5th Gen Uber Analysis Index
Approved by Great Sage
. Maintained by Nexus
Thanks to Aerrow for the category tags.

This thread will be used to catalog all analysis written for the fifth generation Uber metagame, and just to organize everything into a single post so users can see what's been reserved and what's free. Additionally, all reservations and updates on the status of your analysis should be posted in this thread. I will maintain this list, but I need the cooperation of the writers, you, to keep it up-to-date. Therefore, if your analysis receives QC or GP approval and the like, please post here so that I may update the index accordingly. The remainder of this post has additional information on C&C policy and other general information.

C&C General Information

Useful Links for Analysis Writers


Analysis listed in the index will be categorized in the following manner:

[Placeholder] – Will be put beside your analysis if your analysis has just been reserved and has no work done on it; the thread for your analysis will be marked by “(placeholder)”. Note that once you reserve an analysis, you must post a placeholder thread.

[Skeleton] – Will be put beside your analysis if your analysis is in the skeleton format.

[Written] – Will be put beside your analysis if your analysis has been written up (in a detailed and organized fashion)

[Completed] – Once your analysis has received the required amount of QC approvals and GP stamps, post here, and I'll change the tag of your analysis to "Completed" which signifies it is done and ready for upload.

[Unreserved] – This analysis has not been reserved, so you're free to reserve it.

General Guideline for this Thread:

  • When posting a reservation, provide a link to the placeholder thread.
  • Each time your analysis passes one of the categories QC approval and GP checks are included in these categories, as well as the ones outlined above.
  • If the OP of an analysis has been inactive for a sufficient amount of time and you wish to take over the analysis, contact the previous author and obtain permission from them to take it over. Once they have replied and given their consent to you taking ownership of their analysis, post here indicating that they have done so. If a member has been inactive for a long period of time, then contact one of the Uber analysis moderators and ask them for permission, do not post here asking if you can take over someone's analysis.
  • If you reserve an analysis, you are expected to see it through until the end (has received its 2 QC stamps and 2 GP checks, and is labeled done) when it will be uploaded. If you know you're not going to take the time or make the effort to finish it, do not reserve the analysis.
  • If you decide to remove your reservation, please post here saying so. It would be best if you provided a reason, insufficient reason to abandon a reservation will effect your ability to reserve an analysis in the future if you so choose to.

Since the Uber tier permits the use of any available Pokemon, there are bound to be some Pokemon that QC have explicitly deemed not viable in the current Uber metagame and have rejected. When reserving an analysis be aware of these rejected Pokemon. Additionally, DO NOT use this thread to discuss their viability in the Uber tier, this is not the place for that.

Superimp, I've said this to Furai, and I'll say this to you as well. Please do not continue to reserve analysis when you already have plenty on your hands. You've already reserved Latias and Normal Arceus (both huge projects), so please don't reserve Lugia along with it. It not only puts excessive pressure on yourself, but it also stops other people having a go at these analyses as well. Furthermore, it slows down the entire system, because we have to wait for you to finish writing these analyses when someone else could easily have taken over. It's like running a bunch of light bulbs in a series circuit when we could easily have run them in parallel. Fine.

So please, to everyone else reserving stuff here, please DO NOT RESERVE SO MANY ANALYSES. I wouldn't suggest you reserve more than two analyses at a time. Please finish what you started before starting something new!

Look, everyone appreciates your efforts, but C&C is a team first and foremost. You all need to do what's beneficial for the team, not to go after personal glory. I'm sorry if I'm harsh, but what's going on is not in the team's best interests.

I have a ton of shit to do atm, so the only thing I'm going to reserve is Ditto since its pretty viable in Ubers, but also so simple that even I can't find a way to screw this up timewise...

I'll try reserving Latios for now. I've got plenty of time to get it through QC, will put up placeholder link in a minute. I fear its sets will be pretty similar to last gens though-_-.

Link is here

EDIT: READY FOR QC CHECKS

EDIT 2: I PROBABLY SHOULD NECRO BUMP BUT IDK, ITS READY FOR GP CHECKS :P.

Oi, trollfreak, if you would like to trade I can take Kyurem-B instead of Mewtwo (unless for some reason you don't want to do both). I've been using Kyurem-B a bit and there's a set I wanted to add that has at least Jibaku's approval (and Theorymon's I think).

Kyurem-Black is just the black sheep in the herd. :(

Hi, I'd like to reserve Thundurus-Therian, assuming that it won't be assigned to a specific person due to it being a new Pokemon.

EDIT: Placeholder/WIP thread will be up later on today.
 
#25
I would like to reserve Smeargle, I have some good experience with the bloke in Ubers.

EDIT: If not Smeargle then I would like to do Groudon, I have lots of experience with him as well. I see that Poppy uploaded an Offensive SR version, are other sets still available? I feel like the metagame has changed substantially and he could use some new information.
