[Checks and Counters]
Thunder Wave needs to get a secondary slash with Psychic on the main set, it's part of the reason Slowbro is so annoying to deal with in OU. Thunder Wave ruins offensive checks like Lati@s, Dragons, Weavile and anything unfortunate enough to switch into that doesn't have any ability that negates its effects. Even Rotom-W doesn't like taking a Thunder Wave because it kills its Speed stat, and can cause it to get haxed down the line. It's too powerful of a move to be placed in AC.
You should look into testing Specs Slowbro in OU. In addition to being a check to Physical Attackers and having Regenerator, it hits like a truck and has Flamethrower to mess up Ferrothorn (but you probably want to use this thing on a rain team so...) Nothing really overshadows it imo, I think you should give it a chance. (I'll try it out on the ladder and get back to you).
small nitpick but
Added Thunder Wave next to Psychic, although I do feel that it is overall an inferior option, I will test it out. Odd as it might seem, it might also be worth slashing next to Slack Off as well.
I am going to try to put this in the nicest way I can: I think the specs set is an incredibly poor set for Slowbro that is just outclassed. The specs set is also directly opposed to the way I play, so I can't really test it out. If QC deems it to a worth while set, I am going to have to give up on this analysis, I don't have the experience or the belief in its usefulness to write about it.
I don't want to hold you up SW. My thoughts on Specs are purely based on conjecture, so if you aren't really comfortable with writing it up, that's cool. There's no overwhelming NEED to have the Specs set up for Slowbro anyway, someone else can write it up if they feel strongly about it.
QC Approved 1/3
The set I see at the moment is fine. Could you add Trick as a slash to the Specs set in OO, and add offensive TR (not necessarily on a TR team) to OO too.
QC Approved 2
According to our new QC rules, you should wait 48 hours after PK Gaming's check, and then write the set up before receiving another approval. However, bearing in mind that the rules only came in after PKGaming's check, it would be good if you could wait for 48 hours after this one before posting your writeup. This should give enough time for any objections to be raised.
Also, I would like someone to look into Specs/OTR at some point, since, apart from anything, slowking currently has those sets and I can't see why Slowbro can't do them either.
