Hidden Power is kinda gimpy this gen anyways, it's not as powerful or effective as it used to be.So last gen I rnged a lonely, 31/30/31/30/31/30 Hidden Power Fire Giratina due to this being what the analysis on the site suggested for Giratina-O. Now in 6th gen, I see that the suggested spread is Rash without running Hidden power at all.
Is my old Lonely spread still usable? Or has it become not very good with the changes 6th gen brought to the metagame? Should I get another one?
As far as natures for Ubers go, I would shoot for brave (Trick Room support) or Bold (Bird check Support). I would wait for a bit, personally, to see what sets come for mega diancie in ORAS. But yeah, I would scrap that one.Guys, i just got a Diancie with great IVs: 20/ 20/ 31/ 31/ 31/ 31, but with a bad nature: Bashful, which is a neutral nature. Should i keep her or not?
Diancie is looking like it will have a big niche in oras ubers because it can check mega mence/mega ray pretty well, but it needs impish to do that best. Also it will most likely run moonblast to do its job, so I think having spatk iv's would be much better. A +phys def nature is what you want, and most likely -atk, in case you want to run mega diancie (not sure how viable this will be because of other megas, though on teams you would use it you likely wouldn't want to use thing like mrayq anyway). A -spe nature is possible too, but it would let mega diancie's 110 speed stat go to waste.Wow, look at that. Should I keep this or not? Dem IVs though.
HP:31/Atk: 27/Def: 27/x/Sp Def: 31/Spe: 31
Edit: After looking at the Ubers Analysis and seeing that Impish is useful and considering that Careful might be viable as a special wall, keeping.
Yeah, that's definitely a solid spread. With Rock Polish Mega Diancie you're probably going to be using Rash (or Naive) anyways, so the SPD stat doesn't really matter much.I just got this Diancie:
It has really good IVS (Minus that SPD) but its a Rash Nature: 31/31/31/31/6/31
Maybe a Rock Polish Sweeper Mega Diancie?
Outspeeding stuff like Terrakion and Keldeo and tying with Lat@s is a pretty big deal. Also, it's in the analysis. http://www.smogon.com/dex/xy/pokemon/diancieDiance sets in XY Ubers are defensive. Right now for ORAS Ubers I see no reason why offensive Mega Diance would always want Spe+ over SpA+.
