About

"When its body dries out, it weakens. So, to prevent dehydration, it wraps itself in many layers of thin membrane."

PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Infestation + Signal Beam and Focus Blast 

Infestation offers fast energy generation for Accelgor's slow charge moves, and benefits from STAB. Acid is a below average move for PvP. 

Signal Beam costs slightly less energy than Bug Buzz, which is significant enough due to the lack of a cheap charge move option energy-wise. Focus Blast is the only option available for coverage, and is quite valuable against the meta but demands a lot of energy. Acid Spray costs the least amount of energy, but is still moderately expensive, and doesn't deal much damage if unshielded. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 0 / 5

Accelgor as a mono-Bug Pokemon lacks a quality moveset for PvP, with inefficiencies and high energy costs holding it back significantly. A high ATK stat and poor DEF stat also makes it very squishy for Great League. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Accelgor doesn't have much play for the reasons stated above, despite having the offensive Bug-type coverage that's quite valuable in this league.

Master League: 0 / 5

Bugs generally don't fight dragons and dinosaurs very well.
