Little Cup Research Week! Hello! Welcome to Little Cup Research Week (or LCRW) This is a project aimed to discover the potential of Pokemon in Little Cup that may not see the usage they deserve. Each week 3 Pokemon will be chosen and you have a whole week to discuss the Pokemon selected. Here are a few rules when discussing the Pokemon •Please stay on topic, don't go discussing any pokemon other than the Pokemon selected for the research week. DO NOT use this thread to suggest Pokemon for future research weeks •When discussing the Pokemon feel free to talk about its strengths, weaknesses and its role in the metagame. Make sure you have a reason behind the things you say about a particular Pokemon. This will help people understand what your are trying to say. Saying something like "I didn't like using Vullaby" and giving no reason behind it is unacceptable. So the 3 Pokémon for Week #1 are Lickitung, Vullaby, and Golett! also these rounds will last approximately a week so you have a week to discuss these 3 Pokémon and try them out on the ladder! Lickitung is known primarily as a special wall that has the very useful move Wish, to provide support for itself, and its teammates. Vullaby is a great bulky Pokémon with access to a variety of support moves, and Nasty Plot to attempt a sweep. Golett is probably the least used of the three but it is an interesting Stealth Rock user that packs quite a punch too. What else can we learn about these Pokémon? This project will also have a ladder challenge! Feel free to post a new alt and the Pokémon(s) you are using anyone that reaches in the 2000s will receive "Gold" anyone that reaches 1950 will recieve "Silver" and anyone that reaches 1900 will receive Bronze in the LCRW Hall of Fame. Also your deviation must be 85 or less. I encourage people to post the set they are using when they sign up and after the week is over, it might be fun to post your whole team and how they used the Pokémon(s) in the Research Week. An example sign-up for the ladder challenge could look like this: Alt: Superpowerdude Rank: 1007 Pokémon: Lickitung @ Eviolite Trait: Own Tempo EVs: 196 HP / 76 Def / 236 SDef Bold Nature - Dragon Tail - Wish - Protect - Return That's all that has to be said! Please stick to the rules and enjoy discussing and trying some Pokémon you may of not even thought about testing before.
