At a glance most notable from the stats this month is UU has a alarmingly high drop off in defensive and stall teams compared to OU which lends definitive support to some people expressing the month before how UU is heavily biased in favour of full offensive. Some more in depth thoughts on the actual mons. Specslure, I called it months ago and the stats have proved it. It's now the definitive primary set for Chand and has solidified his place at No.3. I suspect once more people start EV'ing it properly so that it actually takes advantage of it's underrated good defenses it'll continue to rise further. It is all kinds of cheap practically guaranteeing a kill since it basically has zero checks and only one true counter. Arcanine, has returned to glory with the absence of sand and brings a vital defensive fire type which is practically non-existant in general and high powered sweeper with priority. Depending on how you want to use it of course. Kind of related as well is all fire types in the tier have seen a rise in usage in the tier. It's a shame we don't have rank based stats because I'm almost sure Cofagrigus would be a lot higher. I have seen a large majority of top ranking players on the ladder packing a Cofa. Which basically tells me this is the same case as Krookodile, a deadly game winning mon which most players just won't or can't use. There is basically no point in using Mismagius in between Chandelure and Cofagrigus. Oh and to the retards who keep U-Turning into Cofagrigus you don't get any regenerator recovery and do more damage to yourself with LO than to Cofa, stop it. Gothitelle is another case of Wobbuffet where it's stats don't tell the whole story. I have seen this thing render normally powerful defensive cores complete deadweight. Gligar's have to run U-Turn now less you want to be insta-swept, Qwilfish is completely unviable when at the start of B/W2 it was actually brilliant. Also from what I've seen there is a criminally large number of people who don't know how the hell to use Goth properly and switch it in inappropriately... Nidoqueen joins Cofagrigus as being one of the most criminally underused mons in the whole of UU. A offensive SR setter, powerful enough to nuke the same mons Nidoking does but able to survive some strong hits and it is deceptively fast. Scrafty has basically become fairly ineffective in UU and is still in the 'new toy' period. Due to the rising re-resurgence of Togekiss's popularity along with Heracross, Mienshao taking strong footholds and most special attackers like Chand spitting in the face of it. I don't understand the pointless bashing of Ambipom, I don't use it but even I can recognize it has it's uses, but I leave it at that. Xatu usage has fallen heavily this month I somewhat suspect by it rarely finding a chance to even get a setup in. Also fuck Mew. If I have to see that genetic freak in UU again I swear I'll punch a baby from dealing with it's master of everything shenanigans. Also beware of Meloetta when it shows, mark my words once people realize it's most effective set which doesn't seem to ever get mentioned it will sweep like hell.
