I was interested to know which Pokemon switch into other Pokemon more often. To do so, I used Colin's latest 'Switch-in' stats and Doug's 'Usage' stats.

What I did is the following: I wrote a simple program that parses through Colin's files, and sums up each switch-in for each Pokemon. Then I divided this total by that Pokemon's usage.

Remember, a Pokemon is said to be 'used' (in Doug's sense) if it was part of a team when a player plays a battle. It doesn't actually need to take part of the battle in order for the usage statistics to mark it as being 'used'. For example, if a player wins 6-0 against another player by sweeping it with his lead Pokemon, Doug's stats would still count all 6 Pokemon of this team as being 'used'. Likewise, if a player forfeits immediately at the start of the game, both players' full team of Pokemon would be counted as being 'used'.

Anyway, here, then, are the average amount of switch-ins (as defined by Colin in his thread) that each Pokemon does in every team. They are listed in the following format:
Code:
<Rank> POKEMON was switched in <average switch-ins> times per usage (<total switch-ins>/<amount of usage>).
For example, from the Standard ladder:
Code:
 15. SCIZOR was switched in 1.284 times per usage (313856/244266).
They can be found in the following links:

Hopefully you'll find this of use.

This is something that is useful to assess how badly a pokemon will get worn down by entry hazards, I guess. Nice work X-Act!

1. CHANSEY was switched in 1.974 times per usage (13903/7043).
2. MILOTIC was switched in 1.512 times per usage (27119/17932).
3. QUAGSIRE was switched in 1.48 times per usage (2362/1595).
4. REGISTEEL was switched in 1.464 times per usage (26781/18291).

6. SLAKING was switched in 1.431 times per usage (1800/1257).

These stats are so awesome though!

this is a very useful and informative list. thank you for your work.

i think it would be good to put minimum usage criteria to filter out said statistical anomalies and get a true ranking system.
