Here is my two cents
Name: Priority King
General Discription. This Pokemon is designed to rule the metagame via priority
Some pokemon are destined to fail. Examples include Rampardos, and Sableye prior to Gen V. However, Sableye shot up from PU in DPPT to UU in BW, simply because of Prankster. If we look at December 2012 usage stas, we see that Scizor and Breloom sit at #1 and 10, respectively. What do they have in common? Technician and acess to STAB priority moves. Concidence?
Questions to be answered
Does priority affect a Pokemon's viability?
Can access to priority overcome other undesirable traits?
Are their certain abilities that benefit priority more than others?
What type(s) make priority viable?
Most threats in the metagame are good because of huge offensive prowess, weather, Typing, or a combination of these. However, two top tier threats stand out among these. Scizor and Breloom, hitting #1 and 10 respectively in December's usage statistics are both most feared for their incredibly powerful priority moves. What if we took many of the traits they have, and create the ultimate priority pokemon. In balanced hackmons, I have been using technician Rampardos with great effect. It destroys teams with powerful priority moves. I think this would be an interesting project to work on, and I hope you guys (and girls) will agree. Thank you for your time.
BTW since The Unlucky one's post is technically invalid, I figured this would be OK. Please do not delete this, I have been waiting since I got into CAP4 too late.
Garchomp in OU? Outrageous!
