    Specs Heatran can OHKO Machamp, Occagross and Swampert with the right move, making it a great anti-lead.

    And lol@those using Sturdy Magnezone and Illuminate Starmie.

    Never mind Magikarp, who the heck is behind:

    | Shedinja | HP EV | Max | 9.2 |

    in Ubers?

    Unfortunately, I haven't been able to play (goddamn laptop), but if I could, I would certainly include a Slowbro on my team. Slowbro is probably Machamp's greatest threat, and I think it is for that reason that it's seen increased usage (82% Mar. to 69% Apr.). I think we'll see further increased Slowbro usage in OU.

    If you have anyone who can Baton Pass a Substitute, remaining EVs go in defenses to make it that bit tougher (maybe to take a leadkarp tackle ;-) ). If not, put them in speed - there's not much it's gonna help you outspeed, but there's Forretress and enemy Shedinja. And if you get a Choice Scarf Tricked on you you'll outspeed neutral base 84s and + natured base 71s. Not that there's much down there, but hey, anything you can get.
    In lower tiers, of course this is all rather more relevant.

    SD Darkrai makes so much more sense in comparison. It even has an analysis that (I think) has gone past QC.

    Alakazam broke through the #50 mark in OU, he is #48. Hmm, he might go back up to OU due to usage like Roserade did, although it will be unlikely, at worst he will be voted the next suspect and be pushed into BL.

    I think it is very interesting that Tentacruel passed Roserade in usage for the first time in a few months

    (People are finally realizing there are solutions to sleep, and cruel has better sp def, and a better primary stab... the list goes on)

    that's what I always do when I'm using a lead exploder. Unless you've got a hard counter to machamp like slowbro or something I think exploding is best course of action if you're using a lead like heatran

    The cut off is when they're on less than 2.5% of all teams.

    Machamp is surely skyrocketing up the lead list.

    This is wrong. The cutoff is explained here. (I'll stop making my posts so short, I guess.)
