    not really, we are used to Fire/Fighting types and all it really adds is another option on offense and helping speed pass be relevant for a bit

    Combusken will have great role compression in PU with SD and SB along with Work Up to boost both attacking stats for mixed sets. It will be an interesting mon to fight in PU

    Combusken will be decent at best in PU as it's mostly outclassed by Monferno. Monferno has access to Mach Punch, U-turn, and more reliable Fighting STAB in Close Combat. Monferno also has a higher initial base speed stat meaning it doesn't have to rely on Protect to start out speeding things. The only niche it will have over Monferno is speed pass which won't be broken in the slightest as PU doesn't have anything like Xatu to pass to.

    Although I believe that Combusken's SD set is outclassed by Monferno, its specially offensive set is unique and isn't outclassed by Monferno. Whether that special set has a niche (I bet it will), we will have to see, but I'm just pointing out that you are discounting this set.

    I contacted him and he said it should be up in a few more days. Gotta be patient until then.

    Probably the effects of having so many damn tiers, more stats to compile n such. Almost seems it'd be worth it to drop support for super niche stuff to make it faster but I doubt that would feel fair to those who play it.
