    Liepard

    [Overview]

    <p>Liepard is one cool cat. With base 106 Speed and a typing that helps it beat all of the Psychic-types in NU, Liepard is a very underrated Pokemon. Liepard's access to moves such as Nasty Plot, Sucker Punch, and Snarl make it very versatile. Also, thanks to Limber, it is immune to paralysis. Unfortunately, this is where the party ends for Liepard: due to its very mediocre base 88 offenses, Liepard is overshadowed by other Dark-type Pokemon such as Absol, Cacturne, and Mightyena. Liepard is also very frail with 68 / 50 / 50 defenses; as such, Liepard finds it hard to take many of the powerful attacks found in the NU tier. Nevertheless, Liepard occupies the niche of being the second fastest Dark-type Pokemon in NU. With its high Speed stat and decent movepool, Liepard isn't as helpless as one might think.</p>

    [SET]
    name: Nasty Plot
    move 1: Nasty Plot
    move 2: Snarl / Hidden Power Dark
    move 3: Encore
    move 4: Hidden Power Fighting / Grass Knot
    item: Life Orb
    nature: Timid
    ability: Limber
    evs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>With a limited but usable special movepool and a decent Special Attack stat, Liepard makes great use of Nasty Plot. Liepard gets a move exclusive to a select few Pokemon: Snarl, a STAB attack that lowers the opponent's Special Attack with every use. Hidden Power Dark can be used instead of Snarl for a slight power boost; however, it has no secondary effect. Encore is a key move in this set, as it locks Pokemon into non-damaging moves, giving Liepard time to set up. The last moveslot depends on Liepard's other moves. Hidden Power Fighting has good coverage alongside Liepard's Dark-type STAB, allowing Liepard to nail Steel and Dark-type Pokemon. On the other hand, if one opts to use Hidden Power Dark, Grass Knot should be used as Liepard doesn't have any other viable options. While inferior to Liepard's other options, Grass Knot nails bulky Water- and Ground-type Pokemon such as Quagsire.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>The EVs are very straightforward: full investment in Special Attack and Speed maximizes Liepard's offensive potential. An EV spread of 40 HP / 252 SpA / 216 Spe can be used to outpace base 101 Pokemon such as Simisage, Simisear, and Simipour. Liepard's base 106 Speed allows it to outspeed Rapidash, a Pokemon that can OHKO Liepard with Megahorn or Flare Blitz. For this reason, Timid is used over Modest. Life Orb is used to increase Liepard's offensive power, making Limber the ability of choice over Unburden.</p>

    <p>Liepard is a Pokemon that needs support to work properly. Partners that check Steel- and Fighting-type Pokemon are crucial to its success. Combusken is an ideal partner, as its typing allows it to take on Steel-type Pokemon. In return, Liepard can switch into Psychic-type attacks that give Combusken trouble. Swellow, Braviary, and Driflim can take care of Fighting-type Pokemon thanks to their Flying typing, making them ideal partners. As with any set-up Pokemon, partners that can lay entry hazards are also ideal. Garbordor can set up both Spikes and Toxic Spikes, and it has great defensive synergy with Liepard. Regirock and Golem can both set up Stealth Rock, though they multiply an already existing Fighting-type weakness.</p>

    [SET]
    name: Fake Out Support
    move 1: Fake Out
    move 2: Encore
    move 3: Sucker Punch
    move 4: Return / Thunder Wave
    item: Life Orb
    nature: Jolly
    ability: Limber
    evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>This set may look like a gimmick at first glance, but it plays a crucial role in supporting Liepard's teammates. Fake Out is the crux of this set as it breaks Focus Sash and Sturdy as well as rendering a Pokemon useless for the turn. From there, Liepard has plenty of other moves to use. Encore renders defensive Pokemon useless, giving Liepard teammates a chance to switch in and wreak havoc. Encore also can lock a Pokemon into an undesirable attack, making switching in easier. Sucker Punch is not only STAB, but also a priority attack Liepard can use to deal damage to faster opponents. The last moveslot is up to preference. Return has good neutral coverage with Sucker Punch, allowing Liepard to attack Dark- and Fighting-type Pokemon for neutral damage. Thunder Wave can be used to cripple other Pokemon, increasing Liepard's ability to support its team.

