I'm not sure what a good neutral damage check would be, but:I personally use:
252 Atk / 8 Def / 248 Spe Jolly on Mega Gyarados, it's the only poke (bar Milotic who never run full speed investment) who sits on 81 Speed tier and it won't need the extra point in speed, because even after a DD it'll outrun 145+ by 1 point. I know it's not much of a difference, but that one extra defense point could make the difference between winning and losing a game :]
I don't think it's very relevant anymore.
I don't think so. If it wasn't mentioned in the analysis I don't think it's worth a mention.
?In this thread, you may suggest EV Spreads and Natures for Pokemon of all ranks, with the exception of E-Rank.(standard or otherwise). If the Spread and Nature you are suggesting is not standard, you must provide rational reasoning for why these non-standard Spreads are viable and effective. You must also provide as of what the Spread does.
Changed :)AV Hoopa-u:252 Atk/16HP/240spd adamant , 16hp for maximize recovery with drain punch ,his investiment in spd+AV allows him to enter on many special shots
252 SpA Life Orb Latios Draco Meteor vs. 16 HP / 240 SpD Assault Vest Hoopa: 122-146 (40 - 47.8%) -- guaranteed 3HKO
252 SpA Mega Charizard Y Fire Blast vs. 16 HP / 240 SpD Assault Vest Hoopa in Sun: 141-166 (46.2 - 54.4%) -- 54.3% chance to 2HKO
There is some EVs missing, I think you mean 252 Spe.Life Orb Attacker
76 Atk / 180 SpA / 216 Spe
76 EVs go into Attack to allow Tornadus-T to specifically OHKO Tyranitar and Excadrill with Superpower and to be able to deal some damage with its other physical move, U-turn. 216 Speed investment with a Naive nature is all it needs to outspeed Pokemon that are base 115 Speed and under, such as Choice Scarf Tyranitar. The rest is dumped into Special Attack so that Hurricane can hit as hard as possible. Finally, Life Orb is the item of choice, as it bolsters attacking power, and the recoil isn't much of a problem due to Regenerator.
Calculus is your friend here! Not really, moreso statistics and a game theory matrix.76 + 180 + 216 = 472 though. There are 36 EVs missing from the spread.
While I do agree that max speed should be run on thundurus, it is not because of tornadus.Calculus is your friend here! Not really, moreso statistics and a game theory matrix.
The solution here is simple, put the 36 missing EVs in speed so you have maxed speed to tie with opposing tornadus.
I didn't say tornadus-I. When I just said Tornadus, I was referring to therian. We weren't discussing thundurus at all, I'm not sure where you're getting the thundurus part.While I do agree that max speed should be run on thundurus, it is not because of tornadus.
Nobody runs Tornadus-I
