I honestly didn't come up with or do the testing for that one; one of the QC members did (Pocket I think, you'd have to ask them).
The idea was that it would allow Dragonite's Subs to always survive un-invested Iron Heads from Jirachi, which allows it to set up on it. Run the calcs for yourself if you're not sure if/how that works; I just put up what I was told since I assumed that the QC members had done the appropriate research when they provided me with that spread.
hey I've gotta ask a question about Dragonite. the ev spread that's on your skeleton does not appear to help for Jirachi so could I have an explanation on the EV spread and nature too because that is confusing me as well.
for reference, 252 HP / 72 Def / 184 Spe and a Jolly nature
Yes, you also need to explain why speed creep isn't included in analyses. Other than that you seem to have the rest of it covered. If you have any more questions as JC about it, he's the one who knows this back and forth.
Hey man, I'd like to do the Speed Creep article you said could be taken over, but I'd like to know exactly what was meant for the article. Is it anything other than a definition of Speed Creep, how to apply, and what uses it? I'd appreciate a response.
