Salazzle I think should be moved up, just seems much better than the others in his ranking.
Celestella and Dialaga need a move up the bench, they have proved quit enough. I understand the niche is Trick Room however, since they are the dominate setters and make plays in the room, they deserve to be apart from the rest, except maybe Gastrodon. On that note i'm quite suprised on Gastrodons being used and the ones that are not performing (team wise) top tier, as many Bronzong are argubly their. IDK maybe just me, but this summer/last spring I was running Gastrodon and Bronzong together often and they can work well together (and Toxicroak), or at least the same team.Gastrodon is just out flexed litterally right now with Kyogre. Also Talone Flame deserves to move away from that tier with salazzel moving up with him, at least from the reginal events and work done in games, allowing them to progress.
Overall I am sick of Incinerator, also double checked just now to see Lunala and Toxicroak and agreed. Hope to see more of them, it is hard to get a team formed, I went through this, after running Xerneas and Kyogre, Tapu Koko was usually on the squad and honnestly whomever else never seemed to matter as much with those three a a little bulk on Xern and Kyogre, Assult Vest or Choice Koko (prefer Assult Vest personally, but with choice items did well). It's sad seeing that top tier and no other comming close, except Toxicroak as far as being to learn Fake Out then Salazzle and Scafty, I wish so bad was better in this format. He did place top 8 maybe 5th or 6th in a reginal in europe if im not mistaken? IDK I was hype over some non-US placings and teams. When I saw Lunala on almost every team (forgot country, not the frankfort one idt, Lunala did well their though if I remember, and early before US players placed anywhere with him.
PLEASE: Could anyone link me to the November Reginal with Lunala taking great placments, (except when 4th was DQ'd I count that as a win, at least for Lunala) however I think 2 or 3 of the 4 maybe 5 teams with Lunala ran Smeargle, Crowbat ect. If I can get a link to those teams and spreads and even better, just the stream that DQ'd that dude, witch was to harsh. Should have warned him, once, I know pokemon needs to have a good family friendly look as a company, but reading over the rules and Tourney "Professors", I feel he deserved something else not a DQ maybe game lost, or cannot participate in the Online International. I feel bad for the dude, however he should know Nintendo/Pokemon International has a family friendly "vibe" lack of a better word. They have to maintain that type of appearance, and atmosphere during events, to remain on top like they have with kids adults, teens, any damn age. I been playin for 20 years ask my damn sprite while visiting my "Palace of Poon".
I wanted a strong Poison type, as Toxicroak was getting boring and using him can go awesome or not so awesome, depending on the other team and their spreads, he take tons of tinkering to get right or did, for me at least. I never got to get Nagandel to work well, also could have put more time into testing and playing with him. A poison type like that has potential, wouldn't be suprised if a top 4 worlds teams has him by 2022 lol thats the sad part, hopefully we can see more, but with Lunala getting prevelant so will the dark side, Yveltal, witch i'm happy with (sickest team ever to win an event reginals would be a Yveltal Lunala Team? Who could make that happen idk probably nobody, but I would cry tears of joy, even as Xerneas fan, slowly liking yveltal more.
One pokemon I am suprised is not up their, a little suprised at least is Hydregon. Litterally I have so many sets with different spreads and movesets, he could perform great in the right hands and team. Hope we see him this year, at one point. When I did suggest movement of pokemon I did use a bit more of an analytic approach apose to grouping approach, to organize them.
Yuichii was saying the trickroom setters, I agree with setting trickroom, however able to support and output damage in and out of the trick room, (with well balanced stats) can be the deciding factor of your entire teams synergy, kind of in the sense that it's doing more than one role, and doing a good job at them,maybe not the best job but a damn good job with 2 maybe 3 roles. Help main DPS do DPS, while doing massive DPS ect. So many options with Lunala thats the reason it performed in in the same tier as Xerneas and Kyogre, I think those 3 did the best performance wise. That annoying cat that needs to go away, im not including, nobody that I have watched has had serious problems with, but it's little role does help set up and do a little more DPS for free or even free switch in with u-turn, he will die soon, and the person to figure that out, will probably win some events, unless we wait (that new steel type pokemonGo evolved form looks OP, maybe we wait for him... Lunala is versitile and thats the key, it's not set in stone what has to be done or how it needs to be ran. Movepool and Ability, not to mention stats are good, actually I really like the way they distributed his states. Anyway idk hopefully Drifblim can win worlds.
