In all seriousness though, I have been playing a lot today and I've seen an absurd amount of Ninjask on the OU ladder. The shocking thing about it, is that I find that I don't actually have a whole lot to deal with it. Passing a few speed boosts and a swords dance to a Dragonite absolutely wrecks my team. I'm not claiming that my team is as good as most of the more experienced players' teams, especially considering I made it just this morning, but I was still surprised to see that Ninjask seemed to be faring pretty well. The only reason I was able to beat the players that had Ninjask is that they weren't very skilled players using them (someone passed +3 speed, +2 attack, and a sub to a Conkeldurr instead of the Dragonite he had when I had a Techniloom at +4 on the field. Bullet Seeded on the switch and KO'd).
Is there something to this new use of Ninjask? Could it actually be not only viable, but effective in the OU metagame?
