Victini is a brilliant suicide lead on more offensive teams, almost always securing a KO with Final Gambit. V-Create is its strongest STAB move that provides coverage against Ferrothorn, Gholdengo, Corviknight, Kartana, and Mega Scizor, all while preserving Final Gambit. U-Turn allows Victini to pivot on bad lead matchups into teammates that check its opponent. Final Gambit is its best move that almost always secures an OHKO because of Victini's maximum HP investment, always dealing 404 damage to the opponent. Trick can cripple any defensive wall that Victini cannot OHKO and that would be beneficial for a teammate to set up on, such as Skeledirge and Clodsire. Victini may choose to run Tera Fire to more reliably hit Kingambit, and Corviknight but most of the time, it won't get a chance to Tera as it will use Final Gambit. Offensive Pokemon such as Zamazenta, Kingambit, Dragapult, and Mega Scizor all appreciate Victini securing a KO for them to come in and potentially set up. Similarly, defensive Pokemon such as Great Tusk, and Heatran can appreciate the removal of threats such as Iron Valiant, opposing Great Tusk, Dragapult, and Zamazenta because of Victini's overwhelming power. However, bulkier opponents such as Garchomp, and Clodsire as well as Ghost-types like Dragapult, and Skeledirge can cause a problem for Victini if it decides to preserve its Choice Scarf, and therefore teammates like the aforementioned Zamazenta, Dragapult, and Kingambit as well as Iron Valiant, and Urshifu-RS can all collectively help deal with any undesirable matchups for Victini.

we’re going to reject this:

- victini is not a suicide lead, this is like saying pelliper is an amazing defog user.
- almost everything written here is either vague or extremely banal dex information with little relevance to what victini wants to do and how it functions. i’d like to believe that everyone knows the fire move kills scizor, at least tell me why it’s important.
- there’s a myriad of deeply befuddling grammatical and spelling errors that at best characterize this as rushed out the door before taking even a second pass over.
- tera fire STAB V-Creates on your revenge killer are good, actually.
- you somehow wrote a non-boots victini analysis without a singular mention of removal.
