After that, I'd like to reserve an analysis for Chikorita.
I have to say, I don't know what role Chikorita can fill that isn't done better by Pokemon like Spritzee or Snivy. Could you elaborate on what kind of set you'd have on the analysis that makes Chikorita worthy of a full one?

Otherwise, you can always go for Chikorita in the pseudo-analysis thread.
Well, it's sort of an anti-lead. Relying on the abundance of ground and rock types as setters, Chikorita can function well with magic coat and attract to immobilize pokemon, with HP Fire/Fighting to take care of pawniard. Snivy doesn't know magic coat, and isn't quite as bulky as Chikorita. (In fact, all of it's stats sans speed are inferior to Chikorita's) Spritzee could do this, but it's lacks STAB against rock and ground types. I'll PM you some replays of this set if you would like to see it in action.
I'd like to add to or change the Tirtouga defensive set, with the set below:
Tirtouga @ Eviolite
Ability: Solid Rock
Level: 5
EVs: 164 HP / 52 Atk / 92 Def / 156 SpD / 20 Spe
Careful Nature
- Aqua Jet/Liquidation
- Knock Off
- Stealth Rock
- Stone Edge

imo this set is better than the current defensive set on the smogon website. Rather than passively fishing for scald burns with its weak special attack stat, this takes takes advantage of Tirouga's strong attack stat to deal with flying types - primarily vullaby. This set can switch into flying types with or without its evio still intact, and then has great utility with strong STABs, knock off or stealth rocks.

If anybody would like to write one of the following, feel free to reserve it here:
Minccino (Full Analysis)
Geodude-A (Magnet Pull)
Ponyta (Physical Utility) --> this is a rewrite of the on-site analysis that should mention High Horsepower and Berry Juice. Feel free to base yours off the on-site set.
Ok. I'm Reserving the Spinarak Revamp.
Sorry for taking too long, but I won't make it anymore. It's hard to write an analysis.
