Yes, maximum silliness, like that lone disconnected Talonflame. (Talk like a pirate, because there's only one piece in eight that bird is useful.)

Simple.  Run a non-EX/GX attacker.  Evo Mewtwo is a good fallback option.

Mew from fates?

Pretty sure Trap Shell's rebound damage won't work with baby Ninetales.   Bisharp is another Pokemon you could consider. It's dark/metal type, which Ninetales is weak to, so as long as one of your P

Remove Hau at once. It offends my sight.

Sycamore, N, Guzma. 4 of each.

Cut down on Energy. Perferable remove the Dark types.

Alolan Ninetales GX. No reason why that should not be in there. Every reason why it should.

Choice Band.

What's the point of the Choice Band when they can't hurt you? The uber healing decks won't even notice the tiny amount of extra damage.

 

Turn Choice Band into 2x damage and I'll try it.

Yes, they do notice.

The point of CB when they can't hurt you is make Guzma'ing Tapu Lele and so on worthwhile. And if you get Garbotoxin'ed you are going to look very stupid.

A Choice Band on Alolan Ninetales GX is the difference between 1HKOing a GX, or getting hit back by Tapu Bulu GX's Tapu Wilderness GX. The point of Choice Band is to turn a 3HKO into a 2HKO, or a 2HKO into a 1HKO. It also boosts Zoroark's damage to levels that actually get noticed.

And as for the "uber healing decks", I assume you mean Max Potion and Metagross/Lunala GX, and not Wailord.

To take out a 250 HP Pokémon Alolan Ninetales needs 4 hits. There's no way you are ever going to do that. With CB it's a 3HKO, and a 2HKO on Tapu Lele and other support GXs.

And x2 damage?! How OP do you need?! You do realise CB works for G/EXs as well!

Infinite Force x2=Infinite pain.

Finally, on a side note, either 4 Talonflame, or don't bother running it.
