Why isn't Marowak on the Viability Rankings? It can wreck teams apart without the need for support!
I would run physical ninjask; it has access to swords dance to boost, which makes it much more frightening than it is at +0. Also scolipede is probably just better since it doesn't have that awful typing.So you think that those Pee Dons and Arceuses are enuf? You need some real PU mons! As everyones stats become 100/100/100/100/100/100, no need to worry bout them being not bulkeh!
Dedenne @ Petaya Berry
Ability: Cheek Pouch
EVs: 6 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
- Signal Beam
- Parabolic Charge\Nuzzle
The recycle tho. You can also replace Petaya with Sitrus.
Chatot @ Focus Sash
Ability: Keen Eye
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Nasty Plot
- Heat Wave
Huh. Chatter is banned.Now wut? Well, use nasty plot and start sweeping if there be no talonflame of roxx.
Ninjask @ Leftovers
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Bug Buzz
- Giga Drain
- Shadow Ball
It has a decent movepool, and...well, Speed Boost. You can even run a physical ninjask, because it has access to Swords Dance.
Ditto @ Leftovers/Choice Scarf
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 6 SpD
Well... Now Ditto has 100 base HP. When the Opposing Pokemon tries to set up, switch this guy in.
Thats it for now. Ill post more later.
Actually i agree with you over using Scolipede, and you can even use Blaziken.I would run physical ninjask; it has access to swords dance to boost, which makes it much more frightening than it is at +0. Also scolipede is probably just better since it doesn't have that awful typing.
Some Speed-related ideas:What do people think is the ideal way to deal with Speed
Well, Spinda does learn Shadow Ball...Spinda @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 Spe
- Sleep Talk
Spinda for B- rank: Better typing and move set than Malamar. Too bad this rest talk set gets walled by ghost type.
Oml, thank you so much for this! I've been meaning to get around to this but I kept procrastinating on it, you just saved me a ton of work! I'll edit this into the OPPrettyfied the VR
S Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are the pinnacle of the Averagemons metagame. These Pokemon are able to perform a variety of roles very effectively, or can just do one extremely well. Their use has low risk involved and high reward exerted. Pokemon in this rank have very few flaws that are patched up by numerous positive traits. These Pokemon define the metagame.

A Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are fantastic in the Averagemons metagame, and can sweep, support, or wall significant portions of the metagame. These Pokemon require less support than most others to be used effectively and have few flaws that can easily be compensated for when compared to their positive traits. These Pokemon exert a strong presence in the metagame.
B Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are great in the Averagemons metagame. These Pokemon have more notable flaws than those above them that affect how they function in the tier. Their positive traits still outshine their negatives, but they require a bit more team support to bring out their full potential. These Pokemon exert an above average presence in the metagame.
C Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are mediocre in the Averagemons metagame, but have just as many notable flaws that prevent them from being effective. Pokemon in the C tier often require significant support to be effective. Pokemon from this rank tend to face a lot of competition with the more commonly used Pokemon. These Pokemon exert a below average presence in the metagame.
D Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are highly mediocre in the Averagemons metagame, but are viable enough to justify their use on select teams. These Pokemon are only capable of doing their specific task and fail at doing anything more than that. Pokemon from this rank have multiple crippling flaws that prevent them from being successful a majority of the time, and are often severely outclassed because of it. These Pokemon exert a poor presence in the metagame.
Mental Herb blocks Prankster Encore, while Safety Goggles helps with Sand/Hail damage.I'm thinking of a decent set to abuse Final Gambit in this meta, but don't know what item
Ninjask @ ???
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Spe
- Final Gambit
Suicide mon that kills everything, Protect to outspeed everything that isn't boosted.
Thanks TI! With 1 HP Shedinja shouldn't be an issue. In Averagemons it suffers from the same crippling issue as it does in standard tiers, its horrific weakness to hazards and any form of passive damage. Even though its greater speed and attack allow it to more effectively take advantage of the free turns it creates than in standard tiers, I can't see it being too much of a threat.
famous last words before you get rekt by a sab + shed stall teamThanks TI! With 1 HP Shedinja shouldn't be an issue.

Even though its greater speed and attack allow it to more effectively take advantage of the free turns it creates than in standard tiers, I can't see it being too much of a threat.
Wouldn't that be triple priority options? Fake out, Scuker Punch, Shadow Sneak.Some things that look interesting in Averagemons now thanks to ORAS move tutors/ORAS in general/Still may be good.
Has nice utility in Parting shot, semi-reliable recovery with drain punch, taunt to mess with stall, bulk up if you like boosting, knock off, and a decent movepool with things like the elemental punches and GUNK SHOT.
dual priority recovery options, nasty plot, PROTEAN, a wide movepool, stealth rocks, knock off, and more.
Yveltal has knock off and some other support options, along with a free life orb boost to dark type attacks and has U-turn.
Blaziken looks pretty stronk. Speed boost, swords dance, baton pass, an actual movepool. What could possibly go wrong?
Deoxys still exists,still has it's unholy movepool and has cosmic power for extra annoyingness. It does have it's crummy typing though.
Too bad Togekiss is fairy type, i would have otherwise use hustle-extremespeed on it for fun.
