    gonna revamp offensive sd on scizor w/ acrobatics, which is better than the current set

    I'll do shuca jirachi as well, which also needs a set

    Can we put Skarmory's Specially Defensive set before the Physical one? I've had a ton of experience with Skarmory throughout this gen, and can confidently say that its Specially Defensive set is FAR better. Like, it's not really even a contest on the vast majority of teams.

    okay, update:

    @AccidentalGreed will be taking over rain special attacker dragonite

    @alexwolf will be handling acrobatics scizor in his scizor analysis

    I will be revamping the mixed jirachi set making shuca the main option and giving expert belt an ac mention -- the set will also be renamed "mixed lure"

    @BKC plans to do flame charge heatran

    -------------

    We need people to do Trick + Flame Orb Latias to be done by someone. If @Dice does not want to do it himself, I strongly suggest talking to him in the process of doing the analysis.

    Someone experienced with Meloetta can take over Meloetta's write-up, as the writer has not been on in six days. It has two QC approvals. I'm not a fan of the three (four?) paragraphs already written, so I'd start from scratch.

    Offensive Seismitoad is up for grabs, as @Neliel quit and has not been on for ten days.

    I know I'm already doing Sawsbuck, but I have a fair bit of experience with Meloetta. I can take it if no one else wants it.

    The Flame Orb Latias is Trick / Draco Meteor / Psyshock / Roost or Healing Wish, btw.

    Cofagrigus currently lacks an OU analysis. It is up for reservation, with the only condition being that only one set is included, as only one set is actually good -- offensive TR. Trick Room / Nasty Plot / Shadow Ball / HP Fighting with max HP / max SAtk. Other sets will be rejected. This set is good as an offensive spinblocker that's much bulkier than Gengar (58/145/105 defenses are nothing to laugh at) and can sweep.

    We also need somebody to update Gengar's analysis with the following changes:

    remove Substitute + Disable, Substitute + Pain Split, and Offensive 3 Attacks, and replace these sets with a Substitute set as follows:

    move 1: Substitute
    move 2: Shadow Ball
    move 3: Focus Blast
    move 4: Will-o-Wisp / Pain Split / Disable
    item: Black Sludge / Life Orb

    AC Destiny Bond, Thunder, Taunt, and Hidden Power Fire

    I'm confused, that's already onsite under the AcroBat set. I specifically made sure to talk about the advantages of Agility on that set over Substitute. Why add a whole other set? Why not just change it so that Agility is slashed before Substitute?

    I'm sorry, I did not know this. We will have to discuss the placement of Agility. Agility should be slashed before Substitute, in that case.

    Index updated. Also Jukain, separate sets don't need to be reserved.

    Gastrodon is now open, and physically defensive will replace the current main set.

    I got this shit. I'll try to get it up by the end of this weekend. I'm assuming it's a full revamp and not just replacing the current set?

    And just so you know Gary, you should replace the specially defensive set that Gastrodon used to have with a physically defensive one and mention the SpD spread in AC.

    Tangrowth is up for grabs guys. Feel free to use the skeleton that has already been QC approved a few months ago here but keep in mind that the analysis will have to go through QC again.

    EDIT: Don't mind this post i was wrong, blazeVA has completed this analysis.

    I'd like to take Porygon2. I've played around with it a bit since I saw that it was unreserved, and it's a pretty cool niche counter/check to a lot of stuff (especially with Trace). Plus, the Trick Room set has shown promise, especially with ben gay's Trick Room team from a couple months ago.
