it's amazing to me how stale the lead stats really are (or varied, i guess, if you really want to look at it that way) - i mean, you have two pretty common leads and then the whole rest of the metagame. i've seen maybe one electrode lead to every ten, twelve mesprit leads when i play... that's just idek.
not really surprised by any of the usage stats at all, though. vileplume is a boss and needs to be used more tbh, because it trolls a ton of pokemon. i wish people would be more creative like that and find those niche threats that absolutely wreck the meta! also subcm mesprit is still really cool, aside from that i really don't see why people are using it like natgeo said (reliable sr + paralysis, maybe? there are better pokemon to handle fighting-types...). thing is with gorebyss - maybe it's just me, but its pretty hard to get in a smash during rain, especially when playing offensive teams. it sounds godly on paper but ive never really been able to get it to work right (but then again i suck at weather teams too sooo idk lol).
