Changes: -Numel received Stealth Rock and Curse among other moves from the BW2 move tutors.
-Increased popularity of Foongus and other Grass-types seems to give it an easier time as well.
-It doesn't have the Special Defense to validate a Curse Sleep Talk set, especially with a crippling 4x weakness to Water-type attacks and a vulnerability to Knock Off.
-Increased popularity of Dratini and Axew allows for more Steel types in the metagame, meaning Numel can set up Stealth Rock and Toxic or even Stockpile with greater ease.
Worth a Revamp: Yes. The revamp should focus primarily on a defensive set. Other than that, the Stockpile set should be updated to suggest either Stockpile or Curse depending on the team's playstyle. Stealth Rock obviously is important enough to validate such an update to a defensive set.
Changes: -Oddish sits as a notable sun sweeper, and sun as a whole got very few, if any, buffs at all
-Foongus now sits as the premier defensive Grass / Poison type
-Defensively struggles to be justified over Lileep who now has Giga Drain, Shroomish, and the aforementioned Foongus
Worth a Revamp: No. Oddish will continue to be used as a self sufficient sun sweeper or one that relies on such a style of team, and with the changes BW2 brought, it can't really hope to fulfill other roles.
Changes: -Omanyte's offensive set (Shell Smash) didn't really get anything new. There's some legality stuff with Icy Wind but no one uses that.
-Omanyte's defensive set got nothing.
-Move tutors were bland for Omanyte as he gets them in HGSS
-Increased popularity of Grass-types
Worth a Revamp: No. The on-site sets and spreads are solid imo, meaning there is no need for an update.
Changes: -Pawniard is one of the few Pokemon from Gen V that already had SR as an Egg move, so little changes there, especially since it's 4x weak to Fighting-type attacks.
-Still, defensive sets with Knock Off could be viable, especially with a possible new niche brought on by Dual Chop wrecking Dragon-types hard.
Worth a Revamp: Actually, yes. The on-site analysis was written at a time when Pawniard was frankly considered to be a completely different caliber of Pokemon. An update would serve well, even if it is as simple as removing the Choice Scarf set or figuring out a better spread for the first set. For example, Life Orb is the recommended item but it's not necessarily a necessity. Fighting-types such as Mienfoo are also much more common now.
Changes: -Most of Petilil's changes are very redundant. Heal Bell when it has Aromatherapy, the release of Leaf Guard when it has Chlorophyll.
-Outclassed by Chikorita, Shroomish, tons of other stuff defensively- all which are more common now
Worth a Revamp: Not unless sun stall gets suddenly popular
Changes: -Here's another Pokemon where all of its changes are not even really changes at all. It already has Stealth Rock and Earthquake, along with Toxic and Knock Off for a defensive set with the occasional Ice Shard. Nothing new and viable exists.
-We do have Phanpy's Dream World ability now (Sand Veil). This should be changed to the preferred ability instead of Pickup as Oran Berry has pretty much fallen out of favor.
Worth a Revamp: No. I will be fixing the ability thing with the approval of you guys, though.
Changes: -I got all the boring Pokemon. It did get Drill Run, if that matters, along with Giga Drain.
-Addition of Spikes SR Leech Seed Ferroseed is also very bad for this guy
-More Fighting-type dominance is good for this guy, except that it still doesn't have recovery aside from Pain Split. Shelmet is more dominant nowadays.
Worth a Revamp: No. Once its Dream World ability gets released, then people can mess around with that, but right now its only niche is spinning and SRing which it can't do very well. I think the current analysis makes this clear enough.
Changes: -Salac Berry + Torrent seems cool I guess if you can beat Croagunk, will test
-Typically runs a more defensive set nowadays
-Perhaps even Covet could see use here to handle Knock Off or something? IDK
-Increase in usage of Lileep, Foongus, and even Shroomish gives more reason to use Ice-type moves after Gligar ban
Worth a Revamp: Yes. The on-site spread is too offensive, meaning Piplup is not capable of putting up SR like even twice in a match. A bulkier set should be done, along with perhaps Sub Salac or whatever I decide.
changes: -Literally nothing apart from some legality fixes that are pointless, such as Heat Wave + Flame Body.
Worth a Revamp: No. The on-site analysis does a good enough job already.
Changes: -choice Scarf now a much more viable set
-Tons of coverage moves, such as Electroweb, Zen Headbutt, and other outclassed stuff
-Wonder Room lol
Worth a Revamp: Not a full one, but we need a Choice Scarf set in the analysis. It needs to specify why you use it (beat Double Rush etc) along with include Trick.