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>Like the Nasty Plot set, the EVs on this set are standard. Maximum Attack is used to boost the damage from Sucker Punch and Return while maximum Speed takes advantage of Liepard's base high base stat. A Jolly nature allows Liepard to shut down even more Pokemon, such as SubSplit Haunter, with Encore. Another viable attack that Liepard can use is Night Slash, as it is more reliable than Sucker Punch and Liepard is fast enough to forgo priority. Night Slash, however, has less power than Sucker Punch, so it might not be as desirable. Because Liepard is using a Life Orb to increase its offensive power, Limber is again used over Unburden.</p>

    <p>As this variant of Liepard is meant to support its teammates with Encore and Fake Out, Pokemon that benefit from Encore are useful. Fire-type Pokemon such as Combusken and Simisear make great teammates: they can set up Swords Dance and Nasty Plot respectively and can take care of Steel-type Pokemon. Fighting-type Pokemon such as Bulk Up Gurdurr and Throh also work, as they too take care of Steel-type Pokemon. Garbordor can use both Spikes and Toxic Spikes, which soften opposing Pokemon and make it easier to KO them with Fake Out or Sucker Punch. Garbordor's entry hazards also support Liepard's offensive partners, making it easier for them to sweep.</p>

    [Other Options]

    <p>Liepard has other viable moves it can utilize. A full support set with Toxic, Fake Tears, and Taunt can be used, though this is performed better by Murkrow thanks to Roost and its ability, Prankster. A weather support set using Rain Dance or Sunny Day is useable, though there are better weather supporters in the tier. Yawn can be used to force switches, which is useful if entry hazards are present. Hone Claws can be used in a physical sweeping set, though Liepard's defenses and mediocre Attack make it hard for the move to be effective. At first glance, a Choice set appears viable thanks to Liepard high Speed stat; however, due to Liepard's poor movepool, it is not as effective in practice as in theory.</p>

    [Checks and Counters]

    <p>Liepard is far from a top tier threat; as such, countering it isn't too hard to accomplish. Fighting-type Pokemon such as Sawk and Gurdurr easily absorb any of Liepard's attacks and proceed to OHKO with Close Combat in Sawk's case or Drain Punch in Gurdurr's. Steel-type Pokemon, such as Metang, Bastiodon, and Probopass, make great counters to Liepard; however, the latter two Pokemon need to watch out for Hidden Power Fighting. Afterward, they can set up Stealth Rock or attack Liepard directly. Pokemon faster than Liepard, such as Swellow, Tauros and Cinccino, can OHKO Liepard before it can attack, but they must be wary of a well-timed Sucker Punch. Finally, any Pokemon that are bulky enough to tank an attack from Liepard, such as Regirock and Lickilicky, make decent checks.</p>

    [Dream World]

    <p>Liepard's Dream World ability, Prankster, is a blessing. While Prankster won't make Liepard a top tier threat, it will allow Liepard to abuse its decent support movepool and will grant priority to Nasty Plot. As such, Prankster should be used over Limber once it is released.</p>

    [Overview]

    <p>Liepard is one cool cat; with base 106 Speed and a typing which helps it beat all of the Psychic-type Pokemon in the tier, Liepard is a very underrated Pokemon in the NU metagame. Liepard also has access to moves such as Nasty Plot, Sucker Punch and Snarl, which makes it a very versatile Pokemon. Also, thanks to Limber, it is immune to paralysis, increasing its value. However, this is where the party ends for Liepard; with very mediocre base 88 offenses, other Dark-type Pokemon, such as Absol, Cacturne, and even Mightyena,(comma) have better offensive stats than Liepard. Liepard is also very frail; with 68 / 50 / 50 defenses, Liepard finds it hard to take many of the powerful attacks that roam the NU tier. Nevertheless, Liepard does have the niche of being the second fastest Dark-type Pokemon in NU, and with a decent movepool, Liepard isn't as helpless as one thought might think.</p>

    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>With a limited but usable special movepool, Liepard makes great use out of Nasty Plot; it . After a Nasty Plot, Liepard hits 550 Special Attack, making it somewhat useful after a boost. Liepard also gets a move exclusive to a select few Pokemon: Snarl. With Snarl, Liepard gains a STAB attack that can lower its opponent's Special Attack with every use, which makes it useful. Hidden Power Dark can be used though, as it has more power than Snarl and allows , as well as allowing Liepard to keep perfect IVs. Encore is a key move in this set, as it can lock Pokemon into non-supporting(hyphen) moves, giving Liepard time to set up. The last moveslot is up to what Liepard uses in the second; Hidden Power Fighting gets good coverage along with Liepard Dark-type STAB, allowing it to nail Steel and Dark-type Pokemon that resist Liepard's STAB. However, if one decides to opt for Hidden Power Dark, Grass Knot should be used, as Liepard doesn't have any other viable options. It does have use, however, as it can nail bulky Water and Ground-type Pokemon such as Quagsire.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>The EVs are very straightforward; Special Attack is maxed out to take advantage of the Nasty Plot boosts, while Speed is maximized as well to utilize its base 106 Speed. An EV spread of 40 HP / 252 SpA / 216 Spe can be used to outpace base 101 Pokemon, allowing Liepard to outspeed the elemental monkeys. However, Liepard's base 106 Speed allows it to outpace Pokemon such as Rapidash, which is crucial as Rapidash can OHKO Liepard with Megahorn or Flare Blitz; as such, Timid is used over Modest, as this also means that these Pokemon can outpace Liepard. Life Orb is used to increase Liepard's offensive power, meaning that using making Limber is the ability of choice, as Liepard won't be able to utilize Unburden as much.</p>

