Pokemon Unfit for UU Analyses

I know I'm going to sound like a smart Alec saying this but why did Klingklang (and a few others) get an OU analysis but not an UU analysis?
The very reason Klinklang, Carracosta, and Crustle have an OU analysis is because they have the new super moves, Gear Shift and Shell Smash. They were allowed an analysis way before it was known that they weren't very good Pokemon.

Now that it is known that they aren't good Pokemon, there really isn't any reason to give them even an UU analysis. Have you tried using Klinklang in UU? It's absolutely terrible. It gets walled by including, but definitely not limited to, Registeel, Arcanine, Empoleon, Cobalion, Dusclops, Chansey, Zapdos, Rotom-H, Deo-D, and Dusknoir. Now, if and when it gets Wild Charge, then maybe we'll talk. But for now it doesn't, so it won't get an analysis.

As for Carracosta and Crustle, they are probably the worst Shell Smashers other than Magcargo and Torkoal. Not getting Baton Pass is a HUGE deal. And the reason why I don't have Carracosta is because it is almost entirely outclassed by Kabutops. Sure, being able to go mixed sounds like a good argument, but then you gotta realize that if you invest anything in both attack and special attack, you leave Carracosta freaking slow as hell. Even after a Smash, it's still gonna get outsped by a large portion of the tier, and Aqua Jet isn't really going to save it. Crustle I have the same kind of argument.

Now, if you could provide logs to show that Carracosta and Crustle are worth having UU analyses for, then maybe I'll reconsider. But until then, they're staying on the list.

Klinklang though is never getting an UU analysis, I don't give two shits that it has an OU one.
 
Ok...I'm probably gonna get walked on for this one, but I think Ampharos could at least be decent with Trick Room up. It's not that fast (0 speed iv's puts it at 115), it's spATK can be fairly high (choice specs would make it even better). It can be semi-special bulky due to it's good HP stat and slightly above average spDEF. And if none of that is worth it, it can use heal bell and NOT be weak to fighting types like most of the other pokemon that get it.
A few random moves like Power Gem, Cotton Guard, and Dual Screens are also available to it.
Just thought I'd throw some of that out there for Amphy's sake.

Also, will there be RU analyses when everything else settles down?
 
I couldn't find the post, but here's what it is in a summary: "We are not giving Pokemon analyses that could be good in Trick Room. Trick Room does not warrant an analysis as it is unreliable and quite ineffective in the current metagame."

Or something along those lines.

EDIT: Yes, there will be RU analyses available after the first round of suspect testing iirc, which probably won't happen for at least another month since RU isn't top priority right now.
 
Besides, Ampharos is outclassed by Eelektross as an offensive bulky Electric type anyway.

You could make the argument of it's "niche" of being one of two Electric types that can learn Heal Bell (The other being Lanturn), though that is still not enough for UU. Again, Lanturn does the whole Heal Bell thing better with its better typing and defenses.
 
