Research Week attempts to investigate Pokemon who have potential, be it in stats, movepool, or supporting their team, to serve as an innovative choice in today's metagame. These are Pokemon that, for the most part, remain relatively untested. Elevator Music and I have selected 3 Pokemon we feel, with help from everyone else, could see use as they fill a particular niche. Perhaps the title is a bit of a misnomer; in fact, this installment (and perhaps future ones) of Research Week will continue as long as the discussion does, and that's where you all come in.
Please don't hesitate to post if you have insight into any of the Pokemon here. On the flip side of that coin, post intelligently.
A few things to keep in mind:
- Be open minded.
- Test, test, test!
- Think of how these Pokemon work well, what movesets to use, what teams to use them on, important teammates, and good EV spreads.
- If you have a Pokemon to suggest for Research Week, don't post here; PM Elevator Music and myself.
