Gen V NU Analysis Index Maintained by DTC and Zebraiken. First index and second 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 to BW2. 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. Because there are so many Pokemon in NU, 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 due to changes from BW2, 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!

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 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.

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.

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).

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.
