Very interesting stats this month.
| 13 | Keldeo | 11.48675% | 81733 | 8.598% | 61302 | 8.001% |
Finally getting the love it really deserves. Not surprised. Ran into so many of these this month, surprised it wasn't higher. Quite honestly, it still should be higher. This thing is so good. We all look at Terrakion as this huge prevalent offensive threat, that every team needs no be able to check. Keldeo, in my opinion, is even better. Especially in rain. All of it's sets are really good too. We all know how good it is scarfed in the rain, but I run a specs one on my weatherless team. With Politoed still sitting pretty up there at #2, it hits so ridiculously hard everytime it gets the opportunity. People switch into their Tentacruel, and expect to be able to wall it. But guess what:
252SpAtk Choice Specs Keldeo Resolution (Neutral) Hydro Pump in Rain vs 252HP/0SpDef Tentacruel (Neutral): 51% - 60% (187 - 221 HP). Guaranteed 2HKO.
Yeah it's a guaranteed 2HKO in rain without hazards. If you haven't tried it you should. Also don't forget about the CM+3 Attacks set, or the SubCM set. Those are still very good, and can catch people off guard. With its very acceptable speed, it can sweep some teams at just +1.
I didn't think I should have to make a speech about how good Keldeo is. People are seeing now how good it is, but I think it should still be higher. I wouldn't be surprised if it actually does become Uber in the future. Although I'd be sad to see My Little Pony go.
22 | Landorus-Therian | 8.67255% | 62606 | 6.586% | 54159 | 7.069% |
25 | Thundurus-Therian | 7.96452% | 64788 | 6.816% | 50982 | 6.654% |
Pretty nice jump for the two Therians left in OU. Especially Landorus-T. Both are very good pokes in this meta. Predicting they will both be top 20 next month. Landorus-T possibly being top 15.
30 | Infernape | 7.18132% | 75695 | 7.963% | 60746 | 7.929% |
I know the conversation has been had about this before, but man this really is a bit too high for Ape. I won't say that it doesn't have a niche in this meta, or that it doesn't have a place on any team. It's just... not that good...
33 | Landorus | 6.93382% | 49763 | 5.235% | 38664 | 5.047% |
Not gonna get in-depth on this one, but seriously. USE IT! Arguably the best late-game sweeper in this meta should be higher.
35 | Celebi | 6.48850% | 52288 | 5.501% | 42857 | 5.594% |
Expecting this to rise as well. It has gone from unseen in the BW/BW2 meta-game to a great Poke very quickly. The Specially Defensive set checks/counters a lot of common threats. Also its Nasty Plot set has great potential right now as well.
39 | Deoxys-Defense | 6.27287% | 54854 | 5.771% | 50248 | 6.559% |
So low for something potentially going Uber. I'll stay reserved on my thoughts on this Suspect Round, though.
52 | Reuniclus | 4.25971% | 40334 | 4.243% | 31530 | 4.115% |
Poor jelly. :(
53 | Haxorus | 3.89987% | 41675 | 4.384% | 31412 | 4.100% |
Boy, that is dangerously close to UU isn't it. There's no way it would ever go UU though, right? RIGHT?!
Praise be to Antar.
