Could someone explain why dragon rage and metronome are used in ubers?
Actually Standard is the metagame where Stealth Rock is used the LEAST.Also, it turns out that Stealth Rock is, contrary to popular opinion, more common in ubers than in standard.
Except if you'd want to know how often a Pokemon is used, you could just check the server statistics thread.Actually, I'm not too surprised at Sub > Surf. Almost every sweeper can utilise a Substitute moveset, whereas only Water types can really use Surf. What I find really interesting are things like Meteor Mash and Dynamicpunch in OU, because there are pokemon specific moves. It gives a good indication of how often a pokemon is used.
Actually, if you factor in how often OU Standard is played compared to the amount of Uber games, and that ubers often have to re-set them due to Forretress being prominant in stall teams, almost more than in Standard stall, and as Doug said, the people who just start and don't know anything pick their favorites, and go into it with Alakazam, Sceptile, Regice, Dusknoir, Azelf, and Ninjask and think it will work with no rocks.nice quote. what are saying is wrong here?
if you are saying that stealth rock is less common in ubers than in standard, YOU ARE WRONG. looking at the statistics more pokemon use stealth rock in uber than in standard. it may not seem that way, but it is apparently true
The Explosion thing is unbelievable, lol.
I'm kind of surprised that Reflect is so much higher than Light Screen to be honest; I guess the fact that so many users of the moves are weak to Pursuit must have something to do with it, but I wouldn't have expected the gap between them to be as large as it is.
