Awesome X-act ill be waiting
I don't know if this is addressed to me, but just wanted to clear up that I didn't say that Chomp is uber because of its usage, I'm just not surprised that it's first in usage...What? Garchomp isn't uber because it's #1 in usage lol.
And more people need to play Suspect. I just keep fighting the same people over and over.
Even Primeape is usefull, so it's not that surprising for me ;). But you made me curious - what set you're using for Uber Milotic ? :DAll those Uber Milotic usages are probably mine (yes, I use Milotic in Uber and it works)
Are you serious? If those Pokemon are too powerful for UU, they would go to BL, and they would still not be in UU. So why not just play on the ladder to win, instead of to make a Pokemon miss a tier?Smogoneers, if we don't want Cresselia/Heracross/Dragonite/Porygon-Z/Alakazam/Rhyperior in UU, make a team with the ones you don't want in UU, do ten ladder matches every day of the month and their usage will rise.
You pretty much got everything.Hmmm... so many changes.
a) Blissey again in top10. Oh well, it's not that surprising, but still the best special wall in game deserves that top10.
b) Porygon2 stays in UU. Yeah, good to see ;). UU Trick Room or Speed-Mixed team can't exist without Porygon2.
c) Giratina-O 12 place. Wow, kinda surprising, but I guess Giratina's bulk and probably the best Uber stall breaker is something, that players can't ignore anymore ;).
d) Scizor only 16th in Ubers. Surprising, I remember when it was in top10. It's really good pokemon in Ubers with great typing, good priority and enough power to be deadly even in Ubers. And thanks to Roost it can absorb those Dragon and Ice type attacks flying everywhere. It should be used more. But that's me.
e) And Garchomp out of top10 in Ubers. Not that surprising, but still Garchomp is great there not only as a revenge killer, but also it may sweep on its own. I think he'll come back to top10 in next month.
f) Donphan and Dugtrio in UU. Well, interesting ;). Stall will have hard time with CB Dugtrio. But I'm afraid it'll be banned. I just feel it.
g) Umbreon in OU. Ok, I guess I'm not the only one being surprised with this ? Especially with all those Lucarios and Scizor running rampant everywhere. I think that's even more surprising then high usage of Electivire.
Even Primeape is usefull, so it's not that surprising for me ;). But you made me curious - what set you're using for Uber Milotic ? :D
Well... Umbreon counters Latias nicely, but Blissey, Defensive TTar and Steel types also do this nicely, so yeah, I don't get it. Mean Look + Baton pass would be effective with Umbreon being much faster.Im intrested to see what umbreon can do.
Mean look and baton pass?
And lose to Payback/entry hazards Spun away.Deoxys-S Taunts it badly,
Lum BerryDarkrai just put it into sleep.
it'll probably still pull off an entry hazard before switching away to Blissey.Shaymin-S may flinch it
Speaking of which, when are you making that RMT?All those Uber Milotic usages are probably mine (yes, I use Milotic in Uber and it works)
True, however it survives a hit and Taunted Forry won't do anything usefull. Ok, I may call it a draw as none of them will put entry hazards in this situation. But I still think that something Taunt-weak like Forry in fast paced metagame like Ubers on a lead is strange...And lose to Payback/entry hazards Spun away.
Dark Void has quite solid accuracy, so it may hit twice in a row, so Forry may put maximum one set of entry hazards. Darkrai may also run Taunt. I think it's worth a shot with Forry being one of the most used Ubers leads (strange, but oh well).Lum Berry
Well, it depends on hax here, but 60% chance to flinch is good enough and it's not resisted, so... Forry may be in deep trouble. However Light Screen may help here, so it's still an option for Forry.it'll probably still pull off an entry hazard before switching away to Blissey.
Still CB U-Turn is as usefull as ever and may put some pressure against stall with some good switches and smart predictions. It's a good reason, but still offensive teams are really popular, so I still don't think that Scizor should be only 16th.Scizor needs to be used more, but i think it was the increase of stall that put it out of commission for the month
Yeah, and those other Latias checks/counters have either access to Stealth Rock or a lot more offensive power, supporting the team more than Umbreon could ever do. A bit confused myself here.Well... Umbreon counters Latias nicely, but Blissey, Defensive TTar and Steel types also do this nicely, so yeah, I don't get it. Mean Look + Baton pass would be effective with Umbreon being much faster.
And yeah, I forgot to mention one thing. Forretress... 9 place in Ubers lead ?! Deoxys-S Taunts it badly, Kyogre laughs on it, Dialga with fire attack also doesn't mind Forry. Darkrai just put it into sleep. Shaymin-S may flinch it with Air Slash. Only Groudon have problems and only if he lacks Fire Punch. Ok, that's something I don't get it as most leads beat it quite badly in Ubers.
Maybe I'm missing something, but how does that have anything over Scarf Palkia besides Hypnosis? I guess it has 5 base more Hp and SpDef, but Palkia has 19 more speed, a huge 50 more SpAtk and double the Atk in case it runs Aqua Tail for Blissey. Add that to a stronger Dragon attack (with STAB), meaning no need to use Ice Beam and I can't see how Milotic really does anything.Milotic@Choice Scarf
Timid, 6 HP, 252 SpA, 252 Spe
I haven't seen a single Crobat lead in OU...At all.20 | Crobat | 9832 | 1.43
That actually seems much more reasonable so the uu ladder wont be insanely broken until we get new suspects (which took awhile).
If the administration deemed a suspect to be broken, they reserved the right to immediately pull it out, a la Deoxys-e in the Suspect Ladder. I don't see why this would be any different, if they prove as broken as the hype suggests.
The most reasonable thing to do is to plunge them straight to UU and see how they fare. If they are broken, it wouldn't take too long to realise, right?
Depends really. People seem more accepting when stuff is already labeled in a particular tier, whereas if something is in limbo I think people are more open minded in the testing process. Garchomp, deoxys etc. took long enough.The most reasonable thing to do is to plunge them straight to UU and see how they fare. If they are broken, it wouldn't take too long to realise, right?
That is highly doubful. Ever game that counts uses Sleep Clause, and Hypnosis is inferior to Darkrai's Dark Void. Also, as any Darkrai-loving Ubers player could tell you, even Dark Void's accuracy can be scary, so I would not want to bet my chances of winning on a 60% Hypnosis. Honestly, I see little reason to use Scarf Milotic instead of Scarf Kyogre.Hypnosis is one of the best moves to use in Uber. I am making a RMT and I will post it today or tomorrow. Then you can read it.
