Permission granted by Birkal. Credit to Kieran for the banner PU is a very fun and thriving metagame. However, there is no organized place to maintain a database of standard sets. That means that when newer players want to start building teams, they'll have to use sets that are meant for the higher tiers (if the Pokemon has an analysis at all). This thread is meant to collect the best sets that we can find for each PU Pokemon so that everyone has a database that they can use to learn the metagame and build teams. Think of it as a dedicated PU Strategy Dex! Rules: 1. You MUST TEST the set(s) you post. This cannot be emphasized enough since we are looking for highly standarized sets. If you can show logs or calcs for the set, or someone can vouch for the set, it will likely be considered for the database. Many of the more common/high ranking Pokemon already have sets that are basically the perfect set for that Pokemon (like Rotom-F), so you don't need to provide justification in that case. However, this isn't a thread for posting creative, underrated or gimmicky sets; you can go to Project PU for something like that. The rest of the PU Viability Council will look at the sets and decide if it is viable or not on a less clear cut case. 2. No Speed Creep. Since this would act as the Strategy Dex for PU, I want to prevent people from posting sets that try to outspeed something that can easily just add more Speed EVs and cause an annoying cycle of increasing Speed investment. 3. Post a description of your set. Similar to the actual analyses you must describe how the set works. That includes items, nature and EV spreads as well. Also, for less effective Pokemon, you should mention what aspects help it differ from similar Pokemon. Mention what kind of situation it excels in, what support it needs to succeed, etc. Teammates aren't necessary, but would be helpful for someone who wants to build a team. 4. Keep everything in the standard set format (shown below). I'll put it in that format regardless, but there is literally no reason not to do it. It is exportable for Pokemon Showdown! and Pokemon Online, which makes it easier for everyone. Plus it just looks presentable. Format (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Format (open) Format (close) [insert mons sprite here] Set Name Pokemon @ Item Trait: EVs: Nature: ~ Move 1 ~ Move 2 ~ Move 3 ~ Move 4 5. Use proper English! I think this speaks for itself but if you need a reason: I want this to look semi-readable. 6. Keep the set's name simple and concise. If a set really deserves a custom name, the PU community at large will start using the name first. If everyone uses the name I will update the set name then, and only then. Let's get to it guys!
