    Gen 5 will stay "untouched" in here until we know most, if not all the mechanics with the old and new stuff available. There also isn't a real "metagame" at this point, which makes it twice as difficult to do anything. No simulator is available for Gen 5 either, which makes metagame-building much more difficult.

    So to answer your question "it will be a while".

    There is a plan for the analyses that will be made known shortly. Besides, this thread doesn't belong in the Shoddy Battle forum.
