Old concept actually. Defense Tiers have been out for a few months (see sig)... I just hope that this system is easier to understand this time around.
However this is still a bit difficult to use, any ideas to exploit this in the OU metagame? Like, say, the following attaks for (some poke in your team): fit very well your team to deal the most damage to the standard pokes.
If we take this seriously we may give an important step in the pro-game.
Hmm... in v0.3 I'll be sure to explain this better...
1. Calculate the SkarmPoints or BlissPoints of your pokemon and its attack.
2. Calculate how much it does to the standard Skarm or Standard Blissey.
3. Every pokemon that has that value will be OHKOed.
4. Every pokemon with 2x that value will be 2-hit KOed.
Example: 252 Modest [FONT=monospace]Glaceon has [/FONT]151 BlissPoints of Sp. Atk. That means it deals 151 * 95 * 1.5 == 21517.5 == 21.5% damage to Blissey with Ice Beam, and 27% damage to standard Blissey with blizzard.
I now look at the chart. Every pokemon with a 21 BlissCents or less has a chance to be OHKOed by Ice Beam. Below 43 BlissCents have a chance to be 2-hit KOed by Ice Beam. Hmm... doesn't seem like too many things are useful here.
For blizzard, I can generate 27 and below and 54 and below respectively. Whats this? 252/252 Calm Dusknoir and Porygon2 is at 54 BlissCents? That means that max/max Dusknoir is 2-hit KOed by Glaceon. Ditto with Porygon2 (who is a pretty decent wall).
I can multiply that by 1.5 again for specs, and see that Glaceon hits pretty high in this ladder. ~41 BlissCents worth of damage for Specs blizzard. Meaning... standard Bliss at 82% health is 2-hit KOed by Specs Glaceon Blizzard.
Who is at 82 BlissCents of Sp. Def? Well... max/max +Nature Cresselia for one. (damn, thats some power)
For those who are pessimists instead of optimists... you multiply by .85 to get the minimum damage. This gives ~35 BlissCents for Blizzard, and ~70 BlissCents for the guarenteed 2-hit KO.
Interesting note: Max/Max Articuno is like 69 BlissCents, meaning it is 2-hit KOed by Glaceon Blizzard.
