Breaking from the traditional style of team reports, this piece is a combined effort from Singapore Regionals runner-up Ryan Chiam, and myself, winner of Singapore’s inaugural VGC’16 Premier Challenge. Ryan and I piloted teams which, in essence, functioned identically to each other in our best performances so far, revolving around the same core combining Mega Rayquaza …
