    Hello to everybody,this is my first article but I tried this nice bird a lot of times on OU battles and he's really cool,not to much for his power instead for the surprise factor,so he can be an original and funny alternative to Togekiss.

    Status:Almost complete,I need approval to finish it.

    Set Comments

    Ok,this man could really looks strange,but exactly for this reason this set can work.
    The optimum coverage as well as the surprise factor let it be useful in OU too.

    With 393 of Special Attack,Air Slash is a good Stab-move resisted only by Steel,Electric and Rock-types,which can be hit hard enough by Heatwave.In this way he has the ability to always OHKO Infernape,Breloom,Roserade with the former move(Machamp takes a damage between 97-100%) and to OHKO Scizor,Forrestress,Lucario and Magnezone with the latter one.
    The other Steel-Types in OU(Jirachi,Metagross,Skarmory and Bronzong,except for Empoleon) are 2OHKOed nearly always in their common sets,especially with Stealth-Rock support(Skarmory in particular takes a damage between 96-100% with no Sp.Def evs).

    Now you have to choose if you prefer to hit hard Dragon-Types(OHKOing Salamence and Flygon with their common set and Dragonite max Hp with SR factor) or enemies like Tyranitar and especially Heatran which are virtually immune to all of your attacks.Remember that the classic ScarTran is always OHKOed by Hidden Power Ground,instead Max Hp/0 Sp.Def Tyranitar under the sandstorm and Max Hp/0 Sp.Def Empoleon takes a maximum damage respectively of 33% and 53%.

    Hidden Power Electric could be run if you're worried about Gyrados and Vaporeon,however it's generally less useful.

    U-Turn finally allow you to scout for Pidgeot counters and it's an escape from Pursuit-User.

    The Modest Nature it's preferred for the important KO-scores mentioned above,and the evs spread give Pidgeot the fantastic number of 281,enough to outspeed Classic MixMence(or DragonDancer MixMence) and neutral Max Speed Lucario,both OKHOed by your attacks(if you chose HP Ice).Or for example Gyrados Adamant nature Max Speed if you opted for Hp Electric.

    For the Defensive aspect,the good base-stats
    surprisingly allow him to alway resist a +2 LifeOrb Extremespeed,so he can switch on a SwordDance,and than kill Lucario,and in on other scenario he can take a ChoiceBanded Bullet Punch from Scizor and OHKO him with Heatwave.

    This is completely outclassed by Crobat, who can use all of these moves with far greater Speed, better typing (including a x4 resist to Bug and Fighting), and greater unpredictability.

    Agreed with Darkmalice; also, the set comments are really rather lacking, and not quite up to Smogon's standards.

    As said by other posters, this set is totally outclassed, the prose is lacking, and the thread does not follow the rules of the Analysis Workshop, thus this is being locked.
