents with Hyper Voice.

Now that Whimsicott is gone, this Pokemon now has no problems rising to the top of the meta. The Pokemon’s Gale Wings ability perfectly sets the Tailwind ability. With this advantage, Talonflame’s partners will receive an immediate speed increase. The Flying/Fire Pokemon can also deal decent damage with moves like Brave Bird and Flare Blitz which makes it a great pick for the tournament.
Dusclops has always been there in the Pokemon meta but lost its fame when Porygon 2 was introduced into the game via the Isle of Armor DLC. Now that Porygon 2 has been banned from the VGC Series 6, Dusclops is now the best Trick Room setter in the tournament. Its natural high health and making it hold Eviolite to make it really slow makes it the perfect Pokemon to utilize Trick Room.