We'll as you can see I'm literally new, sorry for any mistakes. I've been looking in the thread and no one mentioned Serperior. Why is that?
~Serperior has decent bulk of 75/95/95 access to Dual Screen, SubSeed, Scouting Move(Dragon Tail), Support, and offensive 75/75/113 Mix Sweeper with Growth.
~Raticate is the other one. I know he's frail with 60/70 defenses. Look at it offensive he has 81/97 in Atk and Speed. Access to Swords Dance(SD) it can hit really hard with Guts activated. Jolly is the nature reaching Atk261 and S322 with SD reaching Atk522. I've done some calcs with bulky UU pokemon to prove my point. Every calcs used Jolly Raticate SD+Guts just FYI.
~Raticate Atk522 vs. Registeel Hp364/Def438
Facade 37.09-43.68 3-4 to KO (3 Layer of Spikes 2-3 hits to KO)
Iron Head from Registeel can't kill(3 Hit Kill). Dead weight if it lacks Rest and/or Curse
~Raticate Atk522 vs. Tangrowth Hp404/Def383
Facade 75.99-89.85 2 hit KO (SR OHKO(15.38) 3 Layers of Spikes (100))
~Raticate Atk522 vs. Milotic Hp394/Def282 Marvel Scale Active
Facade 70.81-83.25 2 hit KO (3 Layer of Spikes OHKO(58.97))
~Raticate Atk522 vs. Ferroseed Hp292/Def309 Eviolite
Facade 43.49-51.37 2-3 Hit KO (3 Layer of Spikes 2 Hit KO)
~Raticate Atk522 vs. Chansey Hp704/Def119 Eviolite
Facade 93.89-110.51 OHKO(58.97) (SR OHKO, 1 Layer of Spikes OHKO)
~Raticate Atk522 vs. Cradily Hp376/Def322
Facade 48.4-57.18 2-3 Hits to KO (3 Layer of Spikes 2 Hit KO)
U-turn 64.89-76.6 2 Hit KO (3 Layer of Spikes OHKO(15.38))
~Raticate Atk522 vs. Empoleon Hp372/Def302
Facade 52.42-61.56 2-3 Hits to KO (3 Layers of Spikes 2 Hit KO)
Wild Charge 90.32-106.45 OHKO(41.02) (SR OHKO(74.35) 1 Layer of Spikes(100))
~Raticate Atk522 vs. Shaymin Hp404/Def328
Facade 88.61-104.7 OHKO(28.2) (SR OHKO(100) 1 Layer of Spikes(100))
U-turn 59.41-70.3 2 Hit KO (SR+3 Layor of Spikes OHKO (66.66))
~Raticate Atk522 vs. Dusknoir Hp294/Def
Zen Headbutt 37.76-44.56 3 Hits to KO (SR+3 Layer of Spikes 2 Hit KO)
Wild Charge 42.52-50.34 3 Hits to KO (3 layer of Spike 2 Hit KO)

Sorry for the long list!
As you can see after Sword Dance and Active Guts can demolish everything! Aggron and Rhyperior can wall a +2 Raticate easily. If you see any Pokemon left out it's because they get OHKO'd by a Swords Dance Raticate Guts activated or I left them out. Most Pokemon are either Done and Copyediting. Highly recommend for UU with proper support of Dual Screen and Wish Support. Again sorry for the long list.
 
no to both Serperior and Raticate. Serperior just doesn't hit hard enough, and we already have Sceptile and Whimsicott (when it drops). We have no need for covering Serperior as it is.

Rat is frail, slow, and is outclassed by Pokemon like Swellow and Tauros, both of which are mediocre at best in UU. So no, Rat is no good.

ya if you dont want to read through that then i will make it simple, but im tired so ill just use the log for now
 
So, I know that it's already in the GP stage of development, but I don't really understand why Pinsir is getting an analysis.

The analysis itself states that Pinsir is no good unless he is ran alongside Heracross, and that he's almost completely outclassed by Heracross. To me it seems that if a Pokemon is only viable if used on a team with another Pokemon (who outclasses it) then it isn't really all that viable at all.

I realize how great Pinsir pairs with Heracross, but I don't think he deserves an analysis if it's a "use me with Heracross or don't use me at all" scenario.

Like there aren't a million users that depend on drizzle P'toed or tails... Don't rag on my bug >:(

And might I make an attempt to bring about the inclusion of Lapras, whom already has a completed OU analyses yet is still on the list? Essentially a feraligatr with ice type but has access to ice shard and hydration, a useful ability even without the presence of Drizzle.

Fraxure gets the go ahead, spamming that boss Outrage seems good enough to me.

About Pinsir.... idk, I think it's just going to be a special case because it does have a nice niche in Moldbreaker. I can also make the argument that as far as outclassing something goes Heracross > Pinsir is far less than say Mew/Uxie > Gardevoir. I won't argue that you should run Pinsir instead of Heracross though. I think we'll just let it slide.

Drizzle is the only reason Lapras has an OU analysis >.>

Without Drizzle, Lapras is terrible and is in no way "a Feraligatr with an Ice-type." It's more of a "crappy Walrein."
