Sorry to derail this thread a bit :z

As someone just entering into the tier, what is the basic breakdown for teams in the tier. What I mean by this what kind of defensive + offensive core set up are you going to see? For example in the 4th gen metagame when Latias and Salamence were around, the steel+dragon set up was apparently what defined the metagame. In the BW1 era: it was a collection of U-turn and Volt Switch users+ a powerful choiced user (most likely Terrakion).

I ask this because coming into the tier the opportunities to ge into good games is quite small (thus little experience) and with so many threats, some which don't even exist in normal OU (which is why I got into dw), it hard to theorymon what it might be >.<
