The NU council (and about everyone else in the community) has brought Sceptile to the slate for a suspect test. The suspect will last for two weeks, and, contrary to the previous ladder, we will only be having one ladder to achieve reqs on. The b value for the ladder will be 9 with a COIL requirement of 2800. Sample values with the corresponding statistics: Code: GXE N 100 18 90 25 85 32 80 46 78 58 75 91 72 222 N=9.0/log2(40*GXE/2800) Reason for Sceptile Suspect (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Reason for Sceptile Suspect (open) Reason for Sceptile Suspect (close) Sceptile was deemed a very overwhelming presence in the NU tier because of its ability to outspeed the vast majority of the unboosted metagame in tandem with its insane diversity and power in its offensive sets. The mixed Life Orb set sports a powerful Leaf Storm nuke with the coverage and strength to threaten most Pokemon in the tier, while the Swords Dance set serves as a reliable win condition late game that can work past some of the stops to the Life Orb set. Tagging The Immortal for our second ladder in a month because we're greedy :) /!\ Rules for posting in this thread /!\ No one liners nor uninformed posts; No discussion on other potential suspects; No discussion on the suspect process; You are required to make respectful posts; You are required to read this thread before posting.
