Gen V NU Analysis Index
Maintained by DTC and Zebraiken. Old index, for reference.

READ BEFORE POSTING: How to C&C / Spelling and Grammar Standards / Analysis Formatting Guide

Hi! Now that we're mostly through writing analyses for all NU Pokemon, the next step is to improve the quality of the analyses that we have bringing the sets and content up to date. Some analyses will need major overhauls, with old sets removed, new sets added, and everything rewritten from scratch. Others may not need an update at all (especially on the Low Priority list). Be aware that if it looks like your update is unnecessary, or worse, if it looks like it would be lower quality than what's already on site, then your thread will be locked. We're not going to completely rewrite every analysis just for the hell of it, so only reserve a Pokemon if you're confident that it needs an update and that your update will be more accurate and useful than the original analysis. If you think a Pokemon only needs a minor change rather than a full update, try posting in NU Analyses Discussion or Small Subjective Changes. that wasn't stolen from the RU thread at all, nope

Because there are so many Pokemon in NU (and because some of these analyses were written back in December!), it's really important for us to focus on the most prominent Pokemon in the metagame right now, so please try to reserve only from the High Priority list for the time being! If you think that a Pokemon is in dire need of an update, you're free to make your case in this thread, and we'll take a look at it. We might have missed a few Pokemon, so don't be afraid to point them out please!

The following is a list of joke Pokemon, those who are outperformed in every single way by another Pokemon or are utterly useless for some reason or another. These may not be reserved in the usual manner, as they are not your standard analyses; they are meant to be humorous. In order to reserve a joke Pokemon, you must PM tennisace and Zebraiken with an example of the writing (a short paragraph or two will suffice) and if you are cleared then you're free to write. Don't post in this thread reserving them unless you've done so; unless you like being infracted and having your posts deleted. Also, standard reservation rules apply: if you already have two or three analyses, you may not reserve a joke analysis.

The following list contains NFE Pokemon that currently do not have an analysis. They are NOT open for reservation at this time. If you can provide substantial evidence (non-cherrypicked logs, a description of the set, etc.) that an NFE Pokemon on this list can perform well in the NU metagame, post your findings in this thread and its viability will be discussed. As a general rule of thumb, NFE Pokemon who have evolutions in NU will not be considered for an analysis.

The list below contains every additional set that have been posted for a Pokemon. Before posting a separate set for an analysis already on site, check this thread to see if it has not been posted and rejected before. There is no approval required for posting a new set; simply check to make sure nothing like it has been posted before, then post them and tag them with (Quality Control).

[Completed.] Acrobatics Drifblim - Django Reinhart
[Completed.] SD Lickilicky - shnen
[Completed.] Substitute + Sunny Day Exeggutor - sandshrewz
[Reserved...] SubPunch Electabuzz - Furai


NOTE: You may only reserve up to 2 Pokemon at any time. Only until at least one of those analyses have reached the COMPLETED stage or are near completion (i.e. written and awaiting GP) may you reserve further analyses. However, if you are a badgeholder, you may reserve up to 3 Pokemon at any time.

Attention: Please don't edit your posts in this thread at all. It'll help keep track of who has what and when. Double or even triple post if you have to.

I would like Cryogonal and Musharna. If I can only have one because of that Drifblim set, then just Cryogonal.

@ NatGeo and Django, yes, you may take those 2. Make sure to complete the analyses on time!

Anyways, it looks like everyone reserved everything on the top priority list. That doesn't mean some of the lower priority stuff can't be done:

If you think that a Pokemon is in dire need of an update, you're free to make your case in this thread, and we'll take a look at it. We might have missed a few Pokemon, so don't be afraid to point them out please!

Also, Zebraiken is currently testing Shelmet. Feel free to also test Shelmet, and depending on the results, Shelmet may get an analysis!

I'll take Amooooooooonguss and Ursaring. I had a lot of fun using these two this month and Amoonguss really needs an update because of Charizard and Sawsbuck @_@

This was updated. Also, you only have to post once you've got the skeleton up and once it's done; no need to post here when your analysis has been written. Just for future reference. edit: updated w/ steamdroooool
