    Tornadus with Prankster Spore will be incredible in this metagame. You can essentially disable any would-be counter, leaving you free to do whatever. It would also make for an amazing revenge killer, halting the sweep of anything caught without a Substitute or Lum Berry.

    Yes, Prankster Spore, the bane of BH. Magic Bounce will be more popular but a shame it's limited to Espeon and Xatu.

    Magic Coatmons are also a good bet. It has a better distribution than Bounce. Sap Sipper likewise could rise in usage.

    Just wanted to say, it's Sketchmons, EVERYTHING can learn Magic Coat. Sap Sipper and Magic Bounce are both great vs. Spore, that is true, but Whimsicott 252+ Spe Spore is better than Tornadus, outspeeding him and sleeping him immediately, or using Taunt to stop other Prasnkter Spore-mons.

    Yes, but Sketchmons isn't BH--you get 1 Sketch slot. So you have to decide if you'd rather teach Magic Coat to something that doesn't normally use it or teach a better move (immediate setup like Shell Smash, Quiver Dance, etc) to something that already has Magic Coat.

    Would you rather teach Magic Coat to Gengar instead of a superior coverage move (Aura Sphere/Secret Sword)?
    - or -
    Teach Shell Smash to something that already learns Magic Coat like Simple Swoobat?

    ok something that could easily work great is: have a prankster sableye use memento on an opponent and switch to belly drum + extreme speed ursarang/snorlax (it works great in stabmons)

    IMPORTANT UPDATE: (sorry if this is necro bumping by OM standards :<)

    This metagame is now playable on my server: http://50.159.57.193.psim.us/

    Thanks to "Great Spirit" for making such an amazing metagame
    Thanks to myself for starting to code this
    Huge thanks for Piikachuun for fixing up my coding that crashed my server like 3 times, he is the true person to thank here (without him we would just have mad server crashes with me never catching my mistake)

    :SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST, BUT NOBODY POSTED IN A DAMN MONTH SO I THINK THIS IS FAIR:Hey, guys, I know it's been a while, but I still love this meta and think it definitely has potential, I hate the fact that everyone is ignoring this meta makes me a bit sad, but I came up with some really "inventive sets":

    Keldeo:
    [​IMG]
    Sketched Move: Judgement
    Keldeo @ Spooky Plate / Insect Plate
    Trait: Justified
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
    Timid Nature
    - Judgement
    - Calm Mind
    - Hydro Pump
    - Secret Sword

    This may look odd at first, why waste your sketch slot on judgement? you ask, my answer is that partnered with calm mind, it muscles through a lot of keldeos checks, and it still achieves a lot of the same OHKOs and 2HKOs as specs after a CM anyhow, this set also can really buff specs or scarf well until you pull out CM judgement late game, runnign plate judgement lets you also check imposter ditto and transform chansey because you can simply run keldeo + keldeo check and since their judgement is normal, you can just get rid of them, especially ditto variants.
    To show how well this set can do, let me show off some calcs:
    +1 252 SpA Spooky Plate Keldeo Judgment (Ghost) vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Latias: 312-368 (85.71 - 101.09%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock
    +1 252 SpA Spooky Plate Keldeo Judgment (Ghost) vs. 252 HP / 236+ SpD Celebi: 284-336 (70.29 - 83.16%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
    OR
    +1 252 SpA Insect Plate Keldeo Judgment (Bug) vs. 252 HP / 236+ SpD Celebi: 568-672 (140.59 - 166.33%) -- guaranteed OHKO
    +1 252 SpA Spooky Plate Keldeo Judgment (Ghost) vs. 252 HP / 220+ SpD Jellicent: 278-328 (68.81 - 81.18%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
    +1 252 SpA Spooky Plate Keldeo Judgment (Ghost) vs. 244 HP / 0 SpD Toxicroak: 277-326 (75.27 - 88.58%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

    [​IMG]
    Sketched Move: Quiver Dance
    Keldeo @ Life Orb / Splash Plate
    Trait: Justified
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
    Timid Nature
    - Quiver Dance
    - Hidden Power [Bug / Ghost]
    - Hydro Pump
    - Secret Sword

    Ah, when you look at keldeo, you really think "what if this pokemon could boost it's offenses AND speed at the same time?" you would get QD Keldeo. QD Keldeo is noticably one of those under appreciated but large threats in the metagame, QD lets it outspeed up to base 107 scarfers and beat the living crap out of what dare switches into it's hydro pump, once this thing gets going, it's so damned hard to stop, with Hydro Pump and S-Sword KOing stuff left and right while outspeeding a large part of the meta, you truly have a threat on your hands, the speed boost is key for not getting revenge killed, letting it outspeed shit like scarf thundurus which would have outsped it if not for the speed boost.

    those are my keldeo sets, I have some more poke sets, will edit this post in a bit with some others

    Is there any particular reason you opt for Hydro Pump over Surf? If Hydro Pump doesn't score any notable KOs over Surf, I'd prefer the reliability, so jw.

    Well, Hydro Pump allows you to get kills a lot easier, and takes off the pressure of having SR on the field to kill shit, plus this is BW meta, so offense is much more needed

    Ok so I'm late to this discussion, which seems to happen a lot. The last post was 8 months ago so kill me if I missed something big...

    When I attempt to go to http://50.159.57.193-8888.psim.us, I can't connect to the server. I am probably doing something wrong (that happens a lot, too). But what? I really love this idea of a metagame and might actually be good at it. Or is the statement NOW PLAYABLE ON PS just obsolete?

    That's because someone already posted sketchmons XY. Also no offense, but notice the thread that says something along the lines of "STOP BUMPING OLD BW METAGAMES".
