    First impressions:

    It looks like defensive Pokemon such as Munchlax, Bronzor, and Duskull are really starting to gain popularity especially Duskull rising 9 spots. Not to mention Hippopotas at 22 and Shroomish at 32.

    Croagunk seems to have had a big drop, I guess that's because it's most common set (the priority one) doesn't hit hard enough to take down all the defensive Pokemon that seem to be rising.

    Doduo sky rocketed (>50 places)

    Spheal being used more than Totodile. I know it's cute, but that doesn't mean it's good competitively (I'm not saying it's really bad, it can be useful to hailstall, I just think that Toto can do much better)

    Also, I don't get why Trapinch is higher than Cubone. Cubone mainly outclasses it on TR teams besides arena trap and quick attack.

    Krabby needs to be used more. It can just destroy teams with a simple agility and very good physical bulk, not to mention if it can get and SD, it's pretty much gg.

    Thank you Doug for the stats!

    Good to see the rise in usage, I'll whip up an updated OU list and some extra stats (change/diversity stats) when I get a chance. Looks like LC is drifting towards... stall? And becoming less centralised too, which is good to see. Maybe LC's past centralisation has had more to do with the small playerbase than the metagame itself.

    I highly doubt it - Missy's usage was ridiculous and lots of players wouldn't have changed that.

    Zigzagoon and the most powerful reliable priority in LC has dropped to 6 uses... gotta fix that :) I'm also surprised with all this "stall" that we don't see more Wynaut to take advantage of their in general weaker attacks.

    Thanks for the Stats, and, i see Gligar and Munchlax frequently, i have a Munchlax in my team, and three Gligar's Counters. Gligar is not a trouble for me.

    The last set of stats lacked missy, and were noticeably more centralised than May. Maybe players are still adjusting and changing teams, but the missyless metagame diversified with an increase of battles, which is a good sign.

    My bad, I wasn't really active in LC the last time stats were posted :\ Now that I look back, it does look that way.

    | 14 | Phanpy | 77 | 2.09 |

    Hey maybe I should play this more. Seems really interesting.

    Ghost and Fighting centralization has dropped a LOT. Going from like #1+2 to #5+6 is very interesting.

    More people are using Duskull: about damn time.

    Substitute Gligar sets aren't being used? really? possibly the best pokemon to use sub with not that missy is gone.

    With Wynaut support, Double Dance Krabby OHKOs the entire metagame, it is seriously that easy to set up.

    remember when croagunk was #1? And Cranidos was top 5? Good times, good times...
    Elekid at #13? Seriously? It's not the electivire of Little Cup people.
    I honetly expected dratini to be higher, but I guess thats cause bronzor's at #4. Of course, I'm a noob who runs the mixed 4 attack set and pwns bronzor with fire blast. :)

    Leadour at #21...needs more hype. Quite badass.

    1 | Snover |
    | 2 | Meowth |
    | 3 | Hippopotas |
    | 4 | Kabuto |
    | 5 | Bronzor |

    It also shits on 4/5 of the top leads, and 2HKOes Hippo, who usually prioritizes steath rock over killing.

    EDIT: Lead Pineco actually seems pretty interesting. Rapid Spin, Spikes, Stealth Rock, Big Bite. Fake Out does crap. LeaDour Fire Blast...

    lol Eevee is 16, I would have never seen that coming.

    The lead stats confuse me. I don't understand how Piplup managed to beat Phanpy, considering how reliable Phanpy is. My only guess is because Piplup can actually damage Bronzor and Hippopotas. Also, Machop is rather low on the lead list. I guess Machop is more valued by players as a Scarfer than a lead (although I'd rather use Mankey because of U-turn and higher Speed). Also, Snover kicked Kabuto out as #1 Lead, GK won't be happy.

    Totodile had a significant drop in usage. Magby and Doduo really jumped in usage. I wouldn't expect to see Magby so high, but with Houndour, Bronzor and Snover being so common, it kinda makes sense. It can beat Dour's SP with Mach Punch. Doduo is just Doduo, maybe all the hail makes people more wary about using Orb Taillow. Also, Ekans is being used less than Magikarp ;_;

    Also, a nice chunk of the player base is now also playing on PO, which may effect the stats.

    Uh how does stuff like Abra and Piplup (WTF) become a more popular lead than Phanpy?

    HYU is right, Phanpy is such a reliable lead, and even though Snover is at #1, it beats 7 out of the 10 leads reliably, sets up SR, and in general is cuter than all of the leads above it :(.

    Use it more, people.

    Wow, how long has it been since Gligar WASN'T 1#? (well, when missy was still around it was 2#, but still, it doesn't look like it's falling anytime soon) Eevee seems to have risen a lot. (wasn't it in the 30s or something?)


    42 | Cranidos | 148 | 4.01 |

    Huh? I've been seeing these on the ladder a lot. I would have figured it would be a lot higher.

    I think I'm going to see if "stall" is viable, looking at the stats.

    Three of the best stall-breakers are spots #1, #2, and especially Houndour at #3. Good luck switching into MixDour -__-.
