About VGC Helper

So until 2021, I had been using a personal app as tool for building SwSh ladder teams. I’m not a high ranking player at all, but I do enjoy the team-building process and the app I made let me use features not common in our existing tools.


After the BDSP announcement confirming SwSh would stay as the competitive meta for VGC for a while, I decided to polish my app and share it with the public. Hope you find it useful too!