    <p>Liepard is a Pokemon that needs support to work properly; partners that can help check Steel and Fighting-type Pokemon are crucial to its success. Combusken is an idea partner, as its typing allows it to can take care of Steel-type Pokemon, while Liepard can switch into Psychic-type attacks that give Combusken trouble. Swellow, Braviary, and Driflim can take care of Fighting-type Pokemon thanks to their Flying typing, also making which makes them ideal partners. As with any set-up Pokemon, partners that can set up entry hazards are also ideal. Garbordor can set up both Spikes and Toxic Spikes, and it also has great defensive synergy with Liepard. Regirock and Golem can both set up Stealth Rock, though it will stack up a Fighting-type weakness.</p>

It can also lock a Pokemon into an undesirable attack, which also makes switching in easier. Sucker Punch is not only STAB, but it is another priority attack Liepard can use, allowing it to attack faster opponents as well as dealing damage to weakened Pokemon. The last moveslot is one of preference; Return has good neutral coverage with Sucker Punch, allowing Liepard to attack Dark-(hyphen) and Fighting-type Pokemon for neutral damage. Thunder Wave, however, can be used to cripple other Pokemon, making Liepard an even better team supporter.

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>Like the Nasty Plot set, the EVs are standard;(semi) maximum Attack is used so that Liepard can do some damage with Sucker Punch and Return, while Speed is maxed out so Liepard can take advantage of its base 106 Speed. Using a Jolly nature allows Liepard to shut down even more Pokemon with Encore, such as SubSplit Haunter. Since Because Liepard is using a Life Orb to increase offensive power, Limber is used again over Unburden, as it won't be able to abuse it while holding a Life Orb. Another viable attack that Liepard can use is Night Slash, as it is more reliable than Sucker Punch, and Liepard is fast enough to forgo Sucker Punch priority. Night Slash, however, has less power than Sucker Punch, so it may not be desirable.</p>

    <p>Since As this variant of Liepard is meant to support its teammates with Encore and Fake Out, Pokemon that benefit from Encore are useful. Fire-type Pokemon such as Combusken, or Simisear make great teammates, as they can set up Swords Dance and Nasty Plot respectively, and both can take care of Steel-type Pokemon. Fighting-type Pokemon such as Bulk Up Gurdurr and Throh also work, as they too can take care of Steel-type Pokemon.

Steel-type Pokemon also make great counters to Liepard; Metang, as well as Probobass and Bastiodon (as long as Liepard doesn't use Hidden Power Fighting),(comma) can all tank any attack, and then proceed to attack Liepard or set up entry hazards. Pokemon faster than Liepard, such as Swellow, Tauros and Cinccino can OHKO Liepard before it can attack, though all three must be wary of a well-timed Sucker Punch. Finally, any Pokemon that is bulky enough to tank an attack from Liepard, such as Regirock and Lickilicky, make decent checks, as Liepard can't get past these Pokemon.</p>

    [Dream World]

    <p>Liepard receives Prankster from the Dream World, and this will be a blessing for Liepard. While it won't make it a top tier threat, Prankster allows Liepard to abuse its decent support movepool, as well as getting a priority Nasty Plot. As such, when released, it should be used over Limber.</p>

    For some reason the diff program is malfunctioning, so I cannot provide you with a record of the changes I made. Let's just say they were... extensive.
    • I'm going to suggest you stop using the semicolon. I do not think I found a single instance of correct usage in the entire analysis.
    • Try to pare your writing down to the essentials. Many of your nonessential clauses were fluff and did not contribute to the meaning of the sentence.
    • If you are editing in GP suggestions manually, double-check your work. There were numerous typos and spacing errors in the analysis. (Admittedly, these could have been the error of a GP team member. I did not check.)
    • Restrict your use of "can" to situations involving possibility. (e.g. "Rapidash OHKOes Liepard with Flare Blitz." This is a fact, not a possibility. You should not use "can" in this situation.)

    *Looks at 1st analysis*

    O.o, conflicting advice is conflicting

    In all seriousness, I started writing on Smogon without Semi-colons, so I'm good with that

    And about the spacing issue, my computer durps up, and it keeps making these weird spacing errors everytime I manually add a GP check, idk if it's my fault or the computer's

    Anywho, this is done, thanks for looking it over
