As far as Cress goes, it definitely has a large influence in the metagame. However, I wouldn't go as far as to say that she's a bad influence. It takes some adapting to do, but I believe Cresselia fits in RU comfortably in terms of its overall power level, and certainly not a major restricting force as I initially feared.
My apologies. Since most Galvantula are Scarfed, I must have assumed that Galvantula outspeeds anyway. However, because of the Scarf, Galvantula can outspeed and OHKO Durant anyway, so it technically can revenge kill it. Anyway, because Cresselia (and Durant, for that matter) is still listed as BL2 on the SmogDex, there aren't as many people using her as I would assume. I think it might be easier to assess Cresselia's impact in the metagame if we were to change that, as more users would be aware of their drops. I fear a Cresselia centralized metagame, as what we had with Cofagrigus, but I think we need more people utilizing Cresselia and Durant to fully understand their roles in the new RU.
