    I'd imagine that the first thing that came to your head when you saw this analysis was "what is this guy on about?", and if so, you were clearly curious, otherwise you wouldn't be here (probably). Reactions aside, Furret is an unusual choice for an OU team, but if used correctly it becomes an unexpected threat, seeing as it's one of very few pokémon, if not the only one that can utilize the combination of trick and focus punch effectively. Here's the analysis:

    Lead
    [​IMG]
    Furret @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Keen Eye
    EVs: 4HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature
    - Trick
    - Focus Punch
    - Body Slam/Double Edge
    - Sucker Punch

    Furret's ultimate set. It does this: Tricks a choice scarf on a status move then focus punches. Your choice between Body Slam and Double edge is based around your preference. Body slam has great utility once you've lost your scarf due to Furret's middling speed, while Double edge is a solid stab. Sucker punch lets you finish off weakened opponents, providing prioroty.

    You didn't follow the corrrect formatting for analyses, but even if you did, this set has no chance OF seriously competing in OU.

    This set honestly requires so much perfect opportunities that its not worth slapping on an ou team.
