Goals of this project are to help newer Uber players to learn informations about a specific Pokemon like what sets are viable and his effect in the metagame, create a discution of Uber players about their experiences with each Pokemon, how it best functions, his effect in the metagame and see why players would want to use or not use it. A new Pokemon will be post every Sunday. In this topic, discuss of the most popular and efficace sets, his roles in the metagame, who is countered and checked by this Pokemon, his counters and his checks, his disadvantages, his best teammates and how he fits into the metagame.
