    Posted from Antar's thread in DST, big shoutout to him for doing this manually.

    Anyways, Mienfoo surprisingly grabbing the #1 spot by a huge amount. I guess this partly has to do with the way stats were collected, as this doesn't include Pokemon that weren't shown in battle. Mienfoo leads a good portion of the time, so this might be a factor.

    Discuss!

    also chinchou #3 YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    aerrow edit: sticky'd!

    Well, like Ray Jay said in a different thread, Staryu is rising in usage. So is Chinchou lol :P

    I'm kind of surprised that Munchlax is being used more now (Well I can't really say that since I'm pretty new to LC, but I thought it was a less common Pokemon). I guess more people are using Munchlax to beat Gastly, who is #2.

    And wow, Ponyta is number 50. I never knew it was that underrated o_O

    Maybe because this metagame just doesn't go in her favor... but she beats many common Pokemon like Ferroseed and Snover, and 18 Atk + 19 Speed is amazing.

    Mienfoo is such a cutie <33

    Anyways, I find it weird Drilbur isn't higher up on the list. It's really one of the most (and one of the only) effective sweepers in this metagame. I guess this list isn't really that surprising though, aside from Mienfoo being at the top anyways. The first "wtf why is this so high" pokemon I can really find on the list is.... Abra? Even that's I guess explainable though lol

    Drilbur >.<

    I agree that it can sweep very effectively, especially with Eviolite (Drain Punch from 76 Atk Adamant Timburr won't even 2HKO :o) and it will sweep if the opponent isn't prepared for it. I don't like it. .-.

    While Scraggy usage is high, the usage of Shelmet and the Scraggy-checking pure Poisons is much lower. I guess people are mostly sticking to Croagunk, Taillow and Mienfoo. This could also be a sign that people are sticking to one Scraggy check per team rather than two.

    Honestly I can't say I'm surprised about much of this at all. Especially with Mienfoo being the default answer to Scraggy these days..

    14% of people still use Houndour? I guess I haven't run into them. Not that it's not good, just surprised.

    Please keep not using Drilbur, I like not having to face it!

    Doduo only at #24 ;_; It's so good though! I guess people would rather have U-turn instead of the extra power.

    what the fuck taillow #7, really?

    I'm surprised to see mienfoo getting over 40% as well, being first doesn't, but by that much?

    Exeggcute's still so low, Harvest Sleep Powder is such a fun set to run.

    At least Drifloon is way up, Acrobatics is just way to good at cleaning up.

    Even with Mienfoo at 40%, it feels weird to me that LC doesn't have something at 50%+ usage. We've always had Gligars and Missies floating around...but not anymore. Not that interesting, but definitely a shift in how you have to build your team. No more huge, central threat that you need a few answers to.

    Scraggy under Chinchou is the big surprise to me here. I think it inarguably shows that Scraggy is most definitely answerable. The question lies in whether or not Mienfoo is exclusively being used as an answer to Scraggy, which I don't think is the case. Either way, thanks!

    Mienfoo isn't just an answer to Scraggy. It's an all-purpose pivot with its bulk and U-turn, a revenge killer with Fake Out, and a stallbreaker with Knock Off. Mienfoo is kind of like Scizor in Gen IV OU.

    That's how metagames work. In fact, that's the definition of a metagame -- a game that is constantly changing to adapt to beat whatever's currently "the best."

    You guys still haven't banned Scraggy yet?

    That is a whole lot of Gastly. Also, hurray for Drifloon and Munchlax!

    A month ago everyone was still crying their eyes out with Scraggy. Now you're all okay with the guy? It does seem to be forcing everyone to use Mienfoo. Not that it's a bad mon without Scraggy, but seriously, 41%?

    Also why is Abra on 1/20 teams.

    Metagame consists of about 5 bulky Fighting-types that destroy scraggy.....I'm not sure if we'd ban him even if we were suspect testing at the moment.

    or maybe it shows how broken scraggy is that people throw in multiple fighting-type checks to stop it?

    I wonder if Taillow's popularity has shot up for the same reason as Fighting-types.
