Choose 2008-7, standard, and unweighted. As a general assumption, the higher they are in the list, the more used they are and therfore the more wanted they are.

lol but rember you can have the top 6 pokemon ou pokemon on your team and it will still be bad. It really depends on what you wish to use them for.

Like houdoom over heatran,, why would you do such a thing? Well mabye houndooms speed and nasty plot move suit your team beter than a slow bulky heatran and choice scarf is not an ideal opptiomn eg you have another special sweeper with choice scarf.


these kinda things need to allways be taken into account,.

I fail to see what was "Lol" about my post. I was not making any reference to how good they are or how well they work together, but to how popular they are. Shoddy is the most reliable representation of today's metagame available. As such all tiers and usability are the same and trends on shoddy will largely match the metagame too. It was in no way strategic advice, but merely something to take into account while answering the question at hand: Are these wanted pokemon?

Hitmonlee: Not very popular but EV train in Attack and Speed for a physical sweeper.

Kadabra -> Alakazam: One of the leading special sweepers. Sp. Atk and Speed.

Charizard: Can be either physical or special sweeper. I remember something about Belly Drum and Salac Berry, so better physical.

Kabutops: See Hitmonlee.

Machoke -> Machamp: See Hitmonlee. If the Guts ability is there have it hold Toxic Orb to poison it to activate attack boost.

Houndoom: See Alakazam.

I have never actually battled though. It's amazing I still remember everything after over half a year of not playing. You seem to need a more defensive member to possibly replace Charizard or Hitmonlee though, if this is a team you're going competitive with.

Hitmonlee:

Item: Choice Scarf
EVs: 252 Atk / 6 SpD / 252 Spe
Nature: Adamant
Moveset:
~ Close Combat
~ Stone Edge
~ Blaze Kick
~ Earthquake

Remember, Choice Scarf boosts your speed by 50%, but you will be restricted to one move until you switch out. 372 Attack with 410 speed (as long as you have 31 IVs for both stats) should be enough to be a good physical sweeper.


Will do the other five when I find the time.

LO Hitmonlee is a beast, I find there's rarely a moment all that speed is needed other than for other scarfers.

I've used them all, but then again I've used corsola and octillery :P

But yeah, sites like this are full of people looking for anything and everything, you're bound to find someone after them all. If all else fails you can shove them in the GTS, but none of the pokes up there are "WTF wUd I wont dat 4!!!1111!!!" lol. All are vary viable pokes that can be used.
