*groans in pain* No Leafeon? I was gonna be all creative and do a hail/sun team with Glaceon and Leafeon as sweepers. Poop.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA NO. NO NO NO. Leafeon is way too OP for the tier.

Also, as added perks, it seems I forgot to mention on the list that Beartic is kosher.

Quagsire is already on the list. And why is no one using him!? Oh yeah. Shiftry.

Thinking of making a weatherless team later after Sneezey's team seemed to hold up really well.

A team of completely different Pokemon. Rejoice my brethren, for the time of different team choice has come.

Yeah, you can really see who is becoming the "OU" of this tier. Basically everyone is running weather, and there are a couple of mons you see on pretty much every team.

Weather and Piloswine are quickly becoming the next thing, and it's pretty obvious why. I'm trying to use new Pokemon for that reason. Chances are a counter is hidden in the crowd.

Also, replays are now being included in the OP. Bar the ones that Swampy used a Magneton in.

@Blaze, looking back at our battle, I really made some piss-poor decisions XD
But guess I did okay for a first ever 'competitive' battle

Also, which I could use Gigalith (or Boldore as Giga might be a bit too much for this tier) it would be able to do my Graveler's job much better :/

And for those who are interested in battles: I'm hanging around on PS under the name Escalion

Huh, I completely missed Boldore. Adding that to the list now. Gigalith is very much too much. We don't have Golem for a reason.

On Boldore versus Graveler, I think Boldore has a higher Attack but Graveler has Ground STAB and a much cooler movepool.

Very much what I thought already on Giga XD
And what you say about the 2 is true, and it is exactly the reason why I prefer to use Boldore
I'm using kinda a gimmicky set on it. STAB EQ is nice to have, but not really needed for my set while I DO need the extra power.

Also: Shedinja sweep!
And my Butterfree is beautiful, totally love her

something really evident in my short experience is that your ability to deal with set-up sweepers is going to be a large part of how your team fares

Or there's my personal favorite, Plan D: good ol' "I don't give a damn. Prepare to lose! " brute force retaliation.

I know how to deal with boosters :p It was more from looking at everyone's team and seeing at least on 'mon's use rely on boosting moves.

(My first run was a bit rough, though, since I was using Missy a bit slower than I really should have - she should at least be statted to outrun base 75s so she can taunt them out of their set-ups)

Come onnnnnn Talllooonnnn uuuuuuu know u want to plllaaaaayyyyy.....

I'm joking there! I already know that you don't have much interest since most of your favorites are not in.

Set-up sweepers are powerful in this tier and its the reason why many bulkier Pokemon got put in. But its the Pokemon that can instantly add offensive presence that are going to be big. It's one of the reasons Piloswine can be such a pain to deal with; a good switch-in virtually guarantees a Pokemon is going down and even if not Piloswine still puts people on the backfoot. It's like Sawk in NU versus Throh. Sawk instantly puts pressure while Throh can become unstoppable.

Throh works really well if you can get him going vs. Escalion

Tail Glow Sub Pass Volbeat makes an appearance as well but I really need to give Misdreavus another move as it gets stuck on Audino. Throh though just muscled his way through the team with ChestoRest and Circle Throw with Payback accounting for Ghosts.

First off, it would be nice if people didn't post in the Analysis thread, but I don't mind all too much.

252+ Atk Choice Band Piloswine Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Eviolite Machoke: 201-237 (55.21 - 65.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

It's not like Machoke can switch in on the banded versions. Kinda more a check on those. The more defensive versions this could come in on though.

Revenge!

Testing out a new team results in a Kadabra sweep

I said I was sorry!
And annoyingly enough, because the Tonny replays aren't included, and due to me forgetting to share our hail battle, The replays in the OP make me look like an idiot.

And I've got another idea cooking now, involving another passing whim of mine. Just need to get onto the computer soon...

What's funny was the reason I have Girafarig is because I wanted a strong Psychic type and I didn't see Kadabra I guess, might have to change it up :P

Ugggh this is why a whitelist was so much better.

No Kadabra, no Gurdurr. Hopefully I shouldn't have to explain either.

Okay, back to work than XD

It doesn't really matter all that much what kind of list you use, either a blacklist or whitelist. Point is, it needs to be complete.
But yeah, in that regard a whitelist might be better, and just expand on that list instead of taking mons out of use by blacklist.
