    Finally, a little something extra. I calculated the probability for every Pokemon to feature in a battle, being in either or both competing teams. The formula I used is the following:

    Code:
    Probability for a Pokemon to feature in a battle = (U * (4*B - 1 - U)) / (B * (4*B - 2))
    
    where B is the total number of battles played in the entire month
          U is the amount of usage for that particular Pokemon
    If you want to know from where I got this formula, post here and I'll reply with an explanation.

    Amazing how Bullet Punch has a higher Typical use percentage than Dragon Dance considering:

    Dragon Dance can be run on: Salamence/Gyarados/Tyranitar/Dragonite
    All of which are top threats (less so Dragonite)

    Bullet Punch can be run on: Scizor
    And occasionally Lucario.

    So basically Scizor has trumped every DD sweeper o.O
    Thanks for these X-Act! They'll prove very helpful :D

    Also Metagross, most leads set run Bullet Punch. The thing about this though is that not all, maybe not even most, Salamence run Dragon Dance, (most Gyara do though), most Tyranitar certainly do not use Dragon Dance. Just about every Scizor out there will have Bullet Punch.

    Wow, just about 50% of teams have Scizor.

    Thank you X-act.

    This does not mean that 50% of teams have Scizor, just that there is a 50% that either player will have Scizor.

    Hmm, these are interesting. Especially this:

    Bullet Punch 6.75%
    Dragon Dance 6.73%
    Swords Dance 6.71%

    Thanks for these as always.

    By the time the Garchomp peaked out usage (as in right before it was banned), it reached +50% usage. I wonder if Scizor will break that record?

    Not only that, Bullet Punch trumped out Waterfall, meaning Scizor is more popular than Gyarados.

    Are there going to be item percentages this month?

    This is probably the effect of the high-profile RMT threads (Team Kevin Please Come Home, and also the recent SD Breloom team that got 16th). Both those teams featured Spikes and needed them to function, so people either copied the teams outright or made teams with similar strategies.

    There's something that's always bugged me about the typical moveset statistics. I'll demonstrate by example.

    Now, it says that U-turn can replace any of the 4 moves. However, can U-turn really replace Bug Buzz or Air Slash and still have a typical moveset? It seems more reasonable to say that U-turn could replace Protect or HP Ground, but it really can't replace Air Slash or Bug Buzz.

    Heres the disclaimer from last month's:
    To shorten, these movesets/EV spreads are from number crunching, not actually looking at who used what specific moveset how many times.

    If there were a total of B battles, then 2*B teams competed. Of these 2*B teams, U of them contained the Pokemon in question. That means that (2*B - U) of them did not contain the Pokemon.

    Suppose we're looking at a random battle, featuring two of these 2*B teams. The probability that one of these teams did not contain the Pokemon in question is (2*B - U) / (2*B). The probability that the other team also did not contain the Pokemon in question is (2*B - U - 1) / (2*B - 1), since the team couldn't have played against itself. Hence, the probability that a battle did NOT contain the Pokemon is ((2*B - U) / (2*B)) * ((2*B - U - 1) / (2*B - 1)). And thus, the probability that a battle DID contain the Pokemon is 1 minus the above expression, which can be simplified thus:

    Code:
      1 - ((2*B - U) / (2*B)) * ((2*B - U - 1) / (2*B - 1))
    = 1 - (2*B - U) * (2*B - 1 - U) / (B * (4*B - 2))
    = 1 - (4*B^2 - 2*B - 2*B*U - 2*B*U + U + U^2) / (B * (4*B - 2))
    = (B * (4*B - 2) - (4*B^2 - 2*B - 4*B*U + U + U^2)) / (B * (4*B - 2))
    = (4*B^2 - 2*B - 4*B^2 + 2*B + 4*B*U - U - U^2) / (B * (4*B - 2))
    = (4*B*U - U - U^2) / (B * (4*B - 2))
    = U * (4*B - 1 - U) / (B * (4*B - 2))
    as given in the original post.

    Earthquake is realy good on OU and UU. That Thunder is used in Uber so much is because Kyogre is in Uber Tier.

    Thanks a lot X-Act for this facts.

    In August, if you played 2 games, there was a 99.16% chance that you or your opponents had a Scizor. I'm not surprised, frankly.

    It's actually to the tune of 74.58%. :) A quick way to approximate this is to take the percentage listed in the original post, multiply it by the same percentage subtracted from 200 and then divide by 100..

    Yeah, but uh since the original quote was "if you play 2 battles...", inferring that "your" team is counted twice. I'm not sure how to weight it (not that good at statistics) though...

    Interesting, Ice Beam usage is dropping and Thunderbolt usage is rising. Is this due to the general decline in Dragon-types, or another reason altogether? More mysteries to ponder...

    Let's look at the statistics, and see that this is really explainable. The biggest changes is that Rotom formes and Latias jumped 4 ranks each, with increases of about 2.5%. Now you might be saying, Ice Beam fares better against these guys than Tbolt! Why is Tbolt usage going up?

    Because about 60% of Rotom formes and 44% of Latias carry Tbolt. Done.
