7. FROSLASS (Usages: 4764)

Typical moveset:
- Ice Beam
- Destiny Bond

- Shadow Ball

* Thunderbolt and Taunt can replace any of the four moves listed.
 
Some interesting Standard Metagame statistics compared to last month:

Earthquake is still the most common move
Stealth Rock is used about 1% more than last month
Ice Beam fell from the third-most-used move to the fifth
Close Combat fell in use about 1% this month
Roost is used about 1% more, making it more common than either of the two common stat-ups (Dragon Dance and Sword Dance)
Fire Blast rose in usage over 1%, making it more common than flamethrower this month
 
54. UMBREON (Usages: 12862)

Typical moveset:
- Wish
- Baton Pass
- Mean Look
- Payback

* Curse, Yawn and Toxic can replace any of the four moves listed.
I'm kinda disappointed in this. The only way you can assuredly Pass without being interrupted by some phazer is by using Taunt. Otherwise Umbreon is just setup fodder.

As far as I'm concerned X-Act's moveset program generates a moveset based on the four most common moves. In the October uber statistics the typical moveset was Bulk Up/Draco Meteor/Fire Blast/Rest or something like that
 
Very surprised that Trick on Metagross and Azelf don't even show up in the replaceable moves list. It always seems like people are abusing Trick (and complaining about it) especially when it is bugged on Shoddy and people are constantly taking advantage of it. Both Metagross and Azelf are popular leads, and the leads usually have Trick.

And this:
24. GLISCOR (Usages: 31502)
Typical moveset:
- Earthquake
- Roost
- Swords Dance
- Stealth Rock
* Ice Fang, Baton Pass and Aerial Ace can replace any of the four moves listed.

Good that people aren't just using Gliscor to counter fighters anymore, as it makes a good Baton Passer. Swords Dance as one of the more common moves surprised me. People aren't using it for sweeping right?

np: Biffy Clyro - Shock Shock

This is not true and would like to clarify this. My moveset program provides the moveset that is guaranteed to have been used by at least one team and that is the most likely to be used. When a moveset has more than 4 move options, I list the alternatives; however, these alternatives are as likely to be in the moveset as the moves listed. When no alternatives are listed, it means that the 4 moves listed form a correct moveset on their own.

Oh, you'd be surprised how many teams are SD Gliscor weak right now. Jolly with 216 Spe makes it a pretty deadly sweeper, especially when paired up with Empoleon =P.

2 words: Type coverage.
And the fact that if electivire could take the one hit to use meditate, the metagame would be hopelessly overcentralized and broken.
