    Sorry double post, but I just realized Hydreigon gets Hustle. It's usually associated with Drought, but Hustle gives it hugely powerful Outrages. You just need a way to clear out Shadow Tag Terrakion first or run Focus Sash.

    Watch out.

    Drizzle Dragonite, Wonder Guard Volcarona and Contrary Palkia will be ridiculously good. Free 100% spammable Thunders and STAB Hurricanes at will? Yes please. Immune to all but water / rock / flying while setting up Quiver Dances? Yes please? Uber-level Dragon with increasingly powerful Draco Meteors? HELL F**KING YES!

    Also Hustle Hydreigon's Outrage would be about 15-20% STRONGER than Medicham's Hi Jump Kick. That's insane.

    Motor Drive Haxorus has been noted, but I'm pretty sure this set is what might break him
    Haxorus@Life Orb/Yache Berry/Leftovers
    EV's: 252 Attack/252 Speed
    Trait: Sand Veil
    Adamant Nature
    -Substitute
    -Dragon Dance
    -Outrage
    -Superpower

    Sand Veil negates the sandstorm damage. Basically this is Garchomp's dream set.

    Wow, this thread isn't getting as much attention as it did. Anyways, has anyone noticed sand rush Scrafty? This would be blisteringly fast after a DD, and could do some serious damage.

    There are some nice Sand Rushers in Wonkymons but no good Sand Stream setter. We get Charizard, Abra, Horsea, and Dragonite, all of whom are weak to passive sand damage. At least Dnite has Roost. :/

    Well, Abra has Magic Guard, but lol it's abra. I think D-Nite is the best setter.

    Abra doesn't keep Magic Guard in Wonkymons, and even if he did, he can't have two abilities.
    Anyway, this thread should be alive! It's one of the best other metas.

    Why wasn't stall removed, it's a bad ability
    Why are some abilities bolded
    And now Entei can either quad-resist fire and ice, or resist fire slightly less (3/4x effective) and get a water immunity (but hurt by sun lol), while Nuzleaf got two flamin' abilities
    Plus Simple Double-Dancer Groudon
    Also a many of the Drought users are good pokemon

    This Meta looks awesome :)

    Just some little hidden gems I found

    1. Regenerator Zapdos could be pretty awesome. Defensive or SpD Zapdos is pretty good already, with reliable recovery, toxic, higher than average speed, access to phazing, and access to powerful stab even without investment. With Regenerator, it becomes even more of a tank, and nullifies its SR weakness a bit as well.

    2. Toxic Boost E-vire could be pretty sick as well. With an already acceptable base 123 attack, it could wreak a ton of havoc with that 1.5x Attack boost from toxic. Access to Facade, Wild Charge, Earthquake, Cross Chop, and the elemental punches makes this thing a pretty decent threat. I imagine it could either run a Toxic Orb or just switch in on a toxic/TSpikes.

    Awesome job with the meta, I'll probably give it a try soon :)


    Edit: A great partner for Regenerator Zapdos on a stall team would be Harvest Registeel. Harvest gives Registeel what it needed to finally become an effective wall - reliable recovery. Granted, outside of the sun Harvest with a lum/chesto isn't quite as effective, but it's still pretty good. Registeel easily covers Zapdos' weaknesses to Rock and Ice, whereas Zapdos eats Ground and Fighting moves for breakfast.

    Edit2: In other news for awesome electric types, LIGHTNINGROD RAIKOU. This thing would fit so well into a Rain Team, absorbing Electric type attacks and giving it a +1 boost, where it can then fire off ridiculous special attacks. I'm thinking something along the lines of this:

    Raikou @ Life Orb
    Trait: Lightningrod
    EVs: 252 SpA/252 Spe/4 SpD
    Modest/Timid Nature
    - Thunder
    - Weather Ball (base 100 rain boosted water move in the rain :3)
    - HP Ice
    - Volt Switch/Aura Sphere(rash)/Extrasensory

    Pretty threatening.

    I like this, but I feel like there should be a UU tier added, since a lot of the game seems centered around things like Dragonite and Mewtwo, and so a lot of the weaker things that get good abilities don't get a lot of screentime. Anyway, I thought of an interesting set, it might be posted already, but here it is

    Clamperl@DeepSeaTooth
    Sand Rush
    Surf
    Ice Beam
    HP Electric/Substitute
    Shell Smash

    Get Sand Stream going with Dragonite and you'll have a fun time crashing through everything, hopefully. I don't need to explain much else.

    I might make a Pastebin with 'tiers' or at least OU and UU stuff. I don't play Wonky that much TBH so people would have to suggest ideas.

    For OU I'd think it would be:
    Terrakion
    Palkia
    Volcarona
    Groudon
    Suicune
    Dragonite
    Keldeo
    Castform (?)
    and so on

    Contrary Palkia sounds scary, almost too good if you ask me. Can anything stop it now that Wonder Guard Elekid is banned?

    Actually I used to run one with Calm Mind, Psystrike, Aura Sphere and Recover. It's basically the same as standard ubers mewtwo except it always gets to set up first now, and recover off the damage.

    tbh this is one of the coolest OM's and it gets no love, which is a shame
    I'd play it again on joimslab if it wasn't bugged with the ubers thing
