I'm looking at Azelf

can probably use an update as well since afaik no one uses Toxic Stall or Mixed Flygon. Sets should probably be Scarf and CB/physical LO with everything else in AC/OO.

So yeah I'll be working on these soonish.
I disagree. First of all, Mixed Flygon is very common against good players and is from my experience the second most common set after Choice Scarf. It's an excellent mixed sweeper, because unlike Dragonite it resists Stealth Rock, and it's also immune to Spikes and Toxic Spikes. Roost is the icing on the cake, making it quite hard to kill for stall. STAB Draco Meteor and STAB Earthquake, with Fire Blast to deal with Skarmory makes it very effective. Toxic stall sucks though, I agree. Set order should probably be:
- Choice Scarf
- Choice Band
- Physical Life Orb
- Screech ? I doubt this set's effectiveness with U-turn abusing Spikes just as well, but I'd have to test it first.
About Azelf, standard Leads Azelf are still common enough. This is PO stats I'm using, but this seems fine because most DPP players play on that server it not wait a long time for each battle:
1 | Focus Sash | 33.90 %
2 | Choice Band | 17.75 %
3 | Colbur Berry | 12.53 %
Standard Lead is still more common than Choice Band. I agree with you though that Choice Scarf should probably be moved to OO. Besides removing Scarf, the analysis looks fine imo.
