I might as well just jump in on the Staraptor discussion... Anyways, I'm hoping that Staraptor will remain in UU. I feel that when Staraptor was revealed for a re-suspect, many of us probably overreacted about Staraptor's impact in the game (I guess this could be kinda similar to Crawdaunt back in ORAS). Staraptor is pretty scary to go up against, Flying / Normal / Fighting hits almost the entire tier (bar the counters such as Metagross, Doublade, etc.) and due to Reckless, Brave Bird or Double Edge, Staraptor's spammable moves, will take a chunk out of whatever Pokemon you switch in, even if its a neutral (resisted for squishier Pokemon such as Raikou) hit. As previously mentioned, the scarf set has proven itself to be an effective revenge killer while the banded set has shown itself as a scary wallbreaker. Why is Staraptor fine for UU? The main problem I have with Staraptor is how it can never switch in, or at least try not to switch in. Staraptor takes a ton from recoil damage, combined with potential status conditions or entry hazards. Staraptor wants to have as high amount of HP as possible so it can continue to knock things out so it can't really switch in too often, even against resisted Giga Drains from Amoonguss. Staraptor is also quite easily revenge killed, especially the rarer banded set where Staraptor gets outsped by quite a lot, with Pokemon like Counter Alakazam, Scarf Keldeo, Mega Aerodactyl, Bisharp, Scizor, and etc. especially now that hazard removal isn't as common as I have been told. Yes, Staraptor is pretty hard to switch into if you don't have a hard counter (HO teams will struggle a bit) but, the same can be said with Primarina, Crawdaunt, and Kyurem, who are still known to be healthy-ish in UU. So that's my opinion on Staraptor. Feel free to disagree. So I guess another topic to bring up is Mega-Sharpedo is now the bane of my existence, as well as Alakazam but, that's for a different time. Mega Sharpedo is insanely obnoxious to deal with from my experience. Like Staraptor, it is very hard to switch into the only thing is Mega-Sharpedo is not choiced-locked so it is slightly harder to take advantage of while still being fast. The amount of buffs it received I feel push Mega Sharpedo over the top (Prankster nerf, Mega evolution changes, Psychic Fangs). Anyways, not much else I want to say about it besides how annoying it is to face but, so I'd like to see more thoughts on it.
