    Just as an FYI to all: Lots of real-life stuff happening lately: new job, moving and such. I won't have much time to be on the forums :(

    Another really interesting typing change and one that fits with Eelektross very well flavor-wise too. Poison is absolutely wonderful defensively. A large list of useful resistances and decent defenses would make Eelektross an even better pivot than it already is, with the only downside being it...

    Bisharp

    Yep, completely agree with everything CBB had to say on the matter. AV is a decent choice but it's very situational (and Alex's spread is needed to get the full value from it). Even then Bisharp really needs that item boost, whether Blackglasses or LO, it's hugely important and that's been shown...

    Deoxys-S

    I think SR should be the first slash on the RK set's final slot. Knock Off is nice to mess with Aegis and Chansey, but Deo-S's ability to set up SR shouldn't be underestimated, especially since it can threaten out a variety of fast offensive mons. There are many other mons that make better use...

    Bisharp

    I'm glad to see some discussion about the 4th moveslot here, thank you! Just to weigh in on what's been suggested... I completely agree with both of you. If you look way back at my comments on page 1 you'll see that I've never liked Sub as a slash on Bisharp, but evil Fuzznip coerced me into...

    Snorlax with Poison Heal is a really interesting idea! Snorlax has always had the potential to wall many special threats but has lacked the recovery to take repeated hits, and was vulnerable to status. Poison Heal fixes his two biggest worries, and in the process gives Snorlax a wonderful 210 BP...

    It's already in that order Jukain :)

    Pokémon Weavile

    There are two Weavile "sets" that are best in my opinion, and those are a Sash lead, and a Life Orb all-out-attacker. Really the only difference is the item equipped, because a moveset of Knock Off / Ice Punch / Ice Shard / Low Kick is pretty hard to argue with (aside from the possibility of...

    Other XY OU Viability Ranking Thread (B- and C+ Pokemon discussion)

    I see this list as a good guide for people who are new to XY OU, or new to competitve battling in general. I'm always interested in helping people new to the game, because Smogon is what got me into competive pokemon years ago! Obviously, does it matter in battle if a Pokemon is B- or C+ in this...

    Bisharp

    I had already suggested that exact change with alex, so if you support it as well, I'm going to go ahead and add it in. I've always been a big fan of Pursuit Bisharp and it's one of the best users!

    Aegislash

    Yeah, Colonel M was exactly right to suggest the 0 Atk IV, it's pretty important. Taking so little damage from Foul Play (in fact, failing to break your Sub) is one of the benefits of using the SubToxic set, as it allows Aegis to reliably beat Mandi 1-on-1 without resorting to Head Smash. That's...

    Other XY OU Viability Ranking Thread (B- and C+ Pokemon discussion)

    Gothitelle -> B- rank. Gothitelle isn't listed yet for some unknown reason, but it definitely deserves to be. Shadow Tag is obviously amazing, and Goth is the most well-rounded trapper available, as it can actually attack (sorry Wobb) and take a hit without sash (sorry Dugtrio). The list of...

    Other XY OU Viability Ranking Thread (B- and C+ Pokemon discussion)

    I've been using Weavile a lot lately, and I too was waiting for the B-/C+ discussion to begin before suggesting it. The best Weavile set has been Knock Off / Ice Shard / Low Kick / Ice Punch and it's very fast and respectably powerful. Knock Off is a huge boost for it, giving it a high BP move...

    Pokémon Bisharp

    Uh... I said that in the exact post you're quoting :[ It's generally best to run max speed on Bisharp to outspeed as many threats as possible, such as defensive Lando-T and Rotom-W. I'm not sure why the damage calc suggests 224, since those few HP EVs aren't going to make much of a difference.

    I have to vote for Flash Fire Gourgeist, it's a theorymon I nearly proposed myself. It's also something that fits it so well that I actually expected it to be official, back when we were still unsure about XY's hidden abilities. Somehow Litwik is a candle that absorbs fire, but Gourgeist is a...
