Only just made normal OU.
Not a surprise.
Yea.. Loom really hates every CaP for a different reason.
Not a surprise.
Wait what? Well Ant can 1KO after a TG (close with just LO), Rev can set up on it under some conditions, Oak stalls it to death (even CM).
This is a bit unexpected as it is decent against some CaPs and a solid OU in normal, but oh well.
Barely in normal OU. Rev/Oak/Ant/Strata setup on ot beat it.
Little odd but Oak can wall for a while as can some Rev. Strata and Ant may be able to revenge under some conditions.
Revenankh all but replaced it.
Walled very badly by Oak, never was that good in normal.
Can't wall the top Physical threat (Rev) and is set up bait for it. Rev also blocks Rapid Spin. Fidgit can encore and set up on it, Oak can wall and 1KO. Many Strata have a fire attack.
yea I can see this one.
Flying attacks give it a hard time? Dunno about this one really. Never used/played against it much so I don't know what it has problems with.
Walled by Rev/Oak/Fidgit. Strata may take its team spot as fast special sweeper.
Rotom H and W
We have Rotom A which includes these.
Rev/Strata/some Fidgit setup bait, Oak can normally cripple. Still I would expect it to scrape OU but evidently not.
Oak walls, Strata revenges, Rev can set up on some sets. Tar is better for Pursuiting/sweeping normally.
Really? I always thought it would do decently in CaP.. Flying is such a good STAB here.
I suppose Strata could avoid a 1KO and revenge it, Rev.. dunno really. I think Yan would win with flinchhax normally.
Oak would be close, nether could switch in. Fidgit could hold it off for a few turns.
And as we have less people we can't try out as many Pokemon as normal or switch teams as much. Therefore will will have more "backround noise" and our meta will appear more centralised.
I agree with the assements. As for the ones you not sure about. I would Gallade really has problem againt Rev. Even though its psychic, its very weak defensivly, so its very vulnerable shadow sneak. I think Ninjask and Yanemega are beaten too badly by fidgit leads. Fidgit can lay down rocks and encore or whirlwind Ninjask. Yanamega cant hypnosis it most of the time, not to mention hypnosis has gotten worse in general, so fidgit can either U-Turn to a Yanemaga counter or just whirlwind the bug away knowing it will take 50 from rocks.
