    Whilst Venomoth's begins ...

    I'm deeply disturbed that five of my current laddering team are on the expert player list ... I'm becoming dull.

    Worse still all of my UU/NU ladder team are on the "normal" player list, bar one which is on the "expert list".

    Right time to build a Parasect team.

    This is not a usage list. This is the average rating of the account using each particular Pokemon.

    Earthworm asked me if I could post the Pokemon that are outside the top 250 in the usage list as well. Here they are, the 'supergimmick' Pokemon!

    Fancy using a Flaaffy, or a Rhyhorn, or a Shellder? They were used by players whose average rating is exactly 1584! Hmm... I'm suspecting that these Pokemon were used by only one player having rating 1584...

    Look at Gastrodon barely making it to the list! Gogo Gastrodon! ♥
    People really need to use it more- it has a lot of potential. Killing Grass Knoters with Mirror Coat has never been so fun.

    So did I, hah. :3

    The most surprise on this list is that Grimer is used by more "expert" players than Weavile O__O

    Well, it means that Weavile is used by experts, medium players and noobs alike, whereas Grimer was probably used by (a very few, maybe even one) medium player only.

    I used Moltres quite a bit too.. glad someone else sees potential in it. Was it your lead, because it jumped as a lead pokemon.. from #47 to #30 I think.

    Another cheerleader for Gastrodon and Moltres. =D Both have great potential, and I'm glad to see them on.

    Yay, Venomoth! I was planning to use it in a team when I decided what set to use and everything, so I'm glad to see it climbing upwards.

    Celebi and Zapdos don't surprise me to be honest, both are excellent support on any team if used correctly, however, for players who do not have good synergy, they are not quite as usesful.

    Nidoqueen usage by top players is interesting. I guess her typing would be pretty good to play around with.

    Where did Roserade come from? It's become quite popular.

    whoa, I'm quiet suprised by both Roserade and Venomoth usage. along with this Walrein is pretty high up there. its funny, because to be honest I don't see many of those used against me.
