    Metang

    Ok, does this really need an analysis on-site? It sucks in NU, and I don't see how its any better in RU, but w/e

    Also, sorry for the some of the abbeviations in the skeleton, I hope by now everyone knows when I write this up, it won't look anything like this!

    [Overview]

    - Cool Pokemon, sadly not much going in RU
    - However, they are some perps, Steel / Psychic typing gives it 8 resistances and an immunity
    - 60 / 100 / 80 Defenses made even better with Evolite
    - However, not much it can do thats outclasseed
    - Also, with common Fire and Ground-type weaknesses, its easy to beat, espically with only base 75 Attack
    - No recovery at all, which makes it easier to beat (no leftovers also)

    [SET]
    name: Dual Screens
    move 1: Reflect
    move 2: Light Screen
    move 3: Stealth Rock / Earthquake
    move 4: Meteor Mash
    item: Light Clay / Eviolite
    nature: Impish
    evs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD

    [SET COMMENTS]

    - Best it can do, I guess....
    - Dual Screens support helps teammates, so not too much explaning here
    - Stealth Rock is nice, as it helps support sweepers / weaken Pokemon on the switch
    - EQ can be used however to hit Electric and Fire-type Pokemon such as Manectric and Entei on the switch
    - Meteor Mash is STAB, and base 100 Attack isn't bad

    [AC]

    - 252 HP / 252 Def Maximize physical bulk, with 4 SpD to increase Special Bulk slightly
    - 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD can be used, but the physical one is better at taking on Pokemon such as Aerodactly
    - Light Clay maximizes Screen time, but Eviolite makes its defenses skyrocket
    - Wish support is nice as Metang can't heal by itself, so pokes such as Shelgon, Lickilicky and Leafeon make great partners as they can pass on wishes to Metang
    - Pokemon that can switch in on Metang's weakness also make great partners
    - Offensive partners, such as Altaria, Aerodactyl, and Moltres all work, resisting Fire-type attacks while being immune to Ground-type attacks, and all can use the Screens to set up or attack in Moltres's case
    - SD and DD Gator also makes a great partner, clearing out both Ground and Fire-type Pokemon with a powerful Warerfall / Aqua Jet
    - Thick Fat Harriyama and Kabutops as well as Omastar make good partners as well
    - Grass-type Pokemon can switch in on an EQ and use Grass-type STAB to threaten them out, but Fire-type weakness racks up

    [Other Options]

    - Toxic
    - Gravity
    - Sunny Day or Rain Dance
    - Magnet Rise
    - ThunderPunch
    - Zen Headbutt
    - Pursuit
    - Rock Slide
    - Ice Punch
    - Bullet Punch
    - Choice Band with a mix of all of the above and Trick, but you know you wanna use something else
    - Gyro Ball
    - Hone Claws
    - Agility or Rock Polish

    [Checks and Counters]

    - Kill it with Fire, literally!
    - Moltres doesn't care about anything Metang can use other than Rock Slide or ThunderPunch, and can easily roast it with Fire Blast or sub in its face
    - Charizard is the same thing, only it can roast or set up Sun in its face
    - Magneton traps Metang's w/o EQ, and set up a sub, in its face, , and even if it did have EQ, Magnet Rise trumps that as well
    - Ferroseed uses Metang as set up bait for hazards, and Leech Seed will also wear it down since it doesn't have any recovery
    - Aggron just smashes through it with EQ
    - Crawdaunt, Gator, Slowking, and Poliwrath just use this as set up bait
    - Rotom and Rotom-C are immune to EQ and resist Meteor Mash, and both can use Trick to cripple it, or set up a sub, or burn with Will-O-Wisp
    - Confag, Uxie, Dusknoir, Tangrowth all tank attacks easily, with the ghosts using WIll-O-Wisp to cripple it, Uxie using Trick Scarf to cripple, or setting up a sub and proceed to Calm Mind, and Tangrowth can attack Metang's weaker side with Focus Blast
    - Taunt users, such as Whimsi and Aero can shut it down so it can't set up
    - If you can't beat Metang, quit RU and go to Battling 101, I'm serious
