ima say that i probably have played the meta the most outa everyone (take that as me boasting or me being a nerd idgaf)
anyway poj lileep cant leech seed so if its soemthing that doesnt care about lileep using recover ferro is cooler :(
just saying i really like this metagame its perfectly balanced, and a huge variety of mons can be used if we try.
Murkrow: the only thing on the list thats even questionable imo. murkrow hits fucking hard i will agree but its not that bad to beat. mixkrow is undeniably its best set (anyone saying subcm is obviously tripping so many balls because it loses to a lot of physical attackers) because of its fucking amazing coverage and ability to outspeed everything. my only problem with it is that it either isnt doing enough or killing itself. with 4mss (drill peck / hp grass / brave bird / sucker punch / heat wave / dark pulse) its gonna get beat by something (rock types/porygon) and if its running lo brave bird (and thus uncounterable) its killing itself in 3 or 4 turns max. subroost is a cool set but honestly its missing a lot of firepower without lo (or you can do what i do with lo subroost but even then its not getting that many sub oppurtunities). scarf is the best scarfer by far and just beats so much shit its not even funny, but even then its missing its lo boost. cm is just not that amzing imo, although its not bad. in general its killing itself too much for me to care if i lose a mon or two. prioritty easily beats it, and it takes a whole toll from sr which has become really common.
drillbur not really broken at all. its not bulky enough to gain a sd and sweep the opponent team without eviolite, and with eviolite its beaten by missy easily. it requiring sand makes it pretty easy to beat because you can just run weather move pokemon and just beat sand easily (honestly rd staryu kicks ass!) its really weak to priority and has a lot of checks which makes me think its not broken enough for a ban.
scraggy: im honestly questioning why its even up here. im seeing a decline in scraggy usage and its mostly because its biggest check is used on nearly 50% of teams (just wait for a few days for the stats). scraggy doesnt have nearly any qualitys of a broken mon besides the fact that its good. it has a good eivolite dd set that gets beat by a variety of mons. it has a lo set which isnt bulky enough to sweep with all the priority around, and a wallbreaker lo set which isnt very fast. it gets checked by so many things, a protect mon can beat it if its spamming hjk and drain punch is too weak to talk about. the only issue i do see with it is that its causing mienfoo usage to be incredibly high, but even then thats not scraggys fault, especially when there are multiple equally good checks in scarfkrow, timburr, croagunk, shelmet, and other things
