RE: Cottonee: The viability of other sets (weather, Memento) can be discussed on IRC at a later date, but for now it seems that the current analysis (SubSeed) is a fairly pitiful set and is really bad in the current metagame. It's already off-site, so if you need to access the analysis for any reason it's available in the previous link. In the interest of keeping this topic moving (sorry for leaving it for a day!), I'm going to move onto something else.
has an analysis solely because of two relatively rare moves that it carries: Toxic Spikes and Rapid Spin. Outside of that, its got a good defensive typing but atrocious stats all around, save SpD (40 / 40 / 35 / 50 / 100 / 70). Think of it like this: Emboar has a 50% chance to OHKO 252/0 Eviolite Tentacool after SR with Flare Blitz. Is the niche of Toxic Spikes + Rapid Spin deserving of an analysis?
