On another note, I just wanted to make a quick response to your post. Your post completely failed to explain what has changed for Mega Pinsir at all, and it just tells us what it does, which is common knowledge. Furthermore, I just want to point out that nothing has actually changed in Mega Pinsir's favor, matter of fact, things have gotten worse for it. A good example of this is Mega Crucibelle rising to dominance post-Zygarde's ban. Not only does Mega Crucibelle give Mega Pinsir competition for the mega slot, it's also the best offensive check to it. If anything, I'd drop Mega Pinsir right now.things
I actually disagree with this. Snaelstrom just doesn't check a whole lot in a metagame that is dominated by Tornadus-T, offensive Rock-types, and Electric-types like Tapu Koko and Rotom-W. To add onto that, it is easily overwhelmed by Landorus-T and Garchomp, the 2 main offensive Ground-types. You mention how it is a reliable Stealth Rock setter, but Tornadus-T and Rotom-W come in on it for forever. Additionally, the necessity of having to run Spiky Shield means that Snaelstrom is quite the momentum sink against properly built teams. To be frank, I believe that there is little to no reason to run Snaelstrom in the current meta, despite it being able to soft check a bunch of different Pokemon.Snaelstrom potentially moving to BL is a farce. I agree that the removal of Zygarde didn't do it any favors, as Snaelstrom can't really serve as a counter to most sets of Garchomp. But Snaelstrom is still incredibly bulky, and I'm still personally using it as a defensive core with Defog Gliscor and Wish Jumbao. I think people are underestimating how good Poison Heal is as an ability; it allows it to simultaneously soak up status and heal good chunks of damage. Combined with Spiky Shield and SR, and you have yourself a reliable rocks setter that can come in frequently throughout the match.
I certainly don't think it's A material or anything, but the idea that its entire viability is gone now that Zygarde has been banned is not true.
