total boss that needs no introduction, it's the monster from gens 3 and 4 that nobody wants to use in bw because the sleep mechanics are trash. but seriously, with a little tspikes and gothitelle support, this thing gets 1 cm and goes to town on teams. it may be extremely underused, but don't underestimate it, or you will get smashed.
I'm not entirely sure how that set can be considered creative. It is a very good set, as it can hit hard AND wall unless the opponent has a Pokemon with Water Absorb, but that set is actually ON the list of sets. You didn't change a thing. HEY EVERYBODY! PLAGARISM IS NOW CONSIDERED CREATIVE! Kidding, I know its not TECHNICALLY plagarism, but it isn't creative.
Vibrava @ Choice Band OR Choice Scarf
EVs-4 HP/252 Atk/ 252 Spd OR 4HP/ 252 spA 252 spd
Vibrava has always been a sad pokemon, lacking physical STAB dragon type moves, as well as having pretty low stats. While other NFE dragons roamed NU, and even Trapinch! This pokemon's Pre-evolution was better than it! I personally liked Vibrava, however, so I have tried using a set like this in NU. After I draco'd, I switched out while playing my friend, faking an awkward specs set, so when he switched in to Regice after it came back in, I Rock slided. This set's real potential requires a bit of effort to use, but it is a lot like a mixed Flygon Set for use in NU. One more detail, another often choiced dragon in NU with the same typing, Gabite, lacks U-turn and switch advantage.
