Thank you, X-Act. Since I have some time in my hands, I'm gonna post a "move type frequency" thread for CAP too! Just give me a day or two^^

EDIT: Funny thing. Not only CAP is the only environment where Earth Power gets this sky high usage (10% compared to 3% ca. is huge) but it is only the first time I see Flamethrower more used than Fire Blast. Considering that no CAP has Flamethrower and not Fire Blast, I must say that CAP people are really conservative battlers! :-)

EDIT2: Ah, my comment obviously refers to the October data, since November data are heavily influenced by Colossoil playtest and so do not represent the CAP metagame properly.

i wouldn't say it stopped the secondary, but colossoil definitely seems to have had an impact. i have no explanation for rapid spin's drop in usage, but crunch doubling is hilarious. colossoil is massive.

thanks x-act!

Rapid spins drop is easily explained: If there is no secondary, what is there to spin away? Leech Seed? Not likely.

EDIT: Oh, and then there's Moonlight. In October, Morning sun was (comparitively) popular, and Moonlight was "Other". Now, the roles are switched around.
