      You know, I've always though Dusclops could even be worthy of possibly C-Rank, because it can actually be effective on full stall teams as a defensive spinblocker with Curse or RestTalk sets both being effective on heavy stall. I've actually found it capable of being a legitimate threat.
      (I think the real reason why it was E-Rank before is that Dusclops is one of those Pokemon that gets hated on the masses)

      Oh and speaking of Gardevoir, it's becoming the "jack of all trades, master of none" Psychic-type in NU too. It's really outclassed by both Jynx and Musharna down there, and it does not help that its miserable physical bulk detriments it in NU as well, meaning Primeape and Sawk can still get past it anyways (the drops of Scolipede and Mandibuzz do not help its case either).

      Xatu's main problem is that it cannot reliably defeat the two premier hazard setters, Froslass and Rhyperior. The two of them can hit it super effectively with Ice Beam or Rock Blast, respectively, and ultimately prevent it from accomplishing anything. Some other hazard setters, such as Azelf, Cobalion, and Empoleon can also do some nasty things to it.

      That said, Xatu isn't all that bad. While it cannot beat most hazard setters, it still can prevent them from setting up hazards (and also give you the advantage), and it can spread paralysis. It is helpful for teams that have a large scale weakness to Stealth Rock, and it works very well on hail. I think it could also work well with Sableye as a duo to stop hazards.

      Yeah likewise Claydol is often regarded as UU's Sandslash. Although tbh I think even Munchlax is more useful than Sandslash.

      I also really like Rock Polish Golurk in RU, it's pretty awesome.

      ah yes, I sure can. A good set for Hydreigon would be a Life Orb / Dragon Gem set with max Speed and max Special Attack. Modest / Timid depending on what your team's build is (Modest fits Tailwind or Paralysis teams, whilst Timid is good for plain out fastpaced teams).

      The moves you would be running probably should look like this:
      ~ Dark Pulse
      ~ Draco Meteor
      ~ Earth Power / Flamethrower / Surf
      ~ Protect

      It synergizes very well with Fighting types like Hitmontop or Scrafty, since Fake Out can flinch + Fighting moves to hit Steel types that Hydreigon has trouble with killing.

      Hope I helped ^_^

      Srry for late response, anyways, Chandelure being the boss! Also nice job going for Flame Body>Flash Fire, made that P2 cringe (and ensures that it can't hard counter it!)

      Well, you don't have to worry about your 500th post anyways. To be honest, the 1000th post is far more valuable than the 500th.

      Well, first of all, it's not definitely removed yet. Still there for the time being.

      I think the main problem is that a special substitute set is largely better, as it can reasonably run Life Orb, giving it far more power (even in sand, it's more powerful). The special moves also give it better coverage and hence fewer counters. The last thing you want when running a sub set is hard counters.

      Here's a little tip if you want to preserve your 500th post; delete previous posts and make new ones! or make an RMT or something like that, lol.

      Ah, a Solar Power Zard, should've expected it after seeing Lefties. You could also go for FLCL's Power Herb Zard for a surprise Solarbeam that can catch its switch-ins off guard.
