LilyAC

encore encore encore
is a Tiering Contributor
LilyAC vs Wail Wailord - trying not to lose hope of finishing positive D:
(60) Laroxyl vs kythr (40)
(50) Boulicrok vs (50) Luthier
(65) daunt vs
vs (35) Toadow
(80) dcae vs (20) xavgb - havent heard this name before

not much to say anymore bc it's pretty clear how everyone is performing by now.
i find it interesting that serene hasn't been swapped in over dvs, not because dvs is bad at all, but after losing 2 in a row this would've been the perfect moment

Interesting Trends:
  1. Hyper Offense: Not much else to say except that it is very good in this metagame. We have seen different iteration of hyper offense this SCL, ranging from dcae's innovative Venipede Spikes-stack and Rock Polish Pawniard + Sinistea screens to Laroxyl's sun and Wail's Memento spam.
  2. Biggest Winners: The biggest winners this week were Mareanie, which rose to being the 3rd most used Pokemon and had a respectable 3/5 showing, and Stunky, which went 2/2 on two different HO teams.
  3. Biggest Losers: Staryu continues its downward trend, but it is joined by a surprising pick in Abra, a Pokemon that has been very strong the past couple of weeks. Both Pokemon went 0/1 this week. Pawniard went 1/4 and Koffing went an astonishing 0/2; both Pokemon have been in top 6 usage frequently so this is an interesting trend to say the least. Is this the sign of a meta shifting?
